    Heavy Metal

    I feel a little bad talking shit about Heavy Metal/Metal Hurlant because it was a great place for alt comics and even inspired a bunch of my favorite manga artists such as Taiyo Matsumoto and Toyokazu Matsunaga, but (for example) Moebius' art doesn't really animate well unless you put a budget behind it. Also: this is some straight up wish fulfilment anime that made babyboomer dudes think every girl's gotta look like a fruit basket and can't wait to bone…
