    Let me know if this is a good shopping site for anime. Still trying to figure it out.

    It's one of those weird things where everybody has their own definition of what exactly is & isn't. For me personally there are classics like Akira and Ghost in the Shell, and even some series like The Big O, but I don't consider stuff like Yu-Gi-Oh, Dragonball Z, or Pokemon to be anime since they are little more than cartoons marketing the merchandise & games.
    But, that's just me. :confused:

    Aeon Flux as a full feature movie? Is this a good thing?

    I think a bad thing. Part of the appeal of Aeon Flux was the style of the animation, certainly not the story lines. I just can visualize a live action version of that world working.
