Mamoru Hosoda is quickly becoming one of my new favorite film auteurs, and his latest film "The Boy and The Beast" looks simply awesome, with anthropomorphic animal beings, interacting with humans.





But despite what a lot of fans and non-fans may say otherwise, anime KIND OF sucks when it comes to its monsters and similar creature characters.

True, there's plenty of non-humans to go around. But the vast majority of which are so painfully human looking, that they end up being surprisingly unimaginative. Plus, when a unique fantasy creature does pop up in an anime film or TV series, it's usually done as expendable cannon-fodder. Thus, never getting a chance to be characters in their own rights.

And this is not counting the single, alone 'token creature' that assists the largely human or human-looking cast.

There's wonderful exceptions to this unspoken rule however, including the likes of "Digimon", "Dragon Ball Z", "Spirited Away", "Blue Submarine no. 6", "Space Dandy", "My Neighbor Totoro", "Ultraman Jonias", "Pokemon", "GeGeGe no Kitaro", and "Devilman". And the trailer above certainly adds to this overlooked tradition!

My question onto you guys, is there any other anime or even manga (fancy Japanese comic books), that have great, imaginative-looking, creature characters? Or at least monsters with developed personalities?

Since we're adding manga, I should give a shout out to the obscure 1994-1995 "Metal Guardian Faust", which featured some great personality filled robot heroes and villains. My personal favorite being Dancer - an endearing, ultimately bittersweet robotic crab on wheels.
