I know this is already answered, but I was just going to keep putting up longer and longer comments. Technically the genre defining Harem Anime/Manga is Tenchi Muyo, so I think it deserves a mention. The big distinction in favor of Tenchi Muyo is the romance component. While many earlier works may feature a popular guy who is chased by many women, a harem ...

From your description I'm fairly sure it's UFO Robot Grendizer. I believe it was aired in the US as Grandizer (a instead of e) and was part of the "Force Five" serires. When the bad guys attacked, the hero (farm hand Daisuke) would rush to Grendizer who was hidden inside a cave and jump into the cockpit while transforming into his real identity as the ...

It is generally thought that Rumiko Takahashi (the best selling female Manga author in history) is the one who started the Harem genre, or at the very least the one who popularized it. Which one of her works can be considered as the first depends on how you define Harem anime. If you define it as one person (any gender) being romantically sought after by the ...

I think you're looking for Strait Jacket, (2008). In a world where sorcery and science co-exist, the power of magic comes with a price: Humans who do not take proper precautions are transformed into horrific demons. Those who destroy these demons - and run the highest risk of all - are tactical sorcerists known as Strait Jackets. It was shown ...

Sounds like Unico in the Island of Magic The summary on Wikipedia only mentions the block people being used as slaves, but they certainly look like they could be used as the walls in a castle. Otherwise, you still have the evil wizard and the young apprentice working to protect his sister while turning people into blocks.

I believe the term you're looking for is Chibi Chibi (ちび or チビ) is a Japanese slang word meaning "short person" or "small child". Chibi style is usually used in depicting scenes which are cute and/or humorous, and it is extremely rare for it to be used for an entire anime series. It is quite popular in manga, however.

I think the weaponry/superpower you refer to may be searched for under these terms: monofilament wire monomolecular wire razor floss This page (tvtropes "razor floss") references a lot of anime and manga where this features - finding a match for what you are looking for from the list will require more information from you. Here is an example from ...

Sounds like Y Mabinogi (AKA Otherworld) from 2003 which is based on Welsh myth. The film is currently available in its entirety on Youtube. Around 46:30, you can see the toddler thrown into the bonfire in the barn and then a soldier whose head was bashed in released from the sack he was hiding in; around 50:40 is when the cauldron (which revives the dead) ...

I'm almost tempted to say it's "Warriors of the Wind", which is a bastardized version of the anime classic Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. Everything sort of matches your description, though I'm having trouble with the Tabasco ice cream. In the original Japanese version there was a scene where Nausicaa and Asbel are eating nuts inside an underground ...

Could it be Tranzor Z? (aka Mazinger Z) I know that the villain had a henchman that was 1/2 woman/man split down the middel of his/her face and the robot lived in an underground cave. I realize that it is somewhat different than the things you recalled, but some similarities and aired in the US during the correct time period. Some pics here to jog your ...

Guest, I think the best match in Crow T Robot's link above would be the Korean pseudo-anime film Space Transformers (AKA Micro-Commando Diatron-5) from 1985, where Ivy, a special girl who protects the universe, is infected with bacteria and a special team is shrunk down and injected into her to battle it. The entire movie is currently available on Youtube ...

Per Krazer's answer, the only Disney channel show that seems to fit the bill is Ōban Star-Racers. Notably, the show is in an anime style, the primary character (Molly) has red hair and there are many races seen. She also has an extensive fan-base and several friends. The description on Wikipedia closely mirrors your own: In the year 2082, Earth has ...

As you've also tagged this as identify-this-tv-show, I'd like to suggest that you might have watched an episode of Dennou Coil (aka Cyber Coil). It is from 2007 and features children running around in a virtual world. I can distinctly remember a scene in a temple with a torii. a Japanese science fiction anime television series depicting a near future ...

You're most likely thinking of Ikkyu-san, an anime based on the historical Zen Buddhist monk Ikkyuu that chronicles his mischievous childhood adventures at Ankoku Temple. Ending theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVUKPVaxp3g

Could it be Yamato Takeru? One of the descriptions that led me here contains the line: "Takeru, a 12-year-old boy from Earth, who happened to discover the buried robot Susanoo and woke it from its million-year-long sleep. And, as you can see, his friend has pink hair ;)
