Ah yes, Vampire Hunter D's hand. The first and only time I saw this excellent anime was with my University's Anime Club (which should have been renamed the Anime-MSTing club). Besides comparing the main villain of this film to Regis Philbin, pointing out bizzare things (that girl's crucifix and shirt being torn off, then magically reappearing two seconds later. gratutious motion lines), the hand did infact prove to be the nail in the coffin for our ridiculing.
When D's hand began to reattach it's self, the room was silent. I uttered in a dopey monotone voice, "Hey look he's giving him self a hand!", the whole room (all nine or so of us) busted out laughing. The person sitting infront of me turned around and said jokingly "Of course you know that you will never be forgiven for that". A fine piece of 80's Anime totally desecrated by me, maybe some folks will never have any kind of respect for this film ever again.
