Learning Japanese and would like some Japanese-subbed sources.

Hi, I'm learning Japanese and am a big fan of anime/manga/tv shows. I'm far enough long in my studies where I would like to start watching/reading them with Japanese subtitles instead of English subtitles. The only problem is... I'm having a hard time finding manga/anime. Any sources for original Japanese manga or Japanese-subbed anime? (Like Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood)

Who and what are on this fabric?

I have some fabric I picked up from a remnant stall a while ago. It has Japanese writing and pictures of faces all over it - is it just a random design or are these characters from some manga\anime? (The place also had Naruto fabric, but there,s no logo I recognise here, nor anything on the selvege.) Picture here. Any ideas? I want to check in case it'll unwittingly offend Japanese speakers!

What anime did I watch as a child?

Some time around 1992-1995 I watched a japanese cartoon on German TV that I'm trying to hunt down again. I can't remember what its called, or all that much about it, so it's been somewhat impossible to hunt it down. [more inside]

Anime That Is Either Scifi or About Traditional Japanese Culture?

Aside from the recent blockbusters, I haven't watched an anime movie (or series) in years. Can anyone suggest a series or movie that that is either in sci-fi genre or has a storyline that deals with traditional Japanese culture?
