    I'm enjoing it a lot
    Yeap, one of the bests with slam dunk, one outs and hajime no ippo
    The great thing is, Major continues to get better and better with each season. Personally, it tops Slam Dunk and One Outs for me, although is on par with Hajime no Ippo.

    Shinkai is awesome. A Miyazaki in the making. :yes:
    That's what other reviews says too, and it shows.:yes:

    My next 'want too watch' series was Angel Beats!, it was a good one overall even if some characters were generic and one dimensional

    I had similar feelings towards the series - SO bad, not even in a good way, but strangely watchable all the same. :hmmmm2:

    :sadnod: definitely, I'm wondering how such a simple series can be so confusing?

    Myself, I just really didn't like Yoite. :no:

    The Pudding Earl is apparently sending me all of her original Dragonball manga for my birthday! I expressed an interest months ago when she said she was planning on selling the series, but didn't expect this at all. It has left me wondering what to do with the money I got though - between that and Rave Master, I won't be short on reading material for a while!

    Oh, wait, there's a Steam sale on. :awesome:

    Be assured to watch Hoshi o Ou Kodomo, his latest film. It's effectively the Ghibli film that Ghibli didn't create.

    My next 'want too watch' series was Angel Beats!, it was a good one overall even if some characters were generic and one dimensional
    I liked the fact that they were generic, character design included. I could compare it with a good remix of a familiar song. We have everything there for the standard eroge adaptation, and then it's remixed beyond belief until something different and, in this case, better has come out of it.

    Haha, Hagure Yuusha no Estetica is something else. Despite the excessive fan service, I can't help but find this anime enjoyable to watch, largely down to our main protagonist. The guy is an absolute bad ass. :giggle:

    Suffice to say, you certainly possess a penchant for buying anime and manga, even if it's readily available more, ahem, "affordably" online. Still, you can't really go wrong with One Piece, a worthwhile purchase.

    Well that's definitely in my 'too watch list'

    Yeah, I don't think the fact that the characters and the setting is eroge-like is bad thing since it was handled well plus the plot was decent and I did get a few laughs from it too.

    I don't particularly like most of the characters :no: I'd like to say Yoite was especially odd but compared to the rest of the series...I reckon he fits right in...which might be the problem

    And aww that's really cool! :cute: excellent and really lovely birthday gift...hope you enjoy it! I'm sure you'll find some way of parting with your extra money :laugh:

    Also I realise I forgot to say happy birthday for the other day :adore:

    So glad I can't use steam anymore...poor poor wallet

    I have tended to be a bit more 'affordable' when it comes to anime in the past, but I've always found reading manga on a screen very tedious and time consuming.

    And it's silly, but my manga collection is one of the few things I'm kind of proud of, half a decade of research and buying and effort, following some series for most of the five years (Negima, Excel saga etc)

    :ditto:

    My spending on anime has dropped hugely, just the occasional box set at Christmas/an expo, but my manga collection has probably doubled since the start of 2012, and it wasn't small to begin with! I'd just rather buy it. Does help that I've come across some amazing deals recently. :yes:

    I echo the enjoying buying manga feeling :yep: It's nice to hold a book in your hands...and to get the matching set...reading off screens tends to give me a headache even at the best of times

    I also think buying series' a bit at a time adds something. Manga tends to be released periodically...so there's that suspense which can be lost if you're reading it all in one go electronically (and we've all done that thing where you start reading a series and read it all in one go :mmm:)

    As for anime the collector spirit wins out again for me, I love box sets, I like seeing my favourite series' displayed on my shelf....I quite like places like crunchyroll and the funimation youtube channel...I don't like to waste money so being able to watch a series legally without having to commit is great (like watching a series on tv)...then if I love it I'll be really motivated to buy it...and probably spend extra on a collector's set if it's realy really good

    I'm also the sort of person who feels guilty even taking complimentary mints :o: I couldn't watch...more affordably...for long, without wanting to pay for what I was getting (Series with no plans for release over here obviously being an exception...as there's then no way to pay for them...think I'd just get misplaced guilt then :giggle:)
