    Hey guys I was just wandering if any of you know of an anime like Kuroko no Basket? Pretty much my favourite anime atm not only because of the sports but he way it has that school life and outside life feeling i.e. when Kagami bumps into Kuroko in the fast food restaurant numerous times.
    If anyone has some suggestions that'd be helpful :yep:
    Slam Dunk? It's old but still hilarious

    I'd really recommend Big Windup! It's about baseball and the team spirit is amazing in this show as well as the intensity of the matches (just like Kuroko). I found myself shouting at the screen when watching some of the matches :')

    Ah thanks for the suggestion, does it have a similar school life aspect to Kuroko no Basket? I don't know what it is but the storyline and characters are so damn cool. Can't wait for season 2 to see Akashi and his emperor eye :awesome:

    Hmm they don't show them in school a lot if that's what you mean but it does revolve around high school boys and there is plenty of comedic moments And yeah I can't wait either lol, been reading the manga though haven't reached the bit where they properly introduce Akashi (I'm around ch.95)

    Hmm I might check it out. I enjoy the shcol life aspect but alos the comedic side to it all.
    Ahh so you're not up to date. Well you'll soon meet them all in the next 20 odd chapters and see akashi in play around 160~ :yep:

    This week's anime episodes have been ridiculously good so far. Chihayafuru 2 ep 21, Hunter x Hunter ep 82 and Date A Live ep 9 were nothing short of epic, Suisei no Gargantia ep 9 was great for shock factor, the 9th eps of Mushibugyou, Red Data Girl and even Crime Edge were better than usual, and Aku no Hana... could hardly be worse than the half episode of slow paced, silent walking I forced myself to sit through last week. :P

    About the only things that aren't way better this week (in my opinion) are Hataraku Maou-sama! (probably due to my usual preference for plot over comedy), and Attack on Titan (which doesn't need to improve as it's consistently awesome).

    Space can always be found! I had a revoltech arrive the other day, and suddenly realised that I could recycle a big stack of paper to make room for it. Me buying revoltechs is good for the environment.

    I'd have a lot more space if the one side of my bedroom wasn't prone to leaking without warning, and if I didn't have to put up with the giant table football table (an old birthday present I didn't ask for, and that my mother won't let me get rid of... might be able to convert it into a bookshelf with a little cardboard and creativity, though). :beard:

    More manga arrived today, the 10th and final volume of RG Veda. I read the 6th volume yesterday, and am really enjoying the series so far!

    At a friend's recommendation, I joined the site Goodreads, which (after I added all the manga I've read, which surprisingly didn't take too long) has provided me with a lot of promising series that I'd not heard of/forgotten about. Better than Amazon's recommendations, at any rate. :p:

    I'm fighting the urge to watch the webstreamed pre-airs of Red Data Girl - as much as a marathon of the final few episodes would be fun, and reduce my backlog of weekly shows, it would mess up my blogging a bit. Also, the animation is definitely the series' strongest point, and webstreams are usually of lower quality... so I think I'll wait a couple more weeks. :p:

    Meh, not sure I'd be up for a general TSR meet, hardly know anybody who posts outside these threads. Still have fond memories of the Anime Soc meetup several years back, though... even if the rain did ruin all the manga I bought that day.

    Almost half way through Drakuun now; I had planned to read one issue a day to make it last, but ~20 pages isn't enough to satisfy me, so it's become more like five or six a day. :p: So far, not as strong as Manabe's other work Outlanders plot-wise, or Caravan Kidd comedy/character-wise, but it's amusing enough. Stellar art and character designs, as always.

    One thing I didn't know until now (despite doing some pretty thourough research, or so I thought :facepalm:) is that there's actually a 5th arc/volume which hasn't been published or even scanlated in English. Not a problem right now - in a way it's probably for the best that I didn't find out until after buying it, otherwise it would have ended up in the pile of good series I'll never read. No doubt I'll be raging once I get to the 24th issue and am unable to continue, though. :bawling:
