    I would love a TSR AniSoc meet up! I've been using MAL for years, only heard of anime planet recently from this thread though I think I prefer the MAL layout.

    On a side note, finished Kids on the Slope. A good show that was good at playing the emotional cards but I'm still left with questions and not a very satisfied feeling. Idk what it is about Watanabe but I can never fully enjoy his works. I'm reading the manga now, I'm surprised how much Watanabe left out (literally years!) I'll be buying the blu ray release this month though, I'm interested to see how the dub will be especially since Chris Patton will be voicing Kaoru :love:

    I showed my friends Lucky Star, they all pointed out the best part was:


    Is there any god-sent anime which is entirely animated in that over dramatic style?

    Aside from the short Anime Tenchou (which is where that guy is originally from), the recent Jojo's Bizarre Adventure series is the closest thing I can think of. :yes:

    MAL's anime list system drives me crazy its so useless compared to A-P but I use both still



    As for the general meetup that is a no from me. Don't really know anybody that well from that thread plus august is pretty rammed for me. An AniSoc meetup though would be most interesting!

    I'd be willing to meet if it was within the midlands, getting to london is pretyy expensive for me. I'd suggest we meet at con that we'll be going to.

    I'll be going to jcon in derby and possibly alcon in Leicester. Possibly a mcm too but depends on money really.

    I read the fairy tail manga

    Can someone recommend me an anime that does NOT revolve around high school or high school kids? It feels like the last stream of shows I have seen is of this nature which I'm getting sick of. Preferably dubbed though I don't mind subbed. Thanks in advance!

    Pleasantly surprised to see so much interest in an Anime Soc meetup, I didn't think there was enough active chat going on for people to want to meet each other! I'd be interested, though like ianh16, the midlands would be easier for me. Or North Wales, but I doubt that's easy for anyone else. :p: I only really go to the Telford MCM expo though, and that's already been this year.

    There's a load out there. :yes: Baccano!, Claymore, Haibane Renmei, Outlaw Star and Spice & Wolf are just a few good series that I know are dubbed.

    Not making any promises, but I might be able to make some kind of offline meeting. The midlands or London are about equally doable from where I am (I have relatives near Birmingham who'd probably let me stay overnight, if necessary).

    Still burning through my manga backlog... tonight I finished Pluto, a fantastic series THAT ACTUALLY ENDED WELL! I thought the final volume wrapped everything up very nicely. Deserves its Top 50 ranking on A-P.

    Birmingham was were we had the last one, although we had vin around to act as a tour guide that time. I'd be happy going anywhere, as long as somebody in the group knows the good places to meet/eat/buy manga. :yes:

    Been doing a movie marathon- watched about ten films so far think I can get one or two more in (maybe some Ghibli rewatch).
    Had so much fun doing it as well

    Midlands sounds decent as London would be harder travel/money wise being in the north and all.

    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:
    Can't we arrange an anime soc meet up then!? That'd be so awsume! Ill have to travel a lot though (don't live in the uk) but if I get to meet fellow anime/manga fans, it'll be worth it!! :excited:

    Ah, no, I was using 'make' in the sense of 'make it to' or 'get to' something, rather than 'create' something. Sorry!

    Where I'm living at the moment isn't bad for eating & drinking but there's nowhere to buy anime/manga, and the transport links aren't as good as, for example, Birmingham or London.
