    Oh has anyone seen a translation of the text in the last eps ad break?
    I ended up getting Horriblesubs release because I was impatient, and it was translated. :yes: Extracted, copied and pasted.

    Attack on Titan spoilers, maybe?
    What We Can Share So Far: The Walls (1) - The year 784... One blistering hot night, a miner decided to dig under Wall Sina, to live within the inner ring. "Life in Wall Sina would be pretty nice." That thought had come to him suddenly a few days ago, as he dug with his shovel, deep in a coal mine. In a way, you could call it divine inspiration. And so, for the next few days, he wandered along the wall, finally settling on a spot where the dense forest pressed against it. No one would chance upon him, and the overhead leaves would shelter him and his task from the prying eyes of the guards above. On the next night, he began. Using his trusty shovel, the miner began to dig. The work went smoothly, and before long, the pit was as deep as he was tall. When he could no longer fling the dirt outside it, he stuffed it into sacks, climbing a ladder to discard it. Completely dedicated to the task at hand, he took only a few short breaks to drink water and to ease his weary muscles. After spending twenty years of his life digging without a day of rest, the miner knew he was an expert at it. And during that time, he'd learned to dig deeper, more quickly, and more efficiently than anyone else. Tunnels that would stump any other miner were no match for his shovel. But that day was different. He dug for hours, yet never seemed to get anywhere. As he dug, he probed to either side of the main pit with his shovel, but it was of no use. The wall's foundation seemed to go down forever, deep into the earth, blocking his path at every turn. Still, he persevered. Any thought of digging his way to an easy life inside Wall Sina had been long forgotten. He simply wanted to conquer the wall. "I'm willing to bet all the years I've spent digging that I will beat this wall," he said to himself, wiping the sweat from his brow. The hole was more than four or five times the miner's height when he struck hard rock. He wondered, "Bedrock?" But it appeared to be of the same material as the wall's foundation itself. The miner swung his shovel down hard on the rock. The shovel shattered, but the rock was unscathed. The miner sighed, and his sigh was deeper than any hole he'd dug in the previous twenty years.

    What We Can Share So Far: The Walls (2) - With a frown, his friend questioned, "The Wall?" "It's weird, isn't it?" the miner said, lifting his drink to his lips. "Who knew that the wall went so deep underground?" The pair sat across from one another at a table in the back of a tavern in a seedy part of town. Most days, the miner would go there with his friend, his only friend, after work. That day, the day after he'd tried to dig under the wall, they'd gone there as usual, once the workday was done. And then, the miner told his friend the story, certain that his friend could keep a secret. "Maybe we're surrounded by walls not only above the ground, but below the ground, too," said the miner. "Tell me something... What, exactly, are the walls?" His friend cut him off with a cough, glancing around the tavern. The patrons were all busy drinking, hitting on the tavern maid, or yelling at one another. No one was watching them. But even so, the miner decided not to say another word about it. If anyone heard him, the Military Police would be there in an instant. "Does it really matter?" his friend asked. "Just keep on living here as you always have. You're poor, but you have a job every day, and enough money that you can drink. Isn't that enough?" "Yeah," the miner replied. "Yeah, it is. I'll go back to digging. In the end, I guess that's my lot in life." But the next day, the miner didn't show up for work. Nor the next... Nor the day after that. His friend went to his house many times, but never saw any sign of him. The miner had no relatives, nor other close friends, so there was no one to ask where he might have gone. Unsure what to do, his friend eventually went to the Garrison, and told them the whole story. The next day, the Military Police and the Garrison organized a large-scale search party. It was a little excessive for one poor miner, even if that miner was a criminal who'd tried to pass under the walls. His friend couldn't understand why they were so bent on finding him. But they never found a trace of the miner, nor even the pit he'd dug. And one day, his friend also vanished, never to be seen again.

    Looks as though you picked up virtually everything that I didn't. :p:

    I was impressed with this season, more than I thought I'd be at the beginning at least - I was worried when I was putting together the Summer preview thread and virtually everything seemed to be tagged as comedy. :giggle: I'll definitely miss Genshiken Nidaime and Gatchaman Crowds.
    Incidentally, I'm intending to start Gatchaman Crowds soon, likely this upcoming weekend. As for Genshiken Nidaime... Well, you know the reason why I haven't.

    And we back and we back and we back. Started watching durarara! Loving the soundtrack so far... Mysterious as well...

    Episode one review - ooh real mysterious, what? What? Nice beat... Ghost rider... Wha... Hmmm?
    Episode two review - wait? A sentimental story about... Ooooh I see what you did there...

    The soundtrack goes perfectly with each scene, best I've seen in a while, can't really formulate an opinion on this anime just yet though... Have you guys seen durarara? What did you think of it?

    Depends really, it would just be the same jokes all over again, even if its in a different medium. Unless you're planning on buying it (which I wouldn't recommend, since Del Rey dropped it), I'd try reading from the start anyway - you can always skip to where the anime left off if you're not finding it as funny 4th time around. :p:
    okie dokie from the start it is :woo:

    gona miss the epic music and voice acting though

    I just finished the Here is Greenwood manga, which was a fun read. Didn't feel like it had much of an ending, but that's not so important in a comedy series. :nah: I may have to check out the OVA, too. :beard: The vacancy in my reading list will now be filled by Twin Spica, seven volumes of which have been waiting in my unread pile since I picked them up ridiculously cheaply in a charity shop.

    However, I'm close to finishing a couple of other series (Karakuri Odette and After School Nightmare), and have nothing lined up to read next. So if anybody has any manga recommendations, I'd be glad to hear them. As usual, I'm pretty fussy about what I will and will not pick up, but not so much in terms of genre; I'll consider anything that's fully published in English (i.e no ongoing series, non-licensed series, or series that got dropped by their publishers etc), with a preference for anything that isn't shoujo (only because, as you can probably gather from the series mentioned above, I've been reading a lot of shoujo recently and fancy a change :o:). If you're not sure whether something is licensed/completely released in English, just throw the titles at me anyway, and I'll look them up.

    TL;DR: Manga recommendations, please! :blah:

    That's ongoing. :p: I only have a problem with that because I'm already following a lot of ongoing series (A Bride's Story, Yotsuba&!, Spice and Wolf etc), and the wait for new volumes can be quite long. I'd rather have something I can read from start to finish relatively quickly.

    I do have a few ideas of my own (Basilisk, Mermaid Saga, What a Wonderful World! etc), but I always feel that its worth asking around first, as other people might suggest things I haven't thought of/heard of. :beard:

    If you are following so many, wouldn't you get like 1 new chapter a day or something on average?

    I've not stopped to work it out before, but what I do know is, I read more than one chapter a day on average. :p:
