    This show is going to be censored to all hell.
    So how does censoring work in Japan? Haven't read Pupa so wouldn't know the extent of its possible censoring.

    Afro Samurai immediately springs to mind. It's not quite as good (IMO), but it has the same combination of well animated sword fights with hip hop. :yes:
    I'll check it out, thank you!!

    Haven't seen Samurai Champloo, but my mate gave it to me so I'll have to go watch that. I started watching Cowboy Bebop but I haven't gotten around to finishing it. Darker Than Black is really good, I would say I preferred Stein's Gate though, that was one hell of a show.
    You'll love it! I hope you will anyway, haha. Are you going to watch it subbed or dubbed?

    Think I'll go for Steins's Gate first, then either Bebop or Afro Samurai - and I'll save Darker Than Black for the hols...


    So much to look forward to... :moon:

    Finally got back into After School Nightmare after waiting almost a month for vol. 9 to be posted from America, and wow, so many big revelations and plot twists! I only hope the ending lives up to the rest of the series, as that's often where good series go bad. :s: Won't have to wait long to find out though, as I already have volume 10.

    The ending of Karakuri Odette (which I finished yesterday) was a little bit rushed, and my favourite character got virtually written out of the last two volumes (apparently he wasn't popular with a lot of fans, according to the author's end comments :s:), but it was never a masterpiece to begin with. Cute, though.

    The plan was to start Asano Inio's What a Wonderful World! next, but the price of the first volume suddenly doubled. :sigh: It's not horrendously expensive, but enough for me to put it off for now. Will likely go for Chrno Crusade instead.

    Hi guys, I haven't been on the thread yet although I've joined the society

    I haven't watched any animes in a long time and the ones I have watched are childish

    Ones I've watched.....

    Pokemon was my first i think or i think it was Avatar: The Last Airbender, maybe even the YuGiOh ones

    i also watched this one called Mew Mew Power as a child its Japanese Shojo

    I watched the Dragon ball ones and Digimon too and I've started watching a bit of Naruto as well

    i think i might have watched more but i can't remember

    I heard Death Note was good, I'll probably start watching that

    The third berserk film. I knew what was coming but still.:erm: As with the others the animation was a bit funny, good when the usual 2D, some of the backgrounds were rather pretty, however not so good looking when the more fluid cg was up.

    That scene was worse than in the series. It was very clear to see he wasnt interested in Casca, he just wanted to torture guts.


    They've had characters from later such as the holy knights and puck(?) made appearances in the background, oh and in the Op of course, so hopefully there will be more to come. Hmmm "hopefully" seems such a strange word to use with a series that can be so unpleasant at times.

    There's been rumors that they're making another movie. (Lets hope so).

    I'm just about on the edge of dropping the series for good. What pissed me off wasn't the fan service but was the amount of bull that wood guy was spewing about the heart and comrades which we've heard a million times already.
    I wouldn't go so far as to drop it unless the series takes a major change for the worse, but, Hiro Mashima has to stop with the fan service!

    I think the biggest WTF moment for me recently was the intro scene to NouCome, which was ingenious.

    ah that was brilliant, i seriously thought it would just keep on going for the rest of the ep :mmm: :lolwut:

    I wouldn't have minded if they did keep it going all episode. :giggle: Though the choices the main character had to make and the other weird characters were also great.

    Ok guys. I like to think that I am a good human being. And I refuse to see myself as a good being If I don't recommend to all you mophuckers to watch 'swords of the strangers' one of the best movies I have watched of all time. Long story short Its about Samurai's...badass samurais.

    Is it not worth it? I've read the manga so I'd thought I'd give the anime a go but I may not if it is that bad.
    It's not bad, its just that it is exactly how he described it 'overhyped' Its still a great anime nevertheless but not as good as some people make it out to be.

    Hopefully it won't be a one sided massacre anymore since the captains have regained their bankai.

    Finished Legend of the Galactic Heroes; a bittersweet ending, but it wrapped everything up nicely. Shame so many awesome characters had to die.

    Rather than start a new series to replace it, I'll be resuming Galactic Cyclone Bryger - need to clear some things from my ever growing stalled list. :p:

    Since i've been ill I managed to complete my marathon of AOT in one day. Overall a good series I would say but I stand by what said about the hype. However some idiot managed to ruin my day by posting some massive spoilers for the future.

    I was searching on Google for Lelouch to use as a photoshop render and the first link I see is a video thumbnail of Suzaku impaling Lelouch with the title as "LELOUCH DIES". I was devastated lol.
