    I need a anime suggestions :holmes: looking for a new series to watch
    Back in the day it was all Shaman King, Naruto and Bleach. These days it's more like Hellsing, Deadman Wonderland, Cowboy Bebop etc :holmes:

    Give me your suggestions, I was thinking maybe FMA or Trigun or something :sly:

    So finally got around to watching a bit of Spice and Wolf and it looks good I wanna marathon it but our ani' soc' seems to have picked it up for at least a while.

    On the other hand a cheeky friend made me watch a few episodes of Chu-Bra!! without telling me what it was the premise and plot just seems really strange. Why on earth many people would watch this I don't know :lol:

    Hai guise, I recently watched the film Howl's moving castle thanks to a lovely TSR person I had round at mine and I thought it was pretty good despite not really liking a lot of anime stuff.

    Just wanted to know if you guys knew any other films that are similar to it in regards to art style and just the general feel of it.

    Thanks <3
    Howl's moving castle is a Studio Ghibli film, most of those are very well regarded and accessible to those that aren't really into anime. Search for "Studio Ghibli" and pick one you haven't seen yet.

    I recommend:

    Spirited Away
    Kiki's Delivery Service
    Porco Rosso
    Laputa: Castle in the Sky
    Princess Mononoke

    But almost all of them are excellent.

    Edit: I see someone has basically made this reply already T___T

    Watching Shiki atm and I'm on episode 8. At first I kinda liked it but now , I don't know it feels like kinda a chore to watch it. I don't know whether to stick with it till the end or go onto berzerk.

    I made the n00b mistake of thinking that Amazon's Kindle store would be the best place to buy manga for a Kindle... nope. The file quality for this particular title (Welcome to Nyan-Cafe) was terrible, and it was in a format that didn't allow panel view. Or even basic zooming. Not the best start. :s:

    Then I found the same ebook on eManga for a fraction of the price, and in amazing quality, high enough to read on the device without zooming (though it's good to know that's now an option should I ever want to do so). Lesson learned. I just hope I'll be able to find manga titles from non-DMP-affiliated companies in half-decent quality, preferably on Amazon itself! :sadnod:

    At least Amazon accepted my request for a refund on low quality grounds, no fuss.

    That's the thing I like about Amazon, if you have even the slightest problem with your purchase they refund/exchange no matter what.

    Yeah, I was impressed with how easy getting a refund was. Just a shame I needed one in the first place. :sadnod: I won't let this one experience put me off buying ebooks there again, but I'll certainly remember to shop around in future. :p:

    Finished the second of my Secret Santa series, Zero no Tsukaima F... generic fantasy plot for about 4 out of 12 episodes (full of holes, and convenient character resurrection), while the rest was repetitive boob jokes and harem hijinks that weren't even funny. I don't know whether the 4th series was just particularly bad, or whether it's all down to me becoming more critical over time (I must have watched the third series in 2008/09, and my taste in anime has certainly changed since then). Once again I feel I should apologise to 'Santa' for my scathing reviews so far, but this and Kill Me Baby were both series I chose to skip watching back when they aired, and it seems my instincts were right. :o:

    Beelzebub, though, aired before I got into the habit of sampling the first eps of everything every season. I don't know what to expect, but the synopsis has me interested. :yes: Can't promise I'll finish this as quickly as the other two due to its length, but I'll aim to have it watched before the New Year.

    Just watched 'The Garden Of Words' and I'm surprised to say I really liked it! The story was just awesome, loved the music too.

    Started experimenting with scanlations on the Kindle, and quickly learned that the Kindle Comic Converter is my friend. It's ridiculously easy to use, and the resulting files look great! :zomg:

    I did stop and wonder for a moment whether free, portable scanlations would result in me spending less on licensed manga, but somehow I doubt it. Nothing could stop me buying manga. :nah: I'll mostly use it for unlicensed series, and also stuff that I started reading with Tokyopop, only to have to drop them part way through when the company went bust. :sigh:

    I've not seen Sky Girls, but found Upotte!! quite entertaining. :yes: Ended a bit abruptly, though.

    :beard:Gonna take a look at that myself. Ive been using two programs to convert manga which are quite time consuming and long winded.

    Okay, so how many of IMDB's Top 50 anime series have people seen? I scored 36. :proud: Though I left out Hunter x Hunter on the assumption they were referring to the first adaptation. And a few of the others have been kicking around on my want to watch list for ages. City Hunter surprised me though, can't say I've heard much about that before. :beard:

    I've watched 16 but to be honest, some of these need to be a lot higher than they are.
