    Parasyte. It is Excellent. I think it was really good, and even though I couldn't enjoy it as well as I'd have liked to have done because I screwed up the viewing order by taking a huge break during exams, by the time I came to watching the rest of it, I felt it was a bit disjointed and I think the sentimental impact it managed to provoke when I was first watching it wasn't there but by the end it managed to finish it up neatly with some pretty important and meaningful things, I don't know what the popular opinion on it is, and frankly I don't care, but I think it's super cool.
    I heard alot about this anime .Is it any good ?

    It really was, quite rare to see an anime series pull a stunt like that, but it worked out really well in their favour. I think if they're ever making a new season, they'll want to wait until they have sufficient new material to work with (i.e. more manga chapters). Just because it hasn't been announced, doesn't mean it can't happen
    Another question.
    Ive noticed on One piece and some other animes/manga they have this thing called a timeskip,what is that ?

    I finished Assassination Classroom a few days ago and I can't get it out of my head. I simply adore Karma.

    I'm currently watching XxxHolic (Ep3 Dubbed with my sister), SAO2 (Ep15 also Dubbed and with my sister), Tsubasa Chronicle (Ep 30), Tears to Tiara (Ep 12), Dragonball (Ep 6), Fairy Tail (Ep10), One Piece (Ep77), Inuyasha (Ep73) and Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo (Ep 34).

    I aim to finish them all except One Piece (aiming for 250 episodes) and Dragonball (haven't decided how far I'm yet) before the end of summer.

    It is literally what it sounds like - the story jumps forward either a couple of months or a couple of years. Usually it is done when the cast splits off to do individual training and then the story picks up again when they get back together again. It's a good way to shake things up since you can age the characters up, change their designs and give them new abilities - makes for a nice breath of fresh air especially in long running shounen series.

    Had to look up the proper definition, though I know what you meant. (Death Note did it too)

    Wiki: A timeskip is a narrative device that is commonly used in the telling of epics or sagas. It allows the storyteller to quickly age characters or develop events without getting bogged down in irrelevant or uninteresting details. Though time is commonly fast-forwarded in small amounts, timeskips usually refer to periods of several years or decades, wherein a pronounced change can be measured against the same characters, such as a child becoming an adult.

    So basically, it's a way to keep the anime interesting without having to watch a bunch of boring in between. I mentioned Death Note, which jumped because the main protagonist was in control of things while the other protagonists needed to catch up. They also do that sometimes because pre-timeskip, they needed to explain a key part of the story, for example.

    So Izanami is just a weapon with Yin inside, just to iron things out.
    One thing that could prove that Yin is dead is because near the end Yin appears (the one in the white suit) and asks Hei to kill her and it's ok, in the OVA she also says her final goodbye and confesses her feeling for Hei.

    However, in the OVA Izanagi does say that he'll grant Yin's wish which would be to be with Hei and Izanagi did grant July's wish to be with Suou.

    Does that kinda make sense? I mean, the ending was ambiguous in its own right.

    Such a strange ending ,I just want Hei and Yin to be together I guess.This anime feels like it need a season 3 but even if it doesnt get one,I guess I could say this is meant to be a sort of open ending ?

    An ending like that means one of two things:

    Spoiler:
    Show
    A) Season 3 will be considered and might even be released, or B) the director wants you to imagine your own ending of the...ending. I mean, they haven't even explained if the black suited Yin was in fact Inazami or not. Still some holes to fill.

    I beginning to think its B.Not sure whether a season 3 could be as good as the past two seasons,since I can imagine Hei and Yin probably wont be the main characters anymore and not sure there is enough material left for a season 3.
    I think its more likely we might get another OVA saying what happened in the aftermath perhaps ?

    I was given money for my birthday 10 years ago, but there wasn't anything in particular I wanted to spend it on, so I decided to have a look in Waterstones bookshop to see if anything caught my interest. The cover art for the manga series Chobits did just that, I bought one volume out of curiosity, and a whole lot more after reading it and liking it. From there, starting to watch anime as well was a natural progression. :p:

    Woah. It looks like it's been 2 years since it ended its first airing and teased it's second part and yet there's no news of what's to come, if at all anything is to come.

    I don't know why but I always like reading how you got into anime, it's probably the spontaneity that is something I can relate to, just out of nowhere it hits and becomes a part of you.

    I'm inclined to think that way. Maybe an OVA or two might wrap things up.

    Did anyone watch the latest episode of naruto shippuden?

    That eps was pretty good and 8 gates guy uses the night guy which was pretty badass and soo cool.

    But I am kind of disappointed though they could have made guy and madara fight a little longer, have less flashbacks and it would have been better!
