    I actually watched some fansubs yesterday ^_^ La Corda D'Oro Primo Passo episode 3. Liking the story very much and having fun trying to predict the character roles within the story! Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge episodes 6 & 7, which is still following the manga pretty closely and I'm...

    It's horrid! The animation is best left undescribed, as I know a lot of people seem to like it, but my 3 year olds scribbles are more artistic :lol: The storyline doesn't hold water (episode 3 had more contradictions that a 10 year olds school debate). It's a love it or hate it anime and I...

    Yeah! but it prevents any spoilers! I must admit I liked Brand New World almost as much as We Are! and it was a shame it only lasted a few episodes. Although I rather liked the strange seiyuu version of We Are! that was used for the recap episodes (280-283) ^__^ *** I started on the 2nd...

    The new intro wasn't that bad - I quite like Tackey & Tsubasa :D I would have prefered a little more continuation of the storyline, as there was more than 10 minutes of recap, 3 minutes of theme tunes, leaving not an awful lot of time for the actual story - what Franky did was pretty cool...

    Finished watching Betterman last night. It's a pretty decent anime overall, although the subject matter ended up being a little weird at the end. Also watched the 4th One Piece movie - major WOW! factor stuff ^__^

    Thanks to Necromancer I was able to watch the predecessor of One Piece OVA and the 1st movie yesterday. The OVA was bloody awful - never seen Zoro look so small and old before - didn't like the seiyuu and it was too rushed. The 1st movie was great, but more like a 2 episode special than a movie...

    It gets a lot more intense as the storyline goes on and some of the events are even a little gruesome! It's one of my favourite shounen fight anime of all time, along with One Piece and Hunter x Hunter ^__^ I don't recommend you bother with the 1st movie, as it's more like an extra episode, but...

    US Thinpacks Question

    I'd say go with Otaku UK as well. They don't charge for P&P, so if you double check the cost of UP1's DVDs, add the P&P they charge, then decide which is the cheaper option. It's not always best to actually import from the USA incase of customs charges, as they can ruin the savings you might...

    Seven Seas to create yuri (lesbian) manga label in US

    I's not just yuri, it's a lot of anime (I Me My Strawberry Eggs, Ichigo 100% etc). I think it's something to do with strawberries not being such a common fruit in Japan and they're looked upon as being a delicacy (like a musk melon being a symbol of love - they cost something like 10,000 yen!)...

    Nadesico. The ending?

    I think I've watched it dubbed 3 times and the rest was subbed! The dub is actually pretty good, although Ruri doesn't sound so good saying "Idiots" instead of "Baka", but overall the dub is definitely worth watching if you have that option as well!

    Nadesico. The ending?

    I've watched Nadesico around 8/9 times now and the most recent watch (about a month ago) I felt the most satisfied with the ending! There are a few issues left unresolved, but it's nothing major if you think about it. The movie resolves nothing, but it does add a very dark element to Akito...

    Fantastic Children

    I usually watch a dub if I saw the fansub - makes a change! It's not THAT bad :lol:

    Excel saga!

    Excel Saga is on my discard pile - I hated it! It took me 3 days to gather enough gusto to watch the final DVD; I hated it that much :? The only saving grace was Menchi and Watanabe and his Power Rangers. I'm still not sure even now why I watched it....no wait....it cost me money, that's why :lol:

    Fantastic Children

    I started watching it on fansub and now I'm buying the R1 DVD releases (up to volume 3 so far) and I really like the Ghibli-esque look of the characters and the slightly more serene feel of the storyline. I have yet to see the ending, so I don't know how it pans out later on in the series, but...

    It's question time again folks. :)

    .....and you're better off staying that way! The biggest mistake I made in my anime viewing was watching Samurai X: Reflection. Kenshin's whole character was changed and turned into something unrecognisable - nasty!

    It's question time again folks. :)

    I already mentioned Otaku's payment options!! The good thing about them is you can pre-order stuff and unlike UP1, you don't have to pay for it til it comes into stock ^__^

    It's question time again folks. :)

    You have been warned :wink: It is a total 180 from the TV series. Everyone has a different personality, but especially Akito and Yurika. You really may not like what has been done to them and like me, may even regret having watched it! It's a bit like the difference between Rurouni Kenshin...

    Shounen action anime?

    Kenshin isn't something I class as a typical shounen action anime, which is why it isn't on my list of what I've seen already!
