    Baccano - 1 Wow, that was really rather interesting. I'm intrigued enough with the premise to carry on with it. There were rather a lot of characters to take on board though so hopefully things will become more apparent in the next episode. Also: You can't beat a bit of gore!

    dont you just hate it when.........

    * Excessive flashbacks - I'm thinking exclusively of Naruto Shippuden, really. They're far too long and frequent and I am impatient. Get to the fighting! * Fillers - Again, I'm referring solely to Naruto Shippuden. I understand why they exist but man, they're generally hideous. The art...

    Paradise Kiss - 9 - 12 And... it's over. What will fill the void now? :( I really enjoyed the series - the ending brought a slight lump to my throat! The short '10 Years Later' scene seemed a little rushed and perhaps unnecessary but it was cute nonetheless. I think Ai Yazawa made a good...

    I recommend to stick with it! Wolf's Rain is one of my favourite anime series. It's certainly a tear-jerker in places but I love the whole ethereal, dream-like quality of it. Paradise Kiss - 8 Yukari: so cool. George: ... a bit of an ass, but rather lovely. Miwako: so cute. I love these...

    Oh, that's really sad. We can only wait and hope, I suppose! Paradise Kiss: 3 - 7 I'm going to be sad when I finish this too! It's a shame it's only 12 episodes long. Yazawa Ai creates amazing characters. I'm a tiny bit in love with the opening theme as well, haha.

    Thank you for linking me to that, R! I very much enjoyed reading the discussion. I was really touched by NANA, I believe it is a superb anime. The visuals are just beautiful and I think the characters are fantastic. They all succeeded in capturing my interest, which is very rare for... well, any...

    Well, I stayed up until 1am last night watching the final episodes of NANA... I must admit, I shed a couple of tears! I suppose it was Ai Yazawa's intention but Hachi became a less and less likeable character as the series went on; her indecisiveness and capability or hurting those around her...

    The "Recommend Me A New Anime/Manga" Thread

    Thanks for the list! I watched the first few episodes of both Trigun and Samurai Champloo many years ago but couldn't get into it. I may think differently now though. I'll keep all of those in mind, thank you! Oh, let me know what you think of it! I absolutely adore it, I can't wait to see how...

    I thought this thread may be useful to anybody who wants something new to read or watch but doesn't know where to turn. With so many anime fans in one place, there will always be somebody who can recommend you a new series! I'll start it off. I'm almost at the end of NANA and am completely...

    NANA: 31-36 Jesus, this series has taken a severely depressing turn LOL. I still love it but man, I'm hating Hachi more and more with each episode. What a wishy-washy, indecisive cowbag she can be. I'm still hopelessly hoping that things will turn out sort of okay but I can't see that they...
