    Fate/Stay Night

    Only two episodes in, but I love this show to pieces already. The cast is varied and vibrant, and the hero is decidedly uncliche. I doubt i'm the only one who well in love with Saber before she was even introduced to the show. Despite being an adapation of an adult title, the humour has been...

    "Growing out" of gaming?

    I can remeber this time last year I was tremendously excited about many games; I would play them often, and ended up always buying far more games than I could actually finish. Yet, of late, I find myself less and less into gaming; I do not find them at all as enjoyable as I used to do. Issues of...

    The Final Results

    It's been a long few months, and now, finally, the end has come. *sigh of relief* The three-way final saw three characters who have worked hard and close to snatch the final three spots, and in the end it became one of the closest and most heated week yet. So, without further ado, the...

    The Grand Final

    Mangaminx: So, after weeks of epic duels, thrilling victories and tragic losses we are finally at the grand finale, the battle to end all battles. Its been a long and bloody road, but I shall miss doing it every week *wipes a tear from her cheek* Chomolungma: Calm down dear, it's only the...

    Soul Calibur III

    My excitement is rocketing, as various forum members will tell you, although I fear Neptune2venus/Cassandra is the most excited of all. ;) I can't wait for another batch of sublime duels with such endearing personalities as Cervantes, Nightmare, Raphael and Ivy, although apart from Setsuka...

    So, Spike Speigal is going through to the three-way showdown, but who shall be his opponents? This week, slogging each other for the honour we have the vivicious line-up of the ever-victorious Osaka fighting a slightly less clueless Yomiko Readman. Good luck to both competitors. Remember to...

    Noein

    What can I say? In a season with Blood+, Jigoku Shoujo, Mai-Otome and soon Paradise Kiss subbed, the anime that I've most enjoyed (admittedly, only a single episode) was Noein. It's a truly fantastic opening to what seems like an intelligent series that can only be summed up as epic. Episode...

    Mai-Otome

    Ok, only one episode has aired, but I felt it was rather good. The animation exceeds Hime, and the characters so far have been interesting, especially Shizuzu. I think with the set-up provided, the show could excel in all that its precursor did, and then some. I hope the same level of quality...

    Create the perfect RPG!

    No, this isn't a thread about RPG Maker, although that's certainly a worthy topic. Basically, it's a gathering together of several hollow thread ideas into one. Firstly, do you prefer a classic rpg style world map, or a connecting world of locations? Secondly, do you prefer random...

    Black Cat

    Thanks to an anonymous forum member*, I've recently began to read Black Cat, and it is another truly fantastic manga. The undoubted stars are Train (aka Black Cat) and Sven, who have a partnership as Sweepers - basically bounty hunters. It seems to have slight mob undertones, which suit the...

    Round One, Battle Seven: Naruto vs. Ichigo

    It's the final week of the first round, and I think it's definatly a case of saving the most explosive of the male fights to last. Standing for entry to the second round today we have Kurosaki Ichigo, the strawberry-haired shinigami of Bleach (pictured below with Rukia) facing off for a place in...

    Favourite...Gundam series/OVA

    To continue the trend of top tens, polls and favourite threads, here's a more specialized but perhaps just as fun one. For me: 5) Gundam 0080 OVA; like 08th MS Team it's a different viewpoint on war. 4) Mobile Suit Gundam; it's the original, and introduces that character, you know the...
