Is there a site that lists HTF Manga? I stumbled on 50 or so books and most of them are titles I haven't heard of at a thrift store.

Watched the first episode of Sword Art Online earlier this morning, seemed pretty good might try and watch some more.


The first episode is the only good episode. They do a good job setting up the world in the first episode and the idea of being inside of an MMO has a lot of potential, but after episode one, Sword Art Online turns into a pile of shit.

Oh really? Shame looked quite decent. I might check out a few more just to see how bag it gets.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

Nope, the plan to release them together was abandoned about a year ago. They announced in early January of this year that the 4th and final movie was coming out it 2013. But following the release schedule of the first 3 movies and given that 3.0 is just now releasing at the end of this year, I'm not expecting it till 2014 at the earliest.

Next month, roughly the first 6 1/2 minutes of the movie are going to be shown on TV in Japan after an airing of 2.0: http://www.animenews...-before-opening

Finished watching some series:

Gunslinger Girl S2 is very good. The first time I watched S1 a few years ago I didn't care much for it, but I liked it a lot this time around. I probably wasn't into slow stories back then. It was interesting how the art style changes between S1 and S2. I prefer the art style of the first, but appreciated the colors in the second. I love that Triela and Clause get more attention in S2 <3

Kiddy Grade is ok for the first half of the series, then it goes downhill quick. The story turns to contrived, unexplained crap. I only picked it up because it was cheap and has English dub. I don't think it's even worth a stream unless you only want to watch the first half.

Abenobashi was

-Edit-
Almost forgot, I also watched Nabari no Ou. I enjoyed the story and style. I always looked forward to watching the next episode. It wasn't an amazing series, but still very worth a watch.

Places are saying the last chapter is next week. Although, this week's chapter sort of felt like an ending.

I do feel pretty depressed that it's ending. The last couple arcs have been lacking in quality, but I've followed it for so many years, it feels like losing a friend.

So... tried neon genesis evangelion the other day... and I frickin love it!! Can't believe I skipped over it all these years. I have vol. 7 left of the platinum collection and then the movie.

Can anyone recommend something like it via PM? I heard Macross and spaceship Yamato(sp?) are good. Gantz and Ergo Proxy and Black Butler look interesting too. I'm a fan of Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Paranoia Agent, Gundam Wing and such. Any recommendation is appreciated.

I second that, one piece is the one weekly anime I can count on not to have filler episodes that take months to get through.

Yeah I'm not expecting much from next weeks chapter though. Probably just a little glimpse into the future of all the characters to wrap it all up.

I'd say Reborn was probably one of my top 5 manga to come out of WSJ in the last 10 years. Looking forward to the mangaka's next work.

Yes, I think it was written in response to you. But I thought you were being sarcastic when you originally responded to what I wrote which is why I never thought it was necessary to write anything back.

Its my personal favorite myself, and if you still haven't watched the end then your in for quite a ride. A few anime series to throw out there in the "kid pilots giant robot and crazy shit happens" genre would be Eureka Seven, Code Geass, Gundam 00, Fanfner(havent finished yet), Gurren Lagann, the original Gundam 0079 series, Macross was pretty good as well.

Check out Texnolyze if your into that genre. Ergo Proxy is a good choice too,but the plot does fall apart in the last few episodes.

Ichigo is gonna be able to shoot testanfujg gnsuta arrows and then retract his bow into a shrunken and hurl his body out of this shitty manga.
One piece is the only thing that has stayed decent in manga. I gave up on berserk and its 1 chapter a year shit.

I still like the action in Bleach but I think the story is going further and further downhill. In hindsight, other than Ichigo getting his powers back, the Fullbring Arc was completely useless and unnecessary.

I can't remember exactly but I believe Kubo said that this or the next arc would be the last for Bleach.

I think this will be the last. Its a shame it was so amazing pre and all the way up to soul society arc and then he just stopped trying and I had no idea what the fullbring arc accomplished they could have just sent all of the captains with a sword and stabbed ichigo and saved 3 months of this shitty arc

He said it'll be the last arc, but it'll also be longer than the Arrancar arc. So we're still at least 3-4+ years away.

It is something that becomes painfully noticeable.Would be nice to see people actually stay dead.By the end of the arc whats his face might even show up again saying he had been alive all along.
