Naruto chapter 405 was pretty touching

Not really big into shojo, although I did really enjoy Honey and Clover. Nodame Cantabile was also ok but would've been better served if some of the characters weren't so annoying...the gay guy especially (not because he was gay, I have nothing against that, it's just that the character was too whiny and over the top for my liking). Loved Nodame's character, though.

Well just finished an anime called Utawarerumono and it was very good. Much better than what I was expecting and the Blu-Ray rip was nice. I forgot why I decided to check it out though.

Man, i'm getting tired of When They Cry. 16 eps in. The series wouldn't be too bad if it were a series of chapters involving different characters. I know they introduce a few new ones each time, but when the story hits a climax and the chapter ends, its a hugely unsettling feeling seeing the new chapter start and everyone's all happy & cheery.

Its getting close to the repetitiveness of Hell Girl. But at least WTC actually shows the murder happening.

I loved Honey and Clover. It's one of my favorites. I revisited Lamune to finally watch the ending (which was great, shut up). :oops:

Your avatar is quite appropriate as Rei is on beat. :lol::applause: And Gentleman's Alliance sounds interesting. Is it anything like Ouran High School Host Club?

I just finished Sailor Stars a couple days ago. It felt a little sad seeing the 完 at the end since Sailor Moon was my second anime like a dozen years ago (preceeded by Voltron). I checked eBay for the manga real quick last night, and the complete set was going for $500 and it wasn't even mint. :cry:

I loved Hunter x Hunter TV. Never watched the OAVs because I decided to switch over to the manga. Once I start my assistantship in the fall, I'm going to start start buying the manga again and catch up.

Yeah well that stuff aimed at little girls ( And crossdressing con goers) really shoot up in value after awhile, i'm still shocked at how much CardCaptor Sakura goes for now.

I am in neither of those two categories. CCS doesn't seem to be going for that much (aside for one listing for a "first pressing" with a BIN price for $750). The few singles I see are only going for $15-ish.

Maybe I should try to unload my first pressing DVDs for $600. :roll:

I hadn't watched any anime in 3 years until a couple weeks ago (Fullmetal Alchemist was just finishing up when I moved from Louisiana, that had been my last anime until 2 weeks ago). I started with Code Geass, which was pretty good. Now I'm trying Naruto Shippuuden, on ep 32 and it sucks. NOTHING happens. It's soooo slow. And really predictable. You can see what's going to happen 3 or 4 episodes in advance. I often just scroll through an entire episode in 2-3 minutes, and can understand every single thing that happened.

I need something faster paced... and smarter.

If you like Code Geass, you may want to give Death Note a try. The first 2/3 of the Death Note anime was great, the final 1/3 was awful imho, and I've heard the manga also started to fall apart right around that point. Something happens to a certain major character, and the show just loses its intrigue and suspense.

And for those who enjoyed Hunter X Hunter, *applauds*. One of the most underrated anime series that I have ever seen. I'm happy at least the manga was licensed in the US.

Shippuden anime is really bad IMHO. They slow it down even more (naruto is slow enough in its manga form) so that they dont have to end up doing filler sooner.
Its in filler now I think, not sure because Ive stopped watching.

Code Geass season 2 is airing now.

Monster is about as smart as it gets, if you haven't seen it yet.

I watched Wicked City last night. Not quite as good as Legend of the Crystal Triangle, but it was definitely worth a few laughs.

I'm having trouble finding the live action version of WC. A person having sex with a pinball machine makes it sound like its a must see.

I'm always one for cuteness, but I sold this off after watching the second episode (and they're short episodes, too). I just couldn't take it.
An example of an excellent cute show is Strawberry Marshmallow :D

Well, faster paced would DEFINITELY be Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. And I'd say it's definitely smarter than Shippuuden, mostly in the giant metaphors that are going on in the background.

I got bored with Lagann...I would not call it smarter.

I'd say Code Geass or Death Note are much better choices for "smart" anime.

I was saying it's smarter than Shippuuden. An anime that's five hours of staring at a dog's ass is smarter than Shippuuden.
