"Anime Beginnings"

The anime experience started when I had a younger mind.

Watching Toonami as I got home from school

I seem to have put that memory behind

As I develop into an otaku fool

-

Once an anime has been seen

The next days to come go super slow

Like a throne occupied by an evil queen

In a few days, I'll be over it though

-

Often I feel as if I've see it all

Once in awhile I'll be taken by surprise

I thought the anime world was kind of small

But it appears I have yet to adventure the entire size


"A Tale of Manga"

It started after a crazy tale

The pages went by like a giant sale

Going as fast as a dream that just ended

Everything in these chaps are simply splended

-

It's been a few years and I've read many

Find better ones like a shiny new penny

The manga world has much to give

I hope to read and don't outlive

-

A good action will keep me busy

Fights so big they will make you dizzy

That's not to say I don't like other types

Adventure, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, I have no gripes

-

To this very day I have read few that I hated

Most I thank for having been created

Never regret when they end

Onto the next one, friend


"In Anything Really"

I don't look for a meaning

To me, it's quite demeaing

Watch it for the fun story

And enjoy it in all it's glory

Hey

I Totally agree with your manga recs I have read some of them and rate them quite highly (Especially Air Gear, best manga ever), and funnily enough most of the others are ones that are in my want to read list but just haven't quite got there yet >.<

Anyway awesome page =P

A lot of shit to talk about this week. Galactic Heroes definitely looks like a good watch. Saw a review of it and it sounds very detailed. Hah, a long ass OVA though. I actually didn't know it was possible for an OVA to be that long. And as far as another Bebop, I'm sure we're due for something amazing soon enough. Definitely not an easy feat to live up to though, just about everything has to be perfect, from story to music. Samurai Champloo might be the closest thing to it in my opinion. Not style or genre wise, but quality of anime. Some people complain about the story which I absolutely do ont get. And while we're on the subject of anime only series. Durarara! I'm glad you finally watched it! It definitely was an amazing watch. The way the city was set up with the veriety of characters and the way they developed with eachother. Pretty amazing most definitely. Even Mikado who was pretty much the most meek character out of the story was developed nicely once it was revealed he was basically a genius spreading that message via cell phones. Oh, and Sonohara's flashback. My god, my fucking god. I think that covers it. Definitely a great one. Another good anime is Baccano! Not sure if you've seen it. But if you haven't I highly recommend it for anime.

Hah, Gintama is definitely a spin off of that type of world. Aliens and cowboys, samurai. What have you. And as far as Magi, I honestly don't know what brought the anime up. More than likely ratings, but at the speed they're telling the story it's gonna catch up in no time. Seriously, I'm on chapter 22 while the anime is on episode 7 and It's still ahead of me. Like seriously, it's actually made me decide to not watch it. The manga is good, but an adaption can't be near as good when you cut that much out. There is one series that I can not stop thinking about wanting a proper full length anime adaption of. And that series is Berserk. Fuck, I'm going to refrain from fanboying over it because I'm still not caught up and I know it sucks to hold back spoilers, plus you know how amazing it is. But I just can not stop thinking about how good a WELL DONE adaption of Berserk would be. That actually covers more than the Golden Age arc. Don't get me wrong, loved that arc. But after starting to catch up these past few weeks, there's just so much more to the story. Then again, that's ongoing as well. For finished series, shit there are plenty of those that deserve a good anime adaption. But ratings more than likely call for ongoing series to increase popularity.

Hajaja! I had a feeling you wouldn't have a taste for the last Toriko chapter. Which I definitely understand, I mean literally over half of the chapter spent introducing characters in the blandest way possible. The only reason I didn't mind it all that much is because I enjoy character profiles. Even though I definitely think a proper introduction for all of these characters was wasted. I just know they better be very relevant later or I'll be pretty pissed. Other than that, it should be a good arc. Hah, and the heavy dialogue I'm actually used to from Hunter X Hunter. That series gets ridiculous with it in the manga. The anime isn't so heavy with it. But the manga at one point literally spent basically an entire chapter listing different types of cards that were pertaining to the current arc. Which wouldn't be so bad except for the fact that most of the cards don't mean shit. But yeah, I think I just built up a high tolerance for pointless heavy dialogue. Either way, expecting epic shit when Toriko returns.

I am pretty much the exact opposite with manga and anime right now. Just have absolutely no motive to watch new anime series. I had to stop Btooom! And it was good, but I just can't get myself to watch anime for some reason. Well it's probably because I still have a lot of shit to catch up on. I need to plan for what I want to start after I catch up to all of these ongoing series. Probabaly find a good anime and start some finished manga. On Volume 28 of Berserk. Hah, I said end of December but I'll be done way before that. It's ridiculously easy to burn through these volumes. This shit literally eats away at my time. I'll start reading and look at the clock to realize I need to actually do shit. But Guts. . . Berserker armor. . . it's fucking painful to just look at the state it leaves him in even though he's healing. Ugh, I seriously can't think of one bad thing about the series.

Now, this weeks chapters. OP, gotta start off with it. Fucking interesting chapter. First more CC theatrics, which not everyone likes. But I honestly can't get enough of it. He did Brown Beard dirty. Then onto Luffy being a straight up bad ass. And of course. Doflamingo turns "Sad's" into "Smiles" This whole artificial devil fruit thing, fucking loving it. Seriously, an entire army a zoan type users. I can't even imagine if that were to escalate to say an army of logia type users. But which Yonkou do you think has the army? Im leaning towards either Kaido or Big mam. Also, a while back not sure what chapter. But Doflamingo was talking to an auction house owner I believe. Possibly on Jaya. And the subject about the new era came up. In wich Doflamingo replies " It's the era of smiles!" Once again, Oda and his foreshadowing. Not to mention Law's and Doflamingo's jolly rogers.

Bleach, I thought it was pretty damn funny how they literally put Zangestu in one of those bubbles, yet they leave Kenpachi behind completely. Couldn't Ichigo just carry his damn sword? And they just keep making it more apparent that Byakuya is living. Fuck. The one elvis haired 0 squad member was impressive though. Made Soi Fone look like a little bitch. Plus he's the "healer?" Un expected. Besides that though the other 0 squad member wern't really doing much, the one black member wasn't even shwon. The fuck. Let's just get Ichigo's ass up to the soul king. Oh yeah, and let's find out who the fuck that swordsman is. 6 months it's been already.

Naruto, wasn't the ten tails a demon at the beginning of the series? And then Kishi made it the progenitor of everything on that planet. And he can't really do shit. Okay, I'm jumping the gun, I know it's not complete and of course the bijudama spam attacks looked cool. I'm sure it'll show more off soon. But one question still burns. Why the hell was Madara sitting on his ass last chapter when he apparently wanted to take out Naruto and the rest before the summoning? Eh, whatever. I think Bee is about to get fucked up though.

Yeah about berserk they just should save couple more years if they want to make it look any good or just not don't make it at all thou some parts looked good but some completly horrible shit =.=

Firstly, thanks for the comment! I actually saw a comment on your review from someone else and as it wasn't very pleasant I thought I might take the opportunity to let you know that some people actually agree with you. Even though we have our preferences and favorite genres, I don't get why he hates it. It is irritating from time to time, yes, I felt like punching the pc screen several times but I find it hard to believe that someone would go as far as to hate it. By the way, I didn't reply earlier as I wanted to get to Yukki's change before but after that I just kept watching and I finished the show in a blink of an eye. I liked it very much...! Even though Yuno still kind of pisses me off, the plot just kept getting better and better, managing to win me over. Definitely an enjoyable and worthwhile anime. I feel like watching something similar now... Something with a "high stake game" and with some supernatural/fantasy as well. Any suggestions? :)

Definitely, one of the best parts about Parasyte is the relation between Shinichi and Migi.

Hah, Gintama is definitely comedy for the most part. Actually the anime is much heavier with it. The manga grew on me a little more. But that's pretty much why I read it. I figure it's good to study stories that have heavy comedy for my own writing. Stories with absolutely no comedy are so bland to me. And believe it or not there is a plot in Gintama. It's not really prevalent through most of it, but it comes out at certain points. And that's usually when the story takes a bit of a serious tone. Which I mudt admit, is done very nicely. It's not all the time, but when the story gets heavy, beautiful. It actually reminds me of Oda's style of writing at some points. Where the story will be at a really serious and climactic point, but there's still bits of well placed comedy to make it even more tear jerking. But it's definitely an aquired taste. Plus I just find the world interesting. An Edo samurai period in Japan with invading aliens. Hah, I enjoy shit like that for some reason. And as far as the Magi anime. It looks really cool. But I  watched some reviews on it and noticed that by episode 5 they were already ahead of me while I was on like chapter 12. So they definitely cut a lot out in the anime. I've heard really good things about it, but I'm already invested in the manga. I have a hard time getting myself to watch the anime I'm already watching.You'll like it I think. It gets really dark at parts actually, then Aladin is just fucking enjoyable. He makes me laugh every single chapter.

I will definitely agree with you on the 0 squad needing to look more intense. I enjoy the character designs just because they're different from the usual. But at least a few of them need to look intimidating, or have some scars or some shit. It's weird when they all look goofy. Oh well, they'll be pretty cool in action probably. Toriko has pretty much been set up for a while, so you didn't miss anything crazy. Just this new arc starting. It should definitely be a good arc though. Better than the 4 beasts which was cool, but some parts were kind of weird. I am now reading volumes of Berserk at a time and not even realizing it. Holy shit. I know I bring it up a lot, but it's just ridiculous. I really like the crew that's being formed. I definitely worry for them though. It is Berserk after all. And I mentioned Green Blood before. It's really really good. But do what you planned on doing and wait for it to catch up with the japanese releases. You're going to want to marathon it, and now I regret catching up so fast. You'll find something new to read though, just a matter of actually starting it. Which can defintely be hard at times. I usually just have shit that I want to read planned in advanced.
