Has anyone heard of the anime, Innocent Venus? I just discovered it on Anime Network on Demand and I think it kicks ass.

Hooray, I completed Ouran High School Host Club, which I can only some up in one cheesy foreign buzzword: MOEE. Seriously, fucking overkilled the cute in the anime, and I became a total fan girl because of it. The last episode was jusst so, so damn cute. In short, amazing serious, must watch it over again soon.

Excellent....

Both manga series are excellent and the OVAs are very much needed on your behalf.

Herdcoer.

I still have a fuckton of DBZ and Gundam stuff on VHS.

Hell, I even purchased a SECOND copy of Endless Waltz (the edited OVA version, I already had the uncut movie edition) just for the lulz.

Not to mention it should be easy as hell to get the manga since theres like only 4 volumes for both series and shouldn't take long to collect.

Yup, took me a few months, and that's because I had about 10 other series on the go at the same time.

You could easily snag it all within a matter of weeks, or if you've got the resources and can find it at a local shop or for cheap online, in one day.

Children always believed the craziest things.

Of course when you bring those beliefs on, that's when the problems start.

I used to enjoy Pokemon when I was younger, but I stopped watching after they left Kanto and went onto... What was it? The orange islands or something?

I think either that, or possibly Sailor Moon was the first anime I ever saw, but I never watched Sailor Moon as a regular activity, more like 'when it was on'.

But I'm curious, what's your definition of anime?

It's really hard to define anime, or at least I think it is. But really, when I got to thinking about it, PokeMon just felt like it became too cartoony. Something to rival shows like Dexter's Lab or Johnny Bravo on Cartoon Network. But, you could argue that the show has all the elements of man other anime shows, so I guess it could go either way.

Actually, it really couldn't.

Anime is defined as either: A cartoon (using the literal definition), or a Japanese cartoon (using the more common definition).

Pokemon is both of those.

Anime are cartoons, it's not as if it should be a separate group which is unable to rival other American shows, nor does it have to abide by a set of rules for it to be classified under its own label.

I suppose you're right. It's hard to categorize a cartoon, American or otherwise, as anything, so I guess I was wrong.

Yup, I believe it was the Orange Islands.

Pokemon was actually a decent series for the first season or so, but dropped off drastically as it went on.

I think either that, or possibly Sailor Moon was the first anime I ever saw, but I never watched Sailor Moon as a regular activity, more like 'when it was on'.

I watched Sailor Moon religiously, and if it was still on TV, I'd likely start watching it again.

I'd go out and buy it from one of the local shops, but the clerk would look at me like I'm sone kind of deranged loony. Oh well, there's always online shopping....

For the record, Netflix is GOD ON A STICK IN A SANDWICH MADE OF EQUAL PARTS AWESOME AND WIN.

I've got Blood: the Last Vampire at the bottom of my movie queue.
Know what's above it?

The Hellsing series.
Hellsing Ultimate.
And End of Evangelion. (maybe I just wanna see Shinji GROW A FUCKING PAIR, I dunno)

I wish that I could turn back time, and make a better ending to an overrated anime. This flash sums up how I feel about the movie.

Eva had some good things going for it, mechs, some characters, setting, plot, etc...

Started sucking hard towards the end and then LOL GAINAX ENDING. I've never bothered to see the EoE, no plans anytime soon.

---

Darker than BLACK along with Potemayo, TTGL, Zeta Gundam and soon to be future series are keeping me entertained. That along with /a/,/m/ & /v/... /w/ of course too. 4ch might have some mighty big faggots on it but the information and accessibility to new shows and what not are quite handy.

I'll try and do that picture thing of my room soon this week. Gonna be 21 on the 8th so I plan on staying home and getting drunk.

Possibly drunken Kisuke and his Gundams???

I agree that Netflix is a very useful service, but it's not perfect; They apparently don't have the first disk of Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team, Slayers Try, Orphen or the first volume (5-disc set) of GTO. My Saved list is at least 10% of my queue. The funny thing is, Blockbuster Total Access seems to have no problem supplying the very titles missing from Netflix's library (but they don't have full collections of series like Urusei Yatsura or Ranma 1/2).

At the same time, the forced ironic contrast of the lyrics and melody made the movie feel more pretentious and stupid. Even more so because you can tell they were aiming for complete seriousness.

Good, since EoE is a travesty, worse than the last chunk of the TV series.

That song is actually in the movie? Goddammit. Also, ZA WARUDO. WRYYYYYYYYYYYYYY.

Since we're on the topic of horrid anime (Though EVA was decent before the fanboys ruined it, and had a terrible ending. The Manga is still great).

MINOR SPOILERS IF YOU WATCH HORRID ANIME!
I just watched 2 more episodes of Elfen Shit. prior to that, I've only seen one. Now, This series is painfully predictable, and basically rips off other anime because the bastard who created it has seen too much anime, and read too much manga. Remember what the great Osamu Tezuka said "If you want to write a new manga, don't bother reading another manga." Ofcourse, since the person who created Elfen Shit worked at Bandai, he wouldn't have known this. It's such a predictible shitfest, that when you asume Lucy is going to kill a dog, she doesn't. I THOUGHT SHE WAS A PSYCHOTIC KILLER BITCH, BUT SHE DOESN'T KILL A DOG? The creator of Ichi The Killer must be so pissed right now. It's also painfully boring. The characters are so unimaginative, it's impossible to stay awake sometimes. Jesus, the japanese cast is fucking boring in this. Ugh, they end with a rape joke in episode two, and start off the next episode with that same rape joke. Also, they introduce Nana, who is like Lucy, and has a father-daughter like relationship with the Commander (I forget his name), and will do anything he says (Evagelion rip off), and guess were they keep here in their base (Another EVA rip)? Room number 77. Ai Yazawa should fucking sue, because it's an obvious rip off of her series NANA. Also, Yuka, has a thing for Kouta. Fun fact, she's his cousin. I GUESS THEY AMERICANIZED IT TO BEGIN WITH. Fucking incest, How many doujinshis was this fat fuck former bandai employee reading? God. Kouta is an annoying main character on par with Shinji (EVA), and Raki (Claymore). In short, Lynn Okamoto should've been shot along time ago for making this travesty.
Spoilers of shitty anime end here.

Y'know, I hear it's common to love your cousin in Japan.

Also, as for Eva, it's another thing about characters....if you don't like character development, or pretty odd art, then you won't like it. I'm into psychology, I loved seeing what could happen to people...though I didn't really enjoy the last two episodes until after I saw EoE. EoE served it justice, last two TV episodes were just sad for an original ending....but not bad for something that happened afterwards.

It should have just ended like episode 26 with everybody telling him congratulations or some shit, but there should have been an explanation on what the fuck was going on in between those episodes. You don't start an animation project to run out of money later on. YOU FUCKING FINISH IT. I fear that the same thing will somehow happen to Gurren-Lagann, but I doubt it.

It's not like they have control over losing money all of the time...sure, if they plan to spend more than they have then it's a bad thing, but jeesh I'm sure they had their budget in line for a while until something unexpected happened.
