HEY JOSH.

YOU SHOULD READ MONSTER INSTEAD OF WATCHING IT OK.

There is a lot less filler but that is typical with most manga/anime series. I think the anime is 70+ episodes where as the manga is under 20 volumes. Fantastic series that you should give a go be it anime or manga. It's one of those that you'll either enjoy it and get sucked in or dislike it, picking it up years later to try and give it another go.

Like candy corn. No matter how many times I try that garbage it STILL tastes like garbage.

I can recall how long it took me to actually complete the series due to no one compensating for the supply/demand feed down at Waldon Books in the ATL area. Shit took almost a year and a half.

Was wondering if anyone here was attending Animenext this year. (Only 7 days away)
Going to be my second convention, didn't know if anyone would want to meet up assuming some are going.

so has anyone beaten me to this yet?

I honestly think the idea is interesting and am willing to see how it is executed.

the link being to an article on ANN about an anime series based on the CW's supernatural.

I just checked out the first episode of Ouran High School Host Club.

It was adorable, and reasonably funny. I'm not sure how it's going to keep it up, though.

I'm guessing it's supposed to be some sort of parody of shoujo or something? I've only really encountered those tropes in parodies, though, since I don't read or watch shoujo manga.

Awesome, I haven't watched Hnk in a long time, and I didn't particularly cared for the Streamline dub that I watched last time.

Well I started watching it again via streaming (I feel dirty, I'd really prefer watching on a DVD over streaming any day, it's so much better. Then again Otakon is a month away and I want to rewatch it now) and now........... I can't stop going "AAAAATATATATATATATATATATATATA WAAATAAAAAAAA!"

Yeah I so did not see that coming from a mile away, lol. >_>

Nevertheless it's quite fun watching Hokuto no Ken again, I'm enjoying it.

Yeah, it's a fairly good series, but I felt extremely gay for watching it. It's definatly not the kind of show you want to let others know you like.

It's not really my cup of tea, but it was pretty funny and one of the few "harem-esqe" anime that doesn't make me sick with cheesy-ass love triangles and excessive fanservice for the sake of fanservice.

Yeah, but they really fucked up the ending theme song in the dub. I always wondered why they would bother changing it in the first place, since pretty much every other dub leaves the intro and endings the same as they were in the original Japanese version.

Oh well, it's doesn't really matter much to me since I usually skip over them.

I'm comfortable with my sexuality.

I could be watching a video of two guys blowing each other and still not feel gay.

I still don't watch English dubs, since learning Japanese makes me feel like I need to be doing something Japanese related in my day-to-day life.

It's basically a parody of harem shows via a bunch of genre-savvy dudes vying for one chick. Regardless of FABULOUUUSNESS, it's actually pretty funny.

Spoilers for the first episode, but it's about a middle class girl who gets to go to an expensive private school, but by accident gets into debt with a host club (a club where handsome men drink and talk with girls), and is also mistaken for a boy. By the end of the first episode, she's made into a host too, her true gender kept secret by the club.

Hilarity ensues, as you might guess.

It's not spam nor is it a war. It is communication between the two of us. You see as we both shout in caps lock we are beating our chests and yelling wildly, letting out our primal instincts. Similar to how I am communicating with you right now. The reason why I'm not cruise controlling cool with you is because of that and you are not a rival ape.

Go back to your oranges you chimp.

I saw it when I was waiting for Penn & Teller's Bullshit to start, and it was seriously boring. of course it was only one episode but c'mon

Not to mention it looked like the main characters were like, crazy underpowered.
This chick just put up a shield and... I guess couldn't attack while doing it or something, because she just stood there as a monster was trying to squish her.

i was like

Yes, but don't listen to a word that post says.

This club doesn't want anyone who would identify themselves as an 'otaku' or a 'baka', or who would use the word 'baka' to describe any person in their day to day life.

I love our standards in this club. :D

Also Otakon is turning into a sketchy plan for me. Even if I have $170, I still want at least $100 or so to spend on stuff at Otakon. I mean I still got to get a hotel room and I'm pretty sure I won't find a $70 hotel room in Baltimore unless it's the hotel's cellar or something. Oh why did I plan this so late? No matter, I'll think of something, even if it turns out that I have to sleep in my car or something.

In a place like Baltimore that's a bit dangerous, but oh well! I'll just form an alliance with all of the Final Fantasy character cosplayers that appear at almost any convention and offer them a mint copy of FFVII in exchange for being meatshields against all of the wankstas that litter Baltimore's streets. xD

Honestly though I got to think of something because as funny and awesome as that situation would be, I find it highly unlikely to actually happen. But they're hardcore Final Fantasy fans that take in Sephiroth as their jesus, so you never know what could happen... Ah I love a good stereotype joke although I give people who practically live off of stereotypes a dirty look. I'm such a hypocrite. :P

Finished season two of haruhi. Boy, wasn't Endless Eight FUN. Especially, when it was twoo in the morning and I relaized there were still two episodes of it.

Might check out Rainbow next, or maybe third season of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei.

From what I've seen, it's basically feels like a similar rehash to Inyuasha, but without the "WIND SCAR" and other stupid shit like that. Just what Adult swim needs, another dragged out shonen with mystical powers and a 2-bit "guy is a stalker, and a showoff" storyline, I would like for them to get something new, and not just another shonen anime.
