What's with the dirty furry burglars?

They're not furries; they're Tonzra and Boyacky of the Dorombo Gang (à la Yatterman).
They're both semi-playable in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom (they appear during most of Doronjo's attacks).

Onemanga is a great database of Manga to read on the internet and updates come every week

Yeah, I'm familiar with it. Wonderful site, except it often doesn't have all the uploaded chapters for the Hokuto No Ken manga or Sailor Moon for exampe.

I've read the WSJ, FMA, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure (at least I am reading it currently), Tsubasa Resevoir Chronicles, Xxxholic, Eyeshield 21, Claymore, etc. It's a great resource but sometimes stuff gets pulled, like Gantz :(.

Why did Gantz get pulled? Unpopular, censorship?

It's really good, sometimes the arcs are a little long winded but they're all good so it doesn't really bother me much.

Long arcs don't bother me, I'm a sailor moon, dbz, HnK fan :P

The characters are good and the author likes to go deep into the mind of the characters during battles, especially in the current arc. It's a great characterization tool, to see what a character thinks in battle.

Sounds like the proper approaches I'd like in a series. Thanks for the recommendation.

Apparently Dark Horse Comics own US distribution rights to Gantz and they pulled EVERYTHING that they had on Onemanga.

Oh yeah, I remember... They pulled series like Akira, Berserk and Hellsing because of that.

It's inconvenient because the Dark Horse mangas are usually difficult to find in normal book retail outlets and they're also very expensive.

Yup.
I've been watching the 2008 series, and so far it's epic enough; I really need to watch the 1977 series (and maybe Time Bokan later so I'll get all the references).

Just watched the first episode of Desert Punk.

I didn't like it at all.

It was so full of that awful generic anime humour that I hate. Where it's centred around people suddenly screaming, pervy remarks about the female form alongside numerous 'fanservice' shots (though, in most cases I tend to find them a disservice), and over-explaining every bloody joke.

When will anime comedy writers learn that people can usually understand a joke the first time it is said? They do not need a person explaining exactly why what the last person said is funny.

There was one joke in the show that I found kinda funny, where one guy went into an outrage regarding a comment made about his mother. However, that joke was repeated somewhere around 10 times during the show. That's laziness.

I wasn't largely impressed by the action scenes either, but they were okay. Perhaps it's just not my sort of anime.

I'll give it one more episode.

Man, the Record of Lodoss Wars OVA is a beautiful re imagination of the original manga, but boy has it taken some good liberties and some bad ones...

They really abridged the plot and sort of re-arranged alot of the original elements which drove the story so well in the manga. Yet what's interesting, is that it also features completely original material and new plot elements not included in the manga or the sequel series.

None the less, A whimsically beautiful and engaging fantasy adaptation, I recommend it to anyone intrigued by the fantasy genre, or pretty ova series.

Watched the second episode of Desert Punk. In English this time.

It was a lot better.

The voice acting wasn't as over the top in English, there was a distinct lack of shots of women's body parts, and it was actually funny at points.

That episode has rekindled my interest in the series.

Was it edited in any format or did the episode stray from the particular dissatisfying qualities you witnessed in the previous episode?

Sup guys. I haven't been on here in a while.

I loved the first episode of heroman. It's exactly what I expected it to be off of the cover. Well, besides the main's gender. Srsly, I don't see the point in drawing him like such a girl. Currently waiting on arakawa under the bridge subs. YERRRRP

You better, you dang sexy bastard fish you...

It may feel grueling to have to watch all 200 episodes over the span of 5 seasons (and the 3 movies), but man it's a major classic and probably one the most important series I've ever watched. It's definitely worth it in my mind, you just have to pace yourself.

It is a bit flawed, in all honesty, but I still consider it to be rather classic to my personal self.

For example,unless you're familiar with the majority of the plot from the manga, the anime neglects to elaborate on certain key plot points. It was rather disorganized in that way, I find.

You mean Sailor Moon or Pichi Pichi Pitch?
Both are good mahou shoujo series; Sailor Moon pretty much set the standard.
Pichi Pichi Pitch was good overall, but the voices were lacklustre and the soundtrack was cheaply produced; they could've used real bass guitars, strings and horns, but they skimped out and used synths for most everything. (Plus they took a few liberties and diverted away from the manga in several places, probably so it could be aired in the time slot it was shown in.)

And what's up with 4kids as mentioned in your other post?

There was a rumor floating around for a while that 4Kids was planning to buy the rights to Negima and redub it. (I heard this from a fellow Newgrounder several years ago; so far it's seemed bogus.)

I should give it a lookover, although, oftena good OST either makes or breaks the memorableness of a series for me. Does that mean the manga was the better incarnation?

If they're planning to edit it, dumb it down for 4kidsTv... that's going to either be really funny and/ or really stupid. Especially since it's supposed to be a sexual harem series. :P

If Negima is the same thing that I'm thinking of, that's rather bizarre.

I remember reading a manga volume of it. In one chapter, some girls were fighting over who 'got' the main character as a room mate or something, I don't know. And they were all in the changing rooms, so they decided "hey, let's have a breast size contest". And then they all compared breast sizes.

Then the main character made the main girls breasts grow and she won the competition.

That sort of thing may be the standard in Japanese kids comics, but I wouldn't expect to see it in anything kids orientated in America.

Maybe the cartoon is different. I don't know.

---

I just watched Ponyo. I thought it was great.

Very happiness inducing. Much like My Neighbour Totoro. Not quite as good as that, but still great.

The art was breathtaking, as is the usual for Miyazaki films. The English voice actors were great (as I watched it in English). Everything was good.

Not at all disappointing like that Howl's Moving Castle.
