The crackdown is spreading, and soon there will be no more online manga as we know it.

I hope I won't have to resort to scurrying around search sites for Manga Sites that haven't been shut down.

I can't afford all the manga I read online. I can't fathom being stopped at a random point and never reading again either.

He couldn't take on Raditz without Kakarot's help, yet he can destroy the mother fucking moon with a single blast.

One bad mutha.

The moon didn't even fight back so it wan't much of a fight, besides didn't Freiza kill an entire Saiyan army with a ball on his finger?

Well that's actually in a movie...

But sorry, damn I need to discontinue my assumptions

I mean, to be honest I didn't really spoil anything major unless you plan to watch the Bardock Movie

Because the thing I mentioned is sort of offhandedly mentioned in the actual series to make Freiza more intimidating.

I always thought Freiza was one of the cooler villains of the series.

How does the moon keep coming back again? I remember Master Roshi destroying it in Dragonball when he fought Goku at the martial arts tournament, then it somehow came back to be destroyed by Piccolo in DBZ, and then it came back again in time for Gohan to turn into a giant monkey in Tree of Might. And the course of nature is never screwed up by the moon being gone.

Well, that sounds pretty bad. I was kinda interested in checking out this show.

The whole anime and manga industry wouldn't have to worry about piracy if they would just sell their products at a reasonable price. It's not all that bad for manga, but anime is insanely expensive.

Yeah, and they should stick to the original better and not obscure/alter all the artwork (*cough*Viz*cough*).

That, and only select few titles get importes... in America. Imagine in other countries. One commentator suggested importing stuff on your own and learning Japanese... in the same breath as accusing piracy advvocated from being distanced from reality. Because, you know, learning Japanese is a walk in a ballpark and everyone has money to order friggin comicbooks from a foreign country, especially without knowing what the contents are beforehand.

Unfortunately, the same people who denounce piracy also want to make said import patterns illegal in order to "protect domestic industry." Why the fuck should we pad their asses when they betray our trust?

I finally ended up buying Evangelion 1.11 on Bluray today, and I just finished watching it about thirty minutes ago. Overall, I think it was a pretty solid movie, I'm definatly looking forward to watching the other three movies when they come out. I've never seen the original anime, so I can't really make any comparison between the original series and the movies.

I think we forgot about the troll spray, because with a name like that, it's no wonder nobody talks to you, but I digress.

Back on track, I finally got the new Fist of the North Star box set, along with a couple Soul Eater DVDs as well. Now I just need the last couple of DVDs of CG R2, and my collection is complete.
"To the Anime Store!"


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

I think Eva 2.22 already came out somewhere. It's really an amazing movie, because, get this, Shinji actually does something badass.

Last time i checked there was nothing available for English viewers yet. Being a giant Evangelion fan ( aka pussy :3 ) I was disappointed by the lack of subtitles available for 2.2.

It's already been released in Japan, but it's not out in North America yet. I would rather just wait for it to come out here, since I actually enjoy the English voices. Also, wouldn't importing it be useless since Bluray movies are region-coded?

Care to explain what that is? If it is something to do with lolicon or something like that, then it would be illegal, but I'm simply curious to know what it is.

I wonder who would actually be willing to enforce it though. I know it's illegal to have that in Canada, but I honestly can't see any officer going out of their way to arrest you for having it. Better yet, how exactly would one get caught with it in the first place? As long as you didn't tell anyone about it, I don't see how you could ever get caught.

I checked out this Soul Eater that people were talking about.

I quite like the style, and the action's quite good.

But god. The humour is awful. Most of the dialogue in the first episode is about breasts and nosebleeds. And most of the character interactions involve one hitting another.

At least in the United States, they'd catch you the same way they caught Christopher Handley: through the mail system. If you bought it at a convention or something and it managed to slip under the radar there, the only way I can think of they can catch you with it would be either a bystander snitches on you or the cops find it while searching your house on another warrant (extreme example, I know, but it's realistic).

To be fair, Christopher Handley pussed out and plead guilty instead of going through an expensive trial he really couldn't afford.

FUCK YES BARRAGAN

I've been waiting to say that all week

Anyway, I was watching Avatar this week because it was an extras special. It's kind of like Pop Up video but somewhat amusing and not annoying. I was wondering, do you guys consider Avatar anime? I think so. It has the art style, the themes, the humor, and the action expected of a shonen manga. A lot of people say that because it isn't explicitly made in Japan that it isn't.

I gotta say though I love watching this show again. I loved it the first time through but the extras are nice ways of adding to the experience. It has a good sense of humor about and because it's on Nick I don't have to stomach bad perverted jokes and fanservice.
