Good luck finding it for a reasonable price. I checked the Right Stuff and they only have one volume on DVD, and Amazon expects me to actually pay 100 god damned dollars for the box set. So, I guess I'll be downloading it if I can since they must want me to do it.

It turns out I had already done this a while ago and forgot about it. well, cool.

I have that on VHS, and was actually just thinking of re-watching it since I realized I don't remember most of it.

A point I made years ago. They technically did nothing illegal, meanwhile the show tarnished their reputation. But the meme is still fun.

Anyway, still watching Durarara, and the plot is really getting intense now..

What do you fellas think about DeathNote and the morality of Light's actions. I am going back and forth on weather he was right or wrong, but regardless if he is the good or bad guy he is still my favorite character because of his "just a guy" status.

His hair is just like mine. I would say that we look alike with him being a version of myself that is just a tad bit older. Without all the big ego and need to use people.

But it was against criminals. And he saved so many lives. Crime slowed 70% and all wars stopped. Think of how many lives he saved by killing a bunch of evil people and only a handful of good ones.

You have no idea the amount of people that either say my hair or my whole being looks like Justin Bieber. Not really a bad thing considering tons of girls my age find him attractive.

Including people who were not, note, sentenced to death via due process.

Can't be proven.

Crime slowed 70% and all wars stopped.

Yet there were hundreds of names to write in every day, as we can see towards the end. Also, I'm doubtful that would actually work in real life. Death penalty brutalizes the society. Remember the bit when his supporters rushed Near's hideout? He even himself admitted that loyal devotion to Kira doesn't change those people's inherent weakness.

Think of how many lives he saved by killing a bunch of evil people and only a handful of good ones.

First of all, how did he know everyone he killed was truly guilty? People were apparently even snitching anonymously over the net, probably on people they just had grudges against.

Also, at the point where the show ended, Kira's reign had been in place for years, and killed thousands, maybe tens or hundreds of thousands, we never get the actual figures. But since he's not only killing people in prison (because you know, fuck rehabilitation) but also outside, that would soon damage the infrastructure.

What resulted was basically a police state ruled by a murderous, anonymous big brother. People would go crazy paranoid. Everyone has skelletons in the closet, and Kira never actually gives any actual list of things that warrant the death penalty from him. I would be dead terrified, personally. What if he decides people recieving government benedfits need be gotten rid of? Or people who have been critical of law enforcement.

Obviously, this is just overanalyzing what is actually a pretty shallow show. But my view is that mass murder isn't justified, not for the greater good, even, and the idea of it being for the greater good is questionable.

So what? That's no excuse to justify going on a killing spree and terrorizing the world, he was an egotistical monster with a god complex. And those few 'good ones' were police officials just doing their job, you think it was alright to kill them too?

No. I don't think that it was right that he killed those detective and it is obvious that he is quite crazy even from the beginning. Somehow he was still charming.

I actually want to know if Light was the way he was before he got the Death Note or the sudden amount of power he gained made him a bit crazy. From the first episode he seemed a little off especially with him being caught up with being God.

But, when he gets the memories of the Death Note taken away from him he seems like a pretty normal and nice guy. It seems a little odd that his personality changed a good bit when it was taken away.

Would anyone care to explain?

Shinji is full of angst, but he's relatable and very much a human character.

And to all the children, congratulations!

ikr every time I re-watch Evangelion I pick up something new. NGE is the best anime ever.

Light was a master at manipulation, he used people like Misa to stay one step ahead of L and the authorities. He is the kind of guy who would backstab anyone the very second that they were either useless, or going to snitch on him, so to speak.

I actually want to know if Light was the way he was before he got the Death Note or the sudden amount of power he gained made him a bit crazy. From the first episode he seemed a little off especially with him being caught up with being God.
He was unaware of the power of the Death Note until he killed 2 random people simply by writing their names, everyone knows that much. But in his crazed mind, he started to become the excutioner of criminals with the notion of being a having a crime-free world, which in an ironic twist, he was becoming a criminal himself. Talk about being a hypocrite along with having a massive ego.
But, when he gets the memories of the Death Note taken away from him he seems like a pretty normal and nice guy. It seems a little odd that his personality changed a good bit when it was taken away.

Looks can be deceiving, one minute he is nothing more than a smart student, but behind the scenes, he is a cold and calculating bastard with murder in his eyes with an agenda. Once his paranoia steps in, everyone was in Light's proverbial crosshairs, and the death notebook isn't far away from his grasp.

What I'm trying to say is, you can't always judge a book by it's cover, you judge it by the contents in the book.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

Before he got the death note, he was popular at school, had friends and was a generally nice guy. But when he gained the power of "god", this power corrupted him. I'm sure you've heard the saying "power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely".

When the death note and all the memories along with it are taken away, he goes back to his former self, because his god complex is gone. Then when he regains them, he becomes borderline psychopathic once again.

That help?

He did seem like a nice guy and I do think that the Death Notes power got the best of him. But others also came into possession of it and didn't go as batshit crazy as he did. He really enjoyed having the Death Note more than any other person in the series (maybe a tie with Mikami).

He also seemed to have a seething and somewhat unhealthy sense of superiority and hatred for criminals at the beginning. I guess you can't blame him for having a big head. He was handsome, popular, charming, a great athlete, the smartest kid in his country and had loving parents who praised him constantly.

Can you really blame him for viewing most other people as beneath him? And do you think he would have been perfectly normal without the Death Note? Some people seem to think his life was "ruined" by the Death Note.

He actually admits even once he gets the Death Note taken away that Kira's ideals are pretty close to his own.

It has come to my attention that some of our users have been behaving utterly shallow. They are not truly devoted to classic and or decent anime. I am going to come down hard on these fools and make sure they do not ever taint our great kingdom here.

The following individuals are banned indefinitely :

Aigis for liking Moe~

LaForge for not knowing anything decent.

Actually, Vegeta was well evened against Freiza in his first form, and Piccolo was equal in power to his second form. He transformed a third time to gain the upper hand, and he used his final transformation just to sadistically fuck with them.

This.

He could have killed Vegeta with some great effort. Then he had to bump it up a transformation to really gain an edge over Vegeta then Piccolo comes along and they are even once again.

Frieza doesn't like a good fight. He prefers domination.

Definitely, Freiza is one bad mofo.

Even though that arc went on way too long, the final half is well worth it.

I never felt any of the arcs from then onward were quite as good

The action is always sweet but it never feels as 'big' as it did against Freiza

The Cell and Buu sagas are good but I don't think they reach the same level as the Freiza arc

I would explain but I don't want to ruin anything for Laforge

But I do agree that the Frieza saga was really the highlight of the series. But the other sagas are quite good as well. Especially the hotness that is introduced in the Android Arc. <3

Hey I'm catching up little by little. I'm on 87 right now, and I watch about 3 episodes a night. So if you extrapolate the data it will take me...

...a long time to catch up.

There are about 291 episodes in DBZ. It seems like it will take a pretty good while at the pace you are going.

Now DragonBall really was awesome. It may not have had the best fights, but it sure was funny as hell. With Goku going around slapping every one on the dick and poon followed by him showing his balls to everyone.

Not even kidding. Watch the show.
