This is like the blandest kind of over-rehearsed, nonsensical vitriol.

SO YEAH IDOLM@STER ENDED and it was a pretty decent finale. More of a light-hearted period at the end of the rather maudlin sentence that's been the back end of the series rather than a proper, defintive conclusion, but it's satisfactory and had enough cool dancing and heartstring-tugging to not feel like a cop out.

I am legitimately surprised at how this show ended up playing out. The first episode was some weird shit, and I had no idea how to read the direction the series was gonna take, then it was a decent slice of life for like 12 episodes and then it slowly evolved into something surprisingly tragic and cerebral. Atsushi Nishigori really is one of the best writer/director types out there these days (as if PSG didn't prove that enough already) and I cannot wait to see what he does next.

I'd be pretty stoked to own that. Then again, I'd be twice as stoked to get a Blu-Ray.

Anyway, you guys need to help me think of a good Manga I should buy off of Amazon or whateverthefuck. I was thinking of buying a few K-On! paperbacks but I'm not so sure because I've already seen the entire series and already read Part 1 on my tablet. But still, I'd like to find a good Manga but I don't even know where to begin. Throw me recommendations, dickheads.

And lastly, been watchin' Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai, and Ben-To. Both of which are pretty fucking grand.

well what kinda manga do you want to read?

My two first recommendations you should read regardless of what you wanted.
Hoshi no Samidare (Lucifer & Biscuit Hammer) is an instant recommendation of mine, simply it is to the mahou genre (specifically, a bunch of kids saving the world with magic and talking animal friends) what gurren lagann is to the mecha genre. Never takes itself seriously, always good fun, some awesome fight scenes and shit, etc etc.
Also great is Watashitachi no Shiawase na Jikan, a short 8 chapter manga about an attempted suicide pianist and a death-row inmate. It's pretty short but absolutely beautiful and heartwrenching.

Then some other greats: Great Teacher Onizuka (hilarious black comedy), Welcome to the NHK (black comedy, but much more emphasis on the black than GTO. Very dark and disturbing, much more so than the anime), 20th Century Boys and Monster (both psychological drama/mystery sorta stuff), Pluto (same as above but also scifi about robots n stuff). legend of the strongest man kurosawa is another black comedy, it takes a couple of volumes to get going but the last half of it is incredibly gripping and outstanding.

idk what else... eden it's an endless world if you like to read stuff where EVERYONE DIES, jiraishin if you want the most inappropriate ending to a manga ever, sanctuary if you want a political/yakuza based drama, planetes for more sci-fi (although I preferred the anime myself, probs because i watched that first)

I don't understand what would be so different having a high def version of something that's animated. I've never seen high def, though. Sure, live action stuff is better in high def, but how does it make a difference for animated stuff?

I wish I had a high definition TV and a PS3 to play blu ray. The first thing I'd get is Planet Earth.

It's makes a much bigger differance than you would expect. Colours come in a lot more vibrant and natural, lines appear sharper and backgrounds and textures appear to have a lot more detail. The other big thing is sound quality, which is much better, especially when listened to on a home theater system.

The thing is though, it needs to actually be made in high definition. Upscaled video does look significantly better, but it's not the same as watching something in real HD.

I think there's a HUGE difference to me. I can't stand watching anime/cartoons when it's all pixelated and sht. If I didn't have a HDTV it wouldn't matter. And nawman don't get a PS3 for watching BluRay get a computer that has HDMI or a TV that has VGA and hook your computer in. Buying discs is for suckers.

And since I'll still have a bit of money left, I was thinking of buying Angel Beats: Heaven's Door manga. Have any of you guys read it? Is it any good?

So, clearly Fusion Reborn takes place after the Buu saga, but I don't recall Goku dying after that. Did he die after that? Also, Goku has to explain the fusion thing to Vegeta as if they'd never fused before. Can anyone explain this?

Confusion over the death of Goku is like being confused about the death of Jesus Christ. He was resurrected, with little to no explaination otherwise.

How about also that the dragon ball z movies are shitty and they have no place in the continuity nor do they even attempt to do so.

It shocks me to say that I might start posting in here from now on. Or perhaps not. We'll see. However, I have for the first time decided to start watching anime. I used to have an unfounded negative opinion of it until Film4 started showing some anime movies in the afternoon and they completely changed my opinion of the whole thing.

I wanted to start watching a series, so I've gone with Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. I just finished watching the first episode and although it's still early days, I can see myself getting quite into this. Anime in general I mean, not just Fullmetal Alchemist. Never thought I'd say that.

Anyway, hi.
