Lol, big 3 arguments.

Watching high school of the dead, Shiki, sengoku basara season 2, and occult academy this season. Anything else to watch?

Rainbow - Nisha rokubo no shichinin. There aren't many contemporary animes that interest me, but this is one of the best shows ever, let alone the year 2010.

Well, it's official

The manga companies are cracking down on manga sites like Onemanga, which I have been a patron of for a few years. While Onemanga is doing this of their own will in compliance with the companies it's only a matter of time before more sites shut down.

I can't afford manga, I'm confident I'll always find it somewhere, but the quality will only decrease as it becomes harder and harder to find quality scans.

I'm a little worried

And it took you THIS LONG to figure that out?
I warned you about this months ago.

I can't afford manga either, but as I said before, I don't even trust scanlators anymore. I will only read manga raw now.

There's no way I'll even try to learn Japanese, there are a number of good scantalating groups out there like SleepyFans.

Not to mention that if these sites get shut down it'll be months before the US releases catch up

But you watch Bleach.

And there's lots of good kid's shows that "adults" can enjoy.

They do bleed in One Piece.

I don't know how they do the anime but there's plenty of blood in the manga. I don't know why blood and cussing make something enjoyable over plot development and characters.

I guess you would think Rambo is better than Toy Story too.

Also when does One Piece EVER have rap music in it or any allusions to rap music in it?

Frankly, I can't stand One Piece the anime, the manga was passable for me, but the anime has so much god damn filler, it made me sick. I know that the show is more targeted to kids more than the other 2 Shonen Jump cash cows, {you know what they are} but I viewed it as generally overhyped and lacking my expectations. 4kids also doing a shitty job editing and dubbing the show doesn't help either, and yes I am well aware that Funimation has already got their hands on OP, but regardless of that, I don't like One Piece.

Then again, I'm not big on modern SJ anime, {except for D-Gray and Eyeshield 21}, too many shows with pointless fillers that I don't give a shit about.

Now that my little rant is over, I'll now sit back, crack open a brew or two, and rewatch FMA: Brotherhood, thank you very much.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

I guess I'm just a glutton for violence.

I don't think that's the issue. I think it's coming off that you refuse to watch anything that doesn't have bloody action scenes and cussing n par with a 13 year old girl of Facebook.

I don't think that's necessarily the case, but still, kiddy doesn't equal bad.

Just look at how people reacted to Toy Story 3.

I think it's close minded to dismiss anything without at least giving it a try.

And the stuff I do watch other than shonen are usually movies like Grave of Fireflies or Totoro

Or was it the other way round? Annyway, lol, is that Korn kid still here? I thought if the consensus among members is that someone doesn't fit the club, they shouldn't post. Oh well.

Durarara has been pretty good so far. It hasn't been as gripping as Baccano! but it's not a bad show.

Well, I already mentioned how much I love Darker Than Black, so you could always give that a try. I also enjoyed Evangelion 1.11, which was one of the best looking Blu-ray movies I've watched. Also, High School of the Dead seems to be pretty decent so far, but there are only three episodes out right now.

Oh yeah, Mendou. Are you getting Blazblue: Continuum Shift? I already preordered my copy, but I have nobody to play online with. I know you bought the first one, so I figured you would get the new one too.

If they don't reach the mall in the anime I will be pissed. I cried reading that part in the manga, it deserves to be in the anime.

Now back to anime at long last.

What's your favorite fight scene in anime? Mine is the one between the Demon God and the Death God in Soul Eater. And not because of the actual fight, just the dialogue is perfect.

Yeah, that was a pretty cool fight. I was baked when I watched it though, so it was 10x more epic than it probably was.

I hated soul eater. A decent premise with horrible execution. If I was doing the whole shounen magic weapon academy thing I'd do it right. People would fucking advance.

Also, death the kid is one of the worst characters I've ever seen. His guns were pretty cool though.

My favorite fight would have to be the final one in Blassreiter, in which Joseph's body gets possessed by deceased blassreiters after getting beaten unconscious. The cool part of the possessions was that both of them had access to their weapons from back when they were still alive. All this while a dogfight involving a nuke-carrying vic viper-ish thing was going on in the atmosphere.
