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.

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.

THUS SPEAKS THE GREAT LEADER.

Here is a dramatic recreation of what just happened.

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

I seem to recall like two whole episodes taking place over the course of 5 minutes. They're all "Namek is gonna blow up in FIVE MINUTES!"

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.

As I have said before

I read and watch A LOT of shonen

Shonen is almost 100% of my anime diet, almost like eating nothing but meat

Well i've started to delve into the produce and am currently watching Ouran HSHC

I don't usually go for shojo type anime but I ahve to say I am really enjoying it so far.

There's almost no 'fanservice' and nothing gratuitous and vulgar.

It's a very simple, humorous show that looks like it holds some underlying depth

I'm sure Desert Punk was never aired on Sy-Fy, and it was dubbed by Funimation if that is what you were thinking.

As for the anime, it was pretty good.

That's about right, Anime and Islam are about as polar opposite as it gets.
In anime, booze and boobs are a common sight, whereas in Islam, not so much.
In anime, there are some female characters that are strong-willed and won't take any shit. You won't see any of that with your average Islamic woman.

I could go on and on, but I think I made my point.
BTW, Is there really anime in Somalia or just illegal fan subs there?

Treating the woman as a sex object isn't exactly equality either, you know.

Also, is Anime particularly pro-pork, anti-charity and emphasizes religous co-existance, except with the Abrahamic religions?

You know I recently built a gaming PC but blue ray players where still way to expensive for my lack of use for one. Once I get more financial aid I might pick one up along with a new monitor XD.

What do you guys think about DragonBall Kai? I think the script is much better than the original and even more so when it is uncensored. The new voices are way better and the filler cut out really helps with the pacing of the show. I think 10 minutes of recycled screaming was ridiculous. I own every episode of Remastered DBZ in box sets and Kai blows it out of the water. I am planning on getting all the Kai box sets now.

Ginyu Force entrance compare.

I honestly didn't notcie major changes in the voice acting

Then again I've always found DBZ to be an exceptionally well acted anime, especially for an english dub (the Japanese sucks).

What I didn't like was how they changed Freiza's voice.

I know it's been forever but the second I heard it I knew they changed something. I don't like how it sounds smoother, I feel it almost takes away from him a bit.

Though the new voice is growing on me.

There are tons of now voice actors and word is that Cell with be replaces as well. Raditz sounds more grumpy and less calm and monotone like he did. Vegeta sounds more natural and less gruff. Gohan actually sounds like a four year old boy like he should and finally getting plenty of lines where the characters cuss is awesome.

I like Frieza's new voice. He sounds calm and polite like he should and less like a hobo woman. He actually sounds like a man and an intelligent ruler who is calm and fears nothing. His new lines are better as well and makes him seem more terrifying.
