I'm thinking Berserk, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Fullmetal Alchemist and Attack on Titan.

Any suggestions to plug those last two holes? Will probably just get more Dragon Ball if not.

Berserk and Jojo are good

FMA is fine but lesser than the above mentioned

AoT is pretty mediocre

I personally would pick Jojo over Berserk but I wouldn't fault either choice.

Anyway Gash Bell remains probably my favorite manga of all time but not too many people have read it

The anime cuts short so if you want to continue you'll have to read it

Just got into reading Glass Mask and other than that joke page Arakawa drew along with the omake about Roy Mustang, I can see where Skip Beat! gets its inspiration from.

After finishing reading the scans of the third volume of Glass Mask, I kinda get the feeling that Maya is a kind of person who would steal a gun and shoot herself just so she can properly emulate a death scene. I mean she stood in the rain all night to get herself sick so she can get a certain scene of a play right.

Not to mention diving into the river in the middle of the winter for a ticket in the beginning chapters.

Also, I just realize the Gundam parody manga got the joke from Glass Mask when the first chapter has Tomino punching Amuro's VA, Tohru Furuya just to get him to voice the character's anger the way he wanted.

With that said, do you think Hayami is a budding pedophile for Maya?

Really? Three days of inactivity? Might as well post something I have been doing during that time aside from mental fatigue from class projects and journals.

After reading the 17th volume of Glass Mask, lets just say that Ayumi have become one of my favorite characters. Don't know how the anime series from 2005 handled that since I haven't seen it yet but what she did to that bitch Norie was epic, almost in the same level as what Mustang did to Envy.

What Norie did was sick, I hope more gets piled on her later on.

With that said, Hayami had just indirectly orphaned a girl he's starting to (If not already) fall in love with, leading to her breakdown and getting taken advantage to the point her career gets ruined.

Real smooth man, real smooth...now he's going to have to live with the fact for the rest of his life.

What happened to Maya's mom was sad, I mean while she was hard on her, even tried to dump boiling water on her for trying to become an actress, in the end she was shown to have felt bad and does indeed care for her daughter. With that said, Haru was a much better mother to Maya than Kyoko's mom was on Skip Beat!

It tells you something about Kyoko's mom considering that Haru tried to dump a freaking pot of boiling water on Maya!

In the end, she went out in a death pose made famous by Joe Yabuki and later repeated by Kamina.

For some reason, I kinda get the feeling that Ayumi and Maya may be gay for each other...

It depends on whether or not you like shoujo but it is a very interesting series and I also notice few references that would be used in later anime series. With that said, Maya really seem to have tons to people talking shit behind her back and even get tormented by them...jeez man.

Speaking of, has anybody played Dragonball Xenoverse yet? I never thought I'd be tempted again to get a game in this franchise, but that and Revenge of King Picollo for Wii actually look like they might be worthwhile. And I traded in Budokai 1 and 2 years ago.

It's pretty fun. Nothing spectacular, but it's a solid game.

Reading further into Glass Mask (volume 25), Ayumi and Maya really seem to enjoy getting too deep into their respective roles. I know there's method acting but talk about overdoing it at some points.

Hell, Ayumi even literally kicked a dog so she can emulate her role as a villainess better. This is why I wouldn't put it past Maya to steal a gun and shoot herself just so she can practice for her death scene better.

Speaking of Maya, I have to admit, I'm getting tired of her inferiority complex.

Finally going to get around to watching Cowboy Bebop. It (along with FMA: Brotherhood) was one of the series that originally made me want to see what this anime stuff was all about. A few years past and I still haven't seen it. In fact, it's been a while since I last watched any anime series. Last one I saw was probably either Code Geass or Darker Than Black.

Anyway, got next week off work and the Bebop blu-rays sitting here, so hopefully I'll get through most if not all of it next week. Also have a bit of an urge to start watching Robotech from time to time.

Fast-paced is not always a bad thing. Dragging things out can ruin a great anime.

You could definitely say that for Naruto. They start fight scenes and then interrupt them with flashbacks that last about three episodes before finally resuming the fights.

Cowboy Bebop is a ton of fun. I've probably seen it four or five times, mostly in two-day marathons. Hope you enjoy it, It's safe to say it's one of the most iconic anime series of all time from a western perspective.

Also have a bit of an urge to start watching Robotech from time to time.

If you ever do, please give the original SDF Macross the love it deserves instead of watching the chopped up and pasted together Frankenstein monster of a localization that is Robotech. Robotech has nostalgic value for those that saw it as kids, but since you sound like you've never seen it before I'd recommend you watch Macross properly first. SDF Macross is also my favourite anime of all time, so if I seem a bit pushy about it hopefully that explains why.

It also happens on Dragon Ball, Dragging Ball.
