I thought i\'d make this topic, not entirely sure if there is a topic already but meh.

So yeah pretty straight forward to be honest if you like anime/manga heres the place to hang out.

I watch/read the following:

Naruto
Currently at episode 114 - Anime
#3 - Manga (yeah I am really behind >_>)

Death Note
Currently at episode 30 - Anime
#4 - Manga (again behind but I am really quite a bit more now).

Also I am slowly starting to get into Bleach, i\'ve watched a couple of episodes on the internet and might buy #1 of the manga soon.

I must stress that Naruto and Death Note have FANTASTIC soundtracks. Seriously very good work. I have Naruto anime soundtracks 1-3 and Death Note anime 1-2. It\'s really cool reading the manga while listening to the music too 8)

Edit: Oh yeah just ordered this, soon be here in a couple of days.

Hi, anime is awesome, but can you drop the chat talk? I was bothered a lot for doing that on this place, and you might too. On cubed3 chat talke is not encouraged.

Good topic though.

Been needing a thread like this really. Half of C3 hates anime/manga or just don't see the appeal, but that's their problem <3.

Depending on how it goes I might sticky this. What does everyone else think?

Anyway. So what am I gonna post my currently watching/reading? Or my whole collection? Smilie

My whole collection involves piracy (not too much... yet.)

OK; so currently watching:

Naruto Shippuden
This is my "regular" anime. I usually watch it when each episode is subbed but since I downloaded Pokťmon it's stacked up a bit. The last time that happened was when the Gaara/Sasori arc bored the hell out of me. Smilie

Pokťmon
Believe it bitches! It's a nostalgia fest! And some of them I had never seen before! O_O I currently have the original 2 series' (Indigo + Orange Islands) downloaded, and the DVDs are expensive as hell, so I'm going to wait a little bit and then buy them. It'll take me a while to watch all this though... Smilie

I'm currently on episode 22 (Abra and the Psychic Pokťmon), after I just watched 21, which is "Bye Bye Butterfree". Fans of the series, or anyone who watched it all those years ago, should know exactly what happens in that episode. Smilie

Lucky Star
After finished Dragon Ball I needed another Anime to watch, so while I waited for Pokťmon to torrent I watched a bit of this on Youtube, and it's awesome so far, so I think I'll watch some more of it once my Pokťmon fest is over.

Dragon Ball
Finished watching the original series, and I refuse to pirate more since the remastered DBZ dub is out on DVD and it's not that expensive. All I need is more money; so hiatus.

Bleach
On hiatus after I got a bit bored. I plan to buy the DVD when I get the money.

currently reading:

Pokťmon Special
The Pokťmon manga is exactly the way Pokťmon should be. It's better in all ways than the anime has ever been, and it has fan service! What else needs to be said? Smilie

Death Note
Currently in hiatus after not being able to find volume 4 and running out of money. Smilie That's right! I need more money!

DragonBall Z
How long does it take them to release that thing over here!? Seriously!

D.N.Angel
Where is volume 11. Seriously WHERE IS IT!?

That's all for now. Half of my mangas I've finished collecting like Love Hina, .hack//twilight and Pita-Ten.

Does YuGiOh count?Smilie

Can\'t be arsed with 5Ds, but currently going through the original season in Japanese. It has an infinitely better script and action, damn bastard 4Kids. Smilie

Oh, and I read one of the YuGiOh manga comics the other day. Pretty good, might collect some. Smilie

Well put that then XD
Theres nothing wrong with it, but it prooves how addictive this shit is!

Hmm I need to work more XD

( Edited 21.05.2008 21:21 by Echoes221 )

Yeah but the only series I currently watch are Death Note and Naruto Smilie

The thing i like about starting new anime/manga is the amount of material that will keep you going for aaaages. When you get to my point with naruto and bleach, you have to wait weekly for each new ep, and if you read hellsing you have to wait a month for each new chapter.

ONE PIECE, ONE PIECE, ONE PIECE, ONE PIECE, ONE PIECE, ONE PIECE, ONE PIECE, ONE PIECE, ONE PIECE, ONE PIECE, ONE PIECE.

BEST. THING. EVER. Smilie


Other than One Piece, I've seen quite a few, so here's my anime list. Smilie

Holy shit! I completely forgot Azumanga Daioh! Of which I own the full series! *Adds to list*

Someone reccommend me some more Anime! Smilie And I\'ve grown past the age where I avoid anything with fan service in it. Love Hina is one of the most awesome mangas ever, so avoiding fan service would make me a hypocrite.

Anime I have heard good things about/will probably watch eventually:

Lucky Star
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

Hopefully this list will grow. Smilie

EDIT: Definitely watch some of Miyazaki\'s Ghibli films! Laputa is incredible! (Yet I don\'t own it, what\'s wrong with me?)

( Edited 21.05.2008 22:36 by SuperLink )

Ew...you LIKED Love Hina? O.o That said, I\'ve not read the manga, only seen the anime. Most horrendous thing I\'ve ever seen.
That said, I REALLY hate excessive fanservice. Don\'t even like it in Haruhi, though I love Haruhi for other reaons. Smilie

You\'ve NOT seen Haruhi or Lucky Star? They\'re awesome, watch them now.

WATCH ONE PIECE. Seriously, anyone who likes Naruto or Bleach should like One Piece. Naruto/Bleach start off better than One Piece, but One Piece quickly overtakes them. Smilie

I mainly like shonen fighting stuff. At the moment I\'m hooked on One Piece (duh), Naruto, Bleach and D. Gray-Man.
They\'re all awesome, but imo:
One Piece>>>>>D.Gray-man>Naruto>Bleach.

Oh, yeah, forgot to mention, the One Piece dub is the most horrendous thing ever. If you\'ve seen the dub, disregard your current opinion of it. For god\'s sake, get it fansubbed. :p
K-F subs rock.

I didn't like the anime of Love Hina. I only saw bits of the dub and the voices were totally wrong and annoying as hell. The story is also all wrong, and it's very censored compared to the manga.

The manga of Love Hina is seriously awesome. I just hope those who watched the anime first aren't put off the manga because of it :/

I've seen 2 episodes of Lucky Star. It reminds me of Azumanga but it's stupidly chibi (not a bad thing)

Konota's gaming obsession is part of what makes it so awesome!

And if Haruhi has Phoenix Wright parodies in it then it HAS to be awesome. Smilie

Once again I am disappointed by the lack of Cowboy Bebop.

And you call yourself animť fans.

Good topic though.

Dude, the guy has over 2000 posts over the last 4 years. Do you honestly think we haven't already tried telling him that? XD It's hopeless, man. Smilie

I reckon Cowboy Bebop is one of the few dubs I've seen that I actually liked. Smilie Usually go for subs, just to be safe. :p

OK, so we all know about Naruto and Cowboy Bebop; anyone got any more obscure recommendations?

I recommend 'Read or Die'. It's about a trio of sisters that control paper. It's more awesome than it sounds. :p

Lucky Star is awesome. It features 17 year old girls who look 10 who prance around doing absolutely nothing for 20 minutes. Now that\'s an anime.

Konata\'s hentai obsession is part of what makes it so so worthy of rule 34\'ing!

Corrected.

Konata's friends always say that Konata is too young for "what she's into"

So I always figured they were younger than that. The Super deformation doesn't help. Smilie

Lucky Star is the epitome of fan service.

Senior ModeratorStaff Member

I havn't seen much of it but the chibi style makes it hard for me to agree...
