Shits about to go down in One Piece, Luffy has his serious face on, you don't fuck with him when he's like that. I can't wait to see all the crews new abilities
About time we got back into action to be honest. I was getting restless with the dragged out childhood arc.
Done reading the NHK manga. I gotta say it took me by surprise after I watched the anime. It's quite different (and I hear the manga was already very different from the original novel it's based on)
I've read all the NHK manga and thought it was great, apparently the Anime follows the Light Novels better though, and I haven't seen that. It also made me notice the NHK world channel.
I'm sort of really into loads of Manga at the moment, with the Haruhi Suzumiya series being my favourite, the first one even comes with the prologue and first chapter of the book. I also watched the Anime in the right order and I can't stand the American VA, so I just watched it in Japanese. I can't wait to read more on the story, and find out Kyon's real name.
I wanted to buy the 10th vol. of Haruhi Suzumiya (that's the latest released in French, I dunno about UK releases) last Saturday when I was at my favourite book shop, but unfortunately they ran out of stock :/. Will have to wait till they restock.
With the manga, we're on Vol. 9 with Vol. 10 coming out in November, in Japan they're up to Vol.14 which probably won't be released here for a few years, but I can wait, I pretty much read the storyline ahead of myself, which I always do even though I shouldn't, and there's plenty more to come thankfully.
I've also been watching The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya, which is hilarious.
After watching so much Gintama and Screenwipe, I just feel bitter towards programs, such as this, which skips on animation in an attempt to be quirky and cut down on work.
I actually watched that first episode a few weeks ago, and have the rest of the series waiting to be watched my HDD right now :p. I find it hilarious too
I'm glad you enjoy it, I just think that Haruhi is an anime where a lot of humour also comes from the expressions of the characters which I do not feel was depicted well.
I think Kyon is the best character, and he's voiced by the same guy as Gintoki (Tomokazu Sugita), his sarcastic was of narrating the story and telling his thoughts is priceless.
In fox cloak mode naruto doesn't need clones for his rasengans, a couple of chapters back you see how, he creates tiny hands within his cloak to put in the chakra to form them. It's either naruto, or kabuto found jirayas body, or it's the forth, but I can't remember if he was sealed or not cos orichimaru tried to summon him against the third during the chunin exams.

Yeah, I noticed that back in the Naruto v Sasuke fight before the timeskip, except the Kyuubi did it for him, but he has so many variations of Rasengan now.
