    Watching Naruto. Up to about 201 and Shippuuden 32 at the same time...lalala. Reading the manga as well. Damn all this dodginess! *wants a complete set of the anime and manga* Probably wasn't a good enough girl this year though... *evil grin*

    Bleach has been on hold until I get more episodes.

    Watching Shipuuden (waiting for the next one), Bleach (on 139), Outlaw Star, started Hellsing, watching Death Note and Blood + (dubbed versions yeah yeah i know, but there are some dubs I like, Cowboy Bebop is a great Dub).

    How do you guys get your anime? You know...the anime thats only out in japan right now? I have a couple of places, Video Bleach for...well duh....and Veoh for Shipuuden.

    Also, where do you get the mangas?

    FMA rocks!!! Such an awesome anime!

    I watched the first 5 episodes of Deathnote and I hated it...just too damn boring for me :( It probably would have gotten better, but I couldn't stick it out that long.

    Still watching Naruto Shippuden, Bleach and I'm rewatching Witch Hunter Robin.


    I don't know about everyone else but I get my manga online at One Manga or Manga Volume (I find One Manga keeps it up to date better) They probably aren't the best but oh well....

    That's what sucks, having to wait a week between updates just to read one chp, which never seem to be long enough, so I wait two-three weeks between the Bleach and Naruto manga updates so I have more to read in one sitting.

    Is the One Piece manga better than the anime? At first it was good, then after awhile I couldn't stand watching the anime........

    Death note is hardly 'dark'. It's pretty light considering some of the other crazy shi....stuff you can get your hands on.
    Ergo proxy is good, but character development sucked.

    I'm watching Texhnolyze right now, and loving it.

    Watching the last ep of Le Chevalier D'Eon. This is the first episode that I've been wanting to watch... the last one.
    I'm pretty disappointed considering the great reviews this series got. It's one of the least gripping series I've watched and I've watched a few.

    OP manga is awesome. This is the first real manga/anime where the every member "main group" is awesome. I love all of them. I also love the completely randomly hilarity they stick in at the most inappropriate times. I didn't like the anime because I felt embaressed for the characters and just watching it, but it's just funny in the manga.

    Goddamnit why are people watching Death Note! Yea DN is not very dark in comparison to some of the other shit out there.

    Go watch Devilman. I swear the stuff in that anime could make some people cry. It's just so brutal lol

    Yeah most of the OP main characters are cool..the anime was just sad though.

    I don't know how people can bare to watch Death Note, I watched a couple of episodes and I thought it was extremely boring. I forced myself to watch a few episodes in hopes that it might get better but it clearly was a waste of precious time...lol

    Haven't watched Devilman, might look into it......but you got me hooked to GTO and now I have nothing to read....stupid time zones.....

    Personally, I really enjoyed DN, just didn't think it was that dark. As soon as "something in particular" happened, I lost interest but watched it to the end anyway.

    Finished LeCD'Eon. Waste Of Time.

    Now watching Grappler Baki and reading GTO.

    Btw Met, got tired of waiting for you so downloaded a hunk of GTO from Boxtorrents.

    That's ok, since all you could have done is left MSN on and it woulda have auto sent when I logged in.

    I really should set up some sort of Tutorial on how to use IRC so people can gain access to manga. That might be slightly illegal on my part though lol

    Depends if you post it publicly or send the t.u.t to certain people :p

    I finished reading GTO today. Loved it; really great manga. I've decided I want to try out the L.A version. Just incase they've hidden some hotties in the cast hehe.
    Now, if they used Yutaka in there, it'd be heaven!

    I'm still watching Grappler Baki. I'm struggling to get into it but I was poked and prodded until I agreed to watch it from some guy who came into my work last weekend.
    He says he's going to come back in a couple of weeks and I'd "better have watched it" so I had better give it a fair go.
    Besides, I can't stop watching anything until it's finished no matter how piss-poor it may be.

    Yah, the Live Action. Bring on the hotties! (hopefully)

    Yeah he wasn't as two-dimensional as I expected. I think perhaps the perverted middle-aged man hook was overused, and so was the teen suicide.
    They're pretty lucky OniOni was so hilarious. I think he at least doubled the value.

    Ah, nah the LA is not so great. The guy is just not Onizuka.

    It's manga, teen suicide is apparently quite common in manga's lol. Omg how great was it when he stuck that bird on the woman's back when she wanted to be an "angel". I rofl'd >_<

    Lol or when he tells that kid to tell his parents why his window was broken "Tell them an eagle broke it" rofl

    I laughed my butt off when they found out they weren't looking for turtle eggs, but treasure and punished OniOni lolol.
    And when he sticks his 'hair' back on with instant glue, and when Mayu shows up and OniOni catches that guy falling from the rooftop then he goes up and and he's so pissed he's shaking the crap outta that guy without even realising it hahaha.

    Seriously though, Uchiyamada was so damn annoying with his whining all the time. 4 pages of him whining? Ugh, that so could have better spent.
    Teshigawa was pretty funny though. Didn't think he'd flip THAT bad lol.

    And what was with his cop mate. I still haven't figure out if he was actually talking to OniOni or if he has some form of psychosis where he just thinks he was. Bizarre-O!
