#5 Posted by YoungJustice (6877 posts) - - Show Bio

@Jonny_Anonymous : It was pretty good at the start. Got meh to me for a while. Then I liked it again after they introduced a certain character.

The still ongoing manga is better then the anime in my opinion

@Jonny_Anonymous: You're reading Death Note instead of watching it? WHY?!? The animation and voice acting in the anime is top notch.

I feel like I wan't to start watching Bleach again. Last time I watched they were just entering Hueco Mundo..

#8 Posted by Jonny_Anonymous (33961 posts) - - Show Bio

@YoungJustice: @BlackArmor: Not sure if I should jump on the anime or keep reading the manga

@Project_Worm: Because I need something to read and I'v got Fullmetal Alchemist taking up my time

Bleach seems to be the most popular, not sure if I'd like it though

#9 Posted by Irishlad (589 posts) - - Show Bio

Anyone watch Steins Gate? it takes a while to get good but when it gets good it's excellent :P

Also my all time favourite anime is this...

#10 Posted by Project_Worm (3461 posts) - - Show Bio

@Jonny_Anonymous: Then you should read the FMA manga and watch the Death Note anime... trust me it's just THAT good.

Bleach is one of those that got me into anime that I slowly lost interest in. Maybe I'll start watching Naruto again too.

#11 Posted by Jonny_Anonymous (33961 posts) - - Show Bio

@Project_Worm: I'll prob check out the anime after I'm done with the manga

I might check out Bleach at some point, something I hate though is One Piece

@Jonny_Anonymous: Suit yourself buddy.

I still listen to this on a regular basis

@Irishlad: that reminds me of an old Bruce Lee film

@Project_Worm: Not as good as this

Tobi as Obito, yay or hell nay?

@Irishlad: Also Stein Gates looks pretty interesting, I may check it out
#16 Posted by Irishlad (589 posts) - - Show Bio

FMA Brotherhood is good not better than Cowboy Bebop though in my opinion :P. Have you watched it? Steins Gate is great but you need to have patience for the first few episodes :P.

Anyone watch Baccano?

Currently watching Accel World, Eureka Seven: Ao, Saint Seiya Omega, Sword Art Online and La storia della Arcana Famiglia. Just finished watching Puella Magi Madoka Magica, which was a pleasant surprise I must say.

@Irishlad said:

A good one and with a great ending song. Isaac and Miria ftw lol

You should definitely check it out.

So you say I should stick with Darker than Black?  

@ComicMan24: Cool cool, have you watched Sket Dance?
#23 Posted by FoxxFireArt (3559 posts) - - Show Bio

Why is it that manga is considered an Off Topic when it's just comics from Japan. The only people that separate to two are Westerners. Aren't comics still comics when they're translated into other languages?

If these were comics made in France would people still consider them Off Topic?

#24 Posted by Project_Worm (3461 posts) - - Show Bio

@Jonny_Anonymous: I can't promise you will like it... But, there is a HUUUUGGE possibility that you will..

@FoxxFireArt: I PM'd a Mod to ask where to put it and I was told off topic

@KnightRise: If this was done 3-4 years ago, I would have been ok with it but now it hard to make sense of a failed genin within one year, was able to fight with the 4th hokage.

#28 Posted by Irishlad (589 posts) - - Show Bio

that was great scene also enjoyed the scene where Claire Stanfield and Rachel are talking.

I'm thinking of watching Fate/Zero has anyone watched it yet? is it any good?

#29 Posted by ComicMan24 (147095 posts) - - Show Bio

@Irishlad:Fate/Zero was one of my favourites this season. Very good one and way superior to Fate/Stay night.

Let me try and hold back my surprise that they would separate manga from comics at Comic Vine. **sarcasm**

Might check it later. Have a bunch of other anime I want to see first.

#33 Posted by Irishlad (589 posts) - - Show Bio

I know Fate/Zero is a prequel but would you say Fate/Stay night should be what I watch first in order to pick up on things?

Or is it safe to just start with Fate/Zero?

Also around the table what's an Anime you think was cut short too quick and should be continued? If so what would you like to see happen?

@Irishlad:Nah, you can watch Fate/Zero first. Did that too and had no problem picking up things.

On the top of my head, Pandora Hearts. Too many things left unanswered.

@Jonny_Anonymous: Yup. Great animation and story.

Sket Dance is pretty cool. I'm going to have to dig into the Manga though, it seems to be the superior format.

Simple. Because Whiskey Media used to have a site specific for Manga/Anime and I think that of all people I don't have to explain that to you, lol.

Exactly, and he has no reason to hate existence that much; he died as a hero, why come back so blood thirsty because one girl died in war? I'm still skeptical if its 'the real Obito", mostly because he wouldn't have been alive/old enough to have had influenced Yahiko to found Akatsuki or control the Hidden Mist for years, or physically large enough when he appeared during the nine tails attack.

Not be a generic "OMFG N4RUTO SUX" hater, but I genuinely believe Kishimoto ran out of good ideas right about when the War began. I mean, we're not talking Kubo-level things, but still, lol.

Honestly while Sword of the Stranger had great animation, it could do much better in the story department.
