  1. It's already one of my favorites. Plot: Mikado Ryūgamine is a young man who longs for the exciting life of the big city. At the invitation of his childhood friend Masaomi, he transfers to a school in Ikebukuro. Masaomi warns him about people he doesn't want to cross in the city: a violent man dressed like a bartender, an information merchant, and a mysterious gang called "Dollars." And to top it off, Mikado witnesses an urban legend on his first day in the city: the "Black Rider." I recommend both, the manga and the series :) I like/[B]love[/B] it 'cause it is quite mysteri
  2. I was just talking with someone the other day and I started to talk about how Code Geass is just like Death Note and how the main characters are similar when i started to think who would win if Light Yagami and Lelouch Lamperouge fought each other. There both crazy, smart, fit, and have to ability to make people do what they want (mainly killing them). They would fight each other face to face but rather it would be the situation that was in Death Note with L and Light trying to find each other out. I think that light would win, all he needs is a name and a picture of a person to kill them,
  3. [COLOR="Indigo"][CENTER][IMG]http://img175.imageshack.us/img175/226/lovelycomplex01pk6.jpg[/IMG][/CENTER] Risa Koizumi has always been taller than most people, and Atsushi Ootani has always been shorter than most boys. Risa, who fell asleep during an assembly and is caught doing it ends up being punished by being required to attend summer school. Only to realize that she's stuck in the same summer class with Ootani. Something that annoys both of them since they are always arguing with one another. But when a cute tall guy named Suzuki ends up in the same summer class, Ootani and Risa team u
  4. what are your opinions on people who cosplay, but have to wear glasses? ...okay how do I put this, I mean when someone cosplays but they wear glasses, so they have to wear glasses in the cosplay (when the character does not call for it) do you hate it? not care? or does it annoy you? I was just wondering really because I do want to cosplay (whether I will or not is debatable and depends on money I dont have at the moment) but my vision really sucks so I have to wear glasses (new contacts and convention dont scream a match to me xD)
  5. I'm talking about the long ongoning series like Bleach, Naruto, and One Piece. I know that a few hardcore people will say they've been watching sense they came out but unlike those people most of us starting watching after they became popular. So when did u catch up to the current episode out in the series? (guess the best way to discribe that is to describe the episode for each) One Piece- I caught up just after they arrived at Shaparody Acapelligo Naruto- Shuppuden part of the series is where I caught this one just after team Kakashi reforms and is sent on thier first mission
  6. I have tons of exams next week, so to get myself pumped to study (heh..yea right) I wanted to watch to see how some anime characters do it :) I know of a few already, like I'm sure there are some in Kare Kano, and there are a few in Super Gals (I think) and ummm what else?
  7. [CENTER][IMG]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/9/98/Baccano.jpg[/IMG][/CENTER] I've just watched episode one of [i]Baccano![/i] and I'm left feeling excited but at the same time completely confused. I haven't a clue what's going on. It starts off with a newspaper editor (I think...?) and his assistant discussing a tale. They argue over where the starting point should be, and from whose viewpoint it should be told, and each time a new suggestion is made the story starts there, only to get interrupted. After the break we lose the editor and assistant and get follow-ups on a few of t
  8. To catch those of you who are unfamiliar with the story up to speed, let's begin with Viz's somewhat lame but nevertheless adequate summary of the manga. [quote][I][SIZE=1]Light Yagami is an ace student with great prospects - and bored out of his mind! But all that changes when he finds the Death Note, a notebook dropped by a rogue shinigami death god. Any human whose name is written in the notebook dies, and now Light has vowed to use the power of the Death Note to rid the world of evil. But when criminals begin dropping dead, the authorities send the legendary detective L to track down
  9. [size=1][color=navy][strike]Time for some topic thieving[/strike] I thought this would be an interesting topic for here. I'm just going to copy and paste it because the poster certainly did a nice job in wording it. [i]"This might be an interesting exercise and awesome discussion fodder. We have shows we love. We have shows we hate. In a normal discussion, we tend to heap praise on a show we love and tear into a show that's terrible or too silly. Nothing wrong with that, it's perfectly normal. Yet at the same time many great shows have something that could improved. We think "man, i

  11. Ok first off I'm in a boxing mood. I've been playing Punchout for the Wii and in between my frustrating losses I've been watching [URL="http://www.otakuboards.com/hajime-no-ippo/"][COLOR=#0000ff]Hajime no Ippo[/COLOR][/URL]. I've noticed a lot of similarities between the two. I know Punchout has been around sense 1987, and the Hajime no Ippo came out in 2000 but I have this weird feeling that Ippo is based off of Little Mac. Other than the trainer and their hometowns they could be freaking twins.... I'm curious what you guys think of this. I also want to pose the ultimate question. Wh
  12. [color=navy][strike]More topic thievery.[/strike] A neat little idea I got from another forum. I thought this might be a little fun thing to do for the OB since this year is coming to a close fairly quick, might I add. What you do is list your top 10 favorites in order (I know, it's going to be pretty hard since it's only ten). When it comes to tallying points, #1 gets 10 points, #2 gets 9, and so forth. Two to three weeks should be enough right or should it be 3-4 weeks? Extention if not enough nominations. Friday, January 15 is where I'm thinking about a cut off date at the moment.
  13. I'm pretty surprised no one has written a review about Gantz so far. Anyway though, this anime is so far becoming one of my favorite animes. Its unique since the first episode focuses more on the actions and voices on other peoples minds compared to the focus being on the main character(s). The atmosphere is similar to modern teenagers (how we cope with someone being in trouble and how in some cases when people are in need of help not everyone is up to doing the task). Eventually it gets into the game aspect of the anime [spoiler] where random people who die are stuck in limbo (or at least

  15. what is the most disturbing thing you have seen in an anime? I think hansel and gretel from black lagoon were freeking weird. they're these little twins that were raised in as [spoiler]porn slaves. they get their kicks from putting nails in peoples heads, believing killing people would make them immortal. im not even sure which one is the boy and which is the girl, since they're both split personalitys who take turns wearing a wig. oh yeah, and they made out.[/spoiler][INDENT][SIZE=1][COLOR=red]Hey there [B]goldenboy[/B], next time use spoiler tags so you don't ruin it for people who have yet
  16. Yep, it's that time again! The winter season is upon us, and while there are way fewer shows than fall, winter has no shortage of shows that at least look interesting. Plus, there's no way it could possibly suck as hard as fall did, right? Right?? Right?????

It's got all the crazy plot, insane characters, hot blooded action and participation from the gods themselves that you could ever want in a mecha series. The anime is a re-imagining of Go Nagai's [b]Mazinger Z[/b] (sprinkled with characters and elements of his other series), b
  18. Death Note/CLAMP/Goro Taniguchi/Gundam? Count me in! :love: Alas, if only it were that simple... Code Geass is a futuristic mecha series with character designs by CLAMP (though they had no input, as far as I know, on the story) and direction by Goro Taniguchi (Planetes, Infinite Ryvius, s-CRY-ed, GunxSword). It takes place in an alternate world in which the Empire of Britannia--which is basically the United States, haha--has invaded and taken over Japan. Now called Area 11, Japan is unfairly subjugated, oppressed, blah blah blah. Fiery mecha action ensues. Let's get the g
  19. Hey everyone, I'm looking for Valentine's Day Anime episodes if you guys can suggest some for me. Any genre is okay (although comedy is my fav). I'm sure there's tons out there but I could only come up with a couple. Cheers in advance!
  20. Ok I've just recently started reading manga. I was wondering how long it takes to translate Mangas conpared to Anime. From what i understand it takes less than a week for anime to be translated and subbed. Manga on the other hand I have no idea. I know there is more time put into manga due to typesetting and other stuff.

    Japanese Transcripts

    Greetings! I have an important question to ask. I've been looking for a complete Japanese Transcript for Cowboy Bebop. I've only found episode one, and few other episodes, but not the complete series. Can anyone out there help me? Thankyou.
  22. For those of you fans of Japanese pop culture living in Canada and U.S., some of you may know that Issue No. 98 of "Anime News Network's Protoculture Addicts" (Protoculture Addicts' Guide to 80 Anime You Must Watch) was suppose to be released in stores in summer of 2009 (scheduled date mentioned at [URL]http://www.protoculture.ca/Proto/index.html[/URL]) . Issue No. 97 of this mag came out in summer of 2008. Anyway, it's been months now, and it seems no copy of it appeared in any stores in the Montreal city, which I live nearby. So I was wondering if there's a chance that the magazine is fa
  23. I just completed my Sailor Moon anime collection. I'm really happy about it. Sailor Moon is a major comfort anime for me, so having the whole thing is almost like reuniting with a childhood friend or finding a stuffed animal you loved when you were a kid. What items in your anime/anime-related collection are you most proud of, and why?
  24. [FONT="Comic Sans MS"]Oh, Edward. You lucky sunofagun. Sure, it cost you an arm, a leg and a brother, but plenty of peeps would love to have your skillz. Just clap your hands and the damage goes away? That would be awesome, quite frankly. So today I broke a windshield. So bad it had to be replaced. Those things are really freaking expensive. Thread topic is exactly what it says on the tin.[/FONT]
