No Razz

Started Wolf's Rain. The first episode was alright, but seemed a little forced. Still, first episodes are rarely the best.

I have the first dvd of Wolf's Rain, and couldn't get into it. *shrugs*

And thanks for the vote of confidence. Wink

The friend who lent me Wolf's Rain disc 1 loves it, but then she has a wolf obsession.

That could explain it. Very Happy

And I have new anime! My friend who is moving to China in a few weeks gave me her set of Samurai 7, so now I'll be able to see the whole thing! Very Happy

I saw the first couple episodes of Wolf's Rain, thought it was pretty interesting, but for whatever reason, I didn't watch any more of it....hmmm....perhaps I'll have to check that out at some point.

I'm almost hoping it turns out to be bad, so I don't have to go out and buy the rest of the series, heh.

Macross Plus arrived today. A different friend always names it as his favourite anime, and it's a mere four episodes long, so should be a quick watch. I don't like having two series on the go at once, though, so it'll have to wait until after Wolf's Rain (however much of that I end up watching...)

Disc one of Wolf's Rain = meh. Some promise, but not enough to make me buy it. An interesting idea, averagely executed.

I'm about to watch, at last, The Place Promised In Our Early Days. I'll keep you (whoever you may be, unidentified reader) informed.

Done. Horrible translation, good film.

After a couple of years of hype, I've started Bleach. So far, so mediocre. Very predictable. Then again, I'm only three episodes in.

Scrapped Princess is a good anime that seems like it belongs on the adult swim lineup (the old one atleast).

Vandread is a decent harem/ mecha anime mold that does not overdo the fanservice, and although generally cheesy with a nerve-grating main character, has a story I enjoyed watching (somewhat of a startrek rip).

before Evangelion wowed me, but now I just enjoy the blood and gore. the movie (alternate ending to the series) takes the cake for WTF?ism.

Hellsing manga > anime

I'm not seeing alot of Full Metal Alchemist love 'round here. the anime is a good watch, but the manga feels more fullfilling.

Noein is an odd one about junior high students drama and the war that their alternate universe adult forms are fighting. I consider it a good, original watch (although I have yet to finish it).

it warms my heart to see such trigun love.

I <3 FMA. It was the first anime series I ever owned. Smile I haven't done much reading of the manga, but that is because as a rule I don't buy manga. Too expensive. The only exception to that will be Fruits Basket. I may have to *gasp* buy my own copies of the manga since my friend is now in China.

Same here. I'd happily read manga, but it's quite expensive for what you get.

As for FMA, it's one of those things that's frequently recommended to me, but I've never got round to watching.

the internet is a glorious place. I don't suffer from it, but my friend says it strains his eyes to read online; maybe because he has glasses.

also, most of these are fansubbed. it has never particularly irked me until I tryed reading full metal alchemist online; I was too used to the official translator's style.

I do find my eyes start to struggle if a I read on a montior for too long. Still, reading manga isn't as intensive as reading a novel, so I should be ok.

On the subject of fansubs, I haven't read any fansubbed manga, but if it's varied in quality as fansubbed anime, I can see why it might sometimes trouble you. I've watched a couple of fansubs that were horrifically badly translated, to the point of frequently being unintelligible.

I just remember the fansubber naming Lin as Ling; among other things. in retrospect it seems a bit petty.
