RE: List all of your mangas and animes you own.

I think the Trigun manga is great. For me it's a little harder to follow, just cause the illustrations are so detailed, and i'm not great with kana sound effects. If you like Trigun at all, I would say get the Manga. The original story comes in a thicker volume (about the size of two normal volumes ...

RE: List all of your mangas and animes you own.

Alright. I finally got a paycheck again, and with that, I purchased some long overdue titles that I've been wanting for a while: Trigun vol. 1 Trigun Maximum vol. 1 Pom Poko on DVD (I EFFING LOVED THAT MOVIE!!!!) Even better, I got them cheaper than Amazon. I love the Borders Rewards weekly coupons!...

RE: Worst Dub Voice?

you said just what I was about it. FFVII was really good. (I guess you can consider it an anime) However I only have the Japanese version, but I've heard the dub voices they used and it was really tight. I guess you just gotta find the good dubbed anime. They're the best when the voice is really uni...

RE: Worst Dub Voice?

I would say that the worst english dub i've ever heard was the character Naruto. It made me hate the whole anime. Videogame voices are never good. One good english dub (at least that's what I liked) was the voice of Spike Spiegel in Cowboy Bebop voiced by Steven Blum. And I really like the english d...

RE: Most overrated anime/manga ever

I agree. Naruto was awesome when it was still kindof small and unknown outside of the Otaku community. Once the anime started on Cartoon Network/WB it all went downhill. It lost all of it's otakuness and turned into an over-marketed watered-down "kids" anime. I still like naruto and the plot/charact...

RE: The Grudge

I wouldn't say they're scarier. Cause they don't have all the graphics and such...but I think the subject matter is more creepy. Especially when you know where they're coming from with it.

RE: Height?

Being 6' - 6'1", I've always had a shorter than me girlfriend. I always like a girl to be shorter than me. Not too much shorter, but at least to my shoulder. It does get difficult when trying to display affection, somebody always has to stretch or bend. But hey i've been single for 2 years so I real...

RE: Bad Reactions to Japanese Food

Well, even though I'm fine, and it wasn't too bad, I did have an unpleasant experience today. So my friend and I were bored, we had some extra cash, and we decided to go to a local Japanese Restaurant/Sushi Bar. (He had never been, I hadn't been in a while) so we go there, order our rolls, (He had U...

Somebody was saying something somewhere about a need for smileys? Perhaps that was mentioned in the "Garage Sales" thread? And that migrated from the "Christianity in Japan" thread. hate them because -- like most other teens -- they are socially inept, hopelessly misguided, and avoid responsibility...

Well, once a mod gets here he can move this thread to the off-topic discussion! ;)

You used to be able to get a little monkey as a pet, but the animal rights "people" got upset and made it illegal.

RE: Teen japan fans

Yeah my only real complaint was at the attitude of some of these kids. I understand when somebody doesn't have the money or if they're just enjoying themselves. But the defiant attitude and "I don't care about anyone" is what gets to me...and who wants to sit all day in the manga aisle anyway? If yo...
