My personality itself I like and wouldn't change a bit of. My problem is that I have trouble relating to people and tend to avoid most social situations. I would change that part of myself, so that more people could get not know my true personality and not see me as the shy quiet person that they pr...

I just saw this movie tonight and I enjoyed it. It was pretty funny and I liked how it played around with stereotypes on all sides. However... My enjoyment of the movie was almost ruined because I got stuck sitting behind this group of teenage girls who were laughing as loud as possible at everythin...

And Shippo. In a recently aired episode they tried to show that he does have some power, and can use it well, and he also serves the purpose of being the commentator of the insane relationship of Kagome and InuYasha, as well as Sango and Miroku. Other than that, I suppose, he does nothing else. I h...

Alanis Morissette's "So Called Chaos"

Has anyone else got Alanis Morissette's new CD yet? I'm a huge fan of her work so I picked the day it was released on the first oppurtunity I got, and although I wouldn't call it her best work I am not dissapointed. It's pretty much in the style of her last album, combining the the type of aingst-ri...

This question must be asked..what is Sango's personality? I like her because of her weapon, but what purpose does she serve? Her backstory is all she has. Other than being an overly-dedicated sister, she seems pretty bland and only there to balance out the testosterone in the group. May I also stat...

I've seen all 26 episodes of the series on subtitled VHS, and I liked it though it's not towards the top of my favorite anime. What I didn't like about it was that it was so serious and melodramatic all the time. People criticize Evangelion for being too serious, but at least it had some humor in th...

I guess I'll have to go against the majority and say anime. I love them both a lot, but I'm just by nature a more visual person, and I prefer to see the story moved by moving pictures. I don't like to compare whether the anime or manga of any particular title is better, because I see them as two ver...

A few safe suggestions to try next: Tenchi Muyo, Ranma 1/2, Fushigi Yugi, Magic Knight Rayearth, Cowboy Bebop, Utena.

If you're in the mood for something very different: Serial Experiments Lain, Haibane Renmei

Thanks for letting me know about the new episodes, I didn't know that they were starting. I already missed the first few new episodes of InuYasha because I didn't know about them, but I'll catch it today at least.

Good episode btw, but what was up with all those commercial breaks?

Classic: Manga. I loved the anime, but it had too much filler and had too many episodes centered around Naru and Umino, whom I don't care for. The manga told the story better. R: Anime. Again I liked both, but I found the anime to make more sense. S: Tie. They're both very different stories, and th...

Since I haven't posted on this topic yet I figured I might as well weigh in. My favorite senshi is Sailor Mars.

So, can we agree to disagree? If that's what you'd like then I'm all for it, but a few final remarks (and Parakiss already said a lot of things that pretty much mirrored what I was thinking, so I'll try to stick areas she didn't already sum up excellently). Then there's an incentive for parents not...

There are no government-mandated food distribution centers; are there any areas unserviced by grocery stores or serviced only by those who sell inferior food? As to areas of poverty: last year we spent $6,911 per student (source) and that's money spent grossly inefficiently. A private school servic...

I first started seeing the posters and trailers for this movie around last December and thought that it looked like a bad idea.

It prevents them from sending them to private schools as they currently exist. If there were no public schools, private schools that charge less would exist. Of course, they might not be as good as the expensive ones, but they would be there and the economic market forces would have their say. If t...
