I'm now about halfway through the series since I got the complete boxset. I absolutely adore this anime; mainly because it's so much darker than it initially appears. Although I could do without Ahiru/Duck's two friends, it's at the point where they're beginning to annoy me somewhat. Also, I think I...

I really have to wonder if it's less about the parents being neglectful and more that they're overwhelmed and weren't sure what to do. With working in a medical setting (and planning to study to be a nurse), I see this sort of thing once in a while in patients and families. It's easy to say they're ...

I'm not sure which is sadder, the video or the insensitive asses who are commenting on it with things like "fat bitch" and "stop eating". Wow, I hope these trolls like it when something happens to someone close to them and people point...

I downloaded this anime to see if it would be worth putting money into buying it.

Needless to say, I'm looking at purchasing the set now. It really is such an adorable anime. I love it. :D

I would say my top 3 favorite languages are: 1) Spanish. I'm working on becoming fluent in Spanish, and in the area I live in, it would be a pretty handy skill to have. 2) Japanese. I only know a few words, but I do love the language. I also like saying "arigatou" and such to my Japanese friends, an...

Y'know, it's funny. I didn't think the new Indiana Jones movie was meant to be a documentary, or a "fair" portrayal of the Communists in the 1950s. Here I thought it was just supposed to be a good popcorn flick. Silly me. /sarcasm

As part of my birthday presents, my fiance gave me the first two episodes of the Xenosaga trilogy to go along with Ep. III that I purchased a couple months ago. I'm slowly making my way through Episode I, as it's as cutscene-heavy (if not more so) than the portion I played of Episode III. Still, ver...

I used to play the "Old School" Sierra adventure games when I was in my early teens. One of the ones I didn't get at the time of its release (but that I've subsequently bought off eBay) was the game Torin's Passage . It was created by Al Lowe, who also did the Leisure Suit Larry series, but I digre...

One of my favorite Hentai is the soft-core OAV series Fencer of Minerva . Sure, it's fanservicey as hell, but it has a very entertaining storyline. Not to mention the opening theme is awesome, and Diana's character is well-done. What I really like about it, though, is that the sex scenes in it are l...

For the most part, I find character deaths in anime to be interesting twists to the storyline. I was another one who was blindsided by Roy Fokker's death in Robotech . I literally went "WTF? How did that happen?" So, if it's used in a way that makes sense in the storyline, then it can easily bring m...

A lot of the more serious anime tend to be a bit more "realistic". Ditto with many of the sci-fi anime. My fiance is getting me into Tekkaman Blade, and that's a bit more realistic than most. It's a decent anime, despite its age.

Ditto on most of the rest already mentioned that I'm familiar with.

Yup, I have one. I'm just thankful I got it used for about $8, instead of paying full-price for it. Musashi: Samurai Legend/Samurai Legend Musashi (I'm never quite sure which way to read it, so I think of it both ways). I thought it would be a fun little action/RPG title. Boy, was I ever wrong!

My question is, what do they do ? Do they fight evil? Perform in a band? Sit around, paint each others' nails and gossip? They seem pretty useless. It's like they took the idea of Sailor Moon and some of the other magical girl animes, took out everything that made them neat, and gave us this. (Not t...

I'm rather enjoying this. It could easily become my new favorite parody. :D

My only teeny little nitpick are the occasional jokes about eating/throwing up (Bulimia). I dunno, those make me go "WTF?" more than laugh.

Still, quite a kick to watch. :lol:

Count me as another one with genuine praise for DiC. If it weren't for them, I wouldn't have made the connection between my childhood anime loves and my current anime love.

I picked myself up Xenosaga Episode III last week when I bought my fiance Super Smash Brothers Brawl for his Wii. It's an awesome game, though it's a bit heavy in the cutscene department. :P

Personally, I'm split on the whole topic of ghosts and such. I live about an hour's drive from the Whaley House, said to be the most haunted home in America.
