correct

 

manga are the comics or graphic novels

 

anime are the cartoons or movies.

 

 

also just found this program. if you read online mange or download it this program makes it sooooooooooooooooooooooo much easier.

also works for comics aswell.

just caught up on the latest naruto & bleach manga.

 

naruto is starting to get good again. although i think they might be leading into another round of filler.

 

bleach just got awesome again. real awesome.

What are the current bleach episodes running?

I stopped watching after they they went into Hueco Mundo and then all of a sudden BAM fillers start that have nothing to do with the current story arc(i mean they literally ignore the fact that they are supposed to be in hueco mundo and are all of a sudden back in the real world) interrupting the best part. :doh:

They're still on fillers at the moment.

 

That's lame. So is it the same set of fillers in the middle of Hueco Mundo or a new set?

It's different. The Zanpakutous come out of there swords and cause trouble becuase of a bad zanpakutou taking over them. Then it turns to really shit fillers. Like they go to the beach and zanpankutous fall in love.

 

At the moment I'm reading the Gantz manga. If only they followed the manga in the anime it would have been sick.

Fullmetal Alchemist

Bleach

One Piece

XXXholic (Name is legit)

Starting to watch Fairy Tail...

 

BTW Straight Jacket is awesome.. It's basically a three part movie (heavy violence and mass blood and gore) about magicians who use magic to blow the SHIT out of evil creatures. Is very good.

absolutely amazing. i recomend watching it as soon as you get a chance.

 

i watched through full metal alchemist brotherhood a couple of months ago. it follows the manga closer than the original series... definitely worth a watch even if youve seen the original FMA series.

A list of some of my favourite anime I've watched.

 

-Death note; must watch for anyone into anime.

-Durarara!!; absolutely loved this anime; the soundtrack is pure bliss (my favourite in any anime I've watched).

-Black lagoon; Revy.... Enough said.

-Code geass; one of the best endings to an anime.

-Darker then black; just over half way through and loving it.

-Deadman wonderland; short and sweet.

-Redline; over the top intergalactic race, with an epic art style.

 

A list of anime I haven't watched yet but want to.

 

- Baccano!

- Claymore

- Gantz

- Ergo Proxy

- xxxholic

- Samurai Champloo

I hate to say it, but Naruto is without a doubt the best anime ever created. Give it some credit, yes it's cartoon network, but it's still goddamn amazing. Intense fights, unique and individual characters, and a pretty decent storyline. Bonus points for being able to talk about it with people who aren't really anime fans but have seen the show.

Yeah agree on Berserk, I recently watched the new 3 part movie which covers the original 25 episode anime that came out n the 90's. The 3 part movie in HD mind blowing and was the perfect accompaniment on a recent flight to China. I also rewatched the originals and got the soundtrack Legendary Wind Sword by Susumu Hirasawa. I recommended it to a movie buff friend of mine and he also is blown away. The original team also made wings of honnemaise (sp).
