Well the anime is onlt 27 episdes long, so you dropped it right before it gets back into the swing of things. It's totaly worth your time to go watch the final seven episodes.

I wish there was a sequel to Mx0... It was cancelled because it wasn't popular enough. It's a manga about a kid that ends up in a magic school.. But he can't use magic, and has to come up with ways to fake it and make it seem like he does have the ability to use magic.

Damnit... I haven't been this depressed about a series ending in a awhile. It was awesome, it was funny, and I really want the main character to succeed... I definitely recommend you give the series a try. You can find it on onemanga.

Bleach.....made more sense than it ever has this week.

But Kubo is trolling me again, I know it.

Watched the first season of Darker Than Black. Simply awesome. I see there's a second season out, but I really only watch English versions, so I'm going to hold off on that.

As for Bleach, I don't know what Kubo is going to do. The English season for the cartoon is going on the filler train, and the comic is, well... getting interesting. I normally don't care for Bleach either, but the little boy in me likes seeing bombastic sword fights.

Same here, I don't really care for any of the characters, save for Kenpachi. And that's only because he is the best representation of an Ax crazy Badass normal I've ever seen. And as for the latest chapter . . . Wow, What a TWEEEEEST! *groan*

As for the latest chapter of One Piece, Wow, What a Twist. Just, just like that? No disney death? No "That just made me angry and thus makes me stronger" boast? . . . damn.

Look at the lastest chapter of Bleach. Let's see if bun-wearing magic girl can wiggle out of that one.

Bleach really has gotten old to me. It reminds me of when we were doing that RP of Anti-Geo.

I've been trying to watch Bleach myself... what Kills it for me though is the Filler arcs. They're just missing something that the main arcs have, and it's made me put the series down quite a few times.

I'm in the same boat......almost 30 episodes of filler. I'd rather just wait for the story to start up again than sit through it.
Normally, I don't mind filler, even if it's crap. What annoys me is how it's just flung in halfway through a story. It just shows that the writer(s) (I really don't care who they are) really don't care - and believe that quantity is the key to success.

I find the movies are better than the actual storyline. Even if they are generic.....simply because they're gorgeous

Incidentally, does anyone know where I can read all of 'Bastard!!'. One manga only goes up to 77

Bount arc wasn't made filler, at least in the comic. The show references it, yes.

I don't even care about the story much anymore. I mean, yes, certain parts may perk me up, but at the end of the day I'm just watching to see who kicks who's ass.

Bleach isn't as good as people think it is.

Changing subjects, anyone remember the Sony dub of Rurouni Kenshin? God that sucked.

THIS. IS. ONE. OF. THE. BEST. MANGA. THAT. I'VE. EVER. READ.

It's only eight chapters though. But it's like FLCL mixed with a random comedy sketch with philosophic undertones that gets darker as you go along, and with a surprisingly deep ending. I found it just going through different manga on the site.

Okay, apparently there are rumors of old TV series getting rereleases. An example of this would be the Sailor Moon series (god help me that just sounds wrong on so many levels) being "Redubbed" like how FUNI redubbed the One Piece series after the "editing" (aka *insensitivity*!) by 4Kids.

Any other series known for this? Or at least any info as to it?

Hell, if that's the case I would love to see a remastered release of Trigun.

Funimation recenty reliscensed Trigun, but it'll be a direct re-release of the old version. They won't be redubbing it or anything like that. They'll be doing some sort of re-release later this year.

Not that Trigun needed to be redone, since the original dub was just fine.

The owner of Sailor Moon, Toei, snagged back the US rights years ago. There's been talk of them trying to get it re-released in the US as of late, but there's nothing concrete. But Toei's trying to get back into the US after they already tried and failed miserably a few years ago.

Oh okay, guess I should have said by "remastered" I mean made to be HD, so no real editing done, just different sound parameters.

As for the Sailor Moon, would it be done by FUNImation then? I mean Toei Animation seems to have a lot of close ties to FUNImation as of late, like how Anipalx has the ties to VIZ media for dubbing.
