    Thanks Binge, I'm going to probably order two from Amazon.. Pretty good prices.. I found another site while looking.. But forgot it because of it being at my RM's house.. lol

    Well, I watched the whole series of Black Lagoon.. I gotta say.. it was a 5.. The ending was just wtf.. That's it?? But it did have some good action epi.

    Now, I am probably going to watch, Zone of the Enders, or re-watch Madlax. I really liked how Madlax was on guns and girls.. lol.. Or, start Gundam Seed... I watched it here and there us style.. can't wait to see Japanese..

    That's funny, I just finished Black Lagoon the other day, it's not an epic by any means, but it was still really enjoyable. It kept me interested.

    I'm curently watching Project ARMS. It's pretty good so far. Storyline drags and gets repetitive sometimes, but overall enjoyable.

    I think Melody of Oblivion is next on the list.

    :roll: that's funny man! lol.. Yeah, I'm with you. It did keep me interested to want and watch it. But not epic.

    I'll have to see, I think I've seen Project Arms... But knowing me I haven't... :roll:

    I notice I seem to enjoy these animes even more the second time (seems like I miss a lot the first time around)

    After I finish Kenshin I think I will give Bleach a try

    I was gonna see Code Geass but it looks like the 3rd part has a long wait at Netflix...(I would hate to get all psyched in a series than have to wait a long time to see the last part, lol)

    Yeah, I watch anime series a few times over. I all ways do a few things at once, so I do miss parts.. :laugh:

    You'll have to get the movies also MK. The Kenshin movies.. You'll know even more about him.

    As for Bleach... English is up to 1** something, then the Japanese is 2** something.. There is a few differences and well.. There is a lot of fillers... LOTs.. Naruto does the same.. But, it is a great anime that still is going on. IMHO

    having a job seems to be cutting into your anime too dam much....Tell the boss you need more anime time...
    ( its instant view.. I think you will like Kurau quite a bit, let me know)

    :roll: Well, since it's Instant view, I'll have to turn on the 360 and watch it.. No way I'm going iE... I'm forced to use it via only way my ordering system allows us to view it... That's IT! lol

    As for the bosses... Their crying I have tomorrow off.. Only day off this pay week.. :roll:

    Story:

    So, I live in a hurricane style area.. So, it doesn't help much that I also work at a hospital. We are a level 5 evac. Meaning if it's still a cat 5, we could stay if needed... Well... A few years ago, when I was just a grill cook and their peon, I brought everything I needed for a stay over at the hospital. The Director at the time felt that if He, and the chef had to stay, I do to... Thanks... Well, I then took my full body pillow, and sleeping bag into the Cafe, and threw it under my Pizza warming area, its about 10f by 6f in size.. I then said that's my sleeping area and if anyone has a problem, I know how to burn food! :roll:

    So, now they ask if I just sleep in my cutie hole every now and again.. :roll:

    You mean, there is a thing called "raise"? When we did a thing a few years back, our first year doing a event called "death by chocolate" my bosses introduced me to the mayor of our city like this..

    Mayor: and your name? (looking at me)

    Chef: Oh he's our jackass.... Jack of all trades, but an ass because he does it all for little pay..

    :roll:

    So, there isn't a thing called "raise" in my area.. Even if in less then 6 months your employee of the month twice.. :roll:

    what a great chef....(if he was a jerk he never would have said that)

    That is one of the aspects that draws me to with anime... camaraderie.

    enjoy the cool boss (99.9% of them arent)

    lol.. He was a great boss.. The new chef is also.. I've only had one boss so far in my life, working still at my first job, where he tried to get me fired.. Saying I was stealing and so forth... I couldn't believe it at all... He's long gone.. lol..


    Yeah, that would be one of the aspects that would draw most people to Anime.. Me... It has a deeper meaning then a person that just "acts"

    Gotta love the camaraderie in a good kitchen. Our kitchen is like that as well. Small place, and we have one black guy that works with us. Nothing but racial jokes all day long. lol. Now if only the owner wasn't a complete twat. lol.

    Cooks are a different breed in most cases. More likely to treat their coworkers like family than most other professions.

    To bad it wasn't food he was referring to.. Lol.. He was a joke anyway.. Scared that I knew to much on how to do his job.. The best example of a "stan"

    Man, I didn't even see that till today..


    yeah, in our kitchen we have both a black guy (he's a Zimbabwean), a Rican, and Mex, and a old retired Army cook.. :roll: We have some stories to tell.. lol..


    I'm with you also on the family thing. We act like a family more then anything else.. Its quite a good feeling.. Not to have a burden of it being a straight forward blood shed of a work place..

    Funny story...

    Ok I am going through my anime collection (all 2 titles of it):laugh: and notice I am missing disk 3 of Ai Yori Aoshi so I spend a day and a half taking my whole room apart and cant find the disk..
    I notice I have a disk from netflix and no sleeve to send it back with (still takes a few more hours of searching before it hits me) I sent my new Ai disk back to netflix in a sleeve for one of their movies... I chat with Netflix and they have no clue what the hell Im talking about and say they never received any extra disks (fricken liars),,,
    Thank god for eBay (tons of Ai Yori there for a couple bucks a disk)

    So the moral of the story is when you get old life sucks:laugh: and you do stupid things with more frequency....

    Ok back to the topic...Hey CS seen Kurau yet? I got tired of waiting for you to say how great it was so I started watching it again myself(great story)

    If anyone knows of any anime similar to Kurau please let me know, I will forever be in ur debt:respect:

    EDIT- Hey CS you asked earlier for romantic anime stuff. I just saw "Whisper of the Heart", its an excellent find.

    goddamnit the manga Billy bat is just to to tooo awesome. i think its a sin to be that awesome. every one should read it.

    i can finally watch anime after 29 strenous days without my beauty's.

    @MK, is ai yori aoshi any good was thinking of watching but the title seems shoujo-ish.
