    OMG:respect: I saw Crest of the Stars last night and it totally made me lose track of time (almost impossible for me to do). I didnt move from that spot till I had seen all 13eps(Crest). It went by so fast I was incredibly sad it was over..

    Than today while I was searching for who recommended it in the first place I saw the "Banner" in ur post and realized there is a "Banner of the Stars" and even a Banner2 and 3 and im honestly more excited than if I had just hit the lotto.

    To watch the characters develop was an amazing experience for me.

    Spectacular anime if character study is ur thing.

    LOL.. I just found some reviews and apparently im not alone
    (its so cool to find people with similar likes)
    http://www.themanime.org/viewreview.php?id=416

    Im thinking to those under 25 or so this may seem a bit slow, to the kids there is action but it wont be enough.

    But while I watched it I was focused on it and it alone, I didnt get food/snacks, drinks or anything till it was over and I realized it was 6:38am...(thank God I am my own boss)
    I cant do the spoiler thing (im a bit incompetent) so I will shut up (I want to go on and on and on)

    one funny thing is when this started I almost turned it off. It begins with a battle in a strange language I had never heard before. I remember thinking what the hell am I wasting my time watching this (I missed the little box that said "Note: during this scene the characters are speaking Baronh, the Abh language. No translation")
    it turns out the kids father is the president and gives up the whole planet without a fight and than runs away
    I remember thinking WTF?

    Hehe :roll:

    If anyone else keeps up with Manga versions:

    Bleach latest episode is a real surprise, must read!
    Has Aizen finally been defeated?

    Naruto latest episode concludes the most recent fight
    Sasuke defeats Danzou and now moves onto Konoha. Also what the hell is Sakura thinking?

    I don't keep up with Bleach or Naruto. I like them not.

    Thanks for reminding me. I do need to get Saint Young Men, the new manga for Gantz, and possible Tenjo Tenge.

    Just recently started with the Gantz manga, so far seems even more awesome than the anime.

    Anime tends to follow quite true to the manga on both, but they're seriously behind atm. Naruto is closer, but then that's cos Bleach is 70% fillers nowadays.

    Can't stand the fillers, it's what made me follow the manga instead. Naruto I'm gonna pick up again cos it's out of fillers IIRC. Can someone let me know when Bleach isn't in filler?

    My word! You see.. this seemingly endless quest to stuffing Bleach with fillers kills me a little inside. It was OK when I first got into anime. But now that I am used to watching entire seasons of stuff sans fillers I just can't cope with poor stories and frustrating waits for anything of interest.

    I have enjoyed this last filler but it has been so long I completely forgot what the main story was(I think Mussels even reminded me a couple of months back), and when Ichigos friends showed up a couple eps ago to me they didnt matter at all.

    With all the other very good anime it is asking a bit much from the creators for all of us to endure this.(but I guess since I have seen 256eps so far I feel a bit "invested" so I will stick it out.

    Thank god in the mean time for all the really good other stuff.

    Indeed. I really hope something of epic proportions come up this year. A gurren lagann, higashi no eden or dennou coil type of game changer.

    they even had an apology when the arc 'ended' asking the fans to bear with them through the ongoing filler.
