    Hurry up? :laugh:

    The second episode's supposedly this Fall, and at that rate the 6-episode OVAs would finish in 2012. :roll:

    An animator for the series tweeted that "I don't really know when it will show" :roll:

    Depends on how many roofies he slips you, and whether or not Dan is invited. I'm pretty sure Dan can change what you "feel inside". :D

    Same here. Just didn't hook me in. It's on the back burner of shows to watch when bored.

    Been sick of the shit plot lines for ages now. They are exactly the reason you won't see me watching any ongoing anime at all. It's like the fucking soap operas of anime. You can skip watching for a couple seasons in a row, watch a couple eps, and know exactly what's going on or going to happen. They are all stupid.

    Zone. lol.

    A clear msg for otaku only, the rest of the mortals wont get the msg...

    Not really, i dont read the bleach manga, so i dont know what follows next, and bleach has been pretty good since they returned to the main battles...
    Thats the only way they have to extend an anime for unlimited time, it sells...

    half the problem with bleach (and naruto, and most long running anime) is the filler. they throw in story arcs all over the plaec that follow the original scheme (as you said, lose, train, win) but without anything NEW happening. no one dies, no one gets new powers, nothing gets revealed or remains after the filler is ended.

    if you watch bleach without the filler (its almost half filler) it flows so much better and makes more sense.

    Yeah, Sol's shirt is only for those who know it..

    To me, I never really cared for the manga, I do like manga just not my thing. So with that, yeah, Bleach and others are like the formula of DBZ. You have to start somewhere.. What got me pissy about DBZ is the factor of all the "remakes" just a "hit of color" made them throw out the series again.. Do I love DBZ, yes, just not the money hungry people up above.

    Roofies? I never quite understood why they called them roofies.. They but you on the floor more then they put you on the roof.. Why can't they just call them floories?

    It is possible to have a long running anime with filler that doesnt suck. One Peice has been going for over 10 years now and its STILL the #1 most popular anime in japan.

    How many Filler seasons has it had? Ill let you all google that yourselves.

    One Piece, and Fairy Tail is turning out to be that too. Heck comparisons between the two are usually made.

    Comparisons between One Peice and Fairy Tale have been made since Fairy Tales Pilot was first released (and I was lucky enough to see it, back then).

    The Drawing styles are VERY Similar:

    (not a great example you need to read the manga's)

    And to frank. I never liked Fairy Tale at all. I gave it a chance, and I new it would be another BIG anime. But there is not a single thing original about its plot or style.

    Not really "very" similar. I liked visually Fairy Tail and Groove Adventure Rave before that (one of the first anime that was dubbed properly locally, but I'm not able to watch it because of the 3pm airing times) over One Piece. And arguably the soundtrack is better with Fairy Tail, although Bump of Chicken's Sailing Day (for the movie) was great, and I usually play it in Guitar Freaks (albeit it's one of the few "full songs" in there, counting as 2 selections when you play).

    Haven't really liked One Piece hentai doujins, usually Nami getting gang raped or tentacles. Well actually just very long arms. lol

    Come on DJ, lets both start it! I watched it before, till about episode 130.. then it just got lost.. I think it's best to restart it..

    I do like fairy Tail since it does remind me of One Piece.

    Hey, who wants to start "Cold Case"? Isn't that over 500 episodes now? I know you want to DJ.. :roll:

    Just got done with Episode 252 on Bleach. Gotta watch more tonight.. Maybe.. DJ's going to beat me again this week with FMA.. Stuck at work sucks! Plus gave away my laptop so I couldn't bring it to grab it.. :cry:

    Im up to date on bleach and now a day earlier...
    No big anime tx...
    I find it hard to watch small ones...
    Im the ongoing anime man and can watch over 10 anime at the same time, every season i watch a minimum of 80% of all anime...
    But i did re-watch Gunslinger dvd rips last week and really loved watching it again, but i got brand new BD-rips to watch it a third time and the ill teatrino next to it...
    Now i started to watch Moke, Mark too is watching it and i think im going to go get Mononoke, i didnt watch it when it aired but it seems its good...
