    It's like watching Vision of Escaflowne and then watching the Escaflowne movie.
    Some parts are the same but its different.
    The holy grail thing is the background plot while the main focus is on Tohsaka Rin and Shirou.
    It uses the same scenes (+ some new 1s) from the series to tell a somewhat alternative story while having the main plot the same.

    the manga, "I am a hero" is awesome. it started of as highly entertaining slice of life (albeit more serious) but by the end of the first volume i was left left in awe. it's only got 1 volume scanlated so far.
    out of the current season "MM!", "hyakka ryouran: samurai girls" and "ore no imouto ga konnani kawaii wake ga nai" look to be good so far, so far being 1 episode. the second series to "to aru majutsu no index" also starts on the 8th, if that interests you.

    I'm a big anime fan. Namely Negima, Gunslinger Girl, Elfen Lied and Azumanga Daioh. I'm pretty much in love with Asuna Kagurazaka and have a lot of memorabilia (wall hangings, figures, companion books, a mousepad). I don't know exactly why i like it, it's just awesome.

    So do I qualify for membership? :p

    Just took a look at those and they seem pretty interesting. Also i actually enjoyed watching Toaru Majutsu no index and will watch the 2nd season as well. I didnt know when the 2nd season started so thanks for the heads up.

    I'm just getting into this whole anime thing. My favorite series' so far were Cowboy Bebop and Devil May Cry. I guess I like the whole action sci-fi thing.

    Right now I am working my way through Elfen Lied, and I have to say it is really screwed up. Lots of gore and nudity, and combined to great effect. Nothing better than seeing nude women running around killing people amirite?

    Indeed. Elfen Lied is probably my second favourite, after Negima.

    From: Shinryaku! Ika Musume :p

    Recommendations from the new anime this season:
    Shinryaku! Ika Musume (Squid Girl)
    MM!
    Star Driver: Kagayaki no Takuto
    Hyakka Ryouran: Samurai Girls
    Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai (The World God Only Knows)
    Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai (My Little Sister Can't Be This Cute)
    Motto To LOVE-Ru
    Sora no Otoshimono: Forte
    Otome Youkai Zakuro
    Yosuga no Sora

    And if you want to f**k your mind up sideways, or see American-like animation with mature Japanese themes, Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt (and the MAHOU SHOUJO transformation scene was great, and the ED was good too).

    honestly im actually pretty new too. Not to sound like a complete D-Bag but i used to hate stuff like this. I used to give my friends shit all the time for watching anime. then i was woken up at like 1:30am feel asleep on the couch with my laptop looked at the TV and some anime was on. I ended up watching the episode and when i was done I was like WTF? that wasnt for kids AT ALL. i mean sure it had its immature moments but the underlying theme etc was adult. been trying new things for months now going from one to another as I finish them.

    Been 4 days away and only yesterday started to re-organize things, had like 10GB of anime to download but my fuckin net was caped to 90KB/s, dunno what happened so i left the pc to finish things up trough the night, i think it fixed now, but i dont have much ro download yet...

    Watched bleach 291, these past couple episodes were pretty crappy with crappy characters like tousen but its over now and ichigo's back...

    Ore no imouto, kirino's more perverted than even I, and thats something, the anime seems to be pretty good...

    Tamayura ep 2 - If you like photography or just looking for something relaxing and diferent from the usual moeblob crop, then look no further...

    Star driver, new mecha anime from studio bones (bebop, xamd, etc...), first episode was quite good, high quality, refreshing character designs and mecha designs...

    Yosuga no sora, its all about incest and hot high schoolers and they wont skip on nudity either, it had 2 endings and some fun extras in the episode...

    I don't think Jun Fukuyama would be a better VA. Apparently Keima looks VERY YOUNG in the manga. The anime already made him "older". Jun as Lelouch would make him even more "older".

    Besides, Jun's quite busy already. Him and Saori Hayami are in A LOT of the new anime. They're together in MM!, and Jun still have Legend of Legendary Heroes and Nurarihyon no Mago continuing.

    panty, stocking and garter belt is brilliant. its music is brilliant. its animation is brilliant. it's like dead leaves only more (American) cartoonish.
    in the manga keima's actually very cool and calculative (in an otaku way).

    The music was fantastic in that! I just watched it! The animation style was not my thing. There was that one scene above where it was ok, but otherwise, meh.

    Angel beast was good, but to me, I loved watching Getbackers. The series was worth the watch and funny at times to watch. Plus has characters that just stick out at ya.
