    Manga wise Naruto is good but Anime wise, the fillers are making it shitty again. Personally, i'd prefer an hiatus (1 or 2 months) over so many fillers in a row, unless they make a large filler (several episodes) with a good story / plot: One Piece's G8 arc comes to mind.

    Personally, i like Darker then Black and Ghost in the Shell too but my favorite is, by far, One Piece. Story wise, it's superb: it's rare for anyone to predict what craziness will come next.

    Have you dudes ever seen:

    • a 4 sword wielding giraffe with a long square nose
    • a woman using soap bubbles as weapons: cleaning in more ways then one
    • a wanted poster, badly hand drawn because the photo failed, and then someone appears that has the same face as that wanted poster
    • a perverted skeleton with an afro who's a musician
    • a man using "slow down": Noro Noro beam or, as Luffy calls it, Aho Aho beam to make his attacks
    • a man using his power (unknown as of yet) to cut people up and re-attach them out of order: a talking head while the rest of it's body is in flames several meters away comes to mind
    • Luffy blowing air into his bones in order to make a part of his body the size of a giant and attack
    • sailing a ship underwater thanks to a special bubble coating used on the ship
    • many more
    In the manga:
    They just introduced a Kraken and it's enormous, compared to their ship. What's the first thing Luffy says? Let's tame it (see link).
    http://www.mangafox.com/manga/one_piece/v59/c604/16.html
    One piece was licenced to America but they edited it, badly, or so i'm told. For those wanting to watch One Piece, i recommend watching a subbed Japanese version.

    Many shows, like Hunter X Hunter have simply ended and released a new season once the manga had gotten ahead again.

    My theory is: Naruto and Bleach dont do this because they want to keep the popularity up. Everyone would move onto the next thing if they stopped airing for a time. And im sure the companies making them dont want this to happen.

    Naruto and Bleach still have their own games, so even if the anime/manga takes a break there would hardly be a dent.

    That has a down side. Remember Samurai X? They made filler after filler and that killed the show before it got to the best part. When i read the manga, i was quite surprised @ what was missing from the show. Pity too: it was a good show.

    has anyone here read/watched baki the grappler? if not i recommend you do so. that stuff will put hair on your chest.
    start with the 2 anime series, then read grappler baki, then read baki son of ogre.
    you will never regret it and will wonder why you ever watched SHOUJO(little sissy-boy) anime like bleach and naruto.

    Just a little testament to it's awesomeness.
    One of the characters has a park bench smashed apart on him, a police baton bent from hitting him, shot twice, has a stun grenade go off 1 foot from his face and is beat down by a man strong enough to topple the statue of liberty. All in the span of an hour and he still wins the fight through sheer manliness.

    Anyone watched Macross F: Itsuwari no Utahime yet??
    I just watched it, it was simply epic, i dont think gundamn could compete with that, not visually and not with music...
    Soon next year there will be a sequel...

    False Songstress is 1st half while Farewell of Wings is the 2nd half of the retelling of the whole TV series. I'm still in the process of getting False Songstress.

    Talking about epic, Gundam Unicorn can certainly give any anime a run for it's money. It's basically 80's style with 21st Century implementation and attention to detail, and the music is very epic too. And a lot of people died. And a lot of explosions happened. And a lot of people will die. And a lot of explosions will happen. Again.

    Sales has nothing to do with being epic though, unless you took the idiom quite literally, I was not pointing out to any sales advantages.

    Did Evangelion's second movie start with explosions and thousands dead?

    The state of anime in Japan is just fine. No problems to speak of. One studio was lost, but that was mostly their own fault.

    Why John? He has watch more anime than anyone I know, has over 25 years of anime watching experience, and has/currently works in the industry as a news reporter. It has been his job for well of 15 years to know everything about anime. Thats why. He is also humble enough to not call himself an authority on the subject. He prefers a more informed than most, avid fan as a title.

    Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt's latest ep brings up an interesting situation.

    Transformers, the animated series, is usually considered by "anti-anime" Americans as the bastion of American cartoon might against their fight against "Japanese-loving anime children" which they continually bash and consider as "should be deported to Japan for all the good they bring here."

    Random Curiosity, in it's analysis of the latest P&Sw/G ep which parodied Transformers, delved further on it.

    -The 80s-90s animated series was animated by a Japanese studio.
    -Hasbro is the current holder of the Transformers IP for toys; they got it from a Japanese toy company.

    Family Guy and American Dad are animated by a South Korean studio too.

    Regarding the Macross Frontier movie: re-telling of the (1st half) series with less emphasis on other events and more on the singing, the Vajra and the fighting (obviously). Too much CGI though.
