    Way overdue for more Air gear!
    Guess I need to start reading the manga again to get caught up.

    The ova seems a little more serious than the original anime.. or the characters grew up a bit since I last read the manga.
    Where's the old Ikki that would just pull his pants down and take a crap while people were talking to him.

    The Air Gear Manga got really strange around the time Tool Tool Tool or whatever they were called entered the plot.

    It started great, Then it walked the path of evangelion.

    Oh I knew about that months ago. It was mentioned on Sankaku Complex. But as I said, The manga got weird and so I wasnt overly interested in the OVA.

    From what im hearing though its actually good.

    Nope, it's just a misunderstanding. What they said is that roughly: they would love to make another OVA for BRS and would be eager to do it if it were to be made official.

    Yeah 2 new OAD's!!
    Check my article on the orb: http://www.animeorb.info/plugins/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?17108

    D.Gray man, a great shounen packed with unique characters and action...
    Soul eater, likewise, very original (remember that bleach arc where the zanpaktou gained life??) soul eater weapons are always like that...
    You Can try basquash too, basketball plus mecha= WIN, actually i dont like basket at all but really liked the anime...
    Another cool shounen, The Law of Ueki, it takes recycling to a new extreme, some really unique and original powers...

    Me bought the limited edition BD+DVD straight from Japan, its still on pré-order and will only be released on the 17th of december, in some places its already sold out...

    I liked Kekaishi, The manga is also still ongoing.

    The Law of Ueki, mentioned above , has a sequel (manga only) called Law of Ueki Plus which is a new story arc. I'd love to see anime adaptions of these...

    Hmm maybe its just the eng dub on AS that makes Fighting with box's show so unappealing to me.
    Does it at least have a decent plot ?

    :roll: dub hater!!!

    I've watched a bit of Kekkaishi and I like it a lot. You gotta get threw the first 10 or so episodes before it really gets going on how it is...

    lol i hate dubs i just happened to see it on tv one night an was like :ohwell:
    " Fighting with magic boxes, Really ?"

    Oh well i ll have to check it out anyway i trust TPU /a/ :laugh:

    The only ok dub is the a fore mentioned GITS:SAC i still prefer the jpn voices but there are parts in that show that i just didn't understand, likely do to poor translation.

    That has nothing to do with translation. GITS is just complicated. I would be happy to explain anything you may have missed.
