    Only in the official site i suppose, the anime is an original, so there is no external material to relate too...

    Speaking of enma, yesterday i watched ep 1 of the 1973 original, it was horrible, but considering its age its normal...

    Ao no Exorcist is good, but still a bit meh. Reminds me of Ichiban Ushiro no Daimou actually, especially with the new setting which is Holy/True Cross Academy or something.

    Today i have finally finished watching Aria the origination, i was in fact afraid this time would come, after growing so accustomed to its world, the characters and its people, it is truly sad to see it depart...
    I have forgotten the last time i felt like this about an anime, rarely anime made light shine over my dark hearth like Aria did...

    But in the end despite being truly sad, above all i fell happy for having watching it and for ending on a perfect note with a happy end, i couldn't be more satisfying, unless Aria the Origination would continue for more 13 episodes...

    A masterpiece raised to a favorite status...

    That's how I feel about Kaiba, although the ending was a little jarring.

    Here's a link to the opening: http://youtu.be/PpfAHHMQIcE

    I have come to a solution for my newly found Aria deprivation:
    First i will re-watch ep 5 because i forgot to watch ep 5.5 of Aria the Origination and the ep 5.5 obviously, then i have 7 picture dramas to watch fro Aria the Origination and then start all over from Aria the animation which i have watched only 6 years ago, im sure it will be rewarding to do so, watching 54 episodes allover again...
    Things will be busy for a while...

    So my girlfriend and I just watched Elfen Lied in one sitting last night and we loved it. It was a little too much blood for her taste but I'm ok with it. She loved the story and character development as did I. I really wish they finish the anime because the manga is a considerable amount longer...

    Would anyone recommend watching new dominion tank police,i love my classic manga/anime shows. I've seen the trailer for it when i watched Legend of 4 Kings/Dragon Kings on VHS and the opening theme and trailer caught my interest several years ago.

    Never got to watch dominion, but watched TANK S.W.A.T. 01 which is a spinoff of the manga...

    So after watching Aria the origination, i had decided it was time to revisit the entire series again, i just couldn't go without aria and thats what i decided to do...
    So the character design is still awesome only the backgrounds seems a little more simpler than the 3 year older sequel, still very enjoyable, all the charm is there, it is actually fun do rediscover the characters early days and the story, even after finishing watching it...

    Also here's a Madoka Bonus, courtesy of Kurogane http://kurogane.animeblogger.net/2011/04/28/madoka-blu-ray-vol-1-4-koma/#comments, its a 4-koma manga panel...

    I have to say the 1st anime i watched with subtitles probably Gundam Seed.
    But the 1st anime i have seen is probably either...Legend of 4 kings,Tenchi Muyo,Dangioh,Yamato Takeru.

    Yeah i have Legend of 4 kings when i was 5-7 years old and the show is rated 12-15 lol.

    On tv??
    Very hard to say what was first, but before i knew what anime was, i was watching stories like Tom Sawyer, heidi and marco, anne of green gables and maybe other's that i cant be sure i watched but only vaguely remember something, this on very early 90's, i cant remember if i used to watch any in the late 80's, my memory starts to fail me...

    The first anime that really left an impression on me, was Evangelion when it aired on 96 around here, i dont remenber anything having an impact before that, but i remenber tenchi muyo following after Evangelion replacing it...

    It was probably around 99 or 2000 i started watching fansubs...

    Chobits. That's not the first anime I ever watched though. It's just the first with subtitles.

    The first anime I saw was either Escaflowne or Cowboy Bebop (both dubbed).
    I started watching subbed anime around mid 2008. The first being Naruto.

    Wow you got long way to go if you only watch the latest "trended" anime.

    So anyways who can recognise this quote "i can bench press 150kg and i am a black belt karate instructor"

    You're not any older than him as an anime watcher when you said that.

    I wasn't meant to sound rude,which wasn't my attention.
    If i did i apologise,i was just saying starting off watching anime in 2000s like Deathnote is cool but i don't know why i'm not very fond of the current anime series as none of them really interest me as much as anime from late 1980s onwards.

    Thats because you probably missed the greatest hits and probably watched what was more mainstream\popular...
