    Bd's are dirty cheap these days, you can get great prices from amazon for those movies...

    Watch Gosick, Shiki, beast player erin, Moribito - Guardian of the Spirit, durarara and baccano...

    These should hold your interest for a while, they are absolutely fantastic...

    Can't wait for the new Hunter X Hunter series this fall.
    A lot of great chars in the ant arc imo, plus some epic fights.
    The original series and first ova are great, wasn't a fan of the greed island arc tho.
    razaron says thanks.

    Buying is cool, but I mainly buy just to support and know I have a physical copy tucked away unopened, but seriously who's gonna spend the hours ripping and encoding so you can play it on a htpc when theirs freedom fighter who have already done the work for you. And don't give me that digital copy bs HD4LIFE Son!

    I buy the stuff I like, even if I never watch the actual discs in some cases.

    F**k yeah.:rockout:
    Hopefully they'll do they the fight between the old man and cell lookalike justice. That "don't underestimate humans" moment was jizz worthy.

    Yeah, that's what I've done with GITS movies.. All un-open. I'm going to be buying another set of FF7AC just so it's wrapped as well.. Do it for the support. Just wish Kenshin boxes weren't so damn high in price.

    Wow. There's so much angsty emotional BS in Zeta Gundam. Does this trend continue into the other series or does it stop with Zeta Gundam?

    @djisas, you found Shiki scary?

    No, i found it eerie and fantastic, i usually would watch it late at night lights out with headphones for a better experience, the music is simply fantastic...

    It started a lil good then it was getting kind of good. Suddenly, it got suck halfway... Shiki i mean.

    To be more precise, when Megumi started appearing and showing emotions in front of Yuuki, everything fell apart. No more thrills and the mystery seem to be lost...

    Hitsuji no Uta gave me more thrill then this anime... and it's such a short story.


    My opinon is bias because i haven't watched all the EPs yet...

    Duh. Of course there would be no "thrills" and "mystery" feel by then. The cat's out of the bag around that part of the series.

    Then there would be skull-crushing, surguical-killing, car-smashing pandemonium next.

    You seriously have no idea of what happens in the second half, more thrills than you bargained for...

    Hitsuji no uta is seriously good actually, "The Lament of The Lamb"
    The Ebna kun OVA is also quite good of an horror anime, another great one would be Ghost Hunt a more supernatural suspense\mystery story with serious thrills too, very good horror...

    Edit: just watched break blade last movie...
    In the end i still think action is to rudimentary, sloppy and slow, last battle somewhat disappointing of all sorts of weapons that could have been created, they come with probably the shittiest they could and its not like the opponent put much of a fight besides soaking in some punches, and the "elites" easily trashing the "normal" units like they shooting birds, in the end it was huge mess and most of the time i was left wondering who is who in the middle of the mess, they all look the same to me...

    Throw in an eva with just a knife or barehanded and watch it trash them armies of slow moving mechs with bird hunting pressure guns...
    I think the glasses guy last movie was more exciting to watch, the precision with which he fought and just the necessary force...

    Not that im disappointed but could've be better...
