    hahaha that's about the only way you CAN look at it :)

    I have a hard time finding THAT much anime I like :( Most of the stuff I really enjoy is gone after 35shows or so... Really loved Chrono Crusade, AH! My Goddess, Gunslinger Girls... but they would have been kinda hard to keep going with, considering the direction the developers wanted. but then again, I think FMA got really tired after 20-30 shows, too...Oh wel. Isn't there an anime out there that just keeps going, but is always fresh??!!!?!?!


    *sigh* too much holiday stress

    For anyone who has questions about Evangelion I knew of an AMV authored several years ago that does a fantastic job at explaining things to the timeless tune of Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody.

    For the rest of you who need quality facts written by the hand that fed you the series, this is the Red Cross Booklet translated into English:

    I love your post my brother! I love them! :toast:

    Hellboy anime is good. I have to give them props for the art style. To me, it's good.

    Tape isn't practical in the home, and it would take around 800 single layer DVD's to back up my entire collection of anime, music and movies. Where are those promised 1TB optical or holo discs when you need them? lol.

    I've watched the first like, 4 eps of Darker Than Black. Certainly looked promising. However, I've heard the ending was a real letdown

    Pumpkin scissors was good but you're better off just reading the manga as the anime is only 24 eps and doesnt continue on from there with another season.

    If you like japanese historical anime check out Shugiri produced by MADHOUSE super gory and insane animation.

    While surfing on an Asian website, I found these pictures.

    Guess what? According to that website, this is a dude.
    YES, D-U-D-E!

    He cosplay of some anime character, but I'm not sure which one.

    You can check out more pics here:

    The website server is not locate on US or EU, so, expect it to load abit slow.

    By the time you're done burning and trying to find a place to store 800 DVDs, you were better off buying a bunch of hard drives to copy the data to, then put in storage.

    I'd rather risk the data than burn 800 DVD's, and tape drives suck. Have you ever had the "pleasure" of using tape?

    Blu ray disks will be a big help, once they get cheaper. a 25GB single layer disk can take 24 HD (1.1GB) TV episodes, for example. Thats a whole season of 720P TV shows on one disk. Mmmm. (even more for anime, due to shorter ep lengths)

    Who cares if the ending wasnt epic. the show itself was great, and more than worth watching. I dont understand how people can not watch a show for a bad ending, when they could just watch the show and enjoy it up until the moment it turns crap. look at evangelion - worst ending ever. so bad, they had to F*ck it up 3 more times, yet everyone loves the show. the SHOW, not the ending!.

    And that, is where LAN's come in. you let people copy your collection, so if your drives die you can simply copy it back next LAN!

    Yeah seriously would you want to Burn OVER 300 anime titles. Some series more then 26 eps, if encoded in h264 ea. file avg of 175-300+mb. Then labeling every single disc what show and which eps are on them
    2TB worth of anime would take about 445 single layer DVDs

    I dont want to sort through that huge stack I think Ill take the risk of a drive failure and stick to my my 3 hdd

    i think i need about 250 DVD's to back my data up. it takes about 12 minutes to burn each DVD, so that'd be... about 2 to 2 1/2 days of doing nothing but burn DVD's. no thanks.

    I know someone who burns all of his off, and its not going well. 2 years on, and his disks are starting to corrupt and go bad, despite the fact he's had them locked away in a sealed cabinet. Writable media like CD and DVD were never designed for long term storage - the ink used simply deteriorates over time.

    haha after the first ending of Evangelion that was Televised Director Hideaki Anno got so many Death threat letters
    They actually showed some of them flashing on the screen at the beginning on the alternate DVD ending.

    To me, if the art style is good, and the story makes me keep going for 24mins, that's all I care about. Nothing else..

    As for backing up your stuff.. Burning a DVD will all ways corrupt due to the way it's was made.. They say there is about 3 year hold on dvd's any more.. Even professional music, has about 10 years before it starts to do it. That's even having them in a vacuum sealed area.. The protection wears off..
    LAN is probably the best. You got other fellow anime heads that won't jib you off anything that you had or want.

    If My collection would of gone bye bye, which it has before when i sold it, that stuff happens.. No use crying over spilled milk!
