    So? Just install the player and don't use it. What's a few megs of space? Gotta compromise somewhere, man.

    lmao i just uncompressed the pdvd install.exe all the way down and its compressed size is 76MB but uncompressed its 200MB, thats uncompressing every .cab and .exe contained in there using 7Zip (talking about unnoticeable code modification heh) Man i wish i could find such compression utility for a 700 MB file etc, that took that 200MB file and compressed it down to a 76MB file.

    Hi, i'd like to join as i'm a massive anime fan :D

    Favs:

    Blood+ (amazing storyline)
    Naruto/Naruto shippuuden (prefer Naruto shippuuden, less zany)
    Bleach
    Dokura chan (hilarious)
    Zero no Tsukaima
    Shakugan no Shana
    Spice and wolf
    Vampire Knight
    Full Metal Panic
    Canon
    Inukami!
    Kanokon

    I've watched loads more but those are my favourites, blood+ is my all time favourite, with the rest been equal in my list as they all have very entertaining points.

    The players i use to watch anime are vlc, wmp with ffds and bs.player which does some very nice upscaling on rmvb files.

    I get most my anime from animea.net and anikat.com but i'll download from anywhere else if they give megaupload or rapidshare links. I also buy dvds of anime if they are released in the UK with original voice cast with english subs (no dubbing here tyvm :shadedshu)
    Cold Storm says thanks.

    if you werent aware, tsubasa and xxx are linked - yuuko and co from xxxholic are side characters/plot relevant in tsubasa.

    I swear i even saw a chobit in there.

    Tsubasa has characters from just about every single one of Clamp's animes. Sakura + Syaoran from CCS, Yuuko from xxxHolic, Mokona from xxxHolic and Magical Knights Rayearth, Chii from Chobits, a few of the mini Persecoms from Chobits, someone from X (having not seen X yet, I'm not sure who), and many more. The show is decent, but the Tokyo Revelations 3-part OVA is way better

    She has the same ability of Shiki (Shingetsutan Tsukihime), the eyes of death, 1 hit 1 kill.

    Based on an game, a novel game.

    Anyway, anyone here watch Gintama?

    Just like Kid said Shiki Ryougi(female) has the same abilities as Shiki(male) from Shingetsutan Tsukihime. Shes like the Ultimate Strong Female lead character. Kicking ass in a kimono with a knife.
    A light novel based in an alternate universe from the other Type Moon stories. (Shingetsutan Tsukihime, Fate/Stay Night) They say its actually the prototype to the Shingetsutan Tsukihime visual novel game.

    As far as Gintama I tried to watch it but there are so many eps kinda makes me not wanna watch every single 142+ eps. But I hear good things about it.
    Cold Storm says thanks.

    It doesn't have a story line, and it's a comedy, so you can watch any Eps :D.

    What really makes the Kara no Kyoukai movies is the animation and the music, specifically during the fight scenes. Fluid motion, camera movement, and the music just plain fits. I have not failed to get a chill while watching a fight scene from any of the movies. The story is a bit dark, very solid, though perhaps a bit confusing as it is pretty deep and the movies do not move in chronological order. Be prepared for watching the 5th movie though, as it is a mindfck.
    Cold Storm says thanks.

    I decided to check these movies out and TBH these were probably as bad if not worse than some of the filler episodes to Ghost In The Shell without as much real philosophy. I want to slap the writers with a rust covered mouse pad. Aside from myself hyper-analyzing the style of these writers I was really disappointed with how well it was animated but how cheap the character designs are. They're plain unmemorable and basically featureless people. They would have good expressions in some frames that were usually close ups, but everything else just... ugh everything was far better than the character design it left me detesting everything about the experience. Just really wishing the carpet matched the drapes.

    I suppose I would agree to an extent about the character designs in that they are basic. To me things shined with the fights, in the fluidity of the motion and the "camera movement." I do really have to say that the music is definitely my favorite part of things though.
