    I've not really read more than maybe one or two mangas so far, but I have multiple shelves full of anime dvd and that is just the little part that I could manage to buy.
    Can't relate to you tatsu, manga never really were much fun to me. When reading books I prefer books with 99% text, so I did read for example some light novels of anime that ended way too early (can't wait for the next spice and wolf book).
    Manga have some text and some quick drawings. Either all text or all pretty drawings in animated form. I just don't get warm with the middle usually.

    Considering Brotherhood is 64 episodes long it can "out-stay it's welcome" due to sheer length but I do feel that if it happens it's strictly due to the length as opposed to poor pacing/story or other issues like that.

    Cowboy bebop?

    One piece is something i took a look at but don't know what to think.

    I'm currently reading the Naruto manga. it's weird, i like the manga for being quite to-the point, yet at many times it feels like it's moving a bit too fast. And the anime does it's best to fill those gaps in the story (which it often does very well) and yet at times feels too drawn-out. Also, the Manga is much more Naruto-centric whereas the Anime does it's best to explore the side-characters too.

    I'm not sure if this counts but.. is Avatar: The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra anime? does it belong here? cause both are awesome.

    avatar is rather considered animated series than anime (and i sure as heck don't want to say cartoon)
    but who cares i don't see any damage done mentioning it ... because yes it is that good ...


    @KNight now 64 episodes doesn't sound like THAT much considering how many naruto dbz and one piece have .. guess i'll check it out ...

    EDIT : oh wait.... fair warning: it's really fuckked up. 18 or over only and even then. I wouldn't recommend it unless you are morally tough. this will take a toll on you.

    I've been a SUPER weeaboo kick lately, if we want the thread to die I can not post about it. Otherwise I can probably eke out a couple pages of discussion just from what I've seen/read in the last couple weeks.

    EDIT
    I just polished off Berserk so I'm looking for something new.

    I absolutely HATE rape though. The few series I enjoy with it in had to be insanely good to make up for having rape included. Is it rapey?

    well it doesn't show any but sometimes it's implied it's gonna go down that road.

    like I said it's fuckked.

    How on earth did that take you seven hours? Did you manually sift through the thing with Yuri?

    I played it with a group of like 6 people or so, and we read out a lot of the dialogue.
