Kimi n-..... dang. That's the only shoujo I've seen... I hear Nodame Cantabile is good though.

Why don't you watch Kaichou Wa Maid Sama? It is a shoujo according to the sites although I disagree, I think it is more a romance.

Varies. Over the summer I watched a lot more anime and didn't play games much at all, now I'm back at college and playing more games than watching anime.

Well my avatar is from my favorite game of all time so...

#414 Posted by Sphire (2070 posts) -

Hmm, I've been gaming for quite some time, while I've only properly been watching anime for about 5-6 years. It's a tough call as to which I do more, since I tend to focus on one when I'm really enjoying it. With limited free time, that's how it is. I tend to always have something to watch though (even if it ain't great), while sometimes I find myself wanting in the games department. Plus it's much easier to start/stop watching shows anytime, whereas to play games, I usually have to make sure I've got a few hours free.

As for which I prefer, well, I prefer my fav anime shows over most games I've played, but my fav games slightly win out overall. It's a good mix-up though.

Anyway, is no one else watching Katanagatari? Just got done watching ep 11, and man, it's another agonizing wait for the last ep.

Fully agree! I love how the art style has developed since th first season.

*Sigh*

I've sworn off manga/anime for a week so I can get school work done.

One day in and I'm suffering....:cry:

Hello everyone! I'm here cause I decided to abandon this same thread that I made on GameSpot AU - not enough anime people there except Sphire and me being the active ones. Now I shall sit and wait patiently till the next episode of Ika Musume comes out.

The manga is still going? Shows what I know. The animes were mediocre at best, had some moments but it was dull even as far as fan service goes.

On a side note my anime folder has finally reached over 300GB with 54 series in total.

Also waiting for new Yosuga No Sora (NAO ARC YEYEYEYEYEYE) and other shows.

Give the manga a try. WAY better story and doesn't go as much overboard on the fan service as the anime, especially season 2.

Hey bro!

Nice work - I recently had to up my anime server to 2TB cause I was fast running out of space.

Note to self - have to watch Tantei Milky Opera Holmes later on.

#428 Posted by xWoW_Rougex (2755 posts) -

Damn guys, you know you can delete files from your PC right? :P There's no need to keep every anime file you got!!!

That reminds me, I need to start transfering more files into my anime drive. Sometimes I get lazy and just delete them (gasp! the horror :P), but with good ones, gotta keep those. My puny 250gb on my laptop just can't keep up!

Also, I too am patiently waiting on Ika Musume. Was sceptical at first, but it's an awesome fun watch.

you are watching fma brotherhood too?

just finished that last night, pretty awesome. I got to a point were I couldn't stop watching.

FMAB was definitely better than FMA I thought. It was good, the only problem for me was that I couldn't find myself caring that much about Ed or Al, even though I really liked a lot of the other characters (esp. Roy Mustang).

Agreed. It was hard to sympathize, especially with Al, for me (maybe because he is just a giant suit of armor? may be discriminatory, but I can't help it)

And while I got the point of getting Al's original body back, never really got why Ed wanted his limbs back so badly, he depended on them for fighting and automail arm = badass.

But even then I really loved everything else about the series.

You watched the original? Is there any point in watching that now if I watched Brotherhood?

The original is ok and you should watch it since it's like a whole different story.

No point to watching the original if you watched Brotherhood. Brotherhood is better and the part where the original outpaces the manga is very meh.

And yeah, I also wondered why Ed was so keen on getting his limbs back. His automail was pretty awesome.

I have been wondering in watching the other FMA but after reading the other posts I decided not to waste my time of it. Brotherhood is the way to go. Talking about Brotherhood, I hate Youtube, they erased my AMV of FMAB.

you are all pros downloading your shows on HD.... I stream 99% of my stuff (I'm a noob)

I usually have no trouble finding anything and downloading is only used as a last resource.... but of course with streaming you usually have to sacrifice quality.

When i first starting watching anime i used to watch naruto and bleach on stream, very low detail and it werent that enjoyable, but when i started watching all my anime on download it became more fun to watch. for me video quality = anime quality.

Was fine with Xvid encodes in the past - now I aim for 720p mkv as a minimum. I also try to have a whole series done by one subbing group for consistency as well.
