Lately I have been trying to catch up on a whole lotta anime and manga. I am really glad that I have netflix during this...most times I will rent the first disc (if it is a series) then make a decision on buying the rest if I like it enough. As far as the manga...I usually have been able to find what I wanna preview online, or I go to Borders for a good while, sit in the coffee shop (not sipping coffee cuz I can't have any **sigh**) and read the first one or two in the series. This has been working pretty well for me so far.
What I am curious about at the moment is a show called Paranoia Agent. I have it on my que and it should be arriving tomorrow. Thing is, from what I've read about it...I think I'll like it. And the problem there is that the US released version of the box set is about $100. From recent anime purchases...I think that is quite steep, especially since there are only 13 episodes. Has anyone watched this? Anyone own it? Is it worth owning? Normally I wouldn't care too much about...but like I said up top...I have been catching up on my anime and manga. Translation for that is really: I have been spending a crapload of money on a ton of anime and manga. I need to reel it in a bit I guess...maybe...lol.
I guess I'll always be catching up on this stuff...as well as games, movies, books, etc. It's a never ending cycle! So... who has got some recommendations for me?
