    Manga: Abara

    Great graphics, great idea, terribly fucking executed.

    It's about creatures with a bone manipulating ability similar to Kimimaro from Naruto. No character development whatsoever and way too short.

    Manga: Just finished Basilisk. Dope shit. Short and sweet. Crazy ninjustsu and tons of fan service.

    Anime: Finished Big O. Probably my favorite anime ever atm. Started a 24 episode series Blassreiter. Pretty good so far. Sci-fi anime about corpses turned demonic like creatures who can assimilate objects to their bodies and shit.

    Recently finished:

    Soul Eater - they had a great hand-to-hand fight scene the first episode and then never again, only powers fights were good thereafter. Great concept, a bit childish because of the moral message to accept each other to make everyone stronger through "Soul Resonance". I liked it, great to have on in the back as it's simple.

    Elfen Lied - God that was dull. Gratuitous violence and gore, check; Nudity, check; Incest, check; Scientific human experiment conspiracy, check; Yawn, check.

    Rin - Daughters of Mnemosyne - That was great. formulaic episodes, each one opening to RIN having a hangover. A murder mystery through the ages, with its own tale of the circle of life, which is never fully explained. Adult.

    Canaan - I need to watch this again to get more out of it. Generic action/conspiracy anime, but it had a great atmosphere to it, and just felt deep and full of substance.
    ____________________________________________________


    Durarara! or Ergo proxy next. - I'll probably go for Durarara! because Ergo Proxy looks ridiculous, the trailer blows me away.

    I just stream the dubs. These are all just short series. I'm liking the 17+ animes, if only because they aren't centered on little boys or "shounen".

    I can't find that in a dub, so I have to wait until I can focus on it.

    I thought RIN was good too.. some of it was a little out there @ the end tho.. I read Elfin Lied.. i thought it was good.. Soul Eater seems too childish..

    I watched Chrome Shelled Regios.. Really surprised me.. wasnt expecting much and got a great return.. Really wanna see a continuance of it..

    I'm falling behind. I'm a couple episodes into soul eater(i've been waiting for a fight scene like the first one, looks like it's not coming) and rin. decent so far.

    Gankutsuou was an interesting adaptation, but it was nothing that special. i would still recommend it though.

    kozs, are you just focusing on a few short animes at a time? perhaps i'm spread too thin. nh...end up watching too many titles and end up advancing at a snails pace because of that.

    Last couple new series' that i've started...don't think i've mentioned them yet.

    started the first disc of Black Butler...unless the remaining eps on this disc pick up significantly, i don't think i'm going to continue this one.

    Kaze No Yojimbo - good...could be very good if it ends well.

    Heat guy J- decent/good...interesting enough, though i hate when they adopt italian mafia style syndicates...niggas have yahuzas and a deep jap cultural background pool to work from, stick to that.

    Tsukikage Ran - Best anime that i've started...older mid-late 90's, but it's well done. observe [​IMG]

    Eden of the East - short and very good. not done with it but i think it's just a 2-3 disc series.

    baki the grappler - good fighing anime, kind of cliche and it's no hajime no ippo, but it's good.
