Right now I'm just watching Chuunibyou, Tonari no Kaibutsu-Kun, and Hidamari Sketch. Might Check out Robotics;Notes eventually, since I did enjoy Steins;gate.

Lots of anime talk here, but if you want some real good manga here are my suggestions:


Vinlandsaga - Historical manga set in the High Middle Ages, great, amazing deep story about a young Viking warrior out for revenge. The story is told in the backdrop of a war, so there is lots of gore, blood/violence and such. but the character development, dialogue, art and realism is amazing.

Historie is also a historical manga, it follows the journey of a kid in Antiquity, who grows up in the 4th century BC and becomes involved with Alexander the Great. Graphics arent as polished as Vinland saga but the story is great and gets you into the manga real fast. If you like history you should try these last 2 mangas

Liar Game is a psychological manga, it is about this naive-ass girl who gets involved in this competition of wits; money is involved. Real mind****, each game is very well thought out and just when you think someone wins the game some new twist comes outo f left field.

Berserk is classic seinen, if you want to appreciate good old seinen with great art, fight scenes, etc. try it out.

There are many more but these would be my 1st suggestions. The main reason why I love this type of manga is that it isn't geared towards kiddies, where the main characters are like Goku in DBZ and their power level goes up by 500x and they face bigger and badder villains every 50-100 episodes yet they somehow still manage to beat them. oh yea and somehow through all that they are 100% pure of heart and extremely good and they fight for their friends and try their hardest to never kill and all that blah blah blah. The characters are a lot more realistic, they have flaws, and sometimes they dont get what they want.

I've heard mixed reviews about Robotics;Notes. I'm currently watching Steins;Gate, and I'm really enjoying it. The dub Funimation did was superb. Once I'm done with Steins I might check out R;N.

In Chu2, shit got real. Poor poor Rikka

Rozen Maiden Manga Gets More Anime

Quote:
Shueisha's Young Jump magazine is announcing that more of the anime adaptation of Peach-Pit's Rozen Maiden manga has been green-lit.

Peach-Pit launched Rozen Maiden in Gentosha's Monthly Comic Birz magazine in 2003 before switching to Shueisha's Young Jump magazine in 2008. It inspired two 12-episode television anime adaptations, Rozen Maiden and Rozen Maiden - Träumend, the two-episode prequel, Rozen Maiden: Ouvertüre in 2006, and a short special, Rozen Maiden: Detective Kun-Kun.

Geneon Entertainment licensed the original series and Rozen Maiden - Träumend for release in North America in 2007.

FUNimation Entertainment then signed a deal with Geneon Entertainment in 2008 to distribute both Rozen Maiden and Rozen Maiden - Träumend in 2008. Sentai Filmworks picked up and released Rozen Maiden, Rozen Maiden - Träumend, and Rozen Maiden: Ouvertüre last year.

Can not wait for more Desu.

Watching BTOOM, Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun, Zetsuen no Tempest, and Psycho Pass. This is probably the best assortment of shows out since I've had a crunchyroll sub (about 4 seasons now).

Definitely, this is one of the higher quality seasons we've had in recent memory. I'm also watching Sietokai no Ichizon Lv. 2, To Love Ru Darkness, and Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo ne.

I've heard good things about both Psycho Pass and Tempest.

Bit more info.
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/inte...o-market-anime

Quote:
The Japanese anime channel Animax posted a synopsis for Kyoto Animation's new anime project, Tamako Market, this week.

Tamako is a mochi-loving high-school freshman whose family runs a mochi (rice cake) shop in a certain town's shopping district. She enjoys her high school life with her friends Midori and Kanna in the badminton club. She also helps out at her family's shop and develops new mochi.

She is childhood friends with Mochikura, the son of the neighboring rival mochi shop, but when their fathers meet, they fight like cats and dogs. On Tamako's birthday on New Year's Eve, Mochikura is determined to hand her a birthday present that he had not been able to in past years. Then, suddenly, a splendid bird (parrot) appears in the shopping district, and a year like no previous one is about to begin.

Naoko Yamada (K-ON!) is directing, and Reiko Yoshida (K-ON!, Bakuman.) is in charge of the series scripts. Another K-ON! veteran, Yukiko Horiguchi (Lucky Star), is designing the characters.

The new anime will run on the Tokyo MX TV, Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, TV Aichi, and BS11 Digital channels. It will begin broadcasting in Japan next January.

The January issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Newtype magazine will run an interview with Yamada on December 10.

Blue Exorcist is the shit. One of the best anime shows I've ever seen. Deadman Wonderland was alright, nowhere near as good as E7. I tried to watch Tiger and Bunny a while ago but I couldn't get into it. I might try it again soon.

It's been almost 2 years since Gainax ruined Christmas, how naive I was to think P&S would ever get another season.
