I have never seen harry potter or love hine what are they about? I thought black lagoon was one of the most underrated animes that came out last year (maybe due to death notes' popularity)


Harry Potter is the kid who goes to Hogwart's the wizard schools in those movies.

Love Hina is a "Harem Manga" about a (bad) student who gets the job of being the Super for a all-girl boarding house.

Black lagoon is a good series and the graphics are pretty tight.

f*ck bro, I love this show.  Revy has replaced Motoko Kusanagi as my anime girlfriend. Well, no yeah.  She did...  ;D

I picked up the next avengers DVD yesterday...it was alright nothing spectacular IMHO I didn't like the way the BPs kid was portrayed. I also dusted off some of my old animes Escaflowne, and WXIII patlabor the movie 3. The latest issue of WIZARD magazine stated that the Death Note live action movie would be released on DVD later this month but no date was offered

I picked it up, but I haven't watched it yet.  That glowing review makes me want to return it and wait for it on Cartoon Network or something.

I couldn't find the box set for Black Lagoon.

So I bought the box sex for Cowboy Bebop.

I have to watch out. If I start feeding my Anime habit it will get ugly for my wallet. ;D

Hey...I just opened the Next Avengers DVD and the Hulk vs. Thor and Hulk vs. Wolverine trailers were worth the price of admission!  Can you say instant classics?!?!

When I found out someone licensed this I cringed...thoughts of Viz and Media Blasters entered my mind.  But Funimation is good most of the time with their dubs.  But I gotta say absolutely nothing beats Japanese language w/ good subtitles.  Yes, I saw it downloaded but will definitely support this series.  Definitely my favorite!

On a final silly note, after watching Claymore, no other anime has kept my interest for more that 2 to 3 episodes.  Hopefully the new season in Japan will bring some good stuff.

I have to agree with Togo, the trailers for the Hulk versus movies are the bomb! I can't wait to see them but the whole time I was looking at the next avengers I was thinking about how much better the young avengers dvd would have been because NA had too many unanswered questions Caps' son could lift up the robot Caps' shield and throw it? unbelievable

There's a new action figure set for Fist of the Northstar!  ;D

http://revoken.jp/lineup/index.html?ken

I was so mad when my 1st Kenshiro action figure got busted during delivery. It was the most articulate action figure at the time! You could even change the fists and heads to make different attacks.

But now a new series is out and they're more normal sized!
Do you prefer a hero who will confirm your deepest fears? Or a hero who will inspire faith in humanity and goodness?

Check out XAM&;D: LOST MEMORIES.  Believe it our not its getting released here in teh states before Japan.  If you like a lil bit of BeBop, Studio Ghibli, and maybe a lil Evangelion, I think you'll like this.  Its up to like 8 episodes atm and has a really interesting story so far.

Have any of you guys seen this show called Moribito: guardian of the spirit, on Adult Swim? I don't know how long it has been on air but I saw an ep from saturday the animation is nice and the fight scenes are intense!
