Added! Hmm, I think I've seen you around LJ actually. I use my LJ once in a while now. I used to update a lot more back then but I update less now due to lack of time. Once school has calm down, I'll promise to be more active! XD

Another site I go on is here! It's pretty much a Gintama fanbase forum. If you really like Gintama, I recommend you registering and joining in the discussion. The forums is still a small community but that's what makes it nice and cozy, hehe.

LOL yes, I remember that episode! Pretty funny at the end. :D
And that Sa-chan episode was really sweet.. And then it surprised me when Sa-chan turned out to be a complete masochist-stalker. Gintoki, you must have turned on her M-gene or something!! XD

Yoruhime | 11-05-11, 10:56 AM
I'm not too active on MAL but it's nice to meet more GINTAMA fans. The series need more love outside of Japan!! :D

For some reason, I don't mind Gintoki's interactions with the other girls (it's always comical in some way). It's only Tsukuyo that bothers me a little. Maybe because Gintoki had so many "moments" with her and the fact that Tsukuyo obviously shows feelings back. xD

Yoruhime | 11-02-11, 8:03 PM
Sorry for the late reply.. but when I said "bitter feeling", I actually meant "bittersweet". Haha, typo. To explain it a little more, I like her overall character but because there are so many people that ships Tsukuyo x Gintoki (and the fact that I'm a Gintoki fan myself), I get this bittersweet feeling. Putting it another context, I'm like another Sa-chan. Jealous of Tsukuyo's interactions with Gintoki. But I don't hate her in any way. :)

Woah, you live in Seoul?! Lucky! ^_^

Honestly, thank you for putting [you know who in ch.463 thread] in her place. Her raging arrogance and inability to admit fault was really irking me and plenty of other people.

Hey there friend! I've been on a trip across country so I haven't had internet access. I'm on my phone right now, so I would love to leave you a long reply, but it's a bit difficult as it is. I'll write again when I get back home in a few days. I hope you're doing well!
:)

Sir_Inqed | 07-20-11, 7:54 PM
It's okay, no worries. MAL tends to have quite a bit of errors lately so I've been having trouble with comments as well.

You can easily catch up with One Piece, and maybe it's a good thing that you have waited. After the Whitebeard arc it went into the flashback with Luffy, Ace, and Sabo. And that flashback actually got dragged out to like, 13 episodes and they weren't my favorite at all. Right now they are just starting to concentrate back on the rest of the Strawhats as they learn of Ace's death through the newspaper and wanting to get back to Sabaody to reunite with Luffy. So as far as I can tell, no fillers are in sight ( which is good a good thing lol ) Seeing fat Usopp is hilarious too LOL.

I saw the first two episodes to Shiki and lost interest rather quickly, and watched the first four episodes to Occult Gakuin. It's not that I find the shows bad, I just get so easily side tracked by other things that I just forget to think and one day I'll be "Oh god, there's already 8 episodes out?" and I get discouraged and just move onto something else and come back at a later date. I'll probably finish up Occult Gakuin as it's a shorter series and I'm already a quarter done with it, lol. I actually own all of GetBackers on dvd, which I got for a major deal, but they're all still wrapped up in their plastic and haven't touched them in almost three years!! I'm really bad doing that, I'll buy a bunch of series and they will sit on my shelves for a long time before I decide to watch them. I really liked Haibane Renmei, although to be honest I can't recall too much as it's been years since I've seen it. Nurarihyon no Mago I started reading last year, but only reached like chapter 20 and left it aside. Then it got licensed here in the United States and I really don't like to read scanlations if I can buy it for myself. I think they'll be releasing volume 4 this month or next, so I'll have to buy those to catch up and then rely on scans until the next volume comes out and then buy it. I have noticed that the series has been in the bottom 5 for the past several months. I would like to say that it may not get canceled because it sells well, but if you ever read Psyren, it also sold really well, but got bad rankings and got canceled. So, we'll have to see what route it takes. Considering that the anime got pretty lukewarm reviews, I'll stick with the manga instead.

As for Reborn, I can't speak for the anime as I haven't watched it. But, if I remember correctly, 2008 they were probably still on the future arc with Byakuran as the main enemy. That arc ended with chapter 282 and since then they've gotten into what's been called the "inheritance ceremony arc". I won't ruin it, but basically, Tsuna and the Vongola family are dealing with another mafia family, where the boss of that mafia begins as friends with Tsuna, and soon it becomes an outright brawl for reasons I won't say, lol. To be honest, I haven't been liking it up until recently when it's been drawing to a close, as some interesting things have come up. But what I haven't liked about it has been it's taken a "Bleach" route of having power up after power up that just seems so typical and boring. It's become one of those series I do like, but won't care if it goes downhill if it makes sense.

Shoujo is probably one of the few genres I haven't read too much of. It's not that I don't like it, it's just not something I've come across too often. I think the most shoujo series I own is Vampire Knight and I actually haven't been following up with it since like, volume 5 lol. Kuroshitsuji ( or Black Butler here in the USA ) I didn't care for the anime and stopped watching after like, 4 episodes but the manga I've been buying. The artwork is pretty, although I am somewhat bothered by the main two characters. At least it's good eyecandy, haha.

One Jump series that ended a few years ago that I absolutely LOVE is Muyho and Roji's Bureau of Supernatural Investigation. I wrote a review for it and it's in my top 5 manga. It's so not typical of Jump. I would highly recommend it as I feel it's not getting the attention and praise it should be. Just thought I'd throw that one out in hopes of gaining a new fan to it lol.

Sir_Inqed | 07-15-11, 6:42 AM
I haven't updated my manga list in a long time, so some of the stuff I have on there I'm not following very currently, lol.

Ongoing series that I follow from Jump would be One Piece, Naruto, Bakuman, Katekyo Hitman Reborn, and Magico, which is a newer series that has been doing good according to the Jump rankings. I followed the anime Bakuman, wasn't terribly impressed with the first season, and I haven't given Reborn a shot at the anime. I do follow the One Piece anime religiously though, lol.

This summer season I'm only following two new shows, which are No. 6 and Mawaru Penguindrum. Penguindrum is probably the most excited I've been for a new anime in a very long time. It's directed by Ikuhara, who is responsible for directing some of the Sailor Moon anime and one of my favorite movie and series, Revolutionary Girl Utena. He's known for his odd elements of gender defying roles and throwing out lots of heavy symbolism and foreshadowing. If you have the time try giving Penguindrum a chance this summer or pick up Utena. It's a little date, ( circa 1997 ) but quite good.

I'm also giving currently watching HeartCatch Precure, which is a very magical girl series, lol. It's actually quite entertaining. The animation is really good, and surprisingly enough, even though it's very typical of a magical girl, there are some great fighting scenes. It's very "monster of the day" themed, so it gets a little typical at times. But I read good things on it and will continue watching.

One anime I highly recommend is "Michiko to Hatchin" which is in my top five. It came out about two years ago, but it's completely underrated and one of the best I've ever seen. It takes place in South America, it doesn't specify which country, but by the environments it's very Brazil-like.
Michiko is a renegade convict who searches for the daughter of her former boyfriend, who rescues her from her horrible foster family and together they travel in search of the girl's father. They are very opposite characters, which makes the anime so refreshing and interesting. Michiko is very hot headed, loud, and obnoxious. While Hatchin is more calm, intellectual, and the one with a clear head on her shoulders.
I could go on about it, but it has been one of the most rewarding series I have seen in a long time.

I hope I mentioned something interesting in this message. There are lots of other shows I could have recommended but those came to mind at the moment. Please feel free to share your favorites or things you'd recommend, I'm always eager to hear what others like :D


Sir_Inqed | 07-13-11, 5:38 PM
There was some error with MAL yesterday, so I couldn't respond lol. >_<'

You took the words right out of my mouth on a lot of your points :)

It's amazing how blindly devoted and ignorant the fanbase can be. I think on top of already being frustrated with the way Bleach has just dissolved into a pathetic mess, it's even more agonizingly frustrating when people will just not come to terms that it's bad when it's so obviously staring them in the face. Trying to find some kind of justification for it, is just pathetic and like you and I have probably noticed, some people come up with just insane ideas and theories that they are so deluded over and start thinking they're fact. I agree with you it is a bit mor entertaining to spite them, and reading up on how ridiculous their ideas are, yet it's still sad that they can't have common sense.

What about the anime? I think it's even worse. I actually dropped the series at around episode 140 or something, when Chad and Ishida were first going into Hueco Mundo. At first I did it because I was so annoyed with all the stupid filler content, but I just lost interest in the anime. And every now and then I've seen a snippet of the episodes after I dropped it and it looks like I'm not missing much. Considering how this new arc is going in the manga, and how bad it is, I can be sure the anime adaptation is going to be just as bad if not worse.

Kubo should change the title of Bleach to "Super Sentai Ichigo" now that he's parading around in that new spandex outfit of his LOL


Sir_Inqed | 07-11-11, 6:13 PM
I started reading Bleach around 6 years ago, which I think is a long time to be devoted to a series. I thought everything was very interesting in the earlier chapters and even thought the earlier parts of the Arrancar arc were still good.

I think what I am bothered by is that I feel cheated by the way things went over the course of the last two years or so. Kubo was going at a very slow pace, not covering very much per chapter, and coming up with ridiculous ideas.

I felt like there were too many plotholes that were left open. What happened to some of the Espada? Grimmjow for example was defeated by Ichigo as you know, but we are not told if he died or anything. Halibel apparently fell at Aizen's hand, but the way it was done made it seem like she was hurt, but not killed off. I don't like being made to feel like something is not finished, you know? Tell the reader, or if not telling, show that the characters in fact are dead. It might just be me, but that right there is a big issue I had. I don't like not having closure.

The other part, is simply the way Aizen was handled. Kubo kept making him seem more and more powerful, which I thought was ridiculous and a cheap way to make things progress. I kept feeling like no matter how the character of Ichigo progressed, Aizen was just one step ahead, which seemed unrealistic and cheap. At first I thought that Aizen was indeed a cunning and smart man, but by the time the Fake Karakura town arc was coming to an end, I just thought he was a complete mess of a character.

Now with the current arc, I have really lost all interest. Why create so many new characters that I personally think are useless and uninteresting. I don't care about them. He already has a huge cast of characters, why not utilize them in the new arc to solve some previous plot holes and then move on. I feel like Ichigo has completely regressed back. You would think that after all that he's gone through, he would seem a little more put together, but he's a mess. I don't care if this new villain is making things so chaotic for him by taking away his friends and family, but his character is completely different. It's not like him to act the way he is.

Sorry if this is really long, but I wanted to make sure I got my views across. Basically, at this point I'm just reading Bleach because I just want to know how things end. It might not be for years, but I'm doing it because I've invested 6 years of my life to it and at least want to know how things will end. I don't really have any high expectations from Kubo, he kind dug himself a deep ditch that he's going to have a hard time climbing out of. And if it were me, I wouldn't help him out lol.

Sir_Inqed | 07-10-11, 5:21 PM
Yes they did hurt, I'd be lying if I said they didn't lol. But the upper arm is more muscley and the skin isn't near as sensitive so it was probably the least painful. And the area worked perfectly in incorporating Usagi's scene from the R movie so I went ahead with it.

I've gotten mixed reactions regarding my anime related tattoos, but for the most part people have been genuinely interested :)

Sir_Inqed | 07-10-11, 8:31 AM
Hey no prob, I'm glad I stopped by your page :)

Sailor Moon is a personal favorite of mine, moreso for nostalgic's sake. I have Usagi tattooed on my upper arm if you can tell from my profile picture, lol. It was my gateway to anime and manga so I had to pay homage to it.

Sir_Inqed | 07-10-11, 1:56 AM
I finished going through the "Bleach Chapter 455 Discussion" and just want to give you props for being consistent in your statements made against Fai. You made sense and were speaking logically instead of coming up with some farfetched theories and fanatical bullshit that had no reasoning behind it. I'm glad that there are rational people out there :)
