Hah! Nice. My mate plays the Ukulele. He started with a guitar, moved on to banjo and now the Ukulele. Guess he likes to try new instruments also. It's always good trying out new thigs.
I, sadly, haven't got a musical bone in my body. ¬_¬

Hey, Maltos. Yeah, I'm slumming around here, too. I put a link on the CBF homepage, so I hope others from the forums check it out. See you in the forums.

Yeah. The voices weren't bad on this dub; however the chicks voice wasn't quite what I was after. I've heard it too many times.

I just figured it as a sad ending cause; I wanted to see them back together. But your probably right when you say it's bittersweet. We wanted to see them back together but; it's good to have seen he moved on. And you don't need to worry about rambling, I love discussing much more subtle, directorial and metaphorical messages.

And you are right. Art = Perfect. It's a pity all his stuff is romance or i'd check more of it out.
Godot201 Mar 10, 2009 2:28 PM
To be honest, I was harsh on it. I probably would have liked it more if i watched it in Japanese, but fuck it, i'm gonna bump it to a 10.

I'm just glad I watched it with my girlfriend lol.

I was so surprised that it was a sad ending. Seriously beautiful. The art was mind blowing. From the derelect empty railways, to the beauty of the blossoms falling. Everything was executed flawlessly art wise. I'm so glad I checked this out.
Godot201 Mar 1, 2009 3:26 AM
Thanks bra'

I'm glad to have met someone who cares as much about Art in Anime as I do. So many people go 'Your missing out on great series because of it', i'm relieved your the same.
Godot201 Feb 28, 2009 12:14 PM
Nice avatar/pic man. What series is it from?
Godot201 Feb 22, 2009 3:32 AM
Mhm alright. I got something else to ask you about it too later. I'll ask on msn though.
Godot201 Feb 21, 2009 5:22 PM
Is there any 'I LOVE YOUUUU' in it?

Any romance scenes etc.??
Godot201 Feb 20, 2009 2:31 PM
d000de I just went to start reading Uzumaki and noticed its a romance =/

Sucks lol.

I remember enjoying GitS (TV series) but never having a firm grasp on everything that was going on. I think that's why I still haven't bothered getting into the second series yet, even though I've owned the S2 box set for ages. Watching S2 now isn't very tempting at all since I'd have to rewatch S1 just to remember what happened...

There's actually another DN novel coming out -- one that covers the events of the live-action L film. It doesn't sound very good this time around because it's about some sort of bio-terrorism rubbish. The film hasn't got good ratings and I'm sure the novel won't be much different.

Whilst talking about DN still, I'd like to ask a question: How good/bad is the DN sequel manga chapter; the one where Near stars as the new L? I never bothered reading it due to Near being a shit character and DN not being DN without Light or L. I noticed you've read it when I had a looksee at your manga list.

When re-reading or re-watching, I find it best to leave around a year in-between. You'll get bored if you keep going over the same ground, knowing full well what's coming next. However, when your memories aren't clear, there's a lot more enjoyment to be had. The problem I have with re-reading/watching/playing is a serious lack of motivation... I mean, I haven't replayed FFVII, my favourite game in existence, for Gd knows how many years now.

MaltosVI: Why didn't you go with Maltovski? Far better.

I came up with Aionic for the same reason. In the past I was unoriginal enough to add '7' to the end of 'RPGLord', but I became creative when Aion wasn't available and thought 'Aionic Tonic' sounded cool. I kept Aionic and disgarded the tonic.

Yup, I hate it when I'm unable to understand something. At first I wonder if its because of my brain or what I'm watching/reading, and when I become certain it isn't my fault I get pissed off with whatever I'm reading/watching. There are some exeptions but it's true for the most part. Sci-fi anime, with all the jargon that gets thrown about, usually don't appeal to me at all. That's probably why I prefer realistic and medieval type of stuff -- they're easier to understand and follow.

I typed more about the novel on AUKN (manga thread) a few hours after messaging you. The twist was great and caught me cold, but the reason it caught me cold was because the author made B.B. identical to L - even their looks matched. Since it seemed to be too obvious for the bad guy to be the one working with Naomi all a long and it was impossible to tell the difference about B.B. and L without images, it was just a bit unfair, and that's why so many people fall for it.

In truth, Another Note showed very little of L; near to nothing actually. Apart from some serious business instructions given to Naomi, he only appeared in the story at the end. B.B. acting near identical fools you into thinking its L fan service when it really isn't. It actually annoyed me a little because at the start Mello makes out his story is going to prove, once and for all, that L was far, far smarter than that idiot known as Kira, who only killed L because he held all the cards from the start. Yet, all his story showed was how Naomi saved L from never solving a case.

Don't feel bad about not thinking about the Mikami thing -- for some reason, it never crossed me mind until on my 4th or 5th time going through the warehouse part. It's just another example of the author forcing things so that the story ended how it did, like how the author forced Mello to do a 180 in order for Light to lose. I don't care a great deal when the warehouse part was probably the best part of the entire series.

By the way, what's with the roman 6 in your name? What happened to the other 5?
AironicallyHuman Feb 11, 2009 3:38 PM
I've read around half of the novel so far. I like it but have been annoyed with a couple of things. I don't like how it hasn't been explained why Naomi got suspended, I don't like how Naomi somehow failed to hear L talking on the phone to her when he was under the bed in the same room and the story is moving a bit too slowly for such a short novel. With the current pacing, it seems like its going to be a straight-forward clue hunt at each of the three crime scenes and then end fast. Also, I had no idea how L worked out the clue relating to numbers at the first crime scene -- how the heck did he (and Naomi) "wrap around" the number 10xx to get page number 2xx?

I do, however, think of it as the best sort of fan service. It doesn't go against what's been said in the manga and does attempt to flesh out two characters that were kinda wasted in the original story and one that every Death Note fan loves. Mello works brilliantly as an informal writer, giving his opinions here and there without coming across as overly serious. Naomi has come across as a little on the dumb side with how she hasn't even thought about Ryuzaki and L being the same, but she has made some amusing comments about Ryuzaki to L. L has come across as a bit too...cartoony for my liking, doing things he never did in the manga like moving about on all fours, revealing his love of manga and asking Naomi if she thinks he's cool -- I like him more when he has his serious edge. But, like I said, Naomi's comments and thoughts about this 'cartoony' L make me laugh, so I'll forgive L for not being deadly serious.


Re-reading the manga: Something pissed me off about the end of the manga story when I re-read it. For the first time I found myself wondering why Mikami didn't simply rip a piece of paper out of the notebook, hide it on his body and write on it as well as the real notebook at the end? When I sat and thought about it, going to all the trouble of getting and taking the real notebook to murder everyone was very stupid when all he needed was a page. And if he was set on taking notebook, why didn't he keep a piece of paper and write the names out twice for insurance? :/

I'm going to be kind enough to forgive you for not answering my last message and ask you a question: What's so great about Uzumaki?

I'm thinking of buying it and noticed it's in your top 5. It's tempting because it's only a short series, and even more so because I haven't yet read a horror manga. The only thing putting me off is how the title reminds me of a certain Uzumaki Naruto, who is anything but scary.

Also, I re-read Death Note over the last few weeks. It's as thrilling as ever. Didn't you re-read the manga yourself quite recently? Do you also own the box set?
