    Right now I'm watching Bleach on YTV...yeesh what a family dynamic :D  & Naruto

    In terms of DVDs...sooner or later I've got to get the 4th Inuyasha movie. Maybe I'll buy it next month from the Providence centre mall when I'm at BotCon.

    On animeepisodes.net I'm currently watching Digimon Savers

    Seeing that picture still gives me shivers down my spine. Thank god I never let you force me to watch that show. Two minutes of it while flipping channels was more than enough for me. I still can't believe that you wasted a letter to Nintendo Power asking about something related to it, and that they actually answered it. Why didn't you ask about, oh, say, VIDEO GAMES?!?!?!?!

    As for me, the only anime I ever truly liked was Fullmetal Alchemist. That show kicked ass. In general, I dislike anime. That's just me, though.

    Nothing at the moment, but I recently picked up all of Patlabor on Television to watch during my month off and Solid State Society should turn up just as i'm finishing that.

    I'll be looking at VOTOMS or Planetes after that, not decided which yet.

    You know, I've been feeling the same way. Was going through some of my CDs and listened to Tank.. which got me to wanting to watch Bebop again. So I dug through my mountain of DVDs and pulled it out.

    Watched both Outlaw and FLCL recently because of the Ultimate FLCL edition, and Outlaw when the series set came out. I've come close a few times to watching Planetes again.


    I've also newly taken an interest in Bleach. Of course I know what a success it's been... but generaly defaulted to Naruto. Now that it's airing on Toonami, I managed to check out a few eps.. and it gave me enough of a taste to eventually (last thursday) pick up the first 2 dvds. After 8 eps I'm pretty hooked.

    Haven't seen, or even really know anything about Death Note beyond the name. Been seeing it mentioned more and more. Like many titles, it will float under my radar; until it smacks me right in the face.

    I'm watching Romeo x Juliet. I've been waiting for an anime version of the story for quite a while. I'm reading One Piece, Sailor Moon, and Full Metal Alchemist mangas. These past couple days I must have read over 60 One Piece chapters, and once I'm done, I've got the whole Sailor Moon manga run to read.

    I'm collecting Fate/Stay Night stuff, currently waiting on the Revoltech Saber figure to be released.

    It's been released. Check eBay, there's domestic sellers that have it. Unfortunately it's a bit more expensive then the regular Revoltechs.

    Thanks for the heads-up. Turns out I must have messed something up and the pre-order never went through.. NOW I should have one coming in the mail soon.

    What series or Anime movies are you currently watching. Can be off TV, On Demand, borrowing from a friend, or other means?


    Nagasarete Airantou, Lucky Star (subbed), Eureka Seven, Gundam SEED Destiny, Full Metal Alchemist (dubbed, on YTV). I recently watched Haruhi, Shakugan no Shana and Fate/Stay Night (subbed), and Gun x Sword (Dubbed, on G4 TechTV).

    What series or Anime Movies are you corrently collecting on DVD?

    Ergo Proxy - I'm waiting to see this series as it's released on DVD. It's damned good!

    What series or movies are you just waiting to start in on (coming to dvd) ?

    Looking forward to Shakugan no Shana season 2 to start this autumn, and hopefully the rumours about a season 2 of Haruhi have some truth to them!

    What collectibles are you buying? Figures? CDs? Posters? Books? Magazines? Manga? ETC ?

    I picked up vol. 1 of the English release of Shakugan no Shana, and if anyone ever gets around to licensing Makoto Yukimura's Vinland Saga, I'll snap it up in a heartbeat!

    And as far as figures go - does my new E-hobby Robotmasters Victory Saber count?

    I'm about half-way through the Death Note manga right now. I'm looked like Dr. Rockso and cocaine. As for anime, this has been the busiest season for me that I recall. Moonlight Mile, Gurren Lagaan, Heroic Age, Darker Than Black, Romeo X Juliet, Bleach, Naruto Shippuuden, and Koutetsushin Jeeg are all on my weekly watch list. As for buying, Chevalier d'Eon is the only series currently being released that I'm getting. However, I've been trying to fill in the gaps in my FMA and Fighting Spirit collections.

    Currently Watching:

    -> Toonami - I usually just leave the whole block on as background noise. Naruto would be a great show if the pacing wasn't so damn slow, but the rest is fairly forgettable.
    -> See "Collecting On DVD". I don't care for subs, so I don't watch anything online and I refuse to watch AdultSwim, so if I'm watching anything, it's usually on DVD.

    Currently Reading:

    -> Death Note - This is a truly inspired, excellent series...right up until the end of Volume 7. I just bought and read Volume 11 a few days ago and the ending is going to have to be absolutely spectacular to make up for it treading water for the last four volumes.
    -> Fullmetal Alchemist - Just finished Volume 13. Can't say whether I prefer it to the anime or not; they both stand up very well and I really look forward to getting new volumes of this one.
    -> Hellsing - Meh, it's not bad. The art is good, but needlessly confusing during the fight scenes. So far, I'm liking the (Ultimate) anime better.
    -> Neon Genesis Evangelion - Picked up the first few volumes at a 'closing forever' sale at a nearby Waldenbooks; haven't started reading yet.

    Collecting on DVD:

    -> Scrapped Princess - Picked up the Complete Collection a few weeks ago and watched through to episode 15 before running into a bad sector on the DVDs and setting it aside until I get a chance to get a new set. Great animation and a decent story, but it's not quite hooking me as easily as other shows.
    -> Eureka Seven - Really great series that's just starting to pick up but the DVD release is glacially slow; it won't be finished until sometime next year, I think, at the current rate.
    -> Hellsing Ultimate - Beautiful animation and overall fun, but the frenetic pace makes me glad I watched the original anime first.

    Looking Forward To:

    -> Death Note - A little concerned how they're going to make such a dialogue-heavy manga into an interesting anime, but should be worth it.
    -> Ergo Proxy - Reading reviews for now and taking a wait-and-see.
    -> Fate/Stay Night - Sounds pretty generic so far, but the reviews have been decent.
    -> Evangelion Movies

    Collectibles:

    -> RevolTech EVAs - Currently have one version of each EVA and planning to get two of each version of Unit 05.
    -> Angel Chromosome Statues (Evangelion).

    My Heat Guy J box set arrived today, so I'm going to be watching the hell out of that for the next week or so. Enjoying Bleach and Blood+ on [adult swim].

    Honestly, I can't remember the last Anime DVD I buyed (aside from the aforementioned HGJ set). I bought FMA as it was coming out, often on the release date, and I plan to get the live action Cutie Honey, but that doesn't really count. Really looking forward to the new Eva movies and will probably pick up the rest of the new Macross dub at some point.

    Last Anime toys I bought were some Pokemon figures, but I'm sure that will change. Revoltech is calling to me.
