I just saw the first 5 episodes and they were great. Sucks to hear that the show slows down

Watched some more Naruto. It's great, but creators/writers on this show are the masters at dragging things out

Nice triple post ;)

I saw Love Hina. I wasn't too impressed with it. There's only so much sexual frustration I can take before I want the protagonists to do something about it. I liked Mitsune, to be honest, she would make me laugh.

I'm currently watching the last 20 episodes of Samurai X which is IMO the best anime I've seen yet!
...and what's this Samurai 'Champloo'?

Typical few episode slowdown in an Anime. Episodes 1-13 i give a 10 Very well done

14-20 maybe an 8 or 7.5, kinda slow and your always like "When is some ass gonna get kicked?" or "Man that was fast"

21-23 a 9 Moods really portaited well, and you are on the edge of your seat a couple times, but there were too many things going on at once, so focus was limited

24-26 Finished to Today. I'd say 9 for the first 2, and a 12 for the final. Scryed has one of the best endings (though 100% random) ive seen in an Anime in awhile. Though it could have been 100% done without (which is why i think people dont like it) it could perhaps be the best fight sequence ive seen in an anime. Perhaps

Overall i find Scryed to be one of my favorite animes yet, i guess behind Berserk.

I recomend it to anybody, and those who dont want to spend the money on the whole thing, watch the final episode (only if you dont think youll watch the rest) I find it to be rather enjoyable.

Druken Savior:

Ill try to do more triple posts in the future since you like them soooooooo much

I own:
BGC Perfect Boxset
BGC2040 Perfect Boxset
Haibane Renmei Complete Boxset
Cowboy Bebop 1-6, movie, 4 soundtracks
Eatman 98
BASTARD!!
Various Miyazaki (Spirited Away, Kiki's Delievery Service, Mononoke Hime)
Sol Bianca Bailey Boxset
FLCL 1-3

And a bunch of random stuff I use as trading chips when I buy out anime collections, like Wiezz Kruz 1 (which sucks) and Angel Links 1 (which sucks more).

I honestly believe everyone should see all of Angel Links, so they can know just how badly a series can suck.

Samurai Champloo is basically cowboy bebop in feudal japan with a slightly different plot. Very disjointed plot of an extremely vague nature. Basically it's 26 episodes of character development and then a grand finalle. It's good, but...if you didn't like bebop, it won't be your thing.

And what do you mean last 20 episodes of Samurai X? You mean Ruroni Kenshin? Samurai X is only a 3 episode OAV, and it sucks.

Kenshin was far too rediculous for me to enjoy. Though I thought it was funny when they interviewed the manga-ka and he said "Yeah, if I had it my way, Shishio would have killed them all. But then I wouldn't get paid. So I had to let them live"

You should place angel links under heavy magnets. Because it sucks that much.

Mind you, my list is just the series that I currently own, not the things I have fansubbed or the things I've sold off.

Then Kenshin OAV's don't make any sense! They were made purely due to the fanaticism over the Cowboy Bebop Ending and totally ruin the semi-godly nature of Kenshin's skills. Do you know how retarded it is to have someone battle in a 170 degree battlefield, only to have them die of TB 30 years later?

People like the Kenshin OAV's because of the well animated but ultimately meaningless death it carries. It's terrible and it should be stricken from the record.
