Gantz is probably the only anime released last year that's gorier than Elfen Lied. It's not bad.

You just now got your Eva box set? I got mine in december.

Gantz...ironically, I have the 2nd stage already (eps 14-26) but not the first part. The uncensored DVD versions are slow in coming. When they finally get released I'll watch the whole thing.

Speaking of gory anime. Do you think there will be any good ones for this year? Can't say I've heard of any.

For big series. But there are constant little 6-13 episode series that go on throughout the year that are constantly switching. GANTZ and Elfen Lied were in that catergory.

When I ordered it, I guess it was backordered. I ordered it on Dec. 20th and it has been backordered since. I think they got tired of me bothering them because I kept sending them e-mails asking them where my DVD set was. Thankfully they finally sent it and I got it today. I have been buying the Platinum Edition that was just released and there are only two more in that set so I might buy them anyways even though I just got the whole box set.

Why feel sorry? If people like it then that's no skin of your nose. Personally didn't think it was wonderful but good nonetheless.

I have seen:
Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2010
Rayearth
Ghost in the Shell
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
Gundam Wing
RahXephon
Gundam MS 08th
Ah! My Goddess
Evangelion
Cowboy Beebop
Inuyasha
Dragon Ball
Dragon Ball Z
Dragon Ball GT

Out of all of those I still think Evangelion is the best. It has awesome character development, awesome battles and it is one of those animes that after watching multiple times you still find something new. It is reallly interesting for me especially because being a Christian I find a great deal of the references in it (of course they all are not good, but still there nontheless).

Did any one of you saw One Piece?
I never saw a game or anime have as good characters design as One Piece
and the musics are very good too
it is very good anime but the manga is stall better because every thing the anime added are very bad
but it is stall very good anime
Note that I watched the anime then I read the manga

The one thing One Piece does not have going for it is the character models. I generally don't mind different styles but One Piece's just doesn't appeal to me. Can't comment on story as I've only seen one or two episodes here and there.

I liked One Piece for a while aswell but just lost interest around episode 20ish watching the original versions. Liked Naruto better but then again it helps it's about Ninja's...

I did like the character designs of One Piece there were very original and strange.

One Piece is better than Naruto, and I had actually got into One Piece two years after Naruto. Paper, all the stuff in the One Piece anime is almost exactly how it is in the manga, they really havent added much to the anime that wasn't in the manga already.
