A friend recently loaned me Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion and I looooooved it. It's heavy on the angst, but I like that.

I absolutely love Code Geass! Have you finished it yet? I love sad stuff and I, literally, grieved after I got done watching it.

There are actually some really funny parodies of Code Geass on Youtube (my favorite is called Code Ment, it's part of the Abridging genre, if you know what that is)

As to what I'm reading/watching, Cartoon Network just revived Toonami last week and started airing the anime Deadman Wonderland. I missed the first episode but have heard good things about it, so I plan on watching tonight. I'm also re-watching the anime Gurren Lagann and re-reading one of my favorite manga series- Banana Fish (another series I grieved after finishing)

I am finished, I flew through it. Honestly I am thinking of asking if I can borrow it again. I'm not spending money on non-essentials right now, but if I was I would totally buy it. It's super rewatchable, and I'm very disappointed it was only one season long.

No idea about "Abridging," sorry. I'll try and look it up.

Have you watched any of the Gundam series? I like Gundam Wing and Gundam Seed. They're not as dark as Code Geass but they're plenty angsty.

If I'm in the mood for something completely ridiculous I like Ouran High School Host Club.

**ETA: Total plotz on my part, Code Geass was two seasons, (R2) I just watched them one after the other and they ran together.

Bandai has the first season, both English dub and sub, on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/show?p=_ibnU74o6y4

Abridging is a form of parody dubbing. Basically, people take animated shows and provide their own voices to humorous affect. It started with a guy doing it for the original Yu-Gi-Oh series and spawned a whole bunch of other people doing other shows (fan favorites are Berserk, Yu Yu Hakusho, Sailor Moon, Naruto, DBZ (done by a "all star" voice team compiled from other abridged shows, including the guy that started a genre), etc)

Typically, the humor comes from character traits that are majorly exaggerated from the original shows or deviate wildly from them. For instance, in the Code Ment series, Suzaku is released from being imprisoned after Clovis' death due to scoring a negative on his IQ test (whereas, in the original series, he wasn't exactly stupid- just not the strategic genius Lelouch was) Also, Lelouch's flair for the dramatic from the original was amped up to 11 and, in the abridged series, he pretty much runs completely on Insane Troll Logic (examples of which are when he concludes he is magical and can probably fly, when he tries to convince C.C. that British people don't exist, his Skype call with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law (in which he threatens to kick Jude Law's ass), and when he chooses Kallen to pilot the Guren Knightmare Frame because she was the only one who could come up with something better for a weapon than his idea of a gun that shoots chainsaw bullets (her idea was a gun that shoots guns that shoot chainsaw bullets))

*coughs* Uh… not that I’m a fan of the genre or anything… :oops:

I did watch Gundam Wing back when it was on Toonami. It’s amazing because when I first watched it (back in, like, middle school) I was all about the yaoi pairings and fanfiction. Then I re-watched it years later and suddenly realized, “Holy shit! Politics, philosophy, and strategy! Where the hell did this come from?â€

I never got much into Gundam SEED, not sure why. I wonder if that’s on Youtube somewhere… I never saw Ouran High School Host Club either (I think it came out right about when I backed off my interest of anime and manga… plus it always seemed like such a “girl showâ€. I was reading Hellsing and Berserk and all the gory “boys’ mangaâ€) For a few years I went with only seeing one or two anime (like Gurren Lagann and Monster) but for the last year or so I've kinda gotten my interest in the genre back.

That sounds hilarious valsa, I will have to check some of them out. Thanks for the Code Geass link, too.

I didn't think that I would like Host Club, either, but my partner begged me to watch it and I surprised myself by enjoying it. It's funny in a cracktastic, utterly ridiculous, constantly breaking the fourth wall, kind of way. It's campy, but totally aware of its campiness. It might not be your cup of tea at all, but if I'm having an awful day it makes me laugh so I like it.

My favorite animes are the ones with politics, intrigue, mobile suits, and explosions though. I remember liking Evagelion (not as much as Gundam Wing or Seed) but it's been a long time since I've seen it.

I've been reading Rosario to Vampire lately, and I really like it. It's been a while since I read anything that wasn't yaoi, but I've been enjoying keeping up with Tsukune and Moka. I also really like Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei.

This was probably your gateway drug, but I've been watching Hayao Miyuzaki movies with my offspring.

I liked Evangelion as anime and Battle Royale as manga. What can I say? I'm retro :P

Did some nifty art of both of them...

It's not exactly Manga, but I just read Persepolis 2 and am now reading Maus Volume 1.

The latest manga I read was Full-metal Alchemist.

JFC, you did Evangelion fanart? If you did I would love to see that!

I'm reading Cardcaptor Sakura! I want to try to read all of pre-Tsubasa and XxxHOLic manga before I start up on the series... I hardly re-watch any anime I like (which is weird) but I'm re-watching Bacanno. I'm also starting to get into One Piece; in which I'm way behind. I also love Hetalia. OMG Valsa; you're an abridged fan too? * high faves * Have you watched None Piece yet? I also really like that genre; too. * sorry for the long ramble * :oops:

I did do Evangelion fanart :) Pokemon too. I'm not too clever artistically but it worked.

Recently finished Genesis of Aquarion, which fun, but your enjoyment of it will go down withe every mecha show you're familiar with. Currently reading Deadman Wonderland, which is fairly dark, but oddly fun. Or maybe I'm just a sick puppy that way. :)

I read Naruto, One Piece, and Toriko and I watch the One Piece anime. One Piece is my favorite. I like the character designs and the story really pulls me in. I like that Eiichiro Oda, the mangaka, will call back things that were mentioned hundreds of chapters ago.

Random Question: Any advice for good manga for little kids? Think early-elementary-school-level.

The most kid friendly anime I can think of is Avatar: The Last Airbender. My sister is pretty conscious of what her kids watch and she lets her eight year old view it.

As an added bonus, I think it's good! As far as written stuff, I'm not sure.

I like several series, including Sailor Moon, Sorcerer Hunters, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Witch Hunter Robin. I haven't seen all of Witch Hunter Robin because Netflix is missing some discs. I've seen the live action Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon eps on YouTube and I'm cautiously looking forward to the new Sailor Moon reboot.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
