    Talking Anyone into Anime or Manga?

    I had a quick search and other than posts i have made (lol) and a post from 2006 there doesn't seem to be any post for people who like Anime and Manga!

    Well I do, there anyone else out there who does?

    The last things I watched were Kimi ni todoke 2, Shinrei tantei yakumo and i'm about half way through Night head genesis.

    I haven't been reading any manga lately, but my list of currently reading is rather large! I should really catch up on Vampire Knight.

    Also! Anyone here a con goer?

    Hi I like anime and mangas. I grew up reading and watching them, I grew up in Tokyo. I still read mangas, and watch some anime, I've been to a few conventions. But I don't think I'm as hardcore as you are.

    I still like to read Bleach, Naruto and Claymore. I still watch Bleach, and sometimes Naruto.

    I liked them, but I grew up with watching Japanese movies and dramas. My guy absolutely didn't like the live action, but he liked the anime ones.

    I like anime/manga!
    I've been keeping up with some of the current ones but my favourites are FLCL, Detroit Metal City, Puella Magica Madoka, Ghibli Films, manga by CLAMP, One Piece and Kaiji.

    I could never get into stuff like Bleach, Naruto, and Death Note though

    My hopes are to find something I'm comfortable with cosplaying as (and actually finding the time to go to conventions - they're always during uni time for me)

    I love Studio Ghibli, I was raised on their movies. My ulitmate favorite is Nausicaš of the Valley of the Wind, it's before the studio was created. I was waiting forever for that to come out on Dvd, even in Japan it was only available on VHS until mid 2000s.

    I found Studio Ghibli in my teens - they're definitely some of my favourites and will pretty much remain one of my favourite 2D animation companies. My favourite is Howl's Moving Castle. It used to be Spirited Away but when I thought heavily about it, certain elements bothered me too much. I don't think I've seen Nausicaa, sadly.

    I like all of them, haven't had one that I didn't like. I do recommend Nausicaa

    I was well into that sort of thing when I was younger. I will still watch some of my old favourites now like Digimon or Sailor Moon and I used to read a couple mangas like Chobits and .hack. I'm a huge fan of Studio Ghibli though! Nausicaa, KDS and Princess Mononoke are my favourites.

    I'm doing a degree in animation at the moment so while anime is not my favourite style, I'm always looking for new things to check out. I've heard FMA is good.

    FMA is awesome. I've been reading the Manga for years (now ended, abloobloobloo), and wasn't too keen on the first anime because it caught up with the manga then they had to make up their own storyline because they were out of printed material to adapt. FMA: Brotherhood is truer to the Manga, but... Because they (Funimation) already made the first half of the previous Manga into the previous Anime, they kinda skip everything up to and including the end of Act 1 and compress it into about half a season of FMA: Brotherhood.

    That said, Brotherhood IS excellent. I just think it's a terrible shame they skip over, well, The Important Stuff (avoiding spoilers).

    I like a decent variety of Manga genres, from the stuff for boys all the way up to adult horror or fantasy. I've yet to try getting into some of the densha manga though, and I am a serious train nerd. There's one in particular I'd like to get my hands on, but I forget the name. It's about a serious train otaku who spends his time travelling Japan and visiting little local railway lines and obscure stations, and he's accompanied on his journey by the manga artist and her team. Last time I was in Tokyo I saw a documentary about how the Manga is made, but promptly forgot the name of it! Gah!
