Actually, if we're counting movies, I think my older brother has saved some VHS tapes that we recorded some of the DBZ movies & all the InuYasha movies on (back when they were initially shown on Toonami & AS), and they're still deep within his closet somewhere, lol (though, we don't have a VHS anymore).

Not official releases, though.

Nvm, I got a dumb question to ask though. can the vhs actually record in HD? If I do remember correctly, I do have VHS tape of Spiderman 2 or 1, and Pikachu's Winter Vacation 2. I still have VHS in my room.

Don't even bother reading this signature. Wait, you're reading this signature aren't you? (¬_¬)

No. The only physical media that can hold an HD quality video is Blu-Ray (and the defunct HD-DVD).

I'd imagine you could record an HD show/movie onto a VHS, but it wouldn't have the ability to play it back at that quality.

I watched most of Space Dandy and tbh I don't see what the fuss is about. The humour is ok but never burst out laughing funny and the show itself is kind of shallow without being flashy enough to overcome it. I did enjoy the odd episode here and there but overall considering it's got Shinichirō Watanabe name attached it's a big let down for me.

Have you ever seen Haunted Junction? I thought that was quite funny as well! It's set in a school.

Well, looks like no more manga for me... :(

Manga Fox mobile (the only site that works on the 3DS browser) has been broken the past 4 days. All their chapter links (including stuff I've already read, and stuff they supposedly just got in) lead to a page that says "Manga Fox Oops", warning that the URL was either moved, removed, or never existed...

I actually even tried using the trick to turn the YouTube app into a web browser (and tried a site that doesn't work on the normal browser), and that works for a few pages, but the app always crashes 5-10 minutes in.

I don't think I could've handled reading manga on the crappy 3DS browser anyway. :P

But, sorry to hear that. :(

It was good in 2006 in the era of YTMND and Katamari Damacy still being semi-relevant.

That's actually the best way to answer.

Why is it that most of the time, the characters in Manga are always depressing such as parents are killed and so he lives like this and all that other sad stuff like being the best?

I get writers can't think of any other interesting things to do for characters but why do they do what others did instead of doing something different? Like why is the main hero dumb most of the time instead of being smart?

LBX is Nickelodeon's newest attempt on the kids marketing anime. I don't remember the Japanese name but I'm kind of surprised this came over. It's really similar to medabots but the robots are smaller. It's like they're not even trying to hide that they're advertising toys. Er, well, I guess they really aren't hiding it.

Disney is also kinda doing the same thing, except, they're doing this at Doraemon. Disney already naruto once, and the dub is bad. I'll doubt the Disney dubbing Doraemon is a good idea....

1. Because parents being killed are a good dramatic event that anyone can immediately relate to and understand.

2. The dumb hero is because Goku was really popular and because they can make it up by being a strong and smart fighter. Also, comedy.

3. Read something that isn't shonen.

I get more fed up when the main character is an annoying and meek yet tons of girls are fighting over him, still I love Tenchi even if he does ruin his own show.

How much you like it. Granted, I feel that price plays a huge factor into it. Fate/Zero is one of my favorite animes, and there's no way I'm purchasing it with the ludicrous price tag it has. Also, rewatchability plays a big factor. If you'll only watch a show once, I don't know why you'd buy it, unless if it was super cheap.

EDIT: Oh, extras play a factor too. Part of why I bought Code Geass was all of the extras packed in it. Tons of commentaries, interviews, and even the radio drama things were included.

The only reason I would buy a series would be if I really loved it and wanted to support the creator, studio, ect. Most of the time though I'll just get some of the mangas instead. I've seriously never owned DVD's of any anime. I'm honestly surprised now that I've thought about it.

I looked up the tie-in toys for LBX last night too. Holy crap those things are so cool. I'm gonna have to get a few when they hit the states. Please be reasonably priced.
