@kkslider5552000 i been buying the One Piece sets. I got part 4 & 5 of season 4 and part 1 & 2 of season 5. that last set i got for 13 bucks very cheap but i as i watched it i realize why. 50% of it is a recap filler of everyones first appearance/arc(even Robins which just aired 6 or so episodes before). they always have filler episodes before a new arc begins but since Enies Lobby is a direct continuation of the previous arc they had to squeeze them somewhere in the middle.

I realize why it's a thing. I just find it to be a mix of mildly amusing and mildly annoying that they included it in the DVD when it didn't matter to me if they skipped them.

Also at this rate I'm buying them I'll actually be watching One Piece episodes I've never seen (early?) next year!

It only took me 5 years.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

Actually, I watched the fansubs way back in 2007 but stopped for the sake of official releases and to this day I have not seen anything past like episode 330 or anything past it in the manga (though I know a few things).

I've been watching Kenichi: History's Mightiest Disciple for a while via Netflix. Man... this show is GOOD.

Sailor Moon Crystal has been pretty disappointing because of the animation.

The transformation sequences is the worst part of it.

IDK I thought Sailor Mars had a really cool transformation way better than the old one.

Yeah, I've been reading the manga (all caught up with Japan), and I really like it. At times it can seem to drag, but it's mostly paced really well, and it has some of the best in depth explanation & attention to detail to the martial arts I've seen in a manga since Rurouni Kenshin.

Granted, due to the fanservicy design of every single female character in the series (though it seems to have been toned down in the anime, based upon the few episodes I've seen), I can understand why it hasn't gained the same kind of popularity as other current long running Shonen series, but that's really a shame, since it really is a good series.

Hmmm.... where can I find the manga series? I'll gladly read it.

might try the manga, I loved the anime but I watched it in the time I disliked mangas(for being colorless)

Well, I'm not going to lie that out of the 3 scouts we've seen so far Mars is the best. Let's do a comparison of Mars because why the hell not?
[youtube:EdqcaSSF9tc].
The choreograph is pretty much identical to one another, but the 3D model of Mars looks terrible, why does it look plastic? I know that's nitpicking, but that's just atrocious with the way they made her, Moon and Mercury look.

@Blast & @GuSolarFlare, I was reading it at MangaFox (the only manga reader that worked on my 3DS), but they just recently got rid of a bunch of there stuff... (including this series).

I imagine you'd be able to find it on a number of other online manga readers, though.

Also, there are 2 different versions of the manga. The first is Ryozanpaku History's Strongest Disciple, which runs for 40 something chapters, but then for some reason he decided to completely reboot the series from the beginning (maybe once he got a grander idea of where to take it), and came out with History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi, which not only completely re-imagines the events of the previous series, but it goes on to be so much more. It's 550+ chapters and still ongoing, and is the series the anime is based on.

started reading Onepunch-man it's really good, though I didn't read many action mangas this one has some of the best art I've seen, I can clearly understand all that's happening without looking harder or having some character explain what's goiong on....

Blue Exorcist is the definitive example of why anime should either stick exclusively to a mostly 1-to-1 adaptation or should know what they're doing from the beginning when trying to change it.

Up to date on One piece, at the fourth or fifth movie, only 12 more episodes until Bleach is fully dubbed, got nothing else to watch after that unless I watch some new seasons of animes that I was once up to date on.

Toonami Saturday night!

Attack on Titan - Missed it.

Bleach - WTH, a random filler episode? Apparently the Soul Society has the ability to import things from America, lol.

Space Dandy - Huh, the Gogol people actually got to be a part of the main story this time. Decent episode.

Naruto Shippuden - Typical end of an arc stuff. Celebration, solemn remembrance, looking to the future.

One Piece - One giant out of the way, Luffy kicking a**, and the CP9 people were assigning themselves power levels. Fun episode.

Blue Exorcist - Pretty fantastic action for the conclusion. Wait, did they just insinuate that "you know who's" actions weren't completely derived from evil...? (that's just f***** up. "He" isn't supposed to have "good intentions", even if he twists them up). Overall, as a series, though I gave it a lot of flak, I did like it. It was generally a good show with great animation, an interesting theme (though it had it's issues), and it had about the perfect mix of seriousness & laid back moments. I actually really liked the idea of mixing western & eastern cultural lore, which made it all the more disappointing that they went so deeply into incorporating the idea of the devil (and completely missing the point).

Batman - Didn't watch.

Black Lagoon - This was quite a heavy episode, but I can't wait until next week to see Revy & Ginji beat the s*** out of those lowlifes for what they're doing to that girl.

EDIT: Oh, and they showed a new promo for Gurren Lagaan, which starts next week. Can't wait!

It's been recently announced that the series Working!! will receive a third anime season. http://www.otakutale.com/2014/working-anime-season-3-announced/
@Tobias95: I haven't watched it so I wouldn't know. However, based on your anime interests such as Love Lab and Tamako Market, I would recommend watching something like Acchi Kocchi (Place to Place) or Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions.
