Huh. Shonen-y is a complaint I've heard, not that I mind Shonen. I dunno, I'll definitely watch it at some point, but for right now my main reasons not to are that I dislike the art, fanboys who hate on FMA, complaints that it has lame/inappropriate timed humor, that it's more lighthearted, that it's characters have less depth, and the pacing is bad. I will watch it at some point, but it's not high on my priorities by any standard.

Then again, I'm really not a great early judge. Based on the first episode of Trigun alone I didn't like it, but now I love it.

I actually greatly prefer Brotherhood's style to FMA's. The first anime's just seems so stiff to me in comparison. Things look smoother around the edges so to say in Brotherhood for me. And are those complaints you listed directed towards Brotherhood? Cause you listed the exact opposite of what makes it so great. Minus the pacing, and even then I'd argue that's only a problem for the earlier half of the show.

They aren't complaints I have, but are ones I've heard.

Just finished watching 8 Man After on YouTube!

Pretty entertaining. It was your Japanese style cyborg super hero stuff (think Tatsunoko properties), just a bit darker and story driven. The action was pretty good as well.

Oh, and the police chief kinda looked like a gruff Mario, lol.

Has any anime ever gone for an anthology series? I don't think I've ever seen one. I'd sure like to see how'd that work out.

There are a few, I know I've seen at least three: Gundam Evolved, MS IGLOO, and Rumiko Takahashi Anthology (Aka Rumic Theater).

It got so good! I want to skip a month so I can read the next chapter .

@Konata
It ain't a weekly manga?

@Konata
Geeze a chapter a month, well I guess that gives more room for quality, at least hypothetically.

Good point, imagine how stressful it'd be to write something for a weekly publication.

Heck no, it's monthly.

Does that mean one volume comes out every month, or one chapter in a volume comes out every month?

Actually it's a guy writing and drawing the manga...

I guess that's good because it allows for more creativity, due to the fact that the author isn't rushing to get it all out at once in an actual volume.
