I'd probably recommend switching to the manga afterwards, since as far as I know, the anime never went into the final arc (which is basically what the entire rest of the series has been building up to in a way).

I think after catching up with Dandy (which won't be hard ) and Kill la Kill I'll start Beck. Although it seems I'll have to finish the story through the manga? Eeh..

imo, the anime's ending for Beck is very satisfying since it picks just the right notes to go off on. The manga gets a little stranger, thanks to a few American characters, and it just wasn't as satisfying.

Also, watch it in the dub! You'll have the songs in your head for days

always thought I'd change to Gyarados after I turned 20 but hey, this is more fitting I guess. (also somebody registered under the original Magikarp name and I can't get back to it anymore orz)

Guess I'll just stick with the anime then! I would have really enjoyed the characters to have bothered continuing anyways.

On a different note, for those of you that keep up with Japanese bands or singers ...how do you do that? I mostly follow musicians through YouTube but most asian performers in general don't have an account and their songs are frequently blocked. AKFG is my prime example, having their own youtube account, but only a grand total of 4 song being on their.

Not sure how much it helps, but I think if you look around you can find some bands and singers that update a lot. For example the pillows and T.M. Revolution both have Facebook pages that seem to update well enough (maybe not the pillows as much), though sometimes the posts are mostly in Japanese, of course. D:

AFKG actually has an English division fansite/twitter that keeps you up to date on everything that's happening! I tend to forum hop a little so I guess I follow the artists through their fans. I also follow Spitz, base ball bear, Sukima Switch and the pillows.

I also try to watch live performances whenever I can. I love how Japanese artists are less flashy, and their fans are so much more respectful

Why does One Piece have to be so powerful?
I watched all of the Funimation Dub of Enies Lobby, and I just keep ending up crying. I already know everything that happens, but it always hits me right in the feels.

There's quite a few Japanese musicians on iTunes. Asian Kung-Fu Generation has two whole albums on there at least, maybe more.

Yeah, I've been looking into that, but i never read manga. Also I'm trying to decide whether or not to watch season 3

I spent my morning watching Lucky Star while firing off as many job applications as I could. Today was a good day.

I don't know why people are annoyed by the incest story in SAO...

...ok I know EXACTLY why, but I don't think they realize how much worse it could be. This is easily a million times better than say, Kiss X Sis. They have no idea how bad it could be.

Oh I know. I even have AKFG's greatest hits album and Flow's anime openings album. Unfortunately AKFG's Magic Disc isn't on their which is the album I would really love to buy.
