Ok I guess I'll give those you guys listed a try.

It seems like Lady Oscar / The Rose of Versailles is out of print or something? Unable to find it on Amazon.

-Red River
-My-Hime

Ok, added to the list.

Heh.


Hey, is Rurouni Kenshin any good? I saw a bit on television but wasn't able to follow it because it wasn't captioned. But what about manga? Is it worth reading?

I own the OVA (the good one) and seen the TV series up to the Christian arc. It's an amusing series, but I never really thought it stood out the way people make it out to be. I also own the manga in Japanese, I don't remember what I thought of it. I'd probably recommend Bleach over Kenshin, since that's what I'm currently reading

Only the first two volumes? o_O Then, the 10 volumes that were made into 2 bricks don't exist in English? Well, according to the "damn wiki", Lady Oscar isn't very popular in North America. Pft. o_O But... My, oh my. Maybe you'll have better luck with another language. >_> Classics are so underrated. I read it in French, so yeah... lucky me.

I loved the manga of Kenshin. :D They was so epic and funny as well... even though I barely remember anything about it. When I read Kenshin, it was like 10 years ago and at that age, any thing with pictures amazed me. ... ... Well anyways, Aoshi is hot.

Oh Bleach is another great manga. All the characters are so lovable and the time line twist is awesome. >_> I have trouble with Ichigo godmodding most of the time but the current arc really proves that Bleach is still awesome. (TURN BACK THE PENDULUM!)

Along with the extremely popular shounen, I guess Naruto should be read too. I stopped reading it a few years ago but I'm so glad I resumed it. Since there were so many fillers in Naruto Shippuden, I read the manga to find out what should have happened and holy goodness, it's a whole new level of badass-ness. (Yamato-taichouuu ;_;) The plot, the concept, the characters were all so very well thought and well drawn. Every strong characters have weaknesses. That's gold.

I was tricked yet again. I was laughing at how I let myself make such a weirdo typo until I realized that I was tricked. D: But then, I still laughed because I was naive. >.> I shall call this the Black Snow Syndrome.

If the ass is on the head, then yes, the characters lose their hair.

I am only asking because there's good deal with Kenshin right now especially with BigViz ed. going on right now.

I liked Bleach and Naruto on TV and I am reading S. Jump! so I am able to catch both of it in that magazine and also I read Naruto manga online. <.<;

I am only waiting on those two because I haven't even finished getting all of InuYasha and Rebirth and those two are running for long time now.

Well, Bleach and Naruto are types of manga I would like to have on my shelf, but don't have room at this moment for it.

Major issues with Bleach saddly: They are currently in another flash back arc, not to mention Tite's latest Rescue is almost a instant replay of the last one.

Major issues with Naruto: The Wankigan.

Anyway moving on...

I'm waiting for the newest Evangelion chaps to get on (Not the regular or Angelic Days)

Got to see the Latest KR: Spirits.

I would love to see a follow up series of KR Spirits where somehow they meet up with the New Schoolers and bash some heads in ( :twisted: at Kusaka Masato and Keisuke Nago)

> Hikaru no Go

Neat! I just caught up with what the library has (which is everything that's out in America)

> Hoshin engi

I watched the anime and really liked it, never got a chance to finish it though

>I need something new to read while waiting for new volumes of these.

Right now I'm reading Vagabond, from my good friend's collection. It's the story of Miyamoto Musashi, the famous swordsman, but it focuses on when he was a dirty, teenager that everyone hated. So he's basically going around acting like a ruffian until he meets this monk that tells him to clean up his act. It reminds me of Blade of the Immortal and Berserk. It's neat

You mean Neon Genesis Evangelion Gakuen Datenroku? I'm currently also reading that. I like it so far.

Anyway, I've been reading Tales of the Abyss, Tales of Legendia and other manga that are to many to name. Must hab more Abyss! *Abyss fangirl*

As for Kenshin, it's alright, never really finished reading all 27 regular volumes, read a few here and there.

Bleach, I am caught up with the current chapter in Japan. Must have more... Naruto, I read vol 1-10 back then, then skipped to chapter 382 cause it was getting very interesting and continued there.

Only manga I'm reading now is Loveless.

I had started reading Negima, but I kinda lost interest...I might start it again soon, since I'm on summer break.

Alright, so I've started reading the Bleach manga. The art style threw me a bit because it's different from the anime, but I'm getting used to it. I've also read all of Death Note (in the last month, no less :P). I love this series to death. It's nice to see a series where the protagonist is very intelligent and relies on brain over brawn to accomplish his goals. L is awesome, and I love his little quirks. Neither Near nor Mello's quirks come anywhere near the level of his.
