I really do find manga to be the most amazing thing ever.  
You may think to yourself why, or why? isn't anime superior to manga? Is it not much cooler to see the stories you like animated?  
 
Well allow me to rant about why i find manga so amazing for a little bit.  
The short version would be this: Because manga has this magical ability to make absolutely anything, and i mean  anything interesting enough to actually care about.  
I was never a big fan of sports, especially not american football. That is until i started reading Eyeshield 21. Seeing the main character evolve from a scared servant to those stronger then him type of character into one of the worlds best athletes was really something. And the manga even thought me the rules of american football in the progress, made me understand why people enjoy the sport in real life.  
 
Recently i have been getting into this manga about climbing. Yes climbing, of all things. Sadly i lost its name and i cannot find it again but from what i read i was really motivated to see the main character climb a new challenge and see how much he enjoyed it, see how it changed the character as a person in a good way and how the others around him reacted to it.  
 
You can take almost any topic, hobby, sport or any such thing and there will probably be a manga about it. In manga the hardworking people that draws and creates the story put real passion into showing their characters. You can feel the passion for what they wish for in the manga you read, you can relate to characters trough events or how they react trough different situations making you become closer to that character. Trough hard determination and will power you see your favorite characters overcome obstacles and grow trough their experiences.  
 
Of course there are drama manga that can be really sad as well. I have found that some of these taught me a bit about myself as a person, who i sided with in the story and who i cared for in them refined myself as a person in a way. I will mention Saikano as one of thees. It is the saddest manga i have ever read, it made me cry several times, especially the ending.  
Even though i would never find myself in a similar situation i felt for the characters as things got worse and worse in it. Another perhaps more well known manga like this would be Elfen Lied. Who is the real monster kind of story through and through, i still find the ending to be dumb but still.  
 
As for why i prefer manga is because the mind, your mind makes the scenes that play out in front of you just like you want yourself. But then comes the anime and you are disappointed in one way or another. It could be anything from animation style, hair color to voice actor. It is rare i am 100% happy about an anime version of something i have read as a manga but it happens. One Piece is fairly true to its source material however there are some changes that are annoying and some voice actor choices did disappoint but most of it was spot on from what i imagined. However the fights were animated way better then the way i had imagined they would be so that is also a plus.  
 
But overall i do still prefer the manga version of things, its paced the way you like it yourself, and well the manga usually have more attention to detail where anime has more attention to animation. I am by no means saying my opinion is the only one which matters, this is all just my opinion and i know people will disagree with me but this is just a little about why i like manga so much.  
 
One thing i do love about anime though is how a character you have grown to like in a manga may be even further developed as the result of anime episodes that deals with things not in the manga, some people hate fillers like these but i enjoy them, seeing something that is not mentioned in the manga and such. Again there are exceptions, i dont feel Bleach handles fillers very well for example but i did enjoy the Zanpakuto arc where the swords all had personalities and all that. One of the biggest offenders of this is Katekyo Hitman Reborn, removing entire arcs and characters and pretend they dont exist.  
 
Well that about wraps it up for now, just felt like writing about why i like manga so much. If anyone reads this feel free to comment or mention why you dont like manga, prefer anime, agree or disagree with me. Til next time good people :)  
 
EDIT: As Tubutas was nice enough to tell me the manga about the climbing is named Kokou no Hito .

And well at first i didnt think too much of it but i was hooked after the 2nd episode.  
It started out as a fun anime but after i finished i gotta say it turned out to be one of my favourite anime shows.  
I gave it a full score on My Anime List as well. 10 out of 10. Its rare i give shows a full score but almost everything about this anime is so enjoyable and good. 
I dont want to spoil anything tough so im not going to go into detail about what makes it great, the surprises and such are some of the good parts of the game.  
I will mention that its from Gainax studios the same studio that did the anime with mixed reactions: Panty and Stockings with Garterbelt.  
This i havent seen yet but i will eventually, i was a big fan of Powerpuff Girls when i was a kid and this looks like that style wise but for adults.  
I havent really seen too much anime lately since i have been more on gaming lately, me and a friend is writing on a site about games nowadays as well. Il post the more finished page sometime later if anyone is interested in reading it.  
 
In Conclusion: Abenobashi is a great anime. I can easily recomend it to any anime fan. It has something for everyone. Also on my next to finish list is Toaru Majitsu no Index. 
Out of the 4 episodes i have seen i find it kind of boring so far, very cliche and very cheesy. Well til next time cheerio.

Hey!.
I just finally finnished Baccano!. Ive seen the show twice before but never with the specials as well as the rest of the show. 
To be clear here Baccano! is one of my absolute favourite anime shows that i have seen so far in my life. So its a bit disapointing how the specials ends the story. 
its good that some closure is provided but as the vice chief said at the ending to Carol. There cannot be a real ending. 

Questions i had got sort of answered but some werent answered at all. Like whatever happened to Luck Gandor? 
Thats why i give the specials a lower score then the series, mainly because im left with more unanswered questions. Not that i mind too much but i like closure in my shows and such. 

I finnished 2x2=Shinobuden as well yesterday night. Cant say i was too happy about the whole show. It starts out good and all but by the 5th episode its just following a routine that stopped being funny. I rated it 6 out of 10 on MAL (my anime list) It gave me a few good laughs but that was mostly for the great voice acting. The "plot" was just ridicolus in the sense that there were no real plot to speak of. I liked the chracter animations and design tough, really cute with the girls. 

Started watching  Abenobashi Mahou Soutengai today too. i love it so far, really good humour and the characters are good and funny. Looking forward til seeing more of it. 
I relation to my previous statement about how Shinobuden is too random in way thats not too funny, Abenobashi has the kind of random humour i actually like. 
There is a plot here and they do something different rather then repeat the same jokes most of the time. 

Thats it for now. Peace!

Hai guys. 
Not gonna write much really just a short introduction. 
Ive been on the site many times but i dont really pay atention to the comunity stuff, kind of mean like that i guess. 
When thinking about it i should be on here a lot more since i often discuss anime with my friends and such but im here now yes? 
To make one thing clear, most anime fans are either pro dubbing or con dubbing. Im the latter, i almost always prefer the japanese audio with subtitles. 
But then again there are anime shows i couldnt even listen to at all. FLCL is one of the shows i just cant stand cause of the quality of the audio in it. 

I am sure there are good reasons and all but yeah. Enough of that now. 
I took that So you want to date an anime chick. I got 100% with Osaka from Azumango Daioh. I dont mind that, shes a bit dense but like sure why not she can be cute and all. 

well uh, thats all for now. Untill next time people.
