I made a second Twitter account just for all my anime, manga, etc. doings. @sotyfan16 is the username.
Blue Gender has a movie that is a re-telling of the series. Though the series is better. And though they are not movies, the Hellsing Ultimate and Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail OVAs are very enjoyable.
Otherwise, horror and such are primarily outside my general viewing. Although, if you want odd and confusing horror then take a look at the series Chaos;Head.
I would be interested. Take a look at my lists here on the site along with my blogs. I started my own video reviews last year though I have note been keeping up lately. Still, I have quite the passion.
I'm interested in hearing about your podcast. PM me if you'd like.
Welcome to the site. I'd suggest some series but PenguinDust has already given you so many and it seems series you enjoy are outside my knowledge and fanbase.
Still, take a look at the Guides on the site and my Dunce Cap blogs to see if there is anything you might like. Feel free to ask me or any other user if you would like more information on shows or have more questions.
There are plenty of comedies that have little to no fanservice. Those series are a bit more character and story driven. Other examples than those stated above are Angel Beats!, Ah! My Goddess, FLCL, Okamisan, S.A., and Maid-Sama.
But like others have stated as well; if you don't like something then don't watch it. There are lots of shows I pass on because they don't fall into the genres I like (even if they are good shows that are largely liked).
I'd keep those cans. But somehow I bet they taste bad.
I'm not good at art so I'm waiting for a partner. I've been working on writing mine as scripts but haven't worked on my main project in a long time. I have about 20 original ideas just waiting for me to get down to business.
I'm an everyday fan. I read quite a few manga, watch a ton of anime (about half the shows that come out each season (which amounts to 10-15 or 40+ a year), and also read and watch a number of hentai.
I don't know much when it comes to authors/illustrators or VAs but I do know a good bit about some dubbing and production companies.
So I guess I'm an expert on certain topics but with the range of material I intake I'm more like a Jack of all Trades. Although, there are a number of titles I've taken to that few on here know about or actively talk about.
I'm amazed at the popularity of the manga. The anime was not good and did some random stuff. Plus, the story went almost nowhere considering what the protagonist wanted to do. I made a blog on my thoughts of the series. You can see it here: Dunce Cap: Kicking Ass With Skates.
I've been meaning to get to your podcast. But I haven't listened to any in almost 2 years and I was listening to ANN and Anime Today for a while before I stopped. With work and trying to do some of my own content I haven't taken to scheduling time for podcasts (much like trying to bring on guests for DC).
Anime comes down to searching. You can have suggestions given to you but it comes down to you actually finding everything you have an interest in.
I watch a great variety of shows so all I can really do is suggest checking out the Beginner's Guide articles on here and my Dunce Cap blogs (where I review various anime and manga).
Night is the original so go with that one. I really liked it. Haven't watched Zero yet.
Viz Media has manga available to read online and with ereaders. However, most if not all of the manga available to read digitally is also available in the physical form (at least for the US). Companies have not yet embraced simulcasting manga. Which is too bad because then many people would be more likely to read the licensed version instead of scans. But I prefer manga in the physical form. I like holding it in my hand and the smell of a new manga. I'll keep reading scans of the latest chapters and unlicensed titles along with licensed ones to see if I want to buy them.
What I think needs to happen though is a merger. I think a 3-way joining of Kodansha, Del Rey, and Yen Press would be a big more forward. I think even more titles would be licensed, Tokyopop's series would be redone, and a good push for a digital simulcasting site would be made. Viz would have to watch its ass.
Then again, I've also felt that the company that licenses an anime should also license the manga. Would be interesting if FUNi got into the manga fray.
If you are watching shows that are a few years old then look into the Beginner's Guides and my Dunce Cap review video blogs. They should help give you more options on what to check out though I've mostly been covering new shows/releases recently due to new purchases. But for your purchases, keep an eye on RightStuf. There are new promotions every week or two and then weekly deals and such. I've started picking up BD for $33. I know many people don't see the point of getting anime on BD but if it costs the same or only a little more I'll get it and I generally only get the DVD version now if that is the only version available.
