      First and foremost thanks for the comments, I’m getting some constructive criticism which is always a good thing. I’m a pretty strong soul, so by all means yell to your hearts content if you feel that there’s something I can improve on and such. Also, thanks for those of you that have helped out with emailing me as well, its a big help and I appreciate it.

      A lot of good series are getting some well deserved OVAs, I myself can’t wait for Seto no Hanayome. I still haven’t had the time to watch Tsubasa Chronicle yet (slaps myself) so I’ll probably hold off on the OVAs for when I have time to marathon the whole thing. As for Black God, I don’t know about you guys but I’m getting Shana vibes from the first few screenshots. Might just be me, I don’t have my glasses handy ^^’. Moving on to manga a few titles have been finished, but a few new ones have emerged in their place. Death Edge seems like a typical generic action manga, but it seems like its worth looking into. I’m also glad at how Crunchyroll is continuing to handle relations with some big name companies. It seems that since after their partnership with Gonzo (Druaga, Blassreiter, Sky Girls) companies are becoming less hesitant at using streaming sites as a marketing tool. Seeing Digimon Adventure 02 on the list brings back the memories of good ol’ Saturday mornings too. The whole story involving the 3 people who stole the Dragon Ball vending machine made me and Omni giggle, so what the heck!

      Death Edge looks interesting. The three arrested people are pretty pathetic…

      Seto no Hayame’s OVA is a very new new.

      Just read the Seto no Hanayome OAV website and, oh my, is it just me or are they increasing the Fist of the Northstar references?

      its not that i m not happy that seto no hanayome is getting a ova but i m wondering why just an ova why not a 2nd season is there a lack of material for the second season?

    • October 29, 2008 at 9:44 amIlias

      Yeah, instead of OVAs give us a second season already. The show is hilarious, the face-expressions are first class. GIEF 2ND SEASON

    • October 29, 2008 at 7:01 pmFalenXangel

      I love your pic =)

      Why would anyone steal a DBZ vending machine (gachapon?) it doesnt cost that much anyways…

    • October 29, 2008 at 7:53 pmasdf

      LOL dragon ball vending machines o_O

    • October 30, 2008 at 4:39 amHarper_meister

      Well, they must of had balls to do that (groan…)

      They could’ve at least got it home and used it as furniture; there wouldn’t have been any evidence then. But maybe the guy and the kids argued about who actually got the machine at the end of the day. Baka’s.

    • October 30, 2008 at 8:20 amShippoyasha

      I’m pretty excited that Precure will FINALLY be getting a proper westernized release.

    • October 31, 2008 at 1:12 amHighman

      Give me alot of feeling on Black God storyline, doesn’t seem the fit as Keita to be Schoolboy instead becoming this freelance video game designer grown up, but love the animation and so I’ll give a definetly watch and We will enjoy you Sixthdawn my man!

    • October 31, 2008 at 1:47 amMo

      Looking forward to Black God. I just hope they don’t ruin it to much, I mean from what I can tell they made Keita a second year high school student.

    • October 31, 2008 at 6:11 pmChiisai

      Ahhh, such lovely Soma x Allelujah fanart!
      I’m looking forward to ×××HOLiC Shunmuki.
