Re: Which anime/manga You liked most?

For me, the best manga series are Gunnm and Berserk. However, I also greatly enjoy series like Gunsmith Cats, One Piece, Yu Yu Hakusho, Flame of Recca, Hellsing, and MPD Psycho. As long as the story is captivating enough, I'll check it out. As for anime, I've always been partial to old school stuff,...

Re: The WORST manga you have ever read/warnings

I saw a complete collection of Wounded Man at a half-priced bookstore for dirt cheap, and decided to buy it. I had recognized the artist as the guy who drew Sanctuary. Holy fuck was it terrible. I mean, it has a nonsensical plot, awful characters, and the translation I had was pretty bad. The gramma...

Re: This forum really died.. NEW TOPIC (off topic to BAA)

As a semi-closeted fan of One Piece, I'll put in my 2 cents. First, I'll just mention that I cannot stand to watch the anime. The pacing is terrible, the animation is uneven in quality, and many of the fights that lasted maybe 4 pages in the manga have been stretched to fill up entire episodes. It w...

Re: Cameron's Upcoming Projects aka Gunnm's film

But back to reality, I honestly believe Cameron could do a good job on a Battle Angel movie, but right now he seems more interested in mak...

Re: Cameron's Upcoming Projects aka Gunnm's film

No one man can direct this movie. I suggest we conjoin Terry Gilliam and Francis Coppola and release them only upon completion of the film. Tercis Coppilliam will be the greatest director of all time! Or maybe Guillermo Del Craven. Or J.C. Nolbrams. Lets just hope the dreaded Uwe Bay doesn't do it.

Re: Cameron's Upcoming Projects aka Gunnm's film

It would be hilarious to see Gunnm characters doing long Tarantino monologues. And his preference for spaghetti-western and 70s music would make for an ass kicking soundtrack. I was thinking about this thread earlier and remembered a director I had totally forgotten about: Paul Verhoeven. He's done ...

Re: Cameron's Upcoming Projects aka Gunnm's film

I think J.J. Abrams would do an excellent job with a Gunnm screenplay. However, I don't think any movie or trilogy could do the series justice no matter who did it. On the other hand, any publicity is good publicity. I'd love to see an over-sized, glossy printing of the graphic novels, kinda like wh...

Re: When GLO will start again?

I don't understand why people seem to think that Gunnm will discontinue. Now, I'm not expert on manga publications, but can't he simply jump ship to another publisher? I mean, it seems that Kishiro owns Gunnm and should be able to have it published somewhere else, especially if it has enough native ...

Re: Help me out, esteemed peers! I need comics!

If you're looking for a good brain-food comic, try reading The Invisibles by Grant Morrison. I will give you some warning though: this comic will mess with your mind like nothing else.

Re: GLO100

Perhaps Kishiro can just jump ship to Shounen Jump and reboot the series again as an endless tournament manga, GUNNM: LETS FIGHTING LOVE! Though, at least even with this speed bump, GUNNM is coming out faster than Berserk. I think we got a whole 4 chapters or something last year. If Kishiro takes up...

Re: Battle Angel The Movie ...FROM HELL!!!

Cameron falls ill and gives the directing helm to M. Night Shyamalan who makes a twist ending where all the events were just the dream of Gally the cat who is owned by a guy who looks like Ido, but he's actually an Amish craftsmen who sees dead people and is secretly a super hero. The end.
