Nana's a pretty good anime. Especially for a slice of life.
I actually prefered the anime to the manga. The battle royale manga is still to be topped in my mind.

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

Nana or Gantz? I haven't checked the manga at all. I'm enjoyed the anime a bit too much right now to confuse myself trying to do both of them at the same time.

lol the sphere isn't explained until you get into the 300s i believe. i literally just read everything in the last 3 days while i was off work.
oh yeah, an explanation for what is happening to all the dead people should be explained soon.

@loopee: the gantz anime was rushed because at the time of its release the manga was still on at least the 3rd volume. the situation is similar to the how the original full metal anime was released. when manga writers don't feel like writing filler after filler they just give the anime an alternate ending.

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

I heard Gantz is better in the manga, but yeah if it isn't that good then I would avoid reading the manga as well. I certainly can't see it being as good as Akira or Battle Angel Alita.

Well, starting watching Spice and Wolf season 2 again. Stopped watching because of I playing so much of Mass Effect that it got in the way of my anime watching. And Horo or Holo is still the best thing about the series. Seriously, she's becoming one of my favorite female characters in general.

Battle Royale? That's the one were all those kids think they're going on a field trip but end up getting knocked out, and sent to a Island to fight for their lives? If so, I watched the live action of the movie on youtube. 1 and 2, the movie kind of gave me a bad vibe for some reason. Watched them a while back so I don't remember exactly how they went down. Just remember a lot of peeps being scared for their lives.

Yea that's battle royale, not a nice premise I'll give you that. Scary thought but damn good manga and damn good movie(the first one)

What I would say about Gantz is give all it's incarnations a try and see what you prefer. For me the manga started off great and went on far too long I gave up. It makes an anime adaptation that has a limited amount of episodes impossible to translate. The movies are entertaining but of course it doesn't have everything the source material has (I hate when people complain about that, how could it possibly fit everything in) the anime is excellent in its first season but kind of falls away. The good thing is the anime is short (30 something eps I think) Speaking of short anime, one of my favourite is elfen lied which has this reputation of being the most disgusting, distasteful anime in history but although there is a lot of blood and death it has a warmth and a heart to it. It's only 13(i think) episodes and I love it, it's a weird mix of sweet, heartwarming drama and just devastating destruction.

I thought Elfen Lied was one of the best love stories in anime, but that's just me.
