I think that you have to have mindset of not taking it serious, then you'll most likely enjoy. Sure, it isn't a masterpiece. It's just a fanservice show with zombies and that's all.

I used to read it a while back until I had completely caught up. The bad thing is that the gaps were like a month long which is why I lost interest & forgot about it. I'd recommend it to Zombies lovers though.

Who every posted the YuYu Hakusho video made me sad, I miss being a kid watching good cartoons/animes.

Does anyone read History's Strongest Disciple? Its also on Netflix for those who can tolerate the english dub. I will say that Appachi's voice irritates the bloody hell out of me,they make it seem like he's all brawn & no brain..

Fucking tell me about it, my favorite of all time is Initial D, and it only gets a new season every couple years, and even the episodes aren't week to week then! 4th season was 2 eps every 2 months! Funny thing is, manga wise, it only releases 2 tankobon a year It's been 6 years since the last season, I hope season 5 is almost done To it's defense, the fact that 600 chapters amounts to so few episodes says more about the content for a car race than overall lack of content. 600 chapters to about 95 episodes worth of air time is ridiculous.

88 eps, 1 movie(considered season 3!), and a couple OVA's for a series ongoing for the last 15 years! Has to be the most self torturing fan base ever.

It almost sounds like that company has ties with Cashcom...

Wow, the dub for Angel Beats is annoying. I hate that Netflix doesn't let you switch between subbed and dubbed versions.

So do I. There are some anime I want to watch dubbed that are only subbed, and some I want to watch subbed that are only dubbed. Oh well. Its better than nothing.

I don't think so, think it's just a characteristic of the creator to work at his own pace.

Just finished the Last Exile squeal and loved it. 23 eps, just finished this week if anyone who liked the original wants to check it out. Think I remember Near being a fan. Different characters, with some old tie ins. Works well.

Gintama is the most underrated anime ever made. It is hands down the funniest anime you will see, nothing comes close. The action scenes are awesome too when they the anime gets serious. A define must watch.

Yeah, that Yu Yu Hakusho opening is one of my favorites.

Does anyone here reads Battle Angel Alita? It's up there with Berserk as the best seinen manga out there, imo. The Last Order, the sequel/alternative telling to BAA, is pretty good, some stuff is over-the-top and it's currently ongoing, but I recommend reading Battle Angel Alita first so you know who are all the characters and their story.

Also finished watching Spice and Wolf awhile ago. Both the first and second season and I have to say that it's pretty damn good. What made the series so great is the relationship between the main protagonists, Holo and Lawrence. But as you get to learn a little about economics trading.

The story begins with Kraft Lawrence, a 25 year old peddler travelling from town to town selling and buying various things to make a living during a period much like Europe in the Middle Ages. One night when stopped at the town of Pasroe, he finds in his wagon a 250 year old pagan wolf deity girl named Holo. She appears to be that of a 15 year old girl, except for a wolf tail and ears. She introduces herself as the town's goddess of harvest who has kept it blessed with good harvests of wheat for many years. Despite having the responsibility to watch over the town, she wants to go back to her homeland in the north called Yoitsu, she believes the people have already forsaken her anyway and that she has kept her promise to maintain the good harvests. She manages to bargain her way out of the village by making a deal with Lawrence to take her with him. As they travel, her wisdom helps increase his profits, but at the same time, her true nature draws unwanted attention from the church. (Source: Anime News Network)

One thing you tell about the animation is that it's definitely a 2008 anime. The character designs and models are pretty decent, but it's the backgrounds that stand out. When characters are from a distance, the backgrounds look rather peaceful and beautiful. And from the landscapes, you tell that the timeline is somewhere in the Middle Ages.

Onto the characters, all of them feel human and imperfect. Take Holo for instance. She can bewise, playful, and quite sexy. But on the other hand, she can be arrogant, quick to tears, and gets very lonely. She alone is the reason why the series so good. A very well written character. And her english VA does a terrific job in voicing her, big props to Brina Palencia (she voiced Rei Ayanami in the Eva movies). Lawrence, himself, is quite likable. He's the type of character that always wants to make a profit, even though it might get himself into trouble. He truly thinks like a traveling merchant should.

Two things that might turn some people off are: the talking of economics and trading, as that would probably bore some; and side characters that are introduced, are easily gone within two or three episodes.

So in conclusion, Spice and Wolf is great series for people that want a deep romance with two extremely lovable characters. 8.5/10
