I remember there being a large batch of those Shounen Jump t-shirts a few years ago. Some of the designs were glorious and I always regret not getting any.

Nice purchase, SoK.

:toot:


I grabbed this when we were in Japan and our bags got lost by our Russian airline (shocker). Wore it poser style having yet to read the scene in question - was really happy when I got to this moment in the series.


:cry: :cry: :cry: It was beautiful.

Ta :D There are a bunch of those Shonen Jump anniversary designs up on eBay. Some are even at a decent price (that fellowship tee? Someone from Australia is selling it at a ridiculously good price, maybe even cheaper than original price, but it's only available in XS. The Japanese seller I got mine from is pricier, but I think they have more sizes and the postage is cheap, too. A US seller is selling one in XL and the total cost made my eyes water. I still thought about it :slol: but the postage cost was ridiculous. (It was something like $60-80 inc. priority shipping! Channelling their inner Nami, that one.)

Yes! More people need to read Spy x Family.

That and Blue Period are two of the best new series I've read in a long while.

Been watching this, doesn't fully capture the detail of the manga, but it more or less captures the grimy punk aesthetic. Other than that, the writing and world building is pretty good so I would recommend it.

I've put it on the back burner for now as it won't be leaving Netflix (It's a Netflix associated show) any time soon. So I'm going to try and finish off Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood first... right after I'm done watching Hi Score Girl. Again.

One Piece (City of Water): How could they be so casual with all that loot?!! :fp: :x

I'm pretty late to the party, but Erased is on Netflix so I gave it a go. It had its hooks in me from ep 1, which isn't something a lot of series can say!

One Piece (c367 / Rocketman on way to Enies Lobby): Sniper King :lol:

Is that T-Bone guy the next shipmate?

Did the first anime ever actually have an ending?

Though I recall the manga ending being a bit of a downer wasn't it? Didn't the bad guy basically win in the end?

I've got literally no clue, I've only seen about 10 episodes on a knock-off Chinese boxset with aggressively awful English subs. My missus and I still quote it on the regular. :lol:

"Amiditwou in Spring Rain! SUPER BODY!" :slol:

I'm fairly sure nobody was referred to by the same name twice in succession...

Never heard of them. Thought they were fan-made for giggles. Holy gooseberry fool at them actually being broadcast irl. :lol:

Oh God yeah, they were made by a French company called AB Groupe. They were actually responsible for creating the Ocean and Blue Water dubs, albeit using the respective dubbing studios. They went in-house for all the films though, as I'm sure you can tell, and they actually released a few on DVD in the UK. :lol:
