Only Naruto for me. I watch the show whenever my Cartoon Network doesn't crap out on me. A box set comes out on Tuesday and I pre-ordered it. Yay pervy sage!

Just read volume 12 of the manga this week too. There's a lot of Shikamaru so it was a really good read.

My favorite anime movie is Ninja Scroll. It's too bad the second one sucked. :evil:

I finished Gundam Seed last week. I've heard things about Seed Destiny that make me think twice about picking it up, but I loves me some Gundam, so we'll see. I won't have to really decide until the collection version comes out and I can get the whole thing for $80 or less. I can't afford to pay $20 for 4 episodes at a time.

I'm putting the finishing touches on a MG Freedom Gundam model. It's all assembled, just need to put the labels on it now. It's sitting next to the Gundam Wing custom I built a while ago. I've got 3 more that need some form of repair, 2 more Gundams and a Kampfer. I really only care about the one Super Gundam that Vicki bought me as a present, though, but that one's the hardest to fix, as a transformation joint was broken when a cat decided to see if Gundams really can fly.

I want to get the Aile Strike next.

I don't watch much other anime. I was recording Witchblade off IFC, but after looking at it and thinking about it, it's really not something I want to invest the time in. I loved Samurai Seven, and was meh on Basilisk.

I've watched it and Stargazer. If you enjoyed the first Seed, you'll like Destiny and Stargazer. Destiny does have some fail to it, but not much different then the first, just a little more. BUT, there are some great mechs in it! Then there's Gundam OO. If you liked Wing, you'll love OO.

Cats are :twisted: , aren't they?

Are they all Master Grades? Nice collection there. I've got the MGs of the Gundam (first release), Gundam GP01, Titan Gundam Mk.II (first release), Gundam NT-1, Zeta Gundam (first release) and the Zeta Plus A1.
I'm also after the Aile Strike. The Sword and Launcher version look great, but I'd rather get the Impulse before those.

For me, it's pretty much Macross Frontier, Bleach, Naruto Shippuuden and D.Grey-Man with the odd try of other shows as I wait for the second season of Gundam OO and hopefully a third season of Shakugan no Shana plus the new Mai-Otome/Mai-HIME show to hit.

I'm thinking more and more of getting into Code Geass, it looks so CLAMP good.

Biggest thing that catches my attention is about Hellsing Ultimate and Bleach. Death Note sort of does too but just not as much.

Aye, all MGs. My inner model snob won't let me build anything else. I had some HGs that didn't fare well during a move.

In addition to the Freedom and Wing Zero Custom, I have the MSA-0011 Ex-S Gundam (in need of serious repair), MG RX-78-4 Gundam, and MS-18E Kampfer.

The Freedom is so much larger than the Wing Zero, despite both being 1/100 scale.

I don't know if I'll ever get a Perfect Grade, but maybe as a gift one day.

I just saw the Launcher and Sword Strike...is that two models, or just one with both weapon sets?

I know how you feel. I got spoiled in the eighties with the 1 to 100 scale Zeta Gundam kits. Plus I find that the MG kits are better bang for the buck.

You got the Ex-S Gundam and Kampfer? I'm jealous. :wink:

The perfect grades are to big and costly for my thoughts on it.

They're a single kit, you build one or the other. God I'd love to get that Aile Strike plus the Noir and Strike E.

Have you ever kept the boxes they came in for moves? That's what I do, seems to help, if they fit.

The perfect grades are just goddamn GLORIOUS.


When I ran my LCS, I had a guy who came in, a scrawny, grizzled, biker dude. Bob could have passed for Wolverine, actually, from the Wolverine: The End series. Looked just like him.

Anyway, Bob had two passions. One of them was Gundam. He bought EVERY tape, every kit, and he worshipped his perfect grade ones.

His other passion.... oddly... was Barbie. You should have seen his place, Gundams on shelves on one side of each room, and Barbies on the other. Odd.

Sadly, about a year after I left the company, Bob was in a collision on his bike, and passed away after a week in a coma. Man, I miss him. :(
