My Zelda manga hasn't arrived yet - been delayed so a couple more weeks to wait.

Also, never been to a comic con before. Anyone fancy going going to the London Super Comic Convention on March 15-16? Could be a chance for Tappy to wear one of his outfits! :P Discounted tickets through Amazon Local: http://local.amazon.co.uk/Thames-Valley/B00I9A6XTA

It's the pure comic one and it actually seems too geeky for me! And I'm not sure what happens there, but it's only £14... and close to the house.

The main trouble is that I just haven't fine tuned my Sinestro costume yet! And after dressing up as Snorlax for the PokéCon, I have 200kg of weight to lose.*

Go on Taps, you know you want to. ;) Too geeky? Never.*

*Actually, maybe, but as a n00b I'm sure they'll be kind to me... :?

Goodo! Got another mate wanting to go also. I'll get the tickets once he's confirmed or not. Anyone else??

Used to watch loads of Anime, and just found a website called Crunchyroll.

Wow, great service! £5 a month, like the Netflix of Anime. Started watching Attack on Titan. Onto Episode 4, really good so far...

Yeah, crunchyroll seems to be good. I think I linked to it on my first post. Was watching attack on titan and got to the half way recap episode but been really busy lately so not been able to watch the rest. I've only got a free acc with them but adblocker plus works well in disabling the ads. There's also a mobile app and ps3 app - the latter only works for premium members I think.

Might try sword art online next.

I have a fairly large collection of all of this :)

I would recommend Cowboy bebop, ghost in the shell SAC, Samurai Champloo and well anything studio ghibli..
Yeah!

Any dark/ horror type series you recommend Toddie?

Along the lines of Elfen Lied?

Can say that the Crunchyroll phone app ties in well with the online account. Watched a bit of an episode of AoT on my phone and then when I went to watch the rest on my laptop it started automatically at the point I had got to on my phone (or about 5 seconds before which I thought good). Suppose that's how all multi-playform streaming sites should work I guess but I've never really used any before!

And re AoT itself: not liked the change in intro music from ep 14 - sounds like some sort of Eastern block national anthem parody! :lol: Enjoying it though. Three left to watch.

Not really my cuppa tea for dark / horror.

That said I do have a few movies, Blood The last vampire, Vampire Hunter D.

Mention for Gunslinger Girl as well. That's a pretty dark series....
Yeah!

My Zelda manga arrived the other day. Not cracked open the cellophane yet. My next Dragonball compilation should arrive next week too.

Refrained from buying some Adventure Time when in town also. It just looks so cooool! :D /12yearold

My sister just sent me a picture of a newspaper advert for a new Studio Ghibli film call the The Wind Rises that's out tomorrow. Last film from Hayao Miyazaki. I've still not got round to watching any of them. Looks pretty good and got some glowing reviews.

Yes, I need to watch that.
