1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    They are, save for bitching about individual companies (Tokyopop is a common target).

    I find a lot of their complains about Tokyopop valid, they pull some dumb shit.

    Any more Slice of Life recommendations?

    My favourites so far:

    -Full Metal Panic Fummoffu, plus the non mecha episodes sifted into the regular series
    -Welcome to the NHK
    -Nana
    -Golden Boy


    Azumanga Daioh, if that's your thing.

    (Wow I can't believe I managed to spell that right the first try after all this time).

    Anyone like Hikaru No Go? I love playing go, but I haven't read/seen this series so I'd like to know if it's worth my time/money.

    Anime - No. Manga - Yes. Only if you into Go (game) . I lost interest very fast since i don't know how it works. If you want something different. Claymore is pretty good. It's manga still on going. The anime series is loaded with famous female voice actresses through the industry [​IMG]

    Mmm OK, thanks. I just checked some youtube clips, and it looks a little too Yu-gi-oh but that is probably why you said no on the anime and yes on the manga for me.

    Hey, I've been a slice of life manga kick lately. Everything by the author of Nana is solid. Anything in the semi-French influenced La Nouvelle Manga movement is great... Blue by Kiriko Nananan (a minimalist lesbian romance), A Patch of Dreams by Hideji Oda, but in particular Doing Time by Kazuichi Hanawa which documents the author's imprisonment for possession of explosives. I just read an EXCELLENT graphic novel called Solanin by Asano Inio about ex-musician young adults attempting to navigate everyday life in Tokyo. It's a gorgeous story with gorgeous art. The apparent king of slice of life manga is Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou, but I haven't read it yet.

    k, just binged through all 37 episodes of Death Note on YouTube. Really enjoyed it. Several people have recommended Monster and Code Gaess to me if I dug on DN, which I did. So I'll check them out.

    The Jdrama version was way better IMO but then again I am not a fond of Koreans dramas to begin with. Claymore manga is awesome! Who else is currently watching Sword Art Online right now?:slayer:

    Couldn´t agree more. It´s my favorite anime of all times. Great story, charismatic and really cool characters, the best OST ever heard on any anime. It´s got it all.
