    Also, most of the series I've read would get me very weird looks in public, as well.

    Not so much the ones I own physical copies of, though. though codename sailor v might warrant some double-takes given its sparkliness

    Oh, Negi's "10" the whole time, but he does get smarter and more mature. It just takes a while because he's so naive. He does a lot of growing up and maturing at an age where most of us have no idea what the hell's going on. I could give you a spoiler or two to entice you, but I don't know how you are with spoilers. Early on, I was letting it slide because FANSERVICE (aka PLOT as opposed to plot), but then he started maturing through his magic. He's also not as stupid as your typical shonen protagonist, or for that matter your typical harem guy.

    Yeah, try it out. The Vampire of Sakura Lane mini-arc was only halfway done when you dropped out, and there's another arc that follows maybe two chapters after that ends and goes on until about chapter 53. With the characters introduced, the interpersonal relationships of the characters start to develop in preparation for the next arc, which gets into full swing around chapter 80, and spirals upward into the heavens from there, and that arc lasts 50-80 chapters, while the final major arc lasts from chapter 130-160 or so until chapter 317, I think. Then it's the wind-down chapters that leave room for an open-ended ending because Akamatsu quit writing due to both an expiring contract with Kodansha and the fact that he was trying to stop an ordinance from getting passed in Tokyo placing tighter restrictions on manga content, in particular the kind he's made a living out of writing (as they would be damaged by the blast radius of that ordinance, though not quite the intended core target).

    Well, when I started, it was a Ken Akamatsu series, which I liked because I had previously liked Love Hina, and it had fanservice and comedy, which were my two main criteria in a series at the time. It developed an action-y component focusing on the magic and the more stereotypically shonen elements of the plot later on. It's kind of a slow starter, as the author kinda had to mask it as a harem series to get it published even though he wanted to make a more action-y story. The early chapters basically just introduce all 31 female students and a few other characters, 90% of these characters getting at least a chapter's worth of attention. You actually ended up cutting out just before some serious action starts kicking in. There's some lulls in the action after another 30 or so chapters, and that lasts, with some interruptions, until chapter 80 or so, and then there's near constant action all the way until the end of the series.

    However, it's also loaded with fanservice and magical girl show elements, so it's gonna get you weird looks from people and teasing from your friends if you read it in public.

    Not really a fan of Fairy Tail at all, I think it's pretty awful actually. Plot is inconsistent and boring and the art is not for me, most of the time. Pains my heart to hear people say it's just like One Piece, really.

    The show does throw up the odd character I like but that's hardly because she's a well made character.

    Also why is everyone Jellal?

    Gundam seems ok, apparently some series in the franchise are amazing and others are awful. The first one was decent enough so I'll stick with it. Will probably take a couple of years do get through them all though.

    Versailles is very good, I'm a big fan of these older shoujo series so I don't know why I've been putting this off for so long.

    Fairy Tail has the worst animation of them all. The attacks look like they've been taken from Pokemon.

    I've been getting through some older shows from my backlog recently, Rose of Versailles, Mobile Suit Gundam, Onii-sama e, all good cartoons. When I'm finished with Versailles in 4 or 5 hours time I'm thinking about starting Nana.

    Yeah, some teams sacrifice detail for smoother animation, some do the opposite. In the parts of the story that don't mean a lot they sometimes put out bare minimum everything. It's a shame but as long as the best scenes look good I'm happy.

    I will say at least it didn't fall as far as Naruto has. Seriously Shippuden looks like western cgi animation sometimes.

    Art consistency and animation has always varied in the anime. It's the fate that befalls all long anime series as they have different teams working on them at different times.

    Maybe! :P You tell me if having the entirety of it's English dub anime releases as well as the entirety of the spinoff manga series makes it a favorite, haha.

    That looks pretty freaking enticing.

    I've had ridiculous amounts of work to do sorry, I've barely had a chance to think about it haha. Doing two 3,500 word lab reports in one week is harrrdddd ;; I've only got one piece of work to do over the weekend but until then I'm swamped so I should be able to post Friday night. Sorry!

    Why yes, I do! I have all but 3 of the volumes in English, and 2 of them are because they aren't out in English yet (the other is because I thought I had volume 35 already so I bought 36 instead).

    You really want to have RWBY released, don't you? :P
