I saw it was licensed, but I didn't know it was going to be in Shounen Jump. I haven't read a Shounen Jump in years. The first chapter is massive, so I would assume that they would cut it into parts. This is something I wouldn't mind picking up. That would make the total of mangas I buy to 3, that, REAL, and Slam Dunk. Prior to those 3, I only picked up GTO. All in all, if you guys are looking for something interesting to read to fill the void when waiting for DMWL, Soul Eater, Bleach, and Naruto this is worth a peek. It reminds me of Erementar Gerad, except it doesn't blow.

Theres not a lot of basketball playing, considering its classified as a sports manga. So that let that deter you from reading it. I love it since its gritty and down to earth. Everything that happens in it, can happen to anyone.

I'll put up the spoiler just in case Keith hasn't read it yet.
1- Who thought that Nagi was that fucked up? I know I didn't.
2- I'm a little concern how Senji is going to help Ganta train. I hope its not like every other shounen manga.
3- At first I got confused with Mockingbird and Hummingbird. Wonder how she'll play a role in this.

New episode of Dragon Ball here. You need to download the player but it's subbed. The One Piece and Tegami Bachi specials are up there, too.

They also have a nasty Bobobo parody of Death Note http://www.jumpland.com/mangaonline/.../index_en.html

Lupin III: Green vs. Red




This is one heck of a confusing movie. After Lupin III retired (disappeared?), several fake Lupins pop up all across the world. After one of them shoplifts, they converge in Japan to clear the good name of Lupin. Eventually there's a showdown between a Lupin in red and a Lupin in green. One of them might be the real one but I couldn't tell.They never did say who was the real Lupin was but according to some blogs it was red. Aside from the giant robot and blatant McDonalds product placement, the animation was beautiful.


Grade: C-

I think it was a stab at the Lupin franchise. If I remember correctly, the manga version, Lupin had the red coat and in the anime Lupin had the green coat. There was a whole story about the red/green coat, but I can't remember.

I ordered parts 1 and 2 of G Gundam last night. The Deep Discount sale ends today if you want to join in on the fun.

I would also like to remind you Gundam 00 premieres of Sci-Fi tonight.

He wore the red jacket in the second series (the one that was on adult swim) and in several movies.
