Read the chapters of the manga Viz posted online and enjoyed them. Will give the anime a chance.


#3

I saw a spot for this during Brotherhood tonight. It doesn’t look bad at all.


#4

Agree the spot looked good.


#5

I don’t watch Adult Swim on Saturdays anymore, but I will probably record this one and give it a try. I’ve heard mixed things about it, but those are usually the AS shows I like the most. :stuck_out_tongue:


#6

Meh. I saw the spot, too, and I’ll probably give it a try. I have trust issues with AS, so it’s difficult for me to get excited about anything they show. At least if they drop it mid-run, it’s available subbed on Hulu.


#8

I’m gonna assume this will be airing either before of after FMA:B. Either case that means everyone’s gonna have of full hour of Vic Mignogna. Not that’s that bad or anything, but too much of a good thing can be bad for one’s health: like alchohol or…um…sushi.


#10

Reminder!

[size=16]Kekkaishi[/size] premieres

Saturday night after FMA:B

on Adult Swim


#11

this will be the first time I watch AS for a whole hour in a long long time :slight_smile:


#12

I might watch this I just hope my TV starts to work right… I’m have channel black outs.


#13

Not a bad first episode. It’s already a battle of the sexes! :lol:


#14

i need a recap… i fell asleep watching it…
damn me and my tired ass!!

yoka


#15

Watched the first episode and liked it.


#16

I’ll keep watching wish it was on at midnight so I could be kept awake by it and put to sleep by the ever boring FMA Blahterhood.

Dub cast was good I did not recognize them at first then realized towards the end who they all were. SYFY should have picked up this instead of Monster.


#17

I enjoyed the first episode. I like the interaction between Yoshimori and Tokine. It should be fun to watch.

Come on PP, Monster is a great series.

I’ll probably try to watch this sometime this week, once it’s on AS’ site.


#20

I enjoyed the first episode. I think that this will be a nice partner show for FMA:Brotherhood. Glad to have something new on TV.


#21

Episode 2 -

[details=spoiler]Yoshimori is worried about being “creepy” and he seems surprised that Tokine is so popular. She’s described as the ideal girl by his classmates and even some of the male teachers admire her too. Yoshimori may have some competition!

But I like the way that Yoshimori tries to protect her from being hurt when they fight. And this time, Tokine sends him a special ointment for his injuries. They really have a special relationship.[/details]


#22

Ep. 2

I don’t think she truly realizes how much he cares for her. He would give his life for her.


#23

Yes, I agree with you ShawnMerrow -

I think that’s why he’s also so determined to make a cake castle. It’s for her!
