What I Like: Anime and Manga

7 Sep

My first serious encounter with anime is Slam Dunk, which I watched after a relative gave me the whole box set. I loved every minute of it.  8 years on, the anime I have watched isn’t very extensive, but I’ve watched most of the ‘mainstream’ ones. I’ve only begun to read manga 2 weeks ago, after I found an easy way to download and read manga on my phone.

I’ve created a page up there ^ to keep this anime and manga list updated. Please feel free to recommend me more!

Slam Dunk
Full Metal Alchemist
Full Metal Panic
Mobile Suit Gundam 00
Trinity Blood
Afro Samurai
Samurai Champloo
Death Note
Cat Shit One
Hajime no Ippo
Prince of Tennis
Gintama (could not get into it; stopped at around ep. 30)
Dragon Ball Z (whenever it was on TV)

New Prince of Tennis
Witchcraft Troops
Zippy Ziggy
Ironfist Chinmi (aka Tekken Chinmi)


You're not Asian if you don't read Manga

31 Aug

I’ve been watching anime for a while now. Not a huge amount, but some of the more popular ones like Naruto, Bleach, Full Metal Alchemist, Slam Dunk, Prince of Tennis etc, but I’ve never been one to read manga because it’s so expensive for English translated volumes.

But after seeing my Mum’s Kindle which arrived just yesterday, I’ve been thinking how convenient it would be to be able to read manga and comics on my iPhone. So after some research, I’ve found a great app – Manga DL – to download scanlations of manga, and it works great!

But there are literally thousands of manga to choose from, and I don’t know where to start. At the moment, I have The New Prince of Tennis downloaded, as I enjoyed watching the original anime.

Anyone have any recommendations?
