    Since Yeahha and me were discussing Manga and Anime a bit too much in Forum Games ,EarlyMon suggested a formation of Okatu Thread .
    Feel Free to discuss Manga and Animes esp. Naruto and Bleach .

    To start the thread ,January should bring the Confining the Jinchuriki Arc with the epic battle of Naruto vs Kyubi ? Any thoughts ?

    Main Mangas/Anime Involved :The Shonen Three (earlier two )
    One Piece

    Alternative Animes :
    Brave 10
    Code Geass
    07 Ghost

    Ahh this means I will have to start watching the anime...:mad::p

    It will be interesting to see if and how they expand on the flashback in battle that details his birth as well as his reaction to meeting the person he does and what he is told about that about them. I could also see a small anime only arc coming up soon since it is not that far behind the manga and 1 episode can span several chapters. I don't think the current manga arc ending too quickly when you think about all that still has to happen in the series

    Just an idea if we discuss anything that is perhaps a spoiler we should put it in hide tags at least if it hasn't happened in the anime yet. I am guessing it will be safe to assume that everything from the anime is fair to discuss in details but for things that have happened in the manga but not anime yet should be hidden if details are given

    Hey, I like the anime, with subtitles. Gives lots of verbal cues, tone of voice, character personality, language nuances - while still making the story accessible.

    Plus - it's anime.

    With manga being drawn in the same style I think you still get a good feel personality as well.

    Personally I can't stand the English voices used in the translations, the Japanese voice actors do a much better job show (IMO) expressing the characters emotions even if I can't understand Japanese compared to the English version.

    Has anyone seen the OVAs or movies? I have seen the first Naruto movie and the first Bleach movie but haven't got around to finding/watching any of the others.

    I've seen the Cowboy Bebop movie, that's it though for me.

    Keep meaning to check out the movies in Crunchyroll - I started one, it was kind of out there - read: pretty cool start.

    i saw the first bleach movie and the last two naruto movies .naruto ova 3 bonds was a nice movie ,clash of two idologies ,naruto's and shikamaru's.
    fourth movie was a bit bland except for minato's green rasengan .(no yellow flash moves in movie though)
    what do you guys think of killer bee's poetry concert .he seemed pretty popular in cloud village

    It's been said (and I once agreed) that Sushi K from Neil Stephenson's Snow Crash is possibly the worst lyricist in fiction - his attempt at a concert left people so incensed that lives were lost.

    I think Killer Bee is actually worse. :D

    There was a Bleach movie? Wow I've fallen way behind lol. I use to watch that anime a lot.

    Yeahha Usually off topic VIP Member

    Yeah there has been more than 1 I believe and a musical :eek: there may be a live action movie release as well which should be interesting, not sure what arc they would try to do my guess is they would start at the begining of the series and go thru the soul society arc until Rukia is saved.

    As far as Killer Bee's rap/poems I haven't seen the anime so I don't know if they do a better job conveying what he is doing better than the manga but it is horrible IMO, I think it is kinda funny when Naruto tries to or has rap.

    The anime for Killer Bee's raps almost hurt! :D

    Near as I can tell, the subtitles are accurate, his delivery is completely narcissistic in tone of voice, and he violates every sense of rhythm in the Japanese language. To make matters worse, he sprinkles in English for street cred.

    I have heard, and even encouraged, some whacked singing in Tokyo bars, and I can guarantee that he sets a new standard for low performance!

    Alright now I am tempted to find it in the anime just to hear it because I am feeling kinda masochistic

    I watch on my phone, with headsets - when his first rhyme came up, I was immediately on the volume buttons with one hand, ripping off my headset with the other.

    Meanwhile - Naruto Shippunden The Lost Tower movie looks interesting, I think I'll see if I can track down a copy to watch on the HDTV. :)

    Bleach marathon on adult swim tonight.

    Happy New Year!

    Thanks for the info guys.

    Earlymon, what time does that Bleach marathon start?
  16. EarlyMon

    EarlyMon The PearlyMon Moderator

    Sorry, it's over already.

    Go for Crunchyroll if you want to watch on your phone, free in the Market, or add dot com to that to find it on the web.

    Japanese with subtitles, but so much better. The adult swim stuff is Americanized, and not just the language dubbing.

    Yeah the localization isn't very good IMO.

    Just finished the 4th Naruto Shippunden movie (interrupted by sleep and a football game but wasn't bad) When watching you have to remember what part of the series it is in. After Jiraiya dies but before Naruto battles Pain. Otherwise when Naruto meets Minato I am sure other questions would have been asked ;)

    Sam-Sung-chan (Samsung)

    H-T-Syee-chan (HTC)

    Elle-G-chan (LG)

    Yeah I saw that as well. Makes me wish I could read Japanese...

    ...Now I hope Apple doesn't own the patent for manga :p

    After seeing the Moto cat ears on Moto-Laura-chan, I really want to match up the characters.

    And Apple-kun is the boy on the left. I like the stem on his head.

    This has got to be a great manga.

    EDIT -

    Apple, Oak tail (??) Fujitsu, LG, Samsung, Sharp, Sony-Ericson, HTC, Motorola

    Yeah I think I could have guessed Moto, HTC, and maybe Samsung for the girls. Apple was pretty easy.

    Have you seen pictures of android-tan?

    I see I have missed a lot of stuff :D .

    Killer Bee is the coolest poet evah !! Just because you couldn't sell a ticket ......Bakayaro Konoyaro :D
    Funny moment Naruto Shippuden Episodio 223 Killer Bee ENKA CONCERT - YouTube

    The Fourth Movie is somewhat before Sasuke Retrival Arc probably just after Hidan and Kakuzu Arc . Third Shippuden is much better than fourth one .

    /manga spoiler
    I am yet to see why Fourth Shinobi War is going to be Kakashi and Genma's .
    Genma's one third FTG ,is good but not impressive enough . And Kakashi looks beat up already.
    The FSWW is practically owned by gaara and oonki .
    Kabuto was looking awesome till Itachi spoiled his plans :D . Now you see why you shouldnt summon someone more kickass than yourself .
    Removing Aizen,Gin,Hollow Ichigo and Zangetsu in one arc doesnt look like a wise decision . I was actually hoping to see Aizen's or Kyoraku's bankai

    /android manga
    that looks interesting :D

    /Naruto shippuden 4th movie
    I am sure it happened after Jiraiya dies since Naruto states his teacher is now dead. Now how it could actually fit is beyond me since after he dies Naruto goes to do the training to gain sage mode then comes back and fights pain right away. But I suppose I shouldn't expect movies to be cannon.

    /manga spoilers
    I think it is theirs because they are now the age their elders were at the time of the last WW...
    Kabuto summoned many many people more powerful than himself he just didn't realize anyone would be able to break out of the summon.

    Yeah I agree if the live action movie goes like I expect it will rush thru many important parts but I really don't think the writers/producers will care. It will draw money and more than likely be made into some sort of love story...Of course I hope I am wrong and just use to American movies based on other forms of media, perhaps in Japan it will be done right.
