Marchingmule, maybe you like Baccano!

EDIT: Obviously for the above reasons you mentioned regarding Anime.

And if you like Baccano, you'll like Durarara.

Hrmm....I know Baccano and Durarara are on my list to check out, so it's good to see people recommending them. I actually own Claymore but haven't put it in yet. I'm a little behind on the queue. Probably going to check Persona out next for the same reason I checked out Toradora!

Dark and never too overly dramatic, it was an enjoyable watch through all 26 episodes.


thats great to hear, i was looking at that one since its available in blu ray

but id never heard anything about it. I also love evangelion so ill check out the first couple episodes and probably buy Claymore.

I was considering upgrading to the blu ray for Claymore, but I'm not sure if it's worth it since I hear it's an upscale from standard def material. Maybe if I watched the DVDs and love em to death, I'll grab the Blu Ray somewhere down the line and give the DVDs to my sister or some friends. It's what I've been doing with some of my upgrade stuff recently. The content gets pretty good reviews from some of the folks I trust though. Maybe since the game I run is canceled tonight I'll start it and Persona.

The review I read on the Claymore upscale was that some detail was lost, but it looks better overall. Basically boiled down to a no-brainer for the blu ray if you don't already own it. Take it with a grain of salt, however, since it is a single person's opinion, after all.

That sucks about the FMA brotherhood audio. Getting HD audio was the reason I bought Ponyo on blu ray from Japan instead of the US. This kind of stuff pisses me off, though I realize the marketing departments over here probably see me as a minority right now.
