    I thought it was an excellent film. The animation was outstanding compared to most of the crap i've been watching lately. The story was good enough to keep me entertained and interested. I also watched claymore recently, which i also thought was a great series (though the ending made me angry, iso another season :x:) Anything yall can recommend based off me enjoying these two series? Thoughts on the movie? etc

    I loved black lagoon as well.

    And yeah, the general premise of the story in claymore was great, loved the animation. The ending sucked though, that's why i wish they would come out with a second season and wrap that shit up.

    really, they should have waited till around now to do the first season. The manga just gets more and more epic.

    in absolute terms? Not really that much. But you know how Raki turns into a whiny son of a bitch at the end of the anime? Yah, instead of that, in the manga, he turns into a badass like Guts in Berserk. And it goes WAY beyond the anime chronilogically.

    Other than that, the biggest difference is that Clare and Raki don't/haven't met up yet.

    Kenshin Remniscience is the epitome of anime excellence. To tell a story as good as that one in only 4 episodes is pure mastery.

    I watched kenshin but not the OVAs, so I'm downloading that now. I've seen all the others mentioned.
