  1. i shall recomend you one more anime- Sora no otoshimono if you are intrested ceck my topic in the anime and manga categories
  2. Fell free to discuss any subjects regarding this anime. So far this masterpiece is up to become my favorite. Maybe i will manage to make some of you,non believers :embarrassed: a bit more interested in this work of art guys will probably love this for the amazing accuracy of the anatomic details of a full bloomed girl :dreaming: but this the main source for the comedy also. Girls , who probably love a good love story will probably apreciate these series too. The "forbidden love" motif its highly developed in this story, and whit a bit of supernatural and ordinary love issues in a teenager's life you will obtain the perfect mixture. Personally, I loathe the fact this anime has only few episodes.This story its highly addictive and has lots of potential . If there will be a new sequel, something similar whit Naruto Shippuden, witch is also a very successful story will make the hearts of those who were literaly living inside the action to rise up in the heavens once more.
  3. i always dereamed about emo ham... it cuts iteself in perfect slices
  4. just make a few ppl watch : Full metal panic! (about 50romance/comedy 50% action) Full metal panic!-fummofu(80% comdey/romance and 20% action) Full metal panic!-the second raid (80%action 20%... u know what i mean the ova is 100% comedy and romance My job here is done... i can die in peace now
  5. Well this thing you'r about to see its not even a bit more "ecchi" then the actualy B&S animations, but its way funnyer Its the best stuff I've ever seen in anime, and the mech's AI is killin me... I wll not let you wait anymore , heres a sample of the Full Metal Panic epicness For the ones who didn't saw this anime, let me explain the situation: -that girl is the supreme commander, thus she is very young -she is in love whit him. she is simmilar to hinata -she tasted a bit of alcohool last night (prolly first time hard drinking) -the solider(its the main character) was highly trained to be a military(since 7 yrs old) -he was threaten by some of his superiors, if he will doo somthing "dirty" well the martial court is waiting him (lt. cln. Mardukas- for the knowers) -he is also a bit of personality damaged because the war, and staring at the coomarades' dead bodies -the mech has a highly inteligen AI that seems to be turned on troll mode what else can I say... :what: :adore: :love:
  6. @ kin: no i dont smoke and i never will.
  7. Shoot me now!!! i fail at the GPU chapter
  8. Hi all i just want to say goodbye for all those who socialised whit me on these boards...i found out that my PC cant run B&S so i think I will be trying to forget anything that is related to B&S ... i got a few problems and getting new parts,(propper GPU, especially) its very hard to achieve, for the moment ... Im a student even whit my job i can barely pay the rent, food and others... so i guess ill see you(hope so) in a few years when B&S will be released and ill afford everything in order to play it. Feel free to criticize me
  9. o srry i was thinking at totally other thing my video board is ATI Radeon 2600 PRO
  10. Direct X 9
  11. can we use a space in our character name?
  12. well i got this PC Intel cored 2 duo CPU E4500 @ 2.20 GHz 2.00GB of RAM will this run B&S properly? This used to run AION perfectly back in the day
  13. I am blessed whit a videogame retailer uncle. he is also a big fan of B&S and getting that game will be really easy because he would prolly give me one as a gift :smooth:
  14. Title says all, ill spice things up whit a poll . Fans... I'll set the life of this topic on your hands
  15. id like the game content(item names, interface , skill names etc.) to become english but the story videoclips should be subbed and the npc creatures and areas to be kept
