FYI, that link now returns Error 404 - page not found.

Did you look at the date of the post? its from 2 years ago.

Thanx, I missed that. Hmm...people shouldn't post to a 2 yr old thread, gets confusing this way. Should have started a new discussion thread to discuss this year's stuff.

I don't think anyone's mentioned Sand Chronicles.

Or how about Happily Ever After, http://www.amazon.com/Happily-Ever-After-Toshiyuki-Nishida/dp/B001JTTJBC

What's in the uncut version? I don't think I saw that version.

I actually prefer the OVA series SF II V as the best SF anime. The recent one for SF IV wasn't bad too.

I'm not sure about...San Jose...
Yes, there's manga in the San Jose library system, but the selection is still rather limited (although it's expanding).  Worse, somebody keeps ripping pages out of the manga from Santa Teresa library (the library where No Name Anime used to be).  It's not very fun trying to read Battle Angel Alita with several random pages missing, and it was downright frustrating that the climatic conclusion was ripped out of the final volume.  Also, the librarian was saying that the manga tends to fall apart very quickly and needs to be replaced at a very high frequency.  So, I don't have much faith in a large scale physical check-out system of manga working very well.  DVDs are very light and durable compared to graphical novels.


I've experienced the same problems with Alita and other mangas. I wonder who rips out all the pages? I always get a picture of idiot little kids or horny guys who don't know any better or can't fork out a few cents to make a photocopy.

Anybody here think having something like a netflix or greencine service for manga would be a great idea?

I love manga more than anime. The only options I have for reading manga is either buying them, borrow from friends, or checkout from the library.

Buying cost too much if you want to read a lot and then you get stuck with a big inventory you can either keep or sell back.
The folks I know are only into anime, so no source for borrowing :(
Library doesn't have everything and you have to wait in a request queue.

Would be nice if I could use a manga book rental service for reading X many books at a time for X dollars a month. Then I can read all I want and not pay as much or deal with having a big inventory/collection. Wouldn't you agree.

I don't think one exist does it. Be nice to start one, if there was enough supporters (like me) for such a service.
