“There are countless ingredients that make up the human body and mind, like all the components that make up me as an individual with my own personality. Sure I have a face and voice to distinguish myself from others, but my thoughts and memories are unique only to me, and I carry a sense of my own destiny. Each of those things are just a small part of it. I collect information to use in my own way. All of that blends to create a mixture that forms me and gives rise to my conscience. I feel confined, only free to expand myself within boundaries.”
Been waiting, but today i’m finally gonna get my Gantz on.
I watched the live action adaptation of “GANTZ” a couple of nights back and have now become obsessed.
It’s pretty amazing stuff. I don’t really want to get into it too much because I’m hopefully going to get a review up on here in a few days and that will detail my new found facination.
However, since my viewing i’m now currently reading the original source manga thanks to an app on my phone. Ain’t technology grand huh? Anyway, I’m now at chapter 131 of the manga and this shit is just insane as it is gorgeous. I’m lovin’ it’s bizarre concepts and dilemmas, as well as it’s ass kicking antics.
I’m still blasting through Gantz manga at the moment. I’ve covered about 100 chapters in 24hrs I think. Right now i’m at chapter 236. Crazy shit like this is happening… It’s is truly awesome.

Hold on. GON - THE SERIES IS COMING OCT 2011!!!!!!
Korea based animation studio Daewon Media has revealed the first footage of its upcoming full CG animation series based on Masashi Tanaka’s acclaimed manga series Gon.
Is it me or does the American Dad episode “Rapture’s delight” blatantly reference Jesus Christ as Kenshiro from Fist of The North Star and no one caught it?
His arrival scene has him enter a bar after roaming the post apocalyptic wastelands of earth similar to FOTNS. The bar is filled with gangs and marauders who look just like the ones in FOTNS. He also arrives cloaked and hooded and his eyes even glow for a moment just as Kenshiro’s did in his arrival scene.
He never hits a Hokuto Hyakuretsu Ken on anyone or anything but it cracked me up that they would reference such a rare gem of animation. Kudo’s to American Dad. They even stuck in some similar music.
Watch the whole episode below if you like. It’s total genius, but the Kenshiro bit kicks off around the 10min 45sec mark I think.
