    This is the Anime and Manga thread, up to version 35. This is a place to give reviews, look for suggestions, and discuss whatever you may be watching/reading.

    If you are new to these threads, then welcome. We've been a fixture of the Mayberry for closing in on five years now. There are a bunch of well informed regular posters, and people are more than willing to give suggestions. The one thing to keep in mind: there have been over 34,000 posts in these threads talking about well over a thousand different titles. It would be impossible to list everything in this OP, so I've decided to a list the works that are among the most often recommended. Please feel free to bring up anything you'd like, but remember, just because it isn't in the OP doesn't mean nobody else likes your favorites.

    Streaming Video (Hulu/Crunchyroll/etc)
    Many good shows are available through video services such as Hulu and Crunchyroll (Netflix used to be a good source for anime, but they've dropped most of their library in the last year or so). The following are links to some of the better series available. If you have anything you think should be added, mention them or PM me, and I'll add them to the list (please include the URL).

    News and Information
    There are quite a few good sites to get news and information about anime/manga. Here are some of the most useful:
    Anime News Network - Also referred to as "ANN", this site has lots of headlines, season previews, video releases, and other such info
    Baka-Updates Manga - This site is an excellent resource for looking up information on manga. It has author info, series ratings, and release info on scanlation progress.
    My Anime List - A useful resource that allows you to track what you've watched and give a score or review.
    Anime Database - Good research tool for finding series, with searches by genre, production studio and more. Also lists fansub groups who may be working on a title.

    Can't tell ya, since its licensed and every manga site I've checked has only acquired 15 chapters in total. Its sold over 155 million copies making it #6 of best selling mangas.

    The reason I won't recommend it is because I don't know so much about it. As there is very little to go on. There's an anime that is placed 36 in TV Asahi's top 100 anime, if you wish to check it out.

    Its about this guy btw...

    The guy that appeared in almost every credit page of Shueisha manga.

    Ask JBS? The guy knows almost every manga that has ever been created.

    No clue on this one. I've never bothered looking it up (comedy manga never work for me, I can't think of a single one I've tried that I really loved).

    On the topic of Kochikame, to my knowledge it's like the Simpsons except instead of a family it's a group of police officers and their friends and relatives and the hijinx they get into except as far as I know managing to maintain the magic, i.e. not going stale and shit.

    I also looked for info on an Aijin anime and I couldn't find shit most likely a fake, shame they need to make a One-punch man anime already. Also doesn't Spring start in March? I doubt they can properly animate shit in two months unless is gonna be a fuckin power point presentation.

    that would be a great season if it would be real. It isn't. No One Punch Man, no Claymore, no Dark Souls.

    The real anime chart for spring 2015:
