Why Part VI? Part V had life in it- just look at the 65 page Alien Quadology thread? Oh well- 1st post over here!!

Continuation from Part V...

Wow Domer Pyle, that's rather sickening.


Actually Rob it's quite good. You gotta take the uncooked noodles and break them into little pieces(usually by punching the hell out of the ramen while it's still in the bag), then you open one side(like a bag of chips), pour in the seasoning and mix it all together(closing the open end and shaking the bag, works the best). Also with cooked ramen try beating an egg and putting in the ramen as it cooks...yum...

But anime wise, I found the FLCL BOX SET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Three months I looked for this thing in every store(around me and online). Well today I was driving around and got lost. So I tried to re-orient myself, and went into the parking lot of this shopping center. I was sitting in my car, wondering where the hell I was, then I saw this GameStop. I realized that the McFarlane Matrix figures were out so I decided to go in and see if they had any. I go in, and what do I see? No figures-AT ALL. So as I'm about to leave, then the anime DVD's catch my eye. I stroll over, just to see what they have, then BAM!!! The FLCL Box was staring me in the face!! So I grab it, make the purchase and run to my car. That definately made my day and I can't stop staring at the box! It's just really cool to have all the characters in complete chaos with random guns as the cover art. So that's my day/haul- how was all yours?

It's been a tradition since even before I was in the AAD thread to cap it at 1000 posts. Mostly it's done for archival reasons, IIRC. By the way... I think that's the fastest we have ever gone through a thread, 2.5 months! Whew! Posted Image

Rob:

Takoyaki is a pretty good 'advanced' snack. Obviously in Japan you'd get them grilled, but you can buy the frozen varieties, and microwave them or grill them. I'm not sure what the sauce is, but I usually eat mine without. They also go well in improvised noodle soup (a recipe of mine that gets fairly close to real ramen without actually being real ramen Posted Image). Another one is edamame, which are soybeans, and you can also get these frozen and microwave them, IIRC.

I'm going to make another run to Uwajimaya/Kinokuniya on Saturday. I'm running out of Ramune and Pocky, so I've got to fill up Posted Image.

Hey, Tony, wasn't it you that was talking about getting Akira? Heads-up - rumor on the Blk Friday threads (day after Thanksgiving) is that Media Play is going to have Akira for $9.99
Well, yeah, I wanted Akira. However, I don't have a Media Play around here. Too bad. Posted Image

And the other deals you mentioned sound great too! Dammit! I want a Media Play! I wouldn't use the CD discount for Anime OSTs, that's for damn sure! I'd stockpile on the metal and punk, seeing how I can't stand most anime OSTs! When I drive, I need something fast and heavy, not slow and sappy! I'll take Spineshank, Slayer, Offspring, Jet, etc over Yoko Kanno any damn day of the week! Posted Image

Got lost? Yeah, whatever Eric. Posted Image

Congratulations on finding that box set! Just be happy you had the money with you. I have never had an exciting find like you had, however. Well, the new Spineshank CD was very exciting to get, but probably not as exciting as finding that FLCL box would be. Posted Image

still silently lurking....pay no attention to me.

i did put milennium actress and last exile into my netflix queue (along with some other anime titles).

last exile looks promising...i may want to collect that series. which, along with lain, cowboy bebop, and boogiepop phantom...would bring my whopping series collection to four titles. Posted Image

Dang it, another day, another anime thread.... Posted Image

Well, Rob I posted in the other one, then realized it was SINKING. So after swimming to this one, I will repeat what I said. (with little * bullets. I rule~ )

* NONG SHIM is brand name, like KRAFT or ORE-IDA. The engrish names for these are pretty generic, so just try them. Not all of them are spicy, but many are. Generally, I find NONG SHIM to be the better tasting brand for Ramen. You can also get the NON-cup noodle version and add stuff to the pot while its cooking. Left over meat, eggs, veggies, and of course, Kim Chee - the pickled cabbage dish...

Eric: Congrats on your find. Like Rob, I didn't need to worry since I preordered, but you have quite a find in your hands. Hope you have all your "booklets" too. Posted Image

Ted:
Holy Cow~!!! It's SuperTED! the Master of Testy Thread (well, Steve Christou should get that, along with Jack Briggs and Parker Clack but since you are the only one who posts on this thread (besides the everpresent tony-B) I figured you should ge the thumbs up) Posted Image

You mean the 20-page inserts that contain the production notes and the Young FLCL manga? If so, I have all three of them, but then again, they just came with the DVD- are they rare or something?

Woo: Are you Korean? I'm asking cause you seem to be a master Ramen chef(in that you throw whatever you have lying around in the pot), and you mentioned Kimchee, which mostly Koreans know about. Just wondering.

Comcast added Starz On-Demand here and there's anime on it. Hellsing and some other stuff.

I don't have Starz yet, but I might pick it up once their HD channel starts.

Wow, long time, no see Posted Image.

Woo:

Nong Shim is definitely one of the better 'ramen' companies. I think I'll have to pick up some more when I go tomorrow. BTW, CD Japan shipped my order today (JST). More Ayumi Hamasaki! More Do As Infinity! More R2 DVDs! Woo Hoo! Posted Image

lol, yep, The (ask Zen Butler what that means...or see the testy thread) is still lurking. you guys may not know it, but i've been lurking for the past few iterations of AAD. i just can't keep up with you guys, but i like to hear what you have to say. it helps keep me current and helps me to decide what anime is worth checking out.

so, chatter on...and know what evil lurks around the corner.

Since FLCL because so popular, they have stopped printing them (so that they can make more DVDs... SP is a VERY small company).

So, if you have a booklet, you have a collector's item now Posted Image

(damn, that is addicting- gotta stop Posted Image )

By the way, as my location suggests, I live in NYC ( currently in Manhattan) Where are you located??

* By the way thanks for the new idea for my sig.... :wink:


Yeah - the booklets are collector's item. After the show aired On Cartoon Network's Adult Swim (dubbed) twice, the demand just shot up and BAM! it was decided that booklets would be made available via the 'Net by Synchpoint.
