Oh god,  To Terra was awesome.. my first foray into truly old school anime (well I lie, I watched a good 35 episodes of Oniisama E which is also old school) but I sat down with the first volume of Black Jack and I have to say one word.

Damn!

I must own this entire series!  No really.

I love love love love love this series, and I love Black Jack, I like House yes, but I can see why Japan thinks of House as the japanese Black Jack,   But I'm just entranced by this book series, I love him.. the look of him, the fact that he has a handicap (a very major one too.. or at least a dashing scar). and I love that he does the surgeries that other people don't want leaked, and he charges like EXORBITANT prices for it. (90 million YEN.  I mean this is back in the seventies too.. so do the math)

I think I can justify ordering the series as it's a strong old school manga that's very compelling and while the artwork is dated, the story is very enjoyable and translates well to this modern time.

ORDERING THE REST NAO!

This is just a reference, because sometimes I really do forget random things like that.   I realize that this will take me years to probably watch these, but I don't mind being behind in the times.   At least I'm not keeping track with J-pop  (which in the past year I've been horribly disenchanted with, to the exception of the Macross Frontier songs which are charming)

So Friend's List, that being said.  I have a question!   Is there any series, fandom, pairing or just anything in general that you used to like but you've become increasingly disenchanted with?   ( I know you all have them)

I have also been disenchanted toward the Bleach & Naruto thing.  I mean I still like the characters but as far as watching it.. I lost my will to do that a LONG time ago.  I don't think I'm able to watch series that are longer then 59 episodes anymore -and even that is pushing it-
