Negima!? ended quite some time ago leaving me with little negima love.  Even though i bought negima volume 17 in japanese i want to buy 18 now.

Still, the Negima!? anime did have a very good ending and the negima manga is still going strong. i wish there were many more anime/manga like this.

I have registered this blog at the Technorati website which is an community of blogs it seems. This website rank blogs on how well they are known or how many people have linked to your blogg. I don't really think that this a point. I mean ranking the ranking is just to satisfy peoples urge to be known. 
One of the things i think is worst with Technorati though is that people can steal your blog. although it is quite secure it's still possible. but anyway if they do know your password they can probably change it so you don't get access anyway. Yeah technorati can help you get known but it's hell to navigate the site. i would rather register my blog at Tokyo pop because that is a community just for manga/anime. Still i guess some people like technorati. And it's probably good for those who don't have specialised community. 

Also i think that Deviant art which has a kind of blog tool (a little more too but it's kind of the same as Tokyo pop) is much easier to get known because it's so much easier to browse stuff there.

Looking more into Technorati i see that only the most popular blogs are featured on the front page which don't seem right to me. why should the most popular people get that space? why not people who need it more?
if i had to choose between Technorati and Tokyo pop i would definitely gone with Tokyo pop because it much easier to navigate. people find you allot easier. (after i registered 3 people added me as "Fan")

Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu

Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu illustrated by Tsugano Gaku.
Suzumiya Haruhi is an adaption of the novel about Suzumiya Haruhi by Tanigawa Nagaru. I haven't read the manga but i feel that the Anime is the same since they both are adaptions.  This anime would seem like a comedy at the start and is kind of like that throughout, but it really has a great philosophical theme which i really love.

On the first day of high school a beautiful girl named Haruhi Suzumiya introduces herself as having "no interest in ordinary humans". She asks for any aliens, time travelers, sliders or espers to join her. Watching her weird behaviour is Kyon a boy who sits in front of Haruhi and is the only person who talks to her. Commenting on Haruhi's joining every club in school and then quitting Kyon unwittingly gives Haruhi an idea to start her own after school club. Thereafter Kyon and several others find themselves literally dragged into the Save our world by Overloading it with fun Suzumiya Haruhi's Brigade (the S.O.S. Brigade for short).

This anime have been very popular for a short manga/anime and it seems that many people want more of it. I doubt this possibility though but they can hope i guess. although the main popularity has started to die down it seems its not completely dead yet seeing as there recently was released a drama CD.

i would really like to read the Suzumiya Haruhi novel sometime. since i really enjoyed this Anime. This is an anime you really should watch. And this is not like the no name mangas i usually write about, this one is really popular too. But i kind of belive that most people just see the comedy in Suzumiya haruhi and not the very deep story behind.

Hoshi no Koe

Hoshi no Koe Made by Shinkai Makoto, Adapted by Sahara Mizu
This Manga mainly caught my eye because it had only one volume which is quite rare for mangas. so i bought it because i love short mangas, and it turned out to be a really great manga.

In a future filled with a boundless potential for interstellar peace and prosperity, Mikako joins a research team to explore the recent contact between humans and alien races. She ventures out into space, leaving behind Noboru, the one young man she loves. As she travels deeper into this new frontier, her only connection with her boyfriend is through cell-phone text messages. But the years pass, and Mikako barely ages in the timelessness of space--while Noboru grows older and considers moving on with his life...In this timeless romance between star-crossed lovers in the most tragic of settings, there are some places man may not be ready to go.

This is a really beautiful love story where time and space separates the two but they never give up on each other. I was really touched when i read it and i really wanted to watch the anime too since the manga is just an adaption from the anime.

This is really an extraordinary story of how painfull it is to be apart. i really really enjoyed this manga and if you like romance manga you will probably too

Elfen Lied

Elfen Lied by Okamoto Lynn
even though it looks like an innocent manga with it's cute art style and cover it really is one of the bloodiest manga's i have ever read. This manga is Drama, Horror, Science Fiction, Shounen, Supernatural Manga and as such it's not to be take lightly. i Suggest you turn away from this manga if you aren't very fond of Horror/bloody mangas. There are also some very Echii (near pornographic) Parts of this manga involving very far sexual actions. Although i think that the Echii part of this manga really helps a laugh at times and makes the Manga alot more enjoying to read.

The Diclonius, a mutated homo sapien that is said to be selected by God and will eventually become the destruction of mankind, possesses two horns in their heads, and has a "sixth sense" which gives it telekinetic abilities. Due to this dangerous power, they have been captured and isolated in laboratories by the government. Lucy, a young and psychotic Diclonius, manages to break free of her confines and brutally murder most of the guards in the laboratory, only to get shot in the head as she makes her escape. She survives and manages to drift along to a beach, where two teenagers named Kouta and Yuka discovers her. Having lost her memories, she was named after the only thing that she can now say, "Nyuu," and the two allow her to stay at Kouta's home. However, it appears that the evil "Lucy" is not dead just yet...

The story in this manga is really exciting and thrilling and i think it has a really original story. This manga is not near as popular as the anime version but i found the anime rather disappointing because of the ending. and the fact that i was so in love with the manga at the point that i just got mad. For those who have seen the anime i can asure you that the manga continues where the anime stopped and has more exciting characters and a much better reason for it to be called "Elfen Lied" than a stupid music box.

Overall i really recommend this manga. The anime is really popular and if you didn't get enough then the manga is a great choice of action.
