About GTO, I didn't see the anime nor the movie.
But I've seen some screenshots and the actor who plays Onizuka doesn't look like him at all! :eek:

Anyway, the manga is great... that's so funny!! :lol:

What did you think about the movie?

But I've heard there's also a TV series (in live, with real actors...) ???

I like the movie better than manga.
because the drawing of that manga is not my favorite type.
I like Shojo manga...

Sorry I don't know that TV series...

You like shoujo?

So do you like Utena, Fushigi Yuugi? Personally I really like FY. ;)
(Nuriko is my favorite character!) Image

But I think the drawings of GTO are good. (and funny...) =P

This is also by Yuu Watase... I've only read the first volume of Ayashi no Ceres, but I prefer FY. This series is really great!! BTW, Watase's graphic style is awesome! :D

I'd like to see more anime. If only I had Kazaa... but I need DSL :(

Sorry I don't know...:~(

BTW
Many Japanese read manga with magazines.
I feel animation broadcasting on television decreased than some years ago.
or
Since much animation is broadcast in the early evening, maybe I only feel so.

I'd like to talk about the seasons in Japan.

For those who don't speak Japanese:

Haru/Spring
Natsu/Summer
Aki/Autumn
Fuyu/Winter

What is your favorite season and why? Which seasons do you dislike?

In France, I hate summer. It's just too hot. :buh:
Winter is a bit cold, but snow is beautiful... too bad the snow here doesn't fall as much as some years ago. :(
Spring and autumn are both cool seasons. Maybe because there is no extreme weather...
Here the forests in autumn are magnificent! :D

Sadly, I've never been to Japan so I can't talk about the seasons there :~(

Hm...I like winter ;) And autumn actually too as long as it's cold. I don't really like summer especialls not this year. Here in Germany it was too hot. Luckily I was in Sweden then and there the weather was quite okay although it rained some days. I hope the winter is coming soon - I need snow again ;)

I like Autumn.
Because autumn gives many delicious foods for me.
But I like Spring as well.
Because the cherry blossoms are in bloom! ;)

If I dare to say...
I dislike Winter. :(

I don't know how winter is in Japan, so I can't say if I agree or not... =P

I've heard there are typhoons in September (?) ???

And what do you think about summer? ;)

Btw, I hope you hadn't had too much problems with the recent earthquakes... :(

The reason that I dislike winter is ,
The frozen street is slippery and dangerous to walk on. :(
There are some days when snow falls in winter of Tokyo.
Snow melt in many cases immediately, so its freeze on the road surface at the next morning. :(

Summer...umm

I do not like summer but I do not dislike summer.
But I think "Beer in summer is delicious.":D
Hot temperature makes beer delicious!:D

Thank you but I'm ok.
Recent earthquakes happened in Hokkaido.
Hokkaido is far from Tokyo.
