Too be fair, they aired it years ago

But apparently it's not banned as I though...

A google search brings up nothing about it being banned... though some are surprised it isn't

I didn't like Death note, I though the main character like totally jumped the shark right at the first episode when he went from mild mannered kid who was clearly frightened by the death note to a Megolmanic psycho with delusions of Godhood in the space of an add break.

You might think its weird for a first episode, but that's because you're just being introduced to the character. While he starts off a blank slate to you, when they start the anime he already has his characteristics defined. You just don't begin to see those until you watch more of it

He's frightened as anyone else would be in that situation. It's like having your concept of reality turned upside down. Notice by the end of the first episode so many people had died? My guess is that the more he did it the more he became convinced that he was the only one who could exercise proper judgment on those who'd break the law. He started out afraid, but being fascinated with the power he had.. He became intoxicated with itt.

It doesn't tell you in this episode but he has a very strong sense of justice. You kind of learn why after a few episodes when you meet his family. I really shouldn't be talking much more as it can really spoil the experience for those who want to see it

Death Note's kinda like Naruto in that aspect to me.
I like the manga better then the animes.

God don't get me started on the butchered up english dub of Naruto
*stabs catch phrase "believe it" with something sharp*

And they edit out the blood and any deathblows... WTF?
It's ninjas! Ninjas KILL people argh!

Have a new favourite anime, Full Metal Panic! and FMP Fumoffu.

They just both make me really laugh. Sousuke Sagara is the best character ever.
It's not really something to watch for the Slave Arm battles though. More something to appease a guy who wouldn't want to have to sit through the girly bits.

You like all that Ghibli stuff but have you seen My Neighbour Totoro? You must get it! It makes me want to have a kid just so I can show it to them. This is what kids TV should be like.

I tell ya Hayao Miyazaki is awesome sauce, lol. Seriously, his stuff blows me away, always has me in tears. I don't think a film has ever done that.

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien ( the first series, not the crappy second one )

EDIT: I take back what I said about the second series *wipes tear from eye*

Probably the emotional anime I've experienced.
