The collected works of voth

I actually like the 'new' look, but since I'm pretty much starting out here. I will be posting a number of pointless post (I'll try to keep them in the Other, and Anime sections) and hopefully no where else.
Gray Fox,

Why not just do a random download of a episode/series and play it by ear, that's how I found a lot of interesting series.

University cracking down on all BT/*mule traffic are they. Well you could always go the route of Usenet
Gray Fox,

Have you had a chance to see Karin, Blood+, or Jigoku Shoujo yet?
Short synopsis of the three (taken from AnimDB with links)

Karin is about a normal girl that goes to school, or so we might think. In reality, she`s the daughter in a family of vampires, though Karin is an exception to the other family members. She somehow produces blood! What a disgrace to the family! ... rch=search

The war never stops: in a different time, on a different battlefield, hiding deeply into the folds of History… They are called Chiropterans. They can change their form and disguise as human beings, but they are not. They are immortal creatures that feed off blood.

An organization, named Red Shield, has been fighting to exterminate this pestilence, and the struggle has now evolved into something of a much bigger scale.

Okinawa, Japan. Year 2005. Now.

Saya Otonashi is a high-school girl living peacefully with her family – with one exception: she has no memory of her life except for the past year. One day, a startling event causes her happy life to shatter into pieces.

An enemy to destroy, a mission to accomplish – the vortex of an ancient struggle is dragging Saya back to her destiny. A young and handsome cello player in dark clothes appears – his name is Hagi. The moment he hands Saya a Japanese sword, History starts a new course.

Will Saya be able to restore her memory and find her own ident ... rch=search

Jigoku Tsushin
There is a rumor. There exists a message board called “Jigoku Tsushin” where one can access only at midnight. It is said that if one writes his grudge against someone, Jigoku Shoujo appears and she takes the person to the Hell. ... rch=search

I've liked the series (all) up to this point, if you have a chance you should check them out.
Another series you may want to check out: Black Lagoon

From Anidb
Based on the manga by Hiroe Rei.
When Okajima Rokuro visited South East Asia carrying top secret file, he was kidnapped by the pirates riding in a torpedo boat, “Black Lagoon”. Although he thought he would be rescued soon, the company sent mercenaries to shut his mouth.
