Hi all!

This may seem like a dumb question but I'm still new to anime/manga, and still learning! I'm slowly exploring titles out there and finding what interests me, and I've bought a few manga titles and checked out several more from the library.

Now since I don't have a lot of money I've been trying to stick to stuff I can get at the library. I found ****** thanks to a friend's journal on DeviantArt, and they've got a few series I like there, that's where I started watching Bleach (and will get back to now that they're up again)

The thing is there's a couple series I'm really interested in continuing that are not available there.

Right now I'm looking for:

Ghost Hunt (anime and manga)
Gintama (anime, they have the manga)
Revolutionary Girl Utena (anime and manga)

I don't care if the anime is subbed or dubbed, I'll watch either. I know there's anime for Gintama, it's mentioned in the manga volumes I bought (I've got all three that have been released), and I'm pretty sure I saw mention of a Ghost Hunt anime somewhere. I just would love to know where to see these!


Once I catch up a bit more on the series I am hooked on so far (those, Bleach, Claymore, Tsubasa Chronicles, just got into Fullmetal Alchemist a bit), I'll start looking for more. Though suggestions are always welcomed. So far what I really like are magical girl stories, and especially anything to do with the paranomal/ghosts/parapsychology etc. Yeah I'm a lifelong Ghostbusters fanatic and that's why I love Ghost Hunt and Bleach. :)


Thanks in advance for any help!

Actually, the St. Louis County Library has Ghost Hunt in manga form. ^^ Our system has a nice and growing collection. If your library doesn't carry something, see if they can do an Interlibrary Loan and order it in.

I mainly buy DVDs, simply because the computer gives me headaches after a while. I do use ******* sometimes, though =3. But it won't have licensed titles.

Ukraine has breasts.
She has them in spades.
If South Korea and Ukraine were to hook up...
Then South Korea would never have a shortage of breasts ever again.

Guys I h8 to spoil the fun but you cannot mention these sites on the forums due to licensing reasons. Absolutely NO links, ads, or pointers to warez, Hong Kong or other bootlegs, licensed anime episodes, or fansubs or fansubbers with licensed anime content. So I had to to edit some stuff. Please remember this ok. Allright as Tim Gunn from Project Runway would say, carry on. :D

Whoops, sorry! I didn't realize that was a no-no!

Well perhaps does anyone know where I can find some of those anime at a reasonable price? I am trying to save lots of money for Acen and I don't want to spend like $50 a DVD.

Oh and Bebop, I have requested some mangas from my library but right now my home library is closed while we move into a brand new super awesome building and I really don't feel like driving all the way to Elmwood Park to pick up requests. So til the end of January my ILL-ing is on hold. :) Besides, Ghost Hunt I've been buying, cuz I'm in love with it!
