Comic is amazing Olaf, you won't be disappointed.

Gore, I sorta feel the same about that, but at the same time I know they did it so they could keep the show going longer, and so the show could stand on it's own. Plus Kirkman is ok with the changes in the show. And if the creator is ok with it, then I'm ok with it.

Oh yeah, the show's still good. But I guess thats what we get for reading. :-P

The idea is to watch the show/movie, THEN read the book so you don't get disappointed. I did that with the "Elfen Lied" series. No, I'm not a f***ing weeaboo.

ZMA, they're actually horns...I don't know why the creator drew them to look like cat ears...And honestly, the first episode is what got me hooked. If everything I ever watched started off with that much gore and action, I'd like everything.

Okay, I'm gonna make my most candid confession ever: The series finale of "Elfen Lied" I shed some man tears at the end.

ZMA, you can't avoid it. The series was a total gorefest but the plot was so saddening it makes the hardest of men tear up. Even the manga series its based off of made me tear up at the end.

...No, I'm not a b****.

GC, Yea I heard about that from my girl......who showed me in the first place haha. Appreciate that heart felt confession there dude. If I tear up at the end it's all good as long as it's a good show. I almost like tearing up. It means the show or movie I'm watching is actually trying to put some emotion in there which doesn't happen a whole lot anymore. Just action up the ass.
