What sane team plays defence on Kamp Nou?! You'd think that by this time they would have figured out that Barce tears through any defence on their ground. Imo the only way to play on Nou is offence.
oh well... shit happens. but yaaay at Shakhtar winning I hate Italian clubs
No new episodes till weekend . I've got tight schedule right now.
Cheers to the italian clubs...may they never reach so far ahead again!
Sorry to hear that...cuz I finished all 2 seasons...it was fun, thanks for reminding me

Does anyone go the Nou Camp attacking? That is like suicide. Other than that being ridiculous, i dont think a champions league team has done that in the knockout stages for years now. Manchester united set the standard against Rijkaard side a couple of years back, defend with 11 (hopefully bribe the ref xD) and try and nick a goal at home. Inter did the same, defend away nick goals at home. Chelsea the same. The only problem is arsenal...dont know how to defend. (Although i think we were very good last night...stupid mistakes happened though >_>).
So...Beni...what does the username stand for? Was it you who said it was part of you RL name?
Yup...RL name...not much of a story behind it...
@ Impy - Something always goes wrong for Arsenal whenever they play Barcelona. You guys have been cursed by the Catalans. Nothing happened to you guys when you played Real Madrid in the CL. Liverpool won at Nou Camp. It's definitely a tough place to go to and win but it ain't impossible. It's all about Joga Bonito.
Hey Benny, have you seen any of those Joga Bonito clips? It was part of nike's advertisement campaign a few years ago. In the run up to the world cup I think. Anyway, if you haven't; you should definitely check them out on youtube.
What other sports are you into?
What was the last movie you watched?
But we've seen that arsenal is pretty much down at the moment...I mean just look at the weekend's result...I think the right word is overwhelming...
Other sports...hmmm...tough one, because I'm an all around guy...I pretty much did most mainstream sports that are out there...but in particular, I like tennis, ski, ice skate and dancing...but my main sport nowadays is basketball, since I play it on regular basis...
Fav colour...I guess blue...my eyes say it all...
Last movie...Black Swan...and since I watched it, there's no other movie that would rise to that level, so they bore me...aka recommended the Millenium Trilogy, but I know it will bore me, so...but I'll give it a try
OK, I have finished Code Geass.... and I have to say: That anime was probably the best piece I have seen since Death Note!!! It was just WOW! I felt so very sad for Lelouch, his only reward for everything was to go down in history as a despotic nutcase who had God-complex. Rolo was also one of the sadder characters for me:
"I have always been used by everyone, even you. But saving you is my choice" All that coming from Rolo's voice actor was just...
Surprisingly, Schneizel reminded me so much of Pain... I mean his idea of world peace, Schneizel certainly didn't look like he hasn't eaten for months... But he was still a good man with a kind heart in my opinion.
And Emperor's "rrreeeerooooouuuuccchhhhiiiiiiiiii" was just unforgettable
Felt a bit said for C.C. in the end... she, once again, ended up being a lonely soul with her greatest dream unfulfilled. Still, she became a bit happier thanks to Lelouch, so I guess that balances out her somewhat "unhappy" ending
The only dissappointment was Diethard's ending. I mean... really?! this was the guy I liked in R1? Really? Oh well, if anything, he always was a bit crazy
Todouh and Kallen were badass till the end and Jeremia FTW!

Schneizel is my favorite character...the way he pawned Lelouch in that chess game was awesome, and in my eyes he was probably more of a monster than the Emperor...he was greatQuote:
And yeah, he is somewhat similar to Pein...their methods are the same, and seeing the similarity I think that Naruto the manga will end in somewhat similar fashion...who is the one gathering the hate in this moment in the manga? Both manga world and real one, lol...Sasuke...and who will break this hatred...Naruto...but in this case the antagonist and the protagonist or rather its symbol are not the same(like Lelouch and Zero), so that's why I think that Naruto will be able to convince Sasuke to redeem himself somehow...
I already mentioned that last scene...Quote:
Haha, he was indeed somebody who caught the interest in R1, however, he was always destined to be just an observer, a reporter, and he failed in the end....because he didn't realize Lelouch's plan, he was just concentrated on the present facts, so not seeing the big picture made him a commoner in the end...Quote:
I didn't really like these ones...they were all fooled, and if they realized what Schneizel was doing (gathering the hate on something) then they should've done that in Lelouch's case as well...Quote:
My favorite knight was Gilford, he didn't shift allegiances he remained faithful to Cornelia...one of his last scenes with Cornelia in the hospital was just awesome...

I approve of your thread title.
There should be a coke smiley
Hello Benelori! first time posting in your thread
I don't really have any questions except to just say Hi!
I see some conversations about Code Geass though..I never got to watching the second geass, so I can't say much but I can talk about Naruto, I like Pein more than the rest of the villains in the show.
His idea of pain and peace was stuck in my mind for a long time although he's methods were wrong but he's still a great character.
Welcome to my thread! I'm glad people are slowly discovering the wonders of this thread...so hi!Quote:
Make sure you do watch it! The known universe of the anime gets expanded, there are lots of new characters and the old ones are getting some twists as well...it's really great...I like the second season a lot more, then the first...
Pein...he was indeed a great character, however I think his idea of peace, is something overused a bit...or at least I have this cliche feeling...speaking of code geass, the same idea appears there as well...
Personally as appointed leader of Akatsuki, I don't think he got enough screen time, but that's just me...
I'm soo looking forward to Arakawa's new manga...I think you read FMA, so what do you think?
The thing about Code Geass R2 is that it slipped my mind and it never came back until recently and then it slipped again I don't know why maybe because it's been so long since I saw the first one. But no doubt will I watch the second series, it's just a matter of time..something I need to manage.
I also need to remember various parts of the story but it shouldn't take me long, I mean it's pretty epic.
I guess it wasn't as cliche for me because when he first appeared, I haven't been reading or watching anime/mangas much. So being such a naruto fan long time ago, I was like when I first saw him and then everything he said was cool..that is until I know how much depth it means did I start appreciate him as a character, and then after reading and watching more, he was still great but not as great as some other villains I've seen.Quote:
I'm not sure about the idea in Code Geass, I can't remember it clearly but Lelouch was doing it because he wanted to change the nation when he had the power and because of his experience in the past and he was also doing it for her sister or something. I think i'm wrong and I'm sorry.
Well..I can't say much because all we've got is a title and a character.Quote:
The title caught me off guard and I wasn't expecting a name like 'Silver Spoon", I mean I'm not sure what it means.
But I'm sure Arakawa have something planned for the name like what she did with FMA'S name.
So if this is a school manga, I think that the guy in the magazine must be some kind of uh..class president or something, or someone that likes studying. Just random guesses..haha.
Anw, he looks like a serious guy
Yep, I'm looking forward to it. I hope more epicness will follow after FMA
True that...for me the circumstances surrounding his idea of peace made me ...when he nailed Naruto to the ground, and started talking...the wonderful art, and the fact that they were fellow disciples......luvd itQuote:
I won't comment on this, cuz I will spoil......Quote:
I don't know if Arakawa will try another fantasy setting, but I think you're right...it indeed looks like a high-school manga, and it's definitely a modern time setting...Quote:
But I do hope neither of us is right on this...
