Hello Arlong Park,
noticed I had not posted my "introduction", so here I go.
First of all, english is not my main language, I try my best but .. well sometimes I write crap.
I'm currently 28 years old, living in France.
I heard about OP a few years ago, but watched for the first time almost by accident when it was running on a sat channel. I liked the aspect of the show, but was really disappointed in the french dub (It's really crappy, at least the original french dub, the new one is better), so I downloaded subbed versions (yeah I know it's bad, kittens were killed) and watched something like 320 episodes in 2 weeks (max), and I loved the OPverse. Curious about the following arcs, (the anime was in the fillers post-EL Water 7) I started reading the scans until I catched on the japanese releases. Loving this manga, I bought the French release volumes and, well, still continue to do so, (can't wait for the 55), and after the anime changed studios, the anime releases (with new dub and subtitles \o/).
Except OP, I follow the 2 others from the big3, and a few others. I mostly read shonens, with a few seinens.
I'm not a big talker so don't wait for flood :p, I'm more a lurker who enjoy reading the various (crazy) theories (and the spoils !):ninja:
Well, I'll stop here, and again, HELLO EVERYONE.
