    Air Gear

    First we have creatures that can only speak its own name, then we have deadly spinning tops, now we have rollerblades with mini electric motors that can make the person "fly" and a frigging crow that can do Kage Bushin no Jutsu to censor the good stuff in life.

    At first I wasn't very enthusiastic about this anime because i thought the "battles" were lame, but now i changed my mind because now i know there are different types of battles not just the one you go beat the crap out of the other guy. I found the style and techniques in it pretty cool and you can hear Rie Tanaka slutty voice... yay.

    After reading the manga scans up to the current chapter, there IS some depth to this ambitous idea for a story. Did I mention that it is by Oh Great! ? So, if you are a healthy young man I recommend you Air Gear.

    Hahaha. I like how he played around with the characters of his name and turned it into OH GREAT (for those of you who don't already know, the author's name is Ohgure Ito >> write in katakana and you get OH GREAT!! ).

    I'm up to Vol 13. Agito rocks! XD

    Air Gear is about a typical 15 year old, Minami Itsuki aka Ikki, the leader of East Side Gunz, Higachu Junior High school gang. After being utterly humiliated by a street gang of Storm Riders using Air Treck (abbreviated as AT), the Noyamano siblings gave him a pair of Air Treck and helped him to deal with them. When the incident is over, he finds that he really likes the feeling of "flying" and he is sucked into the world of Air Treck. In the earliest part of the story, it mainly focus with Ikki finding his footing as a Storm Rider among with little episodes of his friends' lives. Later, the story is further developed to look into the issues of the AT world when Akito and Agito appear.

    The battles are, I guess can be said as racing. For girls, there is a bishounen character. Fanservice for guys, bishounen character for girls, what else can you ask for.

    Plenty of fanservice in the form of Simca and her extra-short tunic (or whatever you call it). I think she looks cuter with short hair.

    Oh, Nue is cool too, but all that metal stuff on him is pretty weird.

    @ pigtaru : It's pretty good, if you like rollerblading. There isn't much of a storyline to it (some flashbacks and stuff), mostly wanting to be... you know, tops. Stuff like that. Awesome action in the manga, though (great art too ). I haven't watched the series yet, though. D/L links?
