    Default lost newbie!

    Hi
    Iím new to the forum and joined because Iím looking for some input from die-hard anime fans on a birthday present for my best friend who is otaku.

    Iím not very knowledgable about anime or manga. While I appreciate the art of it, I must admit I donít have the patience to follow the hundereds of episodes of a lot of the longer series!! I really admire the dedication of steadfast anime fans who keep up with several shows at a time, not to mentions all the music on the OSTs!

    So hereís the thing. My friendís birthday is coming up and sheís a big anime fan and also someone whoís hard to buy for. She doesnít really talk anime with me much since she knows I donít follow it that much, but this is the random (if limited) stuff I know about what she likes:

    Favorite animes: Bleach, Fairy Tail, Dragonball Z

    She loves anime OSTs but Iím not sure which ones exactly (I know she was listening to the Blood+ OST some time ago)

    She has images of Mystogan from Fairy Tail as her screensaver


    So here are some possibilities Iíve been considering:
    Anime artbooks - but which ones are good? (for example, there are several different Bleach onesÖ)

    Anime OST cds Ė but these can be quite expensive when shipped from Japan and canít they all be accessed online? Or are there some special limited edition ones with added perks?

    Manga - but manga for animes that she likes (or is it boring to read manga if youíve already seen the anime)? And is there any good shonen manga that hasnít been made into anime yet? (And does anyone know what manga issues Mystogan appears in?)

    Sorry if any of my questions might seem naÔve Ė Iím new to this! Any input whatsoever would be tremendously appreciated because Iím feeling pretty overwhelmed right now! Thanks a lot!!!

    Default Welcome :)

    Im a big fairy tail fan too. Though ive started to get bored of it since the episodes stopped airing back in april.

    Mystogan doesnt appear that much in fairy tail. Try manga volumes 20 - 24. This is the edolas arc where it is mostly about mystogan and his sercrets. Rave master manga is also good. It is made by the hiro mashima - the same author of fairy tail. It is interesting how he sort of used the same character designs for a few characters like bisca, mystogan or jellal. Im guessing the person would like any kind of fairy tail merchandise. That includes ost cds, figurines, posters, anything. Idk what kind of book you mean but im guessing a drawing book? If you are try "mastering manga" by Mark Crilley. He has a channel on youtube. Check out his drawings. He is pretty good. Fairy tail osts are epic in my opinion. The composer is yasuharu takanashi. That might help you if you are looking for cds.
    That is all that i can think of in the top of my head. Sorry if i wasnt helpful.
