1.) Rule to live by, do NOT watch cartoon network anime, it sucks, they edit it 'till it's no longer good.
Did you know dragon ball Z was originally 30 minutes long, and 25 minutes of that was one huge sex joke? Until CA came in and cut half of it, patched episodes together, and now they are 15 minutes long with commercials.
2.) Inu-yasha isn't that great of a Manga, from what i've read, it's kinda pointless. More girls are into it than guys, because it's one huge love story. I just don't like that stuff.
3.) Barnes and noble are carrying manga stuff, check there if you want more of them.
