    I remember watching The Professional in Jr. High back in the late 80's. I didn't like the 2nd movie so much but when the series came out I was like "Hell yeah!" Duke Togo's the baddest dude. Top ranked assassin in the world, does hits with a modified M16, he's a Mac with the ladies & never misses a mark. I can think of only 2 dudes as tough as he is in manga/anime. Ogami Itto from Lone Wolf & Cub and Guts from Bezerker.

    But Duke's got 'em beat with style & swag.

    Did you see the episode when he got sent to prison, broke out with some gangster, gained his trust & then killed him because he was the mark all along? Duke Togo is the shizznick man.

    Hah, yeah - I've only seen about half the series so far, but I think that prison break ep was one of the best ones. I liked the one where he smuggles a gun into the sports stadium inside a balloon as well. My only real complaint about the two films was that they didn't really touch on Duke's ability to do ridiculous things like that and make them completely believable.

    Yup...that ballon episode was pretty awesome too. The Professional was like an introduction to Duke. That second film was blah...but the show certainly delves into the character & his personality. He's an excellent example of the 'anti-hero' archetype in my opinion. Sure, he's killer. But he's got a lot of honor too.

    ^I like the .Hack series, too! Not my favorite, but they're pretty fun!

    Man .hack has some pretty bad gameplay especially compared to .hack//G.U. But they were talking about the manga focused around chibi Kite and Blackrose, who are brother and sister and won a contest in The World.

    @JJJorgie - I think its just a clever idea of a story about an MMO, that is what captivated me though :P

    @Sylux - Yeah the original 4 game series were a bit... repetitive to say the least :/ but I don't really play the games. I just read the manga's and watch the anime's/OVA's


    @Bacon_Barbarian - Is Blue Exorcist any good? I've had it suggested to me before but I've never really payed much attention to it :/
