Ready! Thank you for the warning. I better avoid attacks by these guys who get manga and links, that's for sure! (This link is really sinister, hacking and complicated).
The Battle Network manga is really funny, how many censored scenes did the series have in general, huh? (laughs)
All of that sounds good, but the anime DVDs will cost you BIG. Complete sets of Stream and Beast are going for over $250+ USD, the last Axess set that sold (which I was going to buy!!!) sold for around $289, and the first season I have only found each volume individually and some go for over $200 USD by themselves. My next target is Beast+, which I will probably grab relatively soon. Even English dub DVDs of the first season have been going for absorbent prices lately, so be prepared to send big. I really regret selling my set of English dub DVDs no matter how...poorly made they were.
The Battle Network games still go for normal price (around $40 USD), but are well worth it. Either that or you can hope and pray for a Battle Network Legacy Collection. I know I am!
The anime has...many issues, if I may be honest. For one, using the same NetNavis over and over each season as the bad guys got old. But alas, it's solid enough. Stream is probably my favorite season though it's a very close draw between it and Beast, but I have a massive bias for Be Somewhere since it's one of my favorite anime openings of all time, so that's Stream wins. XD
I translate this opening into Portuguese, the lyrics were really "funny", and my favorite too. Especially in the part that appears at the opening Bass.EXE, Slur.EXE, the shadow of my nickname hehe (Duo.EXE) and finally Lan holding the Duo emblem? 👀
