Merla and I started "Elemental Gelade".  Only seen five eps, but it feels very generic-- like it took things from every other anime ever made and decided that was good enough.  But Merla liked it enough to queue more, so I guess I'll be watching more of it.  It's not the worse thing I've ever seen though.  I like the designs for the two main characters.  (Though they too look kinda cookie-cutter.)

I save final judgement on KARAS when I see the rest of it. But I don't have high hopes.

I was looking through New Releases at blockbuster and spotted the final dvd of Karas which had snuck into the US and onto shelves like suprise buttsecks.

It was all right. I would say a rental more than a buy. But this one had more gratuitous violence. Ending was predictable though. Saddest part was when a little girl was crying over her dead mother... that's gonna scar her for life.

I don't know if it counts as anime but new episodes of shin chan are on CN and the girl that sings the ending theme and does the mom voice is pretty hot.  I would make her sing it and chase her around the apartment naked.

The Medicine Peddler definetely goes on my list of memorable anime characters

Oh hell yeah. Definitely on my list of "characters I'd do if I ever find myself two-dimensional"  >:D

Both versions of him?  :P  I really want to see Mononoke.  Too bad about Geneon or else I know they would've snapped that title up.

Tru dat.

Just started The Story of Saiunkoku.  Two episodes in.  It looks cute so far.  However it was a Geneon title, and it was only released two discs into the series before Geneon shut down or whatever.  Which means episode 8 or so is as far as I'll get for a long time.

Fuck. I loved Mononoke. Best anime I've seen in a long time. I had initially written off Ayakashi as a complete turd (despite the intro music), but after learning that the medicine peddler originated from the tail end of that series, I bought the final volume. His transformation/banishment sequences are over-the-top awesome.

Yeah, the one about the forgotten god and the guy who fall in love was especially turd-rific.  And it was four episodes long.  Unforgivable.   :poo:

Do you have high-speed internet? If so, grab Mononoke. Grab it like your life depended on it.

Sadly, I don't.  We had planned to get it but those fuckers at AT&T don't offer it in my area.

Everyone in Canada knows each other. It's just one of many things that make them such pricks. They should hate and try to kill each other like us. It's the American way.

I think I mentioned the awesome anime millitary-mech series Code Geass before, and how it makes other mech anime like Gundam Zero look like shit (although Gundam Zero is shit anyway, so not hard to make THAT comparison).

It's going to be on Adult Swim in the spring. I'd suggest giving it a shot and at least watching the first 5-6 episodes.

Bandai also has a trailer, but I'm a tad disappointed with the dub voices I'm hearing so far. Of course, don't let the dub ruin the series for you. In fact I'd just download the series and say screw the dub.




and for fun... Code Geass to the V for Vendetta trailer, and to the 300 trailer.
I like to go down to the playground and watch the kids run and jump and scream, because they don't know I'm only using blanks.

Modern anime is a stagnant cesspool of regurgitated ideas.

Holy shit.

I just marathoned the last 8 episodes of Code Geass and it was the most epic ending of a season I have ever seen in all of anime.

I won't try to spoil too much but the action and intense drama start around episode 22 where thousands of Japanese are slaughtered by the Empire on national tv. The Empire sees what's going on and mobilizes the military immediately and tries to shut down the broadcast, but rebel agents in the media keep the broadcast going worldwide and upload vids to youtube. The Rebels that were hiding in their mechs around the area in case something went wrong all went on the assault to prevent more innocents from dying.

Then the Japanese rioted en-masse and took over the country one area at a time, and were led by Zero in a massive army to attack the Empire's fortress in Tokyo. Episode 23 ended with Zero giving an ultimatum: Surrender now or burn in hell, fuckers.

Of course the Empire refuses and the 1 hour long season finale was one enormous battle between the Empire and the Japanese rebels, complete with dramatic music and scenes of main characters dying, like a typical war drama:

*two friends fight side by side and one of them dies*
Rebel: "Buddy? Buddy! Say something buddy! Don't die on me!"
Rebel 2: "Tell my wife and kids I *coughs up blood* love... them...." *dies*
Rebel: "NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!" *goes on a beserk rampage and kills hundreds of enemy troops before dying.

You know, scenes like that. Not exactly like that, but similar.

The bad thing was this wasn't really the ending of the series and there was a cliffhanger ending. If they do the ending of the entire series as epic and awesome as this, as epic as the ending to Evangelion, then this anime series could rank among the best.
I like to go down to the playground and watch the kids run and jump and scream, because they don't know I'm only using blanks.

Merla and I saw some 4-disc gay-thing: Gakuen Heaven.  We have a lot of school work now, so we aren't starting any more anime until that shit's done with.

I just got my copy of Steamboy and watched it again. I had seen this awhile back on the Sci-Fi Channel, but it was even better the 2nd go round. First anime I've bought in like 6 years.

Hey, IDE, did you ever watch any more of Girls Bravo?

I've seen several good series over the past few months. 
  • Le Chevalier D'Eon is a dramatic/action/adventure/mystery/period piece based on an actual French spy from the period immediately preceding the French Revolution.  It's damn good, despite some of the weird gender-bending that went on. 
  • School Rumble, while being completely on the other end of the spectrum as a high school comedy, is hilarious and well-worth checking out...the first season's done but there're two OVAs and a second season yet to come.  You'd think it'd be painfully cliche, but the writer did a great job of coming up with new stuff to do. 
  • Eureka Seven overcame a slow first dozen episodes to become the best mecha anime since RahXephon, possibly since Evangelion...sadly, Netflix no longer carries it, just as the series winds to a close as of tomorrows release of the 12th volume.
It was mentioned a page or so back, but the death of Geneon has resulted in a number of good series being left in a lurch, including Hellsing Ultimate and Black Lagoon.  But I understand Funimation is working on picking some of them up, so hopefully these will eventually see release...particualrly Black Lagoon, which has been completed and is currently airing on Starz Edge or whatever.

Well I wouldn't know if came out in theaters recently since it'd be cold day in hell when anyplace around here would have it, but it's pretty recent.  2005 US release. Katsuhiro Ôtomo, the same guy behind Akira, directed it. It's a steampunk based story.

I remember getting a free DVD from Suncoast plugging the movie.  But it didn't do anything for me...in fact, it sort of put me off a bit, since I didn't think much of the story-in-short or the art direction.  So I have yet to see it.

I thought it was good. It has a more western straight forward story, which I like as some eastern story telling can get a bit scattered and drug out.

I tried to get Eddie to watch Kyo Kara Maou a couple of weeks ago:

Eddie: I don't want to watch one of your pretty gayboy animes.

Bernie:  It's not.  It's funny.  Get us some beers and come sit down.

Comes out of the kitchen in time to see Yuri lean out the window, stare at the moon and sigh, "Conrad....".  Sets my beer down without breaking step, goes into the bedroom, and turns on the game.

Death befriends me.
Of all the pains, the greatest pain
is to love, and love in vain.

Watching Claymore now.  It's pretty damn good so far.  Usually I don't like a show that has all the most powerful characters as chicks but this one is an exception.  I'll probably watch code geas after this and then maybe re download girls bravo as after this I'll be wanting something funny again.
