I would still like to watch this subtitled. My only exposure so far is the Fox dub, which was absolute shit.

The noses made me not want to try it at first.  I saw the opening credit sequence on this Anime Review show that came out on community tv here and the song was pretty but those noses made me WTF.  I had recorded it on tape and everytime I would come across that one, I would wonder what the hell it was about.  So that was during my impulse buying days and I was curious, so I picked up vol. 1 along with some Saber Marionette J that I was buying at the time.  Those first eps blew me away so I just went back and got the entire series and loved it.

I had forgotten that Fox had practically cut out the first episode.  That one sets the whole tone.  But Escaflowne was never for the breakfast cereal crowd anyway... especially not the American one.  Batman: TAS's as deep as we were able to go, I think.  And multipart stuff was always murder anyway.

I distinctly remember people bitching about the dub being horrible, and despite the rancor it bothered me a lot less than hearing all that Japanese jibberish would have.  It might have to do with the fact that it was heavily editted by Fox for broadcast, and I saw the DVD version.

BTW: Beck, I'm sure you remember who voiced Allen Shezar?

Yes, I do.  I recall liking him, Kirby Morrow, and Paul Dobson as far as casting went, but I don't think they were directed correctly.  Brian as I recall was using a raspier voice for Allen and he's capable of a smoother one, which Allen needed.  Kelly Sheridan can act, but her Hitomi failed me.  Given the talent they had, the dub was not where it should've been imo.  Dilandau was all sorts of wrong.  That was one of those cases where the pitch in the Japanese version doesn't cut it in English (like Goku for example, he's better off being voiced by a man than a woman in English).  Dilandau was voiced by a woman and they needed a young man for the part, not Andrew Francis in his prepubesent Monster Rancher phase.  Too bad puberty didn't come sooner for him or he might've been okay.

I do agree that the dub has the unfortunate connection with a horrible edit that makes mine and I'm certain others' opinions on it worse than they had to be.

Just watched tortorro for the first time.

It was great.  When I have some money I'm going to actually buy all his films.

I just finished up the TV series portion of Patlabor. I have to wait until Friday and then order the OVA series that follows it up. I'll finish the TV timeline and then go try out the OVA-Movie timeline. I was disappointied to not see Asuma and Noa hook up.

The only good part of the Escaflowne Movie ultimate box set was the music soundtrack. That music is actually pretty good.
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.

Dudes, this is bummer!  Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood Fails on Ratings.  I think loads of people got turned off that it was doing little more than retelling a bulk of the story.  Hell, even I skipped several early eps.  But once it diverges completely away from retelling shit, it is EPIC fucking WIN.  This series better not die, dammit!

I screencapped this from an ep of Sherlock Hound.  He's supposed to be tickling himself but FTW.

So I finally had some free time to chill and decided that I was going to FINALLY watch my complete collection of Lady Oscar (Versailles no Bara) that my friend got me from a market in Peru. After finishing the first 3 dvds (15 episodes total) I'm ready to watch the 4th but the fucking thing was BLANK. Already panicking, I proceed to chell the rest of the dvds... ALL BLANK. I'm sure my "FUUUUUUUUUUUUCK MEEEEEE"  was heard all the way to Virginia

Yes if you pay like 15 dollars a month to some stupid webpage. I even checked Ebay and they only have the episodes translated in spanish from Spain and I HATE their accent so I'm not getting those. I already offered those people more money if they get me the latin american ones but all they said was "we'll get back at you". Seems like money can't buy it all :-(

I saw the first ep of Inuyasha: The Final Act, which is the 26 ep sequel series that's supposed to conclude the Inuyasha story.  It really moved way too fast.
