That was a great show. I liked it a lot better then the movie. 2nd Gig wasn't bad, but not as good as SAC.

Oh yeah forgot to mention. It's really really good.

Except they don't really set the charachters up at all. Was I supposed to watch something else first?

Ghost in the Shell the movie came first. There was also a manga that the movie was based on. Although the original movie and it's sequel and this TV show and it's sequel are set in like different universes using the same characters. The Third movie is a set in the SAC Universe.

I had a list of things I was planning to watch on Netflix but then it said something like "available until Oct 1" or something (this was back in late Sept.) and I was all "screw this, I'm not watching three anime on Netflix's schedule".

It's kinda weird.  I'm sure they have a reason for it, but I can just go elsewhere anyway.

GitS:SAC was awesome. And, no, there was no character intro, because A) old anime fans will know who they are, and B) is there really a need to introduce everyone one by one? Each one gets enough screen time to get to know them well enough for what they're there for.

Just wanted to mention that I am greatly enjoying GitS:SAC.

They have definitely shown most of the characters plenty for me to know almost all of them (I don't know the red eyed cyborg's name, and I can't remember the long haired guys name right now).  I love the tanks, and I especially love the episode where one tank gives his explanation of how he perceives god in the digital as 0, and the episode where they're all worried about the major being mad at them.

I liked the first season but never cared enough to watch the second.

Besides Brotherhood, which I still watch every week as it's on-going, I saw:

Dragonball Kai - I had never even heard of this until last week!  Apparently, for DBZ's 20th anniversary, they respliced the series in order to fit into a 100 eps or some shit like that and are currently airing it in Moonland.  So on the plus side, it goes the pace it always should've gone.  On the minus side, I've seen ever ep up to Vegeta getting pissed off on Namek eighty-billion times, so even recut, redubbed, and with added material it's still a fucking rerun.  I ran out of patience for the Cell Saga (especially since I skipped that over to get to the Buu shit), so maybe I can watch it this time around and not feel bored to MASH, I mean, death.  :)  I only saw the first ep of this.

Nyan Koi - Also currently airing.  A high school kid allergic to cats accidentally knocks the head off of a statue of a cat diety and understands cats.  He must do 100 cat-good deeds or he will become a cat.  I don't like that it has the earmarks of some harem comedy, but if they keep the focus on the cats and don't have all of these chicks going crazy-desperate over this loser--who only seems to actually like-like one girl anyway, then it should be decent.  I've only seen two eps of this.

Kuro Shitsuji - Also called "Dark Butler", I think.  Am going to start this soon.

They don't have the second season on NF Instant and that blows. They have some 'movie' for the first season, that I think is just a collection of a few of the Laughing Man episodes. I still haven't figured it out because I can't find any information on ATM. Perhaps one of you knows:

"Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: The Laughing Man"

What kind of shit is that?

Its 1:20 long. It could just be four or maybe five episodes edited and squeezed together. FUUUUCK.

They left out all the "stand-alone" part and put the "complex" part (that dealt with the Laughing Man) together.

I've been watching Macross: DYRL again this weekend.  Twice.  I just downloaded a somewhat higher quality version to put to DVD to enjoy all over again.

Dark Butler was kinda shitty.  Pass on the rest of this.

4 eps in, Nyan Koi is getting more fan-servicey with bouncing tits and assembling title-character Junpei's harem.  I almost forgot the point of the show until the cat appeared for help past the half-way point in the 4th ep.  Not a good sign.  Unlike Heath and Jake, I just might have to quit this one.

I started watching Gunsword. I'm on the 9th episode, I think. So far I've enjoyed it. Its good a god balance of humor and action. And I love the little fucking turtle thing.

Ep 5 of Nyan Koi kinda redeemed it, even though there was no cat being helped for the entire episode. 

I pretty much saw all of Chance Pop Session.  It's about a dozen eps long, but it's really an 8 episode story.  Sometimes these things just need to chill out on the filler.

Almost done with Gunsword. I really fucking enjoyed it so far. I tried watching Ep. 25, but the audio on Netflix was fucked up. Hopefully that was only on the 360, I'm gonna try to finish it tonight after work on the Roku. If the audio is still off sync then murder must be appropriate.

I love that Priscilla connects her interface to her bottom under her skirt.

I tried to continue Pretear, something I had seen one ep of years ago on a sampler disc.  I also tried Pandora Hearts.

In Pandora Hearts, we're not four minutes in (if you don't deduct the 90 seconds for the OP and 20 seconds for the beginning to serenely introduce us to a countryside amid flutes) before some lady is already doing that whole screamy BAKA-NANI overdramatic bullshit that's supposed to be funny.  I realize a lot of animes do that, but hell, lady, I don't even know you and you're already screaming at me?  It was really annoying because it started out so lovely and cute with the scenic views and the young siblings hiding in a wardrobe and next thing you know a woman's screaming at you and you just want to smack the shit out of her.  "R U AFRAID OF NEKO, I THINK YOU ARE, DESU!"  Blah, seriously?  It really rubbed me the wrong way.  As I started scanning through the episode, it lost my interest.  The premise and some of the characters looked good, but then I'd see a stupid grin or hear a sentence that made it either feel like a rehash of something else and an adaptation of a bad fanfiction.

As for Pretear, it shared a similar problem.  I swear I could quote Pretear's dialogue and describe the characters and everyone here would have a different guess as to where it came from.  I remember the first episode being decent, too, but I just couldn't sit through this for longer than five minutes.  It's pretty much these mostly androgynous dudes and a couple of "cute" children need this high school chick to help them save the world.  The girl was practically useless in battle and they're all "DOMO ARIGATO KNEW U COULD DO IT DESU!  ALWAYS BELIEVED IN U DESU!"  Well, except for the one cranky one, but there's always one of those.  "WAT-EVA DESU."  The "heroine" didn't even do anything but go all "WAAAAAI!!  WHAT IZ I DOIN DESU!  GOMENASAI!" and they're all praising her.  BLEH.  PASS.

Never heard of it.

But for some reason I've felt like watching Sailor Moon lately. Probably the semi-nude transformation scenes that I'm remembering.

I've finally begun rewatching Escaflowne this week. I'm really liking its pacing and how well it leads into each episode. It's hard to stop watching once you get started. Dilandau still pisses me off, though; I kept thinking, "if Shinji were a narcissistic asshole swordfighter...."

I think the length of that series discouraged me from that one.  Sometimes I get hooked on stuff and have to see the end in the shortest, unhealthiest period of time possible.  That's hard enough when it's a shorter series with, like, 30 eps... let alone something with over a 100.
