"IT'S OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAAAAND"

When I first heard of it they called it Knights of the Zodiac.
Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical, liberal minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Ha ha, I'd reserve that for Detective Conan.  Will he ever be cured?

I had heard of it before it was aired as KotZ but a couple of eps of KotZ is all I've ever seen of it.

Knights of the Zodiac was the direct translation from its name in spanish, Caballeros del Zodiaco. I don't know how the people that translated it went from Saint Seiya to that :-/

Maybe the word "saint' was considered too sacred?

Or considering the fact that they don't go around performing miracles, the translators decided to correct Japanese Engrish?
I said its hot outside let me go swimming in your eyes;
We been running for awhile. Why don't you lay dow, I'll make you smile.
I could never ask for nothing better than this;
It's just tequila and the beach, it's quite salty when we kiss.

How does 'Saints' relate to Greek mythology?

I'd start it normally so I knew what the story was about, but I'd inevitably die or get some shitty ending like "and was never seen again".  So then I'd start going back and choosing something else only to find out I still would've died.  Hey, they should totally make ones that include dirty situations for grown-ups, that'd rock.

What if you are reading a book in japanese?

The book still has a front and back.

No, its not. The beginning is in the front. The front of a Japanese book is the cover with the binding towards the right. That is the front, and that is where the beginning is.

Still sticking to my diet of Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood and Nyan Koi.  Nyan Koi's improving and FMA just gets more bad-ass every week.  Haven't been watching any other series as of now.

Watched Hellsing Ultimate III. What the FUCK is it with it being about 49 minutes a disc for an anime series? I'd never pay for that shit. It's like each disc is one bloody episode, or one and a half.

I don't want it to be easy, I want it to be right.

I saw Summer Wars this past Friday.  [Initially was gonna put it in movies, but figured since it's an anime movie, it'll go here.]  Anyway, it's about some kid who accompanies his female upperclassman to her grandmother's birthday celebration under the impression that she needs his help for some sort of job.  Ultimately, some giant-ass online system called Oz effs up and kid, the girl, and the girl's family pretty much have to fix the damn thing before their house explodes.  I'm leaving out a lot, but that's the gist of what happens. 

It has some nice designs and an interesting concept, but it felt lacking in the end.  It spreads its focus on too many characters in my opinion--not bad for a series but not good for a film--and it misses the opportunity of letting more of the story take place in Oz (which was more interesting than the real world in my opinion).  King Kazma and some of the other avatars seemed woefully underused, too.  And it feels schizo that it goes from one type of story--a young boy and his first love--to this entirely different thing at the end where they have to save millions of people (even though to the makers' credit, they don't drop the love story at the end of the film).
