It's official, I love "yesAnime", our anime channel. I woke up at 16:00 after a night shift, and until 00:30 I just watched "12 kingdoms" and "Uninhabited Planet Survival" 'till I went to sleep non-stop.

"12 Kingdoms" (not sure that is the name in english) is one of the coolest anime I've seen. No wonder its supposed to be one of the most successful animes in the world.

I have heard of twelve kingdoms and I really want to see it. Spoose I'll jsut have to wait. As for it's english names I think it is Twelve Kingdoms as it's japanese name is Juuni Kokuki (thank you ANIDB)

Also I rencently watched the american DVD releases of Tenchi Muyo GXP. I watched the first 2 episodes dubbed and had to change to the sub. Now the dubbing was not bad I guess it's just I was used to the japanese voices and the english ones did not seem to suit them as well. Although I also watched the dub for the episode with Tenchi in and to be honest the guy they got for this Tenchi (the normal cast was unavalible just to do one episode) and the lady they got for Ryoko more like I imagined than the when the voices were done by Matt Miller and Petra Buchard (not that those two were bad I just thought Petra made Ryoko sound too old)

Still a fun series to watch.

I'm not into an inordinately extensive variety of anime, but I'm very very very obsessive about the ones I've end up liking. Specific portions of my brain have been solely dedicated to memorising entire scripts of Akira, Spirited Away, Read or Die!, Cowboy Bebop, Grave of the Fireflies, Metropolis, and for some reason Astroboy. But Akira is my aboslute favourite movie ever, and I also find it a matter of heinous critical injustice that the manga did not win the Nobel Prize for Literature each year of its 10-year-odd run in Young Magazine. I adore Akira not because of the super-futuristic set-up or the testosterone-dripping action or even the el bizarro electronic Indonesian background music. I love it because all the art, the action, the gorgeous but just-begging-to-stolen-and-chopped motorcycles and the science-fiction just provide sweet, sweeeeet sugarcoating for some surprisingly deep exploration of ideas that preoccupy the contemporary Japanese consciousness, which weren't really as thoroughly explored in manga and anime until Otomo Katsuhiro came along and kicked the industry's ass in the right direction. Through Tetsuo's transformation from an angst!shonen character into a monster into, yep, a giant biomechanical blob, there are serious evaluations of war, modernity, social decay, political corruption, social ambivalence to government issues and most of all the angry, violent youth cultures such a situation creates.
It's a great anime, I give it a jillion stars. Rase-rase-rase-ra!

Welcome Rongerong.

Anyway, finished Read or Die TV. 

The OVA was better.

Still this was pretty cool.  But I just adore Yomiko, and was pleased as punch when she appeared later in the series.  I won't give away any more than that, becuase that in itself is a bit too much.

I wish the ending had a bit more gunfire and action in it, really the sequence at the Hong Kong institute is the biggest bang for your buck that ROD TV offers, and that happens midway in the series.  Music, again has an incredible funky opening like the OVAs, and I've even messed around with them and the two themes double eachother well, but I digress.  Music throught the series is lavished orchestral strings, backed with some funky stuff, ala James Bond (Since that's the main parody anyhow).  I was upset to see some of my fave characters from the OVA either get shafted or become the new villians, still it held its own. 

Read or Die TV: sure worth the watch.  Not as much slick action or heroines being sexy 'cause they can, but good old fassion book-reading, bullet stopping continental hopping anime spy fun.

Now why aren't I getting any ROD mangas!?

Translate, damn you!

Good Japanese Joke:  In japan the author of a book is referred to as a "Sensei" Just like a teacher or instructor.  Because Nenene publushed a book while in school, and Yomiko was her teacher, they always refer to eachother as sensei.  I swear it never gets old.

Yeah, you'd think that with a title like Read or Die the manga would sell really well, too.

The Big O

Great series, Shitty ending.

I was gonna do a full review, but I figure everybody already saw it on CN last time it ran. 

I love how many well-placed and sometimes hilarous refrences there are in this show:
Batman, Evangelion, Gargoyles, Lum, Power Rangers, Dark City.  Also for extra-obscurity  There's a bit where Angel is wearing a full-length jacket.  She grabs the jacket and rips it off, covering the camera's view for a moment, when the shot clears agian she's in a whole new wardrobe.  Anybody who saw Project A-ko saw this gag when B-ko did it. It's an inside joke, since Emi Shinohara voiced both Angel and B-ko, never the less, a good gag, that I'm glad they put in.  I also like the way the director compared actual interaction with theatrical interaction.  I myself like bending around with that concept, too[/plug]

My only complaint in the whole series is that just when you think OK, cool final battle about to commence, everything just goes anti-climactic in order to fulfill Angel's [still sketchy] sub plot, in which the point of the entire series is entirely nullified.  Remember Andromeda Strain, or hell, any Michael Crichton book?  That kind of Cop-out.

Still, as with so many things (Chrono Cross, The Abyss) with great content, but bad endings, the content really comes out on top.

I'd rate The Big O even higher than Pitt does (it's one of my favorites), but I do kind of agree about the ending.

When I first saw the original thirteen episodes, I didn't have any problem with the cliffhanger ending.  Sure, megadeuses are marching out of the sea to attack Paradigm City, but Roger is at the controls of the Big O, and Dorothy is at his side.  I could create my own closure from that.

Don't get me wrong; I was happy that a second season was made.  As a whole, Season Two was at least as good, if not better than, Season One.  However, the anticlimactic ending left me unsatisfied and wanting more.

Still, it does feature the final battle between Behemoth and Leviathan at the end of the world, so it has that going for it.

the planet has about a 40% chance of surviving, and usually, if it does survive, it will either be largely damaged, or another world with earthlike characteristicswill be badly damaged or dfestroyed.

Fear not, Nurdy.  The world as we know it may end, but it will be reborn in a new form.  Roger Smith still protects his city, and the last episode of The Big O ends in the same way that the first episode began, with the same scenes of Roger driving his car through the streets of the city.  Of course, there is one difference: Dorothy and Angel are there waiting for him when he arrives at home.

I kinda agree with Pitt and David about the ending. Big O is one of my favorite shows, but the ending to season 2 is kinda dissapointing, making me want more. But, I am happy there was a second season. I  love the show.

Sorry about that, Nurdy.  I considered putting that post in spoiler tags, but since it was directed at you there really wouldn't have been any point.

If it makes you feel any better, knowing about the final scene doesn't completely tell you what the ending is.  Besides, even if I did spoil the ending for you, The Big O is still worth watching, because the ending isn't the best part anyway.

It's a well known fact that if sequals/parodies/spin offs/rehashes are not done properly, they blow and die.

Puni Puni Poemy

It was like having every corner of my brain simultaneously raped by the biggest, hairiest, grungiest biker types ever to scourge the highways of backwater Australia.

You see, Puni Puni Poemi is a spin-off of Excel Saga.

Had you watched Excel Saga before seeing it, your brain would have been all lubed up for it's thorough raping.

Well I have not seen the anime (and I know they American version has been butchered) but I have read alot of the manga and I love it.

I mean pirates, super powered freaks, clowns and talking Reindear...what's not to like (well I don't like clowns but this one was fun).

Although watching the trailers I do not know if I could stand the American voice for Luffy.

I'm really digging Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex.  The show is coming into the final few episodes of its 26 episode run and it looks like it might end on a cliff hanger.  Does anyone know if there is more of this show out there than what Adult Swim will show?  I know the original aired around 2002 in Japan.  It had me wondering if there was a second season made.  I'll be bummed if there isn't more.
