I didn't know that! Thanks for telling me! Aaanddd according to Google and Amazon, it doesn't have Japanese audio. Or a new dub. It's just a re-release of what was licensed before, but cheaper and on Blu-Ray. Still neat.

Tokyo Godfathers is getting a BD release soon, by the way.


Also thanks!

I'm actually surprised that retro anime is niche. I mean, I believe you, and I kind of suspected it (because if it wasn't niche, there'd be more of it), but I don't really understand why people would be more interested in an anime just because it's newer.

Here's something else that may or may not truly qualify as "controversial". I was never really able to get into the Yu-Gi-Oh anime, abridged or otherwise. The issue I had with it is actually an interesting one. See, I did like looking at the pictures and flavor text on the cards, simply because of how freaking weird they could be. The problem was that it just didn't translate to the anime.
In the anime, all of those awesome and bizarre creatures are just holographic tokens in a card game, as opposed to it being a fantasy series where they're actually real (if that's changed in the sequel series, feel free to inform me). And that's why I never got into watching Yu-Gi-Oh or any other card game-based anime. I'd much rather be watching a show about the crazy, surreal world hinted at within the card game, than watching people standing around playing it.
Life can seem a challenge. Life can seem impossible. It's never easy when so much is on the line.

... Even if it's playing card games while riding on motorcycles?!?! Image In America.


I watched Yu-Gi-oh! as Joey and 1,000 Dragon had me convinced the show was interested in strategy. Then I saw Yugi beat an opponent by forcing him to run out of cards to draw.

EDIT: Strange... it only shows there's a problem if I reload the page after several minutes, or look at it without being logged in...
