uhhhh.... yeah? :uhh:

Sure, it's not impossible that you manage to convince me otherwise in principle but I can't say that feels like a likely outcome :tongue:

I just finished watching the two episode Ninja Turtles OVA. It was bizarre and mostly nonsensical, but it did seem to focus on Shredder, which was cool. :grin:

They don't interest me or at least not now, sorry Mr. Tines.


Alrighty, Orguss episode 1! So the episode starts off with the main character named Kei running from some old guy after knocking up his daughter and getting away on a motorcycle thanks to his friend named Olson. Both of them happen to be fighter pilots of Broncos (think GEWALKER mode minus everything other than legs) and on this misison they activate the Space-Time Oscillation Bomb, which transports Kei to a world filled with flying chicken walkers, talking mini-iguanadons, and women with tentacles from their backs. So yeah, that pretty much sums up what I just watched. :lol:

Can't handle cute girls doing manly things, I see. Not homoerotic enough, then?

I think you're looking too deep into that.

Not fare. :irked:

Watched Hanasaku Iroha. It was ok, though the ending reeked of fake drama. Also, Ohana's mom is now extra awesome.

It's not? *has not seen subbed version, yes I'm serious*



Anyway, Orguss episode 2! In this episode we learn the fact that Kei is a very aggressive pervert (no wonder he had a small harem), he has to be the most assertive real robot pilot I've ever seen. So yeah, apparently the story of what went on is that the big TSO Bomb merges multiple dimensions together and now the planet is in chaos (although the jungle they're in just has the problem of having Chilam patrols). Kei tries to run away and kind of fails, giving us a cliffhanger for the next episode. I will say this much about the series this far: It's definitely more edgy than Macross and the trailers sure as hell don't seem like troll bait.

Got around to Redline finally.

Image
Can't believe this screenshot hasn't taken off on /a/...

The ending is a bit abrupt, but really there wasn't a whole lot else they could have done...it's pretty obvious from the beginning that JP doesn't care about the larger political situation in the slightest, nor even the money particularly, and the narrative is geared towards bringing out what he does care about, not explaining the dirty laundry of the Roboworld military-industrial complex or whatever. The giant monster hatesex is eye-candy, the hot green-haired chick is the plot. (And +1 to Enokido and whoever else for making Sonoshii a tolerable character by the way, The Woman Whose Vagina Is The Purpose Of The Story is a cliche seldom interesting to watch)

Regular intonation also.
(I hate subs because for some reason they all seem to be yellow and consequently is an eye sore, so I have to then switch it off, and dubs I hate because I do not need it and my ear starts to hurt. I try to buy the original Japanese BD/DVD instead of western releases unless I get desperate)

I know you said some other stuff, but this is the most important part, and the reason that I continue to remember Redline as a great film rather than a good film. Sue me - I'll still believe Sonoshee is awesomely hot. Or is it Sonoshii now? It was Sonoshee in the Madman sub...

Watched the new Hanasaku Iroha episode.

Something tells me that I´m not going to like the ending.

Okay, Orguss episode 3! Obviously Kei survives the ambush and decides to stay with Emaans not based on safety or survival but rather the fact that they have good food and he can hook up with four different women (no, really, that's his actual reasoning). The Chilam is basically going "Oh s**t we better start acting serious" because of them having a good track record or something, which probably won't help them considering they're currently the only mooks in any media I've seen that CRASHED INTO EACH OTHER WITH THEIR ISHKICKS WHEN THEY HAD ENOUGH ROOM TO DODGE! Seriously, what idiots. Finally the ep ends with them buying a mu robot (who's name they never said) who's pretty much going to be the typical tag along. Next episode features a breast shot (no joke, it was in the preview) and the arrival of Orguss.

Well, I can safely say Xard will hate this series, it's actually kind of fun so far.
