My dumb joke was never intended to generate such a lingering tangent... The etymology of "gaina-" was just posted with citations. Offhand I can't find any websites in Japanese that note (in a really obvious way) any direct correlation between the "X" and robot names....

Best Buy will not carry the Gurren Lagann rerelease (the one that includes the English audio) in their stores due to the First part of the rerelease not doing as well as they would have liked.

cat42: You're on a first-name basis with Sadamoto? Yes. We go bowling on Sundays (though I call him Yotchan to his face) It was established that we'd be getting a "new character", also. It's also quite evident that lots of Sadamoto's characters bare striking resemb...

the fact that they look similar to me is either
A) "Wishful" Thinking
B) Because they are the same character
C) A testament to Yoshiyuki's lack of creativity.

One of my theories:
Mari is an elaboration of this character

She will serve a similar purpose, and be an Eva Pilot. She'll be a secondary character.

Gaina means "big" in a specific regional dialect. (iirc)
It's in the Notenki Memoirs, I can look this up Monday or Tuesday night when I get home.

The Australian subtitles (which I'm convinced are the festival subtitles) translate the line as:
"lt takes one old fox to know another, l guess."

They released DBZ widescreen in America before it was even released that way in Japan! The problem with that is, DBZ was made for 4:3. The cels and film always have more than you usually see, so Funi's new master gains stuff on the side but at the same time they crop off what was on top and bot...

FUNimation Entertainment seems to me like a company who wants to keep anime fans happy. Shikabane Hime, for example, is available online, for free, legally a couple weeks after it airs in Japan. Hell Girl came with art cards, and extras like actor interviews and such with each DVD. They release half...

PREDICTION/THEORY:
FUNimation Entertainment Licensed 1.11. They put it online as 1.01 so as not to let the cat out of the bag before Japan announced that they were releasing 1.11.

[VIDEO] Evangelion TV series to get Blu-Ray release?

According to Sankaku Complex (Probably NSFW) along with the release of Evangelion 1.11, there will be a Blu-Ray release of The original TV series.

Sankaku Complex wrote:Additional releases of the TV series’ latest digital remaster for DVD and Blu-ray will begin on May 27, starting with episodes 1~6.

And damn those Khairax bastards. What exactly are they going to be "remastering" here? It's a digital film, for crissake. "Remastering" is just a fancy way of saying "giving them what they should've gotten the first time around", amirite? Remastering basically ...

They have several of them, sadly though, they don't seem to ship those outside of Japan. I bet it's merchandising rights or something.

I think they'll only ship DVDs, books, and CDs internationally, however.

Damn, and I'd thought I'd found a loophole.

Just so you know, Amazon.co.jp has some of the Evastore products (not all though) and they ship internationally (or at least to America) for some though, not all.
