Vandread
 
Whats your opinion about Vandread? :hmm:

dreamless 2004-05-12 08:24

It's great, one of the best series from GONZO.... oh and I think it's licensed.

Yogo_Pogo 2004-05-12 11:33

I saw dvd's of this anime at archambault. I'm gonna buy it because this serie was good. Maybe the second season is not licensed, i only saw the first stage dvd.

Both stages of Vandread has already been licensed for a while.

:topicoff: There's heavy speculation that Cartoon Network has rights to both series of Vandread and is planning to air it on Toonami.

The source? A moderator of the Adult Swim message boards over at AdultSwim.com

Only problem is, many people don't trust the mod because he's the same one who said a few months ago that Home Movies on AS wasn't cancelled... and sure enough, soon afterwards it's last episode aired and no new episodes were ever ordered.

Another reason to be doubtful - last I heard, Geneon was pretty pissed at Cartoon Network over the way Cartoon Network:
a) put Lupin the 3rd at really nasty spots on Adult Swim
and
b) eventually cancelled it
and thus it's said that Geneon doesn't want to deal with CN anymore. Don't know if it's true, but it makes sense - Geneon really wanted Lupin to be sumthin' big here in the US, and when it crashed on CN, they got angry and left. Why else do you think Heat Guy J went to MTV?

My 2 yen (really cheap, by the way ;) ) opinion.

The storyline was, to be honest, thin, and IMHO, didn't hit its stride till (possibly?) the middle of season 2 when it rushed to its conclusion. Art (drawn) was pretty good; the CG was somewhat silly looking but is still good Gonzo. Love the music score, though.

"Love Hina" (or any other harem slapstick comedy anime that you can name really) meets "Lost in Space". :)

A great series. I own the entire first and second stages. The plot isn't something to scream home about, but the characters more than make up for it.

Silver_Scorcher 2004-05-12 15:13

Great series overall. It is lacking in the plot department, but the characters and animation are good. It's also quite ecchi but there's no actual nudity. It's licensed by Geneon (Pioneer at the time) for quite a while now. The dub isn't bad but I'd stick to the Japanese audio for this one. Oh yeah, Barnette is so friggin hot!! :naughty:

Ara^-^ 2004-05-12 15:14

that's a very cool anime and I have the first and second satges :naughty:

Actually, I found this anime to be one of the few where I preferred the dub to the sub. Hibiki just sounds less annoying in the dub.

True, Hibiki does sound better in the dub. But, while IMO I found the acting in the dub very good overall, I don't think alot of the voices matched to the characters being played. In the DUB I'd say Meia, Parfait, Buzam, Magno, Pyoro & Hibiki are dead on. Dita is too, but she sounds more annoying to me in the DUB, which is probably why overall I prefer the Japanese to the DUB. Barnette's voice in the DUB is by far IMO the worst one, both in acting quality & the way she sounds. She's definitely sexier in the Japanese. :)

I, like LynnieS, preferred the second season over the first season. This is because I felt the first season concentrated more on the "harem" concept more than it should have. There was also a LOT of unnecessary fan service, and almost nothing happened to the plot after it was over with.

The second season still used the whole harem idea for the first couple of episodes, but the last eight or nine episodes were really good. It was sort of like Da Capo. You get a bunch of harem crap in the beginning, but then it suddenly transforms into something interesting.

raikage 2004-05-13 02:50

I...really don't know what else I can add. Great graphics, thin plot, but for some strange reason I never got the feeling that the story was written around the CG (Star Wars, anyone?) I'll probably watch it again soon; and I found the dub to be actually really good (although the pilot sounds significantly more gay in English from what I remember).

I own both seasons on dvd and this is my favorite anime.

Although the plot maybe not as deep as those other animes (rahxephon etc), Vandread has a very interesting storyline that is pretty innovative. The animation in the 2nd stage is a lot better than the 1st stage and the plot is better in the 2nd season too. I cried in a couple of the episodes.

Van-what?
 
Hmm Vandread is STUDIO GONZO, which means I HAVE to love it.

Ranko 2004-05-14 13:17

Rider_from_stay_nigh 2006-05-21 11:56

Forbin 2006-05-22 13:36

Well it still is one of the funnier animes out there.

Considering it's a harem it gets bonus points from me! :)
