(Legend of) Condor Hero Discussion
 
Okay, Live-eviL has released ep 15 of Condor Hero and it's an awesome episode. This show is really getting better with each ep! :)

Now, new rule, no more bitching about condor hero releases for at least 2 more weeks

-Tofu :nono:

All hale ye who calls himself tofusensei,he has provided us with are fix of the dangerous drug know only as Condor Hero.

And i swear i wont bitch about 16,just to let you know i didnt really bitch,well i did at tanman for telling us all that he was goning to watch it like 2 weeks ago.He was just rubbing it in are faces.

Keitaro 2003-11-09 04:22

Yeah 15 is out im dloading it now, i cant wait. Thanks Tofu

Koshiba 2003-11-09 05:05

Thank you so much~! I'm downloading it now. :D I'm *loving* Condor Hero so much! I can't believe I had never heard of it and I'm glad I randomly downloaded it one day. ^-^ Ooh I can't wait~

Miscreant 2003-11-09 05:47

Okay, I won't bitch. I will however, shake my fits at the sky and wonder why oh why must the only episode we're likely to see for the next few weeks, end on such a cliffhanger?

I've been waiting for months to see Youka -- for lack of a good euphemism -- kick someone's ass, with his new martial arts techniques.

Does that count as bitching? If it does, I'll temper it with a little praise. Great job on this episode guys. Condor Hero is one of the rare animes that I can instantly get back into, even if I haven't seen an episode in a while.

On a side note, was Condor Hero ever released on DVD in Japan?

Keitaro 2003-11-09 06:26

Just finished watching this episode and I gotta say it was awsome, words cannot explain what I felt when (well u could guess what im going to say but i dont wanna spoil it). In this episode I think I felt what Youka was feeling. Nooooo another two weeks again till the next release, but i'll wait quietly. :)

I just watched it. Unfortunately the animation for fights is just terrible. Must be a really tight budget.

LynnieS 2003-11-09 13:44

Miscreant - Not that I had found. If a R2 version came out in DVD, it was likely a short run.

The anime, though, is available as a Cantonese dub on YesAsia.com, but they're no longer carrying the first 12 episodes. The last batch, episodes 13 through 26, is available.

Tofusensei 2003-11-09 13:49

Trust me, if there were any available better raws than the one L-E is using, I would have personally bought them the second they were available. :/

I think it's pretty good, considering it was done in 2001. usually older things pale in comparison when surrounded by the bleeding edge.

Keitaro 2003-11-09 18:05

I really don't care too much about the animation quality I think the animation level is bearable hardly noticeable. Any fan of CH knows its the story that counts, the story is simply amazing.

Koshiba 2003-11-09 19:02

Ah! Now I'm dying for the next episode~ I really wish it had been released on R2 DVD because I would *so* buy it. =/ All I can hope for now is maybe someone licensing it .:cough:. ..anywone? lol.

This was a pretty good episode I think. ^_^; I was waiting for him to start showing off his skills. But I cannot wait to see what happens next! X_X

kvi 2003-11-09 20:02

Man I love this series! After watching episode 15, I was so hyped up I felt like running around. :heh: Keep up the good work!

I don't think Mongolians will appreciate you calling them that. The author never depicated the Mongol characters as particulary evil, they are "bad" because of political reasons(though they rape and pillage). Most the really evil individuals are Han Chinese and there are quite a few good Mongolians.

The Mongolians were the "good" guys till the end of The Legend Of The Condor Heroes when Ghengis Khan invaded The Song Empire, thus the Song people hated the Mongols, and this topic of hatred between these two nations will be further explored in the sequel, Heaven Sword And Dragon Sabre, where the distinction between good and bad guys are tackled.

Pretty good episode, but then I already know the story as I've read the Chinese novel. ^_^

:D..yeap...the animators are being payed minimum wage...result is a terrible fighting scenes...I curse my boss everyday (not outloud) and do as little as possible:D..So I can relate to the animators..But I have to say what the drawing lacks, the story makes up for it..overall a definitely addictive anime...

I guess there's little hope of finding the novels in English? :sad:

Mind you, I'm not bitching, but from time to time I have this dream where L-E pulls off another "You're Under Arrest 2nd Season Release" and releases all of Condor Hero in one day. :heh:

<sigh> Those were days. I even still remember poor Misuzu. Alas, I knew her well. A girl of infinite bandwidth :love:

Tofusensei 2003-11-10 00:54

hehe!! The good old days!! ^_^;;;

But I think if the public found out we were hoarding CH eps, I'd probably receive death threats daily!

Jinx626 2003-11-10 03:00

I am sorta confused on why Koko was acting all lovely dubby with Youka in this episode...those who have seen the Return of the Condor heroes tv drama or read the novels could answer this. Has Koko forgiven Youka for the incident/misunderstanidng in Ep 8?? Or has she found out the truth??
