Considering the amount of screen time females have gotten in the first four episodes ... I just find that director's quote in the spoiler endlessly amusing. Sure the center of the show is the "coming of age / buddy" dynamic but that "ranged sniper" is definitely an important part of the team and repeatedly a story catalyst in what we've seen so far.

Actually, it's true that she hasn't been in the spotlight thus far. Fittingly for a sniper; in not only combat action, but I think that her contribution to plot, while major, has mostly been from the background (motivating Simon, unknowingly setting up the meeting with Viral, being last to join the team as they left, and in episode 5, literally bringing down the Ganmen); except in the first episode, when she was really at the forefront (soon eclipsed by Kamina, tho).

Vexx 2007-05-07 20:28

That's why I used the term catalyst -- not much is required to send the other ingredients spinning in new directions or combinations :)

I was just wondering which torrents don't have that annoying time displayer. Does anyone here happen to know?

Most of them say "clock-less". Also, TV Japan's.

Thanks 7Th. Also one more question, I heard that the scripts for all the episodes have already been made. My question is how many episodes long is this series supposed to be?

I've been wanting to ask this for a while now, but keeps slipping my mind.

We all know the Kobayashi/GL 4 fiasco, and that due to the negative response to the change, there wasn't going to be anymore experimenting and all episodes post-4 retained a similar sense of direction and style.

Whether or not people like GL4 and Kobayashi's style/direction is something for somewhere else, but I would like to know if we knew any other "styles" or guest animation directors/stuff they were planning to bring into GL before it was canned?... I dunno, like Yuasa?

That information was never revealed and I'm pretty sure the episodes aired up to this point were aired how they were originally supposed to be aired. Nevertheless, Yuasa wouldn't be as experimental as Kobayashi to be honest, at least he wouldn't use an slide-show animation in the eyes of the public.

I watched only the first episode of this show. It has a very FLCL feel to it, does anyone agree? Is there any connection between the shows i.e. producers, animators, etc.

Are they gonna decipher Rossiu's book anytime soon?

According to Gainax's website, every character except for Simon, Yoko, Viral and Old Coco now have surnames. Though, their surnames are just the names of the villages (or in Nia's case, the beastman's former capital). Though this isn't that bad, as we learned that the Black Brethren came from a village called "Bachika".

What's the difference between Nia and Hanrasen Nia?

They're pretty much the same person... to certain degree. Hanrasen Nia is Nia after her Anti-Spiral genetic code activated and closed-off her human feelings. Think of it as Darker than Black's contractors but with a purpose.
