Nope. He's sitting watching tv together with Ryumin and her butler

Shinsen came out with the sub today. It's the first thing to come out too, which puts me behind in my summaries an episode. Oh well, I'll be caught up by Wednesday still.

Oh. My bad.

Maybe he'll walk outdoors, fire a few shots into the air, and then wait for them to land on the people on-screen.

We need to set up an online survey to see how many people want Wang's hair to stay straight. Everyone would (should) vote yes!

Also, I LOL'd at the TV speech of Marina, if anyone cared to look at the lower right side of the TV screen.

letting marina know who setsuna is, is the writer trying to imply some special relationship between those two....beside the fact that they are both from the sane waring states

I prefer Shinsen-Subs. Nyoro~n seems a bit prone towards hyperbolizing character dialogue and I've found in some situations their translation can change the tone of entire conversations and thus the whole point.

Watched the Conclave-Mendoi sub of Ep13.

So, the Exia-Enact Ali Custom was pretty well done, and the episode in general wasn't too bad, but I could really have done without Mr. Green Hornet. I mean, WTF? I like kung-fu flicks where the martial artists dodges bullets just fine, but doing it in a "realistic" Gundam show is just a bit much.

Otherwise, not too bad. 8/10, but I am really, REALLY wishing that they'll stop with these 2/3 episode arcs and get on with the main story at this point.

Obviously you've never seen G Gundam have you? Gundam 00 seems to have been in an homage mode for the past 3-4 or so episodes. I've spotted:

- The Zeon Insignia on a building,
- Kyrios' Zeta style transformation,
- Lockon's Haro collection that is similar to Lacus'
- Dynames pulling a Heavyarms by having hidden missile hatches in its stomach and chest
- The HRL attack formation being like the Zaku formation in the Battle of Loum scene at the beginning of each original Mobile Suit Gundam episode
- Allelujah mimicking Char's Zaku Kick

and even references to non-Gundam series by Sunrise like:

- The HRL transport in episode 10 looking exactly like the Idaho from Dragonar
- Soma doing Dunbine's flying drop kick on the Virtue's beam cannon.

- Hell there's even a reference to a non Sunrise series in the way Lockon destroying the HRL ship looks the same as what happen in Macross with the Daedelus attack.

I can't help but feel that Hong Long is supposed to be our Domon Kashuu or Sai Saici.

Also, again people, the character you are all thinking of was named Kato and was played by Bruce Lee. The Green Hornet was just a guy that used a stun gun and the odd sucker punch to take down his adversaries and happened to be Kato's master. Kato was the martial arts master, and also wears a black mask much like Hong Long, whereas Britt Reid donned a green mask to become the Green Hornet.

not much of a difference to me but you do see a little drop off in quality on certain shows but you really have to look hard some times to notice(i dont notice it in Gundam 00). Nothing tho that would stop me from using MKV(h264) cuz the file size is usually lower. you'll notice that they have the SD versions and a HD version in mkv for Gundam 00. The HD MKV one is broadcast in 1080x720 which looks outstanding for Gundam 00. The SD ones are 704x400 but still look great itself. Conclave-Mendoi outclasses Shinsen-Subs and Nyoro in quality when it comes to these options to choose from. Most people still download the Xvid from them the most tho. Apparently theirs still not enough people that can either play the HD one well or just decide they dont need the HD one cuz the SD looks very good itself and its file size is low.

Keep in mind that my opinion has no weight on a technical aspect, just what i see. h264 i believe was designed to have a better compression ratio than xvid but equal in quality to xvid. Thus meaning smaller size file for the same quality, i just dont believe thats the case for every show/movie when it comes to encoding them.
