Someone damn well better translate that novel. I am DYING to see how it stacks up against its AMAZING TV counterpart.

BTW, I know making a game from TV or movies is risky business, but which of these ideas of mine would you say is the least likely to fail?

- RPG retelling the anime, using the Planescape Torment engine
- RPG after the anime with both new and returning characters (I've even thought of some myself), using an updated Betrayal at Krondor engine with a hint of Disgaea
- sword fighting game, using the Samurai Shodown 5 engine

Mcdonalds, I didn't think it was exactly "too perfect" an ending. I think it was more of one that needed to be explained more. It was too rushed. If they would have taken an extra 2 episodes and streached out a few of the sections in the story and cut a few scenes in there that I considered to be just filler fat (why do anime makers always gotta add worthless fat to their shows. sheesh) they could have ended it quite a bit better. Because in my book the ending was good, but underexplained in many areas.

The ending was only slightly better than that of The Matrix Revolutions

Yea, i agree with the ending was way too rushed, although you can kind of get the gist of how it ended e.g. chris and winia are wedded and pacifica lead a normal life. However, maybe they intended to do that to leave it open ended? so that it allows it to open up another series if they wanted it or to allow the viewer to 'create' their own ending. Most likely not. What i meant by that it was a little to perfect is that how pacifica and forcis are given their lives back, everyone lives happily ever after and that everything is happy. I'm not saying that its a bad series, not even saying it was a good series, i thought its one of the best ones i've seen. However, i don't think every anime is perfect and i was just giving an opinion on how i interpreted it and how I THOUGHT it COULD have been improved.

Edit: how did you think of the relationship between cz/sim and shannon/pacifica/raquel, i thought it would have been expanded upon especially with the earrings and this was one of the character/relationship development that had disappointed me.

Actually, after watching it a few times, the guy you see in the stable is actually Shannon, not Forcis. I thought it was Forcis at first as well, but upon closer examination it's actually Shannon.

As far as the charecter development goes, they did a good job, but at the same time they could have done a lot more.

SP was great but the ending was a bit of a let down for me, pacifica should have stayed dead, i mean she came back with little explaination which just created the feeling that she's invincible and so what's all that protecting her in all the previous eps.? but good story and animation too

Scrapped Princess

Has anybody seen this anime? The story is very good and the animation itself is good too. The DVD cost 19.99 (U.S Dollars of course) at Best Buy. So far, I have all 5 volumes and waiting for the last one which will come out this month. Anyway, what do you guys think of this anime?

Scrapped Princess DVD Artbox (R1)

I'm not sure whether it's appropriate to start a new thread for this, but it didn't seem likely that I would receive a response had I posted at the end of a long-dead discussion topic.

Ever since disc 1 was released, I've been trying to find information on retail and review sites about whether the limited edition of disc 1 comes with an artbox to hold the other discs in the series. I know it comes with a figure in a box, but that's not what I'm interested in.

If anyone here has the limited edition version of disc 1, could you tell me whether it came in a box with space to hold the other five DVDs?

There is no artbox for Sutepri. The only purpose of the box was to contain the figure that was included with it. The same is true for vols. 2-6.

Red face wrong track

I think you all are in the wrong track; the fact is that you guy are kind of confuse about the relationships of the characters. what I mean is the fact is that pacifica alway like her big brother( shannon); remember the first volume of the anime when pacifica said something to shannon. On the other hand fulle are just a replacement at the time; know this why his look and attitude are like shannon. and the fact that they are not relate by blood, childhood memory are how relationship are develop in most animes. As for Leo, he seen to be inaffective in the story line.
