At first I have to say I really like the show it's kinds cool, but it's REALLY FUNNY there are some people in this forum saying Meg and Jo are NOT similar to Rei and Asuka. At first when I watched the first episode I was totally pised off, because I hate it when characters are just stolen (like in Cosprayers *aww*), but now I'm okay with it, they gave Jo/Rei this Berserker-Touch and that's pretty cool ^_^
But here now just a little picture for you...I think they are totally the same

That's only because they really aren't similar in any way. Yes, i will admit that they resemble the characters in question in appearance to some degree, but their personality is way off.
Like i said before, that's just a rather clever trick that Gonzo pulled on this show, it's just an element spoof, they try to catch the viewers attention by incorporating cameo/deja-vu situations and mix it with their own story flow. There were so many posts by so many people that mentioned elements from BGC, Nadesico, EVA, Noir, Vandread and whatnot...which shows us that it was a job well done, they caught the attention of people. Characters cannot be stolen in a sense, since they are part of something bigger, an idea which is represented as a single sovereign story..it's own universe, if you will. Different animators/artists may try to copy appearance but they can't catch the soul of a given character without its own, special story.

On a sidenote: that's the reason why i can't compare Rei and Jo and i wouldn't be able to tell to whom i would feel more attracted to, since they are entities from different "universes". I however can say, that in the case of Baku Ten i like Jo the most of the whole cast, and in the case of EVA i prefer Rei.

And finally, that's a great picture..the opening image that Lunar uses. I have to get that one as a wallpaper..pronto^^

Btw her name is JOE, not JO. Lunar apparently didn't deem it necessary to actually check the *official website* for names and background info. That is the first thing any group should do if they want an accurate translation and release...

Ahem... From Ep 1:



JO is how they spell it in the anime. Call it a mixup by Gonzo.

True, i'm influenced by Lunars subs and how the actually pronounce her name.
But i have to say that JO just fits a whole lot better than JOE.
Have you ever seen the official names of some Gundam Seed characters...they were major brain farts, and i still refuse to use them. Be it official or not, as long as the idea is conveyed i'm fine with it.

Err... exactly from the picture you provided, it looks they are not similar after all... they are as different as any two different anime characters can get, if that says something

Besides they have completely different personalities... and that's the important part.

and her name is Jo in the advertisement in episode 1, so I guess either Jo or Joe should be fine.

Come on people, its simple, both are acceptable!

It was the same thing as Gungrave's Brandon/Blandon (both names appeared as well in the anime ).

Jo looks better + it says Jo *IN* the episode...
The site designer probably just misunderstood...

Mr. Jedinight, perhaps you should research more yourself before attacking our hard work...

Yeah, with Jo being a girl I think dropping the 'e' for the spelling is more appropriate. Girls I've met who were named Jo almost always had the 'e' dropped in the spelling, which was a lot of times how I could tell apart a female Joe from a male Joe. This might not be a universal thing, but it's from my experience.

This series is really GANGSTA.

I didn't expect ep.2 to be available any time soon, Great fansubbing job by Lunar.

I've only seen 2 episodes but I can tell you this show is the shiznee, bra! Damn, hot chicks galore, you know what I mean. I think this is by far the best show to come out this year!

Congratulations to both of you, you passed the initial test. You may now deem yourself worthy of being proud fans of our beloved Baku Ten show. Rejoyce brothers and sisters and let us all show our appreciation for the brilliant Lunar fansub jobs so far.^^

Funny that you mention Nadesico's Akito... Kyohei is voiced by the same actor, Yuuji Ueda...

I am wondering about Lunar's sub for episode 2... What exactly was up with that "Noh" = "Ah, I seerebrum" line?

that line is "nou?" which should be "brain?", I guess the "Ah, I seerebrum" is some messed up TS or something.

seerebrum...cerebrum...brain?

I'm guessing that's what it is...maybe it's a joke?

I concur the line is "Nou?"->"Brain?".

It is a mistranslation but how did they mistranslate it into seerebrum? What the heck is seerebrum? You certainly cannot find it in a dictionary...

Hmm... maybe one of the translator wanted to translate it to "Ah, I see", while another wanted to translate it to "cerebrum", so they finally reached a compromise and make it "Ah, I seerebrum"

I'm not the TL of bakuten...
I'm guessing it's a play on the word "cerebrum"... I doubt such an odd mispelling would pass by all the editors and QC team... (seems almost intentionally mispelled)
->
cerebrum

n : anterior portion of the brain consisting of two hemispheres; dominant part of the brain in humans

which nou does mean...

Serious? Mad! I love this new show even more now, it has a very Nedesico feel to me.

Props to Lunar For subbing it with such speed. I hope the continue the trend.

Hmm... have you watched Lunar's release of baku-ten 2? How could "Ah, I seerebrum" be a play on the word "cerebrum"? what does "Ah, I seerebrum" mean anyway? It sounds like you haven't really watched it and are just "guessing" stuffs here?
