Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne
Finally, I did it!
Nearly a year passed away since I begin downloading Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne (anime).
I downloaded and watched all episodes. Today, I finished the anime with the last episode.
I was both disappointed and moved with the ending episode.
Marrons' parents throughout the entire anime (this episode included) never did they showed up in real time. Only during flashbacks sequences and the second OP video.
I think the last showdown between Jeanne (Marron) v.s. Da-Tenshi Fin was slightly anti-climatic plus fast paced.
I felt the ending was incompleted. Like if it needs something more to be filled up. There was something missing.
Chiaki proved to be fairly useful for the final episode, supporting and encouraging a nearly distressed, defeated Marron.
Da-Tenshi Fin, IMO, demonstrated to be a quite elaborated villainess.
Because I'm such a sentimental guy, Marron's speech toward Fin moved me very much.
Just like I said, the anime is practically 90% a plethora of filler episodes.
Only the last eight episodes are worth enough to watch and left me with a cliffhanger.
The problem I encountered with the anime ending is, like I said before, it was incompleted and rushed. It needed something more; finishing up to 44 episodes it was not enough time to fully develop Da-Tenshi Fin into a more serious villainess, if I recall that she returns in episode 41.
Besides it left me with two important doubts at the end:
The anime finale ended with a cliffhanger. Well, that's what I felt.

So Joan of Arc was just featured on deadliest warrior and this got me wondering about various manga and anime based on her and I found out about this one. I didn't make the connection when I heard the name before, that's pretty cool.
Apparently there are other manga out there without anime yet. http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/ency...ga.php?id=2646 Joan is a more specific manga.
She has also been featured in Ashita no Nadja (very good series) in a flash back where she planted flowers in a field.
I did not get very far in the Shaman King series (watched some on TV, only own first DVD volume) but apparently this later character is also based on Joan: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Maiden_Jeanne
AfterSchool Charisma: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afterschool_Charisma is another new manga which sounds kinda like Clone High. I really hope they make an anime of this too.
Apparently she's also been in Hetalia Axis Powers episode 10 in relation to the hundred years war. Has anyone shipped her + France yet?
"D'arcmon" also is apparently in the 7th Digimon movie. Her attack "La Pucelle" reminds me of that videogame that preceded Disgaea where Priere and Baal originated.
A "St. Joan" card is also apparently used in episode 107 of the Yu-Gi-Oh anime.
I own the Witchblade DVD collection but haven't watched it yet, but I heard Joan is a Witchblade wielder in it so this sounds like a good reason to see it too.
