Besides, it needs to hang round for the glorious day when it gets moved to the DVD & Licensed forum.

Now I'm no marketing expert, but this thread has had 107k views - second only to Rozen Maiden in the Fansubs forum. Yes, the numbers are skewed by 2005's Unfortunate Event and Haruhi getting its own sub-forum; but even so, there are a whole bunch of us here who want to give you our money. You know what to do.)

And damn yes, I want this to be licensed. I'll even buy the DVDs one by one whereas I normally always wait for cheap boxsets.

I'm actually confused with the ending. I think this shouldn't end this way. I love to see more Limone and Dominura. They're still doing Ri Margion meaning that we should have 4 eternal maidens left instead of two right? Wow Dominura was beautiful. So no mentioning of Amuria? I think there's lots of hole..probably they planned for second season? I don't like to see them all separated like that

With this kind of ending... I don't see room for a second season. Maybe an OVA. Maybe.

I think that the ending is fitting. One of Simoun's core messages is that life goes on even when it seems like it will (or you wish it would) stop. The rest of Chor Tempest has no idea what really became of Aaeru and Neviril - why should we? They don't know where Amuria went, either. Heck, they may not even know what happened to some of the ones they went to the Spring with. Considering how life really goes, I think we got a lot of insight into how everyone turned up. Their lives aren't resolved yet, and hence the story itself shouldn't be resolved.
Plus, it gives us way more stuff to argue over

Simoun cast and staff in fall shows

I think we'll keep coming back here for quite a while, but as far as new shows are concerned, we seem to have come to this anime from a lot of different directions, so I imagine we'll be going to our scattered realms.

For myself, I don't see anything as interesting as this in the fall line-up. But then I didn't realize Simoun would be so great until I watched it. I'll keep watching NANA and Bokura ga Ita, which continue through the fall, and are for me the only two shows on now which are in Simoun's league. Two different kinds of romances, both with great scripts and terrific voice-acting. And maybe I'll have time to catch up on Saiunkoku Monogatari, where Kuwashima Houko (Guraghief) is beyond praise for her excellent work as the heroine. It continues through the fall, too.

Among the new shows, Hataraki-man, in the Noitamina Thursday-night slot looks interesting (starts Oct 12). About a workaholic woman editor. More Honey&Clover on caffeine than Simoun, though, it seems.

I have made a graphic calendar of the fall season, showing what days and times shows are on TV in Japan, and giving highlights of staff and cast for most of them. Link in my sig, with a highlights post in the hashihime blog. Maybe this is my opportunity for an information-dump about who from the Simoun staff and cast will be working on what this fall:

Studio Deen's next offering is Shounen Onmyouji, a magical powers show, but from a josei (young women's) magazine. The script is by the woman who wrote Turn A Gundam, Wolf's Rain, Geneshaft and five episodes of Noein. The sound director did Haibane Renmei and Princess Tutu. And the OP was composed by Kajiura Yuki, who is/was in See-Saw with Ishikawa Chiaki, who did Simoun's OP.

I'll be watching at least the first episodes of Ayakashi Ayashi (monsters attack Edo, again) just to hear Niino Michi (Aaeru) in another role. And because the main writer on Simoun wrote it.

And I'll look at Ghost Hunt because Nazuka Kaori (Yun) is the star. She also stars in Gin-iro no Olynssis, a show that seems like post-apocalyptic mecha, but the blurb says something about time and space being uncertain and a boy's door to fate. I'll look at Code Geass, an SF adventure, partly because Yukana (Dominura) is one of the stars, and also because the whole cast is unbelievable (including Nazuka Kaori and Koshimizu Ami), and the writer and director did PlanetES.

Takahashi Mikako (Rodoreamon) stars in Mamoru-kun ni Megami no Shukufuku wo! and is also in Super Robot Wars and Black Blood Brothers. Noto Mamiko (Limone) is in Mamoru-kun, too, and Okada Mari, who wrote many episodes of Simoun, is the main writer.

Sahashi Toshihiko, who did the amazing music for Simoun, writes the music for Black Blood Brothers.

Kuwashima Houko (Guraghief) has joined Toyoguchi Megumi (Alti) for Black Lagoon 2. Morinaga Rika (Mamiina) is continuing in Chokotto Sister.

Noto Mamiko (Limone) is back for a second season of Jigoku Shoujo. Koshimizu Ami (Paraietta) shows up in Code Geass, Kujibiki Unbalance, and Gift-Eternal Rainbow. And Matsuki Miyu (Anguras) is in Soukou no Strain and Otome wa Boku ni Koi Shiteru, which seems to be the closest thing to yuri available this fall (girls fall in love with a guy dressed as a girl). Red Garden, a supernatural mystery, doesn't have an all-female cast, but five women are the stars.

The calendar has links to the Anime News Network information on all the shows and most of the cast and staff members.

Oh, and sorry, warainagara, I didn't realize "Yunashia" was a joke. I guess because I kind of hoped they'd merged myself.

ep. 26. Pretty fitting ending I suppose. I'll give it a 8 of 10.

Spoiler for saw some posts on the wall art:


Spoiler for Onashia explained her story to Yun :


Spoiler for Did you hear the final girls synopsis about :


I have to wonder with future past tense mixing if ALL slowly morph to a new reality sooner or later without even knowing it.

Really really glad I got to see this one, and it sparked some of the funniest things I have ever read and Never thought or even believed could be typed in a forum

Hello! I haven't watched Simoun yet, but I'm planning to now. Can anyone recommend a subber for Simoun? Who's the best Simoun subber out there?

Thanks! =)

Watching it again tonight, I was also thinking about the episode title: Their Portraits. A portrait isn't a biography, it captures a person at a brief moment in their lives. Maybe if the artist is good enough, you can spot little details that tell you something about where the person has come from and where they're going. But in the end all you have is that moment, that eien no ima captured on canvas.

Which is precisely what I think we got.

Welcome! You've made an inspired choice

For subs, the only game in town is Simoun-Fans. Slight complication is they picked up the show at episode 4, so they've only recently been able to go back and sub the earlier episodes. Doremi also subbed 1-5, but I'd recommend Simoun-Fans where possible because their subs generally have the benefit of more hindsight.

We all know this, but I just wanted to ask again, why can their priestesses speak the langage of Simulacrum
In episode eigth it's mentioned that many Plumbian priestess come from the border area with Simulacrum. There are apparently some clans who move back and forth through the border regularly. Also because of the similarities of the deities, some derivative of the Simulacran language might be some sort of holy language for these priestess, kind of like Latin for Catholics, which would make it easy for them to study the language of their enemies. I think something about that was mentioned in later episodes but I am not sure.
