I just watched episode 12, and all I can say is that this show just keeps getting better. My main homie Howard was pretty awesome in this episode for sure! I might even be starting to hate Sharla less. I really liked the ending of the episode, Howard is starting to seem a little more a part of the gang now.

I agree, the episodes just keep getting better and better. I think it's becuase they're slowly introducing all the characters and any back stories they have, that way all the characters have depth.

I dunno about Howard though, I still don't think he's learned his lesson, I can see another ep or two coming pretty soon where he crushes the hous with the help of Pague, or something like that.

But then again, he wouldn't be Howard if he wised up and stopped doing stupid things.

I love this show, and I love all the characters, since they all play different roles in the story. The character development is awesome!

Just watched episode 13 and at the start I wasn't too sure how much I was going to like this one. This episode is of course once again the best one so far, although I didn't get quite the insight into Kauru's character I had hoped for I was very pleased with the way the episode ended up.

13 solid eps so far. The show is getting better and better. Speculations on the pairings: Menori & Howard, Luna & Kaoru, Sharla & Bell, Chako & Shingo.

For anyone who still feels that something is wrong with this show running 52 episodes I would like to point out that Madhouse can be quite masterful with long series as per Card Captor Sakura. Madhouse has been producing top-notch work for quite awhile now; there are some very good titles on this list of Madhouse projects.

edit: here comes a whole page or so of exciting stuff that is supposed to be in the tech support forum, courtesy of xvid... imagine being stuck on a desert island with the outdated codec...

Everytime I try to play the We Suck versions it crashes media player. Is anyone else having this problem? What codec version is it encoded in?

Yup - I reboot into 98 or linux and have no problem at all, but I've actually gotten the BSOD a couple of times in XP with this release.

Great series though - my daughter is just seven, and now reads fast enough to keep up with the subs. We've been enjoying this one together.

I have to say first and foremost that I am very happy that this series is running 52 eps. Given the premise and the characters, they should have no problems constantly coming up with new stories.

Secondly, yes, WTF codec is We Suck using? because it definately sucks. It does not run on my trusty win 2000 box so I have to run it on my xp machine which is free of most of the codec crap i've DLed over the years (just got it last year). Still, it pains me that I can't run certain movies because encoders decide to use some shit format.

I believe we suck is using the newest XviD codec ( the one developed after 8/03 BETA). So you'll have to visit your nearest Koeppi XviD codec dealer to grab the newest codec.

We're using Koepi's Build of XviD, the Beta, not the Release Candidate. As discussed on the blog, the RC1 has issues which we right now don't feel like troubleshooting.

In particular, if you're using an older version of XviD, please upgrade. If you're using ffdshow, you may want to try having XviD perform the decoding instead of libavcodec.

Please check the blog for release information and errata.

I really dislike the Xvid codec. It's the only codec that I have trouble with. Although I don't have any Xvid video problems with this series, but others (ex: AJ's Yumeria) I do. I prefer WMV9's codec, but good old Divx is fine either.

Aaaanyways, back on topic. I find myself liking Kaoru more and more. Even though he's forcibly independent, I still like him because he does his job quietly and efficiently. Maybe it's also because I can identify with Kaoru the most. I sort of wish everyone would get off his back and let him do what he wants to do (for the benefit of surviving of course). And oh here's a new way to kill Howard: Lock him in the shower booth, and shower him with boiling hot water until he dies.

Install FFDShow, when people aren't using packed bitstream.
When they are, just make sure your codec is up to date and play it with that.

Wow!

What can I say, this series just popped out of nowhere, and its very very good. The story line and characters are likable. Howard is a complete asshole and someone has got to sort the guy out, how the rest of the group put up with his lazyness and bitching is beyond me.

Also only yesterday did I found out this series has 52 eps, which means lots of room or story and character developement. Maybe we're get a chance to see Howard stop being a complete twit.

I'd recommand watching this anime to anyone. Is there a manga version of this?
