Look at the GSG broadcast time carefully: (水)27:38. And if you can't figure it out: Wednesday 27:38, or in Western time 3:38AM Thursday. So, it would be more correct to say "In Japan a 'Wednesday' broadcast doesn't necessarily mean it's on Wednesday."

And here's something interesting, they've jumped to chapter 6 of the manga. I wonder if chapter 8 is next.

I only meant that we were back to weekly airings, whatever day they are. I used what the official page says, Wednesday.

I'd love that because ch. 8 is my favorite, but ch. 7 will make spec-ops fans wet their undies so I wouldn't like to miss it either. From the preview in the official page, I'd say ep. 6 will adapt ch. 7, doesn't sound like ch. 8 at all. But I use Babelfish, so I might be completely off

Why would they have skipped ch. 4-5? Too strong subject? And I wonder if the American manga release is completely uncensored/unedited, does it come with an age rating?

Cool, I never thought of that. I thought that ~27:38 was the total duration from start to finish, including commercial break in between. 3:38AM is a brutal time slot. Do the station managers really expect people not to fast forward through commercials when watching video they recorded the night before? Or are anime fans in Japan fanatical enough to be awake to watch the broadcast? ... Sorry, off topic.

I'm not sure why either, but lots of anime seems to be shown in the wee hours of the morning - sure beats infomercials at any rate!

I think because they have so much anime shows running at a time they have to squeeze some shows from midnight on.

I think it's just how Japanese TV programming works. It's just weird. If you take animax's programming sheet as an example: http://www.animax.co.jp/cgi-bin/find...gram_table.cgi
You'll see that the first time is 6AM and the last is 2930 (or 530AM the following day).

And if you didn't know, animax is the 24/7 anime channel.

Are there any satellite TV providers in the San Francisco bay area that can get this animax channel?

More interesting layers keep getting added to this show.

Anyone seen the new one yet?

I'm sure most of you know, but http://www.gunslingergirl.com/onair.html is a very helpful guide (if you know some japanese) to know spoilers for the next episode.

I'm a bad girl, I read the spoilers for every thingy... I'm going to go *TRY* translate Episode 6 blurb (BTW: The title is... gelato?!! GELATO? The... huh? The Japanese kanji, EDIT: I moved it to the spoiler section because uh... maybe.)

Gelato, huh. My brother would be happy as hell. Not like he watches these...

By the way, I'm pretty sure that the 27:38~ you see on the site is *NOT* the time. I doubt they'd employ some weird system that goes past the 24hour system. In that case they'd put Thursday instead of Wednesday, wouldn't they?

I'm very sure that's the episode length, because ~ is a kind of approximation thing, and also two eps have different ones (episode 1 is 27:48, episode 2 is 27:28, the rest are 27:38). Also explain why anyone would bother broadcasting at xx:x8. It is much more convenient to put it at a round number, like :40 or :30.


5 is already spoiled, so here's a crappily-translated blurb of 6: (or my attempt to translate SOMETHING) (Sorry if the spoiler tag is very long...)

Spoiler:


Yes, I'm unecessary, but uh... try not to make me responsible for these translations o_o;;;

There are also character descriptions which may spoil a little about the hcaracters.

I'm wondering why there is no episode on Angelica. I think it's because of er... great, spoiler tag again

Maybe they're using metric time

I'll clear this up. The Japanese have a weird TV time scheduling system that starts at 6AM (with 4 timeslots: 朝, 昼, 夜, 深夜 [morning, daytime, nighttime, latenite]). So, what you get is a program schedule that goes up to "29:55", which would be 5:55AM (Animax airs Kogepan at 29:55). Depending on the station and who makes the website, you might see "27:00" or "深夜 3:00" or just "3:00", for example.

Now, on the official GSG website it has "(水)27:38" (ie. in the 深夜 timeslot), take way 24 and you get Thursday 3:38AM. Not satisfied? Then check out the time schedule for GSG on FujiTV's website: http://www.fujitv.co.jp/b_hp/gsgirl/index.html
"2003年11月27日 3:38~4:08 #6 報酬 gelato" (that's a Thursday).

Thanks for clearing that up then... Damn, I wish they had good stuff like that late night here too.

Weird programmers.

Do you realize the titles of the episodes are in Italian?

Ep. 2 foreshadowing...

I've never posted before, so I'm not sure this qualifies as a "spoiler", but to avoid annoying people, i'll put it in spoiler tags... and i didn't see this subject brought up in earlier postings...

I'm sure somewhere along the line the organization will eat its own - it's par for the course in this type of show - kind of like WHR.

I rather expect whole fratellos turning against the organization and the girls will be forced into opposing factions.
