Oh, sorry to revive this after so long. But I wanted to put in my two cents. ^_^

Scrapped Princess is another anime that I personally love and think is underrated. It ran for 24 episodes, but it's so good that it feels shorter, because when you get to the last episode, you'll wish there was more. ^__^

It's my favorite dub anime by far. I don't think I've even watched it with subtitles, actually.

Pacifica is voiced by Kari Wahlgren, who I was already a fan of from Tales of Symphonia, but her range is so awesome that I didn't even realize she was doing Pacifica's voice until I saw her name in the credits. ^_^

Don't be sorry about reviving an awesome thread dedicated to an amazing anime

Scrapped Princess recently came to my mind, as I was thinking of animes to rewatch - such an amazing series... Underrated, not very known, deep, simply spectacular.

Anyway, I agree. Scrapped Princess is a great anime. I've got the first three of the novels, too, although I've only had time to read the first one. -_- (Stupid homework...)

In this case that ending was very appropiate. Why do you ask?

I just watched the last episode of Scrapped Princess - seem that the series isn't that popular... can't find much info on it...

The ending is nice and all... but...

Spoiler for Donno if anyone still haven't watch this series...:

Given that this show's over five years old, I don't see the need for spoiler tags :

Pretty much, although the language they're using is more likely to be English than Japanese.

I don't think that the outside world was ever expanded upon, but implication is that they're all dead. If they were still alive, then Mauser would have been far less worried by Pacifica, and we should have seen the interaction of the Outside humans with the Inside humans at the end of the show.

The aliens probably never wanted to exterminate mankind to begin with. It wouldn't be that different from us creating a nature preserve (or a zoo) to save the last few specimens of an animal species. In this case, humanity is a lot more dangerous, and the aliens never wanted to stick around. I'd imagine that if the newly released humans demonstrated that they were no threat, the aliens would leave them alone as well.

No need for spoiler tags? Keep in mind, there are still those out there who haven't seen the show despite its age (there are things out there that are over ten years old that I haven't seen, and could still be spoiled on), and therefore much of this stuff is still considered as spoilers...

but anyways...

Spoiler for still going to put in in a tag:


and on a side note, even though I haven't touched it in ages, the way things went with Shannon, along with the technology stuff, inspired me to write a fic using those as a basis for a little idea that I have yet to complete...

Oh, don't get me wrong, I rather appreciate you taking the effort to put your points inside spoiler tags; it's just that I feel that they're unnecessary for a number of reasons. The first is that the point of spoiler tags is to keep people from being inadvertently spoilers. Since this is the discussion thread about a show that finished airing ages ago, I'd think that it should be expected that people would be discussing all aspects of the show; including the ending and any shocking developments. Also, someone who hasn't watched the show or is beginning to watch the show would be reading this thread from the beginning. Since the earlier posts already discuss the ending, then any reader would encounter the spoilers long before they get here.

For anime threads, use spoiler tags whenever you discuss any details about a different show, or if you're discussing material that hasn't been released in an English format. The exception is if the material is from a pre-existing like the original manga or novel, in which case that material shouldn't be discussed in the anime thread until it's been animated.

This might have been detailed in the original novels - the fourth of 13 volumes has just been released in English by Tokyopop.

Yes, it's an excellent show. One of my favorites.

Do the novels go beyond the anime?

The novels are... different from the anime, in that they do cover bases that the anime never covered. I haven't personally read any of them, so I'm just going on what I've heard

and 4Tran, here's a perfect example of why even ending spoilers about a show that's been over for years probably need to be in tags... (though klare is probably going to start from page one as it is...)

While this thread tends to be fairly late in getting into the ending spoilers, they start at about post 30-40. Anyone reading this thread is going to get spoiled anyways, so why should we go through post after post of spoiler tags?

Cool. It's been about four years since I've actually watched the show.

Basically the Alien tricked Mauser to doom her own kind, stupid girl...
That's sort of my point - that as long as humanity does not pose itself as a threat to the aliens, they are likely to leave humanity alone.

Humanity is no threat till it reaches the space age again. as soon as humanity becomes competition like last time it will be a threat.
