    Same here.

    Well, hopefully the manga versions do in fact give us a little bit more in any event. Which is fine for novels I guess, but for an anime it's all about pace and while many anime's end too quickly others might just go on for too long, so yeah, good call with SAO, but moving on. For me, it's largely about comparing the length/budget of the anime verses the manga, depending on how long they both run is whether or not I feel they'd be able to do an adaptation justice. Dang Dann, you missed out, it's a very somber and bittersweet series but definitely something you've got to watch at least once.... I feel the same way, but I've also seen so many anime versions that just ruin the whole experience for me as well, so that's why I'm cautious nowadays unless the series is really popular and will this generate the viewership to give it the necessary number of episodes. I think so as well, but we could definitely use a few new ones to freshen things up a bit.

    Not is they went in after seeing the promotions, which were very clear about where the series was going, and the ending of episode 1 should have disabused them of that pretty quickly. Uh, white-gray huh? So generally good with some moral-ambiguity/bitter-sweetness involved? About what I should have expected, especially with the Hideazue making an appearance last episode, though in what context is still to be determined. I felt the same way as well, now it's a question of was this all one of those tragic misunderstandings in a war that could have been avoided? I thought so, I actually made an observation of that on the forums about how I thought the disjointed fanservice of the first dance was supposed to represent the turmoil and confusion of Ledo during that tense atmosphere in the restaurant.

    Bah, those are probably just the whiners that complained about too much Zeon and would have been happy if the new enemy were space vampires <_< Oh I agree it's not always for the better, but I certainly won't complain if they do eventually do it to all U.C works set after Unicorn in this particular case Only ever watched the anime series, and it was too short in my view for what they were going for, left me as unsatisfied as I was with Fate/Stay Night, though that was mostly cause I wanted a happy Saber ending. Still didn't Garden a great fighting game either though. Oh I know it'll have it's issues, but I really do believe it'll make a better adaptation then most. Heck I'd be okay with an OVA style release if that's what it takes. Which is why I wish Funimation to Live long and Prosper Oh yeah, I'm definitely not counting on that, which is fine since I think the sub groups did a pretty damn good job for the most part, I'm certainly not going to complain about not needing to shell out for 150 episodes plus OVA's and movies

    Maybe, but now we've got enemies with real faces and personalities to them, likely with tragic back stories, so it's going to hurt no matter who might win at this rate. That'd be bad in my book given how dependent his friend and adopted sister are of him, and if anyone deserved a happy ending after everything they've gone through it's Eren. Eh, I might have been okay with it if it wasn't for those stupid grins on the Titan's faces mocking them at every turn, that type of taunting makes me want to rip the veil of secrecy behind them that much more. but like I said I'm looking forward to hearing the full story about the Titans from the horses mouth in this case. Not surprising, so putting Seed Destiny back in the grave.... I'll get to commenting about that in my fourth post then.

    Hey, least we'll have final episode of Unicorn to go with it <_< That's exaclty what I think, and much as the action can be good I just find some of the mecha designs really awkward here as well. Yeah, but it'ls a nice, seamless blend used to supplement the hand drawn art as is the case with Unicorn, there's no overuse for beyond what it's supposed to do like in illustrating the NT-D system. Gah, that'd be pretty dang sad and such a waste too, nobody will care about them after that and ask what the point of the OVA was, at least give them their own story and ending <_<

    Yeah well, good points or not I just got really tired of it after that. And thus a tragic Shakespearean ending for him unfortunately Which is why I said you needed to watch Roughnecks, remind you what the heart of the story is and scrub your mind of all that other junk. Alright, will get back to you on Prime in later posts.

    Gah, don't remind me... well, hopefully they managed to get one animated movie deal or something at the very least if the episodes aren't enough <_< Bah, don't jinx us!! Well, until the series actually starts I suppose we'll put that aside for now.

    I blame Disney-Pixar for this, digital animation while having great flexibility will never look as good as hand-drawn animation to me. Yeah, at least we still have Japan in that regard Strangely I think we're heading in the exact opposite in this day and age with the need to specialize, almost wish we had an apprenticeship program in the U.S like in other countries now.

    I guess we'll have to wait until after the conflict though and see how well he does before we can think about that

    I've seen it as well, but I honestly hope for his sake he can balance it to where everyone can benefit (besides Rudolph). I didn't really think they looked all that much younger, but in any event those two will prove to be a big help given the current situation. Holback's commander does seem competent and effective, but I have to wonder if his confidence might just prove to be his downfall once he faces Bernd with his Calvary. Me neither, ah well, when we get a proper name for the thing we can look it up later should the details from the manga on the gun prove a insufficient. Yeah, according to one person's comments/ translation on a forum thread in Gunka's mangafox page. True, but at least he doesn't have anything to distract him from his work now

    Too bad said sympathetic officer isn't here right now to help him Me neither, but it's put Bernd in quite a predicament seeing as how he and the Baselland cohort look to be the only intact force standing against Holback at this point. Won't that be fun? Oh, undoubtedly, I suppose they thought those rocks would have given their army proper cover, but it looks like they failed to properly see the advantage those angled guns on Holback's ships gives them. I'd get a better sense of whether he'd be in any danger if his star rose too high though depending on how that conversation he had with the Army Chief went on that one page.

    Yeah, all he can do is all he can do at this point, try to prove his worth and the worth of Baselland and get the higher ups in Weiben like the Army Chief to see the benefits of mutual cooperation. I think you're slightly off Dann, nobody really cares about Baselland the people at this point, it's strictly about the territory they occupy and the strategic position it offers that draws the other nations at this point. Hopefully this campaign will do some good in adding to Ryner's fame... though it also might have the exact opposite effect and make people think he's a militant dog under Weiben's control, only time will tell.... You have a point, I think it's all about results at this point and proving the worth of Ryner's cause to both his people and the Army Chief. Exactly, though I hope they don't do another focus chapter on one character only, it feels a little forced. Mainly the author should just let it all happen as events come and see how the characters adapt to it, Helmut learning to fight like an infantryman in those few instances for example.

    Hit the word limit, so I had to break up my first post again. Hopefully I'll have the next bit up soon.

    Yeah, after Green Lantern I'm not so confident, plus Nolan says he'd never direct something like that so... best I think they stay away for it, or maybe a more limited "World's Finest" movie where only Batman and Superman team up together, maybe Nolan will reconsider then. It's also dang irritating at the same time though... ah well, no use complaining with the movie about a month away so we'll put that aside anyway.

    Yeah, the Black Flag release felt like way too much, hopefully Watch Dog helps them break out of that rut. Heh, you should look at Square Enix, I'm just praying the rumors about Final Fantasy versus 13 coming out for PS4 are true and we can FINALLY get the game the fans have all been screaming for and put the abomination of FFXIII-2 behind us. Good good, the Last of Us, Metro Last Light, and Castlevania Lords of Shadow are the only things I'm really looking forward to on the current consoles anyway, which makes it perfect for new releases in the next gen to come out for me. As to sequels, I do agree, which is why other then Watch Dogs I'm curious to see how Infamous: Second Son turns out as well of the known titles so far.

    It's cool, I've been a bit busy myself lately

    Meh, didn't really watch, but I've seen a manga version of the series that did have a similar look as I said, but once again I really just preferred the other and I'm happy with sticking with that manga version myself when it comes to Mayouu, moving on though. I thought so, and I really hope they don't because as I said SAO ending it there just made the most sense, and from what I've seen the novels after the second make very little. Yeah, once again a good argument for me to only wait on stuff like this until I hear what the endings were like, if they don't look like the have sufficient episodes to do the story justice like FMA: Brotherhood I really just can't get into it and why I prefer originals, or at least original adaptations of the source material, like say Casshern Sins. People have to know how to branch out and do something different, not just wait on manga artists or novelist to pad the field then cash in before the products even finished...

    It's got such great novelty to it though, I liked RandomC's reviews and how they point outs its a different take from what we're used to where civilians are thrust into war, whereas in this case a soldier is thrust into relative peace. I heard about that, so that leaves me just a bit optimistic... at the same time I'm still leary of how much I can believe a sadist like Uro, and also that uncertainty about where this will all end up that has me worried. I see two possibilities for an ending if they want to shake things up. The Alliance manages to escape the Hideazu and find refuge back on Earth... or the Hideazu finds all of them and wipes out all life... I really hope it's the former if they go for some kind of dramatic ending.

    I refuse to acknowledge any of the post-Zeon war works Dann, and by and large I think Sunrise is too. So if they really want they can hand wave it off as non-canon and reboot the whole series without it, just like how they rebooted with the Origin manga/anime series. <_< That's what I thought last time with episode 5 though going into 6.... again not that I didn't like it myself, but I see the point of balancing out some of the action just a bit more in the finale so that everyone in the audience comes away satisfied, but yes I am hopeful we'll get a good amount in this last chapter as well. Huh, never new what made Garden of Sinners so popular myself, I thought it was just alright, certainly I think BlazBlue would make a MUCH better anime then Garden did as a fighting game. Bah, they probably didn't get that lesson at all unfortunately, still we can only hope someone with a bit of sanity in the English adaptation comes through. Enough about that though, it either happens or it doesn't and we stick with pirates in that case like we do with Legend of Galactic Heroes

    Whatever the case may be I don't think I'll take any chances, I've read a few manga chapters of it recently though just to see how things were progressing, and it still leaves me leery that it's going to be depressing given all the betrayals that seem to be happening (though we finally might make sense of this nonsense about the Titans in the first place after the latest chapter...) Only watched the original Seed myself, it wasn't great but it wasn't nearly as bad as to what they did to it in Destiny which I stayed clear away from, so I'm okay in terms of art in that case. Sounds good, and like I said take your time to enjoy them. By the time you catch up you'll hopefully have the rest of Season 3 of Game of Thrones and a finished Prime by the time you're fully caught up.

    This July according to myanimelist. And I like them too (though once again I could have done without the overuse of digital animation to make the knightmares this time around) but I honestly don't know with as to whether they'll make it in the end, Code Geass always has me wondering if we'll get a tragedy or bittersweet but at least good ending.... >_>

    Feel free to do so, the cliffhanger aside I rather liked those last four episodes after Daemon myself. I did too, though I wasn't really satsified with the conclusion given the sequel to Beast Wars and everything... plus I really liked Dinobot and was sad he didn't make it Oh, that's pretty good, and did I tell you or what that this was definitely the best incarnation of the Starship Trooper franchise? Let me know what you think about the story and characters when you get a bit further. Oh that's not good, you need to go back and finish the opener then, it's pretty important in terms of setup. Animeflavor should have it all available last I checked.

    Yeah, and it's only 13 episodes last I checked. Here's hoping the creators didn't get screwed with being able to give a proper ending in such limited time I was thinking the exact same thing... uggh the new season can't get here fast enough, I want me some old Zuko already!

    I'm hoping it's starting to get taken a bit more seriously these days but you never know. *Sigh* what I'm really worried about though is that people might take this a sign to replace hand drawn animation entirely with digital instead. I almost feel sympathetic with that one Baselland citizen worrying about the replacement of the age of the craftsman for the machine process in that respect. Given what we can guess from Volume 4 that does indeed appear to be the case.

    Going by that preview shot for volume 5 I'm think we're going to see a lot of issues revolving around calvary and how to counter it (good old square formation ). Which can be useful in and of itself when you combine it with artillery positioning and the like. One problem with all of that is this is all significantly above his pay grade and rank to influence, he's got quite a few limitations in that regard

    Add into the mix is his own conflicted loyalties, and how far he's willing to bend the fact that at the end of the day he's there for HIS country's best interests, not necessarily theirs. Yeah, they had one flashback scene of the coup, so they must be academy survivors and friends of Bernd from the looks of it. I think they've been attached to Bernd's unit to give him some experience officers given how he only has six students from the academy with him so far. Interestingly I think they're possibly supposed to be in charge of that unit of Baselland regulars which might be why Bernd selected them, despite being so much younger, though being from the Academy may give them the proper rank above simple enlisted men. Said leader seems to also favor Calvary quite a bit, so it'll be a good chance to test Bernd's theories on how outdated Calvary truly is. Yeah, never seen that design before, could be a modified Gatling gun or something, but we'll just have to wait on the translation for more details. Well, based on what I saw I think Bernd was supposed to raid that place in the first place, but I think he got a bit tempted to sample the wares. Luckily for him it looks like following orders got him and all Weiben soldiers banned from brothels from now on, so no need to worry about him diverting himself from his job (or a potential romance) from now on :P

    Oh undoubtedly, the guy needs a break somewhere, am I right? But I think volume 4 just goes to emphasize my own point, because based on reactions alone I can tell that the commanding general from Weiben seemed to dismiss a lot of what Bernd said. I think based on the preparations from the village Bernd wanted to fight Holback further inland, rather then trying to ambush them on the coast near their ships, or something like that, and we can see the result obviously. I think all that depends once again on how he rises, if he becomes indispensable then they'll have no choice but to acknowledge him in this case.

    Yeah, or it could just entrench that whole Weiben against the world mindset the Army Chief seems to have going on. Just have to see if this whole thing can pay off for Bernd, which I hope it does, he has so many problems besides having members of his own side suspicious of him... I think so, unfortunately that may or may not come about by Ezreich and Weiben turning their country into a battlefield, hopefully Ryner and others of the Baselland elite from the Academy and other places can avert the need for that, even if the people themselves are ungrateful for it. Ryner's coup will likely have to happen sooner rather then later in order to pull that off though... I think so too, well hopefully Bernd can find the right incentives for both in order to get the Army Chief to let up just a little. Well I'm hoping that doesn't become an issue now that we're in the main crux of a conflict, and yes it would probably be better in a extra chapter from now on. I thought it was rather interesting, the blond artillery guy mght have been trying to feign an illness or something and Bernd gave him the option. But it's a good perspective to have, a lot of people would normally be scared about being called up to war. It might have been a bit much to make a whole chapter about it, but I appreciate how every character is bringing a different perspective and background here, from the industrial mogul's son, to the noble-born aristocratic girl, to the low-educated grunt trying to make his way in the world, and now full circle we've got just your average, middle-class Joe with a normal life thrust into an extraordinary situation and how he reacts to it.

    Okay, so moving on from that topic....

    I do try, but sometimes it's just about whether it feels 'right' to me despite wheter the art adaptation has merit, like mayouu from last season where I really like one particular manga version but the anime chose to use another versions art style instead. I'm liking it too but from what I've read in terms of summaries it feels like the novels are TOO long versus where as SOA's anime version ended it at just the right point. That's disappointing to hear, and probably why I've delayed on Accel World given the reported jumps in its story and how its novels are also continuing.

    This is why I'm more comfortable with anime original series despite how gorgeous adaptations can look, you'll at least be able to plan accordingly in terms of story. Speaking of, I'm caught up with Suisei now and I got to say I'm loving the introspective, easygoing nature of it all, it takes itself more seriously then I had hoped but is also incredibly relaxing. Hopefully this will be the exception to Uro's other works or the director reigned him in because I don't think I could take a grimdark twist right now <_<

    Generally, yeah, it's always been one of those running themes in both real and the U.C's history. I really hope so, Amuro wasn't perfect by any stretch but I got really tired of him having to save the Federation from their own screwups, about time the sane individuals not from Zeon said enough is enough. Yeah, hopefully it will be able to sate those who are a bit impatient with the lack of decisive action in the last two episodes. True that, though noe that you mention aniplex I'm reminded that gundam collectors aren't the most fiscally responsible people going by the model's so that may be too tempting to pass up for them, so here's hoping on funimations part....

    I've heard about it... and I think it'll be awhile before I'm up for something like that, at least until someone gives the all clear that it ends alright.... Speaking of giant monsters I really nee to watch Heroic Age... oh and finaly catch up on Last Exile.. so many series I keep putting off.....

    Yeah, you're missing two or three more episodes after the Daemon Arc there Dann. I think has the entire cartoon list from veoh available if you want to check it out. Surprising most of those old serires do have dvd releases, which just proves they made a mistake canceling them in the first place. Remember to go from top to bottom except for thye last two videos, basically star with Pluto, then Hydora, Tophet, Tesca, Zephyr, Klendathu, and then Homefront. Let me know what you're first impression is of the series, I'm still dumbfounded they did so well with 90's digital animation technology. Alright then, we'll shelve the Prime discussion until you're at least done with the first season.

    Ah, defintely cannot wait for it to get here, especially with YJ gone and this being Prime's final season well, at least according to his grandson he's got the quotes and sayings down so here's hoping. Bah, let's just put off that speculation until the next book comes oout for now, no use worrying about it with so little to go on.

    Which is why I'm very optimistic that this movie will be the one to resstablish the Superman franchise in theathers finally. Huh, did not know that about Zod and the Heat Ray... ah well, we'll table this topic until it finally premiers in theathers then, too many uncertainties to continue on this point.

    I know, it might finally be Ubisoft's answer to those demanding a modern Assassin's Creed finally. That sounds pretty good, though I do remember how a lot of things get taken out of Alpha premiers, but hopefully it's far enough along that the demo verson gives us a good enough idea of what to expect when it comes out. At this point, while I'm hopefully I just need to see more developers come out with releases that really help showcase what the new hardware can do before I come one way or the other, best hold off until then I think, maybe when the price becomes a bit more reasonable as you said.

    Cartoony moments are one of those reasons we turn to animated series after all, the ability to do some abstract thing outside of real life. Well, given the primarily military nature of this and how unfamiliar he still is with modern warfare he'll hopefully leave it to Bernd to handle this time around.

    No doubt, we still haven't seen all the aspects of ground warfare, advanced use of artillery for example. Yeah, most I could see in that respect would by the use of hot air balloons for observation purposes. No doubt, but I'm expecting quite a bit of contention between the advocates of the two methods, which in the microcosm would be between Bernd and the Army Chief. Indeed it will be, which likely means Bernd's going to have to come up with some smashing victories for his part, no pressure on him obviously

    Absolutely, this is with out a doubt the biggest undertaking Bernd's probably ever made up to this point given both the tactical worries and all the political implications involved. I don't really doubt that, but hopefully any setback will be manageable, I mean there's so many other problems on the horizon for him to deal with as is <_< Well on that note, I'd best start reading them We're on the 4th volume now, which is the latest release and chapter 16 was the first chapter. About 4 chapters a volume. I'll be honest Dann, I kind of cheated and downloaded the 4th volume RAW by googling Gunka no Baltzar raw and getting it from rawscans. I'd recommend you try it as well, since actual combat doesn't happen until the last chapter of the volume, mostly just setup and introducing new characters from both Weiben and Holback. For the most part it looks like we were right on the money though. Let me know what you think if you do check out the RAW. That being said I cannot wait for Volume 5 to hopefully get here by the latter part of the year so we can see how the conflict plays out.

    Only a few, and one, the Colonel who gave him his assignment and sticks up for him seems like his direct mentor. Remember that Bernd only just got promoted to being a Major, and most of his time has been spent in Baselland or with the Command Staff, not the field commanders of Weiben. I think in terms of public relations sure, the Colonel who defended him to Ryner during the shooting trial basically said as much about their training in order to better develop the armies relationship with its citizens, but I do imagine Bernd probably far exceeds that involvement given how he's still rather low ranked. For the most part I think it's Colonel and above where you kind of expect the level of involvement Bernd already finds himself in.

    Of that I have no doubt. Well hopefully the he might be more amicable if he can see the positive fruits a more moderate method can bring, I mean Ryner wasn't exactly the easiest person to deal with a few chapters ago and look how far he's come! Eh, I'd say otherwise since the populace seems rather fat and happy and content, they look like the kind of public that ave been bought off and sealed in their own little world who don't really know any better. That in turn ties in with Helmut, because at this point it looks like we need to convince people at the top of Baselland society on the necessity to bring in change, as was the case with Strunz Industries, and likely further down the road all the academy students as well. Honestly, whether or not they might be able to really work with the Army Chief will probably boil down to just how much of it's personal ambition on the his part and how much of it is just his devotion and what he see's is in the best interest of his country. I know, that's exactly what I said on the boards when chapter 16 came out, now that we're in a really serious arc I'm hopeful the other characters will have an even greater opportunity to shine, like with the Kid-President and the Railway company.

    Eh, I always just gave Lelouch credit for being more in control then most people think. o you're right, he hasn't had any anime roles though I was impressed with his change from the Vergil voice to the role he played in DMC 4. Meh, you could say that for a lot of VA's if they don't find the right part, which is why I'm so impressed with JYB and his role as Renton, and why he definitely deserved it over Yuri is that's the case. But setting that aside...

    True, but it still leaves me dissatisfied, ah well o use crying over it. So moving on, I do agree with you on that but on the occasions where it does happen there's too much of a disconnect to what I'm used too for me to comfortably watch. As to Accel, I do have some hope in that regard though I was hoping to be a bit further along in the manga before I watched it so for the time being I've preoccupied myself with catching up on Sword Art Online which I think has been pretty decent so far. That it does, but once again I think I'll hold off until either Dansi's manga version or anime is a bit further along before getting into it myself, but reviews so far of the anime version have been good in any event. Meh, let me know when it finishes and what you thought and I'll get back to it. Well, like I said it's only a thought, perhaps you and Mineva are more right on the matter. I'm all for Unity Dann, but not simply unity for its own sake, and going by the last 16 years we really do need a new model of governance for the U.C universe, which both Banagher and Mineva seem to realize and why they want the box. I personally thought it added a lot to make it about Loni, make the whole thing less clear cut then it was in the novel, especially that last bit where she canceled out Shambloo's blast with her bits, saving Banagher though allowing her to die in the process. Hey, rivalry's like those only makes things more exciting and me pumped up to see their clash in episode 7 Oh definitely, hopefully Funimation might be able to salvage something from that mess though... No doubt, guess we'll have to make do with pirating once again in this case

    Really? It ended with the cast being trapped in the Principle Office with Trojan Horse Megabyte and his zombie sprite's saying "Let the Hunt Begin". Eh, if it doesn't happen then I'm fine, I've moved on, it's mostly my lamentation of some really good series cut down before their prime is all. Bah, I definitely need to desensatize you of that garbage. Here's a playlist which has all the campaigns across several different users, just go through the order from top to bottom, except for the last two videos on the last titled Klendathu 11/10 and 12/10, watch those before you get into the Homefront campaign. Kay, let me know if they have any interesting extras. How far along are you with Prime btw? True that, but enough about Adventure time...

    Hopefully, looks like they've got enough individual stuff to deal with and develop their characters more. Will have to wait and see then. Phooey on the longer wait then... Dang straight, he'd be our new Iroh in that respect Well, here's hoping she gets some stability once the whole Search is said and done anyway.

    Can't complain too much since he's doing Toonami free I guess... well, moving on.

    You darn right it is, I never liked versions where he ended up being some kind of celebrity, Superman should always be above those types of concerns, like in a similar but different way to Batman. I think it's confirmed, not sure, but it does make sense in the context of Jor-El's line in the trailer about a child being something greater then what society intended. But also ingenious, since it would FINALLY give Superman a good excuse for beating Zod and his cronies despite being fellow Kryptonians who theoretically should be just as powerful individually. Not sure, going by the punching scene at the end of trailer 3 I imagine Zod gets at least Clark's resilience, but most of the combat scenes has them in some kinds of suits when facing off against Clark. Hope for the best I guess then.

    Only seen releases for Playstation 4, but my most anticipated title of what the new engines can do is definitely Watch Dogs. Still waiting for the PS3's title The Last of Us before I completely move on to the next gen though.

    True, but like I said I wouldn't mind if the author threw it in there as a tease to mix things up a bit to break out Bernard out of the douldrom of his work sometimes. What I like about the series is despite being very well grounded it doesn't shy from some of those classic and exaggerated cartoon themes as well, the sweatdrops and expressions on Bernard's face are a great way to liven an otherwise bleak situation he may face Well, if Ryner can avoid making any more missteps like the last one he'll have his chance to take a big step in that direction depending on how he and the students perform in this campaign and demonstrate that they aren't to be looked down upon.

    At the same time it'll be a good way to demonstrate to viewers like us some of those same techniques and technologies we haven't quite seen yet, especially now that they're explore the naval avenue of warfare as well. True, but we're going to have to see a lot more of it if they ever hope to reap the benefits instead. Oh, I'm expecting it's going to be quite the shellacking at the outset given the initiative and maneuvering advantage Holback's ships offer them versus the fixed positions of coastal fortifications. Well, at least it'll offer Bernard a chance to demonstrate the greater effectiveness of his political model and methods I suppose, so there's some hope Weiben will take a more prudent course in time.

    He seems to panic most of the time I think, but yeah he's managed to scrap by okay on a number of occasion. I certainly hope that bag of luck he seems to be carrying around with him doesn't turn up empty on this one, there are so many disasters that could happen, both for him personally and the Weiben and Baselland at this point. Admittedly I don't have that much interest in learning some of of the aspects they bring up since I don't eat much German cuisine, but it makes for some novel reading while we wait for the next chapter, which could be a ways away given the EG's previous release record and how slow new volumes seem to come out from Japan (I think it's two a year so far).

    I imagine it'll probably be him mostly reacting then anything else, if he gets through this I imagine Bernard will be focusing more on how to consolidate this into an advantage, or at least avert catastrophe anyway. Hey, he needs all he can get the way things are heating up now. Well, I'm just mainly going off of how involved he is in terms of politics and diplomacy on top of his military duties despite the fact that the military is usually supposed to stay out of civilian government matters, at least unless they're generals or something anyway.

    You know, I'd actually agree with the Chief more if he wasn't so heavy handed and ambitious, Weiben's disciplined meritocracy and equatable relationship across all aspects of their society appeals a lot more then this consolidated power amongst a group of stuffy nobles, Helmut whose one of the rare examples of what the nobility should be aside. Wouldn't surprise me, he seems keen to get Bernard even further involved despite his concerns about his impressive abilities, so it makes sense in that light. True, true, though I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how the students respective character and relationships grow as well, this will definitely be an interesting experience for all of them I imagine.

    Hmm, well we'll put that aside for the time being until we're both fully caught up then. Eh, I get what you're saying, he captured the crazy much better though Jun did improve over the course of the series, but I always chalked it up to Lelouch being more in control of himself which I thought Jun did a better job at portraying. I think I would have preferred Daniel Southworth based on his Vergil role in Devil May Cry to be honest. Meh, he suits the roles he plays in terms of the chivalrousness hero for the most part, and at the very least I like that he puts emotion into it, lacking said stiffness of Johnny.

    Well, I wish they'd spent more time wrapping up the story of Darker then Black instead, the OVA's helped but I'm still a bit unsatisfied, though I'll put that aside for the time being. Duly noted then. I've liked Accel's manga version for the most part, and the one difference between this anime adaptation and some others I passed on was that the art was pretty smooth in relation to the manga as well. Dansi is an interesting mix of a cute romance while involving psychological horror of famous serial killer's weapons possessing people to kill as they duke it out between one another over the protagonists love interest, who incidentally has enormous hair. I definitely recommend it if you aren't too squeamish. Eh,I may not be looking for tragedies Dann but I also would like series that take themselves a little more seriously as well at the moment. Well, we'll just have to see come next year I guess. True, true, and all three have very interesting and differing motivations between their respective causes. My guess is that he expects the Federation would be too economically crippled to oppose it and disintegrate on its own, but your point also mirrors Mineva's concern along with it forcing greater division between earth and spacenoids. Oh yes definitely, great character development all around for this episode. Eh, I was okay with it except that it was just a bit too short so that they could move most of the action to Torrington though I got the symbolism involved. At the very least I was glad they jettisoned Loni's crazy Islamic father, that was just really weird, and made Banagher more consistent and the story more controversial by having Riddhe take the shot instead.

    I know, just one of those far off dreams I have, along with a Reboot continuation and someone finally finishing Roughneck: Starship Troopers Chronicles which have been the only GOOD adaptation of that franchise in my book. You ever seen that series btw, I think all of its available on youtube which I post a link to if you're interested. True, true, I'm really grateful to Steve for donating his time on that one. Oh definitely, unlike other shows I appreciate the creators of Adventure Time actually paying attention to things like character growth.

    Agreed, and like I said understandable, hopefully the relationship stabilizes a bit more in the next season. I'd like that as well, maybe and a Thunder technique to counter Firebenders' lightening Yeah, I knew about most of that. Huh, well I imagine the latest they could do it would be this fall, so hopefully we won't be standing pat for too long. Dang straight they better show old Zuko at this point, you can't just keep him alive and not have him show up Gah, it makes my brain hurt, too little information at this point, just going to have to wait for the next issue before we can make any real concrete guesses. Meh, I can take her or leave her at this point. I know her father's influence did a lot to mess her up, but she was pretty dang messed up since she was a kid, and that drove the biggest wedge between her and Ursa in my mind.

    Like I said, it's pretty iconic. Let me know when you get to it. I KNOW, I was blown away by how well he modified his voice to suit the character this time around. True, true, you'd think by now he'd be able to turn down those low key roles given how famous he is

    It'll be nice to see, especially in contrast to the role he'll later play once he don's the cape. Exactly, it blew my mind actually, in considering how often I just chalked Clark up as a super powered human being and how easily lost his alien heritage and all its implications sometimes gets. According to the descriptions I've gotten Kryptoninans are breed and altered for their specific roles in society, while Clark was birthed without any modifications at all. Mayhaps this could give him a good excuse to be more powerful then his fellow Kryptonians when he faces Zod and his crew? Yeah, that sent chills down my spines as to all the implications that single word brings. Hey, I guess I shouldn't complain being the sci-fi fan that I am, now I just gotta find time to watch all of them
