Fine Japanese Cartoons

Recommended Posts

A bit hentai, yes, but still a perfectly reasonable question. And thanks about my taste. But as to just picking someone, that would destroy the whole plot, Tenchi is surrounded by six women, all who care about him, and he also cares a great deal for each. To ask him to decide between them would be a difficult proposition. In his own way Tenchi loves each one of them, and for him to choose one would mean for him to hurt the others, and that is something he can not bring himself to do. But I once read a fanfic where tenchi solved that particular dilemma by having five clones of himself made so that noone gets left unloved.

Actually, Tenchi does pick someone, in a movie nonetheless. In "Tenchi Forever", he picked Ryoko. This, has been recognized my the Tenchi Fan community as the "Final Answer". Although Ayeka wants to hang around to make sure nothing happens to Tenchi. I can understand that, after all, Tenchi is part of the royal bloodline, and a common space pirate is trying to budge in on the act.

I was sort of dissapointed though. I SO wanted him to pick Washu. *evil gleam* Hey, can't go wrong with pink hair! ^.^

Actually...

As I've already written a rather lengthy DBZ fanfic, my condemnation of the series has lessened slightly.

Just slightly, mind you. I've grown attached to a few characters, Buruma and Vejita in particular, with some lingering interest in Beeduru/Videl.

Though I'm not touching DBGT with a 10 meter cattle prod.

I haven't seen the movie yet, and didn't know he had made a choice. Thank's for setting me straight Endeavor.

But Tenchi is the heir to the royal throne of Juri right, aren't they allowed to be married to two women at once?

And I agree with you that he should have picked Washu.

Umm...Ashnod, I know many of the DBZ characters by their Japanese names but Beeduru isn't ringing any bells, who is he in the dubbed version?

Beeduru is Videl, the daughter of Mr. Satan/Hercule.

I'm certain it's a play off the same demon name as Debora (SP?), so I tend to prefer the Videl (play off of Devil) version of the name for distinction.

Just read the first "script" for your NGExUtena crossover. Interesting concept indeed. One question is, How ould 2 divergent worlds could cross... I'd have to read more of the scripts before I can answer the question. But, so far, the worlds mesh.

Anomie,

Thank you. I'm glad you liked it.

Endeavor,

SKE isn't about two divergent worlds crossing. I combined both the settings, plots, and the casts into one story. They don't exist independent of the other. It's ONE narrative based upon two narratives.

The article just say's 'next fall or so'. But if it's old new to you, why didn't you let on to the rest of us anime fans smile . It also say's that there will be minimal extras on the DVD frown .

*grins*

If I had my way, and I saw one of those weird things attacking me. I'm pulling an Ash. As in "Army of Darkness", and the "Evil Dead" series. In other words, a Double Barreled remington, right down their gullet.

Sorry. Some of those monsters are quite cheesy. With VERY exploitable weaknesses.

If someone invited me to play in a Sailor Moon RPG session, it'd only last a few sessions. The first 4 would be me actively eliminating all the youma, and the last would be spent trying to explain to the authorities why I'm carrying a sawed-off, shooting innocent people.

Er... I'm WAY off genere aren't I... hehe. :P

Guns = FUN

Hehehe...

I never saw the first two Evil Dead, but I did see Army of Darkness. But if he was stuck in the past, where did he get all that ammo from?

I have the Sailor Moon RPG book myself, but for some reason none of my gaming buddies want to play it with me wink .

I went to the ADV website to see if they had any information on when they would release the uncut episodes, but I guess it's to early for an upcoming release notice. Oh well.

I have the blue book. I didn't even know that there were two editions out. Is there much of a change in the two, or was it just a rereleas?

Sandy Davis

It was meant to be a rhetorical question smile . Thanks anyway.

Actually, they do explain it. Ash, very conveniently, had textbooks on basic chemistry and engineering in the trunk of his car. So, he had instructions on how to make gun powder. Cheezy, utter b.s. but an explanation nonetheless.

Well to keep this new turn in the thread going, how did he make the primer caps or cast the shells?

This is me being a jackass, no one needs to answer, really.

What's FLCL?

And does anyone consider Shadow Raiders an anime? I've found that many online orderforms consider it as such. I don't believe that it is, thought, especially since it's made in Canada.

Shadow Raiders is that UGLY War Planets CGI cartoon Mainframe made some years back.

FLCL: It's pronounced Fooly-Cooly. Its a really CRAZY anime. I want to hear if anyone has seen more than 1 episode before I say I want to plop hard earned greenbacks on it.

What's wrong with War Planets? I happened to think that it was a pretty good cartoon. I only take offence that it's classified as something it's not. Other than that, it's cool. And did you know it still airs on Showtime Beyond laugh .

And sorry, never seen any FLCL so I can't give you a recomendation.

I know Shadow Raiders still shows on Showtime Beyond. I still think it was just a "toy cartoon". Made to sell toys that weren't really all that great. That series is just plain wrong. But, that's my opinion.

Rouroni Kenshin is one of the best. But to collect it will cost you tons. I think it's about 22 dvd's if you buy the american released ones. Not available in a box set either. But the series is definatley one of my favorites.

Heh. No kidding. It took 1 episode to hook me. 1.

It takes more usually.

I guess it's all the people with swords... I don't know... It just has a cool factor I can not explain.

How is Noir? I've been curious about it myself.

Noir is really good. I haven't seen all of it yet, but the first three dvd's worth have been worth my money. (but then I'm partial to amnesiac assassins too, if you haven't noticed)

There are some really good action sequences and the music is very good as well. The story is definatly intriguing.

I'd also recomend Rahxephon for an Evangelionesque story that is just as good if not better if you ask me, or Rune Soldier for a hilarious take on fantasy based animes.
