I just finished Gundam Origins1-5 and can't wait for 6. It's the back story I've always wanted. My only issue was with Dozle Zabi, who I refer to as General Bathos. The whole series has a generally consistent tone EXCEPT for when he is in the scene. Otherwise, the series does a good job developing sympathy for the colony separatists, but slowly reveals the horrors of corruption at the higher levels that lead to me still rooting for the federation.

Does it just re-animate the original series/movie trilogy?

No, it is about what happens prior to the original series/movie trilogy. It is a prequel.

Already pre-ordered episode 6. Found the series to be very enjoyable.

As to what I watched recently... Watched a Cream Lemon episode called "Dark" the other day. A bit graphic sex scenes I suppose, but otherwise an interesting horror themed episode. Would've been great with subs, as my Japanese is basic at best.
Also watched a few episodes of Love Hina the past few days. Found it so far to be a silly and enjoyable series.

Wanted to give Dororon Enma-kun a watch too, but so far only come across 7 out of 25 episodes that have English subtitles.

I suppose some of this more obscure stuff has to be watched raw.

Wow, that takes me back. I recently found a Youtube channel called Oldtaku, which is all anime from the 90s. Found some obscure OVAs I remember buying at Suncoast. The channel is a fun trip back.

I had a copy of that that I sold a few years ago.
Very rare disc but it also comes in the box set too.

going through my AnimEigo Bubblegum Crisis LD set again for the first time in several years.

while the soundtrack and visual style are SUPERB in my book, the storytelling has an unfortunate affinity towards descending into Comic Book tropes all too often.

also, you can REALLY tell precisely when Masaki Kajishima took over at AIC;
BGC eps. 5, "MOONLIGHT RAMBLER" and, especially, eps. 6, "RED EYE'S" have "Tenchi Muyo!" written all over them...

There is a change in tone for those episodes but that’s because old OVAs always changed in tone between episodes. Direction and mecha design move to Obari heavy in these eps and that’s mainly it. That and the focus on Priss. Honestly I consider the Tenchi Muyo association to be borderline offensive. I enjoyed TM back in the day but %99 of it is hyper unoriginal harem crap that will litterally never end whereas BGC is a very short classic that died way before it could be watered down into the transparent gruel that TM became.

If Bubblegum Crisis is like Iron Maiden then Tenchi Muyo is like Coldplay.

I recently watched the 4 episode OVA of Vampire Princess Muyo. Really nice show. Love the concept and execution. The dark tone was well set by the animation and music. I just wish it was a little longer.

In the process of watching the Tenchi Muyo OVA series. Currently around episode 9. Fun show. Great early 90s vibe. The music is wonderful. Cute animation. A fun, lighthearted show.

There is also a Vampire Princess Miyu TV series.
It is 25 episodes long, and was released in two nice "Integral" boxsets on LD.

Even when Tenchi came out I instantly compared it to classics such as Maison Ikkoku and Lum and wept at how annoying it was. I hated Tenchi in the '90s and still do.

Ooh. I didn't know that. I'll have to look for it!

I can totally see why someone would. I haven't seen those other ones. I'll look into them.

Tenchi Muyo had very good beginnings. The first half of the first OVA series is very good. Then they make like 1000 more hours of the stuff and it didn’t get more interesting as it went on. It got more and more bland. Like a vanilla wafer...that’s like 300 feet in diameter...and wet.

have a couple VHS vols. of EL HAZARD T.V. (THE WANDERERS) i picked up 20 years ago at a SUNCOAST VIDEO closeout,
and the first LD vol. of the OVA in that great Anime LD CRAIGSLIST lot i came across about a decade back.
got round to watching them all again.

anyway, what's with this series? made with left over budget and staff from TENCHI, or what?

"Ifurita" was adorable in the T.V. series, however, so there was that, but otherwise, a fairly awkward stab at high fantasy
by TENCHI-addled 1990's AIC...

Ha, this post is great. Classic Zeta and I agree too, TM starts running really thin.

Recent watches/watching: Hana Yori Dango, Zeta Gundam, Ranma and City Hunter.

Looking forward to: Lupin the 3rd Part IV BD that I have pre-ordered.
