Subtle changes in subtitles can definitely make a big difference. I wish in general that the original writer/creator could be more involved, at least leaving some tone notes or something. I suppose ideally I'd know Japanese, but I am dumb and old.

He's a dick at times and he clearly has issues with killing still as well.

a study in contrasts. i just finished, back to back, first, "Tamako Market" on Blu-Ray, a modern, Kyoto Animation series,
which means, above average in animation quality by today's standards.

i chased that down with "Jewel BEM Hunter Lime" on DVD, a long forgotten, seemingly-cancelled-after-three-episodes
mid-90's series based on a PC-98/SONY PS1/SEGA SATURN game series.

even with it's old, grungy, imperfect looks, Lime had more verve, life and sheer charisma in it's characters in three odd-ball episodes
than Tamako came even close to managing in it's entire 12 episodes worth of bright, sparkly HD i wanna be K-ON! too! "perfection"

in sum, Lime made me feel like i was fifteen again, discovering strange, awesome Anime for the first time at my local Video Rental store,
whist Tamako made me feel like... i just ate a bowl of FROOT LOOPS.

J.B.H. Lime may hardly be one of the great OVA classics, but it sure did a handy job of acquitting itself by way of illustrating
absolutely everything that is quite fatally wrong with today's utterly disposable, nonentity of an Anime industry.

finally, while i hate to blame it all on the modern Moe stylistic motif, since i actually tend to LIKE Moe, -at least older, foundation Moe-
the smoking gun here does indeed seem firmly within the defendant's grasp, and it ain't giving me much of anything to work with...

Interesting. Even with as popular as it was it’s still a b*****d What If...? trilogy of films I guess.

Finally gave in and bought the Kenshin OVA and Movie BDs while they are still somewhat reasonable. Had to import from Japan so not remotely cheap. I've heard they are incredible though, and I'm stoked to watch them again.

I hate when good shows of the old days only end too soon like Sol Bianca and Debutante Detective Corps. I am sure there are others. I do like Sol Bianca Legacy but damn me I would like to have both realizations completed and released. I will have track to Jewel one of these days. It sounds like something I would enjoy.

finished COBRA; THE ANIMATION. it was swell. gloriously goofy in that 70's Sci-Fi sort of way, totally Coolio.

currently going through the Di Gi Charat T.V. and "Specials"
occasionally cute, even honestly adorable, once or twice, but on the whole, mostly Retarded.

for the most part, only notable because the production and video mastering
ends up making the whole thing somehow look and feel like a product of the 80's. it's Weird...

Oh man, Last week I just watched Space Adventure Cobra on DVD, I do own the limited boxed LD with OST CD and it is super amazing that I don't want to sell it
and is one of the few that I will keep both LD and DVD.
I have the TV series and that was amazing as well. Love Buichi

Sad that the film has never been released in 3D, would have loved to see that, unless there is a VHD in 3D?

one could only hope. VHD is really obscure in the English part of the world and there probably aren't that many Japanese sites left that cover VHD I would assume but you never know.

OK just watched:Love City [TLL 2035]
Ai City or Love City.

And now watching Bobi ni kubittake (1985) [SF058-0078]
This has a feel that reminds me of what someone like forper is missing from the early days of Japanese anime and nostalgia.

Very hard to find and I somehow lucked out getting this 2 years ago on YJ cheap.


Well that was odd, the link on the page to post on the forum didn't work due to the odd dash above the I in Bobi which should really be Bobby as the cover title is Bobby's not Bobî

So I tested the shows I got on the Sentai sale that I had the ADV DVD of now that I have ANYDVD again. Identical. The only difference is they put more episodes on each disc (to save on disc costs I assume) otherwise they could have used the exact same discs (which Funimation has done, multiple times).

Watching: Dark Myth, 1990 anime.
https://www.lddb.com/laserdisc/50664/PILA-1018/%E6%9A%97e%EF%BF%BD%EF%BF%BDc%EF%BF%BD%EF%BF%BDe%EF%BF%BD%EF%BF%BD

Took me a long time to get the LD player running in my construction site of a house but I have a nice small 22 inch TV in the dining room
with a cable running to the LD player and speakers in the living room LOL.

Very odd anime, don't really well considering its an OVA, they sure spent some time and money on this more than others of the time era.

"Battle Doll Angelic Layer" is the very last i have in that stack to go through.

it supposedly ties in to Chobits, another superlative CLAMP work.

it doesn't seem all that great, so far, -five eps. in or so-
but hopefully it will eventually build up to something more significant
than the "POKE'MON-battle-an-episode" formula it has been stuck on from the start...

I remember Angelic Layer being fairly average, but I haven't seen it in many years. I did pick up the BD though, so eventually I will watch it again.

I enjoyed it at the time but it's not really a necessity even as a CLAMP work. Chobits is better.

Recently started re-watching Hokuto no Ken 2, the infamous followup to the original series. I always find it amusing that the english title is "Fist of the North Star" when the main character's martial art is clearly based on the big dipper constellation, but then this sequel series introduces an art based on Polaris, the actual North Star.

Well it's widely considered to be not very good, unless that's changed in recent years.

I just don't really go to anime centric forums enough to know majority held opinions. I just saw the scores for it on IMDB, ANN and MAL. All of which were in the 7-8 range so I figured I would ask about that.

Hokuto means northern something doesn't it? Ken is just "way of" or something?
