I just watched Witchblade with a mix reaction. I love the animation and fight scenes but the story wasn't there for me. Just wondering if it picks up in later episodes. I have only watched the first episode because it was a free download on the Xbox 360. Wondering if I should bother downloading the rest.

Witchblade is awesome. I'm up to the 4th DVD. The first episode doesn't do it justice since they make it seem like it'll be a monster of the week type affair. It's not. It's about the relationship between a mother and daughter, and what one of them will sacrifice just so they can stay together.

Also you should BUY the rest (if you meant downloading from the marketplace, I apologize).

Yeah I meant downloading from the marketplace. You got me interested and it sounds like something I might get into.

I just got the 2nd Gig of Ghost in the Shell SAC and the latest movie. I assume that I watch it following the second season?

But now I'm ready for D/P, excited and terrified. It's going to eat so many hours of my life.

Got a used copy of Naruto Uncut Boxset 5 for $12 at Re-Play. Not bad at all.

The GitS movies and series are unrelated.

If by latest movie, he means Solid State Society, though, that does definitely need to be watched after the second season.

it was probably in there because I'm a flaming homosexual.

SSS is an OVA though, not a movie.

Semantics. But if you'd *really* like to mince words, it aired on Japanese satellite TV before coming out on DVD, so that makes it more of a movie than an OVA. An OVA implies direct-to-video.

Man, I was going hold off on more Rightstuf purchases after my ADV splurging, but all this talk about GiTS (and the fact today is the last day of the sale) is making me want to place an order.

I s'pose.




Unrelated: would any one be interested in buying Bleach volumes 1-9 from me? They're practically brand new.

Has anyone been watching the Persona: Trinity Soul anime? Just wondering... I've watched up to episode 7 and I think it's pretty good so far... Started off rather slow though.

Do anime soundtracks usually get released with the first volume of a series, or after it ends? I'm really hoping a soundtrack for BECK gets released here, with the new dubbed versions of the songs. Any chance of that happening?

I see them a lot with first volumes. I got one with Ergo Proxy, Haruhi, Last Exile and a few others, but I guess it just depends.

Speaking of anime soundtracks, which ones do any of you own? I don't have many, but I have North American released soundtracks for...

Ai Yori Aoshi
Ergo Proxy
Last Exile
Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi
Please Teacher
Samurai Champloo
Samurai Girl: Real Bout High School
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (all the ones that came in the LEs)


I think that is it.

I actually have not read or seen Emma. I've heard it's really good, and the box set is only like $40. I couldn't pass it up.

I pretty much blind buy everything. Thing is I'm not sure it can be called a blind buy when I make sure to read up on a show, and get impressions from multiple people. And I have to say, I have a pretty good track record. I can only think of a couple shows I've purchased that I just plain didn't like.

Likewise for me. A few I have bought due to a US airing (Big O, Original Dirty Pair, Ruroni Kenshin, R.O.D. OVA, Samurai Champloo and others), but a large number I have bought simply by reading previews and liking the premise. During the ADV and Geneon sales over the last year, that is really the only way I could do it since sellouts happened fast.

Others I bought at Bestbuy or Big Lots simply because they were cheap (Galaxy Angel Complete Collection, Green Green, Grenadier, Stratos 4, Overman King Gainer, eX-Driver).

Then there are those I bought by word of mouth on CAG or elsewhere (Tsukikage Ran, Here is Greenwood, Jubei-Chan, Azumanga Daioh.

The only shows I have (that I watched) that I just didn't like were Assemble Insert and Plastic Little. They both just bored the hell out of me.

I'd say the best blind buys I have made are Miami Guns (which is one of the funniest shows I have seen) and Here is Greenwood.

I love 'em too, but it's tough to find quality ones. Of the finalists that I've watched so far, the truly outstanding ones are "Allegretto," by Ileia, and "AMV Technique Beat," by Douggie.

Speaking of AMV's, how do you all feel when there are subtitles showing? I've been wanting to do a Saikano AMV (i've got the perfect song picked out); I just find that the subtitles take away from the lyrics of the song; but i cant find any raws for Saikano. I've got the dvds, maybe now that ive got a nice quad core comp; ill find some decent software to do movie making on.
