    He hasn't said it in at least over 60 episodes, if not more than that.

    Well, if Zidane doesn't bash Naruto I will.

    Actually, I won't, I just don't like it. It's formula is just a little too DBZ-ish, i.e., too Shonen for me. Finally, it does in fact suffer from one of the WORST dubs in the history of anime. Seriously, I'd take Voltron or Speed Racer over this. I'd even take Symphony of the Night over this.

    Bleach suffers from DBZ-itis too, but for some reason I can stomach it more. Lead character gets beat, villain gloats and explains why he's so strong, lead character trains, comes back at dramatic moment and is dominant, etc. Also, both suffer from horrendous filler arcs that totally kill the rhythm of the show.

    I'm stoked for the new Evangelion movies. I'll always love Cowboy Bebop and FLCL. I'm watching Code Geass now and its swell.
    thanks for reading

    No that would be Sailor Moon. *represses bad memories*

    And the Naruto fan girls scares me. *hides under a rock* But it's really popular with the female preteen crowd, I see a lot of manga and shrits with Naruto in the middle school crowd.

    Yeah dude. Saying Naruto has a worse dub than the examples you've given(and a lot of others that you didn't) is just ridiculous and frankly, stupid.

    Bleach has only had one really bad filler arc, but it was only 10 episodes, so that is fine. People may mock the Bountou arc, but frankly, it flowed nicely, and added some more depth to the storyline while not subtracting from it. Ok, they have to keep acknowledging the arc's existence, a little clumsy at times, but otherwise it was a decent filler arc.

    Oh man, where to even start...Well, in case anyone here didn't know, my very Username is an anime or at least comes from an anime (I My Me! Strawbery Eggs). Though I watch Blood+, Bleach, Noein, and Tokko currently on TV, some of the anime I watch I bought on DVD. Sadly, I haven't bought much new anime in a while since the nearby Suncoast and Same Goody closed down and the nearest place (Best Buy) is a bit too far for one who doesn't drive.

    My top five favorite series are

    1. Sailor Moon
    2. Vandread
    3. I My Me! Strawbery Eggs
    4. Haibane Renmei
    5. Slayers

    Well, my two fave anime stores (FYE and Best Buy) are across the hall from each other at one of the local malls... about 10 miles away. However, that's for the really good selection. For a more limited selection, there is a FYE about 1.5 miles from my house. Nice walking distance. And unlike the Crossgates Mall FYE, their prices aren't completely jacked up.

    Also, in regards to the new Evangelion. What did they do to Unit 01!?!?!? I mean, it looked freaky before, but damn, green and purple should never be next to each other like that. suspect.gif

    Sensei/FrozenB: Thanks for the recommendations for Gundam. I'm planning to get my hands on the 0083 series first, then get the Zeta Gundam series.

    I couldn't get into Gundam Seed from the 1st couple of episodes awhile ago but since it seems to be worthwhile I'll try to get deeper into it.

    If you're not going to watch the original MS Gundam, at least read a synopsis of the plot. A basic working knowledge of Zeon and the Earth Federation military will aid you a LOT in knowing who people like Amuro and Quattro Bajeena are. It's more important to understanding Zeta than 0083 is. 0083 just basically explains the creation of the Titans and sets the stage for Zeta.

    I didn't see a big difference with 01 - it does look like they highlighted the green a bit in the trailers, but it still looks the way I remember it. Although, that screen-shot does encompass a lot of the green parts.

    I enjoyed Gundam 0083 and I think that's a good series to pick up first, since it's not too long (13 eps). <span class="spoiler">I could do without that whole deal with carrots being the main character's bane though eh.gif .</span> Seed is good, but I wouldn't recommend Seed Destiny. I felt like they were all over the place with a "more of everything" mindset: characters, gundams, ships. <span class="spoiler">Like, one of the characters (blond dude) gets killed off after being introduced within a few episodes and I was completely baffled. I did enjoy Shinn being detained by Athrun, that was the satisfying moment of the series for me.</span>

    Anyways, I'm like a page late on this subject, but I thought I'd throw in my thoughts and reminisce a bit.

    In regards to the Gundam SEED Destiny thing, <span class="spoiler">I think the reason they killed Heine was to show the futility of war. Even good pilots die, and the war just goes on. He also, however briefly it may have been, served as a bit of a mentor to Athrun. </span>

    I must admit I've only seen The Slayers!: The Motion Picture, the one about Mipross Island (sic?). I might give the series a try if I could find them on DVD for new.

    Ah yes Slayers, very excellent series indeed. ^_^ I have all three TV seasons on DVD as well as the first three OAV episodes (VHS) and three movies (Motion Picture, Return and Premium.) The TV series is better than the movies and OAVs in my opinion, especially Next and Try.

    I have all the Software Sculptors sets as well, but my Season 1 set is the first set, with the bad Japanese track. I've been thinking of replacing, especially with them being as cheap as they are ($40 for a whole season? YES), but I don't wanna lose the dub track either.
