First of all, Bamboo, I just want to say that I enjoyed reading the article you did in Anime Insider #17 about the Please, Twins! girls. That article got me interested in renting the series and possibly the prequal, Please, Teacher!

And speaking of girls, I'm looking forward to renting the Mezzo series, and your review of Volume 1 will definitely help me prepare for what I might see. Mezzo looks like it will be another Najica Blitz Tatics, sans the panty shots; plus the main character is HOT!!!!

This is what I'm going to say about Sister Princess:
Cute girls in an anime: Brilliant!
TOO MANY cute girls in an anime: Not Brilliant!

Shows like Sister Princess give Harem anime a bad name.

Go watch Ai Yori Aoshi or Love Hina or Tenchi Muyo!, if you want a good harem show.

Nothing like reading a no-holds-barred Perishable Items section to brighten up my Halloween afternoon.

Bamboo you amaze me with your ability to wield criticism with a finesse that only a seasoned reviewer could pull off.

I liked the Team America reference in the Lady Death review.

*bows down to Bamboo's opening rant*

That's something I've wanted to say many times, but never found the words to do so.

She wrote that? *Looks in A.I. 17 for proof* Hey, she did! That's cool because I also enjoyed that article.

I know someone who may not like your opinion of Sister Princess, but he's British ^__~

Tenchi Muyo is still the king of all harem shows.

I contest your use of the word "prequel". A prequel is a work that is created later than another work, but it's story precedes the earlier work.

I contest your use of the contraction "it's." Now let's get back to discussing things that matter.

I appear to have been defeated by a typo. In any case, it's unfortunate that there were so few good releases this week. I could have sworn that I saw two volumes of Mezzo at Best Buy this weekend though.

What is with this continual lack of screeners for the week? Has it become like when movies are not pre-shown to critics early becuase they are going to be terrible or are anime execs tired of sending you guys free stuff?

Okay, i'm confused.

How does the Lady Death Animation fit into the genre of Anime?

Is it just because it's released by ADV Films, a semi-decent company that releases passable to semi-passable Japanese Anime, B-rated TV Shows and Movies, and a poorly mis-managed Magazine, or is it because it was animated by a buncha Koreans?

They still left in Morty in English dub of Shaman King, but other wise, I was pretty happy with the release execpt it could use a clean opening/closing or something other then trailars of Ultraman. Confused
