I don't know why, but for some reason I've been looking forward to this. I hope I'm not disappointed. But I watch something else at 8pm on Tuesday nights so I might catch the repeat at 11pm later on or at 11:30pm on Friday.

Ever since I switched over to Dish Network about this time last year IFC has rarely failed to disappoint with their anime shows. I've been enjoying their offerings since Witchblade started back in January to now with Gunslinger Girl.

Even though from what I've heard of this series it doesn't look like I'll like it, I'm kinda pumped up for the airing.

Here's the IFC schedule for the different time zones and such.

Thank goodness for DirecTV's remote recording service! I'm out of town all week, but at least I can set my DVR to record without having to be home. I've also been wanting to see this for a while.

Yes, that was about the only issue with Hell Girl tonight. Speed Grapher had the same problem(especially noticable with a recap episode full of untranslated text). I wonder why it didn't have subtitles. Either subtitled everything(even conversations), or nothing?

I really liked Hell Girl, I can never get enough of watching jerks, a**holes and degenerates get what's coming to them. It is rather episodic at first but give it time, there really is a plot and until then just enjoy, its a really beautifully done series.

That's not always the case. Sometimes people get what they don't deserve.

Very true, I just meant in general. Most of the time it's the jerks, but thats part of the fun of the show. Is the a-hole of the week going to bite it, or someone innocent, or no one at all!? Makes it fun to watch =)

I heard this series aired weeks ago on IFC. Maybe they were lying... Sad
