by Kyle Pope, Nov 28th 2001
Cowboy Bebop: Sympathy for the Devil
1) Spike's lower nudity blacked out during surgery sequence. (Unnecessary since nothing was shown)
2) Blood and bullet hole digitally removed from Giraffe's back.
3) Scene of Wen under his father's charred body after the gate explosion shortened.
4) Flash and blood of bullet impact to Wen's head in the warehouse digitally removed.
5) Blood splatter on warehouse floor digitally reduced.
6) Jet's "Oh, shit..." changed to "Oh, crap...".
7) Jet's second "shit" removed.
8) Bullet hole digitally removed from Wen's forehead.
The first of the "lost episodes" makes its appearance. I'm still at a loss to understand why it was deleted in the first place. The edits to this one were minimal and concentrated mainly around the damage bullets do to human flesh. Nothing here that hasn't shown up in edits of other episodes. Actually of the three skipped episodes this one has the highest quotient of things CN is likely to edit.

The acclaimed author of Gogo Monster turns in a highly personal series of vignettes that offer a peek into his life. ― Sunny In my House column on Taiyo Matsumoto's GoGo Monster, I mentioned how the alt-manga master's career has drifted from fantasy to realism, toward work that feels increasingly drawn from life.

Denki-Gai isn't quite as clever or as funny as it wants to be in this second high-priced release...though it really does try. ― The second four episodes of Denki-Gai, one of Ponycan's debut US releases, is somewhat less than the first in terms of content. Where the first box set of this slice-of-weird-life show trod some unusual ground in terms of female-oriented fanservice and over the top kookiness...

This week: arcades, high scores, and the cruel tides of fate! Plus yet more visual novels, even more Guilty Gear, and still more horrors from ancient times! ― On tap this week: old games and how their trends died off. This reminds me that I don't discuss the days of Atari and arcades that often. I was too young to really remember them now, so they're just a dim Nintendo-less prehistory where I might...

This edgy, dark fanservice sequel may have gone a little too far into "edgy and dark", but the series' other qualities might just make up for that. ― At its core, the Freezing franchise is essentially a sci-fi version of Claymore flavored with elements from a handful of other franchises and loaded up with fan service on the level of the most explicit titles of the past few years.
