Great article. I also really enjoy the anime, although I do think that season two is the weakest of the three almost only because it focuses so much on Rock and Revy and leaves Dutch and Benny out of the picture for the majority of the runtime. I'm also a sucker for the English dub; IMO, Ocean's anime dub quality peaked with this series.

I've been reading the manga from where the anime left off and it's pretty impressive. I'm looking forward to learning more of Dutch's backstory. If only it would be released a bit more quickly so I don't have to reread the entire arc each time... Rolling Eyes

And honestly, one of the best lines I've heard, which summarizes this argument, comes from a 1948 film noir, titled An Act of Murder.

Would it have killed ya to tell us what the line was? (not watching the video to find out. I shouldn't have to.)

^^ What's below the video is literally the script for the video with the edit remarks removed such as "insert clip here."

If you refuse to watch the video that's your choice, but the attitude isn't necessary and this is not the first time I've seen you come in with entitlement about our video content.

I would have thought that having a text version is there for people who don't want to watch a video and would prefer to read instead. Making the text version inferior seems kinda half-assed and (mildly) frustrating for people who'd prefer to read. I mean I don't personally care whether the text is even there, I'm just saying I understand where Gina is coming from, kinda.

I'm saying this as someone who watched the video, who would always prefer to watch a video and probably would have ignored this altogether if this was just a simple article thingy because I don't like reading. Good video btw.

I put the text version because people in the forums whine about it being a video when I don't even when the content was created with a video in mind. This is then followed with "why didn't you also transcribe this for me I hate videos." when I do. So my tolerance is pretty low.

You're right. I apologize. I won't do it again.
