Leave it to ANN to not mention words like yuri, lesbians and in love with in a spotlight about a yuri anime.


though what i am more concerned is that will it even have it for the AS broadcast?


Uhh...Sakura Trick will never in a million years air on Adult Swim


Actually i meant by some of the content that will probably be edited on Space Dandy.

Well, I watched Nobunaga the Fool. It wasn't awful but it isn't something I'd see myself following every week.

unfortunately some of the plotline for that series is kinda predictable. it might not be successful if it comes to the US.


Also the space dandy dub on AS is definitely too similar to ghost stories. but the humor kinda falls flat. wont be surprised that parts of it are edited.

One slight change should be made to the Inari Kon Kon spotlight, though it probably comes from the distributor or something, so it may not be able to be changed. It says:

Quote:
Sumizome Akemi
VA:Iori Nomizu

A girl in Inari's class. She's beautiful, smart, and strong willed. Inari yearns for her.

Inari does not yearn FOR Sumizome, she yearns to BE LIKE Suzizome. Saying Inari "yearns for her" makes it sound like it is a yuri title... spoiler[Well, there will be some of that, but not with Inari doing the yearning... ]

When a show gives you the measurements of HS girls combined with fighting you know what you're in for. Damn those are some "THICK" girls.

I agree that the humor falls flat, but I don't see how Funi's dub of this is similar to ADV's dub of Ghost Stories. Ghost Stories had more naturally flowing dialogue and was, well, funnier.

I think that Space Dandy is supposed to be a comedy but I haven't laughed yet, either at it or with it. The miscasting of J. Michael Tatum almost had me though: there's just something odd about an overgrown gorilla who dresses kinda like a pimp and commands a starship speaking like a rather effete British dandy.

when it comes to over the top toilet humor jokes. that is how similiar space dandy is to the english dub version of ghost stories.

also from the looks of thing maken ki is gonna be smilar to sekirei .another over the top,ecchi/fanservice/harem series with multiple love triangles. which i like and every other fanservice junkie.


though i have a nasty feeling that minayma girl is gonna be your typical men hating lesbian when it comes to these type of genre series. Alongs as she's not over the top like Shirai (Toaru no Majustu Index, Toaru no Kaguku Railgun) then the series should be ok.

Don't you mean "under the top?" Sorry, I couldn't help myself otherwise I have nothing against you.

Don't you feel weird when one of your family members has the same name as a cartoon character? spoiler[One from Maken-ki in particular.]

Only Silver Spoon's second season is catching my interest and I am enjoying it as I did its previous season.
