WOW, that would've been SO FUN if the script wasn't so awkwardly literal and the voice actors weren't so stiff =| (well, save the odd exception here and there. Mayone's was pretty good for what she had).

I recognize some names in the credits from other wonderful works like Tales of Phantasia (GBA), Baten Kaitos 1 and Arc Rise Fantasia, so I guess that figures.

I take it there's a sub somewhere in the vast land of the internet. I would listen to the dub but I know I wont enjoy it; from the video, without subs, I scrolled my way through yesturday it looked like a lot of fun.

Wait...is the princess seducing her father?

I also heard a couple of "damns" in this preview. I thought this was supposed to be aimed at kids. At least, that's the impression I got.

Ah, I had never seen any of those names before, so I wasn't sure where they were from, or if they're completely new. I was also a bit confused seeing what was a very Japanese name in the English cast.

I think the big thing about what made this kind of annoying and dull was Chup. He's basically all screaming, all the time, and always the same kind of screaming. He's also yelling for like 80% of this video.

The other thing is that, at least based on this preview, it's VERY dialogue-heavy. Every second seemed to need someone saying something. That would be the fault of the source material though.

Ya don't need subs - it's not that deep.

True... But a language barrier does make things hard to understand even if it is a little basic. It remind me a little of Senyu which is why I want to watch it (with subs Wink )
