More and more I am wishing I had ImagineAsianTV. They seem to have excellent taste.

I know what you mean- they seem to put on just about every show that interests me, at the time when I become interested. Unfortunately, I live in Canada; don't even think they offer it here. Oh well.

Trigun ended on Friday, didn't it? I'm wondering what G4 Canada is going to put on next. There's no news on the webpage yet, hope they won't wait half a month to put up a show summary like last time. Confused

My sentiments exactly. As of now, the channels available to me that carry anime are pretty much stuck in the world of reruns (the FUNi Channel has been switching their lineup around, but do I honestly need to see the Lupin Movie of the Weekend 2-4 times in two days?; [as] has about a week or so of Shin-chan left before that goes into repeats), or their selection leaves much to be desired (AZN: the only thing that has a chance of catching my interest is The World of Narue.)

I just watched Eureka Seven's final episode for the fourth time, cried for the fourth time, and it was gloriously uncut.

I will now choke on my words, as I deserve to.

You know, Galvatron once said, to his greatest ENEMY, "You have earned the respect of Galvatron". I'm totally feeling that line right now for AS... I don't think I'll be angry at AS for a long time now, despite my tendency to get angry at almost everything.

Yes, I had to use Galvatron. I had to meet the TF reference quota before this strange good feeling I'm sporting wears off.

As an unrelated aside, anyone think that Encore Action will ever show the second half of Karas? It's awkward just watching half the thing on their channel. I imagine that it may make people want to go out and buy the second half on DVD or something though.

As a more unrelated aside, I got around to watching the Memories tape I recorded from a couple of weeks ago or so. Magnetic Rose is wonderful. Wonderful. Wish I could say the same about Cannon Fodder, but I refuse.

So pushed it long to accommodate the full 5 minute post-episode commercial break ... thus screwing with the second pass recordings set-up in case they fuss with the schedule on round one *grumble* better go extend Blood+ by 5 minutes ... (PS: hats off to last week's synopsis provider, aside from how blink-and-you-will-miss-it the camp scene turned out, was able to imagine it quite close.)

Yeah, both by your reviews and by CN’s time slot treatment of this stellar little gem just screams, "You will air this if you want us to let you be able to show blockbuster X"

In lighter news, it seems those of the Northern persuasion are about to hit the same point where CN cut-off Zatch Bell ... and with a predilection for following their southern brethren’s lead, Brian must be dreading losing yet another cut-n-paste reviewable show.

I thought Karas was supposed to be a three-parter? Regardless, it shows wisdom far beyond their program director's usual level to keep any further parts of that snore-fest off the cycle, one was bad enough.

Maybe if Tatsunoko Pro ever gets around to drawing it. Razz

I did?

Holy crap I did!

Here's what it would have said:

Blood+
(Cartoon Network)
Sunday March 6th 12:30am - Episode 85 "The Episode About Vampires"

This week on Blood+, Sava uses her magical powers to fight the "Keroptrans" and save the city! I mean country! The courts say I'm not supposed to drink alcohol anymore but I do anyway.

You're silly. It got special mention in the second paragraph of the column, and a listing in the "Repeats" section.

*Giggles*

Actually, I rather liked this week's episode of Blood+, ("Phantom of the School") because it featured a story that was kind of a mixture of "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Phantom of the Opera," which are two personal favorite stories of mine. spoiler[I thought the guy at the end who was the "Phantom" was actually quite amusing looking because he sort of did look like an unusual version of the Phantom from "The Phantom of the Opera" (his mask was kind of funky).]

if you ask me it had one of the worst scenes i've ever seen in an action show since well the first twenty three episodes of Trinity Blood

why do anime shows about vampires always have to extremely bad melodrama
