Why must the characters feel the need to sing? It's not natural. If my friends started singing random, creepy songs every time we hung out, I'd report them to the authorities for substance abuse. It also greatly breaks up the flow of the series. Every bit of scariness that's built up during the episode is thrown out the window when people start singing in unison.


So I take it you're not interested in Sweeney Todd, then? Wink

The play was pretty dull.

Also, THAT'S Shana? Well that explains why people care about that series. I'm suddenly intrigued myself for reasons I won't get into.

Which series does he like?

Um... not sure.

(Yes I'm kidding!)

Seriously, though, I'm pretty jealous of that collection. Zounds!

I think I get far more enjoyment out of your comments about Suzuka then I would from actually watching it.

Its interesting to see Red Garden Vol 2 get a shelf worthy. Especially after it got a terrible review here. I guess its the kind of thing you either love (minus the singing) or hate. Everything I've hear is either highly positive or very negative.

The man sure loves his Shakugan no Shana. Razz

While I haven't seen the last 5-6 episodes, Zegapain turned out to be a very interesting series over the course of its run, with its sci-fi elements and a plot twist that occurs roughly around the half-way point. It's definitely worth checking out.

I saw Suzuka during its fansub run, and while I did like the series overall, shouting matches with my monitor ended up becoming a weekly occurrence rather. As the story does continue on past the anime, I am supporting the series through the purchasing of the manga, but I honestly don't know if I could endure re-watching Suzuka simply because Suzuka and Yamato are quite possibly one of the (if not THE) worst anime couple(s) in anime today. Not even Honoka (one of the shows few redeeming qualities, though she has her own share of flaws) could get me to watch it again without hesitancy.

I felt the same way about Suzuka. I kept on watching it even though it frustrated me, and at the end I felt disappointed, yet somehow satisfied that I could confidently say that it sucked.

So far I haven't really heard anyone say they appreciated the random outbursts of song in Red Garden. Besides that, I've enjoyed what I've seen so far.

Very nice shelves. I like how the one in the middle is shorter; it kinda makes it feel like a Shana shrine.

It's worth noting that Red Garden seemed influenced by Broadway quite a bit, hence the New York setting and the Wicked billboard ads. The singing does end with episode 8 or 9 (where the girls sing in Claire's apartment).

They rereleased that POS movie?

I only own their original release DVD for colletion purposes. Well, that and I feel everyone should watch it at least once, just because.

The only thing good about that movie was the Master Roshi character.

Best casting EVER.

Only thing that would be better is if there outtakes in the extras menu and it was just Bamboo ranting about the series and cursing at her tv. That would be funny and entertaining. I started watching it myself. Up until I started having flashbacks and thought I was back in high school with that old tires bs school drama. After a serious alcohol binge I swore never to finish that series for fear of my eyes being pecked out by ravenous crows.

On a positive note that's quite a collection there Robert. Minus 1 I have all of those same Ikki Tousen figures myself, and a few not in your collection. It's always weird a bit looking at the weekly collections and noticing if I have the same posters/wall scrolls or figures as others. Always gotta check my room after I see the new collections posted each week to make sure mine weren't somehow stolen by that damn leprechaun that keeps hiding my socks and taking my loose change!

i'm guessing between Galaxy Angel and Ikki Tousen...

surprised that Robert doesn't have the body pillow with character's half naked image on it...

or it's on his bed off in the corner not seen in the pictures....
