Here's hoping the rest will be... you know, not terrible.

Why did they pick up Ikki Tousen? Why?

There's lots of good anime that haven't gotten licensed (Nodame Cantabile) and lots of ex-Geneon shows that deserve saving (Haibane Renmei, Lain, Trigun, Last Exile,etc.)

and then they choose what is arguably one of the worst shows in Geneon's catalog. A show that exists only to show girls fighting and losing clothing.

Hopefully we'll see something worthwhile picked up in their further licenses.

After showing that they have the guts to license cult classics like Baccano and Shigurui, my respect for FUNimation has seriously dropped after I got a look at the picture of the two female characters in the encyclopedia.

More like Icky Toosuck, mirite?

Seriously, the first series was so much excrement that I stopped caring after the third volume and never looked at the show again, or its sequels.

The sad thing is I was gullible in thinking it would tide me over until the much better Tenjo Tenge, but oh God, was it terrible.

Seriously, FUNi is doing great things for anime, but this ain't one of them.

Huh, kind of figured that this was one of the Geneon "rescues" that FUNi was going to announce, but wasn't completely sure. I already have the DVDs so it's a pass in my book.

One down, nine more to go.

...except the bad character designs, shoddy animation, horrible attempt at trying to spin a story out of the Three Kingdoms saga WITH GIRLS WITH GIGA-TITS, unlikable cast...

Are you sure? From my understanding the clues were in no particular order.

So can we now conclude that the clues given uses some form of "sound-alikes" in the postcards? I mean with the "itchy toes" and such.

A bit OT, but aren't some of those shows listed on the FUNi site ADV properties, like Robotech and whatnot?

And there are alot of better Fighting Fanservice Girl animes that are out and dubbed so nothing special about these girls in this show

i cant name any on the spot as i try and keep away from that area. But Fanservice anime is everywhere really.
