    I really wanted Free! to be like Kuroko so that I can find it great like most of Kyoani's shows.

    But I'll just keep my expectations low for now.

    Also. I watched that dog anime.

    Is the dub not already out? I know I've seen a trailer.

    Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi 1/?

    well not a bad start. it does seem like a intresting anime. alot of people were saying the 1st episode was rushed. it did feel like it a bit but still i think this anime may turn out to be a really good mystery anime, but only time will tell

    Eureka Seven- 23/50

    Almost at the halfway point. Show's really starting to get good. Some scenes are so powerful that they're borderline painful to watch.

    I decided to go to extras and watch some of the interviews. The interview with Crispin Freeman was fantastic. He went into detail about some of the underlying themes and obscure literary references (All of which completely slipped my mind until he pointed them out), talks a bit about acting in general and trying to understand his character's mindser and ends by discussing what makes anime appealing as opposed to live action movies or western cartoons.

    Johnny Bosch's interview wasn't as well researched, but it's a hell of a lot more entertaining than the interviews on the K-On DVDs (Because we really care about what the VAs were like when they attended school).

    'When I was auditioning I heard the Japanese and he sounded like a girl, or at least I think he was voiced by a girl, so I tried to make my voice sound like a girl's'
    'I'm similar to Renton in the sense that I sometimes have bad hair days and probably need a hair cut. I also have a giant robot out there in the parking lot'
    'I can't really tell what the themes are are at this point, I guess that killing is bad?'
    'Renton and Eureka really need to put their problems aside and just hook up'

    Kind of a pretty big contrast to mythology and the finer aspects of storytelling and animation

    They did release a trailer. If I'm not mistaken, it comes out later this month. Kind of cool how they're bringing back Stephanie Sheh to voice Eureka. Be even better if they got Johnny Bosch to voice adult Renton.

    Well I started watching Namiuchigiwa no Muromi-san today. It's quite short, but I really like it.
    I'm a bit over halfway Dragonball Z as well. Episode 147. After that I'll watch GT and the movies. I can't believe I missed this as a kid.

    I'm planning on watching Soul Eater after I've finished the entire Dragon Ball series, but I'm not really sure what to watch after that.

    But yeah, I haven't finished that much anime series. Since I do other stuff in my free time as wel and I've only started watching anime a few years ago. But the ones I have fiished or I'm at the most recent episode if they're still ongoing are:

    One Piece
    Dragon Ball
    Mirai Nikki
    Hellsing
    Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt
    Witchblade
    Jigoku Shoujo
    Blue Submarine no. 6
    Digimon
    Digimon adventure
    Higurashi no Naku Koro ni

    I also started Mouretsu Pirates and Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai but didn't have time to continue watching them, then all sorts of other stuff happened and I don't feel motivated to continue them.

    Oooh, sounds good, I should watch it.

    JYB is a funny guy in general, or at least he was when I saw him at Anime North.

    They did release a trailer. If I'm not mistaken, it comes out later this month. Kind of cool how they're bringing back Stephanie Sheh to voice Eureka. Be even better if they got Johnny Bosch to voice adult Renton.
    For me that's not so much "something cool" as it is "they frickin better have". E7 had a generally good dub, not bringing back the original actors would be lame. Still kind of pissed about MGSV but that's unrelated.

    Yay for Youtube! I saw Redial was on Youtube subbed while I was at work today so I spent the next few hours anxiously waiting to get home to watch it. The subs weren't perfect, but they did good. I love Mirai Nikki so much! *skips away in happiness*

    It's Funimation, so I wouldn't count on it. Unlike Sentai, they tend to be rather inconsistent about fidelity to the original cast; for every Roberta's Blood Trail, you get something like the Trigun movie.

    Well they still had JYB. They recast everyone else though...

    Slayers Revolution and Evolution-R were pretty impressive, save for the absence of David Moo as Xellos.

    Card Captor Sakura - 57/70

    Still trudging through. Gonna try to get up to episode 60 by the time I go to bed.

    I remember thinking episode 55, "Sakura in Wonderland", was the most boring episode of the series when I was younger, and it made me start to fall out of Cardcaptors. But I'm at least glad I didn't stop there, because I kinda remember the elevator episode where Li calls out Sakura by her name, and it's just such a memorable and adorable scene. Li/Sakura really is the cutest pairing <3.

    Eureka Seven- 28/50

    This show does a really good job of bringing out all sorts of emotions. Moved my score up to a 9. Loving the new OP with Renton and Eureka re-united

    Haven't seen Badlands Rumble yet, but replacing Wolfwood is criminal. Well, at least JYB is still Vash

    Stephanie Sheh has done some work for Funi before (She was Barkhorn in the godawful Strike Witches dub) so I guess it shouldn't be too surprising that she returned

    Card Captor Sakura - 61/70

    Hauuuu, nine more episodes to go! Looks like I'm actually picking up the pace now that I can see the finish line from here. If I were to guess, I'm anywhere between volumes ten and eleven in the manga at this point. I kinda wish I have those two volumes right now... then I'd be finished with the manga series.

    Anyhoo, gonna keep watching. Planning on watching a couple more before I turn in for the night, and then finish it up tomorrow. Then I'll have to make a decision about what anime to watch next.

    Eureka Seven 30/50

    The character development is fantastic in this show as is the romance between Renton and Eureka. At this rate, I'm probably going to finish it by tonight.

    Eureka Seven is awesome. ^^

    Bakemonogatari 8/15
    The World God Only Knows Season 2 1/12


    So far I'm enjoying Bakemonogatari more for its awesome story and character interaction, but TWGOK is also awesome. ^^

    It gets worse.

    "Sorry to all the fans, I would have loved to play Wolfwood again and dub the Trigun movie, but Funimation dubbed it already without me. They called me and wanted me to fly myself out to Texas from Los Angeles and put myself up in a hotel while they paid me less than the original series paid. I would have lost money on the deal. Then when I asked for more money, they went ahead and replaced me. Pretty cheap, huh? I guess they don't care about the fans.

    NOOOOO. No way. I've been keeping up with the manga. While I have little faith of them doing an original story, adapting the rest of the manga should be no problem. Plus there are some scenes with Kim that need to be animated.

    The fight with TheEND right? One of, if not my favourite moment in that series.

    Eureka Seven- 50/50 (COMPLETE)

    Man... that ending man...

    As for my thoughts on the show, it was a bit overly vague at times but the character relationships and their development coupled with top notch animation, awesome mecha fights and a lot of charm to boot makes it a solid 9/10 which puts it in my all time top 10.

    I also have to give a special mention to the English dub since it was fantastic. It's surprising that someone like Johnny Yong Bosch who usually voices characters with deeper voices can play a teenager voiced by a girl so convincingly. Stephanie Sheh is great as Eureka too as is Crispin Freeman as Holland (No surprise, he's always amazing), Kate Higgins as Talho and Kari Wahlgren as Anemone.

    Kind of sad that AO sucks. A sequel to the show sounds like a great idea on paper given how open ended the conclusion was.

    Well, it's reassuring to know it's not his fault. I assume something similar might have happened with Chris Patton being replaced halfway through the FMAB dub when Greed took over Ling's body.

    Although Sentai are worse when it comes to this sort of thing. With the Angel Beats dub, they replaced the VAs of a bunch of minor characters halfway through the show (Which is only 12 episodes) and replaced half the cast of The World God Only Knows in Season 2. Luckily those dubs are terrible and not nearly as memorable as Trigun so I can just laugh it off. Although apparently they turned down Steve Blum when he made an offer to be in the English dub for Kid's on the Slope (Since he has a history with Watanabe's previous works). That's a pretty terrible thing to do.

    Card Captor Sakura - 66/70

    Two more hours to go. It'll definitely be done sometime this evening, since I have classes here soon and I need to get lunch.

    The romance in Card Captor Sakura is just so innocent, I wish more shows were like that. Hauuu, Shaoran and Sakura are so cute...

    So... which of the two meanings are you talking about ._.? I'm like confused...

    Card Captor Sakura - 68/70

    Hau-au, I'm trying to remember if I did see episode 68 dubbed. It's the only other reason why it is Sakura was in that costume when she transformed the Light and Dark Cards with Shaoran. I'm pretty sure the episode was aired on Kids WB... but my memory's fuzzy.

    Still, I'm almost finished. And I'm actually pretty sad about it. I remember how everyone wanted to be a wizard when they turned eleven, but I wanted to be a Cardcaptor. Ever since I started watching Card Captor Sakura for the first in a long while, I've been getting those feelings back. There's just something really special about being a Cardcaptor, in that you can still be your normal self with magical powers. I mean yeah, it was like that with Harry Potter, but you went to a wizarding school for a number of months. As a Cardcaptor, you stay at home and live a normal life while getting the Cards here and there, and other things. Sure, keeping it a secret would be stressful, but to just live life the same way as before just sounds better.

    I dunno, that's just what I'm feeling about it. It's just the ten-year-old in me speaking her thoughts. Cardcaptors must've really impacted me in a way like how Pokémon did. It impacted me better than Sailor Moon, that's for sure.

    Hau... I wish I didn't have to go to class today so I could continue right now... It's probably for the best so I can watch the last two episodes in a row.
