Well, I decided I’d better get Vandred before it was completely unavailable.Â Unfortunately, Robert was sold out of disk 3 and 4, so I poked around on Ebay until I found a complete collection (Series I & II) for sale at a reasonable price, and snagged it.Â Free shipping, so I sprung for the insurance.Â It actually works out that I get it at about the same price as if I’d bought the individual DVD’s as part of the supersale.Â Of course, I imagine the thinkpack collection omits all the extras, like clean OP and EP.Â Ah well.Â It will mean something besides Dual! and Dokuro-chan to watch with Dr. Heinous on my next trip to Dallas.Â Â Assuming the super-slow mail delievers it in time (doubtful).
According to Steven, it seems to be a concious attempt to duplicate NadesicoÂ (though it lacks an animÃ©-within-an-animÃ©).Â Well, there’s certainly worse targets to imitate, but I feel like such a follower myself.Â Sheesh.Â I don’t know why; I certainly don’t have the least desire to run out and getÂ Highbane Remmy, or Angel Cake. Whatever.
Well, maybe I’ll do a write-up on Code Geass Ep.5 tonight, a.k.a.: “The Melancholy of Green-Haired Louise.”
