Picked Up Today

Went by Fry’s to look for a quick animé fix.

FMP:TSR, DVD 3. Already watched, didn’t like it as much as the previous one. It’s hard to watch someone falling apart and that’s what’s happening to Sagara. And Tessa didn’t help, going all schoolgirl angsty and breaking down in front of him. Pity no superior saw it, she should have been relieved of duty.

Ghost Stories, DVD 1.
The few reviews I’ve found of it say that unless you’re a purist, the rewritten dialog in the English version is hilarious. Seeing as ADV has done a bang-up job with prior “tweaks,” it ought to be good.

Outlaw Star: Anime Legends Edition.
They’re just trying to mess with me. Sunrise/Bandai, 26 episodes, 3 DVD’s. And no, it’s not bootleg. I missed a couple of the early episodes a few years ago on CN, including Hilda’s death. Now I can finally watch them.

    The dub for Ghost Stories is the worst I’ve ever been forced to sit through (yes, forced; it’s a long story). Not merely because the dialogue was rewritten, mind, but because the rewritten dialogue sucks. You get the impression that the director’s primary objective was to piss off the purists; producing a good dub was of secondary importance.

    Ah, Outlaw Star. I enjoyed that one. I’ve got most of the DVDs, perhaps the latter two thirds of the series. I never have bought the first bits… The Stainless Steel Brat particularly enjoyed the Kataro-Kataro…

    Never understood what some folks have against it. I mean, come on, it’s got a catgirl! And she really turns into a cat!
