I don't even really remember. I was just mildly entertained. I was probably about 17 when I saw it.

It is a bit flawed, in all honesty, but I still consider it to be rather classic to my personal self.

For example,unless you're familiar with the majority of the plot from the manga, the anime neglects to elaborate on certain key plot points. It was rather disorganized in that way, I find.

You mean Sailor Moon or Pichi Pichi Pitch?
Both are good mahou shoujo series; Sailor Moon pretty much set the standard.
Pichi Pichi Pitch was good overall, but the voices were lacklustre and the soundtrack was cheaply produced; they could've used real bass guitars, strings and horns, but they skimped out and used synths for most everything. (Plus they took a few liberties and diverted away from the manga in several places, probably so it could be aired in the time slot it was shown in.)

And what's up with 4kids as mentioned in your other post?

There was a rumor floating around for a while that 4Kids was planning to buy the rights to Negima and redub it. (I heard this from a fellow Newgrounder several years ago; so far it's seemed bogus.)

I should give it a lookover, although, oftena good OST either makes or breaks the memorableness of a series for me. Does that mean the manga was the better incarnation?

If they're planning to edit it, dumb it down for 4kidsTv... that's going to either be really funny and/ or really stupid. Especially since it's supposed to be a sexual harem series. :P

If Negima is the same thing that I'm thinking of, that's rather bizarre.

I remember reading a manga volume of it. In one chapter, some girls were fighting over who 'got' the main character as a room mate or something, I don't know. And they were all in the changing rooms, so they decided "hey, let's have a breast size contest". And then they all compared breast sizes.

Then the main character made the main girls breasts grow and she won the competition.

That sort of thing may be the standard in Japanese kids comics, but I wouldn't expect to see it in anything kids orientated in America.

Maybe the cartoon is different. I don't know.

---

I just watched Ponyo. I thought it was great.

Very happiness inducing. Much like My Neighbour Totoro. Not quite as good as that, but still great.

The art was breathtaking, as is the usual for Miyazaki films. The English voice actors were great (as I watched it in English). Everything was good.

Not at all disappointing like that Howl's Moving Castle.

Just saw the first episode of arakawa under the bridge. Pretty boss. Heroman was pretty sweet too. Arakawa under the bridge had this whole SZS humor thing going for it. In a good way. Heroman turned out to be exactly what I thought it would be. In a good way.

I'm looking forward to this anime season.

Yeah, I guess you could say that.
I was only able to get my hands on 4 of the 7 volumes before Del Rey pulled it from the shelves, but from what I've read there were plenty of liberties taken (e.g. Nicola and Lucia run a bathhouse in the manga and a hotel in the anime) and there was quite a bit of sexual content either dumbed down or removed altogether. On a side note, there were plenty of Splash references to hold my attention.

As I said before, those rumors are mostly bogus, as 4Kids has been hemorrhaging money over the past few years and now fast being delisted from the New York Stock Exchange. There's no way in Hell they'd have enough money to spend on all the cuts, voices and stuff they're known for doing.

p.s. 4Kids TV no longer exists, as the company's contract with Fox expired in 2008; they now run The CW 4Kids (what used to be Kids' WB).

Man, I am sick of series based around a group of high school girls.

Now that I'm out of high school, I'd just feel creepy watching them. Not to mention high school girls going about their day to day lives isn't usually particularly interesting subject matter.

Man, I just finished the first episode. Blahhhhhhhhhh. It was a letdown. I don't remember if k-on was always like this, but parts were just very very boring. The op and ed were both worse than last season. It just didn't feel right for me. I think I'll stick to Working! for my moe this season. Actually thinking of dropping k-on. Depends on the next episode. Definitely won't rewatch this episode with subs.

It was the legit stream from the japanese channel that it was airing on. Shit's done by now, but trust me, you're not missing out on much.

Meh, it's anime. I totally get what you mean, but I kind of remember k-on being more fun than it is right now.

Next on my watch list is angel beats. Hopefully this is going to be better. I'm really hoping that it isn't another "11eyes" anime.

So, how weeaboo am I, on a scale from 1 to 10, when I'm writing my thesis on the Finnish anime fan culture? I'm going to mostly consentrate on the fandom reaction to Silver Fang, Full metal Alchemist and Axis Powers Hetalia.

I have noticed a pattern with Desert Punk during the first four episodes.

The episodes with Junko, the large breasted woman, are significantly worse than the episodes without her.

Eh, I didn't really like soul eater that much. I kind of liked the concept, and I think it's a good concept for the type of show that it is. I kind of liked it at the beginning, but as it went further and further I really started losing interest. Also, the humor was kind of corny. For a shounen to be interesting it should also accompany some sort of humor. Or something.

Nah

I'm on episode 9 of gurren lagann. I feel ashamed I haven't watched it sooner. especially since it's one of the few shows where the dub isn't complained about. they got a few barrels worth of voice talent in that thing. I swear I recognized half of the cast on voice alone. plus the show itself is just epic. the characters are interesting too.

Epic, huh?
It could've been much better, namely if Kamina had lived longer than he did...

I must have missed something because I found the show to be 'okay'. I found Simon annoying and Kamina was just another stereotypical big brother with a loud mouth whose death really didn't have any staying power with me.

It's like the whole Eli Vance thing all over again where everyone Bawwws about some character who I couldn't have cared less about. I simply stopped watching the show regularly because Simon's emo act kinda ticked me off after a while.

Half way through with the Manga of it, and waiting for my DVD of it to get in the mail, it's not bad I like it but it-to me looked misleading by looking at the front, I didn't think it was so perverted until later I realized it was made by the same guy who made Love Hina.
