It was just edited for tv. not on the DVD.

the sound effects are crappy, and as I said everybody sounds flat except for Spike, and Ed is unbearable.

I don't agree with any of that, though Ed is a little annoying sometimes. I think the voices are better in the dub.

Everybody says it's a pain in the ass to read subtitles

Those people are lazy/stupid

Either way, the show is excellent, but I think the dub fits it better. I like to watch Samurai Champloo dubbed, too.

I've only started on 3 animes through the new line-up because I've been busy with Yakitate!! Japan and Yumeiro Patissier.

I watched all 4 episodes of Yumeiro Patissiere Professional, MM!, and Otome Youkai Zakuro so far.

I like them all except the fact the Yumeiro is focusing more on romance. I don't quite mind the love in MM! because it's overrall hilarious. Otome has some romance as well but is still pretty awesome. It's kind of like a historical anime and I like that. The animation is smooth.

I have so many to start on for the fall line up, but I also have a list of them I wanted to watch too. I can't get myself to get interested in Love-ru. I already watched 10 episodes of the first season and I don't think I can continue with that god awful stuff.

I'm going to start on Ichiban Ushiro no Dai Mao and Sora no otoshimono, but before I do I want your opinions on it. I don't want to get into it like Love-ru and be so disappointed in it. Thoughts?

I remember enjoying it when it was on Cartoon Network, but I didn't watch the whole show. And looking back, Suzaku and his stupid talking bird were both pretty lame. I think that was the last arc I saw. But if you like dragonball or the early dbz arcs, you'd probably like Yu Yu Hakusho.

finger bang bang you into my life

Actually, I might like to rewatch Dragonball sometime soon for the memories. I actually never saw the entire show. I think I lost track after that red ribbon army arc or blue ribbon or whatever.

I really liked Dragonball and want to watch it again someday. I think the main appeal of that show, compared to DBZ, was that it was focused on martial arts instead of aliens and energy beams. And I love the Red Ribbon/Emperor Pilaf arc, as well as the whole show, because it's hilarious seeing Goku kicking an army's ass and still retaining his innocence. And the army shits its pants, not understanding why their bullets can't hit a little boy, and fearing him.

I remember a scene where Pilaf looks on a security monitor and finds Goku walking around the halls, and he gets this "OHHHHHH SHIT" look on his face.

For some reason, I'm not interested in Hellsing. I haven't even seen it, and it doesn't interest me. Maybe it's the annoyance of religion-themed anime always having a cross visible in every single fucking frame. But in case I want to watch it, I have the entire collection right at my house.

1. Is Hellsing Ultimate separate from the series, or is it set in the future/past?

2. Is Fullmetal Alchemist good? Which is better, the first anime or Brotherhood?

It's a remake of the series, only following the comics more closely. The first couple are the same as the series, but then they both go off and do their own thing.

Ultimate is also better.

2. Is Fullmetal Alchemist good? Which is better, the first anime or Brotherhood?

FMA is quite good. It gets a bit weak towards the end, and I hated the ending. But it's worth a watch

Apparently Brotherhood is mostly fanservice to fans of the comic, and the OTT humour can be grating, but it has higher production values. Apparently Brotherhood has more of a focus on the action, sacrificing some of the philosophising, and 'depth' of the original series. I've never seen it, though.

The main reason why is crosses are used as weapons for hunting vampires, and having an ultra-powerful vampire with 2 Magnum-esqe handguns helps a lot. By the first couple of episodes or so, they talk about less and less, and focus on nefarious Nazis. If you like blood soaked fun, then do yourself a favor and watch it.

1. Is Hellsing Ultimate separate from the series, or is it set in the future/past?

The original Hellsing series strays away from the comics after episode 2 or 3, whereas the Ultimate series stays a lot more faithful to the manga. I highly recommend the Ultimate series, it's much more detailed, much more bloody, and even has a Star Wars reference for some odd reason.

2. Is Fullmetal Alchemist good? Which is better, the first anime or Brotherhood?

Like Hellsing, the FMA original series split apart from the manga, entrenching itself in a philosophical meaning about sacrafice, meaning of life and other good stuff. Brotherhood, on the other hand, focuses much more on the action and the battles than the overall philosophy of the original series.

You can't honestly go wrong with either FMA series, but I would recommend the Brotherhood slightly more than the original.

Hellsing is alright. Hellsing Ultimate is THE SHIT. We need 5 6 and 7 on DVD already. I'm annoyed at how long it's taking. I didn't like number 4 a whole lot compared to the first 3, though.

My friends just bought a a DVD of the first volume of Hellsing Ultimate. Can someone specify what the difference is between just Hellsing, and Hellsing Ultimate? Cheers.

Also while i'm here, is Lucky Star worth watching at all?

Woah, what the fuck, I didn't even realize you were discussing Hellsing. My question was purely coincidental.

I just finished watching it literally last night, and I don't think I can answer that question.

Your mileage probably depends on how much you love haruhi I guess.

and apart from all the blatant references it's pretty much like azumanga daioh in terms of content, humour, etc, so just go off that.

I couldn't make it through 5 episodes of Higurashi, I just got immensely bored with it. Not enough happening.

Same here. I got a bit further but not much, I think around 8. The plot intrigued me as did the multiple realities/playthroughs type thing going on but I really just didn't care about what happened enough to sit through twenty five minutes just to hear one or two little nuggets of information about some character I didn't care about.

That really depends, If you can understand the otaku jokes and references or if you love Haruhi, then go for it. Myself, I thought it was an okay series, better than Azumanga IMO, but not better than Haruhi.

Checked out the first few episodes of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

It's quite good, the production values are high, and it's got exciting action.

As I expected there is reasonably extensive use of that style of humour where the characters suddenly become very simple and stylised, 'super deformed'. As far as I remember that style was present in the original series, but this does it in such a way that I feel would be far more appropriate in a comic book than an anime (basically creating a scene that simply looks like a single panel in a comic book). It was the same with the Hellsing Ultimate series, I believe. That style of humour annoys me, but it plays second fiddle to the more serious focus of the majority of each episode so it's not enough to turn me off entirely.

The first episode was different to the beginning of the other series, but that difference didn't last long as the others have been fairly identical, save for minor differences in style and a few scene differences here and there. I can only hope that the series moves off in a different direction relatively quickly, as I don't have a lot of interest in simply rewatching the original with better animation and more annoying humour.

The humor is even worse in Brotherhood? I've only seen a couple episodes of FMA, but those goofy out of place moments get really annoying. The show seems pretty cool, though. I saw some good action.

Well honestly I haven't seen FMA for years so I don't quite remember what the humour was like in it. I just hate the comedy sequences in the new show that look like they've just ripped a panel straight out of the comic, which, for all I know, they may have done.

I haven't seen a lot of FMA, but I did notice that they tried too hard to make it funny. I'm really not a fan of that type of humor, especially when it feels really out of place with the rest of the series. I don't mind it when they try to lighten the mood in an anime, but a lot of times they do it in the worst possible way.

Just watched Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki based off of a friends recommendation. It would have been somewhat watchable if the voices where not so annoying. Kind of slow and I face palmed a lot during it. Not at all impressed.

Yeah, I heard about it earlier. I'll read it once I gather the willpower needed to go through the remaining volumes I haven't read (I'm on the tenth volume).

I'm reading Mx0 right now. It sucks that the manga was canceled because of low sales, though, because I'm really enjoying it.

Eh, I forgot to mention, but I also watched the second episode of Gundam Unicorn. It wasn't so bad; the animation was pretty good and the plot/story isn't terrible.

Watched Occult Academy recently, not sure what I think. Fun enough but it got less interesting as the series progressed and Maya inevitably changed tack to liking the occult. Also the last three episodes were just what the fucking shitting fuck. Pretty much softcore hentai, a final fantasy parody, and an episode that felt so dull and tacked on the end it should have been a special. But some of the facial expressions and animations were absolutely hilariously well made, and maya in the first few eps at least was a pretty great character.

Sure is over 10+ years too late.

There's no time limit on adapting a comic.

Though I'd be more excited if it was traditionally animated, rather than that strange-looking cel-shading.

Well, I hated the humor and goofiness in the episodes I saw of the first series. I'll still probably watch both eventually, though. What I saw was pretty cool despite that. The sudden out of place goofiness in Hellsing Ultimate bothered me, too, but I still love it. I'm gonna start Soul Eater soon, and I heard it's like that, too.

I loved Tenchi Muyo and Tenchi Universe when I was 10. But I still remember it and that show must have annoyed my mom.
