All Series / Your first Bee Train series
« on: January 07, 2006, 12:01:09 PM »
The first Mashimo directed (not Bee-Train related) anime I first watched was some Robin Hood stuff I used to watch as a kid when I was 10 or something. Suposedelly called Robin Hood no Daiboken. It was quite the cool and dramatic kids show, I remember some characters died and there was blood in it and all! ^^; and yeah, it was really directed by Koichi Mashimo, according to anime news network! Here's the link for details:

 I also got to see another one of those Mashimo directed (not Bee-Train related) animes later on when I was already into anime per say. It was this show called Eat-man about a mercenary travelling in a post-apocaliptic world, who eated metal stuff like guns and other things and made them come out of his hands later on to make use of them... (yeah I know... :? it was really cool though ^^; and guess what, music by Yuki Kajiura!  :mrgreen: ) Here's the link:

 The first real Bee-Train show, Mashimo directed, soundtrack by Yuki Kajiura, that became my favorite anime ever, #1 on my ranking, was Noir though ^^ (as it should ;) )! I finished it on Summer of 2002, a bit later than most hardcore noir fans out there which probably watched it around the time of its original japanese release. ^^;

 After that I made some research and came across .hack//SIGN which got to me mostly because of the soundtrack since I never really got to watch it till the end; .hack/LIMINALITY was an interesting OAV spin off from the tv series which I really liked. Then later on, I was already a Bee-Train/Yuki Kajiura fan when Avenger came up which I watched till the end and became one of my favorites till now (though the score wasn't by Yuki Kajiura on this one I must say ALI-Project made an excellent work on it!).

 Then Madlax came in shortly after and it was like the next best thing! After watching Noir I though I'd never see anything able to impress me the same way, but Madlax did. :) Of course now, since Madlax ended I've been agonizing a little over shows like Meine Liebe and Tsubasa Chronicles and I'm sure Spider Riders is one more to go ^^; and there'll probably be more like that by Bee-Train until the so expected "third one" shows up (if it ever will) around spring of 2007! Let's hope for it! ^^

All Series / "Spider Riders" in 2006?

:roll:...I...still can't believe Bee Train had a part in Medabots.

 Indeed... it must be their embarassing little secret in the past that they try very fiercely to conceal! ^^; I managed to get "Bee-Train" on Medabots credits this one time and I was so WTF :shock: about it...

 Concerning "Spider Riders"... well, I'm not very excited about it. It's not the "little kids show" premise entirely that puts me off. Tsubasa Chronicles was a kids show aswell and it was pretty awesome at times, I also used to watch Card Captor Sakura on tv (we got the unslaughtered version around here) and it wasn't bad either... but then again, those were Clamp shows, a company which holds a respectable amount of credibility already. Looking at the image of the Spider Riders book cover provided on that link I'm inclined to think this show will resemble more those "Medabots" kinds of anime which unfortunately tend to suck... :(

Ok thanks! I've edited my post aswell. :p it's too bad the gallery isn't designed to work as an image host, cuz it's not possible to attach images to posts by using the image link this way. ^^;

I've posted this on the forum gallery:

 Since I left the dreaming ballons empty feel free to fill them any way you want and post it back on this thread. Maybe something fun will come out of it... :p

All Series / Re: "Tsubasa Chronicle" might be licensed by FUNim

Well, this was unavoidable I suppose... a money maker hot title like this one seems to be... ^^; anyway, there's still the movie to look up to! that one's not licensed yet is it? and actually, if you're really looking forward to watch the second season, I suppose there'll still be "less ethical" fansub groups around willing to make it possible. ;)

MADLAX / Need More Madlax
« on: December 04, 2005, 10:35:03 PM »
Heh Actually, you're not quite as off track as you think you might be... though... oh well, I'm not supposed to tell you more... ^^;

 Also, you think the places where Madlax is (Gazth-Sonika) and Margaret is (Naffrece) are two different places separated not only by distance but by time span aswell. you mean like one of them is prior to another, or prior to the global present time, as in "stopped in time"? by "a way for people to go back and forth between them" you mean time travel or something like that? that's a bit confuse :? but I guess that's how you're supposed be feeling at this moment in the series :roll:

MADLAX / Need More Madlax

Well, in my case, noir's ending felt perfect! I wouldn't change a thing! Really, it was more than I was expecting, and it definetely felt satisfactory, as in, it leaves you with a pleasant hopeful feeling towards the characters fate! This doesn't mean, of course, that everything went well and all the characters lived happily ever after, but they sure got what they deserved in the end, so their effort didn't felt as if it was wasted... That's as much as I can say without spoiling it to who haven't seen it yet! :)

 Unfortunately I can't say the same about Madlax's ending... :( Now, not that there was anything wrongly done about it, it was quite impressive and satisfactory on its own way. Actually, under the circunstances, I suppose it was as satisfactory as it could get at the moment. ^^; The problem I personally found was not exactly on the last episodes but on those few close to the end episodes, around episodes 20 to 24... I'll just say some of the characters didn't get such as fortunate fate as I would have expected for them... :p Anyway, I don't mean to discourage you from following it till the end. Definetely watch it till the last episode, cuz even if some things might go diferentely than you had wished they won't fail to impress you for sure! :)

I have some ideas as well, but I hesitate whether there are enough scenes of Mireille looking suitably brainless...

 I can remember Mireille looking kinda brainless, at least on her face, when she's dodging a shot from one of the mafia guys from the first Intocabille episode. She leans forward on the wall's edge in the middle of a gunfight to see if there's danger ahead and she gets surprised by a close shot that almost scratched her faced. I always thought her reaction was kind of brainless in a blonde kind of way. I mean, like she wasn't ecxpecting it at all... in the middle of a gunfight!? :?
 There's also that part in the mad tea party episode where she goes to open the door in an unsuitable attire, in the middle of the night, without knowing who to expect. And as if that wasn't idiotic enough, she even lets an unexpected guest enter her house without a reaction, she just stands there looking as Chloe moves further inside her apartment and checks the place... :roll:
 She also fails to impress on the Shaoli episodes where she stupidily allows herself to become an hostage, or when she's fighting in the roof against the knights of Paris, when she stops for a while to get her hair right and, because of that distraction I believe, she almost falls off the roof getting hang on the edge by mere luck... :p
 If you think about it, Mireille displays many of those "blonde" moments right from the first episode where she gets completely pwned by those black suited guys, just because she was imprudent enough to get too close to let herself get punched in the face! ^^;
 She also must have some kind of "dumb blonde" complex going on cuz she constantly feels the need of quoting well known literature authors like "Ernest Hemingway", "Fyodor Dostoevsky" or even "Edgar Alan Poe" just to make her sound "oh so very smart".
 Now, it's not like I have something against Mireille's character or anything but... I can't see Kirika getting on those kind of situations this oftenly... ^^

Crackpot Theory (TM):
It's going to be some kind of insane "Tsubasa-Chronicle"-like alternate universe with ".hack" characters and Layla Ashley, with Ludwig & Orpheus as the mysterious "anti-Noir".  In fact, that might be what the rumored ".hack" movie is going to be...

 What the...???!!! :? heh now you've really done it! ^^; but you know what?
Spoiler: show
HELL NO!!! :shock:

That's all right.MartAnimE provided the lyrics, and I felt silly anyways when I went to and found them asterisked below the other lyrics. :D

 I didn't get them on animelyrics though :p I just had this txt file around with lyrics I copied a long time ago from somewhere else I can't remember... I can get you the official dvd translation too if you want. ^^

 Oh btw, thanks for the "Kiri-cookie"! ^^;

Ok, I got one: you know you've been watching too much noir when...

... you think Kirika's gun (Beretta M1934) actually looks cute ^^ even though you recognize it's kinda disturbing to call any kind of gun "cute" :?

... still, it IS cute ^^

I meant the bridge of Nowhere, where a much deeper voice sings while Yuuka sings, and the deep part ends with 'Take me to the Nowhere land'.

 I suppose you mean this:

hontou no anata yo hontou no watashi ga
deaeru basho made kitto ikeru hazu
unmei ni somuite namida wo chirashi te
sore demo aitai
we will reach to nowhere land
take me to the nowhere land

    (english translation)

    The real you and the real me,
    will definitely reach our meeting spot.
    Disobey fate, scatter tears,
    even so I want to meet you.
    we will reach to nowhere land
    take me to the nowhere land

... the translation might differ from the official dvd version though, I got this somewhere long ago, way before the dvd release.

Noir / Too Much Noir

Well, there's this thing with the popcorn... whenever I go to the cinema and I enter in the darkened room, then I hear someone stepping on popcorn and I can't help thinking "OMG, we're all gonna die!!! Kirika ambushed us with the popcorn!!! Everyone get to to the ground or run for your lives!!!" :shock: ... of course I don't voice this out loud though.... ^^

 Anyway... yeah, when this happens to you, you know you've been watching too much noir! :D

p.s. oh, and I do avoid stepping on popcorn aswell! :?
