I thank you sir, for that ringing endorsement! Oh, that reminds me - what did you think of Cosmo Police Justy? That's one of my favorite examples of historical BitTorrent archiving. I really enjoyed that video back in the day, and I KNEW it was never going to be released here. Lo and behold, one day...

Welcome to the big time, baby!!! I understand how you feel - I still have my VHS dub tapes from back in the day. However, the plethora of fansubbed shows are fantastic - and those groups who reach back in the stacks to sub shows that would never reach the light of day otherwise are to be commended. ...

Only a couple of episodes, nearly thirty years ago. I've thought about downloading this one. So it's worth it, eh?

Please, by all means, tell me more!

Okay, so I'm not crazy, and I didn't misremember both my hobby-mags and the manga... I wasn't impressed with the ending, but there was some beautiful animation in Ex Machina. Also, MAD PROPS for the opening sequence!!! I was hoping for more along the lines of Woo's Hard-Boiled, but hey, we gotta tak...

Ben & Tachyon:

The answers to both your questions can be found at Tokyo Toshokan (tokyotosho.com). This is the place to be for the latest stuff!

Use their search function to locate Gundam Evolve, as well as Xam'd.

Good hunting, troopers! I'm on my way there now to see what's new!

On a different subject, I apologize for not starting a new thread, but I need to bring this show to your attention: Bounen no Xam'd. To oversimplify, it's "Eureka 7 meets Nausicaa." As goofy as that may sound, Bones has found the right permutation of the concept. I am grooving on Xam'd as hard as I ...

I like 'em muchly. The little snippets of backstory shown are really neat, and provide lead-in to the events in various Gundam shows. Even if you haven't seen the shows referenced, they're still way cool little shorts. My favorite one is the rollout of the Dendrobium unit. It's one of the best "whol...

Oh, one more thing: Tachyon, you're awfully generous by describing the main characters as "odd ducks." The four main pilots have been, for the most part, real weenies. The strength of the writing is that they made them *intriguing* weenies, good enough to get me to stick around and watch them develo...

Tachyon: The second half starts in October. Rest assured I'll be shrieking about it the day it shows! As you know, Part 1 ends with some interesting and deadly changes in characters and situation. There are a couple of teaser trailers out at Tokyo Toshokan, but I have not watched them yet. Right now...

Well, so far, not as dark as Ideon. I mean, that show gives off vibes of "DOOMED AS DOOMED CAN BE!" from beginning to (bizarre) end. :D That said, Layzner is pretty damn dark - I didn't realize that these guys are just cosmic thrill-killers. I'm up to ep. 7, and I find myself thinking, "will somebod...

Try not to sweat it, GG. Let me be among the last to welcome you back to GEARS! I also commend you for speaking out at AnimeNation forums. Noble, but pearls before swine and all that...

Mr. March: A word to the wise: Do yourself a favor and refrain from screeds on "why my mecha designer's work is better than X." There are a lot of people on this site who enjoy the work of a lot of different mecha designers. I understand you really enjoy Mr. Kawamori's work, but putting down Mr. Oha...

Area88 - Thank you and all of your group for finally doing this show. I've waited 23 years to get all of what was happening in Layzner, and you guys are making the wait worthwhile. Yeah, this is a truly dark show. While not as shoot-yourself depressing as VOTOMS (yet), it's not for the faint of hear...
