Yeah kinda rember back in early 90s discussion of gods an super heroes. Kinda cool idea at the time but eh a intelectual property now is more developed than say gee Mercury an the Flash have alot in comman, specialy the golden age one.That said its not like creators of years past had all original ideas either.Also its not like panthons had overlap on deities an powers to.

Campione! kinda deals with the overlap in a way to in its universe.Personaly kinda want a story worth the time more than where the story may or may not have come from,or even the writers intent.

Man that show. I watched all of it purely for the fan service scene near the end, the one on the beach. That's also a show that went out of it's way to implement fan service directly into the plot.

Anyway, thanks for the Q and A, Sam and Tom! Keep up the great work. Oh, and with the literature episode Eureka 7 directly referenced the Golden Borough repeatedly. I keep forgetting to bring that up.

@NickyCharisma: Yeah it tried.. kinda. Most "fan service" is put in on purpose. Tho a good drinking game would be to watch say Najica Blitz Tactics an every time they show a panty shot take a drink.. we should volunteer Sam for this for one of his drunken anime reviews.

I have to say this show started as a guilty pleasure for me (a very guilty one) and then it was like wait...I am learning shit about mythology here!....and then they got to the injection of holy "essence" scene and it became a guilty sinful pleasure again. It really was an odd show....

Sigh...still oshi hate...sigh...you really need to do a dragon ball z oshi mash up...oshi can philosophize Goku to death...

@zaldar: Yeah its one of those "it could have been" shows. But it did try to do the multiple faces of gods on one um deity so to speek at one time to.I stayed for the animation quality tho .. thats my story an im sticking to it.

zaldaron July 5, 2013 at 2:51 p.m.

@Marshal Victory: hmm I don't see that they did the multiple faces of god on one diety...but they did show the connection of various gods in a very interesting way. The action, humor, and wtf are they going to do next kept me there. Not to say the animation quality was bad though. And I admit to enjoying some good echii to *shrug*

Marshal Victoryon July 5, 2013 at 7:14 p.m.

@zaldar: Oh by all means i dont mind ecchi at all.I mean look at my favorites list. Just saying the antimation was pretty solid . Athena serves sevrial deity faces actualy. "Athena was the serpent goddess/serpent of Mother Earth, the goddess of life and death, and the goddess of womanly wisdom." Maybe my memory is off , but thought they had her with difrent names for difrent cultures as well.

zaldaron July 6, 2013 at 1:36 a.m.

@Marshal Victory: Ah yes they did do that I had forgotten they connected her to Issis which at the time I thought was a little odd...but after doing a little research made good sense. We can make favorites lists on here...?

Marshal Victoryon July 6, 2013 at 1:57 p.m.

@zaldar: you can make multiple lists actualy. My favorites list is really any anime i seen thats average an above. Course any opion is subjective. But kinda hoped for a list that i could go back to if i want to as a reminder .I have a owned dvd/blue ray list as well. some Neet features an have actualy been helpful to me on rembering what liked an why.
