Watched The Sacred Blacksmith last week; might do some wiki work on it, since I have so much free time right now x_x.

Several years have passed since I read the unabridged brick that inspired all these adaptations, but I do remember that Albert is most definitely Mondego/Morcerf's son in the original. I'm pretty sure that Edmund was still locked up in the Chateau d'If when Albert was born.Anyway, canonical nitpicks aside, this show is absolutely fab so far, and I'm thankful that someone jogged my memory of its existence so I could ...

Your reactions give me a pretty good idea of what the movie's feel is, and the screenshots are pretty enough that I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of the Blu-Ray, just for the pleasure of watching it.For my own part, I watched the series sometime late in middle school or early in high school; it was one of my first anime, and I definitely have a ...

This is one of my favorite anime series. I actually didn't have any problems with the ending. To be honest, the beginning is what took me some time to slog through. "This sucks," indeed, Renton. The show eventually picks up speed, however, and I loved it without reservation the rest of the way through, even to the end.@Dunchad: I really can't blame you for that. He spends the first few ...

Pfahaha. First there was a dogpile of P4-related user blogs (mine included), and now it's spreading to the front page. Chaos!Really, though, good read. I agree, the animation is quite solid. While I hope that there will be a few "new" subplots, or even just expanded ones, I'm already satisfied with how loyal this is to the original game.

According to FoxxFireArt's article from about a week ago, the series is going to run for 25 episodes. Even at the pace the first episode moved at, I'm not sure if they could even get to the bad ending in 13 episodes, let alone the good stuff.

CrackedOnyx replied to the topic Fighting Recommendations? on the Just Anime board.
I agree that Samurai Champloo has some fantastic fight scenes. Darker Than Black has a few really interesting fights, but they aren't really the focus of the show. Hm.Ah! If you're looking for really outrageous, nonsensical fights, give Sengoku Basara a try; since you like DBZ, you might enjoy it.

@Hailinel: I've avoided Trinity Soul like the plague, so I can't really compare the two. Is it really as bad as I've heard?

No worries, you don't sound like a crusty old fart. You just sound old!Kidding, kidding! Your "anime origin story" sounds quite a bit like mine, just pushed back a decade or so. This was definitely an interesting read! I might do a writeup like this myself sometime.As for your list of favorites, while most of them sound unfamiliar, I've actually been thinking about watching Zeta Gundam sometime, since it's one ...

Ooh, it's good to see that I'm not the only one blogging about this! I love that screencap of Igor, by the way--it sounds impossible, but he almost looks more ridiculous than in the games.@Little_Socrates: I agree that Yu (man, so much puntential in that name) is less talkative, but it seems like he might have a fairly distinct personality, at least from what little we've seen so far. He ...

@GunslingerPanda: I can definitely agree with you on that; I couldn't help but smile at the status screen. The day transitions and music really make you feel like you're watching, well, Persona 4.@Hailinel: My only problem with it so far is that it is so pitch perfect. It's my own fault for having seen the game first, but because this is so loyal to the game's script, I really can't ...

The Endurance Run of Persona 4 was part of what brought me to the Whiskey Media sites, so while I still haven't taken the initiative to play the game myself--it is around one hundred hours long, after all--I do have fond memories of it. I was pleasantly surprised to hear that it would be getting what sounded like a straight-up anime adaptation, and I was even more enthused to learn ...
