You know what's really the sad part guys? No matter how mad SAO made me, and oh god all the rage, I'm still going to watch SAO II just to review it. That's it, I've lost control of my life. XD

@Elfenlied1012: tell me about it. I don't watch it for the story I just watch it for the action. Plus shouldn't this be season three since season one would have been sao and season 2 was alfeheim? I'm not really much on keeping track on what season is what but still.

@Shadowchaos: You would think right? But apparently no.

@Elfenlied1012: well I guess they don't have the same ideas as us of where the seasons should be divided.

Wow at the comments! Seriously guys this makes my day! Back on Comic Vine it was over a year ago when I last had that many PM's in my inbox. This is fantastic! LOL. Also sorry I haven't been participating in the discussion thus far, I was having tires put on, and then I had to finish up at work.

@takashichea: I used to like dubs before they totally started to suck. It was like when the 90's ended the industry decided that quality voice acting wasn't necessary. I remember the voice work on Gundam Wing, Dragon Ball Z, Outlaw Star, and such being superb. Here lately though, it just seems really cheesy and voices a lot of times don't match up. Then again maybe I just have my nostalgia goggles on, since the 90's were like my anime Golden Years.

@Shadowchaos: How are you getting a hold of the light novels? Do they serialize them in english or do you read translations? Or can you read the actual Kanji?

@Elfenlied1012: I'm going to watch SAO II as well, and I'll probably be mesmerized by it like I was before. Awesome fight scenes can often pull the wool over my eyes on a lot of things. By the way, it's not always a bad idea to bring a sword to a gun fight, especially if you find yourself in close range, but in Kirito's case it sounds like they are over doing it a bit. hehe ^_^

@Delphic: I have this app on my phone but I think there might be a website which has them translated. Also what you said about Gundam Wing I have to disagree with. They had some really bad voice actors in there. My two biggest hates there being Duo and Relena. Also I guess Zechs was kind of bad. It might jut be that I watched it in subs then found a dub copy of endless waltz since I couldn't get a hold of a sub copy.

@Delphic: I'm with Shadow on this, I mean some shows just were awesome dubbed thanks to one or two talented people, but most early anime is just impossible to tolerate dubs. Modern dubs aren't actually that bad, I really think part of it has to do with we don't know how Japanese is suppose to sound, so we don't catch weird screw ups like we do EVERY-TIME in English.

Also some dubs are just bad....really really bad. I'm talking about you ga-rei zero....

@Elfenlied1012: yeah and the fact that in Gundam Wing they translated Millard to being Millardo when the do part was just the way they said it in japanese but it was put down as Millard.

Okay, guys don't be talking bad about Gundam Wing in my forum. -_- LOL.

Nah, it's okay, but one thing about me is that I am a massive Gundam fan, and Wing was not only the first Gundam I saw, but also the first anime I saw, and I have very fond memories of it, so I am a little defensive of it. Haha.

@Shadowchaos: Now I agree with you on Relena, and practically every other female character in Gundam Wing. Scott McNeil as Duo Maxwell though was fantastic! Yeah sure I thought he really blundered on the "God of Death/Great Destroyer" lines, and the infamous "NNNNNOOOOOO!!!!" Line was really over the top (by the way did you know he passed out in the booth while recording that?) I also thought Brian Drummond did very well as Millardo (though the Millard thing is new to me). Not to mention you had Brad Swaile in Gundam Wing who is well known as mister "I'll take a potato chip AND EAT IT!" Light Yagami.

@Elfenlied1012: Well maybe it is like I said before, perhaps I'm looking back on my days as a young teenager who was mesmerized by anime at that time though rose colored glasses with an extra thick glazing of nostalgia on the lenses. I agree with you though that some were really bad, but thankfully most of those have been omitted from memory...except for MD Giest and I have 's Ani-Crap review of it to thank for reminding me of the only anime that gave me nightmares. haha!

@Delphic: Now don't get me wrong, I love me some Gundom Wing. I remember playing the toonami web game for Gundom wing when I was young even.

@Delphic: I love Gundam Wing just saying the dub stinks.
