It is never stated overtly, but implied in several contexts. First off, the power of the Ginzuisho was implied several times throughout the first season. Second, in the original, there is no doubt that four of the five senshi die, and it is strongly hinted at that Usagi would too, if she used the fu...

well, for the "god moding" part, I have a funny story about that. My old DM from way back in the day, had someone walk in with a pre made char sheet. Well, this guy had the Uber God Mode going with something along the lines of a lvl 30/31 Rogue/Sorcerer and humongous enchantments on his armaments. W...

Well, unless I just missed it, no one mentioned Kadowaki from Hikaru no Go. He only shows in one episode in the regular series, but one of the things he does in his 10 minute appearance is start ogling some of the older female insei. Overall, I'd say his perversion to appearance ratio matches that o...

California's tax laws rock. Since I live out of state because of military duties, I get everything I payed to CA back. That's going to be over $400 next year. Edit to add: Shit, I forgot, I'm going to Monterey in a few months, and will be there for a while. Oh well, the last two tax returns were rea...

I forgot two, rather minor, but I'm sure you've heard of them. Ashley Parker Angel, and Jennifer Stigile, who are both from my hometown and close to my age. For those who aren't Lunar fans, Jenny Stigile sang the songs for the original Lunar, and Ashley Angel made it even bigger as a member of O-town.

Didn't they give him that stereotypical Irish accent? I don't have the dubbed version readily available, so I can't just look it up.

The Senshi bicker a lot, but when the fight gets serious, they pull together as a team. And believe me, that's not just a plot device. I have problems with other soldiers in my unit all the time, but were we to deploy tomorrow, I would trust any of them with my life, and would lay down my life to sa...

DiC get their hands on Mononoke Hime *trembles in sheer terror at the thought*. I'm going to have to go against the grain. I understood the movie quite well, and loved it. The story was just beautiful, if a little sad. Hotaru no Haka, loved it as well. Spirited away, great movie. I saw a copy of Mon...

SS or FF, um, Sailor Planet Power, anyone? Still, if the FF could keep the senshi from using it, they could win then, although with World shaking to deal with the Thing, and Mercury's Aqua Rhapsody to deal with Johnny. Mars and Neptune are too intuitive to let a sneak attack happen, especially with ...

I've met the Daughter of Merle Haggard before, talked to her a couple of times, and I met her Father once. I think I've seen Joe Montana and Clint Eastwood before, but I couldn't get close enough to verify that. All three either live near my hometown or have a property there they visit regularly.

I wouldn't say that the sect is that small, close to a third of the US agree with the 700 Club. So when Pat Robertson says to not let your kids watch something, it's not long before the John Hagees and such start saying something, and then most of your conservative christian leadership is saying som...

I'm also of the "grain of salt" crowd, and I don't mess with the spirits either. Too much grey area science hasn't covered yet, and I don't need some pissed off spirit following me to Iraq or something. As for the circle, you could make it, you'd just need a string, a weight heavy enough to hold in ...

For me, the biggest pet peeve is when the accent is forced. As an amateur linguist now, and soon to be professional linguist, I can tell. I've been studying languages since I was about 6 or 7. When the story line takes place in a major city, I can understand giving characters different accents, as t...

Let's see, Naruto, by default, I've seen enough Ninja Anime of different kinds to know when a creator has gone off the deep end. Evangelion, same reason as above, after so many Mecha Anime, especially ones that make me want to own a giant robot myself, it just didn't do it for me. InuYasha, same rea...

Cable Networks have to abide by FCC regs, they're just subject to a slightly different set of regs, determined by the fact that it is a luxury option to have cable, and any cable box now rented is by law equipped with V-chip technology.

The ironic thing, for me, it was Sailor Moon. The first episode I ever saw was from the first season, and I saw it dubbed one morning while I was home sick from school (this was about 1994), and I absolutely hated it. Well, flash forward about five years, I had a broken jaw, couldn't do anything, so...

I missed them all, really, but due to personal experience, I think having them fade out over time was a very good plot device. It's how life can be sometimes. What about the friends you knew a few years ago that you never talk to anymore?
