Well seeing as this thread has been resurrected, I'll share about what I've learned since I first posted. After reading the manga it seems like the pre-duel monsters parts were adapted for TV first (although there are many differences between the manga and those eps.). Later Duel Monsters was adapte...

Diablo. Epic series since game 1. And all the more reason for me to get a new computer ASAP.

Doubtful it'll happen. Because of the age of the series, any gain to picture quality or sound would be minimal, at best. Indeed there is probably little that can be done with the actual picture quality (unless reanimated the whole thing). Although, they might be able to get better sound if they sti...

I completely sympathize with your position Tiff. Each episode must take hours to pour over and annotate (especially with all the little snippets that throw the timing off). Most people with jobs and families just wouldn't have time for that, and doing it for a few years probably just burns you out. ...

I can understand some of the arguments that might be thrown at a young Christan person about Anime. 1) Its use of magic. 2)Its focus on more mature themes. 3) Its level of violence. 4) Its level of sexuality. All this seems to be aimed at children, and many feel that it is wrong. Personally I think ...

Shinji Ikari from Evangelion. He seemed to be just a whiner to the end. He was so depressing throughout the whole show. Everytime he seemed to cheer up he was back to whining in the next scene. Asuka Langly Soryu also from Evangelion. While Shinji was too much of a man-bitch, Auska was way to much ...

Then when DIC lost the license and the dubbing was done by Optimum, the entire cast had to be replaced for practical reasons (studio was most likely in a different part of the country). Just my speculation though. By the entire cast you mean Serena,Amy,and Mina? (who's VA did Raye for Dic's last 17...

Well I always thought that it was because the part was casted to Terri in the first place, but for some reason she couldn't record for the first 10 dup eps. So they brought in Tracy to cover. She also did a couple of others, so I'm guessing Tracy was always the understudy for the part. Then when DIC...

Senshi_of_vision; I totally agree. Why aren't colleges and universities safer? They should have plenty of money they can put toward security. Not only that, but many public universities receive state funding. We haven't had a problem with violence on that level at my school (obviously), but smaller...

The problem with the statement is that he singles out Israel, and then says all the Jewish people, are responsible for the instability in the middle east.

The biggest problem I see for Fantasy shows is that they require the creation of a whole complex world: with history, art, religion, creatures, rules of magic, cosmology, and sometimes even original languages. Then you have to find a narrow part of the history that can work independently to bring pe...

One thing that really confuses me about the "Baby Grace" story is that the father of the child really seemed to want her (I think he was in the middle of a big custody battle with the mother). The mother takes off around the country with the child only to end up assisting in the murder. If the mothe...

I thought that Mistuishi Kotono was the only voice of Usagi/Sailor Moon in Japanese. Did she have 2 VAs in Japanese too? If so...freaky.
