I'll never get enough of watching Ed and Al do their thing.
This series is twice as long as the original anime, but it follows the manga more closely than the original. It's important to not think of this series as the original; there's so much different in this series than the original that it may make you dislike it because honestly, it's how the human brain works. We can't see something one way and then see it a new way and like it.
The episode where Nina and Alexander become a Chimera doesn't pack the punch it does in the original, but Trisha's death is in your feels almost constantly. The Liore story is almost completely gone and only mentioned in an episode or two and it's a lot different original as well. Rose's entire being is made as far less in this series than in the original one. The entire ending is different, the Humunculi are different; save for Lust, Envy and Gluttony, those three are still the same in look and everything else, but those three are fan favorites (I personally have a soft spot for Envy); but Pride, Wrath, Sloth and Greed are different.
There's a ton of new characters in this series that fans of the original who have never read the manga didn't even know existed. You'll like some, you'll want to punch some in the face... repeatedly. And Xiao Mei is panda not a cat!
The way this series ends, I'd love to see a new spinoff appear. Perhaps one that focuses and Al and May while Al is in Xing learning Alchehistory, or perhaps from Ed's point of view while he's off in the west learning what he can from Creta and territories even further west.
This series, while complete, leaves a lot unanswered and a lot open. And unlike the original, the movie doesn't tie up those ends. We can only hope that our pleas will be heard and they will give a little more Alchemy to get by on.
Tsukasa finds he's unable to logout of The World. He's known as one of the most skilled Wavemaster in game. It's unknown how he got this reputation since he's a terrified boy who can't get out of the game.
This series wraps you up tight from the very beginning and leaves you with your jaw on the floor by the time it finishes.
This set includes both OVA that are tied to this series: .hack//Intermezzo and .hack//Unison. Intermezzo lets viewers learn just a little bit about Mimiru and why she chose that name for Avatar. It's a really touching episode. Unison is a huge block party in Net Slum that takes place after the .hack//quarantine game and brings both, characters from Sign and Quarantine together for the first time. It's an amazing episode and it's so awesome seeing them all together like that.
This series is a must-have for fans for the video games, and I would recommend it to those who like anime like SAO and Accel World.
Madison, Troy and Alicia are hauled off to a Military fuel depot where they meet up with Nick and Luciana. When the depot is overrun with infected, Madison's group and the militants have little choice but to join forces to survive.
This series really brings the show together and gives it a life of its own. Before now, it was almost a poor copy of TWD, now, it's got its own life and the story is finally unfolding enough for viewers to get a real feel for the characters, even the ones that don't survive. I look forward to seeing Season 4.
I love this series, ever since I was little. Alf was my hero when i was a kid lol.
This box set, while it contains all the episodes beautifully put together and restored, they aren't in any real order and some episodes are in the box set twice on different discs. The final season is the only one that's actually in order. I assume they had to keep true to it because of how the series ended. I'd forgotten that the series finale was supposed to be a season finale and we don't know what happens until the Project ALF movie.
This isn't available here inthe U.S. yet, though I'm sure it will be since the other 3 are. I bought mine off eBay from a U.K. seller.
This series is amazing. I love how it's a kids show, it's just in your face enough for adults to enjoy too. It's totally paranormal and tackles not only things teenagers deal with daily, but things adults do too and of course, things wolf-shifters deal with it.
Astral Ocean begins almost two decades after the original Eureka Seven series ends. I believe the new Hi Evolution movie that's releasing soon will be covering the time in between the two series.
This story follows Ao, Eureka and Renton's son. who's outcasted by most of the people on the island he lives on because they believe his mother is the reason the Scub Coral are attacking and why the Secrets keeps appearing. Then, Ao finds Nirvash and things begin to look up for him as he joins up with a group of kids, just like him, who fly mechs and fight Secrets.
The downside to this story? There's a storyline, but it almost gets lost in all the fight scenes. The entire series is like one big battler. Renton is only in a couple of episodes and not for very long, and Eureka is not the Eureka we know and love really. The time between the original and AO has changed her so much. Even Nirvash is different.
As to this copy? It's a S.A.V.E. copy. That just means it costs less as a reproduction than the first edition copy does.. by a LOT. It still has everything the original copies do, it just doesn't have the interior artwork books or bulky casing the originals do.
This series is just amazing. Even if you aren't a fan of mech, this series will hook you with the Romeo & Juliet feel of the storyline.
Renton is the young son of the famous Adroc Thurston, the prestigious scientist who discovered that the Scub Corals could in fact communicate with the humans if given the chance. He also found the mech called Typ-0... also known as Nirvash, a mech with a life of its own. When Eureka, a strange pink-eyed, green-haired girl enters his life, Renton gets to live his dream and board the Gekko State, an anti-government ship famous for not only shedding light on the government's shady business through their self-published magazine, but for catching kill trapars.
This anime is a classic and should be in everyone's collection. And really, with the new trilogy coming out (Hi Evolution releases August 14, people!) it would be good to grab it for the price Amazon has it for.
While I absolutely LOVE this series, I can't help but feel like I was ripped off. Around episode 5 of the first disc, the disc seems to randomly go into fast forward for minutes causing you to lose sound and portions of the episode. This ruins the series for me. I don't want to watch it in soundless fast forward. Due to this "glitch" I'll now have to spend even more money to find a copy that actually works properly.
The series itself is such an amazing, action-filled love story that its hard not to fall in love with it, even if you aren't a fan of mechs and scifi.
This series is far shorter than R1 and R2 are, but it's because if I'm not mistaken, this series is in reality a set of OVA. It takes place between R1 and R2, before the brief time in R2 when Lelouch doesn't remember that he's Zero and Rolo shows up. It's before that. The OVA doesn't have much of Lelouch or Sasuki in it, but it let's viewers know where Lelouch was during the break between R1 and R2.
I really liked this series. Akito is such a lost boy. Unwanted by pretty much everyone even though his sword skills are unmatched by everyone except his older brother, who happens to hate him with every fiber of his being.
There's a lot of feels in this series, which is expected if you've ever watched the R1 and R2 seasons.
This copy is flawless and I would recommend this version of the series above any others. This copy comes with collectible postcard-sized pics of all the characters, including Lelouch and Sasuki.
R2 starts a year after R1 ends (Akito the Exiled takes place between these seasons and fills in some blanks). Lelouch is living life as a normal student with his younger brother, Rolo. Nunnally is really the only one that remembers that Lelouch is her brother. This season gives you sucker-punches in the feels the entire time.
I have no idea how they plan on having R3 happen with how R2 ends, but there's a theory floating around that would make complete sense and make it not only doable, but believable. We'll just have to wait and see.
