Nekkid time!

Is Tim the first character to see adult Integra naked other than Alucard? Walter obvious saw her when a child from being a butler, but I doubt he did with the adult. We know Alucard peeped. I think the most Seras saw was Integra in her undies back when they changed in "Shine or Die" (not that it happened due to timey wimey). Hmmm.

This may be an odd observation to make during nekkid time, but I notice that glasses are not a part of it.

Anyone mind translating the font in the last panal? I can't make out some of the words.

I believe it reads "Rose of the noble castle.... power of Dios that sleeps within me... heed your master and come forth!"

Hmm... I wonder if those trippy dueling songs are tied to the arena or the sword. Because Integra needs a good one.

(reads latest strip)

How in the world is Timothy going to pull this off? Isn't Anthy the holder of the Sword of Dios?

Nice dress for Timmy. And that black outfit really suits Integra.

I imagine Integra's duel song could be the remix of Logos Naki World. "Bachelorette" by Bjork also works (there's a great Utena AMV set to it).

I love that Integra's uniform includes a tie!

I gotta know, is the crossdressing thing actually from the original series that we're taking this from?

for Interga's role sort of. From what I understand it was one of those Girl wants to be the knight in shinning armor girl mangas. The review i watched mostly ranted about over use of stock footage and repeated plots for the anime. (thought he is our ranty anime reviewer) That stairway that's forming is one of them.

Sorta. Integra's taking the role of Utena, who wore a very non-standard boys' uniform and a similar dueling outfit. Timmy's filling in for Anthy, the girl who gave him this power back when he went to Japan with Heinkel and Yumiko.

Because it is appropriate: Zettai unmei mokushiroku.

I feel old. Guess a license lapsing and a series going out of print for a few years really makes a difference. But there's a new edition out now that's supposed to be better and shinier.

i had heard that it was an expressive series. I can't remember if that was because it was out of print or the box sets were overpriced to begin with. Old episodes of anime world order tend to blend together after a while.

I'd STILL like to know what happened to the rest of Millennium all during this adventure. I know what happened to Doc, Schro and Zorin... but what about the Captain, Rippy and the Dandy Man?

And since they're both plucky young girls bent on adventure, it'll end on a huge musical number and the two becoming BFF's! And Lupin will make off with something shiny.

At least, that's how I wish it'd end... XD

I am totally humming Mokushiroku right now. Integra had better use these powers wisely, or she might end up transformed into a car!
