hello again. I suppose this is still the thread for discussing upcoming anime coolness and so forth, so why let it die there.
First off, question to all our readers. There are a couple series I'm hoping get picked up real soon, but haven't heard whether they have or ever will be yet. Naruto and Princess Tutu. Has anyone heard anything about either of these being licensed in the US? I suspect Funimation might have the rights to Naruto as I believe it also has the rights to One Piece right now, which is also currently being released in the US's version of Shonen Jump. Odd reasoning, but I figure if they've got the rights to one, why not the other? Ninjas and pirates. The age old conflict.
As for Princess Tutu, I fear it will slip off into the depths of obscurity, but I certainly hope it doesn't. I had the chance to watch a few episodes of it at a convention and it's brilliant. Easily one of the best, if not the best magical girl anime I've ever seen. The only reason it doesn't rank number 1 right now is because I'm reserving judgement until I've seen the entire thing. Sadly, I may not get the chance if no one ever picks up the rights to it.
On another note, I more recently finished purchasing Louie the Rune Soldier, and in my niche of the country I seem to be the only one really following it. If you've seen it, please tell me what you think. I'm eager for some good conversation concerning this one.
Oh, and Twelve Kingdoms is really gaining in popularity around here. Most of my friends are already proclaiming it to be the best anime they've ever seen. I've seen a couple episodes thus far, but it was nothing that I hadn't seen before. Still, I'll reserve judgement to the end. Are there any contrary opinions to what my friends seem to be saying? Or are you guys pretty much of the same opinion?
One more note, if you guys ever want to email me, use Ssedrey@hotmail.com
from now on. the link to my email I believe is still operating under the old email address which I ditched recently. Excite will pay for it's terrible crimes... So, use the hotmail one until the link to my email is updated.
