Gundam Z is awesome! I blasted though the whole thing on one vacation (52 eps or whatever it is, is a lot for one week). I got Gundam Double Zeta and watched about 5 before I put it on the back burner. I think I needed to watch some other stuff, even though it seemed like it was gonna be good.
I watched 5 episodes of GaoGaiGar tonight. It's a tough show to push on people. It's kinda like a show for 12 year olds and is almost similar to the new Transformers show; however, it kicks ass. The action is great, the designs are phenominal, it's got great characters...

Realizes that I now have nothing to look forward to since Battlestar finished
The filler arc of like 7000 useless episodes is over and it's back onto the manga storyline. They jumped ahead 2 years so everyone is slightly older and stuff. 45 minute special is up right now, I'm totally grabbing this when I get home. Rock and Roll!
Also...started watching Trinity Blood which is excellent. Vampire Hunter D meets Trigun with all kinds of wacky religious stuff (Vampire trying to destroy the Vatican, main character is a priest who happens to be a Vampire but is as goofy as Vash the Stampede). Great Stuff.
I bought the thinpak collection of Full Metal Panic. Only watched 2 episodes with Alaxy but we laughed, and laughed, and laughed. They were frakkin' great.
Holy Eff! I just watched episodes 221 and 222 of Naruto and it was so amazingly great. Like I said, it's back to following the manga and the difference is totally noticeable! While I'm not sure it was worth the 100 Episode wait, I'm glad that I get one of my favorite animes back.
Sept 22...Keroro Gunsou finally on DVD!
Jet Flyin', Limo Ridin', Kiss Stealin', Wheelin' Dealin' Son of a Gun
I started slowly Friday night, and before I knew it, I had watched 9 episodes back to back. I just couldn't stop. I decided to watch the whole thing until ep. 26, and then watch End of Evangelion.
And you guys know what? I prefered ep. 25-26.
I know, I know, but I found that if you grasp what's going on, it's a better ending than End of Evangelion, because End of Evangelion doesn't really have a conclusion, just more questions. It's much prettier, and there's a much bigger budget, but ep. 25-26 seem to better conclude the direction the series had been taking since midway through, with all the existential stuff.
Now obviously, all this gets thrown out the window because of Rebuild of Evangelion, but as it stands, ep. 25-26 get my vote.
I don't know how many of you caught the Beck marathon on Muchmusic this weekend, but I really enjoyed it. I haven't watched much animé on TV, and the first time the cut screen for a commercial came on, I was very surprised that a commercial actually came on!
I won't mention anything from the show, because I know some *ahem Giome* that want to watch it haven't done so yet.
After five episodes back to back, I can say it's very light and easy to sit through.
I also watched Robotech: Shadow Chronicles last week, and I liked it much more than I thought I would after the first 15 minutes. For a while, I thought I was gonna sit through 1½ hours of Star Wars clichés. Despite the horribly annoying CG mecha and poor-for-today animation (maybe it was the character design), the movie got me going. We'll see where it leads.
