Yeah, I finished X a month or so ago (or more? my memory's hazy) but I didn't put together a post about it, or anything. Anyway, I agree that it's one of the better parts of the franchise, though I don't know if I'd say it's the best. The romance works (for once!), the characters are a striking bunch, the background score is amazing and I love some of the mechanical designs (especially the X Divider). It's a crying shame that it was cancellled - Wikipedia contains some speculation about Japan suffering from 'Gundam fatigue' at the time, if I recall correctly - and like you I found it hard to spot signs of rushed writing until the finale. I'll always remember the episode which didn't feature Garrod or the X at all, focusing entirely on Roybea and Witz.

Here you go. Even with Google I think it's so obscure that you have to know the name of the site before you start.

Good point about Reinhard basically starting out badass. Since he becomes less active as he gets older and travels up the command structure, I guess he has to sacrifice levels in Badass to advance in the Martial Emperor class?

I doubt there're any subbed versions, but I thought I'd better add it to the PtW just in case. Otherwise I might forget about it. Hope springs eternal . . .

Heh, I've only myself to blame as I've had the time to complete it but wound up taking it slowly. I've also failed to watch any more Ideon - probably I should have taken a harder line and isolated myself with absolutely nothing other than Ideon to watch. Well, that and V Gundam, perhaps.

Looks interesting - the biological/technological contrast reminds me of the premise for KR Agito - I've added it to the Plan to Watch list. I've been meaning to check out Junk, too, as it looks like at least some volumes are available from amazon.co.uk. Have you ever enountered Red Eyes? The premise sounds like it's either good, or at least sufficiently over-the-top to be enjoyable, but I've never actually tried it.

A race for the finish indeed, though I'll be returning to uni shortly which ought to cut down my time for marathons, too.

Good to hear that - so far I've been sustained by the constant introduction of new and exciting machines, and Final Fusion's shine has yet to wear off. The preview of the eleventh episode chimes in with what you say, as it looks like Guy and Pizza (?) are going to meet. I think up to now 3G have only really had contact with Zonders.

I see you've caught up with me on LotGH; did you intentionally turn comments off on that blog entry, or was that a mistake?
Kolokotronis Aug 31, 2008 3:35 AM
Legitimate criticisms, I suppose. The cast probably is too big and the Save The World storyline only kicks in in the second cour. I guess I just enjoy incidental detail - I find, for example, the military beaurocracy in the show interesting, just like the Abh in Crest/Banner of the Stars. I seem to recall DKellis saying something along similar lines.

StrikerS didn't manage to entertain you, then?

Read your blog and nice to see I wasn't the only one who thought those events in the anime felt familiar. Some epic things are about to happen for you and you're only about half way through.

Oh one thing, I especially love when the Rosenritters come into the scene cause all the Imperial guys are like "Shit! Roesenritters!! Run!! Too leet for us to handle!!"

They certainly are chubby.

It's a show I've been planning to watch for a while, to be honest, and when Pontifus gave it good marks I decided it was time to give it a try. I was interested in it because ufotable wrote the original manga's story, which blurs the line between original work and adaption. It's also supposed to be quietly political, which I suppose is true if you're prepared to watch it like that. And there're odd tricks like the camera in the corner of the Student Council Office in the second episode. It's fun.

I see that you're watching Blassreiter, it would be awesome if you could share your thoughts of it with me. I am thinking of picking it up, but unsure.
Hardy Aug 2, 2008 8:32 PM
I really like your blogging ;) Keep up!

I've just watched the first few episodes and I see what you mean: the bones of the show so far might be fairly normal besuited-hero stuff, but the stylings, at least, are quite accomplished. The first episode really stands out, probably because of the use of the art gallery set.

I note that in your first impressions post you mentioned Shana, and I'd go so far as to say that it's like a live action, gender-swapped Shana with older characters.
