well... for an update on stuff... been dropping series left and right hehe. running out of "good ones." a few of my pawn shop hookups have yielded decent results in tracking down some used stuff for cheap (used domestic sets for like $20, used import sets for like $10). when it's mega cheap i don't exert much discretion when buying (if it's under $10 for a series i'll pretty much buy anything) which has been pocketbook friendly but it thins out the quality of stuff being watched.
in the past couple of weeks have knocked out gunslinger girl, samurai champloo, samurai 7, saikano, and we're about 27 epi's into death note (should be done with it by the end of the week).
we really enjoyed samurai champloo and saikano. death note is good yet not that good at the same time... but it at least keeps the interest level up for the most part even if it's in a sopranos kind of way (like 1 important thing happens every 23 minutes).
have scraped on these but none have really pulled us in:
stuff on the shelf in line to be watched:
stuff on the shelf:
witch hunter robin
my gut instinct tends to hold up pretty well. watching 6000+ movies gives me a nose for that stuff
if anyone has used that they want to get rid of i'm looking to buy these:
love hina - complete series w/ sub and dub. can be import or domestic
saikano - complete series. must be a domestic release. i liked this one enough to want it for posterity. my import version has all 13 epi's on 1 disc w/ craptastic bitrate.
moon phase - complete series w/ sub and dub. can be import or domestic.
basilisk - complete series w/ sub and dub. can be import or domestic.
dot.hack roots - complete series w/ sub and dub and the sub can't be engrish. import or domestic.
