Why should you never visit me? Apparently there's a good chance you'll back into a dumpster...
[edit - my friend asked me to remove them, so I have]
News flash, history rewriters: Gundam SEED was never good. Stop saying that Gundam SEED Destiny wasn't up to par with the original. I've seen both, and Destiny is only marginally worse.
The series began as copypasta of the original Gundam series, with it's own Newtypes, White Base, Amuro Ray, Bright Noa (split into two character), Char, Side 7, and Earth Federation. Then we move into Zeta copypasta with it's take on the drop operation on Jaburo, then back to 0079 copypasta with the execution of a Giren Zabi.
Anime I'd Like To See Licensed for Region 1 DVD/HD-DVD/Blu-Ray:
Legend of the Galactic Heroes - Sweeping epic space opera, deeply immersed in the philosophy of politics, war, and life. It's 110 episodes long, which means a long wait if it were released volume-by-volume, with three or four episodes per, but if they made season boxsets and released one or two a year, they would have it done in two to four years and it would be awesome. I suggest David Wittenburg as Yang Wen-li in the dub. David Kaye as Reinhard von Lohengramm. Extras could include models, soundtracks, booklets with linear art for ships and/or notes pertaining to the classical music used in each episode. I would guess that a company like Bandai Entertainment or AnimeEigo would pick this up. Maybe Central Park Media.
One of my favorite scenes from Zeta Gundam.
Today while romping around the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center a friend of mine noticed someone walking around taking photographs of the various aircraft exhibited. This person, looked just like a certain Michael Bay. Bay, the *famous* producer/director of such films as Transformers, Pearl Harbor, and Armageddon. He is pictured above on the set of the upcoming Alfred Hitchcock remake, The Birds, commanding them to be awesome.
So School Days is one of those anime that you watch and you think to yourself, "Haven't I seen this shit before?". And then you get to the end of the first episode and you're still thinking the same thing. You know, first impressions usually mean a lot, but when first impressions are usually ....less than stellar and that seems to be the norm for first episodes, you gotta keep with it. Usually, to get the best experience you watch the series as a whole (Usually at least if it's 12 episodes, you can trek on).
Jason Statham, star of action and, well, more action movies, will step up for Transporter 3. Statham will be returning along side Francois Berleand (the cop then cook) and joining newcomer Robert Knepper from FOX's Prison Break.
The fun action flick featuring a driver for hire is probably not going to be much of a departure from the first two flicks. Although bring in a new director, Olivier Megaton, looks to mix things up a bit. Unfortunately (or... perhaps fortunately...) I haven't seen any of his work to form an opinion and prospect this new movie.
Here's hoping for more car chases and driving action... less random 'bomb removal with a jump and crane.'
