I Love Your Long Shadows And Your Gunpowder Eyes

For once, I'm publishing a review while it's still relevant! FUNimation will soon be releasing the complete, two season boxset for Black Lagoon, and I weigh in whether you should check it out. This probably won't happen again for a long time, so don't get used to it.

In other news, I've been a guest not once, but twice on the Anime3000 podcast. Sean Russel hosts a bi-monthly discussion by bloggers, podcasters and anime journalists that covers a variety of issues and aspects of anime fandom. I was a guest on the Directors Not Named Miyazaki episode, along with Zac Bertschy, the editor of Anime News Network; and Daryl Surat, co-host of the Anime World Order podcast and Internet superstar. I also participated in the Being An Otaku panel, along with Benu of Anime Genesis and Courtney Kraft of G4 TV. Expect to see more of my work on Anime3000, since I'll be reviewing two season boxsets for their site and jotting down my thoughts on the new Fall season of anime.

That's enough plugging for one day, though. Join me next week when I write about one of the best comedies I've seen so far.

"Oh look, the orchestra's getting ready. Dance with me, George!"

So yeah, someone once saw fit to introduce me to a show starring ballet-dancing magical girls, which just about strikes every single "are you serious?" chord with me. The show is named Princess Tutu, and the experience turned out to be a little bit different than what I expected.

And that's another show off my list of special requests. Next week, Brad brings us something a little bit different from this, so please don't change that channel.

PIRATES IN SPAAAAAAACE!

So, we got ourselves another of my special requests, this time for the eleven year old space almost-odyssey Outlaw Star, made from back when it was alright to have actual adults as leading characters. So click that link to find out what I thought about it, and I'll see you guys next Monday for yet another of my special requests.

Bringing classy back...

Melissa once again has a review for us, this time -- as the title may imply -- something a bit more classy. In fact, not a whole many shows can compete with the kind of class you can find in Nodame Cantabile, a romantic Josei drama centered around music, so give it a look. Or, even better, lend it an ear.

Next week we got something a bit less extravagant, but still entertaining, from me. Stay with us.
