Quick Impressions

Subject: Noir
A few quickies, from fansub & TV:

"Starship Operators" -- I dropped it about 10 minutes in. Bunch of teenagers have to run a starship and something about needing sponsorship and whatnot. I don't care, I couldn't get into it.

"Ultimate Girls" -- I dunno why I downloaded that; it's pretty seriously immature. Duh. Curiousity sometimes gets the better of me, I guess.

"AIR" -- looks good, might be interesting, but I'm not sure it's my cup of tea. I'll try a couple of more episodes.

"Jinki: Extend" -- Young girl meets mecha, loves mecha, then some other wierd stuff happened with other characters that seemed tacked on to make you go "huh?"... Still, it had a little spark to it, I'll keep trying.

"Boogiepop Phantom" -- Cheap "Lain" ripoff. Approaches the "creep", but totally lacks the "character".

"Big O" -- OMG, it's "Batman: The Animated Series", only with giant robots! Seriously, the art style and character renderings is very very much like the recent (but not as recent as I'd like to admit) Warner Brothers TV series. It's a little cheaper in the animation quality, the lead character isn't quite as "serious" as Bruce Wayne, and the dub is kind of annoying, but it's still nostalgic enough to keep my attention for the time being.

How far are you in Big O?

I'm watching the Cartoon Network episodes. I started at 4 I think, and last saw 6 or so. The one with the piano-playing robot.

It would probably be best to watch them in order. Big O seems like a show you would enjoy. IMO Episodes 8,10, 12, and 13 were the best.
