"Be-bop"-a-loo-pa

Subject: Noir
Daaaaaaang.....

The "Cowboy Bebop" remix disc 6 just showed up today, so I watched it just now to finish it up. I rented it just over a year ago, and have been anxiously awaiting the chance to revisit it. Last weekend I got to see disc 5 again, so having disc 6 so soon was quite the bonus! *grin*

There's so much going on that it's hard for me to actually figure out how to expound upon it; especially this late at night (and especially after this many brewskis... *cough*). All I can really say is that it's very impressive all-around.

Tear-jerkingly emotional, action-packed, exceedingly witty, and tremendously well-animated, with a fantastic quality soundtrack, and an attention-to-detail that is unrivaled. Yet it's still not my favorite series; heck, it's only #3... (yes, "Kino's Journey" has definitely fallen from that perch as of now)

At any rate, this will be another series that I will gladly double-dip when it comes time for a cleaned-up video release. I kind of doubt there'll be an HD release, as there are a lot of digital effects going on that would be difficult to upgrade seamlessly, but should there ever be, well... I'm there. If "Noir" comes out on one format, but "Bebop" is released on another (HD-DVD vs. Blu-Ray) -- well, I guess I'll have to buy both. *sigh*

Anyway, more about the other stuff I've watched recently later. Not much to say about them.

Oh, and I bought a car today. More about that later after I pick it up, just to make sure I don't jinx it like the last time... *ahem*
