Ah, Guchuko's great chestnut chase. I saw frame grabs from that episode and the chase scene looked like it was wonderful.
But the picture of two kids face down in the snow surrounded by blood bothered me a bit. Please, tell me that Guchuko didn't kill them.
Itty bitty legs notwithstanding, it looks as if Guchuko is extremely strong. How else could she move so fast, let alone bouncing up to the tops of houses? How else could she haul the carcass of a cow into Kyo's yard to leave it as a gift?
One time I compared Guchuko to a feral cat. I'm beginning to get the impression that's a lot more accurate than I had realized. She really does seem to like Kyo, but she's not ready to become domesticated.
And the doughnut-and-weighted-basket trap Kyo's mother set had me giggling for a long time. Even if Guchuko had gotten trapped inside it, she'd have shredded that basket with her axe. (And then taped it all back together again.)
Strictly speaking, it's not anime. It's called Winx Club and it comes from Italy.

Small bug alert: text which is part of an a-href doesn't show up in the side bar at all. Getting rid of the link is probably a good idea, but if the text itself is removed the result can be gibberish.
Don't know when I'm going to get back to the fansubbing, but in the meantime, here's some Kei and Yuri for you.

Not entirely work-safe. But it's Go Nagai, so duh.

The conversion worked out better than I thought - I'll try some lower bit rates and see how they go. The result looks a bit icky at 1280x720, but Flash-in-a-browser is hardly the ideal delivery vehicle for HDTV anyway.

At least when Pokemon did it, they knew it was a joke.
