Anime

Shakugan no Shana

Is pretty darn good.

I think it's licensed by Geneon, but doesn't seem to have been released yet. (A search of their sucky site reveals nothing.)

One thing I particularly like is that it's paced more like the first Slayers series than, say, Bleach. Dramatic rescues take one episode, not fifty. Plot points actually get resolved.

And like Slayers, you have a flame-haired flame-eyed super-powered chibi-chan.

Fear the kawaii!

3 Also the discs are very much worth buying (if this is the sort of series you like) even if you have fansubs. This seems to be very difficult material to translate and the DVD subtitles do a much better job, in my opinion.

On the other hand in the English dub they alter the text to sound more "natural", meaning "more American". Typical.

4 If one likes a show that you have on fansubs, you should ALWAYS get the series on 'official' DVDs... leastwise, that's my take on it (though I tend to wait until the entire show is available).

5 Agreed.

6 Quite right--but even someone who is less ethical would be a fool not to get the DVDs in this case.
