Anime

Whee

I forgot Madman's Tenth Anniversary Sale - they're selling their entire back catalogue at $10 per DVD - but fortunately (for me) their servers fell over during the stampede and they decided to extend it.

So I just picked up:

The first two-and-a-half seasons of Galaxy Angel
Days of Midori and Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi, which I loved on fansub but never got around to buying
Porco Rosso, Pom Poko (which I might already have somewhere...), Nausicaa, and a spare copy of Millennium Actress to foist upon the unwary
Kaleido Star
Burst Angel
Colorful (heh)
Uh, and something that rhymes with Mickey Mousen
Should keep me occupied for a day or three.

Mickey Mousen (ahem) isn't that bad.  Compared to Dokuro-chan, for example, it's downright brilliant.

Oh, it's no classic (like Dirty Pair Flash, say), but at the prices you're buying it for, it's perfectly acceptable.

 

(yes, I'm joking about DPF)

You didn't really buy Ikki Tousen, did you?

Actually, if I ever see a real cut-rate sale, I might pick up the rest just so I can watch them with the sound turned down. And lots of skipping to the good parts.

Or maybe not. It never actually gets ecchi, does it?

3 I'm not sure quite where the line between fanservice and ecchi lies, but I'm pretty sure Mickey Mousen crosses it.  Not hentai, but ecchi.

To achieve the vaunted heights of ecchi, you need something that rhymes with "Tipples". I didn't see any on the first DVD, which is all I bought.

5 Ah.  They do pop up in the manga, but I'm not sure what happened to them in the anime.

6 None in the anime.  Barely.  Just barely.

7 If you're fast, you can catch one in Ep. 4 of Code Geass.

8 I went slightly more overboard. I ended up with 62 DVDs. I really should catalogue all that I haven't watched ... and not by anymore.
