After spending time at an amime con and watching one series all the way through, I’m not kind of into it.
Yesterday I finished the “Neon Genesis Evangelion” disk I had from NetFlix and wanted more. I’d Tivo subscribed to an Anime show called Full Metal Alchemy, but it hadn’t recorded anything yet. So after the family ate dinner we stopped by Blockbuster and I went looking.
I didn’t really know what to get, but there had been a funny snippet shown at the con of some kind of all girls school where the girls had super powers. The scene was of a girl yelling at a “kiddie” who had gotten off the train at the wrong stop. This went on for awhile. Then the girls went to class and they were going to have a new teacher. Of course it turned out to be the “kiddie”. I wanted to see the rest of the show, but didn’t know the name of the show.
I ended up renting Real Bout Highschool, which is about a private school where they settle arguments in a “K-fight”. The main character is Samurai Girl a kendo expert in a school girl skirt that show her panties everytime she fights. Those wacky japanese. While the show wasn’t that great, it was interesting and you do what to know what happens next and what the answer to the mysteries are. So I’ve added it to my que.
I also put Trigun at the top of my que. The main character of this series – Vash – is a very popular cosplay character. I show at least two Vash’s Saturday. And he carries a big cross around and I want to know what is up with that.
It is also interesting to see Christianity in Anime. Its there, so far I haven’t figured out how it fits in.
