 Today, the official website of actor Kane Kosugi issued a correction and apology, stating the actor wasn't starring in a prequel called Tekken - A Man Called X, but rather, a non-Tekken movie with the temp title Agent X. "We would like to apologize for the ineptitude on our part," stated Kosugi's official site. Not sure how his management company screwed that one up!

 

Heh, heh...

So these are like the Vol 1 Blu Ray/DVD or what? Obviously the whole series aren't available, what happens if two or three volumes are out does that list combine them?

Everything. I'm not sure if the lists include Blu Ray, I believe the bottom said it doesn't but ANY DVD sales of that series is counted.

When it first happened

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
it was pretty obvious what they were going for. (when I say obvious, I don't mean you could tell how it was going to end, I meant obvious as in, 'oh so they are going to change and pull a 180' type of obvious) It was very out of nowhere but wasn't Deus Ex Machina. I personally thought that it was a switchero and change of pace done on purpose to catch viewers least suspecting it. Lot's of anime do this, few succeed. Toradora succeeded because while it was very 'out there' in terms of change of pace, the setup and rising action to it, and how 'different' it was was done very well. The 'backup' story and characters that lead to the change of events was very strong, and the change of pace wasn't so different that it was WTF. Overall, the director knew that he had a very very strong script and characters, and that if he set up the conditions correctly, that he could achieve the results he wanted. Ultimately, it paid off.

Squealer/Yakomaru said that bakenezumi could replicate human remains from the skeletons of their taller deceased, due to the similarity. 

 

Here's my theory albeit an unpleasant one.

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Even if what he said is true doesn't mean he tells the truth and with his apparently suspicious way of talking, it probably was just a ruse.
 
Now I haven't watched SSY for a long time but I believe that later on after they find the bone remains they said that DNA traces from their remains confirmed to be Maria and Mamoru (am I right?)
 
Whatever it was, I would think that when Maria and Mamoru disappeared, the Bakenezumi kept tabs on them. A few years passes by, Maria gives birth to Mamoru's child. The Bakenezumi finds a way to put them in a compromising situation, they managed to kill Maria and Mamoru and took away their baby then to be raised by the Bakenezumi. 
 
The remains are then put in a specific place so that people from the village can find it.
 
Now this is just a theory and it might be wrong, could be that they captured Maria and Mamoru, forces them to have a child and then kills them afterwards but that doesn't make sense since they can just escape easily with their powers.

Okay, that's a good idea. That makes total sense now!

This is why the show reminded me a lot of "A Brave New World", because of the relative lack of sexual restrictions placed on people. This seems to be quite common in utopias/dystopias though, either as a right of the people (if they're not forced to) to love whoever they want whenever they want, or as a way to help subdue people (if they're forced to pick mates), because if all you're thinking about is love, you're not thinking about the crappy government. Now I'm not sure which one SSY is; it seems there are certain points when people have to "partner up" for group projects or whatever, but I'm not sure if there are deeper social implications there in that people are being "forced" to confess to the people they love or not.

And yes, as Saki presumably marrying the guy at the end of the show, or at least having a baby implies, they do acknowledge that having offspring regardless of orientation is important.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Yep, that was damn brilliant. There were many times throughout the show where I thought the bakenezumi's progression was a lot like humanity's. I never expected it though. The shift from the queen to democracy definitely parallels most of our societies shifting from monarchies to democracies, especially in the 19th and 20th centuries. And of course, firearms and gunpowder and all that stuff. I'm not sure what the girl really represents though, other than possibly the fact that more and more humans are becoming atheist?

What the... Why is that three spoilers?

HF does that now

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I think them using the human child represents not just atheisim but a break between humanity and the gods. That today in our 'world', we are doing practices and things that we supposedly either learned or were given from the Gods or were able to gain, apart from the Gods. The examples being surgery, modern medicine, airplanes etc. STuff that used to be the Gods powers, and for the Gods to decide, now in human hands.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Oooh, that's right! Good call Bowei. I guess it's like some people saying that humans nowadays are "playing god" with our technology, DNA modification, etc.

That is cruel.

Did you have to modify the T50RP connector at all to fit that Neutrik plug?

Ano Hana movie will have rare theatrical release in USA and CA

Showtimes and locations in the link above..

 

.....****/. The nearest location is 3.5 hours away from my Univ.

 

There is a location in Seattle though for you guys up there and a schiit ton in CA

Hmm, and is the blu-ray already out in Japan? They just showed Eva 3.3 here this week but frankly it felt like a slap in the face, since the BD has been out in Japan for what, six months?

You stalker you.

It was decent. It was on the constant verge of being dropped by me, but in the end I gave it the benefit of the doubt and finished it.
Had some interesting moments, but on the whole it was slightly boring and predictable.
post #101500 of 111079
Stalking is a mark of friendship right?

I guess it was predictable, but it's not like it needed to be unpredictable, it wasn't kokoro connect or anything like that you know? I commend you for sticking with it *salutes*

Yes, the Neutrik plug was just a touch bigger than the recessed hole on the T50RP. Either I can file and sand the Neutrik jack or widen the hole by using some scissors. Since I don't have a filer or sandpaper, I opt for the latter. It doesn't look good up really close but who cares.

My custom T50RP cable uses the same plug. I had to widen the hole a bit or it was a ridiculously snug fit.

Hmmm I don't like these 180° turns. Most of the time they are just....meh.
The one in Toradora included. Like you sad, it was mainly just to catch the viewers off guard. Served no purpose in my eyes.....maybe because I did not understand why it even happened....

Of course not.
That was more of a general statement.

Okay, I see. I will have to keep that in mind if I do end up getting a custom cable for my T50RP as well. I'll probably just sand down the connector since I don't wanna screw up the finish on my Mad Dogs.
