Sure, is this the right one?

MMI was pretty cool, although all the body switching sometimes made it a bit complicated to follow. Ultimately, I thouight it was very clever, but not wholly satisfying.

Well i just spent all day yesterday watching 2nd gig don't ask wont tell /wink/

Spoiler (highlight to read):
The tachis sacrificed themselves to save everyone, they went down singing a disgustingly cute song. God belss them Crying or Very sad

I didn't like the tachikomas at first but now i have gotten used to them and i just cant hate them after what they did.

Well in 2nd gig the major wears CLOTHES! Shocked Not only that but she also has more than 3 outfits! There still is some considerable fansurvice but its not as taseless as the first season.

2nd Gig also has another form of fansurvice in the form of "hey i remember that" moments riped directly from the manga and movie. EG the major does a lot of: shooting people till their heads explode, and jumping off buildings in thumoptic camo, and the last EP contains an almost literal recreation of the first scene from the manga (joy). Does this mean that 3rd gig will be based directly from the manga? I shure hope so.


[[EDIT:][This must hold the record for most bumped topic, its like a zombie.]]

Well there probably wont be a 3rd Gig but SOLID STATE SOCIETY COMES OUT IN 2007!

Bandai is threating to sue anybody who fansubs it to increase demand when it comes out in the west but as much as a pirate i am i actually support them on there decision.

In the meantime we can watch the trailer OVER AND OVER AND OVER.

and a fanmade mash up of the first 2 seasons and the new movie (contains SPOILERS!)

WOOHOO! Thanks for the heads up! I can't wait for this. I'm glad it's based on the SAC version of events. To be honest, as gorgeous as it looked, Innocence was a bit of a dissapointment for me.


I sometimes buy the Jap DVD and then burn my own subtitles to it, but this might come out at the cinema over here so I might wait to see it then.

I much prefer the manga and show to the movies.

When you really boil it down the movies were oshi's. Yes shiro wrote the story but if you let oshi anyware near your movie it will be infected by his basset hound ness.

Despite fallowing a different stroy the show captures the feel of the manga better and deals with much more soficticateed themes.

Well, since I'll have bought the DVD, they've got my money, so I don't feel too bad about putting subs on it for my own personal enjoyment Smile

Of course, it might stop me going to the pictures to see it, AND buying it on DVD...
