    tony - at the very least tape a few episodes off of tcn and show your dad those. at least that way he'll get a good vibe for what the show is about.

    Ted, good idea. However, if he does not like it, chances are that he may not help me out. I think I might have to tape some episodes.

    By the way, concerning the proposed novice anime discussion thread, I was thinking that we should create an official HTF anime FAQ. I have some of the items written out. I think it would be very helpful and informative to newcomers. However, I would need help and suggestions from all of you guys. I could host it on my webspace. What do you think?

    Faqs are always good, I'd support one.

    Hmmm...seems like the Novice Anime discussion thread has taken some of the air out of this one...

    It's like the new baby brother, the parents will get over the novelty of it soon enough and start dividing their attentions again [​IMG]

    It'll be interesting to see what happens to the new thread.
    Hmm... no new releases for me this week. Ugh, March is going to be a KILLER though (RahXephon + box + shirt, Chobits + box + stationary kit, X:FOUR, GTO 7, and one other thing I cant remember) [​IMG]
    I am really mad right now, FYE cancelled my Fruits Basket 2 that I got in the 20% off sale. Hmm, might just wait for the box for the rest of the episodes... @ $25+ per disc, I would rather just buy the rest in 1 shot and save some money (plus get a box [​IMG] ).
    Say, anyone else going to Mega-Con in Orlando, Florida this weekend? Biggest anime/comic convention in Florida (Lurkers? You know who you are [​IMG] )... I'd love to see some of ya there. I will be there late Friday, most of Saturday and Sunday.
    Of course, it's all small potatoes compared to what Otakon 2003 is going to be [​IMG]

    Rob Lutter:
    I myself am eagerly awaiting FLCL: Volume 2 to arrive in the mail next week. All the reviews I've read, professional or otherwise have deemed it superior in both content and presentation.
    I'd love to get my hands on Fruits Basket but at it's current price point, I'll be waiting for a cheaper box set to come around thankyouverymuch. Ditto for Crest of the Stars
    I'm very much looking forward to Ninja Scroll: Tenth Anniversary Edition which will be coming out later this year...promises to have some nice stuff on it.
    Have fun at your Convention

    Brendan, I am also going to pick up Furi Kuri (Fooly Cooly, FLCL... whatever they are calling it this week [​IMG] )... but I am going to wait for a boxset (too many titles right now... 2 of which are already GAINAX).

    Yeah, I noticed how much the Novice thread has taken off. *heh*
    It least helps to keep the redundancy from this thread, but it does slow this thread down a lot.
    Anyway, watched up to episode #20 for Naruto this weekend. Fun fun series. [​IMG] And it looks like we also begin a new arc for the series starting at #20.
    Anyone watching Princess Tutu (from the creators of "Magic Users Club" aka "mahoutsukaitai")? Our club just watched the first episode. We don't know what to make of it. I like it but I have to watch more. It's pretty addictive.

    any 20 page thread with the word "advanced" in it is not for the faint of heart. [​IMG]

    Well, you could think about it this way... if more people get into anime because of the Novice thread, than in a couple years this thread is going to be ROCKIN'!
    Say, Kong, did Jeff talk you into coming to Otakon yet? [​IMG]

    Any news on whether the Ninja Scroll 10th anniversary edition will be full-screen or wide-screen?
    Rob:
    March has got me for GTO volume 7, Betterman volume 5, and Genesis Climber Mospaeda at the very least. I'll probably end up getting Dai-Guard vols. 3 & 4 too.
    John.

    Rob:
    Nope, because he wouldn't tell me who the musical guest of honor will be, not until at least mid-March. So, until then, I'm just staying over here in California. If the music guest is good, I *might* just attend.
    JohnAD:
    Dai-Guard, are you liking this series? Ditto with Betterman?

    Jeff keeps telling me something like "Kong IS coming once he hears about the musical guest"... so I guess it's gonna be good [​IMG]
    If you need someone to split the room with after Jeff's secret is revealed, I still don't have anyone staying with me (I got a double at the Holiday Inn across the street). [​IMG]

    It's currently being discussed on the R1 board of the www.animeondvd.com forums. Manga's CEO Keith Burgess is posting about it. I get the impression that 4:3 IS the OAR of the film, and that in order to get an anamorphic 16:9 picture, Manga would have to 'Tilt and Scan' it. Not sure about that though.
    Et Al:
    If the "musical guest" turned out to be....Shiro Sagisu...I would find some way of attending, not likely though.

    Brendan:
    Thanks for the info.
    Kong:
    Dai-Guard is pretty funny so far (I've seen the first two disks). The fact that the robot is run by a PR department, and all that comes with it, is a bit of a twist. The story line has been pretty good so far, with some good character development. It's certainly not Gasaraki or anything, but fun.
    As for Betterman, the jury is still out on that one, IMHO. I'm going to wait to watch the whole series through a couple of times before making up my mind on it. Hopefully it will make sense by then.
    John.

    For the record, I'm not telling anyone who the guest is because it's our policy not to announce who it is until we have a signed contract in hand.
