    JohnAD: Bounce Ko-gals is something I've been meaning to see, but I also want to see Hideaki Anno's Love and Pop and Shiki-Jitsu but I don't hold out much hope for either. DaveGTP: Loved El Hazard the OVA, but quite disliked the TV series, I couldn't even get through it.

    earl_roberts: My friend Hidenobu's nickname is Hide (pronounced HEE-DAY) and I'm sure he wouldn't feel very happy to know that it sounds girly ;) I would add 'Pero' to the list, if Takkun is on there, 'Pero²' should be as well.. I agree with you, more Gainax is needed, but surprisingly...

    Tony, my interest in anime waxes and wanes. Right now I'm not very interested in new things (haven't checked out fansubs for about seven months) and aside from collecting Gainax productions and the occasional impulse buy, I don't really have anything I'm looking forward to, Except Abenobashi...

    Jesse Brickzin: Aside from a few musical cues and whatnot, the only content on Death and Rebirth that isn't in End of Evangelion is the summary of the TV show using letterbox matted clips. It does come with an all-new framing device, which is a string quartet rehearsal of the Children and I...

    Where does everyone purchase DVD's

    I always order from C&L www.cnl.com. It's cheap, has the prices in Canadian dollars, lots of animé, and if I order sometime before 6pm, it always arrives at my door by 10 am the next business day.
