“Boy meets girl.”

Vandread

Oh man, the first episode of Vandread always manages to make me laugh. The timing and quality of the jokes are really awesome.

Duero’s “I’m a doctor. *evilgrin*” is just god damn funny. Just realized he was one of Tomokazu Sugita’s earlier roles, heh. I must’ve been blind when I checked the cast list.

And B.C. Oh B.C. I really… oh well, can’t change the fact already.

Aii~ instead of Kiddy Grade II, Gonzo could’ve considered a sequel to Vandread. But then and again, they’ve really degraded a lot since their days doing Vandread. I still remember the time where Gonzo was given near KyoAni-levels respect as a studio, heh.

    It’s always easier to like nostalgia rather than the present.

    No, they certainly don’t make Vandread as they use to because they don’t. ;P

    While I think it’s nice to look at the past as something that was nice, we shouldn’t start talking about the past as better than the present in broad terms. Gonzo? Definetly. Everything? Don’t count on it.

    This might sound like a rather odd thing to say but believe me- these discussions usually end up there.

    I knew that something was fishy with BC right from the start. I didn’t know what, obviously. Unfortunately, my notes for it did not survive, but I remember writing it down.

    My first exposition to Sugita was back in Kawajiri’s “X-TV” series, he was Subaru.

    We’re showing our age are we? *sigh*

    Those were good times, before the masses came in.

    Whoa, Duero was voiced by Sugita? NO WAI

    Of course, I was what, 14 or something when I watched it, so I never cared for voice actors.

    I still have the VCDs I bought. Though they were really fansubs that were burnt onto discs and sold as original anime. Malaysia Boleh!

    Now I’m waiting patiently for Vandread the 3rd Stage.

    GONZO, hurry up and made the third season.

    Duero is not voiced by Tomokazu Sugita… apparently its some guy called Hideki Tasaka…
    I checked out the Wikipedia page of Vandread and ANN for this info…
