Now that I'm awake though (two+ hours before I need to be, oh boy oh boy), I think I'll be able to get this second volume done so I can start on the next one tomorrow. I think the next one is easier than the other two, so yaaaay.
But enough whining! While working on price signs for Open House yesterday, I was able to watch most of the first ep of Gurren Lagann. Pretty sweet, I'm very excited to see more. I also took the time (at 10pm, lol) to watch Oh Edo Rocket with Jenn and Nur. I have no idea why no subbing group has jumped on this. We don't need 20 groups doing Darker Than Black, guys! (Oooh, that's a fun one too though) Ahhh, I know I should just be happy people take their time to sub episodes at all, but I am disappointed that no one seems to be working on this one yet!
So, we have awesome-looking demons.... fighting each other.
Norio as a ninja (the one in the middle).
She. Is. So. Cute. She's watching fireworks here.
I suspect everyone may been a tiny bit gay.
I think this series might actually Okami animated. I love the bkgs.
I love these character designs.
Like I said, everyone may be just a tiny bit gay.
Looove the character designs. Everyone looks so different! So much better than trying to watch Heroic Age and having everyone look the same (except Age/Eiji. THANK GOODNESS. I am enjoying what I've managed to catch of Heroic Age though).
Basic story seems to follow a group of residents in an Edo row house... who all have really strange jobs (locksmith, rental shop, firework wick maker...). The main character is Seikichi is a firework engineer. He meets a girl who claims to have come from the moon and becomes obsessed with making a rocket to go to the stars. I think this is the basic story... I'm not sure where the ninjas and demons fit in though. There were lots of big name seiyuu in it too... hot stuff I tell you, hot stuff. I'm dl'ing ep 2 now~!
Okay, break time is over! Back to work.
EDIT, 08/18/07: LMAO, Now that I've seen the subbed version, I realize I was sooooo wrong with this summary. LMAO. SO WRONG. That is all.
