Hail fellow well met?

Gah, forgot to post the pictures. x_x The reason is that my Emma Season 1 boxset and the remaining Hikaru no Go DVDs (that I bought in that Viz Rightstuf sale) all came in yesterday, and together with the Gurren Lagann DVD and the anime I missed while I was in Japan, I suddenly have a TON of stuff to watch.

Just finished the GL DVD subs. Overall, the translation is great and better than the fansubs (Order was one of the better groups, but they still made a lot of mistakes). I'm also fond of the DVD menu. A minor annoyance is that they ignore the "Tengen Toppa" part of the title even in the fansubs.

Gurren-dan is now "Team Gurren" (Dai-Gurren-dan is "Team Dai-Gurren," though they don't explain what the "dai" means). Kick reason to the curb blah blah = "Reject common sense to make the impossible possible!" (Which is better than "crazy guns.") Simon calls Kamina "Bro," Kamina calls Simon "blood brother." ♥ Kamina's speeches are fantastic, though a few times I think the word choice is a bit too intelligent for him. The translation is faithful to Nia's formal style of speech. Gokigenyou = "Hail fellow well met!" I barely understand what that means. XD And I'm still giggling over "Who are you, good sir?"

And I have to say, seeing this on my TV with no ghosting and the volume cranked up was amazing. I love this show so much more when I watch it alone. Episode 6 made me crack up this time, maybe because of the translation. Oh Kamina, you idiot. ♥ Can't wait to see this dubbed. ♥

The Emma boxset is also beautiful and amazing. It's going to take me a while to finishing reading the Victorian Gazette. Mom and I have started watching it together, since it's been a few years since she's seen the first season. I want to rewatch Hikaru no Go with her too after this. Major nostalgia. *__*
