Ive heard it compared to Gundam several times, but I personally see a huge gap between the parallel. Its much more like watching an A+E war drama documentary than Gundam. It discusses not only the formation and strategies of war, but the sociological impact of war and several philosophical references (lots of Machiavelli, hence why I love his stuff so much). And while it may just be my opinion, I think its much more of a "real-world" space drama, than a fantasy. The only anime-overexaggeration is the seemingly endless supply of stupid, STUPID pompous generals.

LoGH is still going on technically, but only in the form of Gaidens, currently. The series Im referring to the "On Golden Wings" OAV's ended around the mid nineties as far as I know.

i have only seen the side story but it was one of the ebst animes ive seen and ive been searching since otakon 2001 for just the anime to buy and watch

Youll only be able to find fansubs as far as anime goes. There is no domestic release of the series obviously. Are you referring to "Valley of White Silver" side story? I thought it was pretty bland compared to the actual series, thats just my opinion though.


Legend of Galactic Heroes (LoGH for short), has long been one of my favorite series. It is a space war/political drama that feels more unique than anything I have ever experienced on the wonderful machine known as Television. I am not exaggerating. However, I dread to claim its my favorite series, mostly because it would be ludicrous since I run a Berserk site. But seriously, if you have not seen this series, I beg you to. ( ) That is, only if you are a fan of war drama. If your favorite aspects of berserk are the number of intestines that fly out of someones body when Guts smacks them, I severely advise you to stay away, from both me and the series.

To the point: Since 1996-1997, there have only been 42 out of ~100 eps fansubbed/translated. Adding to the frustration is the fact that Episode 42 leaves you on one of the largest cliffhangers of the series. This is an atrocity. I have searched for years, high and low hoping for more translations. What is even more frustrating is the fact that there is an extremely large fan base of the series, its just that 99/100 of them dont speak japanese, and those that do, arent willing to translate. It is truly a sad state of affairs.

Ultimately what Im asking is whether or not there are some LoGH fans out there, and are familiar with the above frustration. If so, leave a message! Id love to talk with fellow LoGH fans.

what kinda magazine is it anyway i been getting the impression of it being like naked women all through it with some other stuff like berserk and other manga

The first 10 pages or so are centerfold-type bikini clad women (no nudity). Next is ads, and then from there its just straight manga. Normally, Futari Ecchi is first since its the highest ranked (dont ask). Berserk is almost always second (but I dont know how it is now, I dont get it anymore). Annd.....thats basically it. I think thers 7-8 various manga series in it. Theyre all really horrendous though. Dealing with plots such as

-"detective woman whos boobs get shown every chapter in some way or another"

-"photopgrapher during WWII who is wacky and takes pictures of naked old men"

-"people who figth at school a lot for no apparent reason"

-"gang war" (actually, this is the only other readable manga in my opinion. Its really quite good)

Thats what I had to do...

Whether or not its "worth it" is based on your level of dedication I suppose. There is uterly NOTHING other than Berserk in that magazine, unless you can get a good kick out of blatant shitty manga, like Futari Ecchi.

Actually, Jar-Jar is still in the film, he just has a lesser role. I think hes confirmed in 2 scenes and thats it. hes some high-admiral of his tribe or some bullshit now.

One reason is because Lucas didn't use crap-tastic teeny bopper actors for 4-6. Mark Hamill really had no success before or after Star Wars but he played Luke very well. I don't even think I have to mention Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Alec Guinness, or Billy Dee Williams as good adult actors. They actually gave the characters personality, especially Harrison Ford.

Well I think Lucas was just following up on the forumla of the use of "unknown" actors for the younger roles. As for the abundance of them in contrast to 4-6, I think we all know that 1-3 is a series about beginnings.

Also about the actors giving the characters personality, I think you can tie that in to the fact that there was an overabundance of CG in episode 1. The actors were acting excruciatingly short scenes against a backdrop of bluescreens. I would imagine its hard to stay in character in those situations.

The CG thing did piss me off in episode 1. Mostly in the droid vs Gungan battle (or whatever the hell that was supposed to be, it was horrendous). Nice turfgrass, Lucas.

I have high expectations for Episode 2 only because if it flops, I really think Lucas is done for.

Wow.. I wonder how this topic spun from me introducing myself to manga scans to being pleasant  ;D

Edit: As for the scanned manga, I could make an fserver in the #berserk channel so that maybe more people will go to the channel and you could download from there.. Well as soon as i remember to get the script ^^;;

Thanks, but dont worry about it.

What the fuck?Walter, that was very uncalled for. That was a thoughtful post and you could have just added a SPOILER tag. You don't seem to be too rigid about it anywhere else so I didn't think to put that. Ridiculous...

First of all, yeah it was a really cool post. I'd like to say my thoughts on this social situation as well, but I think we should wait a few days for other people to see the link first. So dont think in disregarding your opinion.

However, I specifically said "NO SPOILERS". I mean come on, since more than half the point of this video is to figure it out yourself, spoilers are much more vital. Anyway I sent you your original post in a PM so its not lost forever or anything.

Best short film (10 minutes) Ive seen in a while. Funny, dramatic, and a great angle on today's online society.

If youre below a cable, I dont think itll run very good.

Try to guess whats going on before 5 minutes are up, and you beat me.  ;D Spoilers will be deleted if posted.

Yo 420, make the most of that friendly tone. He was never this nice to me :'(

Dont get cocky. Im sure he had good reason. (and I quote: "I know I will sound like a REAL newbie after this.. but does anyone know where I can download the Berserk Manga... I am a real big fan, with no money to buy them.. I searched everywhere.. but no joy.. so I where else better then to ask amongst real fans? " and i endquote...)

I dont think anyone here pretends that this server is nuetral on opinions of people, Ive always felt that a straight shooting community is the best way to do things...

Though Ill prolly get punched in the face for saying so, I kinda wish Nissan stuck with their older design for the new Z. I really liked the BIG ASS front end of the car thats so charictaristic of Z. This design looks just like a normal balance between front and back...
