Anime on TV alert
This weekend *three* new anime series premier on Cartoon Network. Midnight Saturday (as in, the start of Sunday) is Full Metal Alchemist, followed at 00:30 by Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex. Then on Sunday night - I forget the time offhand - is Super Milk Chan... which is... hard to describe. South Park meets Ren & Stimpy by way of Japan?

Anyway, just in case you cared, there you have it.

My TiVo is ready.

I am: tired tired

Stand Alone Complex isn't worth the time. It's pretty lame.

I liked what I've seen of it before. I haven't seen the whole thing though, and it is pretty.

Personal anime preferences I guess. ;)

I've only ever seen it with subtitles, maybe it's better in English.

Well, I like it anyway.

GitS: SAC is one of the few anime in the last two years that I've found watchable. I'm not claiming it's anime of the year material, but it sure beats cutsey crap like Bottle Fairys or uninsipring stuff like Battle Programmer Shirase.

Though I tend to be a cute hater, I'm not entirely opposed to it. I've enjoyed the Full Metal Panic Fumoffu (not to be confused with plain old Full Metal Panic) that I've seen, for instance. And I love Excel Saga.

My general rule of thumb is that there are two good anime per year. I think GitS:SAC is one of them for this year. The other one? Not sure. Maybe Fumoffu, maybe Read or Die TV. But of course, YMMV.

Don't forget G4TechTV is still showing Read or Die: The TV at random times as well (hooray for wishlists!)

I have a SP to Anime Unleased, and wishlists which would catch it. Waiting for some new episodes.

Have Full Metal Alchemist and Ghost in the Shell on the SP list. Thanks for the reminder though.

Hope one of them is a good subsitute for Case Closed which seems to have disappeared.
