What would you change?

Ooh yes, Reboot is an excellent example of a quality kids' program that holds up for adults too. In general, I think nostalgia is the major factor in preferring older shows. Both now and in the past, there have been both good and bad serieses. If anything, I think the standard for the best shows has...

Genesis storyline (spoilers)

Yes, I was wondering about that episode. I couldn't recall whether Kirara had been incapacitated or not. Still, oxygen-poor is not the same as vacuum. But the main issue is whether he should have survived and become part of F01, not whether he could have. Does anyone else have an opinion on this?As ...

I'll let you know once I've done the first one, to get a better idea of the work involved.

What would you change?

Ok, we fast-forwarded most of episode 13, which explains why I missed the dialog in question. Yes, the duel was definitely more suitable for a kids' show than suicide would have been. I'd just have preferred a slightly different motivation behind it. Writing for kids isn't an excuse for inconsistenc...

Episode transcripts

Since there seems to be some support for the idea of writing up transcripts of the episodes, I'll try to do episode one this weekend. (Well, from the beginning to my best guess at where the first episode is supposed to end, since I'm using the edited US VCDs - someone who has the individual episodes...

What would you change?

Yes, that's a good explanation of his death as scripted in the current english version (and probably seems more reasonable from a Japanese viewpoint), but I don't think Carter ending up as a suicidal bully without the courage to kill himself directly fits at all well with the hero figure that Shiro ...

Genesis storyline (spoilers)

I agree that some recognition of Kirara would be a good thing, but I still don't think he belongs as part of F01. It conflicts with his role as bodyguard, for a start; protecting a component of F01 makes sense, but getting another component to do the job doesn't. And while he's survived handgun fire...

Genesis storyline (spoilers)

Nice work 8)A couple of comments:Kirara shouldn't be part of the F01. I see no reason to retcon his heroic death, there was no hint of him having such significance in the series, and neither Lamia nor Halley are lacking in courage.And there should be a stronger reason for the Heir's choice of Shiro,...

What would you change?

Nah, I like Makara being a villain, and while I was sad to see her killed, it was dramatically sound. And as for Lamia and Halley... well, he was pretty cute 8) But more seriously, I think Lamia knew on some subconscious level that it was her destiny, and expected and wanted it. Her not liking it wa...

Japanese-English

My theory on the relationship between Prof Hagen, Shiro, and Lamia, is that the Prof and his wife had a messy divorce shortly after Shiro's birth (possibly due to him spending too much time on the X project), and she got custody of the kid. Despite having regular visitation rights with Shiro, the Pr...
