IMO, Anime Unleashed had the best run of anime. ROD the TV (my personal favorite), Silent Mobius, Gungrave, Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi, Boogiepop Phantom, Gad Guard, Banner of the Stars, etc.

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

You forgot Last Exile, my fave, and Betterman as well, I have those on DVD from it, along with Abenobashi, the Soultaker, and Crest of the Stars series.

Don't think I ever got in to the others though, always time to!

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

Last Exile and Betterman were great as well. So many great shows on that channel. Lol, too bad G4 sucks now.

Re: Anime Discussion Thread

Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure was also part of Anime Unleashed. Granted,it was basically a mash together of Tenchi and Eva, but not a bad series.

Betterman was a dark horse anime for me, I expected it to be annoying, especially with the way it tried to over explain things, but it was pretty darn good.

The SoulTaker I regret not paying much attention to ('course, only realized this when I watched Nurse Witch Komugi....) I can barely remember the series, but I want to give it another try.

LOLz yuri for the english viewers? Not a chance. Also, I never seen the death of that Queen girl. re runs kept happening and gave up on the series all together. This was long ago.

I really like it, probably for the silly reason of absolutely loving the art of it, and how in many scenes, it seems to be solely the primary colors. Gets a little softcore towards the last episode though.

To be fair, they never kissed.

Never watch G4 that often, except for Ninja Warrior, so I missed Anime Unleashed. But I do remember when Syfy would show movies like Vampire Hunter D and Ninja Scroll.

My friends officially owe me five bucks, "Nobody bit you watch Ninja Warrior" my ass.

Anime Unleashed at least had the courtesy to go quietly after finishing up what they were airing. SyFy nailed us all cold turkey. I don't think they were even half way done with Star Blazers when they suddenly went "we quit! More ghost crap over anime!"

Pretty fair tbh.

I finally finished Fate/Zero. It was one hell of a ride filled with greed, betrayal, and despair. The subs were going fast and distracting me from the action. I think at the end the grail is suppose to make the winner understand something? He wanted to be a hero, but was using an evil method to doing so. Honestly, it seems like a 5th holy grail war will happen with the daughter and adopted child and some others. Good series, definitely recommendable. Thanks Urca

Glad you enjoyed it,my man.
But as far as the grail goes,the grail is evil,The Irisviel in the grail wasn't Irisviel,it was the grail's embodiment in Irisviel (to put it in a simple way,it has Irisviel's look,but it's not Irisviel,nor does it represent Irisviel's ideals.).
Kiritsugu wasn't really supposed to learn anything from the grail,the grail wanted to use him because it thought that he's Angra Manyuu (I think that's how they write it),the grail thought that he's the evil of all the world so it chose him as the winner.
Speaking of Kiritsugu,I'd like you to see the spoilers since it has what actually happened in the anime but wasn't explained in details

Spoiler for Fate Zero:
do you remember when the false embodiment of Irisviel said
'I Curse you,Emiya Kiritsugu,Angra Mainyu curses you,Lament until the day you die,I'll never forgive you'?
it wasn't animated but Kiritsugu died on the last scene because of that curse,it caused some body operations to fail and he lost his sight.
Check the second spoiler for details



Spoiler for Fate Zero:

Once Shirou was old enough, Kiritsugu left Fuyuki several times, traveling back to the old von Einzbern castle, trying to save his daughter. However, he never managed to find his way past the bounded fields, having lost most of his magecraft abilities. After his betrayal, rather than seeking to punish him, Justacheit von Einzbern never again allows Kiritsugu into their Bounded Field and keeps him away from his daughter. Kiritsugu believes that he either wishes to exile him to carry the the shameful title of traitor for the rest of his life, or to impose the most severe punishment that can be inflicted by never allowing him to see his daughter again.



To ensure the destruction of the Great Grail, Kiritsugu used explosives to create a 'bump' in the nearby leyline, which would ensure a earthquake in thirty to forty years' time. By doing so he hoped to prevent a fifth war, but did not realize that the incomplete ending of the fourth war would cause the next war to occur in just ten years.

Angra Mainyu's curse eventually cost his life, as his limbs were lame, his sight failed, and most of his circuits became useless.

Kiritsugu's final moments

His last moments were with Shirou, watching the moon outside his garden. This will be Kiritsugu happiest memory and he also reaccount his life noting that it's full of regrets especially his inability to save his daughter.
He revealed his childhood dream to Shirou about becoming an 'hero of Justice' and that it became impossible as he became an adult. Shirou who looked up to Kiritsugu hated the way he spoke of his weakness but reassure Kiritsugu that he can accomplish it as he is still a child. Kiritsugu in his mind wanted to tell Shirou that it is fruitless dream but he couldn't say it when he sees Shirou was enthusiastic about it.
He dies peacefully as he vaguely stares at the moon and commented how beautiful it is. He died at the age of thirty-four, five years after the end of the War, passing onto Shirou his ideal of a 'hero of justice'. His last thoughts was when Shirley ask what kind of adult he wants to and he said:

"I’ll never forget what I felt today. I want to be a hero of justice!"

He is buried in the graveyard behind Ryuudouji, though Shirou rarely visits.



As far as the war after Fate/Zero happens,it was animated in 2005 IIRC,but I advise you not to watch it since a lot of people didn't like it (I liked it,personally,but a lot of people didn't because the story wasn't as deep as Fate/Zero),if you're interested,it's called Fate/Stay Night.

BTW Swagger,what do you think of the fight
Spoiler for Fate Zero Episode 24:

Between Kiritsugu and Kirei?
