This show also known as: PFWAH, SNAKES!

Princess Resurrection is stupid and lame, BUT… well, no it still is.

Music Selection: Let’s be honest: most of the credit goes for actually talking about Lovecraft, which I don’t think a single other entry did. Bonus points for “Lovecraftian”

This show is about:


Invisible Men

  • Japanese half were-wolf… would that be “WeWo?” – hey, you guys should watch some good anime for a change, like Future Boy Conan.

  • Princess Resurrection is 26 episodes, actually. ^_^;
    So from what you say on the podcast at 9:22, you’ve only seen about half the series.

    (It’s technically 25 episodes with a 26th DVD Only special.)

    I’ve seen the whole series recently, and I have to say that even though it’s a “Monster of the week” formula, I still rather enjoyed it.

    The three girls are my favorite characters, the main guy is a wuss and so annoying. >_<

    Sucks to hear that the older eps after jan 6th 07 are down, I’ve been listening to them since the beginning.

    I’m not that far yet though. ^^;
    I listened to may 20th 06 just before this one.

    I found it funny that Joel said that Bluray wasn’t going to go anywhere (or something like that) and 3 years later it pretty much won the war, lol. XD;

  • 21:00; Hime’s name is actually Hime. Not Princess. XD
    So in Japanese, Hime-sama = Mistress Hime.

    So she’s Princess Hime. If that makes sense. (I know it doesn’t lol)

    Also, the monster of the week formula lasts to about episode 18 or 19 or something like that, and the ‘plot’ is crammed into the last 7 episodes or so.

    I hate when an anime does that. >_>

  • Suto

    Bluray is the Pony Express.

  • Dave

    I feel like I say this every time it’s brought up, but in my defense, Bluray is pretty much the first alternate format by Sony that actually DID work. UMD, Minidisc, Betamax. They did not have a good track record.

    And, honestly, while I’m down with Bluray, I think that format war is more about being less of a loser than being an actual winner.

  • Onomarchus

    Bluray’s competition isn’t HD-DVD, it’s DVD. How many things have you heard of being released on Bluray but not on DVD?

  • John

    @VickyvonKarma:

    I’m not familiar with the show but I would point out that the word for princess can be attached to the suffix -sama; that combination is an antiquated way of addressing princesses. The logic is that Hime is only the title, -sama indicates the politeness. The Wikipedia entry (here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Princess_Resurrection) also seems to contradict what you said. The only name I can think of with Hime is Himeko. You sure about her name being Hime?

  • VZ

    It’s sub only because ADV isn’t doing dubs anymore on their new release, which are now under their “Sentai” line.

  • Dave

    This is terrible news.

    But it also explains Clannad.

    Whatever keeps the benjies flowing.

  • @John – Ah, so I guess I was wrong then. It was just my opinion though, so it’s all good. I can admit when I’m wrong, haha.

    Anyway. I’ve never watched 24 before, but after hearing so much hilarious antics over the years of the podcast, I think I’m going to check it out to see if I like it.

  • AH!! That’s right! It was mentioned in the show also.
    Hime’s real name is Lilianne. So I guess she does call herself Princess, heh. (God I wish comments could be edited. I really hate double posting.)
