The 2 SAC series are so good, even when dubbed by a half-drunken porncast (the condition of the series on my first contact with it), it is still brilliant. So smart and not posing.
Well, since it has been months, we have watched Samurai Champloo here. Talking about posing: what a flat, uninteresting, and obviously proud of itself series. Absolutely disliked everything about it.
We then proceeded to watch Bokudakegainaimachi/Erased, but it wasn’t the time in our life to watch it, especially for my wife, so we have interrupted it quickly. Sorry, @Rock8man, but we will back to it someday!
We have since started and almost finished the marathon of watching the (currently available) 110-something episodes of Jojos’
Wacky Bizarre Adventures.
What a joy. The show is so stupid, yet so brilliant in its renunciation to go with any logical explanation. It’s pure 70s manga action, with the dialogue and talk of crazed overexcited adults. I had never read a single page of the manga; I now totally understand why it is so beloved. I can’t get some episode’s first lines of dialogue out of my head, some police agent calling on one of the protagonists out of nowhere, roughly to the following effect: “Hey! You! Yeah you! Fuck off!”. Just awesome :D
The openings are also sights, creating a sort of narrative within the series.
I am just a little chuckling kid again. Wonderful series. I am already sad we are almost done. I am happy to know they have probably enough material for 3 other seasons.
