Jyu-Oh-Sei - Planet of the Beast King

Fairly mediocre short series. Some of it worked for me, but a lot didn't. Too much of it was underdeveloped. I think the ideas have potential, though, if only the writing had been better. Still, it wasn't as crappy as the first episode of Desert Punk, which was recommended to me by a coworker. I'm not sure if I'll try any more episodes from that series.

So ďDesert PunkĒ is sucking? To bad I just started trying to collect it. Iíve passed it by for a long time just not getting a good vibe from it but Iím having to reach farther down the barrel of what Netflix has to offer.

I only tried the first episode. Maybe it's simply a rough start but gets better. I'm debating with myself on whether to give it the benefit of the doubt. smile

The first two episodes of Monster, another anime show. It has my interest. I definitely want to see how the story unfolds.

The first two episodes of Louie with Louis C.K. were entertaining. I look forward to more. Tomorrow I need to catch up and watch the first two episodes of the new season of Futurama.

Don't know if anyone has posted this or not. I didn't want to have to read 214 pages. If you haven't had a chance to watch the new Battlestar Galactica that was on SYFY you NEED to watch it. I rented the first disk on netflix just to see if I would like it. Then I liked it so much I immediately bought the entire complete set on bluray. I absolutely thought it was the best show I have ever seen. Now I am watching it again.

I just finished watching Noein a 24 episode on 5 disks anime. I almost started a review yesterday at the halfway point because I was so impressed by it, but good thing I didnít because in the second half it tanked.

Visually this is a pretty good looking anime but not the best. Characters are distinctive looking and the overall visuals are good. Sometimes the CGI is a bit overdone in relation to the cell animation so it doesnít always look quite right. Some of the backgrounds are lifted from a real town and done up using CGI while other scenes are strictly cell animation. The net effect is a bit disjointed. It is a 1.78:1 image so itís nice and full looking.

The audio is ok for a 5.1. Not much use of the LFE or surround channels except to use the surrounds for background music which is quite effective early on but becomes overbearing later.

As for the story it completely schizophrenic. The first half is one of the best set of episodes Iíve seen save an annoying character Yuu who whines his way through most of the story. At exactly the halfway point there is a filler episode with some meaningless back-story and itís all down hill from there. The story descends into meaningless techno-babble and alternate dimensions basically allowing for any ending they wish to serve up at the last minute.

I would rate the first half of this anime 4.5/5 (the whinny kid loses half a point) and the second half a 1/5 (and that might be generous). Overall Iíd call it about a 2/5 and wouldnít recommend it since last half is so meaningless.

The first episode of the new season of Futurama was funny. I fell asleep when watching the second episode, though. I was too tired. And now I go to sleep for real.
