Maybe Peter Chung also has pics of CN execs with donkeys. I have no idea how this hack continues to find work. Pity, I reckon.

Considering "Reign" almost immediately got buried in the 1:30 slot, I doubt it has many fans, and this after being promoted out the wazoo and so many glowing reviews doing the usual "If you don't get this cartoon you're some bullshit weenie who doesn't know Real Art," reviews should tell you just how big a splash it made. *L*

I feel your pain obout the wait for more dog-boy. I've grown to like InuYasha after all and waiting for new episodes (Given they stopped the run just after introducing Koga--not *exactly* good pacing there)until August is a bit of a bite. Still we get new Inuyashas and the Big O's 2nd season, so it's not like it'll be an entirely worthless wait.

This may just be a matter of taste, but why does everyone seem to hate Kikaider so much? I like the Astro Boy art, the fights, and even the cliched story. It's just fun.

Well as someone who's seen the original Kikaider & its sequel series (The live-action shows) it takes everything that was *good* (The action) and sucks it out of the show.

I also hate the CONSTANT hammering home that "Jiro's a PUPPET! He's not a REAL HUMAN! LOOK! PINNOCHIO!"

Thank you, I got it in the first episode, please shut up about it.

Didn't like it in AI, don't like it here.

I also don't like that entire episodes drag on with nothing happening, like tonight's with that retarded Dracula-android. The original show was pretty action-packed (God bless you Sonny Chiba)and managed to not be annoying despite the presence of plenty of Kennys (Kenny=fat Japanese kid in white shorts)

But my biggest objection is. . .there's no reason for this BE on Adult Swim. If anything "Cyborg 009" should be on Adult Swim (as it's relentlessly dark and depressing) and Kikaider should be on Toonami.

And Reign shouldn't be on at all. :)

I always found the best part of the live action was the hilariously over zealous subtitles.
"This evil you are doing is what I shall be bringing an end to!"

At this point it's a given that everyone hates Reign.

EDIT~! I spell like an idiot, and now there's a quote to prove it.

I'm also a fan of the extremely literal dubbing such as: "I WILL CRUSH YOU TO PIECES!"
Well, obviously.

I like to think of it as one of those things that brings us closer together as human beings. :)

I was watching it, too, and I thought it lost a lot of appeal with the extra cash. Paige wore a sleeveless t-shirt and her trademark tight jeans. I've never enjoyes Laurie and Doug; I hoped it would be Genavive (sp?) and either Vern or Frank.
