SPOILER ALERT - - - - - - - - - - - - Still with me? Alright then. As I eagerly await the release of the movie, which was NOT released Ausgust 30th like Scifi.com said, I had a few thoughts.
A)Does anybody think Spike may have actually survived the last episode? I give the chances, 1 in a 1,000,000,000 but it reeks of interesting possibilities. I'd like to see more, but on the other hand I'm hesitant to see them put their legacy on the line after making such a humongous impact with only 26 episodes.
B)Spike is probably dead, and that's why I think they planted hints that Faye and Jet would get together. Anybody else see these besides me?
C)And finally, I only recently started watching Adult Swim again and am REALLY impressed by Yu Yu Hakusho and Inuyasha.
D)Ok one more thing sorry, I've been watching the credits of a bunch of animated series (not just anime) and I ask you, is it legal to dub a series without a Dobson?

A) No he didn't. The movie takes place between Sessions 23 and 24. (and on another note, kudos to Columbia/Tristar for getting the dub cast from the series and for going ahead despite the bioterrorism elements in the movie) The whole point of the series was that it had a definite end, despite what Cartoon Network tried to bribe the creators into doing to continue the series.
B)It's there, but it's more a father/daughter things. Especially in sessions like "Ganymede Elegy" and "Boogie Woogie Feng Shui" he has a very protective, fatherly affection for the women in his life. And even though Faye rips him off and makes everyone crazy. . .it still holds.
C) Eh I'm more down with "Gundam 0083" and to a lesser extent, "Gundam." "Inuyasha" and "Yu Yu Hakusho" are kinda shrills, but nowhere near as terrible as the crapfest that is "Outlaw Star," now wisely buried at the ass end of the block.
A)He's gone, dead, bye-bye! B)I'm not really sure myself, but at the moment, I'm saying no...but ask me a few weeks later and I'll probably have a different opinion... C)I like everything on saturday Adult Swim. I usually miss the first two shows because of work. If I had to pick a favorite, it would probably be the two Gundam shows (Mobile Suit and 0083). Although I have to admit that I rather enjoyed Outlaw Star the first time the series played...mostly because of the Harry McDougall character though... D)I believe not

Spike is very much dead - that was the symbolism of what you see while the credits roll in Real Folk Blues 2. If you remember Jupiter Jazz 2, Gren is a shooting star because he couldn't complete his journey and couldn't find peace. Spike's star, on the other hand, simply fades out.
Of course, I'd still love to see a second series that shows Faye and Jet moving on, but Spike, Ed, and Ein made the show what it was far more often than not.
Yohko Kanno is an anime goddess. Not only was she the inspiration for Ed, it seems like damn never EVERY anime she scores is a classic. I would put her work on "Macross Plus" right alongside her work with "Bebop."
And if I could afford the "Bebop" box set with the live stuff, I would buy it in a heartbeat. There's so many different styles of music used in the series its like an instant record collection.
But among the "bebop" fans I have to ask . . .anyone else think "Theme from Jonny Quest" when the "Bebop" theme ("Tank!" I think it is) fires up?
I like Adult Swim but there is just WAY to many cartoons on there right now.
They need to either add another night or trim the schedule a bit.
Baby Blues can hit the road. It is to mainstream and lame-o for Adult Swim.

You see this? You see how my body's glowing like that? Yeah... a lot of people can't do that. Come get some of this glowing. Oh, okay, you. You want some. You want some of the glowing. Look, man... your soul... I'm going to totally floss with it and chew on your spirit. I read that somewhere. But I'll do it.
It's amazing that there is a war on terrorism, folks still starving in the world, living under oppressive dictatorships, and can't even be provided or afforded decent housing, and people can still have time to worry about stuff like this...
