That part I said yesterday about that being the only season where there were no TV series. Turns out I was just a bit off and that I had a whole six month block in this decade where I did not have a TV series covered. Just 2 items today to wrap up the year 2000, though that number is probably pushing it a little.
Yes it’s more Love Hina in today’s debatable item for inclusion. The so-called 25th episode of the TV series was never aired with the rest of the series, but it would have been in the time frame of this season. It’s a pretty pointless episode made just to give Motoko some more screen time. Yeah, that’s pretty much it for that.
The other item is the Ah! My Goddess movie. I have to admit it is a wonderful looking movie and the music and sound are top notch. However, I think they hide some fundamental weaknesses in the plot, which is mostly just a generic amnesia plot. Okay for a series, but not a movie. I found it a good way to kill a couple of hours, but completely forgettable over the long haul.
Highlights from Unseen or Unfinished Items
Though not really highly rated at all, Triangle Heart – Sweet Songs Forever provides the world in which Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha exists. Vandread has a seemingly improbable civil war between genders involving mecha. That sounds familiar in a way. Hajime no Ippo is probably a classic by most standards by now, but are there any boxing series about a boxer on the down slope of his career? InuYasha has a final season airing now, but the original airing eventually wore me down to the point where I could no longer watch.
