So, we are trying to make room for things in the West household. This involves getting rid of rather a lot of other things. I was downstairs making dinner and my husband was upstairs, inspecting the bookshelves (there are bookshelves in all of the rooms of the house except the kitchen).

He just came downstairs, and asked if I needed the Japanese language Kenshin (I don't, although I told him to hold on to the French versions until the kids are done with French in school). Then he asked about one or two others (all not needed) and last:

"What about the other Japanese ones?"

"Which ones?"

"The ones with the short, obnoxious girl."

I know! and it turned out she wasn't even raped either! but you're right she did redeem herself at the end.

I thought I was the only one who wanted her to get with Hotohori a little bit! lol
the saddest part in the whole series was when he died :( i cried. (i'm a wimp lol)

Me, I'm a Tasuki fan. Of all the Seishi, he was the one I loved the most. But I have an intense weakness for grouchy loud-mouthed male characters.

Hotohori, Nuriko, and Tasuki were indeed my favorites. :0 Argh, I hated it in one of the OAVs where he was going to rape her, though (even if it turned out to not be his fault). I was like, TASUKIII. NO.

I remember reading a note Watase had written at the back of one of her manga (I forget which). She said she'd gone to a convention, and everyone was like, "Tamahome x Tasuki!" and she was like, "Yeah!" And then she said that inside she was really going, "Tamahome x Nakago!" and didn't want to say it for fear of the response she'd get.

XD Man, she loves Nakago.

You know who creeped me out? Especially with his laugh. Tomo! @__@;; And why did all the Seiyru boys get to be so pretty, yet, like, half of the opposing team there was either creepy/hideous. (I was in love with Suboshi, though, for a bit. :D;; THE TRAGIC TWIN. I wanted him and Yui to get together, ahahaha, talk about a toxic relationship).

OMG. Sorry about the FY ramble. XD

I have actually never seen the OAVs for exactly this reason. I refuse to let my enjoyment of Tasuki be tainted by the events of the OAVs. ;)

On the other hand, I loooOOoooved the little omake where both teams go up to the onsen and have to dress up as women. Especially the bit in the back of the bus where Tamahome and Miaka just sit there staring into each others' eyes, saying each others' names. Hilarity.

I've been itchin' to watch Escaflowne again. I originally watched it back in the days when there were no DVDs, and hence, no DVD extras. They apparently have some extras that were shown in Japan, but obviously not included on the VHS tapes.. Maaya Sakamoto and Tomokazu Seki came out to Anime Expo back in '05, at the panels for both of them they were asked about Cafe Escaflowne and both were embarrassed about it and so now I'm DYING to see what that is, neither the questions nor the answers were terribly revealing if you hadn't already seen whatever it was they were talking about.

The movie is *terrible*. I love the original series but could barely watch the movie. I find this to be the case with a lot of series where there was a movie made about it later. Utena also, although I'll grant you the series itself became almost unwatchable towards the end there too, so the movie could not help but be completely weird when built on the back of so much weirdness to start with. In the case where the movie or OAVs were first and the series came second, it's not so bad. For all that I prefer the Vampire Princess Miyu series to the OAVs, they at least weren't so weird as to be unwatchable.
