Sounds interesting. I wonder what role it would have suggested for me…

I actually did a career test. The result was politician or lawyer. But I ended up as a computer engineer. I think I am too blunt an honest to be a politician or lawyer.


#3

This looks like it would be good, I am going to check it out.

Edit: yup just watched the trailer, i’m watching this. :side:


#4

This looks awesome. Just what I need in anime right now.
Slick

PS Why does it say that “anime” is spelled wrong when I type? I know it should be animation, but come on. Just something I’ve been wondering. Is it an AN thing, or is it an Opera browser thing?


#5

To be honest Spring 2010 looks bad for anime, I mean I may pick up one show so maybe if I can actually get the player to work I will do this one.

Just two question, does Section 23 have DVD rights and is this region restricted?


#6

The trailer for this looks pretty interesting, and it’s exciting to see TAN joining the simulcast game! I will definitely be checking it out.

I do imagine it will be region locked, as they only mentioned North American listings, but it’s hard to tell. As for DVD rights, I guess time will tell. I imagine it will be like Funi’s streaming, where only certain shows are picked up. However, this does seem like the type of show that Sentai and Section 23 would be likely to pursue.

Also Slick, it’s probably an Opera thing. Anime also comes up a misspelled for me on other sites in Safari and Firefox.


#7

That is strange isnt it? I would assume that anime is a pretty common word in teh english language by now…O_o

Anyway if anyone else is interested, the trailer is now posted in my article post

No, it’s a Windows thing. It’s a spell check built into Windows that does it. I have the same issue with Firefox-or I had. I just added “anime” to the dictionary and now it recognizes anime when I type it, but does not give it as a correction when it is misspelled.

I don’t think it’s a Windows thing, because I have Windows and I don’t have that problem. I DO have IE8. (shut up)

Anyway, it never tells me that I have spelled ‘anime’ incorrectly.

From the description:

SOLD! I think this is definitely up my aisle! :slight_smile:


#11

Trailer looked good and show sounds interesting. I will definitely watch! :cheer:


#12

I’ll definitely be giving this show a try, as the premise does make me laugh a bit. It should be good fun.


#13

Look, it’s Bible Black: The High School Years.

Woohoo!!! :woohoo: I’m there…

…such pretty uniforms…and his abs of steel… :blush:


#14

I can’t wait to see this show. I am curious as to this trend, dealing with schools of magic. I hope to see some good stuff.


#15

I need a new translator… I put the Japanese title into the one I have and it came out as: “Most Large Devil of Rear” :whistle:


#16

HA! Now that’s an English title there!


#17

So, what is the title supposed to be? I got “Behind most of the Great Satan” :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:


#18

Haha, we were discussing this exact thing today. So far we have a couple of names that sound good, and a couple that sound pornographic in nature!


#19

:laugh: :laugh: I’d like to hear some of those!

It almost looks like a funny way of saying “Get thee behind me Satan”.


#20

Using my limited knowledge of Japanese, I think the title is best translated as “Behind the Demon King”. :stuck_out_tongue:
