MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I fixed it! I just changed it to a Mastercard then immediately switched it back and voila! Needless 1 and 2 are downloading now!


#7

I need to remember what my iTunes pass and user is so I can download it . Probably need to update the credit card info while I’m at it.


#8

Just watched the dub of the first episode and really liked it. The voices for Blade and Eve were perfect.


#9

If I’m not mistaken, and without looking them up, they’re the same VA’s that did Akio Furukawa and Ryou Fujibayashi from Clannad, am I right?


#10

You are correct and have good ears.


#11

What can I say? I’ve seen Clannad so many times now, I’d know them by heart. Andrew Love’s voice is unmistakeable, and as soon as I heard Eve’s “Simian? What?!” I instantly recognized Ryou’s “What?!” It’s almost identical. :laugh:

EDIT - Although I’m not so good with the female VA/male character parts. Never would’ve expected Nagisa to become a little boy! :stuck_out_tongue:


#12

Anyone else notice in the first scene the numbers ‘666’ above the door? The black ‘Mercedes’ (hood ornament is different) limo? Dead givaway these are some evil bastards! :laugh:

Now that I’ve looked, I missed quite a few of the Clannad cast! I must be losing my edge. :S


#13

:angry: I just seen the 1st episode on my AOD, Hated It! The dub was good, the illustration was fantastic, but the characters are 1 demenional(yeah I spelled it wrong), but the characters have no depth, soul, or make you care. This premise is done better in Scarred or Scabbed :S. Here is another I will not be watching. Also what is the deal with bring back all those two-years-ago anime: Princess Pretty Luice, The Best Student Council, and NurseWitch Komugi???


#14

This show is Needless as these One dimenional characters(gotta learn to spell the d-word). The priest laughs too much, is not against kicking or hitting a girl, then spouts about righteous justice, how looking in the mirror, okay. Most of all these people are way too thin.

My take is Men buy Blu-ray and Women buy DVD. :laugh:


#16

No, fair! I don’t have blu-ray. Why do they get the better cover? :frowning:

I was just going to say the opposite…


#18

This is where reversible covers are a great idea.


#19

May I ask, what the heck do the ending credits have to do with the show?

…Nothing…

…and Everything!

You find out in a few episodes they’re fairly important characters that show up frequently. Though the nature of the closing credits pretty much has nothing to do with the story. Haha. I asked around the office for a bit to see if this was a real closer, or one that somehow got accidentally put at the end of the shows.
