ANN Review - The Wings of Honneamise DVD - HDDVD/DVD Combo

by Theron Martin, Sep 26th 2007

Maiden Japan Press Release

This should be required viewing for any serious anime fan. The greatest anime ever made.period.


I watched and enjoyed this back in the 90’s when it was broadcast on UK tv.

You know outlander, I forgot that you are a serious anime fan as well as pirate of the forums and banking world. :laugh:

Story and review Edited.

Outlander, in the future please use quotations, only excerpts and give proper credit. You made it sound like you wrote those. After the art brouhaha last year, I’m sure you can appreciate the credit the individual person deserves and the hard work (ANN and AoD reviewers spend days/weeks writing a single review) it took for the respective writers to write those, and also as a nod to especially ANN or other industry sites, their content should remain exclusive to them. So a link to the full story/review is good etiquette.

  1. point taken, I suppose

  2. What thick-head would think I would take the time and effort to write that? If anybody took the time to look at my posts would realize that is not my manner of writing at all. I forgot to reference the material, sue me Professor.

  3. I’M the one who was scammed into buying fake art. I am more experienced and careful now.

  4. It’s an anime forum. Relax. Don’t turn into a Nazimod. It not like I plagiarized a college paper or like that. Light entertainment forums like this is not worth visiting if situations and people get too serious and bent out of shape.

Actually in the 2 biggest Anime industry forums you might have been banned or given a strong warning. Nothing of that sort was suggested. Nazimod? No one is bent out of shape, you’re simply being told what the rules are. :wink: Sites like these have more responsibilities as an industry site, vs just a fan site or 4ch where there’s no rules or in the latter, chaos.

I don’t think it’s my or your place to marginalize that though… you’re treating that as if it’s not important vs a college paper which is supposedly important. The reviewers on those sites spend more time writing those reviews than a lot of college papers - a lot of their heart, time and soul is put into it.

Second if ANN or those other professional sites found out about this and realized we didn’t do anything about it, it could cause professional issues that happen behind the scenes that I won’t get into - that is the last thing Anime Network needs now… and that can happen since they and other industry members are visiting this forum. So there’s a liability issue here, that doesn’t exist in a college paper, especially when we want good relations with those sites in question.

There’s a lot of stuff that goes on behind the scenes in this forum and externally that a lot you guys are not aware of (since we act on it in many cases before you guys see it, if it’s on the surface). A lot of things we do are based on things we know and have experienced over the years that some of you can’t see or appreciate. As mods, there’s a reason why our rules and attitudes evolve, shift and adapt.

Lately we mods have been getting a lot of back-talk and drama lately. Slowhand or I ask people to stop and there’s either continuation of it or people don’t listen. We’re tired of it. Our time is precious. We try to treat you all as friends and peers, but, when we have to switch to our official mod duties people still think of us as friends and peers and rules are debatable… I would hate for us to have to remove ourselves from the fray of being like everyone’s friend and force ourselves to post less/and be more cold, distant and tougher so that people start to listen. Maybe we need more nazi mods actually, since we lost Wolfo, we’ve gotten too soft - we lost our hammer.

When we ask something, there’s a whole laundry list of reasons why we do and we expect people to do it, and do it without fuss.

As slowhand would say, this is the end of that convo. Let’s get back to the topic at hand…

Go dragoon. CRACK THAT WHIP!!

Anyway, I’ve been meaning to pick this up for a long. Unfortunately, the BV release was just so expensive. I just can’t bring myself to spend $60+ on one movie. I will probably grab it off ebay sometime in the near future.

I must go semi-off topic in slowhand fashion to mention I stole her whip. lol :stuck_out_tongue:

I don’t know about this one. It’s famous and supposedly good but that “GAINAX” on the box scares me.

The Feature (Dub & Sub) is now live at ANO

Looking back a few posts, this thread makes me very sad. Three years. I can’t believe it.
