boy, it's been long since I posted anything, oh well. I finished Robert McGammon's Boy's Life. I love his books, I haven't been disappointed yet. It's a little hard to put into words about this particular one beyond the fact that I couldn't put it down. It's about a young boy and the magic things that happen growing up in a small town. Yeah, this doesn't sound like much but go to Amazon.com for a better description. This is a really good book. the other one I read by him is The Wolf's Hour, about a werewolf in WWII and he's called to do a mission behind enemy lines. really good. Anywho, back to the anime. I picked up the newest Knight Hunters: Eternity and Yu YU Hakusho: Tempting Fate. Haven't watched 'em yet, hopefully soon. oh, geez, BIT TORRENT!!!! NotT walked me through setting it up (there's a link to the left to his group's site and he wrote up a walk through about how to get started) and now I'm a torrent fool! basically the way I understand stand it, Bit Torrent is a person to person media sharing system. Safer and more reliable than Kazaa and those type of systems. Anywho, I've discovered this great series, Auatsuri Sakon. It's about this puppeteer, Sakon, and his "living" puppet Ukon. And throgh the series they come across murders and solve them. It kinda reminds me of Detective Conan a.k.a. Case Closed. Except for the puppet. I've seen the first six episodes and it's great. The curious thing is, at the moment, the description says that Ukon is a living puppet, but you can't tell if that's true or whether Sakon is projecting a personality that he himself wishes to express. Sakon is quite, reserved, intellgent, a character of few words. Ukon on the other hand, is loud, emotional, a bit full of himself, but laughable. So it's a mystery to be solved later on in the series. I am just about to start Bleach, which looks like another winner. A kid who teams up with Death or something. Looks good! well, back to torrenting!

I've seen most of this fansubbed and loved it. And finally it has been licensed in the U.S. and is going to air on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim Saturday night at midnight (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex will air after it at 12:30) Here is the official website for Alchemist where they offer a couple of clips. http://www.fullmetalalchemist.com/dvd.htm
From what I hear from these clips the voices don't sound too bad. and from what I read there will be minimal editing. The dvd's will be released starting in February. I think there will be a total of 13 dvd's and then 2 box sets will be released. Can't Wait! Everyone will probably find something they like about this series. You'll laugh, You'll cry, but the final word from me is that this is great stuff. (I think if you liked Trigun you'll probably like this) So three words: WATCH THIS SHOW!!
