No pun that I'm aware of (which doesn't mean there isn't one there, though).hm,
"Wie geht es Ihnen?" - "Wo ist die Jugendherberrge?" strikes me like a pun I know from somewhere, I just cannot say from where. Possible ? A-Team maybe ? I recall they flew to Germany once...
Coincidence, since I thought that might've been a spoilery link. Was I wrong? I can go look.BTW, is it coincidence that Ami wears the same hat in Gargoylewings video link than in your strip, or did you do that on purpose...?
Desperately so, yes.Gargoylewing said:You changed that to keep the cram school characterization a bit smaller, didn't you ?
Almost certainly, given the American television climate for the time. I seem to recall they did Sailor Moon PSAs at the end of each episode, too, for the same reason.I'll tell you something else the animators didn't think of. Or the western rights-holders were just anal.
This was the episode where, in the dub shown on US TV, Amy's wearing a seat belt (complete with shoulder strap) when riding in the car. In the original version she is not.
yeah. I think the dub rights holders were just anal.
No shit.Well, I'll be a monkey's uncle...
According to dictionary.com, there's actual an archaic alternative meaning for illusion -- "a very thin, delicate tulle of silk or nylon having a cobwebbed appearance, for trimmings, veilings, and the like."
Um... tulle meaning "a thin, fine, machine-made net of acetate, nylon, rayon, or silk." Named after the village of Tulle, where this particular textiles process originated.
So what she's actually commanding is, "Present yourself, fine silk-like veil of water!"
There you are, then.
Well, he's got money from somewhere. Huge frikkin' apartment in Metropolitan Tokyo, fancy car, nice clothes. He's not earning that money working as a production assistant at the TV station.Jhiday said:What folks ? He's an orphan ! We had intense flashbacks to that last season !
(Okay, he's probably got some sort of adoptive family. But they've yet to be mentioned at all.)
Man, he looks like motherfuckin' Togusa, a guy so badass that he got headhunted for Section 9 where everyone else is cyborgs. Hells, yeah, he looks good in that suit.He looks awesome in that suit.
The hordes of women following him obviously agree.
*goes off and finds a few clips… listens carefully several times with eyes closed…*I think we've got a misunderstanding going on here, or I totally blew the question.
To summarize, I asked Shadowjack a question about Roberta. Shadowjack commented about Roberta (I thought), then commented about Revy. I asked who the voice actress was, meaning Roberta's voice actress. And Ashikaider looked up the actress for Revy.
So let's try it again. Shadowjack, can you tell who the voice actress for Roberta is by listening? (and it's cheating to look it up, everybody)
I go for the latter. He was fairly old at the car accident, so going through the foster system until he came of age is believable.Well, he's got money from somewhere.

My guess is that he's got rich parents paying his way through university. (Not biological parents, but they are his parents, darn it.) Unless we wanna go with him inheriting the family fortune when he came of age, thus explaining all his lonely Byronic poses upon his balcony.
Though it does happen.I go for the latter. He was fairly old at the car accident, so going through the foster system until he came of age is believable.
Absente parents are one thing, but ones who adopted that late? Seems kinda odd.
Oo! Now that's nice and tragic.Hm, I guess maybe some older family who needs an heir, and adopted him solely because he's studious, smart, and could carry on the business. Not so much personally caring for him, but glad they found someone who can fill the role.
Remember, we also see him his old-timey outfit when he's running around as brainwashed Endymion for Beryl.Going backwards, I suppose the traditional garb of court bodyguards of the Earth Kingdom coincidentally resembles Earth formal wear, which is why he gets that instead of the mail and sword he wore as Endymion.
I was trying to think of something with a bit more background than 'they adopt him and give him money... then they leave.' It seems a little too 'lazy RPG background to explain character wealth' to meOo! Now that's nice and tragic.
Very loosely.Remember, the 'Sailor Suit' style school uniform is loosely descended from actual naval military uniforms. LOOSELY.
Yep.Remember, we also see him his old-timey outfit when he's running around as brainwashed Endymion for Beryl.
I kinda thought the Earth Kingdom Bodyguards wore the Dark Kingdom jackets, honestly. But maybe they had time for a quick-change when they met up with Beryl.Going backwards, I suppose the traditional garb of court bodyguards of the Earth Kingdom coincidentally resembles Earth formal wear, which is why he gets that instead of the mail and sword he wore as Endymion.
