Atlest goku is not always the hero like yusake is alway saving everyone ass all the time.
mainly because there was character development especially at the beginning of the series. Plus there's a good rounded off ending in sight and not a stupid amount of episodes that just gets so boring after a while.

As for Ninja Scroll TV, what were people expecting? The original movie was only as popular as it was because it featured over the top violence and a near rape scene. We got over the top violence in Ninja Scroll TV minus the near rape scene. That should only piss off Bemani.
Know what I expected?

NO ROBOT NINJAS

Yeah, the robot ninja's were strange but then again, you've got to suspend disbelief when you're watching most anime. I took it as is because they were talking about ancient technologies with the ancients and everything. The people seeking the technology were related to the ancients in some manner hence all those robots. It's a bandaid solution but it works for an anime with a story as light as this ones.

It was so bad i stopped watching it half way.

I hope Ninja Scroll 2 is better.

But even the orignal Ninja Scroll isn't holding up the test of time well

I am OFFICIALLY a Naruto fan, yup they just keep increasing and increasing.
Oh and Zazuba's the coolest char in the episode (got to EP 66 Gaara vs. Sasuke).

Ok, I wasn't gonna ask this but what was their about the first Ninja Scroll that made you think the series would be any good. The first movie got a cult reputation for doing everything the t.v series did minus the aforementioned near rape scene.

Oh and yeah, the guy with the killer intestines was bizarre but the character that was just so totally effed up was that chick that tore other people's limbs off and reattached them to her body. That was bordering on Apocalypse Zero material.

Heh, it's pretty cheap but you might wanna read a few reviews first. This anime is even worse then Ninja Scroll when it comes to over the top violence and the story is even lighter then Ninja Scroll.

Because everyone has seen them and usually there's a rampant over abundance of talk about it since they've been shown on american television. I personally think Excel Saga is horribly overrated. But that's just me.

Sure it doesn't.

I'm happy. I finally found a batch torrent of Nurse Witch Komugi-Chan on wannabe fansubbers. It's so cute it's annoying, but the magical girl battles are really funny. The third episode is all about Komugi getting hit by a bus and dying and none of her co-workers really caring, so she haunts them, and accidently gives them huge success as models for occult magazines.
