...and all have military training. Are people *born* with the ability to pilot any type of mech in that world? Good as it is in general, there is a lot that doesn't fit, and makes me think "show designed for teens". At this point I'd give it maybe 7.5 or 8 out of 10.

BTW, has anyone seen Highlander Vengeance? I have it, but it is only in English...? Was that the way it was designed or did I get a dub by accident?

yeah you shouldn't have bought Highlander, it's not even the original cut, for some reason, they cut out scenes from the original japanese release of it and the director was pissed about it so now they're going to have a Director's cut later this year which will probably include the japanese dub also.

I haven't seen Highlander yet, I might download it from Boxtorrents later. I've heard the dub is pretty horrible though it's done by crappy Ocean Studios. Maybe I'll wait for a subbed version afterall.

If they kill the villians, they essentially end the conflict. That creates splits in interest and forces the manga-ka to come up with new conflict. Usually that new conflict isn't as good as the first (see current Naruto chapters).

In other news, Ooedo Rocket is fucking awesome.

Speaking of Summer anime, what ones are people here looking forward to?

Shigurui is tops for me. Can't beat period samurai action from MADHOUSE

Nothing else looks particularly great, IMO.

Gurrne-Lagaan and Claymore are my current votes for best anime still going at the moment (excluding the soon to be finished Code Geass Season 1), though I am also taking the time to enjoy the wonderfully, recently completed, DeathNote.
