Princess Resurrection

Now this is how you do an adaptation. Although there are a lot of changes in the anime compared to the original source, the characters' personalities and the main plot remain the same. No matter which way they take the show, it should be able to follow the manga's main story pretty well.

I wish Freezing and Claymore were treated the same way. Freezing kept the main characters' personalities the same, but they completely altered the personalities of the side characters. Many of them by the way play a major role in later arcs. In Claymore, they changed one of the main character's personalities (Raki) and completely altered the main plot. It's almost impossible for either title to be able to continue on they way they are.

I've watched 6 episodes of Princess Resurrection last night and I'm really impressed. Although some of the plot devices have been changed (see spoiler below), I really like some of the additions. For one thing, the manga's character designs are pretty flat, while in the anime they look more rounded. This portrays the fan service much better in my opinion.

Click to reveal..
There are quite a few differences between the manga and the anime. I will list some of the major changes below.

1.) The way Hiro dies has been altered. Hiro dies from getting hit by a truck in the manga (caused by Flandre). In the anime, he saves Hime and gets killed by falling construction beams. This change was done because of the two rules on how a royal resurrects the dead.

- a.) Royals resurrect beings that have status or those that have sacrificed themselves to save the royal.
- b.) Royals also are obliged to resurrect rare monsters that are becoming instinct.

2.) In the manga, it's hinted many times that Hiro and his sister Sawawa are rare monsters. In the anime, Hime states that both Hiro and Sawawa are human.

3.) The resurrection process has been completely altered. In the anime, Hime gives Hiro the "flame of life". In the manga, Hime gives Hiro some of her blood. This makes him into a "blood warrior", which gives Hiro the ability to transform when Hime is in trouble. The transformation gives Hiro red eyes and blond hair. Although, it doesn't change him physically, it does heighten his senses of awareness. He is also the only blood warrior that has the power to transform at will even when Hime isn't in danger.

4.) The violence has been severally toned down in the anime.

As noted above, Iím watching Happy lesson, but thatís in the Bedroom Player.
Iím just watching that one right now during the last hour or so before sleep.

I started watching Bodacious Space Pirates collection 1 in the front room.
Iím not ( donít plan on it anyway ) going to watch the whole thing,
I just wanted to decide if I liked it enough to keep Collection 2 on per-order,
than wait till after it came in before watching the whole thing.

Iím only on episode 3 and I must say this one is a Fun one so far, I plan on finishing the first disc.
If I watch anymore of collection 1 after that, I canít say at the moment.

Moretsu Space Pirates was a keeper for me when I saw it fansubbed (actually crunchyroll rips).

Aria The Natural Part 2, Disc 2.
So Aika gets a haircut (it's rather cute), and Akari had to give up her old godolla (which was very sad).
The story about how Woody, Al, and Atkuski were childhood friends was pretty fun. Especially the big reveal that it was Akira who out "maned" Atkuski.
They also had an episode about making a new pylon for the Aria Company.
It shows "Grandma" when she was young, and President Aria is in her hands...that means this fat cat is over 80 years old...

Just finished up 6 more episodes of Girls Bravo. It's still enjoyable and I'm glad to learn more about some of the side characters background. I loved the part time job and mahjong episodes. Ebi's voice caught me off guard in the mahjong episode. Now on to the last 6.

It's like a drug. At first I was like, OK I'll try some of this; and next thing I knew, I had burned through the entire first disc.

I just finished the first 8 episodes of Shigurui: Death Frenzy. I'm loving it. It's mature and I like the story. I did not expect the scene near the end of episodes 8. I hope the last 4 episodes are as good as the first 8.
