Heh, heh, heh... heh heh...

*incoherent mad, gleeful giggling*

Heh heh... heh heh heh.


*pets DVD* My precious...


*gleeful wringing of the hands* *wiggly, energetic bouncing on balance ball*


And now I must somehow get my brain functional enough to survive not only dinner with my family, but an enforced recap of The Wedding. I'm quite certain I will survive it by reminding myself that I can rewatch as soon as I get home. (Must attempt not to do the gleeful chortling or happy wringing of the hands.)


Oh, and

WHY THE HELL IS THERE AN AQUA PROJECT BARREL IN THE PHOENIX NEST?!?!??!?!?!!!!



There will be more chortling and squealing later. But for now, I'm late.

I THOUGHT THE SAME THING. SEVEN WILL NOT BE HAPPY IF GUYS JAPAN HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE AQUA PROJECT!

Methinks I need to go re-watch SevenX again, 'cause I have the feeling that I missed something. But Seven's from this universe, and the Aqua Project's clearly from the other. Maybe the dimensional whatever that Seven originally went through is back? Perhaps they'll have a new series where Our Heroes are fighting against the bad guys from SevenX, with Kanata hosting our new Ultraman? (Yes, I'm on a theme -- can you tell?)

From the comic, who's the guy with the lightning bolt groves on his head?
Sandpanthersandpanther on July 29th, 2008 07:33 pm (UTC)
New guy.

You know that manga's not really related to the OVA, yeah? (The end bit might be, I don't remember. The rest really isn't that much.)

Is why I had to specify from the comic.

Okay, I may not be up on the fan aspect, however for your sake, I am SO glad you have something this wonderfully entertaining to divert yourself from Wedding Recap! :)

I'm actually kinda squeeful about the Aqua Project barrel, because I see it as a way to combine universes and silence the inner nitpicker. Harnessed well, it's got a lot of potential. :D

Other than that, IT WAS COMPLETELY RANDOM. WHATTHE.
Sandpanthersandpanther on August 2nd, 2008 06:08 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm figuring it's there as part of Tsuburaya's ongoing campaign to unite all the Ultraman universes. I amuse myself with the idea that it's there as part of a set up for a spin-off/continuation of Mebi series. (Though I expect that it would have a new Ultraman, since they don't really repeat 'em.)

I'll go out on a limb here and say the Aqua Project barrel is probably not unique to SevenX by any means (I think I have heard of the phrase "Aqua Project" before SevenX, though I don't currently have any source to back this up). In fact, it took me a second viewing to even clue in that this might have been what you were talking about. Most likely real-world explanation is the prop guy needed a barrel, and since this one was so conveniently around, why not? While I think it's fun to speculate what might have happened, story-wise, I don't actually believe there is any story hidden, or at least one that is intended.

Ooh, something to keep an eye out for as I go pecking through past Ultraman series'. If you happen to remember where you've seen the reference before I'd be intrigued to know where it was.

I guess time will bear out whether it was there intentionally or just as a random prop. Though I suspect we'll have to wait at least nine months (or more) since I think the next project in queue for Tsuburaya is Ultra Galaxy 2. (Though if my theory that UG is in the same universe as Mebi and the Showa Ultraman series' then it's possible it could show up in UG after all.)

Ah, well...I hesitate to say this, but it begins to look as if the Aqua Project I thought of was probably not connected to Ultraman after all. ^^;; Still, I really did believe I had in mind the reference to Ultraman stuff when I made my original comment. (Probably was thinking of the original UltraSeven TV series, since that series is mostly scientific, but I suppose I must have been mistaken.)

Though if my theory that UG is in the same universe as Mebi and the Showa Ultraman series' then it's possible it could show up in UG after all.

Perhaps you might be right. Even if not, Tsuburaya (when it suits their purpose; anniversary stuff is the first thing that comes to mind) would probably find some (convoluted) way for UG and the Showa series to share universe. They have done something similar at least a few times already.
