Ultra Galaxy NEO 8  
madsqueeble, go watch this. Just trust me on this.

This episode was far and away the best episode of the series. Either of the Ultra Galaxy series'. It was also on complete and utter monkey crack. It is not (quite) cool enough to get its own rung on the Cheese Ladder -- but it's mighty close. I will keep watching if for no other reason than to hope they can once again bring cheese of this quality.

Randomly, when trying to figure out who the screenplay writer and director are (since I recognized neither of their styles) I realized that no, really, I don't know them. This is, to me, only of note because Daikaijuu Battle was using all the main directors and writers from Moebius, so I recognized pretty much all the staff. It leaves me wondering, since they're not working on Never Ending Odyssey, what are they doing?

Finally watched it! That was an awesome change of pace from the rest of Galaxy. (and Grande from the previous two episodes? Fabulous. Pritti. Evil.)

I'd been getting pretty disappointed in the NEO, but that episode redeems it in my eyes. Though Grande had been entertaining me. Entertaining and so very, very swishy.

To me NEO is pretty much full of Rei going 'RAARGHARHHHAAAAAAGGGHHHHRRR' with intermissions of 'woe'. D:

Swishy Grande ftw! So despicable, yet so *shiny* and entertaining. And let's not forget Dile the Pedanian with his frizzy hair, pissyfaces and laser sword licking.

I swear, some of those episodes it probably took the actor, like, five minutes maybe to memorize his lines. So little dialog, so much RAR!ing. Not enough Ultras giving him a well-deserved boot to the head.

Dunno about that - after 10-plus episodes of his writhing and wincing in pain, I have come to describe the cranial throbbing work is giving me now as 'Rei-daches'. ;)

It's bad that the moment I saw Armored Darkness I yelled 'WHY THE HELL IS THAT STILL IN ONE PIECE', isn't it? (Now I'm picturing the Emperan with a big closet full of sentient suits of armour...)

"Rei-daches" *amused* Yes, indeed.

Yeah, when I saw that Armored Darkness was showing up I was all "WTF? Didn't that get destroyed a loooong time ago?" And yet it keeps appearing.

BTW, I have a copy of Urufes '08 now. Guess what's in it? If you guessed "Armored Darkeness" you'd be right! It looks like it's taking off from the Terebi-kun version of the AD story line.

Gnuh. Careful there Tsuburaya, wouldn't wanna wear out the novelty or anything. :/

'Grats on UlFes, btw! Is it sufficiently shiny? :D

Coming back to read this now that the Galaxy movie announcements have started makes me somewhat squeeful. :D

Wow, this was posted in February. I knew I'd been whinging about "where is everyone" for a while, but I'd lost track that it had been THAT long.

And despite that, the movie looks really light on the folks I know. I'm betting I can tell you every single suit actor who'll be working on it, though! And now I know why they were hiring new ones.
