Good news, everyone! There's brain slugs four new Damekko Doubutsu for you all!

(By way of the ever-vigilant ibneko)

Edit: and now three more!
 
 
 
 
 
 
Hoorj!
I ought to correct that - there's seven new ones now! (Taking us, regrettably, to the end..)
Hmm...doesn't look like there are any seeders for 23-26.

Anyway, it means me and the coon will have to to a marathon watching of the whole series next time I visit (I may just kidnap him back to my place instead of staying at his place next time).
Ahh, true. I suppose they haven't quite got around to seeding those yet, given how new they are.. I'll most likely just leave those three sitting on the torrent overnight. (Ah, the joy of not having to worry about bandwidth usage..)

Oh, he's into the show as well? Or are you about to make that so? ^_^

I love that opening (well, only ^_^;) theme, too. Pity there doesn't seem to be anything extra for the series, like audio doramas - there was a pretty neat one for Dragon Half, with the complete opening and closing themes, Dick Saucer's song, and one or two other tracks.
Having to worry about bandwidth usage would be odd for me (well, except for not using up all the upload bandwidth (16K/sec up is as fast as I can go without slowing down performance considerably)).

I introduced him to it during my first visit...while he was at work. He ended up watching 19 episodes that night during unofficial breaks.

I do love the opening, but I find it gets a bit repetitive when watching the whole series in one sitting.
Whoa! 19 in one day? Not bad going. ^_^

True, even the best theme can be a bit much in close proximity - I just watched a Tom Baker era Doctor Who last night, "The Sun Makers", a four-parter, and wound up cutting off the ending theme most of the time. (Still, it was nice to be reminded of an age of television where announcers didn't blab over the ending theme, just leaving it to play itself out.. that inventor's going to share the same circle of hell as the creator of the phrase "your call is very important to us, so please stay on the line" :)

I've got to try digging around and see if there's any hope of more of DD. ^_^ Probably not - most anime seem to be made for a given series length, and that's it, unless they really do well, and the creator's interested in more. Which is fair enough - Azumanga Daioh could probably have come back for another 13 or more episodes quite easily, but the 26 there are make for just the right length. (Though, I'll admit, I would like to see a special, featuring them all something like one year on) A series like Haibane Renmei just wouldn't have worked nearly as well, stretched out beyond its 13. Better a few gems than a quarryful of ore, ne?
"your call is very important to us, so please stay on the line"
"We have an important message, but all of our operators are busy. If you would please hold..." is much worse. It gets as far as "important message" before I say, "No you don't" and hang up (saying anything might not actually accomplish something, but it makes me feel more satisfied).

A few gems would be preferred...but a treasure chest of gems would be much better.
