DBZ - focused, DBZ - outlaw

Sasami: Mahou Shoujo Club

In my random ambling about the Intarweb, I seem to have made a discovery: Looks like they're about to release another incarnation of Magical Girl Pretty Sammy. Tip of the hat to tsuyoshi_kun and T.H.E.M. Anime for the linkage. (And Happy Birthday, by the way!) ^_^v

Being a shoujo geek and Tenchi Muyo geek in general and a Sasami fanboy in particular, I'll almost definitely go out and at watch this. It should be interesting...I'm not 100% sold on the character designs just yet, and I'm a little pissed that Mana Ogawa will be voicing the main character instead of Chisa Yokoyama, but I'm at least intrigued. Though part of the charm of Pretty Sammy was how it parodied the entire Magical Girl'll be highly unusual to see it taken seriously. Well, as seriously as any Sailor Moon-ish series can be. Could be a good thing, or it just as easily could take away what made Magical Project S great. *shrugs*

And for those of you that for whatever reason still haven't matched up the screenname to the face? (Apparently there's still a few of you out there, so it bears repeating.) Before you think about bashing me for liking Pretty Sammy and Sailor Moon, remember that I'm still the pissed off Redneck psychotaku with the baseball bat. Oh yes.
