Discussion of Excell Saga and Puni Puni Poemi
He thinks there is someone still here that remembers those shows!
This place is dead anon. We only discuss older shows now if they were popular. Of course, that's after we spoonfeed all the idiots and cross-boarders.
I really loved excell saga, but i have not watched puni puni poemi
I want to Puni Poemy's Punis while Futaba watches!
Op here. I am genuinely surprised that people here even remember excel saga. Any way... I've read the manga in Japanese and it isn't bad.
PPP was a crazy ride. It's a shame few people are familiar with it here. I'm guessing otaku find it too painful to watch as the show makes fun of them, in a clever way.
I have it and PPP on DVD.
How is it different from anime?
The Manga has a different feel to it, it's a bit more serious than the anime and has more of a story arc than the slice of life anime episodes.
Come back, Nabeshin.
I remember Excel Saga, anon. In fact, I think this was back when I was still watching anime that wasn't Naruto or Bleach on YouTube.
Current 4chan may not remember ES or PPP, but you can try the imageboard if you like
Radically different (read the Viz translation, which wrapped up last year I believe?). The anime consists of parodies of different shows (and to a lesser extent video games and movies), whereas the manga subscribes more to the idea of "Normal human beings in dramatic situations (like out of a manga--in this case, a good vs evil sentai manga I'd say), driven on by individual stories. Then shit gets very confusing but still very fun.
For comparison (the manga and series) they're stories in different genres but with some of the same core cast--the manga's most notable additions are Elgala and Umi.
The other imageboard*
I read the raw Japanese version of it. Some of it was very difficult to understand, so thanks for providing a better explanation than I could.
Didn't they follow the manga only for first episode or two and then went full original?
I enjoyed Excel Saga and PPP back when I was in high school. Kind of was right up my ally of being an lolrandum gaiafag at the time.
If I remember right, Excel Saga kind of shaped anime comedy for a couple years, didn't it? Everyone was trying to copy that super hyperactive, self aware parody comedy style in the early to mid 2000's.
still love the OP
Excel was one of my favorite anime in the early 2000
No problem. Weirdly I don't remember which volume this scene is from, definitely one of the later ones--it might've gotten cut, then again, there's lots of scenes with Elgala getting groped and/or humilated and/or beating the shit out of someone while being groped or humiliated that made it into the Viz release. Doubly so if Excel was involved (and she usually is).
I think it's a decent release on Viz's part (an admittedly difficult one), so it's worth checking out if you can find it free/cheap.
tfw most of Sup Forums don't even watched "anime minimum"
A friend told me to watch Excel Saga. Haven't got round to it and he said the English dub is worth a try. Is it?
Yes dub is good.
