Anime Unleashed comes on at 1:00 and 4:30. I don't know if it comes on Saturdays or not. But yeah it's a really good series. One of the few dubs that are above average.

You must be talking about Sophia?
[spoiler] Yeah, I thought she was older until I saw her in her Princess stuff. She looked much younger then. I wanted to break my t.v. when Mistro kissed Alex! mad.gif [/spoiler]

I loved Last Exile. I'm supried more people haven't heard of this series. The ending was very sad though. ;-;

I really want to make a Sophia costume. Of her uniform I mean, now if I can only find my Alex. wub.gif

@Celes:

Don't worry. Delphine gets hers in a very satisfying way.

Waitaminuite.

[spoiler]How is Sophie only 19? Wasn't she with Alex as his co-pilot/girlfriend who fell out of the plane and was found, somehow ending up as royality?[/spoiler]

Of course, the sub I watched had horrible subtitles so maybe I missed something.
Carnal Malefactor
I didn't realize Sophia was that young! I'd thought she was in her mid-20s.

Tatiana was the one I was lusting after on that show, though. She was feisty. biggrin.gif

Hmmm...
[spoiler]it's been over a year since I've watched, but as I recall, Alex only 'kidnapped' Sophia because she reminded him so much of the woman he'd lost back then.[/spoiler]

XD I don't see what anyone sees in her...

To answer all of you guys' questions: [Spoiler]Sophia was stationed on the Silvana I believe, and Alex fell in love with her because she reminded him of the woman he had lost. As for Sophia...Well, who can resist Alex? tongue.gif They said it was "love at first sight".[/Spoiler]

[spoiler] I remember one guy back where Sophia is from saying that they found her which leads me to believe that she and Alexs love are one in the same.[/spoiler]

But that'd be...Eew. I mean that'd make her all old and stuff...It's probably true though, if you think about it. She wasn't raised by her real parents so she could've gotten amnesia after she fell...
Envy's lil' miniskirt
What do you mean by old? She's not that old, she younger than me. sad.gif

*goes in corner and cries*
Celestial Shadow
Aw well, I meant because [Spoiler]She kissed Claus, and that's kinda entering pedophile range if she's that age[/Spoiler]
Envy's lil' miniskirt
I know, I was just playing around. But if you notice in anime, older people tend to go after younger people. I don't get it but maybe it's because I'm an American and there's laws against that kind of stuff here. tongue.gif
Celestial Shadow
Well maybe they're all just pedophiles over there laugh.gif I'd personally rather have Alex to Claus, but Claus is cute in his own way.
Carnal Malefactor
But it's usually the older men who go after younger women, not the other way around.

...unless they're Paula Poundstone...
Envy's lil' miniskirt
Not true. Look at Fooly Cooly and Photon. Both featured older women going after young guys so it works both ways.

FLCL is very much open to debate, and I've never seen Photon.

You could at least humor me with examples of female teachers having affairs with male students.
Shit, if I'd had a teacher like that, I would've liked high school a whole helluva lot more!

I'm sorry. I thought we were talking about anime. tongue.gif

If you lived here you would probably be beating them off with a stick.

Besides, I think Alex appels to mine and Celes long hair fetish. tongue.gif

Put it this way, long hair is tough to take care of. It takes a lot more energy to keep it clean and smelling good. The Silverna probably didn't have great shower facilities [if it had any at all]. Alex always wore heavy clothing. The ship only docked once every few weeks. You see where I'm going with this?

Blasphamy!

The Silvania was the top of the line! I'm sure Alex smelled like a rose. biggrin.gif Also in anime, no one can smell your funk anyway.

Besides, I have long hair and I have no problem keeping it clean and groomed. Face it Bacon, you were just lazy. tongue.gif

He's 28. A little too old for you Celes! But don't worry, me and Mini can handle him tongue.gif Damn, he's really handsome, but I've been fangirling about Vincent lately. I love those cocky bastards.

Hey, I said it was gross! Not a fan of incest in any situation. I'm like this with almost every anime/manga, with FMA being the exception. Claus is an okay main character, but Lavie annoys the crap outta me. She has no backbone of her own and she's just so needy.
Carnal Malefactor
I don't think Lavie is too bad. She does a decent enough job avoiding getting killed despite everything she goes through. She seems like a strong enough girl early on, but as the series advances, she kinda fades into the background. But you can't really ask too much of a 15-year-old girl.

Delphine is a nasty little bitch, I jumped up and squeeled with glee when she got hers, especially the way she did. Maybe you should write a fic Bacon Delphine/woodchipper.laugh.gif I'd totally read that fic.

@Edsgirl:

Since when were you into FMA incest? huh.gif

Also, I liked Lavie, I though she was realistic. Like Bacon said, she did kind of fade into the background and I wish she had been in the story more but given her circumstances I think she did fine.
