Hi Aardy!

Yeah, I agree with you there.  Have you seen VanDread?  I just 
finished watching the 8 disc VanDread series.  They restricted 
the CG to the mech battle scenes.  Initially I found it a little 
jarring to go back and forth from CG to cell ... but overall, 
I think it worked pretty well.

I will check out Appleseed, but I've got quite a bit of anime 
already queued up ... 

* Caught the first two episodes of the 4 disc Ikki Tousen series 
last night.  Man, I sure hope it gets better than that ... cuz 
that certainly wasn't very good.  ;-(       Thumbs down so far.

* Got 7 of the old Mahoro discs queued up.  Caught a few of the 
manga on a recent plane ride, looked like fun, thought I'd check 
out the videos.

* Got the 9 disc Marmalade Boy series queued up after that.

... and some singles sprinkled in here and there ...

"3 ... 2 ... 1 ... Let's Jam!"
