Because every truly epic anime needs a Power Metal adaptation

(2004, Medusa's Coil)

If you're still scratching your head with the native Italian accents and all, here's the lyrics:

This world man's destiny is controlled
By some transcendental entity or law
At least man knows that he has no control
Over his own will

On the day the hawk fell
You saw your love betrayed
A new order to enslave the world
And for you a new battle to fight

We are the darkness, your own race
We taste the flesh of your comrades
No, I won't surrender
Your heart is ours, your blood is ours
The brand will grant you no escape

Angels or demons? Apostles of death

Bloody trails veil my dreams
By the sword of the Berserk
But I know I will be free
From the demons that hunt my soul

On the road you walk in silence
There's only darkness by your side
The roots of evil grow and thrive
In the world that mankind's created
The traitor was your brother
Once he led you to the stars
Now you wield your sword in battle
Just to claim your vengeance in blood


The world has been damned, do we have to die?


We have only one chance
Fighting or dying
In this burning hell called earth
Last son of the hand of God
Traitor of love...
You married hate to my soul...

"I am the flesh....
Ambrosia for the immortal ones"
Come into my flame...
My violent desire
"You tear apart...
The human pleasure from it's cradle"
I order your ruin...
Killer of passions...
"Better death
Than your damned fire"
I devour your essence...
On your body my perversion
"Better the sword
Than your claws on my breast"
Settle your mortal senses
To my cruel will...

Did I mention they also did THIS?

Catch you later, friends.

I know it's unrelated to the post, but can you please tell a guy where to either buy or download the uncut La Blue Girl? I'm finding it completely insane how difficult it is to find on the internet, the place where you can find anything. It's completely elusive.

Well, mysterious Anon, that's a really good question... unfortunately, these are the only answers I have off the top of my head, and none of them are especially comforting:

* There were Japanese DVDs released several years ago with two uncut episodes each. Unfortunately, those are long out of print and command a higher than normal price, even on Yahoo Auctions Japan (last I checked, around $100 per disc). You can always have a deputy service bid on them, but man, that gets expensive! Worse yet, you need to buy your own monthly fee-based account and log in to the "Adult" section first, since just looking for "淫獣学園" won't get you much but the occasional ad poster or artbook that YAJ doesn't recognize as being pr0n for whatever reason.

Some of the cut footage was pixelated and some of it wasn't, and of course as Japanese discs they're in the local language with no subtitles.

* There was also a French DVD release, which is also OOP and not especially cheap. The good news is the footage was uncensored, so you can finally watch Nin-Nin eating pussy in all of his uncensored glory. The bad news is that it was dubbed in French only, no Japanese audio track. It's also an NTSC > PAL conversion, but that probably goes without saying. Not owning them I have no clue if they cut the episodes together or replaced the credits or anything else that might make them a more or less appealing option.

* Finally, the earliest of Anime 18 subtitled VHS releases were supposedly uncensored. I've never seen them for sale, so I don't know how to spot them compared to the edited subtitled version they released not too long afterward.

If I ever get through my massive back-log of titles I have on the back burner you'll get some fun La Blue Girl related news. I'm not going to set you up for disappointment and give you a date, but I'll say that it should be sometime this year.
