Now and Then, Here and There
I never finished watching the series, but since selphish uploaded it, I figured why not, I'd try finishing it again. I think I remember the reason why I stopped watching - there was no WMV3 support for mac back then. And there still isn't. XP

But.. yeah. The animation style is old - pre DBZ/SM, I think. The series is well worth watching, I think. 13 episodes, so it's not too long, although it is slower than most things out today.

Eh, there's so much in the series, as possible thought/discussion material. Such as, the reason to live, reasons to kill... hope... the mindset of soldiers... I don't know. Stuff. XP Possibly "limited natural resources". That rulers should be killed off before they go mad (and bipolar..), as opposed to following orders regardless of the mental state of the ruler. Greed is bad. Revenge is bad. Wizard's third rule: Passion Rules Reason. (Villager's revenge)

By the way, the list of Wizard's Rules:

There's the free version of the Flip4Mac plugin - it only plays files (hafta pay to get it to act as an importer), but it does work quite well, and being just a QuickTime plugin, it doesn't mean Yet Another Player.

Overall, there was a lot to like about the series, I felt, but the leader's insanity became just annoying after a while - his commander was entirely too sensible to stand for such an idiot, I thought. The message of courage and self-sacrifice, though, was very well handled indeed.

Yeah, I know about Flip4Mac - it didn't work though.

Eh, I don't know - if the commander truely believed / was brought up with the idea that what the leader said had to be true / had to be done... it's within probable limits. She definitely displayed hesitations for things, and prompted with questions to suggest alternatives to the leader's orders..
