    Er… most (American and Japanese) shows have 20-26 shows per season, so 10-13 is actually about 1/3 to 1/2 fewer, not 2/3 fewer…

    You know I think I knew that? I've used the 1/3 number before when making this point, I think it was actually literally just a typo.

    I love how you could just eyeball that, though. I can't do math.

    Interesting episode that really struck me as making a strong point when the Warder turned out to be just as violent as the inmates. I guess he was effectively also and inmate himself – and actually in light of the system of observation and punishment (instituted straight even in the early Years system) we live within, we could all be seen as being inmates. This is the wider prison that Kei and Yuri could be seen to be taking apart.

    Oh one thing that did bother me a bit about this was the fact that of the Angels' voices being dubbed. Just minor though and I think I will get over it.

    Yeah, for some reason Manga Entertainment put the English dubbed versions of the OVA Series on YouTube and Hulu. Sorry; I couldn't do anything about that.

    The DVD versions, which I used for my reviews, are all properly subtitled (though you can access the two dubbed versions in the language options menu).

    Oh don't worry about it, I simply appreciate you making episodes available for us which makes my appreciation of these essays so much easier. I have gotten over it and really enjoying the episodes.
