No, its in the episode with the guy at the gate when they get to the soul society.  The guy with the two axes, uses his 10 something or other.  Idk, it was like 20 episodes ago now.

So did anyone ever watch Cyber Six?  I know it wasn't too big outside of Canada.  We used to lump it together with anime since it was a French/Japanese/Canadian production.

So I was on some Dragon Ball forums; very big set of elitists.  They were trashing Viz' bluray release of Sailor Moon. Funny thing is, they were saying that Toei's remaster is better.  So I popped my Bluray in to compare to the images they put in.  They were almost identical...  There was some brightness/saturation differences, but brightness differences is due to the ntsc standard in Japan vs here.  Saturation could be any number of things, including having a messed up TV of mine.

Has anyone watch Durarara?  I remember seeing a lot of people cosplaying as this person:
 

I never knew what the anime's name was until I managed to find it just now.

I've noticed a disgusting number of people who trash Western releases of anime for no good reason. Yeah, a lot of anime gets terrible dubbing but there are plenty that are done very well and sometimes even much better than the Japanese original.

I've only caught bits and pieces of the anime and the only thing I know about it is the chick in that picture has no head. Like, she takes the helmet off and there is nothing there.

Thing that bugs me, is that Viz didn't have much to work with for their release, and from the looks of things, neither did Toei.  So they took their DVD master that Toei made from betas, upres'ed them and tried to filter it so it didn't look like dog.  The end result is something pretty decent and almost in line with most current cartoon restorations.  Is it as nice as something like Ranma?  No, but that company had the film reels to work with.  Not sure what the DVD portion of the discs are like though.  Those might have been scrubbed clean, and if they were I'd be disappointed with.  The Blurays though; are as good as we'll get.

I see this so often.  :o

On a different note, the really funny thing is when the character from the Japanese and English versions sound the same.  I think there is a character or two in Naruto that sound the same, but I'm not sure.  It's been a while.

The English VA and Japanese VA for Pegasus (Yugioh) sound and act identically.  It's scary.
