Are you old enough to have ever used dBase III/IV or Paradox? My 1-2-3 is less than 10 years old and it can still do a better job than the latest Excel. MS tried to copy 1-2-3 and did a lousy job of it. Only their OS preeminence made their crap marketable.
Sigh, ageism. The lame attempt to make oneself superior to others because they think they've gone around the sun a few more times.
Age doesn't necessarily preclude one from having used old programs. I unfortunately have used those. Some people have an unfortunate tendency to cling to the outdated technology that they know rather than embracing the superior more modern technology (something you obviously understand).
In case you haven't been paying attention, I have HUNDREDS of anime series and movies on DVD, Blu-ray, LD and VHS. I also have several THOUSAND movies and TV shows. I haven't had time to watch everything.
So? That's hardly unique, having a great many titles on home video in a thread about collecting. Since you're making claims of your advanced age, you should have had plenty of time to have watched the backlog. There's little excuse for the ancient items in your backlog, the ones on laserdisc and VHS. Ageism
BTW, I think a great disservice has been done to humanity by those who believe that spreadsheets should be used to contain simple databases. Spreadsheets crunch numbers. If you're using it to simply contain a giant list of anime series you own...why?!!
As they say on the interwebs, "Ur doin' it wrong".
Ouch. That dub could have been a LOT better. Dammit Funimation, you hit it out of the park with War on Geminar and now it sounds like you're striking out with this.
Funimation has a history of not being able to properly do comedy. They can't really do pervy either, so when it came to a pervy comedy they should have just left this one for Sentai to pick up. I mean, Goldenboy. Need I say more?
Jamie Marchi has made her mark in anime playing irreverent, happy-go-lucky characters who may or may not be vacuous but who are always overtly sexual 100% of the time. This character, Rias, is not exactly that.
Rias is half Hime, the cold, calculating and conniving borderline dominatrix woman from Princess Resurrection and half Belldandy from Oh My Goddess!.
Rias acts like Issei's mom at times, going from badass to demure at the drop of a hat, which is hilariously creepy, but outside of the normal fare for Marchi. Marchi plays a similar character in War on Geminar but her character has an "older woman, younger guy" quasi-Mrs. Robinson thing going on, which is completely different than Rias' trend of becoming motherly as Marchi's character in War on Geminar doesn't turn off the sexuality, ever, while Rias does.
Who directed this?
It's only a few bits from the first episode. I will allay my judgement Until I see it as a whole. It might take an episode or 2 for the actors to get in stride with the characters. Look at the Dusk Maiden dub as an example, it took Emily Neves, Clint Bickham and Jessica Boone about 2-3 episodes before they got comfortable with the characters (Although Brittney Karbowski was knocking it out of the park with Okonogi the whole time.)
