I'm just past the big victory and even though it is an old show this story seems rather fresh. The only other show that I remember showing the aftermath with all its problems  was Gurren Lagann.

Also, I don't remember if I have asked this before but there is this one anime movie that I saw years ago and would like to find again. The Finnish translation of the name was something like "Eleventh passenger" but I don't know what the original name is.

The basic idea was that ten (I think at least, actually the number might be different) captain-cadets are going on a final exam of some galactic space captain school and the exam is done as a team. The ten cadets are sent onto a derelict ship and must survive a set amount of time there. There are some complications though with the ship being rigged to explode and the fact that there is one more person on the vessel than there should be. (The eleventh passenger. Or 12th or 9th if I misremembered their numbers.)

It was rather good movie and I liked the story and characters but can't seem to find it anymore. (Since it was shown in Finnish TV it must have had some spread outside of Japan.)

No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

There is light and darkness in the world, to be sure.  However, there's no harm to be had in walking in the shade or shadows.

It is a great show. Despite how ridiculous it is most of the time it manages to make some great scenes, some of which are even serious (although still way over the top.) It is easy to see that the Gurren Lagann crew did this anime as well.

And the Blumenkranz song is one of the best songs I've heard. It sounds epic and threatening (since it is being sung in German it sounds threatening to my ears which do not understand the language.) but when you read what the lyrics actually mean it is a rather touching and inspiring song.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:

There's a subbed version available if you don't want to watch it dubbed.

On the one hand, that explains both how they're able to cause and (in Vash's case) prevent such disasters. On the other hand, it somehow makes even less sense than the definition I was going with. Then again, I've never read the manga, so...yeah. And no, in the anime I don't remember

But no one appears to be seeding it.

Oh well, I'll also check if I can find it legally somewhere.

EDIT: Or I'll just watch it on Youtube.
