Quotes

[Kyusaku stares grimly at the charred fish Akiko cooked]
Natsume Akiko: I had to cook the fish a lot to make sure it was dead.
[Kyusaku glances over to the natto covered in ketchup]
Natsume Kyusaku: Cooking's not the same as murder! And you don't need to put ketchup on natto.
Nuku-Nuku: [opens the rice cooker] Look at this! The rice is perfect. I even smell a hint of lemon.
[beat]
Nuku-Nuku: Why do I smell lemon?
Natsume Kyusaku: What did you use to wash the rice?
Natsume Akiko: I washed the rice with lemon-scented dish soap.

Alternate Versions

In the mid-1990s, a UK video label known as Crusader Video, produced an English dub with regional British accents used for the characters. It was edited for nudity and sexual references. In 2003, a newer dub was produced by ADV Films in the US, with a few characters ironically sporting southern-US accents. This newer dub is unedited and was released on DVD in both the US and the UK.

I loved it!
8 January 1999 | by CoelinaSee all my reviews

This is still my favourite Anime to date, and I have seen a lot. One for the cat lover, and possibly the cyborg lover. If you haven't seen it, go for it!
