Ok, before I post what I have planned to post, let me say that I am not new to these boards, I know that if I use the search function that there is probably a few threads about this show, so please don't post links to them. I do have a legitimate reason for starting a new thread, so just hear me out. My friend has been talking about this show nonstop and has all the episodes on his computer. I have never seen the show before, so instead of spoiling a lot of the plot by reading an old thread, I decided to start a new thread (also, I'm hopeful that there are other fans of the show that are just dying to talk about it with a virgin viewer). I've only made it to episode two as of this post (for those of you who aren't good with episode numbers, Spike's lost the bounty on both the "red-eyed coyote" and Akheem at this point. He's also "adopted" the dog Akheem had stolen. The only thing I know about the dog is that he's a mutt, but he's a "data dog". So if you are going to spoil the show, please use the spoiler codec that SHH so graciously provides (if you are new to the board or just are in the dark, the spoiler codecs are [ spoiler ] and [ /spoiler ], without the spaces inbetween the word and the brackets of course). I figured the writers specifically mentioned that it is a "data dog" for a specific reason to be revealed in a later episode, although I could be mistaken. So as of now, Spike has lost two bounties and obtained the "data dog". I'm off to watch some more episodes because I am now hooked. I rank this up there with Fullmetal Alchemist and I've only seen two episodes so far (VileOne, if you end up reading this post, you'll understand what I'm talking about since me, you, and guitarsingerguy had that entire thread about FMA...ahhh, if only that series were longer...*sigh*). By the next time I check this thread/the next time I post in this thread, I'll have watched at least up to episode six, so lets get some discussion going! So far, I'm extremely impressed, and if I'm going to get into an anime, I'd love some fellow anime junkies to discuss the show with t: . So lets get it going!
