What's even worse is the game for the PS2, which insulted me as a fan of the show, and as a gamer. There is also a 2nd manga, Orphen MAX which never made it over here. It's a 2 volume story that stands on it's own, and (unfortunately) doesn't continue the hanging plot left at the end of the original manga.
I really wish the novels got fan translated, but at least we got the anime.
Ha! I have that game!
I loved the series overall and felt for it as I do the slayers series, the characters were memorable and fun, I didn't care of plot too much as long as they got some development and argued a lot along the way.
Favourite scenes of all time:
1. Cleo and Orphen wake up in the bed together, the argument that follows. "Huh? Is this too much noise for you, HUH?!" -died laughing.
2. The Orphen clones! Magick throws a coin and Orphen a actually fights them for the coins instead of running away. R-O-F-L! Xd
