Flame of Recca - which is currently the #1 show (animated or otherwise) in
the Philippines. Lupin III (the best animated series for me, frankly) is at
third currently. Telesuccess and Channel 7 is kicking Channel 2's ass over
the horizon. Mainly because the most experienced Seiyuu (Voltes and Yu-yu
vets) are with them - and most stay loyal even though they're paid
relatively small.

OT Side note: I've met the guy who played Steve (Kenichi) here - he's half
Jap and really LOOKS like Steve in his early forties. (Yeah, sonny... I beat
the Bozanians to smithereenees...)

>they've also shown some other weird stuff, like Captain Harlock.

That was an American version already - a merging of two series - Captain
Harlock and the Queen of Thousand Years. I have the subbed Captain Harlock
origin - better in Japanese anyday.

Really? Hmm. Maybe I should be more careful with my purchases then.
