NANA (English Version)

So, I'm finally watching the English version of NANA. I've had it since it came out, but I've been too scared to watch it. Until tonight, when I randomly decided to watch it. (This is how most minor choices of mine are made: randomly.)

Anyways, I'm basing this on only the first episode, but I think it's pretty great. It was totally jarring, at first, don't get me wrong. And I'm sure I'll always prefer the Japanese version, because it's the one that I fell in love with. But there's no way I could dislike the English version. I mean, Barbie is in it. And I can honestly see how (so far, at least) the voices fit the characters. They don't match the Japanese version, but taking that away, I think it totally works. I could see myself adoring this version if it was how I first watched the show. But as it stands, I know it won't be torture to watch it, which was my fear. It's actually quite good, so I'm enjoying it for what it is. (Other than the changing around of ending songs, because that's just stupid. ~_~; )

And I want Kelly Sheridan's autograph. Like, seriously. <3

Edit: It feels like I'm starting all over again. Watching Hachi and Shouji... I almost like them together again! How bizarre. I guess that means everyone is doing a good job, right? You're supposed to like Hachi and Shouji until... yeah. This is very strange, but in a good way.
