“I thought in the spirit of Mother’s Day I’d show everyone this little gem I found in one of my old albums. I don’t remember when this was taken, but by the looks of it, it’s pretty old!” The snail giggled. “Mama looks so pretty here, doesn’t she? And there’s me as a little snail… ~ Aren’t I adorable?”
The snail gave a little sigh, putting the picture back in between the crinkled pages. “I miss her…I hope she likes the present I send her this year.”
Nice example of why the anime was great.
Such a loveable jerk :3
Gotta love it every time he showed up.
…Perching on top of something to compensate for his height while a Spanish guitar riff played.
(Also I think I put too much swearing in my old subs! Yeesh, wish I could fix that)
Man I have been feeling super nostalgic for Kirby lately *_*
Hard to believe the series is over 20 years old and the anime came out over 10! I started watching my first year of college and got hooked like ya wouldn’t believe. I still maintain it’s the best anime ever. Just a perfect combination of humor and drama without taking itself too seriously, creative character designs and catchy music.
And one of the characters is a gay purple snail that is in love with a 300 year old penguin.
YOU CANNOT BEAT THIS. :|
I’ve even softened on the 4kids dub in recent years. It’s still inferior but eh it wasn’t THAT bad compared to other shit they did. (One Pieeeece…)
I recommend everyone watch at least the first three eps! The CG hasn’t aged well but the regular animation is very smooth.
I fansubbed the first 66 or so (of 100) episodes, I imagine most of them are up on youtube by now. (Or you can download em here apparently http://www.kirbysrainbowresort.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=241485 )
Unfortunately I got burned out and had to stop. Subbing an episode a week for a year pretty much alone will do that to you! Sometimes I’d like to start up again but my Japanese has gotten rusty :T I had a great guy helping me out last time but I’ve lost his info! Nooo… I think some other people have done a few though.
