This is a very difficult question. At first glance she has good check bone structure and plenty of t &a, but then you remember the fact thats shes REALLY old.

Then you gotta remember she was born in 1998, so if you think shes hawt, your a pedo. So it depends....are you a pedo Ryan?

I don’t believe this is the type of question you were looking for, though I wanted to ask you because I’m curious. When the series aired on Adult Swim it had many edits performed on it. Do you believe these edits had any serious effect on the quality of the episodes, or would you still believe people who watched them on that network got a good enough experience?

Believe it or not, most the editting of the series isn't from the series to the network as much as from Japanese to English. I own the dvds and they're biggest substitue is from the word "goddammit" pardon my french with "dammit". These are all found in english subtitles, though its important to remember subtitles are LITTERAL translations. The only real difference I can tell is that in the Adult Swim version there is a lot less blood. As far as quality wise, I don't believe that the series was hurt much, though I do believe that there was a lot of editting of the blood, when it could be helped.

It is also important to remember that during 9/11, they quit airring the "Cowboy Funk" episode for a few months, because the buildings that were bombed resembled the world trade center. However, it wasn't a detrimental edit to the show, but I definantly see it as being the worst edit to the series yet. I hope that answered your question Huntsman

[Adult Swim] also did not show "Waltz for Venus" during the first run. It aired during the second run, but "Cowboy Funk" did not initially run during the second run, much to the fans chagrin. "Cowboy Funk" did air a few days later. [Adult Swim] says that they made a mistake, but I don't think that was the case.

IMHO, the editing done to Bebop was wrong. The seven words that you can't say on network television aside, the blood that was edited out was just plain wrong. Over the years since Bebop first aired, other series like Wolf's Rain, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex have been shown almost completely unedited. GitS: SAC was only edited for the seven deadly swears and nudity in episodes 5 and 12. There was also one blood scene edited in episode 20. FMA had two early edits for excessive blood, but they seemed to show more blood spatter in later episodes.

And not that I think about it, they did edit a lot on Jupiter Jazz. There is a frontal of Gren removed, and also they tried to screen out the male on male sex shot when Faye had the gun on the guy, on AS, there was only the one man in the bed. But I do not believe it was detremental to the show, but it was taken out.

I laughed my ass off when I found out that a man had been edited out of that scene in "Waltz for Venus". I remember watching the episode the first time it was shown and thinking that the scene just wasn't right. There was way too much space between the bed and the guy. I figured a lady had been edited out.

That's funny. I watched the editted version before the uneditted and I remember thinking to myself, is he humping the bed?
