A 4:3 aspect ratio is not widescreen, or letterbox.
In other news, all that I was able to catch up on last night was sleep. I pretty much showered, ate and slept until 2am (so much for fixing that sleep schedule). I then proceeded to watch some more Kenshin until dawn. I did try going back to sleep a bit since I was going in to work "late". Unfortunately, no one else got the memo so going in "late" meant that I only got to "sleep in" a grand total of 30 minutes before I got my first call of the morning and I had to go deal with stuff.
I finally broke down and found some good deals on Evangelion DVDs. We'll see just how big of a difference the regular subs are compared to the fan subs. If nothing else, the versions that I bought come subtitled in English, French, & Spanish so I could conceivably switch to one of the other subs if I'm having trouble understanding something... this may or may not help, but I'm really curious to see just how good the funsubs are relative to the normal ones. In all honesty, I have no problem paying for stuff like movies/tv series/music if it's not crap (although I also have no problem paying as little as possible for things too ;).
Oh, and there is the fact that I really really really want to watch the last couple of episodes (grrrr-argh, flakey people suck).
So does anyone have any recommendations for good anime I need to check out?
(I'm rapidly running through my current supply ;)
