    Keroro Gunsō/Sergeant Frog

    Surprised that a thread hasn't been made about this series yet. I thought it was pretty good manage to catch a few episodes on Youtube recently. Wonder if anyone else have seen it.

    Gist of the story: Gunso is the leader of a group of frogs that were suppose to infiltrate and take over Earth. However, due to some reason their brigade or army decide to abandon his group while they were still on the mission. Gunso infiltrated this one household where they took him in. Single mother is a editor at a comic studio, and the daughter and son are students. Gunso is suppose to be finding his comrades and taking over Earth, but ends up being occupied with surfing the net, doing house chores and building Gundam models. Humor ensues.

    Pretty funny stuff, definitely a breath of fresh air for me. However pace is quite fast and I have trouble catching up with the subs. Maybe I'm just rusty.

    I know what you mean there Legend, the Sergeant and his squad doenst get the attention that they deserve. I'm guessing its mainly due to the fact that they're frog like aliens thats invaded only the manga media in the US...the anime series took a while to get a guessed date of release. But....THE WAIT IS NEARLY OVER!! According to wiki they say that its probably due out Feb '08...but now they say that its not really an "official" date and their guess is sometime in the first quarter of '08. Either ways, its about time that the Sgt made his way overseas. How else was he planning to conquer the Earth!?

    Personally I really enjoy the manga, even in the English versions. (o.O) They still manage to keep most of the humor intact and still keep things flowing within the story. Still some otaku references that get overlooked but hey, theres a limit to what they can do for translations. As you say its rather "fresh". Definitely out of the ordinary.

    Keroro Gunso also took an award at the Tokyo International Anime Festival for Best TV series... ADV Films currently has the Region 1 license for this series, but no announced released date. I'm reserving room in my Anime budget for this when it does come out...

    I'm just really surprised, since I do not follow closely to which animes are released in the US and stuff. As a result I didn't know that Sergeant Frog is still not out. It was one of the more widely pushed animes back at the Anime Expo, the mascot on the badges were Gunso, and there was an actual Gunso parading around and such. That's why no thread has been created yet...cuz they were promoting Black Lagoon at the same time and it was out almost a month later or something.
