    In big USA Animu news just hit a day/two ago, companies around the Macross US/International licenses finally stop acting like a bunch of babies (after 20+ years) and did an agreement for Macross international distribution.

    It is only a matter of time The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love? will be on BD disks for collectors in the US at least.

    Just finished Black Lagoon season 1, 2 and the Roberta O.V.A.

    It is in the "Cowboy Bebop" league. Fuck, for a short anime it packs a punch.

    The way Rock develops into a scheming villain without ever having to pull a trigger is something else. Nobody is innocent, but the truly evil are the characters who move the pawns and hold the cards. Whatever Rock's motivation may be, he reminds me of Shar/Hisoka kind of villains.

    In the end even Revvy almost finds him too dangerous...

    Just found out. Sorry busy days in the city.

    His drawing and story-telling were pure art. I am a spoilt brat when it comes to comics and books because reading a good story was better than dealing with my disfuncional family. (I liked an empty library more than my family home, I still do.) Reading "Berserk" was a definite highlight throughout the years.

    Getting the "Berserk" manga collection will now be a future priority.

    In honour of Kentarou Miura.

    Anyone here watching To Your Eternity?

    Thinking about picking it back up, seemed to have a decent first episode. Wasn't sure if it would maintain that quality.

    Honestly if it follows the manga then you'll be in for a heck of a ride. I haven't seen the anime yet but stills look promising.

    I'd much rather have a Sousou no Frieren anime adaptation though-- love that one.

    Such a cultured person, as a fellow fan of Frieren, I tip my fedora.

    I'm a sucker for character-driven stories, and if anything the demanour demons in this universe have is what cemented things for me-- it was already doing a lot very well but the somewhat atypical approach Frieren takes to the episodic story arc and just the scale of otherness beings in the story give off is well-done.

    Ah, and the lighthearted comedy is a pleasure :p

    Agreed, plus Frieren is super cute, which only makes me enjoy reading more and more. I actually like the characters, it's felt too long since I cared about characters in manga. Maybe Chainsaw Man or Holyland was the last time I cared about manga characters.
