stone/nogne-o/jolly pumpkin have announced their first collaboration and very limited edition season release, the Special Holiday Ale. too bad FL isn't one of the states getting some of the stash ;_;
got to dvd 5 of speed grapher and it's pooched. now i gotta dig through my bag of receipts to find my receipt from AWA. now i gotta remember who/which table i bought it at. first i thought i got it from the FUNi table, but now i think maybe i didn't. this is going to be one big pain in my butt. if i can't find the receipt, i have a feeling it is going to be a battle with FUNi since their response so far has been less then stellar in terms of customer service.
Broccoli USA is closing their business. gee, color me not surprised ~rolls eyes~
be afraid, be very very afraid.
i do NOT want a remake of Robotech, or even Macross for that matter. can't they just leave well enough alone and let the classics lie in rest in their kingdom of cinema awesomeness. really. instead of a Robotech theatrical feature, i'd love to see Macross: DYRL get a license and a properly subbed dvd release.
Haruhiko Mikimoto, the original character designer for Macross will be back with pen and paper in hand to personally head the tentatively scheduled and planned new Macross manga. w00t!!! :D
