In West Linn, eh. I wonder if I'll be able to recognize where you were shooting, as West Linn (much like Clackamas Community College, where some earlier shooting was done), is practically in my back yard.

From personal experience - as a general rule of thumb, don't heat bread in the microwave. Heat it in some kind of oven, either convection or conduction. Only sorrow lies in the path of microwaved bread.

Oh, and one more thing, my first anime in general wasn't Akira, it was Demon City Shinjuku - or rather the first 10 minutes of it (I had to turn it off as my parent's frowned on me watching that sort of violence). To my 10 year old brain it was mind-blowing, as I hadn't checked the TV schedule, so it looked like I was coming at the climax of the film, and it looked like the good guy lost! Then I realized that there was more to the film, and it was just the beginning. I didn't get to finally watch the whole thing until last year, and I wasn't too disappointed.

To my knowledge, Do You Remember Love never got a legit US release. Hell, until relatively recently, if we wanted Macross we were stuck with season 1 of Robotech. The fact that the rights for SDF Macross in Japan were (and still are) tied up in more knots than (insert analogy here) doesn't help anything any. That's also why we'll never get licensed versions of Macross Zero, Macross Seven, and Macross Frontier.

Well, on the bright side, the phonebook anthologies are coming out of print, thanks to Kodansha USA who is publishing them for the company's 150th anniversary (Kodansha in general, not the US Branch), so hopefully the price will go down.

My first exposure to Akira was on the Sci-Fi Channel back when they showed anime on Saturday mornings. And anyway, for those who hadn't read the manga, just to let you know - the end of the film is the halfway point of the manga, and the manga has some significant differences. (And being that it's Wil's blog, I'm not spoiling it without his permission).

Being that I live in Oregon, weather like you're describing, this time of year, unfortunately doesn't lead to amusing and ironing DEATHSTORMWATCH OF DOOM Coverage. It leads to "It must be Wednesday" Now, 2 inches of snow on the other hand, and everything just shuts down. ;-)

Well, if you want to find even more favorible discussion elsewhere on the web of this episode, RPG.net's forums has some discussion as well (though I don't know if Wil knows about it already - once upon a time he lurked, though I do not believe he ventured into the dread Feywild* that is Tangency, where Screefice lurk, tempting unwary passers by with mango tea and pie...) *Not that I think he'd have a any problems, being that I've heard tell some smoky and unnamed tavern in a far corner of Creation that he is rumored to be a Celestial Exalted, a Solar, I've heard tell, though none have seen his Anima Banner, and thus know which Caste he is (though it was suggested that he might be of the Dawn or the Night Caste...)** **I'd like to take a moment to apologize for that sillyness and return you to your regularly scheduled blog comments.
