“Akira happens to be something that Warner Brothers management loves. They see value in the franchise,” Lanzar told Collider.

Proof positive that Warner Brothers Management has their collective heads still too far up their own asses.

Seriously. AKIRA is over 20 years old. The boat on this has sailed long ago. Nobody cares or wants a live action AKIRA movie. It's over and done. Move on to something new.

This is what Shogo (one of PG's original contributors) has been up to. There may no longer be a pgaijin.com, but he is making some fine ambient music - Enjoy! : )

This Is Very Scary

Did I just see the 47 Ronin in there? Yep . . .

"Simple Anime" in Japan

I ganked this from Japan Probe, and no, I don't really *get* it, but it seems to me that someone's been watching a lot of Adult Swim . . .
