Guys, I’m actually buying an anime DVD this month. I don’t remember the last time that happened! I guess it was when I bought Welcome to the NHK and ended up being so annoyed by its awfulness that I haven’t seen anime since. Three years, I believe. That is quite a while. But someone recently messaged me on Twitter to inform me that this guy is coming to DVD in a couple of weeks:
Apparently the episodes are patterned closely after the manga, and have no terribly rendered CG helicopters. So that’s good. Of course, the real cherry (Grace) on this sundae of snipe is that a season of anime is 26 episodes long, so the series is being released in two sets of… 13 episodes. Of course.
I’m probably setting myself up for disappointment here, but I guess three years is about long enough for the bitter taste of anime’s inevitable wretchedness to fade away.
