    Yeah, little late. Had some technical difficulties on my end.

    I was skeptical about Astro Boy, but my brother convinced me to go and it turned out to be really good. It’s like Pixar did an anime style movie, and I would put it up there with The Incredibles.

    Awesome news about Utada Hikaru, but why did you keep pronouncing her name “Hikari”?

    Because I record at 6 in the morning after being up all day and night working on the site. Whee, retarded moment~ @_@

    Oh. Hee hee ^_^

    Anyway, I ordered my tickets online (NYC). Yay! Sounds like they’re selling out fast.

    You forgot to mention that the saber figure has a semi transparent skirt so people can look at her pantsu, lolz.

    As for manga industry, the reason for decline isn’t cos of piracy or the fansub thing(if anyone thinks its that). Its the fact that people are getting tired of reading the manga with the same thing and the same situation.

    Pick Shonen Jump for example. As i read Shonen Jump mag, they turned from awesome to meh. I dunno it just feels sad seeing my favourite manga just starting to bore me.

    I know what you mean Destructorv2, I feel the same way about alot of manga. Like how Jack Frost Manga is like…an exact copy of Hellsing with different names and in a new location.

    I miss being the first to comment on iStalk, but it gives me something to do when I get home from work 😀
