New Megazone 23 Animation Announced
This was just pointed out to me: http://www.animenewsservice.com/

6-5-05 (5:41AM EST)---- New Megazone 23 Animation Announced
Nikkei Characters Magazine issue no. 8 released May 25th in Japan has a mention that production has started up on a new Megazone 23 work. Aparantly returning will be the main characters including Eve and the transforming motorcycle Garland. Well known character designer Haruhiko Mikimoto (Macross) of the first series will return to design characters. Full details such as the nature (remake / sequel) or format (movie, TV / OAV series) were not disclosed.

I'd kind of like it if they ignored Part 3 and went from Part 2. I always thought 3 was kind of weak, and lower quality animation.

Dude, your little "stressed" icon is driving me batty! I picture you at your desk doing the same thing! lol

Now ... I thought you changed your name to MegaZone and then found out later it was an animated thing? I'm so confused! And now STRESSED thanks to your icon!

I pretty much AM doing that today - I'm fidgeting, can't do one task for long, easily distracted, stomach knotted up (still picking at my lunch)... bleh...

I got the name from the anime. MegaZone 23 Part 1 was the first video in my anime collection in 1988 or so. When I got to WPI in 1989 and needed a UNIX login I picked 'megazone' - then it became a nickname offline, and eventually my legal name.

Babe, understand that the more distracted you get, the more you are going to ger frustrated, the more you get frustrated the more you will have your tummy in knots.

Have you thought about calling it a day and going home? If you left now, got some dinner, then went to bed, you could get up early tomorrow and work a bit more to make up for it.

The more work you don't get done, the more time you are wasting and the more you will hate yourself for it in the morning.

Did you take that walk I advised?

That's because Part 3 is kind of weak, and has lower quality animation.
By the way, you *have* listened to the commentary track on ADV's release of Part I, right? Right?

Cool, I guess. I don't think I've actually watched Megazone to be honest.

BTW, Where in MA is Howl's Moving Castle showing? I've seen it advertised on Cartoon Network at least, so I figured it was a mainstream release and not just for a single theatre in Boston (unlike, say, Cowboy Bebop).

It is in limited release - I don't know if it will go wide or not. It is showing in two places in Boston last I checked - I think it was Kendall Sq. and one other place.
