Yup yup.

Or how about this guy? Sure looks familiar:

I've already watched the entire series a few months ago, but finally jumped on this DVD set for my collection, plus it being in French means I can show it to my mom. :D

Great anime series there, F-Man. Among my top 5 favorite anime of all time. I just wish there was a proper English release for it.

I never made the connection there between Reichwein and Ochanomizu! They do look quite a bit alike.

I've been thinking it would be a perfect title for that upcoming Kickstarter-for-anime website.

Did you mean to say Shunsaku Ban? And here's a picture of him from Urasawa's Pluto:

Isn't the writer of the Pluto manga the creater of Monster?

Yeah. Naoki Urusawa created both of those manga.

I know it's already streaming legally on Anime News Network and Hulu already, so I'm not so sure. I suppose getting more publicity for the series wouldn't hurt though. ;)

Yes, you're right. I got their names mixed up. :blush: Actually, I tend to call him Higeoyaji since that is what he's called more often in the anime. I forgot about his real name.

Anyway, it's kind of interesting how he reused that character model for Pluto. I've got to get around to reading that manga sometime.

Yeha Viz only released the first 15 episodes ... and some volumes from there manga release are also out of print i can pick up the manga in Dutch which is better than French for me but i wished Kaze would finally bring out the French version with Dutch subtitles like they do with many of there series manga isn't a problem for me in French but Anime isn't going to work yet ...

I've been buying up Stephen King's Dark Tower books.

I just bought DVD sets of Space Ghost Coast to Coast and The Brak Show. With my first debit account. And this will be the last time I spend money on my debit account on useless but much needed stuff.

Dragon Ball Season Four, or as we would call it in the Dragon Ball fandom, "the fourth blue brick". I just need one more to own all of the original Dragon Ball anime!
