Well as long as they saved the manga...wait. lol.

Well I'm glad everyone is ok. Flash flood eh? Well that sucks for them. Hope they get back to work and everything as soon as possible and this doesn't mess those guys up. I also feel for anyone who's house now has a lot of flood damage, or worse...Lot's of time homeowners insurance or whatever doesn't cover flood damage...

At first I thought it said that Viz shut down and I almost had a heart attack.

I would go apesh*t bananas if that happened. Overflowing manholes? Sounds stinky inky.

If Viz and Funimation got shut down, I would have had a heart attack. But as long as the flooding didn't effect the inside of Viz's HQ, then everything will be alright, hopefully.

This probably won't make my "on order from manufacturer" Kenshin VIZBIG volumes come any faster. ^_^;;

Hopefully everyone affected by these floods can manage.

I wonder what their boss was like when he noticed the flood. He probably yelled something like: " Save the manga and anime first, then the women, kids and elderly... lol

I hope every one made it out ok, I mean flooding can be pretty bad even if it doesn't enter the buildings.

Wow... I had no idea it was that bad, I had heard about, man... that was a lot. It really poured hard... so much that the water going down my street barely went into the drain... it was just like a small river.

At least we know about Viz' core values:
Save the Manga first.
Women & children can walk can't they.
Anime? What anime?

Looks like Whitebeard's abilities were too much for a manga panel to hold up. Good that everyone and their manga titles were safe.
