Uh... huh.

-_-

Well, better late than never? Though I can't say I particularly care. Will anyone, even those who enjoyed it originally, after all this time?

She might as well finish Ranma 1/2 while she's at it.

Funny, I don't remember seeing a "Nover" on my calendar.

Looks like she needs to finish a lot of things (i.e. InuYasha... for the love of God just give it an ending already and quit dicking around).

Well, according to a recent interview Inu-yasha should be ending sometime next year. She's still working toward a finale, but with all the sudden plot development in the manga recently it's easy to see that it can't go on for much longer.

I still haven't read One Pound Gospel, but hopefully Viz might release the last volume or so of material of it over here...

She did, but it's not the ending some thought it would be.


I wonder if One Pound Gospel will ever be animated...

Oh, I didn't know that. I guess I should have said if it will ever become an anime series.

I love both Ranma 1/2 and Inu-yasha... though I used to watch everything dubbed (haha, remember when they only had VHS tapes, and you had to choose between dubbed and subbed?), and when they changed the voice actor for Ranma in the middle of the series, I never actually finished it... I really hate when they do that.

My thoughts exactly.

At this point, does ANYONE care?

I mean, I did enjoy One-Pound Gospel, but, jeez, its been so long, does anyone even remember it, aside from the hardcore Takahashi fans?

I'll still read it, but if it sucks, bleh. Takahashi is good with her stories, she just SUCKS with endings. I'm worried for Inuyasha, very worried.

You've obviously never read Maison Ikkoku. Wink But yeah, she's said before that she basically makes up her stories as she goes along, hence the drawn-out nature and botched endings. Then again, I've never read Ranma or Urusei Yatsura to the end... (But in Ranma's case, how can anyone expect a conclusive ending for that? It's a mindless, episodic comedy.)

Or she leaves the endings open for the reader/viewer to draw their own ending. But yeah, the series is pretty old, even for the States.

Since Urusei Yatsura manga series never got finished in the States (Yes, I'm still bitter.), so the anime verison will do for now.
