Ohhh, that's a nice thing to see. I wonder if they could adopt another that involves around The Rise and Fall of Sega.

It was a really good book, so hopefully the show does it justice.

The chapter on the production of the Mario Bros movie alone made it worth reading.

This sounds interesting. I have to admit that the novel style of this book didn’t work for me, it often made it hard to take it serious as the well-researched and insightful work it is, and I would have enjoyed it much more if it wasn’t a fictionalized retelling of a real story.

I remember reading this book years ago. Looking forward to how this turns out.

Am I the only one to be mildly frustrated by the six-button Sega controller on the cover art featuring only three buttons? One would have assumed that the book's target audience consists of the very people who would notice such a detail.

That is the Genesis 3 button controller that came out with the system at launch. 6 button came out much later. The three button has a start button in a different position than the 6 button.

David Production could have done better with Hyperdimension Neptunia: The Anime, but I can't say that I'm more excited to see this movie than I was that.
