I must say after reading the first volume of the D manga, that he was right to select Takaki.

I didn't like the art myself. It's detailed and all, but it's just weird seeing these characters look so ugly when Hideyuki constantly describes them as beautiful in the novels.

Veoryn87:

Are you talking about the Count(I think that was his title)? Because if you are, then I agree. But I thought the rest of the main characters conveyed a prettiness without losing the dark and gritty atmosphere. I find that to be somewhat important, but admit it's a fine line to walk.

Of course things like art are completely subjective. Just like the varying preferences of it thereof. So please don't take this as me arguing with you. Wink

I was just meaning D and the girl (forgot her name) actually.

I know. I was just voicing my opinion, as you are voicing yours.

I myself enjoy the artwork related to the manga. It's not too traditional and stays true to the story and the characters in D's world. I look forward to the next volume and hope that I can get the first volume autographed from both of them Wink .

That's cool. I might actually go now, since my Amnesia and Wicked City dvds need autographing. It'd be nice if Kawajiri joined up, too, but he's probably still stuck on Ninja Scroll 2. Crying or Very sad

I wish I could go and see this for myself. I regard "Wind Named Amnesia" one of the most interesting and misunderstood anime films I've ever seen.
