It's not just an anime-styled character. It's Wolfwood, in the exact same pose as a Trigun promotional image. They didn't try to hide their theft at all. The only thing they changed was the expression on Wolfwood's face, to make it more sinister.

Wow...that...wow...they're actually going to use that? That's not a joke? Are they paying Geneon royalties for using Wolfwood's image? Are they really sinking that low in their ad campaign?

Hweh...my head hurts...

Low?

Naw, low was the Bush = Hitler a few months back. The use here is probably a coincidence.

Hm. Good point.



EDIT: Minor source of off-topic amusement, but there've been four straight posts all by people from Georgia. Dunno why, just seems kinda funny. Razz

And so many people care about whether or not fangirls get pissed.

Especially in the government.
