    "It is my fault, and I am sorry. The source material should have been better and I've done a great burden"

    That breaks my heart.

    Sounds to me like they're making mangaka Daichi Sorayomi unfairly fall on his own sword for this. Why not just keep the manga if that's doing okay? (Or is that too much like common sense?)

    Man that statement is pretty brutal, he's taken all the heat for the adaptation. I honestly didn't think it was that bad.

    Arrow Video announcements for July include Kinji Fukasaku's New Battles Without Honour and Humanity and Kiyoshi Kurosawa's Pulse. More pertinently, Arrow Books will be releasing books by Tom Mes writing about Meiko Kaji and Andrew Osmond on Ghost in the Shell

    If nothing else, I would probably buy that for the cover.

    Yeah, nice cover. Who's the illustrator, I wonder?

    It's credited to Chris Malbon.

    He also did their covers for Takashi Miike's Black Society Trilogy and Kinji Fukasaku's Doberman Cop adaptation

    Sad to hear that about Keijo ;_;

    Edit: Some good news, Viz Media will be releasing the Splatoon manga ^^

    In this world, if you don't bring your A game you're only going to be left behind and out on your ass.

    We have yet to assess the fullest extent of the losses here.

    There's nothing to say here, the show was assassinated.

    Pretty amazing news in several ways. I never thought we'd see it as Viz should have first dibs on it and they seem loathe to let anyone else have things if they don't want it. Maybe they can prise Hayate x Blade off Viz at some point as well.
