Great to see the staff returning and not having the constraints of the TV series. I just hope they don't base the sequel on the mobile game and actually stick with what made the series so good.

An anime-related fact appeared in the QI-related podcast No Such Thing as a Fish yesterday. The fact was that over 80% of Japanese temples suffer from raccoon damage. This was because in 1977 the anime Rascal the Raccoon popularised the animals which are not native to Japan, so people imported them from America to keep as pets. However, raccoons are bad animals to keep as pets, as is revealed in the original book the anime was based on, so people released their raccoons into the wild. These raccoons are now a major pest and imports of raccoons are now banned. (Fact begins 29:42 in)

Crazy to think Yukimura started Vinland Saga in his 20's and will probably be close to 50 by the time it ends! Excited to see what he does after VS.
