I don't know about you, but I think this series looks awesome. I am a big anime fan and play alot of RPGs just for the art design. I think the tv series might be a bit better than the actual game it's based on, though the game isn't THAT bad... The complete series is being released on DVD on January 26th, so I am getting pretty excited.
And lets not forget about Ninokuni! The game is still on my radar, and is actually the one game I'm most looking forward to, even though we haven't got any major news on it. I adore Hayao Miyazaki's work and am thrilled with the idea of a Miyazaki RPG, especially on the DS. I don't care if its easy and geared towards a younger crowd, much like the film Ponyo which was still spectacular, I'm going to play it regardless.
All this anime talk has got me thinking...wouldn't it be cool if Joss Whedon made an anime film with the Firefly/Serenity characters?
I'd also like to see an anime film from Quentin Tarantino, because one of my favorite parts in Kill Bill is the anime scene. I think that would be sick.
Anyways, I can't wait for Sands of Destruction. I also think this is a fantastic idea, to make tv shows based on DS games. I would love to see an anime film or series based on Magical Starsign or even Disgaea. That would be hilarious.
