interesting, I hope they do a good job with them and don't rush. some of those series lend itself more easily to live action or film adaptation. For live action adaptation, i actually find most japanese versions to be quite lacking, they make it too much about the cosplay instead of just making a good movie/show.
what did you do at time warner? and good luck with interview tomorrow
