I am PUMPED for this. I've never been a huge anime fan, but that one BR short was rad...I'll take any BR content I can get my hands on. So excited to revisit this world, and I agree with The Searcher in how amazing it is that this franchise continues to live on.
Okay, let me get this straight. There's this movie that, despite tanking in the box office, grows it's fan base over the years to the point that they make a sequel, which also tanks. And yet somebody's still saying, "Let's pour some more money down this hole."
I can appreciate there is some interest in this. Just like there was some interest in a Firefly movie. It's just seems that some franchises, beloved though they may be, just can't justify this much being spent on them. Hope y'all get what you want though.
Funny the sequel has had the effect on me that the more I watch it the better it gets too. I really wasn't taken on the baby from robot thing or the spinner rumblings but now I actually I kinda like it a lot.
