I don't know about face, but I certainly can't forget about a man who wears a neckerchief so confidently. I haven't seen that since Fred from SCOOBY DOO. Not many could pull that off. Bravo, sir.

You guys got to talk to some cool people. Glad to hear you enjoyed the conventions. Were you able to check out any of PERSONA 4 ARENA, or was that even there?

Inappropriate relationships often seems to be regular themes in GAINAX productions. It's weird how oddly appealing the complicated relationship between Misato and Shinji ifeels. Though these two are age wise chronologically different. They're emotional development is nearly the same. Misato is the only character that's openly expressive about caring for his well being. I look forward to seeing how the Rebuild franchise handles it.

Ero-manga is surprisingly diverse in the categories. I don't like the really violent ones. That really doesn't appeal to me seeing people forced. I like the ones that are more romantic comedies, such as SLUT GIRL, TAKE ON ME, and RING X MAMA. That's right, I read ero-manga for the story. TAKE ON ME is more romance/drama/comedy that's about these two people who love each other and their relationship that shows a lot of their graphic sex. Poeple aren't being forced. SLUT GIRL is all comedy and graphic sex.

What I find more interesting is that it's almost only the violent ero-manga/ero-games that are later produced into ero-anime. The romantic-comedies are almost never adapted into anime. That could make for an interesting editorial.

It really complements his old school WWF t-shirt.

It wasn't there. It was at E3, but I wasn't there to cover that show.

I'll leave to Sam. He's a hentai connoisseur.
