Yeah! But Future Boy Conan is getting kinda old, and seeing the time
they're taking to release Mononoke Hime in your country, I think you can
dream on. :-(
As for Nadesico, it would be totally justified. IMO the show was OK (I
didn't like it that much but it was still good) but a friend who saw the
movie told me it was truly great!

Yeah, I think Gasaraki is finished, volume 5 (episodes 12 to 14) is
released this month on video. As for Cowboy Bebop, I thought
Animevillage would eventually bring it to USA, they really should, I
mean everyone around me has loved this show! (well, mind you they
managed to love or at least like Karekano :)))).
Among other recent things they should consider importing, I'd put Orphen
and those Change Getta Robo! oavs. I think the latter are in fact coming
to Europe through ADV (since it is a Dynamic production).

As you can see, most Animage readers dig Slayers, Eva and Nadesico,
you'll also note how Wing is now *before* TOS and Zeta. My only comment:
that sucks.
