Ergh! I am still not able to get my hand on the Image magazine.
But since I am monitoring tw.bbs.rec.comic (the equivlent of
rec.arts.anime.misc), I had a few exchange with several of Image's
principles. I am not sure if the quote is from AIplus. But if it was
him, he is currently(last I heard from him this summer) resides in
Cambrige, Mass. attending MIT for graduate degree in physics.
Further away from Japan compare to us Californians. ^_^

But I agree, as Gundam fans, the people who are with Image(and
the defunt Magic Zone) are really cool people. Except maybe TP,
who is a feddie.
