Hey, I graduated away from college (grad school) quite a few years ago and I
still play Magic and D&D (on computers only...). In my opinion, people like
us are minority and the series won't become a mega hit if they are marketing
to us. On the subject of Magic and D&D, how many fellow GML'ers waste their
money and time on these 2 addictions too? I'd love to find/meet some new
players in the Silicon Valley area.

There's no doubt that Escaflowne would have to go through massive edits to make
it "suitable" for U.S. audiences, which guarantees that real anime fans would
be upset by the final product.

Nah, I doubt the American public will like anime style music too much. I
actually do like Yohko Kanno's work on Escaflowne, but don't like most anime/
J-pop music. I'd bet that most American kids would switch to another channel
when they hear Japanese lyrics.
