Speaking of Giant Robo (one of my favorite series), I just want to know if they are ever going to animate an episode 8 (or 9 or 10) the story of the "The night the Earth Stood Still" was awesome, but I think the conclusion of the whole Interpol/Big Fire conflict would be totally out of this world. Given Yasuhiro Imagawa's style, this could be a real climax.
