Unbudging Facts

An English-language fandom operates in English, no matter what the original language may have been. OK, fine, I understand. I'll just say, if it were anywhere indicated on the covers of the Soul Hunter DVDs that the thing is actually Houshin Engi, I'd have been watching it six months ago. It's pure accident that I decided to look at the first disk. And as I find the manga impenetrable in French and thus probably in Japanese as well, all to the good that I have the anime; though I seem to recall some dissatisfaction with it in various quarters.

Meanwhile congrats to incandescens and nojojojo, and hippo birdies to mvrdrk. Go you-tachi.
