    Kon's work is stellar in my mind. Haven't seen anything by him yet that has disappointed.

    Looks like a animated DREAMSCAPE type of movie from the preview.

    Can't. Wait.

    by David Lazarus Long

    Just finished going through Paranoia Agent for like the 5th time. Might watch Toyko Godfathers again tonight. <p> Oh... and chicks are way overrated. Anime delivers much, MUCH more consistent results ~_^ (costs less, too!) <br> ...but girls are fun sometimes. =D

    It's fantastic...

    by workshed prepared to be blown away by some of the most incredible anime ever seen. See it on a big screen, obviously. p.s. I can't believe more people haven't shown interest in this contest - having this poster would be a magnificent addition to anyone interested in anime and having it signed by Con is the icing on an extremely trippy cake.
