>Earlier today, famous anime and manga artist, Kiyohiko Azuma, met an untimely death in a traffic accident in Tokyo, Japan. Three victims total, with two in urgent care, died...
mindless gibberish about the other four dudes of no importance.
>Kiyohiko Azuma was most notable for his creation, the four panel manga strip (yonkama), Azumanga Daioh, which was adapted into an anime of 130 5-minute episodes (later compiled into 26 25-minute episodes). Other of his more notable works include "Wallaby" and "Yotsuba&".
>Despite Azuma's wishes for "Yotsuba&" to remain unanimated, MediaWorks (publisher) claims ownership over the unfinished manga, and they have not shown the same interests as Azuma.
>"It is my belief that 'Yotsuba&' is a series that our fans and others would like to see in a new light," said Tsuguhiko Kadokawa (President of MediaWorks) "We believe that we (could) attract a larger audience to this beautifully orchestrated series by bringing it (into) animation..."
>MediaWorks has already announced production in cooperation with J.C. Staff (studio that animated "Azumanga Daioh") to begin in May, a month after merging with ASCII.

Well played, anon.

Lies. All lies.
I almost fell for this.
Anon is so naive...

This shit happened only today. You really expect some japanese entertainer to be famous enough to get that many articles in english?
Wow, did you actually write out all that?
As if they would write a death article without mentioning Azumanga.
Uso da. Masaka. Bakana.
Respecting peoples death wishes.. oops, nope lol
It wasn't a death article. It was about the production of Yotsuba Anime more than anything else. Read it yourself.
NOT OUR PRECIOUS 404 GIRL!
I didn't check the name before I went to it.
sage for hacker site

Hey, I was wondering if you just lost the game. was actually in any way truthful because ps3 sucks, huegbox 360 pounds sucks and only if you want to be like the g2b/jp/

Nope. I'm not that nice.
I once saw an excellent flash of Rena screaming "USODA!" to the tune of Tunak Tunak on that same site. I'm too lazy to lurk, but I'd post it for you otherwise.
If anyone wants it, I found it after some lurking.
