When the new updated version came out, I only saw the first one. It was like these things were important to me as a kid, and definately had their influence on me, but as an adult it didn’t have the same impact. I see movies as works of art. They shouldn’t be changed once completed. It would be like Leonardo DaVinci touching up the Mona Lisa 20 years after because he bought some new brushes. When they are updated in this way, it cheapens the original. I hope when the first trilogy comes out on DVD, it will be possible to buy the original instead of the digitally tweaked version, because it was the original that had its impact on me.
I forget the university, but someone wanted to use the strip in an anime club recruitment campaign. If you’re the person who E-mailed me, please tell me how it went.
