    For a second, I was thinking you were talking about another "BECK". ;)

    No, I was posting this news for the anime fans that are here on the board.

    I read some reports on the movie that they're reducing Koyuki's role and focusing more on Ryusuke(Hiro Mizushima). I don't really like that. I love the Koyuki/Maho relationship in the anime and then in the manga and I don't really see that having much focus if you're de-emphasizing Koyuki's role in the movie. Plus Maho is pretty awesome so anything which as a byproduct means less screen time for her sucks.

    I've also watched about 5 or 6 dramas that Hiro Mizushima has been in and I'm not really sure how he'll be as Ryusuke. He has a tendency to severely overact and put your mind 'off' the show you're watching just by his performance IMO.

    Me too. Got my hopes up. Every week, Mythbusters tries out a new way to horribly murder Glenn Beck. License to print money. :bolian:

    Well, I thought the music in BECK was a bit better than Beck's...if that sentence makes any sense. Well, the English version, anyway. The original songs are good, but they're in Japanese accented English. The dub redid the songs with native speakers. I usually don't approve of this but it worked with this series. :)

    Yeah, that would be quite disappointing if true. Their relationship was the best part of the show. Also hopefully the actors they get can actually play the various instruments.
