This is a shock! Usually I know of who's been using Amiga in the musical setting. I guess I'll have to go buy his Cds. ;)

Its a shame that there isn't a modern day Amiga-like platform. I don't mean a generic powerpc based platform that can run software written for AmigaOS, I literally mean a hardware platform that can process Video Graphics, Audio, Multimedia, in realtime!

Well, if you read yesterday's Freescale announcement, that does give some hope from the hardware angle..

EDIT and Add in the title the facts he worked for Berserk (the anime) and Millennium Actress the animated movie...

It will be of sure interest...

I have the Berserk - Box of War anime here and the Dreamcast game Sword of the Berserk. I don't have the manga it was based off though.

I think the closest you have today to that would be what Sony are doing with the next playstation.

What a pity... Anime is nothing if you could see the quality of manga stories.

Plots of Miura are fascinating. The story intrigues a lot.

He is also a perfectionist in armours!
(there is a voice over the net saying he owns a full reproduction of an italian 1500's armour in his japan little home)

And finally he depicts sieges very very well... with full of acting figures, and quality defence architectures.

The manga version explains a lot, but you do know of the new PS2 game coming soon? personally I'm more of a Hokuto fan but thats just me :)

Exactly, but isn't that always the case? I watched the anime and was puzzled about the ending/beginning (of the anime) until I read the manga.

And it shows!

I did not know about the PS2 Berserk game. It looks like information is quite sparse at the moment, but I will keep an eye on it. Thanks for the heads-up :)

I wish I had unlimited amounts of time. If I had I probably would read mangas, but I don't ;)

I wonder if AOS4.0 has a startup sound windowze-like...? AOS4 team could ask Mr.Susumu Hirasawa to make a specific startup sound for the Amiga...

I think that would be an amazing idea. Sort of an homage to how Andy Warhol promoted the original A1000.

Not much of a Berserk fan myself ... ¥Õ¥ê¥¯¥ê(furikuri) and S.A.C is more my sorta stuff, but it's a good thing none-the-less.

If your gonna read manga get the originals from Amazon.co.jp or Archonia.com, the translations tend to suck and it's not hard to read the originals with a decent dictionary and some basic Japanese ^_^.
