Outsourced animation? This reminds me of an old GameFan review of this hilarious show that US anime translator ADV released called Tokyo Armageddon or something insane that was actually Korean-made...pure Koreanime MANIA from the penninsula...its number review score was "!!"

To this day I'm awed at the number of Korean names I see in the credits for Macross Plus, El Hazard, Naruto and so on.

I'm just glad the US was there to say, "Oh, you're making an anime, huh? We'll pay eleventy billion dollars to already have action figures and lunchboxes and soda tie-ins to the show a year and a half before it's out... Oh! Let's go ahead and make a movie of it and then plan on five sequels!"

Hooray for marketing. Hooray for 10,000x profits, and hooray for paying your employees just enough for them to sort of pay their rent and survive on a steady diet of ramen. Heh heh. It reminds me of the Excel Saga episode where Excel and Hyatt went to America and they ran into Sandora, who wanted to be an JAPANIMATION animator. He was talking about how he had heard they were all really rich and famous, and Excel and Hyatt just gave him a nervous, "Heh heh..."

Haha that reminds me of how Atari gave Stephen Speilburg $25 million for the E.T license, then told the one programmer to make a game in 6 weeks so they could cash in on the craze.
