True enough SD Maruko-kun. That is a perfect sunopsis of what actually happened. I'm simply hopeful that if it were to get rereleased that it might fare better than it did the first time around. I know I'd jump on it were Funi, Sentai, or NISA released it... especially if they released both seasons and both OVA series. This would all be especially awesome considering the impending "When They Cry - Outbreak" series.
No matter where you go, there you are.
