Great collection of images... this stuff from Takemiya is so lovely. Would love to see this (and other titles by Moto Hagio) come out from Vertical eventually!

@ryan: I agree, but I don't think it will happen soon. I remain hopeful though!
@m: It is surely a sign from the Gods! Tack, jag har läst lite av det lilla som finns scanslerat och sett animen men för det mesta har jag bara haft ögonen på alla bilder :)
@Miss Nas: I agree!
