GOD i forgot all about how tenchi if was pitched as ai... and they said fuck that and went to negishi... who hasn't touched tenchi since ova 1...
Well, excuse me for thinking that Ai was bad enough already... now I see it in a MUCH worse light.  That's actually news to me; I didn't even know that Kajishima actually tried to pitch IF to AIC and then they said "nope, we're doing Ai instead".  Knowing that we actually could have gotten an anime based on IF for the 20th anniversary makes Ai that much more of a cancer to society in my book.  Of all the things AIC has done to basically spit on Kajishima, this one's going down as my biggest personal "What the FLIP were they thinking?!" moment.   :doom:

KADOKAWA PLS-

*Place massive wall of text that is too big to quote in its entirety but makes complete sense here*

And don't forget everything else that Negishi was allowed to do even after Universe and GXP in his attempts to flush Kajishima's vision down the toilet... *cough*aitenchimuyo*cough*

But yeah, this is exactly why I've been saying for a long time now that Kadokawa needs to decide "@#$% it, we're gonna take Tenchi out of AIC's hands", and why they need to do so ASAP.  Corporate meddling ends badly for everyone, and it's very clear that AIC is just being a bunch of corporate meddlers at this point.

I need to read your GXP stuff sometime. That's the area of the lore that I'm weak on.

What was some of the other stuff you did for the novels, ANB? I think I remember you said you got them to keep the honorifics, and I saw the surnames were first on the back cover.

I'm real excited!

Yes, honorifics are all there, including brother/sister ones. And surnames are first. I'm very thankful the editorial staff at Seven Seas agreed to this. You'll see "House Masaki" rather than "Masaki House" because I think that's how fandom mostly has done things, going off the Dune pattern for royal Houses. And it was my preference as well. I kept names spelled the way we would expect.

BTW, in addition to all of the illustrations being there (and the color ones are in color), there's an interview at the back of the book, which I don't think I was ever aware of before. Actually, it is more of a conversation between Kajishima-sensei and Kuroda-sensei. So that was quite interesting to me.

So am I, although I'll have to wait a couple more months because of financial complications. :(

I thought it was already common knowledge that AIC were sketchy buggers. Ultimately they're still a company out for profits like all others, so make what you will of that.

What you describe sounds similar to Battered Wife Syndrome.

You're welcome. Hopefully, I did it justice. :-)
