We slow things down for a moment to catch up with Fara and her date, Colin. It’s worth noting that when I was scripting this, I had about four or five different possible occupations for Colin. The one I went along with is probably the most unusual one, but hey, it works.

There are LOTS of references here. The “pretty major projects” he mentions are all spoofs on real titles. I had a bunch more, but these were the ones I liked the sound of best. Furthermore, Colin’s job itself is a little more subtle of a reference. CFX Video is a shout out to an older anime distributor from the late 90s to early 2000 called ADV Films (the name comes from moving every letter forward twice). I will be amazed if anyone caught that one before I mentioned it though.

But thumbs up and a pat on the back if you did catch it on your own.

Death Note and Fullmetal Alchemist are two of my all-time favorite animes. I haven't seen much of Dragonball Z but I liked what I've seen, and it's in the top 5 of some of my friends.

I foresee Rain initially loving the idea of Fara dating the person in charge of her favorite manga's adaptation, and then finding out the studio butchered it. Please note I am still on my first read-through and am well aware that I have over 100 pages before I catch up.

ADV Films? They weren't terrible, but I can't say I miss them.

those are some of my favorite anime, along with "Assault on Giant", "Predator + Predator", and "Single Fragment"
