signs of hope
Jaquandor relates reason for anime geeks to take heart: A clerk at Target who knows quality when he sees it.
I did not buy Spirited Away, because I am under orders not to buy it so that my wife can pick it up for me at a gift-giving occasion. ...Scary thing was, I actually had to explain this to the checkout guy, who saw that I was buying Kiki's Delivery Service and Castle in the Sky and was stunned that I wasn't getting Spirited Away as well.
Enjoy the DVDs, Jaquandor; I'm sure you'll agree they're excellent.
