Hey man, did you watch the first episode of blue period? The plot is very promising but the animation/direction is pretty mediocre.
I decided to read the manga, I'm already at chapter 7 (the serialization is monthly so each chapter is around 48-50 pages long). I recommend.
Just saw your post after answering your previous one. We can continue in the thread I created about marco and the lightspeed argument. Though gonna reply tomorrow, since gonna go to sleep now, being late in Germany. :D
