was it cancelled? that's a bitch and a half. i thought it looked really good. the animation style reminded me of Heavy Metal.
also, just for the record, the japanese in general are fucking OBSESSED with everything american, just look at how many english words are in their language. you can barely say a japanese sentence without engilsh words.
they just don't want to admit they like america the same way that you don't want to admit that you like (eva, TTGL, haruhi, whatever). japan is tsundere for america.
