A Day Tempered By Bad News
Well, I'll not gloat too much over my personal victory of finding a copy of Rumbling Hearts Vol. 1. It's damn luck we have a local anime shop I can go to when Best Buy does it's moron act and decides not to carry a series. "Hard to find some of these japanese animations" the guy says... yeah right.
I had no idea about this whole AnimeFF fiasco until Adam began his reports on it. I've never been to a con, but hope to go to some nearby in-state, hopefully this summer.
But this... this is just wrong. It's hard to tell yet if this Jeff guy or someone associated with him was just running a scam of of this went so bad the guy decided to be a coward and take off with the money. And with so many clues left behind and so many people worked over by this, I don't see how they have a case. And I'm sure there must be federal laws for prosecuting scams running under the guise of raising money for charity. Whatever the outcome, I back Adam and my fellow Otuakuite to the end.
