Not very tactful, eh?

It sounded good at the time that I wrote it.

I think I'm responsible for that running joke...
Alright, one-shot comments aside: Although it is a tradition in many circles
to bitch and moan about how the manga is different, I figured I would go for
a change of pace... Why does Sadamoto opt to recycle and scavenge so much?
He contributed a lot to the show, sure, but he seems to be overutilizing the
completed anime as a source when he could be doing much more completely
original stuff with his manga version. And, even though the manga is a "very
different beast", it still follows the same plot framework as the anime --
except for those events that he's skipped over, and some that he's added,
we've basically been going through the Sadamoto version of the anime
chronology. Why did he chose to conform so closely to it when he had so many
possibilities open to him?
