Identity theft has been one of internet-related hot topics in recent years. And with the rise of concern came business opportunities for some, selling identity protection. Go on, do some Google search on this topic. So many business are selling their service. And to me, they all sounds fishy. Seriously, how can you trust these stranger to protect your identity? And can they really do a good job, completely protecting who you are?
Here’s a case in point. It’s really difficult to protect your identity after your death. Especially with Black Jack’s über face-lift skill. (Only the supernatural force can pwn him.) If you happen to suffer an unfortunate death under special circumstance, someone else can steal your face and take over your identity. He’ll take all your money and lifestyle! Oh noes!
About a month ago, I asked if anyone could help us getting us last 2 volumes of DVD. Seeing nobody available to help us, I busted open my piggy bank and bought the DVD. The DVD is now traveling on my way. This series shouldn’t experience any more slow downs between now and the end, barring episode 56, the first episodes on those discs.

As I read the title of episode 03, I was struck by the similarities between the episode’s possible story and the story of “The Black Cat” by Edgar Allen Poe. Both protagonists are harassed by cats intent on harassing them for harassment purposes. Similarities abound! The narrator of “The Black Cat” is an unreliable narrator, has visions of his previous cat (who he murdered), and suffers from a mild case of insanity; Junpei from Nyan Koi is male! Shocking! The first black cat from “The Black Cat” has the name Pluto; the cats in Nyan Koi have probably heard of the concept of names! Electrifying! What’s more, take a look at this excerpt from “The Black Cat” by Edgar Allen Poe:
“You know, I was crazy once. They locked me in a rubber room. It was cold. I died. They buried me. There were worms. I hate worms. Worms tickle. You know, I was crazy once. They locked me in a rubber room. It was cold. I died. They buried me. There were worms. I hate worms. Worms tickle. You know…”
Poetry in motion, no? As you watch this episode, remember this excerpt and marvel at how Edgar Allen Poe’s ancient themes work so well in modern day anime.

I goofed. I was too much of an idiot, and released the wrong file the first time. So… what was wrong? Let me actually show you what was wrong.
You see the obvious blocks in the first images in each set? We saw that before the initial release, and created the better version. I, having had a bit too much to drink that night, released the bad version. That’s what happened, and that’s why we’re now releasing the proper version. I hope this post clarify some of the confusion.
Anyway, you can download the episode using BitTorrent as usual.
