    No, not currently.

    Not been to any yet... unless you count Dr. Who or Red Dwarf, Blake's Seven or Star Trek.

    Nopers... my familiar ( a cat ) is named after a Celtic Goddess.

  11. What theme or institution in anime should be decreased or increased and why?
    OK... dig this, too much time spent by film makers on mushy hearts and flowers giggling schoolgirl/ metro schoolboy anime. We need more Mechs and Labors and killer robots and swordfights and cool female supercops with big laserguns. And swashbuckling demon/vampire/monster hunting suave hero types and cute but powerful human animal hybrids ( ex. Unampuma and Anapuma )
