Surprisingly enough it was just as good as I remembered!

Found a nugget I had missed previously. Anyone else notice the one robot that worked for a gardening service? All of his lingo was job related. "Oh mulch! You'll be compost!" Etc. It was great. The thing is you only know he's a gardener robot if you read the outside of his car when he first appears.

Another wonderful example of that extra lil something Pre-unity gave us!

Re-read Invasion and then the Rai tpb again after that.

I just love the real to life aspects esp dealing with the political nature of life w/o getting preachy.

Tanaka sez, life would be easier w/o Seko around
The Kazuyo sez you're going to have him killed?
No, I just said life would be easier.

I also like the pacing of these books. Every page tells a little story (nearly)
