Why do we forget? Every time I begin to tell this story, our story, that question always comes to mind. Even today, at the dawn of a new millennium, I still have no answer.
We lost everything. In an instant, what was ours was wrested away, submerging us in the darkness of our own ignorance. The details of our history are lost in its immensity, and so we are doomed to repeat them, ignorant of our condition, while the world that we created collapses around us. Is this our punishment? Or our salvation?

You would think the Anima line in general would get more attention than it does. Just seems like there are a lot of the minis being pumped out but no info on that at all. I think if FFG were to put same kind of effort into promoting the Anima line of products as much as they do their own and GW's. I think you would see more folks giving Anima a look see.
It is an interesting point. A game no more than it is supported, but can be supported less. Thus, the only way to succeed is to risk serious loss. On the other hand, leaving it unsupported means it's vastly more likely to fail. One way or the other, we are getting supplements, even if we aren't getting them in good time.
I do agree with your point though. We get ten cheap updates a week on other games (which I think is a good thing), and we got two updates (total) on this (which I think is not). One to tell us they're going to get it (how long ago was that?) and one to tell us it's here. It used to be that I would see a lot of people saying that this is an orphan line (at least in English). Now I just don't see anybody talking about it at all (aside from a few voices on the Edge English forum).
I've pre-ordered on Amazon, I wonder when they'll have it in stock.
I can't help but think that Fantasy Flight Games could have taken some effort to promote this book. Perhaps an article other than "It's coming soon!" Maybe one of the 9+ Deathwatch announcements could have been more information about this book.
Better late than never. Hope there will be more Anima products in the RPG line to trickle out in the future. Thanks FFG!
Man, i thought this was a dead RPG line, glad to see its not.
SWEET! This is made of awesome! Having been taunted by Swordwraith and others with their stupid Spanish-reading skills, I'm so looking forward to this.
