Fans of Fred Perry's GOLD DIGGER comic, published by Antarctic Press,
will be pleased to note that the much-ballyhooed idea of a GOLD DIGGER
anime will be made reality--interestingly enough, apparently AD Vision
got the early lead in optioning the GOLD DIGGER anime before it was
released--the last time they did that was for GUNSMITH CATS!

I think GOLD DIGGER will prove to be just as funny in its animated form
as in the original--and it fits with the ADV paradigm of cutes and
over-the-top humour.

Still no word on whether the series will be animated domestically or in
Japan; if in Japan, any speculation on who will do the character

(Expecting a DRAGON HALF-esque romp....)
