I'm heading to school but I just heard on the news that an 8.3 mag earthquake has hit just south of American Samoa. Reportedly Pago Pago has been hit by a tsunami as well. Water from the initial wave reached 100 + yds inland.No word on the Kindom of Samoa, but Tsunami warnings/watches are being issued for Hawaii and Auckland.
No further info.
UPDATE: Eni Faleomavaega, American Samoa's Congressional delegate reports that the harbor is full of cars via FNC. Still no reports from the Kingdom of Samoa.
UPDATE2: It's bad. Video at the link.
In American Samoa whole villages are reported wiped out. The Tsunami appears to have been around 30 feet high. The ranger station was hit. The 3 coasties at MSD Pago Pago have their hands full if they are still alive.The little info coming from the Kingdom of Samoa seems to be via the New Zealand consolate. It is bad as well. Only a few deaths at least 70 dead confirmed so far but from what I just heard on the radio lots are still missing.
Note that a huge percentage of the US fish catch actually comes through Tutuila.
UPDATE3: Video of damage on the southwest coast of Tutuila.

There is a LOT involved. It may require as much as 16 ships. I still think it was a defensible decision given the options but it certainly is not a cheap one. Read the whole thing. There is a good discussion in the comments too.
Why do these Mo-Rawns think that spamming people will win someone over to their idiot cause?

Our heroine is undeterred by any of this however.Through sheer determination she proceeds to acquire a table...a rival...and a fan. Now all she needs is content.
This is an odd little show and the dvd is not without its problems...while the first volume comes with the manga, nearly half of each disc is a live action segment concerning two of the voice actors trying to do a manga...which means I paid 14.99 for 50 minutes of sketch comedy and 50 minutes of....wtf?.These skits did nothing for me. Additionally the lettering in the manga is sized wrong. The letters are so small that I recommend a magnifying glass. The package suffers from this quite a bit.
As to the show itself, it is an off color show but cute show. It would likely not have worked as full length or even half length episodes, but the skit format suits its little stories. It is little better animated than an old UPA cartoon, but the animators actually have some fun with this and make the most of their limited budget. The characters are enjoyably quirky. At this point I've watched the whole thing and, despite the high level of background slash radiation and female nosebleeds.... I laughed.
