idk; any change of Lingua Franca

and I do believe that Chinese writing is genuinely too obtuse for it to proliferate in a way that an alphabetical language (even with terrible and inconsistent rules) can do on a global scale in the modern epoch.
People who say one language or another is objectively bad or good are tards, but I am absolutely of the belief that a language's writing system (or certain classes of writing system) can be objectively bad, as they are things which are explicitly designed, unlike spoken language which just kinda happens.
Anyhow, I don't see any contender challenging English other than Chinese, and I don't think Chinese can quite hack it, especially as well cause the damage of people globally
knowing English is kind of already done.
LF of the past were more regional, even if over very large regions, whereas English is the
language to know the entire world over, and lots of people do
know it already, and lots more continue to learn it.
At a Half-Price Books lol.
and only some of the pages were magazine print full color, typically at the intros with some in-the-middle splashes, rest were standard black and white.
Apparently Gainax did do a full color manga release too though
