More Code Geass Incomming

More Code Geass is a good thing too me. I enjoyed the first 2 seasons, and the manga is alright. Plus, I  love CLAMP character designs even if the people are noodle armed.

Code Geass Anime: Gaiden Boukoku no Akito is the name of the new title. It takes place 7 years after the first season and apparently some shit went down that caused Lelouch’s hope for world peace didn’t happen. So, some people from Area 11 (Japan) are on a mission with only a 5%. Seems like they are pretty much screwed.

Currently there is no release date or details about whether it is an anime or manga. I am hoping for an anime since I don’t read a whole lot of manga. Also, I hope Lelouch comes back since I believe he is still alive even with that ending.


Yen Plus To Go Out Of Print

But it will be online for free. They have just decided to go to an ad based service online to cut down on cost and to make the kids that refuse to buy anything happy. They be publishing the individual manga volumes though, so don’t worry, they aren’t taking everything off the shelves.

As for people that subscribed, you will get your money back. So everyone is happy in a way. I myself am saddened to see another manga anthology magazine going out. But I guess as long as the company stays, it will be fine.


Twilight Korean Manga Coming Out On March 16

Okay, so, who actually wants this? I don’t and I don’t see many people other than the Twilight fan girls who want everything related to it they can get.

Yen press will be publishing it and Stephanie Meyer says it is great and has so much hard work put into it by Korean manhwaga Young Kim. I think she is just saying this to get more sales for a series that is slowly losing popularity.

Story wise, Twilight is unoriginal, boring after about 200 pages, and not worth a re-read.  So I don’t see why it is liked by all these girls and middle aged moms.  I enjoyed it and all, but not the fanaticism that follows it.


Code Geass: Shikkoku no Renya Announced

Code Geass: Shikkoku no Renya was announced, but it is a manga about a boy with a mechanical arm that can shoot throwing stars out. But, at least CC is still in it, along with some guy who looks kinda like Lelouch.

Currently set for release in 2010, I expect it too sell pretty well and be out in the US not to long after.

They have stated that there will be other manga and probably an anime announced later on as the rebirth of Geass is a project that encompasses multiple things.

I think I will watch my Code Geass DVDs now since I am getting more pumped for new Code Geass material.

Higurashi Getting mahjong Manga…

Seriously, what the hell? I know it has a Mahjong game and all, but a manga about a group of girls and 1 boy similar to the picture above will probably be totally messed up. Stabbing a child’s fingers if they make a good move, beheading the winner, torturing those unwilling to play, etc.

It is set to be released in the magazine Kindai Mahjong and the title will be Higurashi no Naku Koro ni ~Tsubamegaeshi Hen~.

I’m willing to give it a read, but I don’t expect the quality of the original manga considering it’s about the psychopaths playing manga.


Yu Yu Hakusho And Yu-Gi-Oh GX Ending In Shonen Jump US

Well, Shonen Jump has made it to their second fully finished manga since it came into existence. Yuyu Hakusho will finally come to an end in the US Shonen Jump magazine in next months issue, along with Yu-Gi-Oh GX which they are just getting out of the manga.

GX will still be release in graphic novel form and all, but that is still too much in m opinion.

Yuyu Hakusho has been running in the magazine since it’s first issue, so it definitely has seen a lot. But maybe this lack of a monthly story will cause some to want to go out and buy the manga. You never know.


Crayon-Shin Chan Going On Until February

Crayon-Shin-chan-1Well, more chapters were discovered of Shin-Chan, so it won’t be ending this month after all. I myself am surprised it will be going on for so long considering the author is dead.

Right now, more chapters will be coming out until February.

More chapters should make fans happy, or it just might make them feel worse because every time they are almost out of the stress of waiting, more things happen. But, either way, there will always be more manga out there to read.
