Around The World – AMV

This is one of the best AMVs I have ever watched. It even has a remix of that Fireflies song that makes me like the song.

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.

X-Japan To Be Based In US Soon

Awesome news today guys, X-Japan will now be based in the US, meaning they may have more US tours and I might be able to see them in concert.

In a move that isn’t to surprising considering Yoshiki lives in the US and it is hard to live in 2 countries at once.

Oh how I wish more Japanese bands and singers would do concert in the US, I already get to see NOIZ in concert (which is awesome and loudd), but I want Maximum the Hormone, MELL, or High and Mighty Color. I also want to see Utada in concert, but everytime she does one, I can’t go because I live in the middle of no where.

Oh well, I guess I can hope this will lead to better things, but even if it doesn’t for me, there are more people for me to be jealous of.

K-On! And Haruhi-Chan Manga Licensed Along With Bungaku Shoujo Novel

Yen Press has announced today that it has acquired K-On!, the Haruhi-Chan manga, and the first light novel of Bungaku Shoujo. All I can say is that I am excited about all 3.

I myself normally only get certain manga since I am typically turned off by the chaotic mess that is an action scene in manga, but being able to get K-on! and Haruhi-chan is great. Bungaku Shoujo is another thing I am looking forward too since it is a light novel. Light novels tend to hold my interest more than manga since they take longer to complete and I can picture it in my mind the way I want to see.

Currently Bungaku Shoujo is set for July, Haruhi-Chan is set for October, and K-On! is set for November.

Second Season Of K-On! Incomming!

MORE K-ON! IS COMMING! YAY!

That means there will be more Yui and Ritsu on  the screen. Though, I guess I will be fine if the others on on the show too. But either way, we all know that Yui is best and Ritsu is second.

Currently there is no set release date, but expect summer 2010 if we go based on when the last season came out.

Even the place where it was announced used Yui for it. they understand her greatness apparently.All I can say abotu this anime is summed up in the picture below.

Evangelion 1.11 Is Top Selling Blu-Ray Release In Japan This Year

All this does  is make the wait for the US BluRay release of Evangelion 1.11 even longer. I haven’t seen the movie yet since I wanted to wait for a US license and since FUNimation will be releasing the Evangelion 1.11 BluRay on March 9, 2010.

Though, the surprising part is that Bakemonogatari didn’t beat it. It was the highest for quite a few months. Not that I mind. I enjoy Bakemonogatari also, but Evangelion is better in my opinion. I’m just glad that Queen’s Blade didn’t beat either one even though it will probably be the guilty pleasure of mine when it is released next summer here in the US.

If you want to rest of the listing’s for the year, go here. (It’s in Japanese for the most part)

Black Music Club AMV

K-On! would have been even better if it was this hardcore.

K-On! Ties That Look Awesome

k-on_character_tiesJust look at them, they look awesome. Having one of these for awards day at high school this year would be awesome that’s for sure. Hopefully J-list gets them in stock sometime soon so I can order me one.

But, if you are lucky enough to live in Japan, you can order them from the Brain Police Online Store.

My favorites out of them are the Ritsu, Mio, and Azusa ones. The Yui one is nice, but I never really liked pink that much. Either way, if I get the money somehow, I will probably get at least one eventually.

Thanks for finding this Sankaku Complex

yui-hirasawa-motivatorYui Hirasawa anime K-On! is getting another episode. THe episode is set too come with volume 7 of the anime. So, don’t expect too see it too soon. Januray 20th of next year to be exact.

K-On! is about is about a girl named Yui who leads 4 other girls to the land of being a band. She helps them play guitar, drums and keyboard, and even shows them how to sing. Slowly, they move up the ladder of greatness and play at the schools cultural festival.

Ok, that made it sound like there is a point to this anime when there really isn’t.But, I don’t care, it was good.

And, for all you people that think Mio is the best, think again. The rankings are really Yui, Azusa, Ritsu, Mio, Tsumugi, and Sawa-Chan.
