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.

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.

Crunchyroll To Stream 3 New Anime

asura-cryinCrunchyroll has added 3 new titles to its ever growing list of streaming anime. The newest additions are Asura Cryin’ 2, Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee, and Naked Wolves.

I still need to watch Asura Cryin’s first season, so I guess I will be watching that soon. Tegami Bachi seems like it might be alright. But Naked Wolves reminds me of Ultimate Muscle based on what I read, so I won’t be watching that.

Asura Cryin’ 2 starts September 30th at 10:00 p.m. EDT, Tegami Bachi starts October 3rd at 11:30 a.m. EDT, and Naked Wolves starts today.

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

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.

My Thoughts On Umi Monogatari

sea story umi monogatariUmi Monogatari (Sea Story) started about 3 week ago, and so far, it is a fun watch. Though, if you are looking for bouncing boobs, you may want to go for something more like Fight Ippatsu! Juden-chan!! This anime so far is rather family friendly and the closest thing you will get to naked girls is the top image right there.

Story wise, not to good, not too bad. Good for if you want something entertaining while you wait for a new DVD to come in or another episode of Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 to come on.

The story I got based on episode 1 is that these too girls, Urin and Marin, live in the sea and find a ring. The ring belongs to Kanon, who is basically an emo kid in the first episode. They bring it bac kto her, she throws it away and Marin goes to look for it again. Finalkly, Urin finds it, but releases an evil spirit at the same time. Thus, the story begins.

Visually, the underwater scenes are pretty cool looking, while the land scenes at the beginning of the episode leave a little to be desired. Though, they seem to fix that near the half way point where you start to see more detail in the scenes. Overall, if you want something colorful, this should do it for you.

Sound quality is dependent on what fansub you get, so, I will just talk about voice acting in this part. Mostly, its decent, not spectacular, but good. Kanon’s VA did the best in my opinion. but the other should do better further in when they feel better about their characters.

So, the series isn’t a must watch, but it’s not an avoid at all cost either. It’s fun, calm, and isn’t really perverted either. The happy feeling of the Marin adds to the overall cheerfulness of the show, and that is one reason why I liked it.

Video – 8/10

Audio – VA 7.5/10 – Quality NA

Overall 8/10

School Days VN English Translation Episode 1 Released

schooldays-smallFinally, a public release of the School Days VN English translation. Sekai Project is still working on the other episodes, and have stated that episodes 2 – 4 should be out by the end of this year.

The reason they took so long with episodes1 is because they had to get a method of patching the game made. This can take many week, months, or even years to do, but once it is done, you can easily finish the translation.

Hopefully they get many downloads so they know that people appreciate what they have done.

You can download the English patch here.

Also, make sure you follow the directions because that will help get it up and running. With these types of things, the smallest error can cause the game not too work.
