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.

Spring 2010 Anime List

This season has a few titles I am pretty interested in.

Iron Man, RAINBOW – Nisha Rokubo no Shichinin, Ichiban Ushiro no Dai Maou, Angel Beats, K-On!, Working!!, Kiss x Sis, Mayoi Neko Overrun!, Hankuouki: Shinsengumi Kitan, and  maybe Giant Killing.

So yeah, a pretty filled up season. Though, there is no telling how many I will drop.

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.
