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.

My Thoughts On: Ladies Vs. Butlers

You know, I really don’t know why I am still watching this considering it seems almost like the whole point it just to make a fanservice show. There is some humor, and maybe I suffer through the bad parts for that small amount since I don’t have anything to watch on those days.

The story is about a guy who goes to some prestigious school to become a butler. Once there, a series of accidents cause problems, whether it be the accidental molestation of the breast of a girl who obviously likes him, or he himself being molested by one of the maids. He soon meets an old “friend” who finds joy in his despair and thus she tries her hardest to make life even worse for him.

Visually, it is pretty nice looking, especially in HD. Bright colors and some good character designs. Though, I am waiting for 2ch’s group of super otaku to dissect every frame to look for one problem so I can be proven wrong about my opinion.

Audio wise, the VAs do alright. Nothing spectacular, but not horrible. Some music is here and there.

Over all, it is a show that I don’t understand why I am still watching, like I said, it may be for the small amount of humor, or it may be that I hope for a story to start.

Score: 5/10

Hopeful Opinion Score:  7/10

Katanagatari’s New Trailer Streaming

The new trailer for Katanagatari was posted for all too see and I have to say, it has gotten me really excited. It looks like it will have a good blend of action, drama, and some comedy, so I can’t wait.

You can watch it here.

If you would like more information regarding the anime, you can see my earlier post here.

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)
