    'Anta Baka?!' Report is up. I loved doing that.

    Did you see the news tonight about Kenji Kamiyama's revelation of his latest work? I watched the live stream tonight on NicoNico. It's a freaking Cyborg 009 film remake! What, I am shocked...I did not like the preview vid I saw. Felt rather inferior to the 1968 version.

    I actually got asked to re-do that panel at another convention. Made it a bit more newbie friendly and picture oriented. Worked better than the original. Video of it soon.

    Well, I'm into Stein's;Gate now. I just need HD versions to watch - it's pretty important for a show like that.

    Aussie market is getting better because Siren Visual came in 4 years ago and now have resources to take noitaminA titles, alternative titles and watchable moe titles. They're giving Madman series competition, who are very mainstream, however their swift license of Stein's;Gate was welcome.

    Finished my first series of reviews today. A humour article coming up soon. If I have time before the next review series, I'll give some thoughts on October ep1s.

    Don't worry about it, thanks for accepting

    That KamiNomi cover album sounds epic, hearing Kanon sing Ai Oboete Imasuka and all those other awesome songs too.

    Until then, gonna spend moments of extreme joy in Gokigen Ikaga, sadness in Omoi wa Rain Rain, epicness in God Only Knows, and bittersweet in Ai no Yokan. This soundtrack is brilliant.

    Noticed you lurking on my page for a while. I should probably be polite and say hello. So hello there. How are things?

    Read your postings about Madhouse's works on Marvel titles look set to get decent results in the U.S. Glad in the sense that it will get Madhouse money, which they are in dire need of. I read one of the original Madhouse founders said Satoshi Kon's final film, Yume Miru Karai, was getting delayed again due to funding issues. I've known that post-Death Note, Madhouse have not had good sales of anything in the TV series realm at all. I think Tatami Galaxy - one of my fave titles ever - is one of the few they made money on in the last few years. If Madhouse get money and can get back to a more normal state, this will be good news.

    UN-GO has actually already been licensed in Australia. Pre-emptive licensing has been a fair practice in Australia this year. Siren claimed Tiger & Bunny, C, Bunny Drop and UN-GO very quickly, while Madman claimed Stein's;Gate, Gosick, Deadman Wonderland and Last Exile - Silver Wing in short time. It's interesting to note Australia is a country which is beginning to license titles which nowhere else outside of Japan does. Siren recently picked up Dennou Coil and apparently they are the only ones outside of Japan to pick it up. Certainly Australia has some risks/niche-value being acknowledged as well as the mainstream.

    Personally, 2011 has done little for me. Bunny Drop was a good watch. Giving Stein's;Gate a decent go once I have time. Hoping October offers some good times. Been watching a lot more old school material from the 70s, 80s and 90s lately along with more obscure 00s titles. Noticed you've been somewhat annoyed by some of the modern trends yourself.

    You got a blog or anything like that you do? Would like to see it if you have one.
    Local licensing companies have started sending me some of their titles, so I started up my anime blog this week. Address is here. Will need some cosmetic adjustments but for now I just want to start it and have some discussion going. Let me know what you think. Trying to design it so that I acknowledge titles that are licensed by Siren and Madman while also tying in somemore obscure licenses and unlicensed ones into a common theme is my approach. Will also be doing some industry pieces based on things I've learnt this year.

    Not directed at you, just a general observation! In a way it's good for UN-GO because people are going to be surprised when it's one of the top shows of the year, and GC is going to have to be great or people will be disappointed.

    As I had hoped, the Marvel anime are doing well... as re-imports basically, lol

    So even if they don't do well in native Japan, they probably will do well in North America. I just hope that Madhouse reaps some of the financial benefits from this.

    I definitely would like to see more of their X-Men work at least.

    Anyway, thanks for the info!

    So I hear that the ending to No.6 is ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC .

    In all honesty though, I wanted to rep you on that post, but I repped you already so I'll leave a comment here . Absolutely agree with your stance on noitamina. I am also a member of Good Old Days Noitamina (TM). I really miss animes like Honey and Clover, Nodame Cantabile, Paradise Kiss, Hataraki Man. I actually like Usagi Drop more than the average person did (in my Top 10 now) but yeh... I have a feeling not very many shows like that is gonna be made anymore. I also agree with you that although I enjoyed Anohana... its success is actually very worrying.

    Sad sad times for noitamina indeed

    No worries ... RL concerns trump all else and such

    Not sure if you have seen my posts in Penguin Drum thread or no, but I decided to drop it from my "ongoing list"after ep 8 ... the main reason being that I couldn't stand the overdose of Ringo's outright nasty and cruel behavior towards the younger brother over so many episodes. I will prolly watch the show in full later on wen everything is done. As a side note, though, I am not really a fan of "super mysteries" OR "artsy style animation" ... so they prolly did not help either in deciding to drop it.

    I have to tally agree with you about iM@S, though - it was the absolute biggest surprise for me. I have been really enjoying it. Whoulda thought it would be a slice of life series depicting the lives of a group of idols starting from the bottom of the rung? Very interesting, and the characters are endearing and often very "real". I also like the fact that the show has not gone the route of trying to "sell itself" through excessive fanservice and seems to have rather focused on the personalities of and interpersonal relations between everyone working at 765. Dantalian no Shoka was my other surprise. Good and solid material (as well as a heartbreakingly beautiful OP, which goes a long way in my book).

    Ikoku still holds the crown for me this season though, although Usagi was a strong, strong contender the entire time - if it is behind in the race it only lost by a leg. In other words, it was a stupendous piece of work!

    Hmm ... No 6 was almost dropped b/c of the 3 episodes or so that seemed to constantly focus on the relationship between Nezumi and Shion. I was getting mighty tired of the same recycled things going on again and again, and Shion especially was mightily annoying. When they finally returned to the overall plot (beginning with ep 8, I think) things began getting interesting for me again. Afaiac the plot is the strength of the series while both the personality of Shion and the relationship between Nezumi and Shion are it's weaknesses. For me the show was not great, but rather "good".

    I have been following Kami-memochou too and enjoying it. Also continuing to follow Hanasaku Iroha and Nichijou from last season. The former continues to be good but has fallen a teensy bit in my estimation, while Nichijou I have enjoyed about the same level.

    I have also been following some "5 minute long shows" as well. Recently began Copihan )still not sure what in the world is going on) and Busou Shinko: Moon Angel, which looks interesting. I have also followed Morita-san wa Makuchi, which was okay ... I expected more from it though, so that was a little disappointing.

    Way back at the beginning of the season I tried 5 or 6 other shows and dropped them (including R-15, Ryo-kyo-bu, Blood-C and a bunch of others whose titles I don't recall atm).

    Hmm ... guess that is it!
