^Yeah, uh, according to Canned Dogs article that must've costed them somewhere around ~US$359k.

This season it seems like everyone's going crazy with anime. First K-ON!! airing in over nine thousand different stations all over Japan and now this ad. What the heck!

For some reason, this pic reminds me a lot of Haruhi What's her name again?

I'm kind of curious about Angel Beats just to see how (if) they pull this off. I assume they are going for a tribute. Given the prominence of this character in promotional materials, this has to be more than a passing reference.

Uh, not sure if this is old but the ANN page now has listings for the rest of the character voices. I am somewhat curious as to why there is an American guy in the middle of the cast? Is it an error or should I brace for some gaijin in the middle of the show? Do we all get to the same place after we die and it doesn't matter if we're American, Japanese, French, whatever?!

Yuri does reminds me of Haruhi, and Angel ( Tenshi ) reminds me of Nagato Yuki....
I wonder if they might show a Haruhi reference.....

I'm having a feeling that Angel Beats! will be popular.

This thread has 11 pages, it's being written by Key, PA Works is the animator, and it's being funded by Aniplex. With all of this hype, it better at least be better than decent.

Hey hey no don't go there. If it is her style you don't like then fine, but don't go and say her art is not quality. The art is beautiful that KEY produces it is unique and stands out from the rest.

As for the story from what I know about Maeda with complete control will go for not so happy ending from what I've seen and read.

Hah, alright. Let's say it's an art style. If we had a poll ranking the character arts between say Planetarian and Clannad, or between LB's Kud route and Haruka route, I'd be very surprised if the latters are ranked higher.

Hmmm, personally I thought Haruka's route was waaaaaaaaay better than Kudo's. I guess Kudo is such a popular character I can see her route ranking higher (I don't see the appeal, lol).... And I haven't touched Planetarian but the Clannad VN art style is very attractive IMO. I prefer it over styles in lots of newer games I see coming out. :P

I just don't believe that number. I don't know how big that newspaper is nor do I know how many people read it but THREEHUNDREDFIFTYNINE - THOUSAND just for that ad just sounds ridiculous. No newspaper will ever charge that much even if it's a full page ad.

But of course one can always negotiate for a discount.

I don't think you know how much money is made out of advertising. Nor how much it costs to advertise on stuff nowadays.

I mean, seriously, I have no idea how the Japanese reality regarding this matter is, but comparing to the stuff I get to know from where I live, there's really hardly anything idiotic about that number. Advertising is expensive.

I'm intrigued. Anyone found info that confirms this?

Uh, so it's for 6 months and not just once like I assumed. Of course $359k is outrageous for a one-time ad, but if it's for 6 months then it seems ok.

EDIT: O_O This guy's STAFF in dubs rather than part of the voice cast. Could Angel Beats! be this guy's voice debut, or has ANN mixed up this Michael Rivas with another one?

Hm...didn't realise the VA of Yuri has also had a role in 15 Bishoujo Hyouryuuki, which is a (nice) hentai.

More reasons to watch this show olol.

I think it's most likely to be just a different person with the same name, but I guess there's no way to be 100% sure at this point.
