$359k is outrageous for a one-time ad
It's rather confusing but it actually works like this:

- one-time insertion (one time and you're out): higher CPM

- multiple-time insertion (1 full page each day/week/etc., I don't know how many times it is at Yomiuri for a 6-month contract): lower CPM

The CPM gets lower the more times the ad is inserted onto the newspaper, but that CPM is for each single time.

With Yomiuri, it's about CPM x 10000.

Imagine how much you would pay to get 10+ million people to know about you (there's a lot you can do with a full page, and it's not just random people, the target audience is people who read newspapers on a daily basis) after just one day. $359k seems fair then.

That's a costly endeavor indeed, but it seems they've been intending to go all-out from the start anyway. Throwing Key/Maeda's name around, churning out PVs one after another, building up a shiny staff list (and deliberately designing a Haruhi-lookalike?)... I'd be damned if it won't get hyped like the Second Coming.

Now all it takes is for the series to actually live up to such expectations....

That's a nationwide paper right? Canned Dogs said it's apparently only for the Kanto region? If it's only in circulation in one region then it is expensive...

Obviously Kud is one of the most popular LB cast so that isn't a fair comparison. Planetarian and Clannad are of very equal quality. In Planetarian there is one character compared to a cast. I'm sure the favor would be to Clannad since it is rated one of top visual novels. It seems like your trying to base your opinion as whole assumption that her style is disliked. Some obviously don't like it, but it obviously is liked if it sells and has an art book published.

I assume that's a one-time ad, the CPM must be more than $48.54 (as of June 2009), let's say about $60. And Kanto makes up about 2/3 of the newspaper's circulation... you get the idea.

http://adv.yomiuri.co.jp/yomiuri/rate/
It's the ad cost calculator. Select the region, edition, full page ad etc. and you get the number.

It's expensive and out of reach for most, I know.

(what am I babbling about, I didn't mean to do some marketing )

Kinda silly quoting myself, but it seems you two both missed it. Also, interesting that Kud, Rin, Sasasasasasami, and Saya's routes were all given to Na-Ga. Mio's too, but I'm not sure if she's popular.

That and if you just look at Kanata's front and side drawings, you can hardly tell they are supposed to be the same person. I don't think style has anything to do with that.

...And I'm gonna leave it here before getting yelled at for going off topic.

Angel Beats ANN Page



????
Well, after bitsy of searching, both wikipedia and some sources confirms that Michael Rivas is the same Michael Rivas I'm thinking... While wikipedia is not the most trusted source, the info has been out for a while so can't say they didn't already give all their best tracking this. ANN also resonates with the news link that says he is a Hawaiian singer who starred in Tentai Senshi Sunred something in one of Ketsu Inu news IIRC...

He is a Japanese born singer who grows up in Hawaii (Which makes him errr... non-Japanese language singer in any case, but still, profile said he is a Japanese native speaker). Although I'm not sure about his works but TK's description does fit with the requirement for his seiyuu...? B|a

What I meant is the both art quality is fine. Even some of Saya's images are off portion and just look off (cover image). What I'm meaning is regardless for the art style Kud is a more popular character so the polls would be in her favor.

I'm not fond of Itaru' LB style compared to her previous works like Clannad which is my favorite. Rewrite too I also really like as well.

Quite a potent team combination... I rank SnH as my top comedy anime of all time, and the thought of seeing more work from its director is appealing. True Tears is not my all-time top romance anime, but it is definitely a top-ranker, and I still remember gushing over the technical awesomeness of the sound direction when it was airing.

The sound of the basketball bounce was... EPIC!!!! People probably know of the term "scenery porn". Well, True Tears had "audio porn" in spades, and the PV already hints at it again.

Jun Maeda? Well, I'm not a zealous fanboy of his, but I'll give credit to the man for one thing. He could probably spin a tale where a girl talks about her pet rock and make a grown man cry about it.

Other than that, the one thing I DO WANT to gush about is the white-haired girl. OMG! She's the moefied personification of a Protoss Zealot! I just need her to say, "My life for Aiur!" and lightning can strike me down right where I am, for my existence would be complete... She has PSI-BLADES! Or at least something that looks like them...

NARF!

So I guess we're looking at hours until the big reveal. It will be interesting to get a first glimpse at a real episode.

Yay, thanks. Light novels are just my thing.

In case someone is wondering, Yuri is a tsundere indeed. Though, like most tsunderes, she's much more of a tsun-tsun than a dere-dere, actually.

I'm somewhat new to animesuki but I was wondering what the criterias are for an anime to get its own subforum and do you think this one will? I assume its popularity and I think this has enough...

Oh well, it should be airing in around an hour I think, but I think I'll wait for subs.

It's gonna be interesting to see how well Angel Beats will do compared to K-On!!. I know the former has pew pew and all, but I'm curious whether or not Key can ditch KyoAni for the first time and still be just as successful.

From my understanding, mods have their own undisclosed criteria for judging which series warrants a subforum. It'll be done when it's done, so normal forumers shouldn't go around requesting for it (as it'll probably just annoy the mods ).

I watched it, it wasnt mindblowing amazing or anything, but it was still enjoyable to watch. You can tell they blew the budget on the concert/action scenes near the end because the rest of the episode had some rather low quality every now and then
