You should have just thrown out your clothes, you could always buy more of them later.

Spoiler for Tiger in Desert 2:
You know on reflection I feel compelled to point out that Rock and Roll as a type of music really didnt emerge until the 50s. Though I did get a bit of a laugh thanks to that line the other night while playing a sim when I saw this transpire in the chat. Alas no one acutally busted out "let's rock and/or roll" during the mad rush into the battle though I was sorely tempted.

Besides Tomoko( and maybe Haruka), Beurling definitely gets the most fanart. Rudel probably gets the most for a supporting character.
I rather like Elma, but she's far from being popular.
Of course Beurling would be the most popular no other outcome is possible in the face of her awesomeness.

As for Ursula that hardly surprises me she has like what a half dozen lines even in the few chaps we have translated? The "Just doesn't care" type character can seem like a good idea until you realize "You know if they just don't care they never do anything."

The producer probably will be Cyber Front.

It seems that the second season of the anime is still in pre-production.

"At the talk show it was mentioned that the screenwriting is half way done, but details like airing schedule and production studio are still up in the air."

It's good to see that there's progress being made. I really hope it sticks with GONZO. Sudden shifts in studio have really killed some previous second seasons (Gunslinger Girl ~il teatrino) comes to mind.

I mentioned to my brother the other day, "Speaking of games, you know what's coming out for X-Box? A Strike Witches shooting game." To which he curtly replied, "I'm not letting you use my X-Box to play something like that." I guess I won't be getting it then (・ω・`) Though, like Idolmaster, there's a good chance it might be region-locked.

Like others, I sure wish they did a PC release. PC gaming is superior to console gaming.

- You should have gave him a maniacal grin and rubbed your hands. And then spend the rest of the week mentally torturing him by sneaking around, eyeing his XBox and going "Mwe he he he...

Yeah for all the talk unless like the entire staff switches companies it's rare that a sudden shift in production staff doesn't have a negetive effect. (happens in games allot too.)

Which was never something I could understand at all it's like companies got together and said "hey lets make it so we can't earn extra money off export." which like boggles my mind. Yeah sure the market wouldn't be huge, but the customers would be paying for the importing and the units would still be moving so it would be profit all the same.

Well I doubt they'd get me off my real sims anyway and I'm not quite a big enough nerd to pay to import something I can't understand anyway so this is mostly acdemic to me.

It's a shooting game, though. Like the many Touhou games I have imported, it's not like you actually have to read the text to get full enjoyment.

wait a minute...

so the new game for xbox is just a 2d tetris-like gameplay?

if it's true then what a waste of 3.2 GHz PowerPC Tri-Core Xenon and 500 MHz ATI Xenos

I love my old Super NES but it's BS if they'll give us 16/32bit graphics and gameplay to xbox360.

I read that Microsoft even gives subsidies to game publishers just to secure "exclusive titles".

Hang on, is this SW shooting game going to be on XboX Live? Because that might explain things--lot cheaper to make simple games and release them as downloadable for minimal cost. MicroSoft seems to be pushing Live a little bit more now (which could be good or bad, depending).

...for all we know, that SW shooting game could very well be the same touhou-like game previously mentioned, just sold on XBox Live in Japan.

@Selkirk: friends of mine are going to Japan later on, some of them for the 2nd or 3rd time. They mention that one quick way is to mail stuff back home while they're there, leaving their luggage free. Since you're grabbing mostly doujinshi, it might be cheaper for you to try mailing those to your home and putting figurines et al in your bag the next time?

I thought of that, and some of the people in my group did exactly that, but meh. I didn't really have that much to get, and prefer to move around light (not to mention saving some money and, let's face it, generally not that good stuff). And, I was mostly only getting doujinshi and books anyway. Not much of a figure person myself... these notwithstanding.

Anyway, the Tiger in Desert Vol.2 is making the rounds on the internet. It's being scanlated now, will probably be done in a week or so.

Most definitely. I'll bet I had a stupid grin the entire time I was reading it after Comiket.
