[Info] IS beats Hetalia in DVD sales - 10,000 for DVD confirmed?


*4 インフィニット・ストラトス
*5 ヘタリア World Series
*7 バカとテストと召喚獣~祭~
14 フリージング
15 百花繚乱 サムライガールズ
17 クイーンズブレイド
18 映画ハートキャッチプリキュア(特装版)
24 ハートキャッチプリキュア 11
 


This is amazing. Infinite Stratos not only gets out-of-stock situation everywhere, but also defeated the sales of Hetalia for 2 days consecutively; if it beats Hetalia again, 10,000 DVD sales is almost confirmed. Just remind you that this does NOT include BD sales. I'm reading about 28,000 to 33,000 including BD sales, but its just a guess work.

Even more horrifying thing is, if sale of IS is this big, then how big Madoka's sales will be?...... @_@;;;

[People] Wakaki Tamiki, "Mangaka of 'Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai" - Behind story that you can't read without tears



<WAKAKI TAMIKI>
若木 民喜
(1972 May 9~)
he ain't dead
Works:
Holy Crystal Albatross (聖結晶アルバトロス) - 2006
The World God Only Knows (Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai, 神のみぞ知るセカイ) - 2008
Various Oneshots that all failed

Wakaki Tamiki is now one of the popular mangaka from Weekly Shonen Sunday, now serialising 'Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai' for almost 3 years, reaching almost 150th chapter now.

However, behind this success, there is long history behind it. Katsuragi Keima, is actually reflection of 'AUTHOR HIMSELF', Wakaki's life was capturing god. All those expert knowledges and ability to portray parodies in brilliant manner are all coming from his struggling for over 13 years of NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) life.

[Info] Arakawa Under the Bridge gets live action drama + movie!


2011 - Live action drama
2012 - Movie

This was surprisingly unsurprising (...), knowing how entire sequence of ending theme animation for animation was, live action.

It will be hilarious seeing those horrible Japanese actors/actress going all over the top.

[Info] Denpa Onna no Seishon Otoko - DVD/BD will be released extremely early.

  電波女と青春男 ①
> 発売日:2011年5月11日
> 価格:税込¥3,150 (税抜¥3,000)

> 収録内容:第1話
> 映像特典:ノンテロップOP(放映版&絵コンテ版)


Surprisingly, the first volume DVD/BD is releasing 11th of May. This is the same marketing strategy that Starchild did for Seitokai Yakuin-domo, which benefited from it a lot. However, the more surprising thing is that the one who's doing this fucked up strategy is...

"SHAFT".

... yep, that name.

Early release of DVD/BD means they will have absolutely no-time to fix any of the content that is aired. Wtf are they thinking? They are not even showing us PV, and all we know is how busy they are with animating multiple series at once.

I don't know, but this is definitely beneficial strategy IF shaft can handle it.

[Tore] Kizumonogatari Movie will be released in 2012

Source: http://www.bakemonogatari.com/info/
Watanabe Akio is official god. Seriously. Kiss-shot is too hot. (but has band-aid instead of pantsu)

As I said before, Kizumonogatari got movie adaptation, and official website confirmed that it will premiere during 2012. In 2ch, there are jokes going around saying 'it will release in December 30th' or 'Shaft will delay it so it is actually 2013'.

Still, it is awesome that we actually get to hear brief estimation of its screening. Even though it won't have tore-sama, (ㅠㅠㅠㅠ) I still hope for more Chuni-byo Ararararagi + Kiss-shot + Hanekawa nyan nyan.

[Ranking] 'The most entertaning animation of winter 2011 ranking' - from goo

Source: http://www.zakzak.co.jp/society/gooranking/news/20110330/gor1103301055000-n1.htm

I dun know what 'goo' is, but some sort of survey thing, I think.
1. Kimi ni Todoke Season 2
2. Beelzebub
3. Level E
4. Mahou Shoujo Madoka☆Magica
5. Gosick
6. IS: Infinite Stratos
7. Onii-chan no Koto
8. Mitsudomoe Zoryochu!
9.  Kore wa Zombie desuka?
10. Yumekui Merry

If you find something very wrong with the list, you are not mistaken. (Kimi ni Todoke is acceptable, since it is basically 'One Piece' of the shoujo manga.) 2ch guys are also saying this list is fucked up and does not represent majority of the fans other than those 'original manga fans' who voted it without even watching actual animation.

Well, this kind of list always fails. Meh.

[Info] Denpa Onna no Seishon Otoko - animation screen-shot

http://www.starchild.co.jp/special/denpa/news/


The cut scene alone is simply amazing. Asa-ne's character design truly shines + Shaft's BG art sense is also in max work. The problem is when they start to move...

[Preview] Spring 2011 - My anticipation


 *Click to enlarge*

This is my anticipation list for this Spring 2011 releases.
(Staff/Cast thing later on... >_>)

*My Anticipation Ranking/Name/Production Studio/Others

Criteria A: STORY
1. Steins;Gate/White Fox/Nitro+
2. Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Boku-Tachi wa Mada Shiranai/A-1 Pictures
3. Hana-saku Iroha/PA Works
4. C/Tatsunoko Production

Steins Gate of course. AnoHana is a bit ambiguous as it is animation original, but Toradora team means that there are a lot to anticipate. Hana-saku Iroha... PA Works always fail with story but I hope some kind of nice drama. C is for uniqueness


Criteria B: Guilty PLEASURE
1. Hen-Zemi/XEBEC
2. Yondemasuya, Azazel-san/Production IG

Ahahaha, yep. I MUST watch Hen-Zemi, just to see how extreme it will be + Hanazawa ero-kawaii voice. Azazel-san is Shimoneta manga adaptation, so probably try some bits knowing how hilarious Seitokai Yakuin-domo was.

Criteria C: MOE MOE/CHARACTER

1. Hana-saku Iroha/PA Works
2. Denpa Onna no Seishon Otoko/SHAFT
3. Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai Season 2/Manglobe

Hana-saku Iroha has set of extremely-moemoe-kawaii-characters drawn by Mel. In case of Denpa Onna, Elio is brilliant character, and I want to see her doing moemoe kyuun... <3

and even though Kami Nomi is destined to suck, Hakua will make everything better.


Criteria D: STAFF/SEIYUU/CAST

1. Hana-saku Iroha/PA Works
2. Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Boku-Tachi wa Mada Shiranai/A-1 Pictures
3. A-Channel/Studio Gokumi
4. DOG DAYS/Seven Arcs

ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ Sekiguchi Kanami returned!.... Godly character designer who was the entire reason for making True Tears and CANAAN watchable, adapting Kishida Mel's design perfectly. (but I need to here Omigawa Chiaki... omg) AnoHana has toradora team, which is must/A-channel has Saki-team (which I haven't watched yet, but I think it was pretty well reviewed series). DOG DAYS is pseudo mahou shoujo/boy cat dog ear thing with Nanoha staffs, so I'm betting some money there.


Criteria Z: SUMMARY/OVERALL


1. Steins;Gate/White Fox/Nitro+
Official the most hyped/anticipated animation in Japan currently, and I'm on the bandwagon, too. From what I'm hearing, this also has time-loop plot device, but has almost zero plot hole overall. According to the staffs, they are animating the true route part, but also cooperate elements from the different route. I really hope Nitro+ jinx doesn't apply here, and become successful VN adaptation for once.

2. Denpa Onna no Seishon Otoko/SHAFT
Sadly, my anticipation is getting lower as details are revealing. Very very bad opening will definitely turn off infinite amount of people and I'm already one of them. Nevertheless, being Shaft-fag means that I have 'obligation' to love them and hype it as much as I can. Thus, the second place...

3. Nichijou/Kyoto Animation
This caught my attention just by the fact that Kyoto Animation is trying to surpass their limit... Nichijou is an epitome of astral-gag manga. It's brainless, stupid, doesn't even make sense, all the common senses went to Andromeda far away. I haven't watched episode 0 due to my laziness, but it still doesn't change the fact that as Kyoto Animation always do, might break the impossible and become another success. However, I'm expecting fairly bad result compare to other Kyoani productions...

4. Hana-saku Iroha/PA Works
PA Works 10th year project. I don't know... Even though I had this series on the top of two criterion, my personal interest isn't enough to hype this much.  However, Kishida Mel design Sekiguchi Kanami's return is enough to make me watch it with enthusiasm, I know it.

----



...blah.

Plus, I love Mazui so much for subbing both of my most anticipated animations. <3 <3 <3

[Madoka] Mami might get live action AV by TMA.

lol TMA's next production might be Madoka Magica. I still remember the panic of Ore-imo parody AV...

I want Goro aniki as perv-kyuubey.

[Shutage] Steins;Gate DVD/BD listed - Animation of Spring 2011 already determined?

Steins;Gate DVD/BD is now listed on Amazon. AND, the most surprising thing is;

(*Kyuubey)
5th PLACE

Actually, ENTIRE VOLUME of Steins;Gate BD is above 25th place. Pre-airing hype is a bit too much, knowing how Nitro+ animation adaptation has some notorious jinx.

and 1st episode hasn't even aired yet.

So, winner of Spring 2011, is determined? It will depend on capability of whitefox.

[What's New?] Hidamari Sketch - TVA special episode announced.

(inb4 shaft's crazy scheduling)

According to Kirara Carat, new special episode of 'Hidamari Sketch' is announced. Now, we can really expect 4th season now.

(Due to MadoMagi, I will never able to see Ume's character same again... >_>)

[Tore] KIZUMONOGATARI 『傷物語』 is a MOVIE!!!

Source: http://www.bookclub.kodansha.co.jp/bc2_bc/search_view.jsp?b=2837714
"Kizumonogatari Movie Announced!"



"I want to see my adult form now, faggot Shinbo." - Shinobu says


As the rumour said, Kizumonogatari was indeed in movie format, announced through new novel 'Hana-monogatari (花物語). Not known when it will air, but I'm sure it won't be soon knowing Shaft's shit schedule. However, I'm so happy to hear that there are actually things going on with Kizumonogatari animation.. ;_; The best news that covers my misery from delay of Madoka... ;_;

[Madoka] 3rd episode conti, Concept Arts leaked.

Episode 3 Conti:


Key Animation revised by Chief Animation Director;



Certain unethical animator seems to have put some concept arts and contis in auction. Not like I will buy it.

Regardless, some scenes in contis are nothing I've seen in actual episode in anywhere. Don't know key animation are stunning, expected from Shaft. but when they start moving..

    04巻 *,929 11.03.16

Half cut for most series, K-On had 6,000 decrease in sales just from the earthquake impact. Distribution was delayed, many shops were in mass, BD-production factories were critically damaged, people won't spend money. It's actually surprising that K-On sold 23,000 in the first week even with crazy Earthquake/Tsunami after effect. The reason is actually more of Madoka's one month delay of BD/DVD seems to be not entirely coincident, there must be evil-aniplex-calculation behind it...

However, it seems like it is almost inevitable that both sales for IS and Madoka will definitely get nerfed in some serious aspect. If Madoka actually beats Bakemonogatari even in this situation, that will be truely godly. However, situation says it is quite unlikely now...

[Madoka] THE TRUTH OF WITCHFIED MADOKA

Just found heavy spoiler for WITCH-MADOKA's truth from the official website and;;.....





TS:
[Witch of salvation. Property is mercy. It sucks every organism in this planet and leads them to the new heaven (Enchantment) that she made. The only way to defeat this witch is to destroy every misery in this world. Then, witch will mislead that that world is already heaven.]

Bolded the importance. Practically, this guy is impossible to beat unless everyone in this world is happy from head to bottom.

I was reading this.... annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd hold on.

(...)


PLEASE DON'T TELL ME THAT I'M THE ONLY ONE WHO THOUGHT OF THIS SCENE.

Yep.

[Madoka] HOPE FOUND?

Just got twitter from Madoka Magica (lol what the fuck am I doing)


Here it says;

"It will be different from the regular broadcasting, but we will try to adjust it to be able to deliver the episode by April."

*latter parts are 'seeking for understanding' sort of sentence.

Sooo... APRIL BROADCAST.... PLEASE DO IT SHAFT ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ

(but wait, if it is 'not' regular broadcasting.... that means it will be webcast, right?...

fuck it.)

[Madoka] THE END - EVERYTHING DELAYED

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH YOU ARE KIDDING ME, RIGHT?

TV Broadcast + Internet, both will be suspended for a long time. Every BD/DVD release is delayed by freakin one month, too.

omg.... I hate myself so much for being right... (...)... I think both reason works here; 1. Shaft is too busy, 2. Last 2 episodes are on the level of Evangelion. This is bakemonogatari all over again...

Edited: Reworded some part. Apparently, it's not really cancellation. They said 'distribution will be 'suspended', rather than outright being canceled. Nuance is more like 'broadcasting is indefinitely delayed + there is no-plan on airing sooner', not 'It will not be aired in TV forever'.

Edited 2: HOPE FOUND????????????????????

[Madoka] Urobuchi says. 'It is not confirmed if it will actually air'.

 As you see, there were dramatic increase in its ranking after the 'supposed' airing date of Madoka Magica which was delayed. My assumption is, after people realising that there are some possibility that last two episodes might not even air, they decided to just watch BD for hack of it (*lol I'm making absolutely no sense). In this rate, it will definitely beat Bakemonogatari's record for preorder, which was around 2,000.

[Random] Rant rant rant... about blog

World is shit. - mister ikeman says


(*Commenting is available now)

It's been one third of the year since I've started this shit blog. Well honestly, it has been tons of procrastination already. u.u~~

I dropped every anime this season (since they all suck) except Madoka Magica and Infinite Stratos, and due to the earthquake, they are both getting delayed indefinitely, especially Madoka (I seriously wonder wtf Urobuchi did with the ending. There is seriously something fishy about all those delays). Spring season has too much releases, so it's painful to do another 'staff/cast' data base post like I did with winter season. I do have draft of Spring one, of course, but I'm too busy to actually finish it currently. Maybe 3 weeks later when I actually get some free time, I will complete it.

I hear in a lot of 'whatever forums or image boards' talking about how 'the worst Shaft-fag blogger ever' has blog called animapple, which is awesome. Everyone in the internet has to be a fan of something, and if you are a fan, that instantly means that you are crazy. In fact, this can also conclude that every single internet users are crazy. (...eh?...)


Madoka Magica is being my only way to give off stress from my life, currently. Thus delaying is seriously bullshiting me. But from the fact I did nothing to support Japan Earthquake Crisis, I know I'm in no position to complain more. (*assuming that Japan is actually using all those aids+supplies+helps+funds from the world, instead of piling them up and do nothing.... oh wait.. they aren't.)

I still can't read Kanji properly. I don't have time to memorise them anyway, so I manually 'draw' them in my electronic dictionary to translate (I use Japanese to Korean one, which tends to be 1000 times more accurate than Japanese to English). It's extremely effective time waster, and I'm actually doing it. Duh.

Bye.

EDITED: [Madoka] Shinbo Akiyuki: "If I were to direct Spin off or the Second season of Madoka Magica, I want it to be slice-of-life!'

Due to my shit Japuuunese, I was not able to comprehend the thing properly. But;

(Notice that he is mentioning 'Madoka 2'.)

Shinbo says he wants to do slice-of-life spin of of Madoka, or even second season. He says he thinks it is waste to end everything in this series, thus he wants to make something that character doesn't go all in despair or whatever.

I don't care. Shinbo has always been like milking. I don't mind it. It is already milked enough with THREE different manga getting published. More Madoka is pro.

(Of course, this might be a double fake, and Urobuchi might do the script yet again. >_>)

Madoka is not airing next week, either.

I was supposed to be away for 2 week, but just posting this, since it is just shitting me.

Ok. I understand earthquake blablah@(@&$(# things completely. But double episode of shit sucks boob shit RioRio gate instead of Madoka Magica? This is definitely bullshiting. Apparently. MBS will not air any more of Madoka episode THIS MARCH, and they don't even know if they will actually air at all. Same for TBS. It is likely that entire two episode of Madoka getting cancelled.

From 2ch:
魔法少女まどか☆マギカ放送予定の目途がつかず、MBSなどに今後のアニメ予定を問い合わせてみた

魔法少女まどか☆マギカ・・・3月中の放送は無い予定。4月以降は未定(MBSソース) / 今後の放送は未定(TBSソース)
ドラゴンクライシス!・・・20日24:30に第10話。21日の通常時間に第11話を放送(チバテレソース)
これはゾンビですか?・・・21日の通常時間に第10話を放送。3月終了予定の為、調整中(チバテレソース)
フリージング・・・素材遅れで20日の放送無し。その枠でドラクラ!第10話を放送(チバテレソース)
とある魔術の禁書目録II・・・26日25:28に第22話、58に第23話放送(MBSソース) / 3月終了予定の為、調整中(チバテレ)
STAR DRIVER 輝きのタクト・・・20日第23話、27日第24話、4月3日第25話放送(MBS&TBSソース)
-------

What this implies? That last two episode is definitely something along the line of Eva-ending or something like huge earthquake/tsunami apocalypse. Or, there is no reason for specifically canceling the most popular series of the season.

EDITED: Since some of my content in the post was deterministic, I will give you more insight down here;
  • What is confirmed: We get double Rio episode next week. 
  • Estimations: Madoka is not airing next week, but it seems there is 'unconfirmed slot' right before the airing of Rio, thus that's the last hope.
  • Unofficial Rumour (which means it might be troll): MBS has no plan of airing Madoka during March, not even certain if it will airing during April. TBS also has no plan.
