Random Musings – Comment Page Links Fixed and Macross Airdate

  • Maestro and I have been doing some maintenance on the site in recent days, and it briefly broke the paged comments functionality on the blog posts by incorrectly redirecting some comment page links back to front page. I’ve gotten several emails about this, and I’m fairly certain that we’ve found the problem (caching conflicting with permalink structure) and have fixed it. If you’re still seeing comment page links that redirect incorrectly to the front page, let me know in the comments here or via email.
  • In anime news, according to an announcement at Wonder Festival 2008 [Winter] today, Macross F’s airdate has been set: it’s going to be taking over Shakugan no Shana II’s Thursday 25:25 timeslot on MBS starting April 3rd, 2008. So that means Macross is going to be on Thursdays and GEASS will be on Sundays, though those are only two of the 35+ series premiering in the Spring. :)

      I already saw what comes in Spring and besides Geass and Macross Frontier there’s nothing really that great. At least from first impression.

    • February 24, 2008 at 3:13 pmDeranged

      35? Hell, I better start making space already… =P

    • February 24, 2008 at 3:14 pmoyster

      jaalin news anyone?

    • February 24, 2008 at 3:39 pmRmX

      @oyster: Indeed. Jaalin status would be nice. I’m getting worried.

    • February 24, 2008 at 3:48 pmTotali

      Kirby to the rescue!

    • February 24, 2008 at 3:50 pmthenightsshadow

      Love the “Fix-it” Kirby.

    • February 24, 2008 at 4:08 pmleii

      Sentry goin up!

    • February 24, 2008 at 4:52 pmdivine|s

      35+ new series? Does anyone have a compiled list of what’s going to be airing? I think I’m going to be more selective this season and cut back from my regular 28-30 shows so I have more time to do other things after work…


    • February 24, 2008 at 4:53 pmshadowlancer

      lol that looks like the kirby after he absorbs the engineer from team fortress 2 .

    • February 24, 2008 at 4:56 pmFalconx0101

      Finally! I’m so excited for Macross Frontier!!!

    • February 24, 2008 at 5:01 pmRmX

      @ divine|s: Just wait for Omni to do the seasonal “What shows are coming up” post in around one month’s time. =D

    • February 24, 2008 at 6:10 pmXKlibur

      At last, Macross Frontier

    • February 24, 2008 at 7:05 pmdivine|s


      Yeah, I’ll probably wait until Omni or Hashihime has compiled a list, but I was just wondering if someone else had already done it. :\

    • February 24, 2008 at 8:25 pmOmni

      divine: You can always look at MOON PHASE’s running list – that’s the starting point for my seasonal write-ups, and it’s always updated (the Macross F times are already on there).

    • February 24, 2008 at 8:28 pmEdZ

    • February 24, 2008 at 9:39 pmragnez

      all those shows but no new FMP…

    • February 24, 2008 at 11:56 pmPhil Collins

      35 shows?!

      I think i’m gonna need a bigger hard drive.

    • February 25, 2008 at 1:35 amPAUNCH!

      You win for having Kirby.

    • February 25, 2008 at 10:07 amYukiruchan

      Waiting earnestly for Spring Previews^_^

    • February 25, 2008 at 2:26 pmdivine|s

      Thanks Omni & EdZ.

      I was wondering if there was a Japanese list somewhere.

    • February 25, 2008 at 3:40 pmPhil Collins

      Change the name to Random Kirbiosity?

      Yes folks, i’ll be here all week. Be sure to tip your waiters and waitresses!


    • February 25, 2008 at 6:07 pmA Person

      Wow, 35 shows….yippy! *o* I am so STOKED about the Spring season~ There’re quite a few series that I’m all hyped up about. :O I’m also kinda anxious to see the things Omni will want to watch~

    • February 25, 2008 at 6:35 pmdivine|s

      Okay, I’m ready for Code Geass R2 now. I just “marathoned” the entire first season yesterday (1-25, 2 recaps, + picture book eps). 日曜は暇だよね~

      I’ve been putting off watching it, but thought I should get around to it before the spring season.

      I still haven’t had a chance to go through the entire list of shows, but the obvious ones for me to watch are:
      - Macross Frontier
      - Code Geass R2
      - D.C. II Second Season (P.S. I hope they’re done with the whole Minatsu thing now)
      - plus any shows that are continuing on from this season. e.g. PERSONA -trinity soul-

      Crystal Blaze (クリスタルブレード) looks like it stars Shin’ichirou Miki, Ueda Yuuji, Arai Satomi, Takahashi Mikako, Kobayashi Yuu, Sawashiro Miyuki, Chiba Saeko, and Takahashi Hiroki to name a few. I haven’t seen a show with Hiroki in it for awhile now (not even a minor role).

      Allison & Lillia (アリソンとリリア) stars Mizuki Nana as Allison and Noto Mamiko as Fiona.

      Anyone else see anything particularly interesting yet? Omni?

    • February 25, 2008 at 6:50 pmdivine|s

      Nabari no Ou 隠の王 stars Kugimiya Rie!

    • February 25, 2008 at 9:39 pmIzaak

      I feel so evil now. We’re going to torrent/pirate all of these shows. Wonder if they’ll earn much more if we didn’t.

      Wow, Kirby looks pretty bad ass!

    • February 26, 2008 at 11:52 amTsuki-kun

      Well this are in my to watch list on Spring

      - Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 (After the awesome 1st season I’m sure to watch this!)

      - xxxHolic-Kei/xxxHolic-Tsugi – (I love the manga and the 1st season plus this 2nd season might crossover with Tsubasa now since IG did the OVA)

      - Vampire Knight – (I also loved the manga looking forward to the anime, I hope it won’t be a disappointment)

      I might watch:

      - Nabari no Ou (seems interesting, since Rie Kugimiya is doing the heroine
      - SA ~Special A~ – also looks interesting we’ll see

    • February 26, 2008 at 1:02 pmUnknown Voice

      It seems there’s a lot of good shows coming, including, but not limited to
      Druaga no To: the Aegis of Uruk,
      Real Drive,
      Code Geass R2
      and Kaiba,

      I am certainly excited about next season.

      Nyan nyan nyan nyan ni-hao nyan!

    • February 26, 2008 at 7:49 pmCoriel

      it’s a good thing that macross is gonna take over shakugan no shana, no conflicts on the skeds… and i won’t be over burdened with the amount of anime to watch in a week

    • February 27, 2008 at 3:22 amdivine|s

      I’ve got my initial list narrowed down already.

      Of the 20 listed, there are only 10 I really want to watch. The other 10 are there for future reference/consideration, meaning I’ll probably check out the first couple of episodes and see how they are.

      Vampire Knight looks to be a good one, although I haven’t read the manga. I probably won’t be watching xxxHolic-Kei though since I haven’t seen the first season, but it looks interesting nonetheless.

      Again, my choices on what to watch are heavily seiyuu-driven. i.e. I initially pick what shows to watch based on which seiyuus are cast.

      mashiro and fumi are cool^_^

    • March 6, 2008 at 4:29 amPhoenixSeraph

      A Team Fortress 2 anime would be massive win.
