Random Curiosity

The Daily Dose

Hey everyone, a lot of events that have occurred recently left Random Curiosity in a pinch, well kinda ^^’. Divine was a great asset but unfortunately he has left for personal reasons, leaving Omni to once again man the fort on his own. Over the past few months I’ve noticed that the Daily Dose hasn’t made much of a presence like it used to. It was a convenience since it supplied information that everyone looked forward to reading and I felt it made Random Curiosity unique in its own way. I’ve recently contacted Omni and offered my help by doing the Daily Doses in his place. I’m looking forward to working with all of you.

      Umm interesting… What happen to Xamd if you don’t mind me asking?

    • October 24, 2008 at 11:42 pmNazarielle

      Glad to see Omni’s found some more help :D

      •A new season of Full Metal Alchemist has been confirmed.

      holy shit :O If it picks up where FMA left off, I’d love to see that. Although I’m not sure how they’d keep it going to be honest.

    • October 24, 2008 at 11:43 pmArakure

      @Sixthdawn

      Welcome! I hope you can make your self comterbul here. I’m Arakure it’s nice to meet you. I’m looking forword to reading all the The Daily Doses you blog! See you Later! :D

    • October 24, 2008 at 11:45 pmGundam maniac

      Woo Hoo go sixthdawn! lol kinda reminds me of fifthdawn from magic what element is the sixth one? XD

    • October 24, 2008 at 11:46 pmHei

      Nice to see someone helping Omni :P

    • October 24, 2008 at 11:51 pmAznCoffee

      Even though you’ll never replace Divine, I welcome you Sixthdawn. ^^

      I hope that Omni hires some more staff. I want the other new animes to be blogged xD;;

    • October 24, 2008 at 11:53 pmGundam maniac

      I think the other season will not pick up where it left off, it would probably follow the manga, im almost certain it will pick off from where Edward met greed, since that is where the anime begin to develop differently from the manga, and trust me the manga is better than the anime. Watch it!

    • October 24, 2008 at 11:57 pmariesboy

      I don’t know… Haruhi-chan will just delay the 2nd season.

    • October 24, 2008 at 11:59 pmAznCoffee

      (srry for the 2nd comment)

      Yay for 2nd season of FMA and 3rd season of Minami-Ke! xD (I hope they go back to the first season’s production studio)

    • October 25, 2008 at 12:01 amdyh

      Welcome Sixthdawn :D

      @ exe: Omni probably didn’t have the time to do Xam’d.

    • October 25, 2008 at 12:03 amRockfest

      An idea would be to do Saimoe ’08 updates (when you run out of stuff), maybe like major events. The quarter-finals have started and things are off to an explosive start.

    • October 25, 2008 at 12:08 ampimpolla

      wow! welcome! this saily dose was very interesting, i like the idea of full metal alchemist new season! thanks!

    • October 25, 2008 at 12:10 amPea

      @Nazarielle I´d like to see them remake the anime from the beginning though, and I hope they follow the manga´s story.

      But anyway I glad they´ll make the 2nd season FMA is one of my fav anime.

    • October 25, 2008 at 12:23 amJin

      Yeah the FMA OVA pretty much wrapped it up neatly so probably just a anime adaptation of the manga is what lies in store for FMA season two. Honestly id much rather prefer they go off manga over making a sequel.

    • October 25, 2008 at 12:31 amDA

      anyone know when Xam’d gonna come back?

    • October 25, 2008 at 12:35 ampach

      welcome to the new blogger

      YES, Black God getting animated. GREAT NEWS!!

    • October 25, 2008 at 12:40 amA Anime Loving Republican

      Sengoku Basara, Haruhi-chan, Churuya-san, Minami-ke 3rd season, Koi Hime†Muso OVA is what i’m waiting for.

    • October 25, 2008 at 12:46 amHaHa

      wah, welcome!

    • October 25, 2008 at 1:03 amAznSoulBoy

    • October 25, 2008 at 1:41 amChimasternmay

      woa lots of stuff and loving it, and yeah omg Spice and Wolf Returns woo hoo

    • October 25, 2008 at 2:02 amfatalblue

      yah, for a new person to help Omni(Welcome SixthDawn)and a 3rd season of Minami-Ke! boo, for Switch manga ending(I really the it)but at least there’s anime to look forward too…

    • October 25, 2008 at 2:03 amW.Wolf

      “Funimation’s Youtube channel will be planning to air Shikabane Hime.”

      You can catch the first episode and hopefully all the others over at http://www.hulu.com . Completely legit and subbed. Some other anime is there as well Bleach and Naruto being the main ones, but it’s season 1 stuff right now.

    • October 25, 2008 at 2:04 amCharlee

      Man, Black God being animated is definitely good news to me.

    • October 25, 2008 at 2:15 amboggart

      Good job with the Daily Dose. It’s back with a bang, and hope you well as a new staff member of Random Curiosity.

    • October 25, 2008 at 2:41 amRoland

      where is seto no hanayome OVA ??

    • October 25, 2008 at 2:59 amKaitune

      Good to see new blogger! Thank a lot for the news~

      Maria Holic sounds interesting… FMA’s second season sounds great! (Ouran and Darker than Black’s second season any hope??? Well… At least, more chances than before)

      Since my Japanese sucks hard, I wonder what Hetalia Axis Powers is about… From the name and characters’ uniform, is it referring to the Axis of Evil in the Second World War???…. Would be weird and kinda disturbing to see an light heart (and rather cute) anime adaptation….

    • October 25, 2008 at 3:07 ammonochrome

      Axis Powers Hetalia, ftw.

      Also, welcome!

    • October 25, 2008 at 3:14 ammonochrome

      Sorry for the double post, didn’t see the comment above mine, there.

      @ Kaitune
      Axis Powers Hetalia is actually a web comic that’s turned manga. It’s not just about WWII (although it does have strips on the topic): it has things like Sealand declaring independence, Bloody Sunday of 1905 (Russia’s history), etc. It’s actually a pretty fun, lighthearted (and sometimes serious) history manga. The countries that’re present in the manga have some sort of connection to the Allies or the Axis Powers (or both), but I don’t think they’re going to go that far in depth in the anime. :3 The voice acting cast is pretty great, though.

    • October 25, 2008 at 3:42 amParetta

      Devine i miss you. Hope u back a day. >_<

    • October 25, 2008 at 4:15 amyoshikee

    • October 25, 2008 at 4:44 ampsychohare

      wooooot! Fantastic Daily Dose post :D
      u brought me great excitement.. thus i dont think i can sleep right now :D
      FMA and HnI… HELL YEA!

    • October 25, 2008 at 4:51 amdivine

      Good job on your first Daily Dose Sixthdawn!

      Finding news everyday can be somewhat difficult at times though, so I wouldn’t stress over the “daily” thing too much. Every other day, semi-weekly, or even weekly might work out better.

    • October 25, 2008 at 5:32 amhmmm

      Welcome… thats quite a list of things being animated

    • October 25, 2008 at 5:47 amoutcast

      Nooo i’m starting to dislike pizza hut with their product placement

    • October 25, 2008 at 5:48 amtg8

      Huh, PizzaHut infects Kannagi?! Success for series is inevitable :-) CG as a proof.

    • October 25, 2008 at 6:03 amrainnydaiis

      Doing a wonderful job~ keep up the good work and happy to see daily dose back in progress ^^

    • October 25, 2008 at 6:12 amOrphen

      personally i think mx0 would have been better to get animated than Hatsukoi Limited :p

    • October 25, 2008 at 6:39 amAnon

      •A new season of Full Metal Alchemist has been confirmed.

      I came

    • October 25, 2008 at 6:48 amoTAKu

      Hey there and welcome, will be lookig forward to the Daily Doses again!

    • October 25, 2008 at 6:55 amHarper_meister

      Woah! More Spice and Wolf? Excellent! Also nice to see some support for Omni

      Ah yeah, and if anyone’s interested, I recently set an anime blog; and I’ll be covering Tytania, Kannagi, Kurozuka, Index, AkaneIro and Toradora.

      I can guarantee you its not as good as Random C, though. For starters, I can’t watch the raws. And I’m too lazy to take more than 2-3 screencaps. Heh.

      If you are still bothered though: http://detarame.wordpress.com/

    • October 25, 2008 at 7:06 amDONJO

      OMG FUCK YEAH HAJIME NO IPPO I WAITED FOR IT SO LONG LOVE IT ^:^^

    • October 25, 2008 at 7:45 amNerai utsu ze!

      Seriously.. u guys rock! xD

    • October 25, 2008 at 8:08 amNightflame

    • October 25, 2008 at 8:09 amYukiruchan

      Thx for the news!
      A 2nd FMA was interesting to hear about.

      Yoroshiku ne

    • October 25, 2008 at 8:39 amBlue-kun

      428 is going to be awesome. P.A Works animating, Kinoko Nasu as the scenario writer and artwork by Takeshi Takeuchi~.

    • October 25, 2008 at 8:51 amhuh

      Before green gables fuckwesome

    • October 25, 2008 at 8:58 amninja penguin

      The only one that interests me is Black God.

    • October 25, 2008 at 9:16 amunknown2

      A full new FMA season? Interesting how are they gonna pull that ot with all that original content…

    • October 25, 2008 at 9:41 amAldotsk

      Hope to see you work as hard as Divine did, よろしくね。

    • October 25, 2008 at 9:59 amCarcharoth

      Welcome Sixthdawn, and what a lot of news!

      To those asking questions regarding Xam’d, I heard Ep14 won’t be out until the 11th November. No real source on that, if someone knows better I would like to know too, it’s one of favorite series atm.

      As for FMA, that was so exciting when I heard that from the leaked document! Though I really would like to know their antics after the movie, I guess it would a manga adaption. Again with no real source on dates, but I heard that was tentatively put at April 09 season.

    • October 25, 2008 at 10:14 amMesousa

      You forgot the Pani Poni Dash OVA coming in March.

    • October 25, 2008 at 10:22 amBobo

      Could anyone tell me WHY Kazuya Kuroda is doing the chara design for the Higurashi OVAs? The chara design for Kai (by Kyuuta Sakai) was just fine. No need to change it again. Instead I’d have prefered Kuroda working on Spice and Wolf again.

    • October 25, 2008 at 10:52 amboogiekun

      HATSUKOI LIMITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAHOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • October 25, 2008 at 11:19 amSom1

      @ Sixthdawn
      Good Luck on the blogging =D
      And thats quite a long list

    • October 25, 2008 at 1:10 pmlyn

      Welcome …

    • October 25, 2008 at 1:13 pmTrejon

      dont despair! i might not post many comments but im very gratefull for all your daily dose, i always read them. THANKS

    • October 25, 2008 at 3:11 pmcoldfire

      MORE HOLO!!!

    • October 25, 2008 at 3:47 pmGod~Knows~

      Hooooly shit new minami-ke and fma season?! I’m slightly less regretful of my pitiful existence already =)

    • October 25, 2008 at 5:31 pmwong

      uhmm… i was wondering if anyone will be covering kannagi since divine used to do it…

    • October 25, 2008 at 6:10 pmthe_amazing_squiter

      To omni:

      hatsukoi limited must be blog when it comes out. it’s one of the best romance manga i’ve ever seen.

      kiss x sis is a nice manga, however i’m a bit disappointed on the announcement about it going to dvd right away.

      the short clips of haruhi and churuya is a nice sound to my ear however still waiting for 2nd season of the haruhi series.

    • October 25, 2008 at 6:14 pmSadmask

      OH MY GOD SENGOKU BASARA

    • October 25, 2008 at 11:57 pmcsakura

      yay for the return of daily dose!

    • October 26, 2008 at 1:03 amJ

      i wonder if there’s ever gonna be a new season of Full Metal Panic….sigh.

    • October 26, 2008 at 3:42 amSoldaT

      YES!!!!!!! Hatsukoi Limited is getting animated. (party)

    • October 26, 2008 at 7:55 amKarusuke

      Oh yeah FMA is coming back!! I hope it leaves off what happen on the last minute.

    • October 26, 2008 at 2:24 pmDrakron

      No, this FMA will follow the manga instead of … being original.

      Kiss X Sis a DVD series, not much of surprise considering how the manga is “they are going to do it! they are going to do it! NOT!!!!”.

      I am surprised they are going to animate Hatsukoi Limited considering the manga was cancelled, I guess its not only Hollywood that is scrapping the bottom of the barrel.

    • October 26, 2008 at 2:30 pmHighman

      Definetly 2009, Will be great year for anime!

    • October 26, 2008 at 4:11 pmSoldaT

      To Drakron Hatsukoi Limited was never cancelled. It’s completed 32 chapters. You probably mistook with some other manga.

    • October 26, 2008 at 9:41 pmDrakron

      Hatsukoi Limited was canceled, just like Mx0 was canceled.

      They never say “its canceled”, they simply inform the mangaka the serialization is going to end at a certain issue and for better or worst he have to come up with a ending (or not, see Mx0 very open ending) since after that issue there will be no more chapters being published by them.

      I voice my surprise because its not Blue Drop, another series that was canceled after one volume but got animated but Blue Drop was a yuri series and so it filled a certain demographic niche as Hatsukoi Limited is really nothing special in terms of filling a demographic niche.

    • October 26, 2008 at 11:18 pmAbsolute

      Hey, welcome SixthDawn :] great job with the daily dose, I’m definitely excited for the new FMA season as well as Minami-ke and Spice & Wolf xD, hope you can continue to do these from now on!

    • October 27, 2008 at 4:18 amRoxas

      W00t Higurashi, w00t FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST! :D

      Thanks Sixthdawn, happy to have you here. ^^

    • October 28, 2008 at 8:58 amEri

      WELCOME, sixthdawn!

      Omni could use some help right now since divine left a days ago.

      Now, there must be someone out there who is willing to help Omni on the anime blogging this season.

      *sighs*
