Random Curiosity

The Daily Dose

  • It was announced at the end of the 25th episode of Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Second Season that a film was in the works and will open in Japanese theaters in 2010. So that should be plenty of time for me to catch up with both seasons.
  • The second promotional video for Sengoku Basara, a video game adaptation for the Playstation 2, is up for streaming at the official website. It premieres April 1st.
  • It was announced by GDH that the company will sell off its game development subsidiary Gonzo Rosso. The company plans to refocus itself on its animation business with Gonzo. I’ve never played any of their games, but I’m sure this is sad news indeed for somebody.
  • Yoko Kamio‘s Matsuri Special SP manga spinoff will be in the July issue of Shueisha‘s Deluxe Margaret magazine. In the same issue will be Kazune Kawahara‘s Enkoi Debut which is the follow up to High School Debut.
  • The artist behind the manga versions of Blood+ and Le Portrait de Petit Cossette is starting two new mangas in April and May in Square Enix‘s Young Gangan magazine.
  • The manga series Twin Spica is getting a live-action TV drama on June 11th. The series will be broadcast on the NHK and actress Nanami Sakuraba is set to play the lead.
  • The next manga for Hellsing creator Kouta Hirano will be featured in the Shonengahosha‘s Young King Ours magazine and its title is Drifters. I’m curious if this will include Hirano’s trademark craziness or not.

    Random Musings – The T-Minus 8 Edition

    Some quick news and updates, which you may or may not have already heard about.

  • There’s no new episode of Tsubasa Chronicle this week, nor will there be one next week because of the high school baseball championship on NHK. Episode 42 will air on August 26th.
  • Speaking of NHK, I’m dropping NHK ni Youkoso! I’m almost caught up with School Rumble, and I’d much rather write about that.
  • There’s a trailer up for Strike Witches on the official website. Click on “ITEM” on the sidebar to get the pop-up that has a link to the video. It is mostly made up of eye candy of the characters flying around in battle.
  • plamo‘s latest stop-motion Gundam videos are based on the Inukami ED, both Aice^5 and Rice^5 versions. And in case you missed it, plamo also made a Gundam version of the Chokotto Sister ED.
  • The first volume of the Mai-Otome Zwei OVA is reported to be due out on November 24th, 2006. The description says that the story will be about a meteorite falling onto the planet, but makes no mention of any specific new characters. In fact, it sounds a lot like they’re just going to be using Arika and friends (not that that’s a bad thing).
  • According to the official site, Blood+‘s second original soundtrack is due out on September 27th, 2006. The first one was so good, I can’t wait to hear the second one. I don’t know which songs they’ll be including though since all of my favorites are already on the first one.
  • Oh yea, I turned 21 years old this past week…
