    • June 8, 2008 at 2:18 amHei

      Thanks for keeping me posted mate.

      These updates are awesome, but it would be nice if you could also post the links to the news you mention. For example, it would be awesome if you could link to the picture you mentioned of To Aru Majutsu no Index as well as post the news.

      Other than that, these news postings really make Random Curiosity even better than it originally was.

      And as usual, I’m far too stupid to click on the news source, in my hurry to comment at 2 in the morning. My apologies, it’s late at night. :)

      Keep up the good work.

      on the MOONPHASE link, there was some information about Toradora!
      what did it say?

    • June 8, 2008 at 6:01 amCherubium

      Wow I thought this would be like once a week are something, not everyday. It’s actually quite a feat to find information everyday and post it up, which shows that you have a lot of dedicaiton and/or free time, or you could be skipping out on things that you should be doing. Well i enjoy being up to date in the anime world as I have very limited knowledge of what is happening.

      tekky99: It’s going to be this fall, but the staff and cast haven’t been announced yet.

      Cherubium: To be honest, apart from slow news days like today, compiling news is generally easier to do than blogging episodes, at least time-commitment wise. On many days, I have just enough time to do something like this, but not enough time to blog an extra series. I also reserve the right not to do a Daily Dose on days when I’m busy or have two series to blog (like on Mondays with Soul Eater and Vampire Knight).

      Sure hope you can keep up doing this as a daily bit. Really appreciate what you’re doing though.

      Nice news material…I also been wondering. Will you be doing Anime previews of the summer season? I usually like to see what is listed from here.

      i want to rant bout moon phase being japanese only and not providing any info in other comprehensible language T.T

      Akamatsu doesn’t need a harem of voice actresses. He’s already got an extremely hot wife who’s at least 10 years younger than him and does cosplay and is a part-time model.
