Gundam Reconguista in G: We Are With Hell

December 17, 2014

hisui_icon_4040 Has anyone else noticed some extra in the subtext in the ending of Gundam Reconguista in G? They probably have but I have not seen a lot of discussion about it so I felt it was worth bringing it up. I was discussing the song with Carl Li from Ogiue Maniax and he mentioned that it was probably partially just written to have a song with the name of the show in the lyrics. He is almost certainly correct with that assessment. Tomino really does love to throw the name of the show into the opening and closing. But that is not all that is going on here.

All the Titles Fit to License, 2014 Edition

December 1, 2014

As is now a must post for us, here it is, the license list for the year. We are posting early in hopes it can be helpful to people making year end lists and the such. We’ve included all anime, manga, artbooks, light novels, and successful crowdfunding projects for the U.S. on our list. We have not included anything that is available only streaming.

In an odd, and rare we’d say, turn of events there has been the same amount of manga licenses as anime licenses so far this year!

We’ll update the list as the month goes on in case companies have some holiday surprises in store. As always, let us know if we missed anything.

The November 2014 Line-Up

November 30, 2014

narutaki_icon_4040 I’m really liking the new VIZ Jump First Initiative releasing the first few chapters of all these new manga titles. I’ve been surprised to see so many sports titles, but so far none of those have stuck.

hisui_icon_4040 I have been liking Twin Star Exorcists but when we will get Binbougami ga? But Yamada-kun and the Heroic Legend of Arslan are getting anime so it is all good.

The Line-Up is a monthly rundown of new anime, manga, light novel, artbook licenses, streaming/broadcasting announcements, crowdfunding projects, anime/manga projects, and live-action anime/manga adaptions.
