- Type Moon News Roundup
- Comic Market 81 Roundup: All the loveliness you can buy at the Type-Moon table at Comic Market 81.
- And the secret movie with the limited edition 3rd Season of Carnival Phantasm is Fate/Prototype. There is also the latest version of Melty Blood in there as well.
- And if you are chilly you can get a Fate/Zero Assassin Hoodie.
- Mahou Tsukai no Yoru gets some delicious screenshots as well.
- The Toys of Comic Market
- Wonderful Nendoroids: Sakura Shinguji from Sakura Taisen and the Princess of the Crystal from Penguindrum are getting little plastic versions of themselves soon. The article implied there might be more Sakura Taisen figures on the way. I hope we can get a Gemini Sunrise Nendoroid as well.
- Figmas as well: Irisviel von Einzbern from Fate/Zero and Princess of the Crystal get some bigger figures as well.
- Speaking of Comic Market
Crunchyroll News has an interesting article with scans from a Comic Market catalog from 1986. At the same time that was going on I suppose the Ushiromiya family was having a bit of a hard time at the annual family conference.
- Enter the Chaos of the King of the Cave
Chaos Theater looks at the Gonzo classic (yes that Studio Gonzo) Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo. They also look at the sacred cows of adapting materials from one medium to another. And so it is not a total sausage fest they also have Kristina Pino from Tomopop. Oh and for Patz I will also mention their review of the Uncharted series.
- Out With the Old and in With the New
The mecha men of Gundam celebrate the old year and look forward to the new year when it comes to animated robots from Japan.
- Welcome to Rock and Roll Night! Welcome to Rock and Fight!
Why has no one licensed Penguindrum? Until that fateful day you can get the Triple H CD. Also for all the fans of classic rock I have the original Rock Over Japan By ARB.
- Read an Excerpt from The Winds of Winter (Next Book in A Song of Ice and Fire)
I think it goes without saying that this chapter is certainly a spoiler for anyone who hasn’t finished A Dance With Dragons. That being the case, I’m not going to say anything beyond I’m excited for the next book. Another excerpt is supposed to be released with the paperback version of A Dance With Dragons. This also makes me feel good about the schedule of the book.
- New Project from Time of Eve Creator
As a big fan of Time of Eve this was a great Christmas present. The new work, that doesn’t have many details yet, will be called Sakasama no Patema and see release sometime in 2012. We do know it is a boy-meets-girl story but creator Yoshiura also describes it as very strange. The promo art looks very nice!
- Codename: Kids Next Door One Piece Tribute
A fun, little unexpected surprise comes with the new digital U.S. version of Weekly Shonen Jump.
- Tintin Technology and the Future of Cinema
This is a really fascniating article, mainly for learning about how this movie was filmed. Beyond motion capture they created a “virtual studio” which allowed Spielberg to pick and choose props/etc. while also decided on filming angles without the usual restrictions of animation.
- NIS Licenses All Four Seasons of Natsume Yuujinchou
I’m really starting to love this company.
The red string of fate connects us all:
