This Saturday post is the weekly Type-Moon news in addition to the regular APB post on Sunday. If you have any suggestions for what to highlight on the Type-Moon Weekly News Roundup drop me a line via email or Twitter.

  • Beach Blanket Bingo
    A better look at the Beach Queens figure of Aoko Aozaki. There are two version of her. There is a normal version and a RURIHIME version.
  • Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine
    Even more beach time fun with the Blue Gunner.
  • The Shiki Scrolls IV: Oblivion
    Some good shots of the Garden of Oblivion book that was given to audiences at the first screenings of Kara no Kyoukai: Mirai Fukuin. I do wonder what that story is about. I guess it is off to Google to find out.
  • Was There Any Mapo Tofu Ramen for Kotomine?
    Ufotable’s had a big event in their home town of Tokushima-city where you could get some Fate/Zero themed ramen as well as other Type-Moon related food items. Ufotable also made some big announcements about their Type-Moon related plans for 2014 and beyond. Not a lot of details were mentioned but it seems like 2014 will be fun.
  • The First Type-Moon Weekly News Roundup Cub Reporter
    Friend of the blog and fellow Type-Moon fan Wensleydale_ found some Japanese coverage of the event that has a bit more detail about what went on. YMMV on how useful the article is as it is all in Japanese but even a cursory machine translational shows it has some useful tidbits contained within. Maybe one day we will actually see Girls’ Work. Maybe.
  • Let’s All Go To The Lobby
    At look at the ufotable CINEMA theater during the Anime Festival Machi Asobi. There is of course some great Kara no Kyoukai material on display.
  • NYCC Does Not Disappoint
    Saber always finds a way. Even onto the show room floor of New York Comic Con via the Good Smile booth.
  • Waver Velvet: Moe OVERDRIVE
    Tomopop reviews the Sad Summoner Waver Velvet figure with his accompanying joyful mini Rider. Technically the figure is just called Alter’s Waver Velvet but I like my name better.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

While most people take enjoyment of the December holidays I have taken immense pleasure in the sheer number of Type-Moon related announcements this month. It is a good time to be me with so much wonderful material coming out next year.
