Mangirl! Anime for 2013

So, I'm not exactly sure if this is pronounced, MAN-Girl, or Mon-girl, but regardless, Mangirl! is a new anime about a group of girls that want to make the best manga magazine ever. It's a tad ambitious, but then in the world of anime, what isn't?

The new show, which has some big name staff members behind it, a-la, Kashimashi, K-On, Shin Koihime Muso, Toradora! and Maria Holic Alive, are just a few.

While the premise seems sort of blase, the series could prove to be possible ten on the kawaii factor. So I'll be giving this one a look-see.

Hyakka Ryoran Samurai Bride Trailer

Well, it looks like the girls of Hyakka Ryoran Samurai ... er Girls, are getting the new second season kicked off with a bang, as the two and a half minute long promo clip shows you.

The new season is scheduled to broadcast in Japan, April of next year, and aside from some inconsequential staffing here or there, everyone from the first season has returned to the second.

I'm excited why? Because, news girls, new swords, new moves, less clothes, more ink blotches till the bluray.

Pre-Doomsday, xxxHolic, Arata and more

Well, this holiday season certainly has been a busy one. I'd love to get into all that I've been doing, but that would probably bore you, and just sound like an endless string of excuses for not posting.

But, aside from all that, there has been some cool things that have come up in the world of anime news and such, and after combing over the nets, I found some interesting things that just beg to be mentioned.

Before we get into all that though, I have to say, that since tomorrow is the dreaded doomsday, that it's been nice knowing you all, and hopefully you've done more productive things with your remaining few days or hours on earth. Unlike me, who has spent every waking moment watching old movies on Bluray, and writing fan-fiction, while harassing my friends with annoying text messages.

If you don't know how to spend your last day on earth, then might I recommend a nice cup of coffee, and smooth cigarette. It's not like it'll really matter about the lung…

Anime Art: Christmas Kiki

Since the Christmas season is well under way, I'd thought it was about time that I started spreading the holiday cheer a little; and I can't think of a more adorable, and awesome picture to start with.

So to all you folks that follow, read, and subscribe, I hope you have a great holiday.

If you don't know who's in the picture, I'm gonna put you in the corner for a week, and then make you marathon every Ghibli film ever!

Nekomonogatari and Samurai Girls Season 2

According to some buzz that has been going around, Samurai Girls is finally getting its sequel. Though I was split fifty-fifty on whether it warranted one in the first place, seeing as how much of the main plot was resolved in the first season, even if it was only more or less tied up in the last couple of episodes.

The new season, which is to be called, Hyakka Ryoran Samurai Bride...

Well, that sort of sounds like a bit of a spoiler, doesn't it?

No worries though, I'll watch it anyway, because I'm refined like that.

Another bit of excitement, which has my sack all quivery and shit, is the release date for Nekomonogatari the end of the month. December 31st to be exact... unless they've changed something.

Anyway, I liked Bakemonogatari, and I loved Nisemonogatari, so I'm all but foaming at the mouth over another installment.

So now that I've posted some stuff, I've got to go grab me some lunch, and ponder the unquantifiable aspects of the Otaku Continuum, o…

New xxxHolic, More Fate...

Maybe it's just me, but as I was browsing the internet last night and this morning, all I seemed to see was a mash-up of partially interesting things, and of those the only things that really stood out were either things that had to do with things I'd never get, or things that were only interesting because they were annoying.

I took annoying, because it's been a while since I've had a rant on here about things that annoy me, but since I'm clearly annoyed, I'll start with the first thing on the list, which is news of the new xxxHolic manga continuation, or whatever it's going to be when CLAMP gets through with it.

I'm not as annoyed by the news today as I was last night, when I was reading fellow blogger AstroNerdBoy's thoughts on it, but it's still a baffling mess and stir-fry of WTF.

I can't say that the last several of CLAMP's manga have ended with much clarity, and in fact I'll go so far as to say that they have more or less pete…

AMV: Keep Your Hands Off

I am still wondering why it is that I've never seen this series...

Media Blasters Drops the Ball ... Again

So I was poking around for some news, and came across something that just makes me shake my head sadly. Yet again, it seems as if Media Blasters is proving their incompetence at maintaining their promises of delivering their anime titles when they say they will, and have issued a list of which titles are being delayed, and or out-right cancelled.

According to several places around the internet, the list of titles is quite large, and in some cases the shows that are being delayed or dropped is enough to have the fans up in arms with pitchforks and torches.

Here's the titles getting delayed, and their new release times.
