⚫ I forgot to mention that that lolirific light novel series I post about yesterday became a really heavy seller after it was widely blogged across the Internets. By the time that Akibablog article was posted, it was ranked 3rd on amazon sales and was just about sold out in Akiba. Wonder if there’ll be an anime ww.

⚫ Hana Jukki, who is credited with ‘series composition’ (a pivotal role in writing the story) for the spring anime Steins;Gate, said that the series cleverly connects all the routes of the game on which it is based.
