⚫ Looks like the convenience store chain, Save On is having a Mayoi Neko Overrun! themed lottery! One ticket is 500 yen, and the prizes have been revealed. Check them out here (there’s figures, a tumbler, keychains, a cushion, a large poster, mousepad, and clear files). The large poster with panchira is especially nice! I would definitely go in this raffle. If only stores in my country did interesting things like this :\
⚫ Infinite Stratos (light novel) volume 7 sold really well – 101,356 volumes in its first week. Now it’s definitely one of the top light novel series!
⚫ It looks like the popular ona-hole company Tenga will be having their logo appear in Tiger & Bunny! Haha, wow! An artists impression:
⚫ New Rurouni Kenshin anime! Wow, that’s going back a while! No word on its format or release date yet. I’m a huge fan of the prequel Kenshin OVAs. I doubt these will be anything on that level, but still, good news! (source)
⚫ After only one episode, the live-action part of 30-sai no Hoken Taiiku has been canceled! By all accounts, it won’t be missed.. (source)
⚫ Information will be released on the new Rance game on the 21st! The official website carries that announcement but when I went to visit it I discovered the rather rude “Japan Only” page. Kuyashii! Don’t blame eroge companies though, after the last incident!
⚫ Sofmap has Steins;Gate/Idolmaster billboard now. LINK
⚫ Daijoubou Mondainai keychain. SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN THIS 2CH MEME TO ME! LINK
⚫ Sad news: Osamu Dezaki has died. He’s a famous anime director who did a lot of movie and OVA works from the 60s to the 90s. I’ll be totally honest and say I never actually saw any of his anime (yeah, not even one) so I can’t really comment on his skill as a director, but it seems he was quite prolific and influential.
