Warning! This post contains an excess of PVs! The pre-season hype time is here!
⚫ Translation of a 2channel discussion on what K-ON would be like of it was American. Good for a laugh! LINK
⚫ A survey was done that asked the question ‘which manga that has already finished do you want to see resumed?”. The results were interesting mainly because of the percentages. Slam Dunk came in first with 46.9% of the responses!! That was followed by Dragonball (15.2%) and Rurouni Kenshin (13 %).
⚫ An article about the boon that fans of the anime Hanasaku Iroha have had on the area in which it’s set. Fans making pilgrimages have significantly increased the customers for onsen hotels in the area. Unfortunately the actual hotel that is the setting for Hanasaku Iroha no longer operates. Otherwise, imagine what an otaku hotspot that would be come! (a wretched hive of scum and villainy?).
⚫ Hirano Aya apparently thinks that 3 marriages is a good number to have in your lifetime! Or at least that’s what she said on a recent TV appearance. I feel sorry for her first husband.. Hirano Aya seems to have decided to go into Yamakan’s business of whipping up publicity with “colourful” comments. Well, she’s more of a TV idol these days anyway, rather than a seiyuu (by her own choice).
Sacred Seven PV2
Oh my god it looks mediocre. But still…dem spats.
Kamisama no Memochou PV
In that usual JC way, I’m expecting this to be enjoyable and interesting, but probably forgettable.
Higurashi Kira PV
Looks like there’ll be plenty of fanservice and fun in Kira! That’s pretty much what I’m after for this new Higurashi OVA, since the best story is already over and done with.
