⚫ Anime Announcement: Kingdom (キングダム), a history manga published in Weekly Young Jump is getting a TV-anime, set to air next year. It will air on NHK and the studio is Pierrot. (source)
⚫ Anime Announcement: Date A Live (デート・ア・ライブ), a light novel series has an anime project in the works (the wording was that planning is in progress rather than a proper announcement). This is quite a quick adaptation, I think the LN only has 2 volumes released! (source)
⚫ This week’s sales charts reveal the first volume of the new Working season, has sold 11,233 Blu-ray copies and 6,456 DVDs! It sounds like a lot, but it’s not as strong as the sales of season 1’s first volume, and keep in mind that, as with the first season, this release only comes with one episode and is at the special price of around 3,000 yen (amazon) (source)
⚫ A delay in sending out the special original-content episode that was promised as a special disc for buyers of the Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei Perfect BD Boxset has been announced (source). More poor scheduling management from SHAFT *sigh*.
I’ve been on a bit of a buying spree lately, and of course that means I’ve been stocking up on my favourite kind of otaku collectible: GSC nendoroid petites! I’ve got a large enough collection of these cute little things now that I only really bother to aim for limited/exclusive ones. Newest additions to the club: Nadia, Ranka, Nessa and Fuka (from Disgea 4).
