⚫ Nice 2channel-translation report on the recent Keion concert at Mangajet! LINK ⚫ The Keion TV-anime has broken a record by selling over 500,000 thousand Blu-rays in total! That’s pretty impressive, but don’t forget that it’s a 2-cour anime. So on a per-volume sales basis, there are certainly TV-anime with stronger BD sales, such as…

Daily Update 02.02.11

⚫ There’s some debate over whether Yamakan’s new twitter account is an imposter or the man himself. He previously closed his twitter account, and, as I’ve discussed in previous posts, just recently closed his blog after getting frustrated with some comments regarding his retirement pledge.

Ore no Imouto episode 9

Ratings MOE: ⚫⚫⚫⚪⚪ ERO: ⚫⚫⚪⚪⚪ GAR: ⚫⚪⚪⚪⚪ LOL: ⚫⚫⚫⚪⚪   I really loved this episode! I felt it more than made up for the weirdness of last week by essentially pretending it never happened.
