The year has just began and we have so much to look forward to and so much to be disappointed about.
Just around the corner we have the Winter season starting. (Click the link for the Winter Season Chart)
WinD FINALLY released the last ep of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai. But we STILL haven’t gotten the last two episodes of The Daughter of Twenty Faces. We can only hope Live-eviL will eventually get around to releasing them…..
Funimation has been dominating the local anime scene with finally announcing that they got the Evangelion 1.0 movie. I wonder how ADV is taking this news. Though many feel trolled when last month they announced that they got the rights to 10 new shows and then most of them turned out to be more Geneon oldies.
CrunchyRoll has begun taking down all their user uploaded anime and is adding all sorts of legit anime that we can watch in “high def” if we pay a monthly fee. Personally the only reason I even care about them is Shugo Chara, and I can only hope they will start releasing the Doki episodes ASAP. But I have to admit that it’s funny to watch the forums explode ever the change.
I went and tried to add the Touhou Project: A Summer Day’s Dream anime to MyAnimeList.net. We’ll see if my first try at this will get accepted, I thought it crazy that I couldn’t find the show on there to begin with.
The creators of Clonnad, TMA, will be bringing us XXcross, which will of course be Macross Frontier live action porn. That’s certainly something to look forward to destroying my mind with.
And down the road we will finally have the Haruhi Suzumiya and Spice and Wolf novels from YenPress. The second Eva movie, Nanoha’s movie, the final Kara no Kyoukai movie, Valkyria Chronicles anime, a third season of Nodame, Hayate no Gotoku S2, Full Metal Alchemist 2, and SOOoooo much more. And with any luck, this will also be the year to FINALLY give us that second season of Haruhi Suzumiya. I just hope these things don’t get delayed on us, that sure would suck.
And while not exactly in the anime genre.
Fox wins the Watchmen lawsuit. Hopefully the movie will still make it to us in March, time will surely tell.
Microsoft laughed at all the 30GB zune owners as they all bricked on New Years Eve. Thankfully it was only a 24 hour thing, but after something like that they can call their chances of beating the Ipod now nonexistent.
Sony needs a new strategy for their consoles. The PSP isn’t getting the support it needs from game developers. And the PS3 experiences another year of poor sales. Even though the system finally has games worth playing, it’s turning out that most people aren’t even buying them.
We’ve got quite the year in front of us. Happy New Year everyone!
