D.B. and C.B.

September 28, 2008

Piccolo from the upcoming movie Dragonball and yes, it’s James Marsters, the guy who played Spike the vampire from Buffy… Update: Just in case you don’t really believe that James Marsters is really doing Piccolo here’s his profile on IMDB…. I just checked out the release of Dragonball and Cowboy Bebop on The Internet Movie Database much […]

Chibi Links 24-September-2008

September 24, 2008

This branded rice is absolutely crazy… A dumped girlfriend… Current Japanese fashion of slashed jeans and flouncy dresses. I like the first two of the abstract watches the best. Ranging from ice-cream to flight insurance to dry ice to fishing supplies, all from vending machines… The Japanese idea of eating without a napkin…

September 20, 2008

I received an email from Tokyopop stating that they have a manga deal in association with the bookshop Borders and below is the main tag line of the email. Visit a Borders store through September 29where you can buy any four graphic novels or manga and get the fifth free. Choose from popular series like Castlevania, Chibi Vampire, Fruits […]

Millennuim Snow

September 17, 2008

“I guess there’s such a thing as a vampire who hates blood….” Also known as A Thousand Years of Snow or Sennen no Yuki and the two volumes of this manga are created by Hatori Bisco (Ouran High School Host Club) and published by Viz Media. Initially you’re able to tell that this manga’s animation was the stepping […]

Ouran Preview Video

September 12, 2008

Yay!! If your a regular reader of this blog then you’ll know that I have an obsession with Ouran High School Host Club. I managed to find this preview of Ouran with the English dub, granted Tamaki’s voice can be somewhat flouncy but I suppose I’ll get used to it. 🙂 To keep up with all the official updates […]

Collector’s Edition?

September 12, 2008

Just a brief post wondering about the marketing tactics adopted by distributing companies. I read somewhere recently in a magazine that Fullmetal Alchemist’s Movie: The Conquerer of Shamballa is being re-released in a limited edition format with extra features such as commentaries and trailers for other titles. Surely if the licensor really wanted to exploit the cash cow, […]

Name Generator

September 9, 2008

  I stumbled across a Japanese name generator the other day, so I thought to myself “I’ll give it a try!” After typing in my name Klara, here’s the results I got back. According to Rum and Monkey’s name generator. My name Klara means 黒川 Kurokawa (black river) 美弥子 Miyako (beautiful march child). It also warned that it […]

Ultimate Venus

September 6, 2008

“Suspect good looking men more than suspicious looking ones!!” Also known as Kyuukyoku Venus and is published by GoComi. Even though I may have a had recent gripe about GoComi, they do have a few manga gems stashed away in their selection. Normally I only blog about manga which have been licenced into English and so when I discovered that this […]

Entry to Uni

September 5, 2008

I just started my college life which I love at the moment. I think I love since I haven’t actually had any classes yet but that’s beside the point. 🙂 I read a really great post by Alexia which kinda brought home the fact that even though I may be still living at home and getting free […]

Addition to Adventure Reviewed

September 3, 2008

If you remember my Adventure Reviewed post a few weeks ago, I was at the Muse concert. At the time Alexia took a video of a dude with rainbow in front of us during Kasabian, I simply have to post it up. I’m going to add this video to the Adventure Reviewed post but it’s also below. The […]
