Managed to get WTF Productions' Freude to work on my comp. Very nice. I love the way the animation has been timed to both the lyrics and the rhythm of the piece. And, of course, there's always excellent music selection (Remember "Winter Born"?).

I think what was interesting was the way it mixed four different styles of animation in such a way you can see they're not really that different. The quality and style changes, but the similar themes are immediately obvious.

Also, The OTP is there at the end. Apparently deliberately. ;)

Got Animage yesterday and there's some great stuff in it. For a start, it comes with a free Kyou Kara Maou clear file.

Not to mention a Princess Princess pin-up.

There's also more information and pictures for Glass no Kantai ('Glass Armada') and full page spreads for Gakuen Heaven, Ouran High-School Host Club, Princess Princess (they're all nurses...), Juuousei, Koi Suru Tenshi Angelique, Harukanaru Toki no Naka de Maihitoyo, Hachimitsu to Clover II, xxxHolic, Gintama, Tennis no Oujisama OAV and more Glass no Kantai. Also Witchblade -- they REALLY have to rethink the main character's chest. Not just the size, but the shape too. Oh well, at least they're staying true to the source material then.

There are tiny previews for Seirei no Moribito (high fantasy, looks cool), Black Blood Brothers (dark vampire fantasy, looks cute), Ki Koushi Enma OAV (the character designs look interesting), the Shakugan no Shana movie, Saint October and Chevalier. Also Powerpuff Girls Z. WTF?

On the events page, I saw a short ad for this. If they're still available, I'll get tickets once I've got my next paycheck.

Finally, there's a spread for Kiba -- although it looks fairly generic, Animage is pointing to the fact that it's an original anime. I wouldn't be interested if not for the fact that it has a strong cast including Yoshino Hiroyuki-san, Miki Shin'ichirou-san and Yamaguchi Kappei-san.

And while I'm posting pictures...

  • Tennis no Oujisama: Gakuensai no Oujisama // Kikumaru at the zoo. Did I mention this game was cheap?

  • Cherry blossoms at Amanuma Park

    I'm glad to hear you finally got the video working. And that you like it. #^_^#

    Also, thank you so much for the KKM picture! I hope at some point they gather all of these great merchandise pics together into an artbook. This one and the Halloween picture kill me.

    There DOES seem to be a KKM book on the magazine racks in the bookshop downstairs. But I've no idea what's in it and it gives no indication on its cover, in either Japanese or English. I wonder...
