FUNimation acquires rights to FMA OVA

14 01 2009

Unfortunately, this news isn’t related to the new FMA anime, but an OVA called Fullmetal Alchemist: Premium Collection which (guess who?) FUNimation has now acquired the license rights to. That’s right, FUNimation – just as always. The OVA will contain English dubs by the original English voice actors that was recorded before the end of last year.

Madhouse animates CLAMP’s Kobato. fall 2009

7 12 2008

CLAMP‘s latest and on-going manga Kobato., about the young girl named Kobato that goes around and makes people happy, or something like that, will be animated by Madhouse for premiere the autumn 2009. As a mid-level CLAMP fan I will definitely check this anime out (and maybe the manga as well, if I find it interesting enough), but as it’s not as tempting to me as the new Fullmetal Alchemist anime that I wrote about in my last entry, I think I can survive the long wait until the latter part of next year.

Kobato is beautiful, as many female Clamp characters, don't you think?

Kobato is beautiful (and cute!), as most female CLAMP characters, nee~?

Teaser for the new Fullmetal Alchemist anime is out

7 12 2008

Finally there’s a date and a trailer for the new Fullmetal Alchemist anime, based on Hiromu Arakawa‘s manga by the same name. As usual I’m too quick too report (I am aware this is turning out to be old news when I write it) and haven’t watched the teaser trailer myself yet, but I’ve become so extremely excited just by the fact that the new FMA anime finally has a set release day: April 2009! Hopefully it’s as good as it’s predecessor (the original anime which has already ended), but seeing as this show is going to follow the canon story of the manga a more than the previous version, it will probably be even much better. Anyway, enough stressful waiting, here is the teaser for you!

Watching the teaser, wait a few seconds and come back again…

So, I’m back. Hmm, that wasn’t very long. I’m sad; writing about the new anime really made me want to see the teaser, and it wasn’t even half a minute! Anyway, I’m still very psyched about the new Fullmetal Alchemist anime and I can hardly wait for spring 2009 to come!

Another week has gone.

26 09 2008

It certainly has, and it was a most fun one. :P
At least parts of it.

I don’t have that much to tell you about this week, but I’ll tell you what I do have. To tell you.
I, of course, brought home more manga and stuff home after this week: vol 1-13 of Bleach, would’ve had up to 14 if I hadn’t accidently bought two copies of vol 2; vol 1-4 of the kiddy shojo manga Shugo Chara!; vol 3-5 of the ever so awesome Fullmetal Alchemist; vol 4 of Sgt. Frog/Keroro Gunsou (or maybe I did that last week?); the first volume of the new Swedish manga called Kick Off!, just a little bit better than I thought it’d be (honestly, I though it’d be crap); vol 1-2 of REBORN!/Katekyo Hitman REBORN!; and hey, that’s not all! I also got a package (although by then I was already home) with vol 19 of Negima! and vol 1-4 Fairy Tail and the third and latest issue of YEN PLUS. Yeah, I’ve got lots of reading ahead of me, and with my not-old-at-all speakers have broken by not being used for a week (I mean, come on! Geez …) that’s a real good thing. Not that’d I wouldn’t’ve enjoyed it otherwise too. That’s not all, folks, I also did lots (and by lots I obivously mean almost nothing) of other, real fun stuff, mostly with the girl next door. ;)

Have it good folks (why the h*ll do I keep saying that!?), see you next time. Btw, I’m leaving again on Sunday. ^^

P.S. Since, as I told you already, my speakers won’t work as they should I can’t watch any anime right now. Do you know how depressing that is after a week of waiting for just that!? You probably do or don’t, I wouldn’t know.





Back for the weekend.

20 09 2008

Hi. I’m back for the weekend. :)
Is that good or bad news? I hope you find it good news, because I don’t like not being wanted. :3

However, now I’m done with that subject. Maybe I shouldn’t have named the post like that? Ah, who cares, let’s just see were this goes. ^^

I don’t currently live at home and haven’t been home for two whole weeks and have barely even been near a computer, but it has not all been bad, I did get my hand on manga for much money, that’s enough. I had written more than double of what is written from start to this sentence but I remembered that I had actually been to the place three times, not two, making all the stuff I had written rubbish. T_T
Anyway, I’ll try to write it more correctly this time, but probably not as detailed. And having that said, I will really make it even more detailed as I write. Well, let’s just wait/write and see. ^^

So, I went to the store in Gamla Stan (Old Town) called SF Bokhandeln (that’s the Science Fictions Bookstore, but they have lots of manga, anime and stuff as well as fantasy and sci-fi books and role-play games such as Warhammer and Dungeons & Druggies Dragons (I don’t know much about that stuff, really, I’m just there for the manga and japanese imports)) three times (not two! >.<) and got quite a lot of great stuff! Only manga, though … But that’s great!

On the first and second visit (can’t divide it, don’t remember) I got the two first and so far only issues of the new magazine YEN PLUS with eleven series (although it’s not all Japanese manga, it’s also Korean stuff that I don’t like as much) and a very complicated page number system (lol), Shonen Jump volume 8, issue 10 (the latest October issue that comes with a paper ANBU mask! :D), volumes one and two of Fullmetal Alchemist (although I’m pretty sure I have both already, somewhere in the mess that is my home), the fourth volume of Sgt. Frog/Sergeant Frog (“Keroro Gunsou” 「ケロロ軍曹」), volume seven of Welcome to the NHK (only one left now!), Death note vol 4 (now I have vol 1-4 in English, vol 1-4 in Swedish and also vol 2 in Japanese) and finally the eighth volume of Air Gear (I had a gap there between volumes 1-7 and 9). That’s probably all, otherwise I’m going senile or maybe I’m just very tired or maybe I have been drugged OMFGNOE! *tired*
Oh yeah, I also got the first volume of the new Code Geass manga.

On the third visit, earlier today before I came home for the weekend, I bought REBORN! (“Katekyo Hitman REBORN!” 家庭教師ヒットマンREBORN!) vol 1-2, even though I have not quite so legally already read past that point, but I wanted to have the volumes for real and wanted to support the author of one of the best mangas I’ve ever read (haven’t you read it? READ IT!), volumes one, two and three of Shugo Chara! (don’t mention that it’s a shojo and a children’s manga, it’s awesome!).

Man, I’m so tired I don’t even know if what I just wrote made any sense. I hope it did, of course, but to find that out you have to read the post and I’m too tired to read now … T_T
And yeah, if it’s just nonsense, I’m so sorry to have wasted you time. xD

EDIT: Oh yeah, I also got the first book of the The Wheel of Time series, The Eye of the World! That explains a lot, money-wise. Haven’t read more than the prologue and a few pages, but that’s because I’ve been too busy and tired. T_T
I’ll return when I’ve read more and give you my opinions about it. Maybe. If I remember. And I’ll also tell you all about my time at the other place when I have something interesting to tell you about it. :)

FINAL WORDS: I’ve had it, I won’t edit this post anymore. I have probably at least one or two things I’ve forgot to write. I’m very tired. I don’t even remember what I’ve written anymore, so I’ll just leave it as it is now, add a few more tags and then I won’t care anymore. Good bye.
