Tomoko Ninomiya discontinues Nodame Cantabile

22 01 2009

Tomoko Ninomiya, author of Nodame Cantabile, again takes a break because of her carpal tunnel syndrome, causing muscle weakness in her arms, after the previous on-hold that was due to her being pregnant with her son October, 2008, the same time the symptoms first appeared. I don’t follow Nodame Cantabile myself, but I hope Tomoko will become better as soon as possible! Is CTS curable, though? I don’t know… I hope it is.

Get well soon, Tomoko-chan!

Baby cause of Kimi ni Todoke hiatus

21 01 2009

I really should write about things as soon as I find out, but well, this way you get lots of news the days I write… right?

Karuho Shiina, author of Kimi ni Todoke, takes a break from being a mangaka to become a mother. In place of the Kimi no Todoke manga, the magazine Bessatsu Margaret will feature a new story on Kimi no Todoke by Sanae Shimokawa starting with their March issue shipping on the 13th February; however, the story will not be in manga form but as simple text, like a book.

Will little baby Shiino be a mangaka too, in her latter days, you think? A family of manga authors… could be fun?

Peach-Pit is back in action

19 01 2009

Peach-Pit, the great mangaka duo made up of Banri Sendo and Shibuko Ebara, is, as the title states, back in action since going on hiatus due to suddenly falling ill last month with Rozen Maiden, Shugo Chara! and Zombie-Loan continuing serialization in their respective magazines. I’m a huge fan of Peach-Pit and I’m really glad they’re not ill anymore and that their manga will be continued like they should. On their official website, the duo apologizes to all their fans and the people they have made worry and thanks all those who sent them “get well” messages and more. Don’t worry about it!

D.Gray-man is put on hiatus … again

19 11 2008

Once again the manga D.Gray-man, published in Weekly Shonen Jump, is once again put on hiatus, this time due to the author Katsura Hoshino’s bad health. No date (not even an estimate) has been set for the manga’s continuation yet and how long this sorrowful streak will go on is just a wait-and-see game, for now.

So far you can get your hands on eleven volumes of the D.Gray-man manga in English out of the so far 16 volumes made. IMHO, D.Gray-man is one of the best manga I’ve ever read, so don’t let the word “exorcist” stop you from reading it, if it sounds weird. It is not religious like that, it’s just plainly awesome.

About my week(s).

21 09 2008

Well then, now I’ll write a little about what I probably should have written about in the previous post instead of all the manga I purchased.

As you know, I have been gone for two weeks, and even though I had to go without anime and stuff I still had a good time. You already know that I got my hands of lots more manga, so you know that I have had stuff to read and do while I were away, but most of the time I watched TV (a few more weeks and MTV will have succesfully brainwashed me) and spent time with my several new friends, especially with the ‘Cutest Girl’ I told you about in an earlier post.

On Monday nights we have movie night and we rent a movie and eat some snacks and so, and since I moved in we have rented a new movie almost every night …
We’ve seen movies like Superhero Movie , Forgetting Sarah Marshall , Knocked Up , Meet the Spartans (I just LOVE this movie, no matter how ridiculous it is! XD), Ping-pongkingen (as I always say about Swedish movies, worst crap ever – I hate Swedish movies except maybe one or two) and probably a few more that I can’t remember right now. We also tried, me and the Cutest Girl, to get The Eye with Jessica Alba, not that it matters, and some other horror flicks, but they won’t rent that … the bastards. ;_;

I have done a few more things but they aren’t stuff I see fit or interesting to talk about, but maybe some other time. Until then, pick up an issue of the new YEN PLUS magazine if you haven’t already and have a great time!

P.S. I still haven’t caught up with the anime I’ve missed these two weeks (almost 40 eps) and I will have to save up as I’m going back for at least another week in probably less than an hour, but I did get to watch Code Geass R2 episodes 22 and 23 and also episodes 100 and 101 of D.Gray-man (is it true D.Gray-man is going to end with 103 or a 104 episodes? :O) and I feel a little more at ease after the two week anime hiatus. I wonder if this eight week period is going to end with me hanging myself … なんちゃって

See you next time! じゃまたね
