Never enough time in the day for everything!
- Let's see...the official site for Natsu no Arashi has gone online.
- If you're interested in the super-fanservicey anime adaptation of the super-duper-fanservicey “visual combat book” (think a choose-your-own-adventure) Queen's Blade, Famitsu has some preview shots, complete with pantsu and oppai. Not X-rated, but not safe for work either.
- According to Temple-Knights.com, people who pre-order the third volume of The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi-chan, a 4koma spinoff strip based on The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, from Amazon.co.jp will get a special bonus figure of Yuki-- a Nendoroid Puchi (petit) figure, even. DO WANT! But the volume isn't even due out until July...in fact, the second volume just came out December 20.
- ANN has spotted an interesting tidbit: chick-lit author Cathey Yardley (who is “Asian-Caucasian-American,” whatever that means?) has written a novel whose protagonist is a young woman who is interning at, of all things, a Tokyo-based manga publisher. It's due out April 14.
