Kadokawa Says: License Our Stuff!

Kadokawa offers up a few recent titles for US licensing. Let's see if any of them happen!

Kadokawa Pictures USA-- the branch that officially licenses Kadokawa Shoten's anime and then sort of sub-licenses the usual US licensors to release them –has announced that it's got a few more titles that it's looking at partners for, according to AnimeNews.biz. These three are the currently-running fantasy drama Chrome-Shelled Regios, magic moe comedy Macademi Wasshoi!, and the supernatural drama Ga-Rei Zero.


I'm really more interested in another title than any of these three, though, that was previously announced by Kadokawa USA but has yet to be heard from since, really...and that title, of course, is Spice and Wolf. Yen picked up the manga and light novels, for which I will remain eternally grateful, but...I'd really like the anime, too. Any takers? Anyone? (Via Japanator)

Yeah, I agree with you Gia, it would be nice to see a Spice and Wolf anime licensed here. I have in mind some voice ideas but anywho...GA-REI ZERO?! I would love to see that licensed as well.

It was the first thing I wrote for Anime Vice, months ago in my profile:

Horo is Mine.  Back Off.

Asserting my rights, I hereby hijack this thread and command: Post Your Hot Horo Pics Here.  (if you pull from DeviantArt or similar sites, be sure to credit the original artist.)
 This one is my fave so far:

I unfortunately do not have an artist for this image, which I pulled off an image board a long while ago. But I loves it, my precious.

aw hell, Gia, you're gonna make me break out a source book so I can translate the sound effects.
(part of me wants them to be "nom nom nom")

hang on a sec, maybe I can do this on the internet...  hagu, hagu?

shouldn't that be むぐ むぐ?  [mugu mugu (aka: nom nom nom)]

sorry, in these matters I lean most heavily on the MangaU SFX book (currently buried under 80+ kilos of other manga, since the recent move) and this ungodly helpful site:

is it actually hagu hagu?
rocketbomberon March 25, 2009 at 8:37 p.m.
And yes, that's a very nice pic.  After some consideration, I'm going to forget everything I've tried to learn about hiragana and henceforth decree, the Horo in that image is 'saying' "Nom Nom Nom"

Its almost been a year since Spice and Wolf got announced too :/

I'll jump on the bandwagon that "nom nom nom" is probably what they're GOING for. As for hagu hagu...I dunno, I can kind of imagine that being a sort of growly-eating noise. But you know, I think my mom dropped me on the head when I was little, if that explains anything. (Actually, I just can't explain HOW I can imagine that in mere text. Kinda tempted to record a little mp3 of it now, actually...)

Huh, Ga-Rei Zero is something I might be willing to spend money on. One of these days, I'm gonna finish the last few episode summaries for it. Unfortunately, it's low on my list of priorties at the moment.

That image was made, apparently, by a member of a circle called ndemotte (homepage, the image itself is here). It has two members, koizumi and 200xzoom, but the image is attributed to ndemotte in the imageboard I found the info.
