Shin Buun: Kodansha Rears its Head

The days tips and tidbits!


So I'll start today's Buun out with some news via Calaggie at Nigorimasen, who spots Kodansha USA's Akira and Ghost in the Shell (above) releases on Right Stuf. We'd already seen volumes one on Amazon.ca, but now more volumes of each are up, and he makes some notes about the release prices and other aspects of the rerelease.

Far be it from me to neglect the PR of the day, however, and it's all Otakon: the convention announced mangaka Misako Rocks! as a guest of honor, as well as a concert from VAMPS-- HYDE and K.A.Z.'s dream duo-ship. I know a couple of you talked about not being impressed with this year's musical guests for Otakon; does this help any?

It was a relatively light press release day, actually, so I'll move on now to a new blog you guys should consider checking out: Jason Yadao and Wilma Jandoc's new blog, Otaku Ohana. The two work for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, and you should already be familiar with Jason as the author of the Cel Shaded anime column in the paper. It looks like it'll be good fun, so check it out, 'k?

And remember, folks: an apple a day keeps the shinigami away.
