Straight-Up News: 11/24/09

Everything you need to know about the last week, assuming you care about nothing but otaku news.

Welcome back to this week's Straight-Up News! We had a LOT to cover this week, so I won't waste a bunch of time up here-- let's just go straight into the video.
 
 
Aaaand here are links to all the things we talked about!

Be sure to tune back in next week, OR YOU MIGHT FALL BEHIND. Oh god!

I think I like Lord of the RIngs a lot more now.  :P
 
I'm still scratching my head about the Love Plus thing.  There are just some weird people in this world I guess.

I kind of hope that Zack Efron thing happens just for the lulz.

Man I love this week's wtf.
 Boromir + Yayoi = pure what the...

Gossip???  
Wow... so not suits you Gia to be "girly" 
 
Great vid though!

Some nice news. Only things I really like to comment on are the Spice and Wolf jacket, the Haruhi movie, and the DS story. I have no comment for the Death Note issue. Not that I have nothing to say. I'm just going nowhere near that
 
It's so nice that YEN press is a publisher who actually corrects the mistakes they make in some fashion. Now if only another publisher could learn from that example and drag themselves out of the fiery pit of dung that are their publications, VIZ.
 
The Haruhi movie seems long overdue, but best to take the time and be done right. It will be interesting to see how the quirkiness that Is Haruhi translates into feature length. Lord, don't you imagine that 'un-asking" would be very awkward?
 
Next time I hear someone complain about not getting enough sex. I'll think of this DS story. I wonder where they registered?

@sora_thekey: I can pull off a pretty good valley girl voice, but I rarely get the opportunity ;)
 
@FoxxFireArt: I don't know if they do "registries" in Japan like in the US (instinctively I'd guess that it would be too blatant an acknowledgment of wanting a gift), but if they did, and I was a Japanese guy having a wedding ceremony with a DS game character, I guess I'd register at Yodobashi Camera, one of (if not the?) biggest electronics chains in Japan. ;)

Quoted for big-time truth.
 
I also don't care about this Twilight nonsense. My sister has spent money to watch it three nights in a row at the cinema. Madness I tells you.

Don't...ever...do...that...again.

@FLStyle: Who seriously has that much time and money to spare? Tell her to donate some cash to me!
 
@Black_Rose: BWAHAHAHAHAHA-- I mean, um. Okay. I....promise. :>
FLStyleon Nov. 25, 2009 at 3:43 a.m.
@ethan: I only hope she never meets any of the cast or I'll never hear the end of it!
 
@gia: Get in line, I'm first :P

AGREED
 
I like how you don't bring up how most of us honestly consider you the originator of that Zac is Kira thing.
OsakaHuggeron Nov. 25, 2009 at 2:03 p.m.
Can't wait for KissxSis! I'll get hands on that uncensored...
