Straight-Up News 12/08/09

A run-down of the last week in news, for those of you who don't read too good.

 Oh man, today's Straight-Up News is so full of anime announcements, it's kind of insane. But there's a fair amount of other news as well, so if you've missed out on anything this week, sit down and get ready for your catch-up!
 
 
As always, here are links to all of the articles we discussed:

- New Code Geass parts One and Two
- Section 23 Scores Skull Man and Maria Holic
- Toriyama is Back with Jiya!
- Moyashimon to Receive Live-Action Drama
- Ponyo, Astro Boy earn Annie Award Nominations
- Crunchyroll Announces Drama Membership
- New Japanese Holiday: Anime Announcement Day?
 
And of course, your weekly WTF. Thanks for tuning in! I feel like this week's was relatively gossip/meme-less, which is unusual. I shall have to redouble my efforts next week!

The return of the Gia/Hat duo, welcome back :P

Totally liking these videos. Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!

@OsakaHugger: I'm a little disappointed it'll be in Yen+, myself. I mean, I'm sure I'll wind up reading the thing anyway, but there are other titles I'd probably rather have in Yen Press. On the other hand, the magazine is as designed to market as it is to provide content, so even if as a fan I don't like it, I can understand why they'd go that way as publishers selling a product.
 
@FLStyle: I have a pretty limited number of hats-- that one was actually Kane's. I have a few other pieces of headgear though...

Quote of the week, "It was very delicious ... I don't know if it's because its from space."

@Slim: I plan on jamming this quote into everyday conversation regardless of context.

Ah the world's oldest beverage now with ISS ingredients. Although it's still no strawberry beer batch #6 7% per volume (I have some friends who brew their own beer and come up with all kinds of crazy but awesome flavours)
 
@AHR:
So does that mean it's the new.

Well.. that is a graphic novel in manga style now if they were to actually bring out a manga series based on twilight i would be forced to go tween hunting

Maria Holic sounds...interesting.
AHR staff on Dec. 9, 2009 at 1:11 p.m.
@Konanda: well played.  but here is my trump card, which actually is getting pretty far away from where this whole meme-battle started, but still....the kung fu of this video is unstoppable.

VICTORY!  
 
 
Also if you want to see another video that may just melt you're brain you need to stop on the news article for the 32 episode of the Squadcast where in a comment I mainly talked about how Gia's female character won't get to see Morrigan in her underoos but she still has a chance with this female bard/rouge in the game and how Bioware sex scenes are fairly tame compared to what you might see in the evening on just regular cable or satellite television.  
 
Towards the end however I posted a video from Tokyo Tribes 2 in response to the talk of prison yaoi asking what peoples thoughts are of said video. 
  
  
   
 This being the video posted there.
