The Daily Shin Buun 01/10/09

The Daily Shin Buun (literally "New Buzz;' "shinbun" is also the Japanese word for newspaper) is a collection of bits and pieces of news we've gathered throughout the day.

Never enough time in the day for everything!


Vision of Escaflowne
Vision of Escaflowne
Anime:
  • 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.
  • SaiAni reports that the Vision of Escaflowne movie is being released on Blu-Ray starting this month. Oh, FUNimaaaation, I've got a faaaavor to ask...


Manga:

  • 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.


Zzzzzzzzzzz....
