The Daily Shin Buun 03/30/09

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.

A rather hefty Buun today, so let's get started, shall we?


Anime:


Manga:

  • Deb Aoki reports that Yoshihiro Tatsumi, creator of the amazing semi-biographical manga A Drifting Life, will appear at PEN World in NYC and the Toronto Comic Arts Festival this spring, so definitely hit up those events if you can!
  • Comics Natalie has word that Hellsing creator Kouta Hirano has a new project underway called Drifters. Unsurprisingly, this manga will involve war-- but a slightly older-fashioned war. Or rather, Japan's Warring States era, and a group of adventurers.
  • Remember that Jdrama based on Twin Spica I mentioned yesterday? Tokyograph notes that Japan's aerospace agency JAXA is working with the NHK on the drama. That's pretty sweet.


Music:

  • I post a lot here, but there are areas I just haven't been able to gain a real fluency in, and one of them is the less mainstream side of Japanese music. If you're looking for a bit more of that, good news: I got a press release forwarded from JapanFiles about purple SKY Online, a new Japanese music “magazine.” Enjoy!


Cons:


Misc:

  • Last, but not least! Crunchyroll's got more Kdramas rollin', including Que Sera Sera, which I've heard good things about.


Sleep tight, kids!

FMAB (Fuh-Mab?) is being simulcast the day of or a week later in nearly most of the Eastern Hemisphere. How many more continents and territories will announce an airing of the series before the U.S. does? Well, there's five more days to go. Oh, and look! April 1st is tomorrow too. Yay. (-_-)

Dig Deeper into Crunchyroll

Originally created as something of a specialty YouTube for anime and other Japanese media and consisting primarily of illicit fansubs, in 2008 CrunchyRoll established deals to legally distribute some popular anime series simultaneous to their Japanese airing.
