The Daily Shin Buun 12/11/08

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.

Anime:

Shangri-La looks purdy.
Shangri-La looks purdy.


Manga:

  • Broccoli has announced that it'll be holding its final warehouse sale on Friday; may the U.S. branch of the Japanese company rest in peace (and may its awesome employees remain in the industry where I can still see 'em).


Music:

AFROOOOO!
AFROOOOO!
  • FUNimation has issued a press release about the upcoming soundtrack to Afro Samurai: Resurrection, the film sequel to the 6-episode FUNi/Gonzo collaboration. The soundtrack, of course, is by the Wu Tang Clan's The RZA, and apparently the WTC is heading out on tour, so if you're interested, check out the release for dates and locations.


Games:

  • Don't you wish your parent was so cool and so bored that they did something like this on your lunch bags? I feel mildly deprived.


Toys/Swag:

  • In honor of Ah! My Goddess's 20 anniversary, Griffon Enterprise has made a new Belldandy figure. It's beautiful, but I can't help feeling like it belongs on a wedding cake...and like her dress should be made of fondant or some other fancy variation on icing.
    Delicious Belldandy, must eat. Wait...

Gossip:

  • I'll make these quick-- ANN got a hint about a new project from Twin Angel (not the hentai; the other one) creator Monako Sena, and true to form. Sankaku Complex poses a question: have C.C.'s breasts grown throughout Code Geass's two-season run? I think it's sort of a rhetorical question, by which I mean it's more designed to give us an excuse to look for pictures of C.C.'s tits than anything else. But hey, who am I to argue? (Seriously, though, when did C.C. cease being all about her butt? Did I miss a memo?)

Hokay, that's all the debauchery I can muster up at the moment. Sleep good, guys!

That Belldandy is pretty awesome.

I don't mind boob upgrades unless they are too huge. ._.

C.C. is pretty much all that is win in an anime girl.

The Belldandy  figure does look good but I agree.  That dress does make her look like she was meant for a cake or something.  Still love it though!

Dig Deeper into Ah! My Goddess

A boy misdials a takeout order and instead acquires a goddess. Thinking it's a joke, he makes his one wish: for the goddess to be his girlfriend. The wish is accepted, and Keiichi must figure out how to live with his pure goddess girlfriend, Belldandy...and her family.
