The Rest Of It: Rave Master! You'll Get Caught Up In The! Rave Master!

Another day, another ton of newsbits!

How is this day already gone? I'm pretty sure I just woke up. But even if we didn't get as many news posts up as usual, we shot some really fun stuff, including a brand-new ongoing feature and a special one-time feature. I'm still recovering from the latter. We also recorded the Squadcast, so that should be up sometime earlyish tomorrow. 
 
But on to the rest of today's news!

Anime: 

  • Did you remember that TOKYOPOP did anime? Or rather, does-- they've announced a new box set of Rave Master, if you can imagine that-- the last time any of Rave Master's anime came out was in '05. (There are also currently three copies for $5, rather than TPOP's SRP of $39.99, on Amazon right now.)

  • The Gonzo Watch continues! The company WILL have a booth at TAF, which, combined with the Super Street Fighter IV: Juri news and trailer, tells me that the company is definitely not completely shutting down any time VERY soon.

  • Ever wonder how to get the rights to screen anime? Well, if you're having trouble getting them from one of the anime studios, you can get some of the bigger names via a company called Swank. I got an anonymous tip that linked me to a list of titles (anime and not) available for screening licenses, including the Cowboy Bebop flick (the anime one, not the upcoming live-action, obviously), The Cat Returns, Howl's Moving Castle, and other big names-- but probably for a fee. But I thought it was kinda cool anyway. Maybe we could screen something at Whiskey Media!

  • Aaaaand InuYasha is now available on iTunes dubbed in its entirety. Well, you know, the original series, not the new one. Enjoy!

  • Finally, if you're trying to get some crash space for MTAC Odyssey in Nashville, the con has opened up some overflow rooms at the Embassy Suites Nashville Airport. Play that country music! 
 
Whew.  The day flew by so fast and yet I'm exhausted. Time to go home and snuggle up with some Evangelion 1.11 You Are (Not) Alone on Blu-Ray. What are YOU watching tonight?

I take it judging from the title, Tokyopop is releasing the edited version of the series that they aired of it on Toonami a while back. In Japan, it was originally called Groove Adventure Rave.

I've read the Rave Master in scanlation and I'm collecting the manga. It has a really heartbreaking, but satisfying finale.
 
Isn't Swank also the name of a porn magazine. I actually have a friend who I believe was on the cover of that mag.

Textbooks, I'm watching textbooks tonight. In particular, Electric Machinery Fundamentals by Stephen J. Chapman 4th Edition (and suprisingly it's actually a very awesome and useful textbook but since the campus bookstore only had the hard copy in it was ridiculously expensive at over $200) and Microcontrollers: From Assembly Language to C Using the PIC24 Family by Robert Reese, J.W. Bruce and Bryan A. Jones. (another decent textbook and the only soft cover this semester [I wish the rest were soft covers] coming it at under $100) Although I'm going to crash in a couple hours since I have class in 10 hours.

@FoxxFireArt: 
In a way it is better than Fairy Tail, it has better storyline and battle scenes as far as im concerned.

@Rokujo: Nakajima is funny . Do you still remember their odd hate for upside down pictures?
Rokujoon March 3, 2010 at 6:59 a.m.
@Nerx:  I must admit, I can't recall it very well. I'm actually still in the process of collecting the Rave Master manga. I guess I could read it online, but well, that's not as fun.

@Rokujo: Used to have my full indo set of rave. Now its pretty much in shambles.

Saw some of the Syfy release, and it was not impressing me.
