saturday morning cartoon edition

In an unexpected turn of events, it appears that Shiarobo once again has an extra circle ticket and has invited me to tag along with him and Eima to Futaket tomorrow. I still haven’t quite adjusted to the concept but it’s an exciting prospect, especially seeing as I won’t have to get up at three in the morning this time around.

To clarify a bit of confusion, Futaket is tomorrow (March 20th) and is a small convention (188 registered circles) established as a venue for the sale of dickgirl doujinshi. Comiket Special is on Monday (March 21st), and is a much larger affair consisting of two waves of doujin sales cycling through the Big Sight as well as several other events, live acts, anime screenings, etc. I probably won’t be going to this, so check out Jx2C’s blog for more information.


  • There is a trailer for Futakoi Alternative up here. I was pleasantly shocked to see a high production budget and hints of an appealing, serious narrative as opposed to the insipid harem crap that the TV series was; this is an item I’ll be keeping my eye on for sure – if only to figure out what’s going on with the random FLCL-esque action sequence in the middle of the trailer. It reminds me a bit of what I’ve seen of the Air movie, which I need to remember to watch when it comes out on DVD…
  • Ichigo Mashimaro anime broadcast information updated on the official website. Looks like we’ve got a July launch on TBS.

Rit-chan Update

After being filed, shaved, sanded, pinned, puttied and filed again, Rit-chan was ready for surfacing and priming, both of which I did yesterday afternoon. It wasn’t a perfect job, but hopefully the required hand touch-ups won’t look too hideous. I can now start the actual painting process, which may happen today if I’m feeling particularly adventurous.

Tentatively forthcoming: Futaket report, thoughts on Mave-chan, live-action Gokusen, the Tenjou Tenge OVA, and Comic Revolution episode 4.
