In today’s update: a dizzying assault of a week’s worth of headlines, including: Marimite season 3, the new eroge title from G.J? and hints at a sequel to Crossnet-Pie’s Boin, a fixed release date for Muv Luv Alternative (honest this time, really), a realdoll eroge (…), Comiket Corner, February 2006 figure release schedule, Rushuna’s removable shirt, etc. etc. A fair bucketload of the usual grist that keeps the HD mill wheels a-turning.

Media Side

  • The biggest scoop by far to come out of Japan this week is the announcement of Maria-sama ga Miteru Season 3, set for a 2006 OVA release. For those who have remained faithful through the bitter wasteland that was the past year of yearning for a followup to Haru, our prayers have finally been answered. Perhaps Maria-sama really IS watching. Or would be, if she had a DVD player.
  • Yahoo Movies has a Gin-iro no Kami no Agito page up, with a new and very spiffy 1’50” trailer online in three bandwidth flavors. Perhaps this will be the diamond in the rough of recent years’ tragically mediocre anime cinema.
  • The official Yomigaeru Sora -Rescue Wings- site is now fully online, with character designs, other production sketches and etc. I’m still mildly interested in seeing how this one pans out, although I’m no longer quite optimistic enough to predict a Planetes-class show.
  • December 22nd will see the release of this School Rumble OVA; be sure to scroll down for the single tantalizing onsen screenshot.
  • Weekly Web Radio Roundup
  • Tinami has the first installment of a new webmanga entitled ARITH MAGIC online for viewing.
  • The January 2006 edition of Dengeki Daioh goes on sale tomorrow (October 21st), for those keeping track.

… and that’s a wrap. Remind me not to leave things for the weekend like this again… that, or take away my copy of X-Com. Just have to hunt down an alien base commander, and then it’s on to Mars…
