Media Side

  • Those who have been following Dengeki Moeoh for awhile may be familiar with the recurring Hirata Katsuzou “Mogitate Hanjuku Meido” illustrated story segment. Today’s breaking news is that while Moeoh will die a tragic death on December 26th, Hanjuku Meido lives on in some as-yet undisclosed incarnation, courtesy of JVC. Is it an anime? Even Moon Phase isn’t sure yet. Expect further updates in the coming months. This along with Magipoka and the December 28th release of the third and fourth volumes of Queen’s Blade makes me a very happy Hirata fan indeed. It has been speculated that his character is “haitenai” (not wearing them)…
  • Catch a crossfading sample of Shoujobyou’s C69 release-scheduled Real Clannad image album (or CLANN soundtrack, whatever you want to call it) at the circle’s official site.
  • Toranoana is now hosting all four commercials for the Moetan Listening CD if you can’t be bothered to click between the two sites.
  • The first episode of web radio for the upcoming Dai Mahou Touge OVA is online today. Also, another episode of Mahou Sensei Negima radio and My Otome radio / TV.
  • When Media Works represents at Comiket, they do it with style. Sign me up for the B2-size Fuuka poster and the Otona no Moeoh, and maybe the Tony calendar as well.
  • In other Media Works news, a list of Dengeki December release manga is online along with details on the December 27th edition of Dengeki GAO, complete with a Ren mini-figure from DearS.
