In today’s update: Oni wa soto, fuku wa uchi! HD casts out the demons and brings in the good luck with today’s update, including a first glimpse of Suzumiya Haruhi anime designs, the Death Note movie site pre-open, Volume 23 of Replicant magazine and volume one of Dragon Age Pure scoops, the usual ero and figure updates, and Blood+ parties like it’s 1699.

Media Side

  • Kadokawa provides the first web-based glimpse of what we can expect visually from the upcoming Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuu-utsu anime. It’s set for an April launch, but web radio begins on February 10th.
  • Why produce an original OST or image album when you can just play Bach inspired by Blood+? Those yearning for a taste of the Baroque to go with their vampire anime can pick it up on February 15th.
  • The official Death Note movie site is pre-open today, a film based on the manga by the same name.
  • Eyelash explosion alert: a batch of design works from the Basilisk TV anime are online today courtesy of Web Anime Style.
  • The fifth volume of the Kirameki Project OVA will be out on February 24th. Even on the sweatshop wages animators are paid I can’t help but wonder if this is breaking even.
  • Kashimashi Girl Meets Girl has a new episode of web radio online today, as does To Heart 2. What does curry have to do with Setsubun? Saa…
  • The pilot issue of manga serial Dragon Age Pure went on sale January 30th, and Akiba Blog was there. Though it’s arguably worth picking up for the pin-up on the inside of the front cover alone, the manga content seems pretty amusing as well; I’ll try to post some particulars once I’ve picked my way through it a bit more.
  • A promotional video is online today for Konami’s Rumble Roses XX, due out on March 30th for the xbox 360. You can smell the doujin from a mile away…

An email arrived from Kotobukiya last night to the effect that Sela-chan is now shipping; with some luck that will put her on my doorstep tonight. If that’s the case, expect a review as soon as humanly possible. :3
