Protoculture News: Victor holds auditions for the next Macross heroine

Ever wanted to join the ranks of Lynn Minmay and Mylene Flare Jenius? To save the galaxy through the power of song? If you’re between the ages of 12 and 25, your dreams could come true! Oh, and you have to be an unmarried woman. And send them a demo tape (CD-R, MD, video, DVD) with two songs (if they’re covers, they can’t both be by the same artist).

Amiami has begun taking preorders for the next Kaiyodo / Bome collaboration piece, Honey Bunny Karen & Rio (image gallery). It’s based on an illustration by Shio Sakura that first appeared as a pinup in an unspecified “comic magazine” (I hate to leave it at that, but Amiami is sparse on the details and she has way too long a resume to attempt an educated guess). This pair of bunny girls is slated for an early May release, though those seeking the biggest bang for their yen might be advised to wait for the domestic offering from Diamond. (no more)
