Today’s Updates

Much other interesting news from the past few days has been covered by Zepy and EvoSpace, for those who haven’t been reading Canned Dogs and Akihabara Channel religiously. There are a few other items percolating that will probably show up here in the morning, in addition to our continued WHF and Futaket coverage; meanwhile if you’re wondering what’s new at Play-Asia and DLsite, we’ve got you covered:

Today’s Updates

As can be seen by the content of the day’s updates, today was World Hobby Festival Ariake 18 Final. I’ll be rolling out posts continuously over the next couple of days based on what was shown there. It was a fun event, bustling with a lot of fans and sculptors who had all worked hard to make it a success. From that perspective it’s a pity it had to end this way, and I’m going to miss it; though this was only my third trip to WHF I’ve grown fond of the way it’s run. No nonsense, no glitz or pretensions to grandeur, just a bunch of folks getting together and geeking out over a shared hobby. I can only hope that Hobby Complex is ready to take over the mantle of second tier convention, as the empty space between Wonder Festivals is still jumping around saying “fill me!”.

That’s it from me for today – regular updates resume tomorrow.

Just a quick update to note that I’m back from Futaket. Had a pretty nice time, all things considered; we started the morning with a speeding ticket, but made it to the event hall on time for circle entry. Because they were checking the ages of all participants (as part of increased precautionary measures due to last year’s crackdown), I was carded for the first time ever in my life in Japan. I spent the event working on sketches for the doujin that I should have been selling there (I ended up only having copies of the old book I put out at Comiket to offer, and sold maybe ten through the course of the day).

The best news by far to come from Futaket was that ABC, the event whose mass media exposure caused much of this brouhaha, is returning. I can’t say more at this point as I don’t want to spoil the event organizer’s hard work by letting things out too early, but it’s confirmed – a reincarnation of the maniac ero event is scheduled for October. More news on this and further impressions of the day at Futaket when I get around to compiling a review (which may be never; I have an abysmal track record when it comes to Futaket reports, but I’ll try hard on this one).

Tomorrow is World Hobby Festival Ariake 18 Final, the last WHF ever. I’ll be heading there bright and early and am thus pretty anxious to get some sleep, but if you’d like to preview the event for yourself the complete circle list can be found here. Back with the fallout in less than 24 hours!

Oh, and if you’re going to the event tomorrow and you happen to read this and would like to meet up, look for the tall, balding gaijin with glasses and an Olympus camera.

Today’s Updates

It’s an omnibus mainichi post tonight, bringing plenty to last through the drought as I slack off tomorrow (Futaket) and Monday (WHF Ariake 18). I’m aiming to update on both days, but not with much of substance other than reports of the days’ events…

Read on for what to do if you have $600 to spend this weekend on a single figure, a look at a potential new PVC from Wafuudou Ganguten, screenshots from Pink Pineapple’s June eroanime release lineup, and more:
