24 new animated programs to debut in June, July, and August… including the sequel to last year’s #2 winner of anime of the year. My eyes are also focusing on 2 particular shows, (which I’ve been a huge fan of their manga counterparts for quite sometime now.)
The Wiire: “You have an anime based on Disgaea, airing in Japan right now. Are there any efforts to bring that over here to the States?”
Jack Niida (Nippon Ichi Marketing Coordinator): “Yes, we are actually working very closely with… an anime production company and we are going to bring it over here to the states hopefully by October and maybe into November, and it will be here in the States as a DVD format to begin with, but we are also looking into broadcast. Hopefully Anime Network, Adult Swim, or Cartoon Network… so it’s going to be very exciting later this year.”

I CALL SHENANIGANS!!
Now word is coming out that the story about Windwaker Link, Ridley, and Baby Bowser replacing Mr. Game & Watch, Ice Climbers, and Young Link was indeed complete BS. Apparently the bogus story stemmed from a fake poster on Neo-Gaf. My original source for the info came from GoNintendo, who are 99.9% of the time reliable when it comes to reports like these. Not only that, but the rumor had also made it’s way to these popular websites:
So as you can see, with so many sources reporting the same story, anyone could of easily fallen for it as being true （ ´_ゝ`）
From now on, just like I do with anime, any headlines concerning Japanese games MUST have a Japanese source included, no questions asked.
Not sure if the cover for the game was released sometime ago… but this is my first time seeing what it looks like, (not bad eh?) Anyway, if you haven’t already, you can pre-order the game from Play-Asia this very minute. Melty Blood AC is expected to be released: August 10, 2006.
Exactly as I had promised earlier… I bring to you all, an assortment of direct Disgaea-related media downloads, clips, and what have you.
After last night’s quick purchase of a brand new Sony X-Brite SDM-HS95P LCD monitor, I was a bit surprised to find just how pixelated and distorted some of the images were on the site, especially the background wallpaper and top header _|￣|○
Check out the official Genshiken website. See anything new? If not, then let me point out 2 interesting things real quick. First, notice the new “2006 copyright” mark at the bottom? What could that mean? Also, what’s up with the new splash screen that shows the final scene of Season 1? Hmm. If any official word comes out, I’ll be sure to report back.

Okay, apparently the reports about a possible Genshiken 2nd season anime this October has now turned into a new stand-alone Kujibiki Unbalance anime series. This according the latest blog entry from Moonphase. However, I personally wouldn’t count out Genshiken just yet. In addition, the above K-U image is from Afternoon Magazine, (bonus scan.) And yes, the manga to Genshiken has finally come to an end.
Coming June 23rd
