The official website for the K-ON! television anime series has announced on Tuesday that production on a new extra episode has been green-lit. The new animation based on kakifly‘s original manga will be included in the seventh volume of the Blu-ray Disc (limited first pressing) and DVD releases. According to online retailers, Pony Canyon will ship the seventh volume on January 20 of next year.
Even before the latest Pocket Monsters movie opened in Japan, it was already a hit — so much so that the anime has earned a place in the Guinness Book.
Pokémon: Arceus To The Conquering of Space-Time is the world record holder for the animated motion picture with the most advance ticket sales. Before it opened in Japan on July 18, the movie had already pre-sold 2,384,198 tickets.
This is the 12th animated feature since the first Pokémon movie, Mewtwo’s Counterattack, hit Japanese theaters in July 1998.
Riiight, so the former director of Haruhi apologises on behalf of Kyo-Ani (at Otakon 2o09) for the recent recycled Endless Eight Arc. Who stated that he knew about this a year ago and didn’t tell the public (via his blog) about it, otherwise he would get into trouble, and also thought it was going to last for 2 episodes, but turning out to be 6 episodes. And lastly on behalf of SOS-Dan Production Committee Former SOS Dan Production Committee, he trulyapologises to its fans for the obscene direction the series has taken with the hated Endless Eight arc, calling it “inexcusable”.
A boy who was desperate to “power up” after watching “Transformers” started drinking gasoline in emulation of the mechanical heroes of the film, suffering permanent brain damage as a result.
The boy, a 14-year-old schoolboy living in China’s Sichuan area, apparently enjoyed good grades and was good with machines, perhaps explaining his fascination with Transformers.
His parents running a shop selling lighters, he found himself with ready access to lighter fluid, which he began covertly snuffing, in spite of being caught several times. Soon he progressed to filching gasoline in bottles and using the vapours to get high with.
All this apparently took its toll on his cognitive faculties, and soon he hatched upon a scheme based on his viewing of Transformers. Seeing that his mechanical heroes gained power from fuel, he too resolved to try this, and began stealing fuel in mineral water bottles, which he would drink habitually.
Eventually his theft came to light, and he was taken to see a doctor, where it was discovered that he could no longer perform simple sums and appeared to have developed a severe mental disability.
Doctors found him to have become addicted to gasoline, the lead content of which entered his body, causing brain damage. He was subsequently hospitalised in order to curb his addiction.
When asked why he imbibed the fuel, he said only “Because I wanted to power up.”
I made my first noobish edited anime 1200x800px wallpaper! Starring Kyonko as my main image. With thanks to Photoshop and it’s marvellous filter effects and the guy who drawn the artwork for the resources. This is going straight onto my wall. Haha…
Yet again, the 6th episode of Haruhi just came out this week, and continues to play out the infinite loop, or as we call, “Endless Eight”.
Coming from my previous rant post, I’m not really surprised or as pissed off as last week, since I already knew this was going to happen (5 times now). But the new OP and ED made some of it up and kind of cheered me up (the new OP/ED for Haruhi is better than the first in my opinion).
The episode was the same really, Kyon and the rest do some last-minute summer activities, one night Kyon is called to meet up in the park in the middle of the night, only to find out that they’re all stuck in a infinite time loop, with the only way out of it is for Haruhi to be satisfied for what she has done for the summer. The last day of summer, as Haruhi walks out of the restaurant Kyon tries to call out to her, but unsurprisingly fails to do so. After knowing that it’ll just be August 17th the next day, Kyon goes to bed without finishing his homework. But with different clothes and no Haruhi’s Yukata fest.
