  2. This is actually an image made for a Japanese pachinko game featuring the AMG main cast (along with several supportive characters). However, I must stress out that is supposed to be promotional material for a game, and not related to an anime production.
  3. Today
  4. AnimEigo Announce YUA Going Out Of Print

    I think the first season is an absolutely wonderful show. I'll have to finish collecting it someday.
  5. Scarred Survivors

    i Just hope when the answers about chapter 46 come along, they won't be condensated in 2 paragraphs. If we can have half a chapter focused on bugs, then we can also have a treat for the rest! A decent review to come later. I'm going to be on Mom's duty for the rest of the evening... *read: shopping`* *shudders**
  6. Yesterday
  7. Battle Angel Alita Movie Trailer Debuts

    I hear that this movie looks to be based on a really bad OVA adaptation that made it super hard to get any more afterwords.
  8. Last week
  9. I think it's pretty obvious now why he was removed... Corrupted by greed (and his wife?) to such an extent... A priest in the end is but a human being too. Evil has many faces.
  10. Winter Wonderland: It's Snowing

    Sheesh! It's been snowing here in Michigan all day and we already have at least 3-4 inches and it's still snowing. It's going to be one of those winter seasons. I'll post pics tomorrow.
  11. some of these i remember well, running across them back when i first began hitting the net at my grandma's almost 20 years ago... My Goddess, has it been that long?!?
  12. Marller Gets a Spinoff

    So Here's the Deal. While I'm still working on the materials for Ex-Driver Will Follow, I seem to be having more inspiration for Like Clockwork in terms of writing and music. I think I have a better shot of getting that episode written and photoshopped faster than that former I listed, so I'm simultaneously working on both. Stay Tuned.
  13. Ah! The following day

    I know that it's been a while since I've updated this story, but the ending of "Ah! The lost contract" had messed up my schedule, making it difficult to find the time to finish chapter 63 in time. So, I'm still working it, as I didn't wish to release a poorly written chapter, just to meet the deadline. I hope that the end result will be worth the waiting.
  14. Welsper the Demon Child

    Don't Worry, Welsper/Velsper will turn back into his usual kitty self at the end of Marller Gets a Spinoff Season Two. According to the rules of BBC's Doctor Who, alternate changes in time are really more like a rug. You can make all the ruffles you want, but it'll eventually be straightened out and lead to the same place.
  15. AMG Winter tales 2017

    Thanks, Keiichi. FFN is acting weird, so here's a link to chapter 9. I'll post it on FFN once that site stops acting up.

  17. Anime: What Series Are You Currently Watching?

    I've jumped back into my anime kick. Now that I've finished with Clannad, I've moved onto Gundam 00, 50 episodes to watch through.
  18. Manga: What have you read lately?

    When I ordered Oh My Goddess! Omnibus Volume 6 from Right Stuf, I saw Ai Yori Aoshi Omnibus Volume 1 on sale. Couldn't resist. Found Volumes 4, 5 and 6 at Book-Off today for $1.00 each.
  19. Your Favorite Anime Shows

    VanDread is still one of my favorites. It's just fun! Just got the Oh My Goddess! OVA episodes 1-3 today. Ah! My Goddess (Season 1) Ah! My Goddess — Flights Of Fancy (Season 2) Ah!

  20. NFL Protest Continues: Hemorrhages More Fans

    Exactly. For the most part, at its core, I think people who are struggling who fight for a cause, have a noble reason to fight for social justice. The problem with these millionaire professional football warriors is that they're not struggling for anything. That's the problem. The wealthy think they are on the same level as the average person when they're not. What happened is that these self deluded professional football players decided to hijack national television, something that normal people would never be allowed to do and would never have access to, and it backfired in a major way. They fractured NFL fans all across the country and it hurt the NFL in ways that they haven't truly realized. The problem I have with them is that they are so far disconnected from normal society that nobody takes them seriously because they don't live in the real world. The problem with them now is that they have developed "tunnel vision". What I mean by this is that this started out as a noble reason but when it backfired, they became so focused on a single point and blacked out everything else on the periphery. This is common among sharpshooters when they become so fixated on a target that they don't become aware of other threats or they miss what's going on around them. The fact that the NFL offered almost $100 million to African American causes and they refused to capitulate illustrates this in great detail. Now, it has escalated to the point where neither the NFL nor the players can back away from this SNAFU. The NFL and these players lost the fight when NFL fans started boycotting the NFL and started burning their NFL gear and merchandise. It reminds me of people who become so enraged that they start burning effigies that reflect the person they hate. When it all comes down to it, it's going to take years for the NFL to repair its tarnished image and many fans will still hold them accountable because they allowed this whole "bend the knee" protest to grow out of control and they did nothing to stop it. When it comes down to it, the NFL players are employees of the NFL and that the owners and the NFL should have stopped this the minute it started. The funny thing about this is that nobody paid any attention until President Trump hijacked the narrative regarding these protests and it ended up turning the entire narrative against the NFL and they lost control. Nobody is denying that these players have the right to exercise their constitutional rights where it concerns protests and free speech. What everyone is angry about is that these players chose the wrong venue, while everyone was standing for the national anthem and the protests were seen as disrespecting the men and women who serve in our country's armed forces as well as disrespecting the American flag. When the national anthem is sung, it's seen as respecting the flag; you stand for the anthem, you place your hand over your heart, it's seen as paying respect to our country, to the flag and to those who have served and sacrificed their lives for our country. This is what these players don't understand and no amount of media "spin" can get the public back on their side. If the NFL were smart, they would cancel all games for 2018 and make some attempt to repair the damage they've done and try to restore the faith that their fans felt for this game. But, I don't see this problem going away anytime soon and I think it's going to be a very long process and it might take years for the NFL to repair their image.
  21. Toppu GP: Thoughts and Feedback

    I plan on reading through chapters 18-20 to see if Fujishima-san has changed the direction or to see if it's just more of the same.
  22. Toppu GP Chapters 18-20 Finally Released

    Toppu GP Chapters 18-20 have finally been added. Thanks to everyone who has been supporting these releases. Check out the forums for more details.
  23. Ah! My Goddess Omnibus Discussion

    Okay, I did receive an update from Dark Horse Comics in regards to the OMNIBUS volumes of the manga series. Judy responded to my inquiry as to whether there were more volumes forthcoming and she confirmed that there were. However, they do not have a timeline for their release dates for the forthcoming volumes. The series is not cancelled, they simply don't have a time-table for their release. Judy simply asked for fans to keep checking the Dark Horse website for any announcements. I do appreciate Judy at Dark Horse Comics for responding back to my email so quickly. I'll report back just as soon as the next volume is announced for release.
  24. Recently, I've been receiving inquiries as to the status of the Oh My Goddess! OMNIBUS volumes. The sixth volume was the last volume to be published and there hasn't been any news regarding future volumes of the manga. However, I have managed to get a response from Dark Horse regarding the release of additional volumes and there is some good news for fans of this manga series. while they cannot confirm when the next volumes will be released, they did confirm that there are plans on releasing the remaining volumes in this series. Unfortunately, they cannot provide a timeline for when they will be released but did ask fans to be patient and to keep updated through the website. Special thanks to Judy, from Dark Horse Comics, for responding to our inquiries and we just ask everyone to also keep checking back here for more updates, as well.
  25. AnimEigo, in an update to their Kickstarter plans to bring the Riding Bean OVA to Blu-ray, they have announced that their next Kickstarter attempt will be to bring Kenichi Sonoda's Gunsmith Cats OVA anime to Blu-ray for their next project. Their Kickstarter projects for the Bubblegum Crisis OVA series and the Riding Bean OVA film has been successful for the anime distributor. This is great news as this represents one of the earlier licenses that AnimEigo has acquired. Can't wait to hear more of this project.
  26. Daily Life with Monster girl

    Honestly, I had never heard of this series before which prompted me to do a Google search on it. From some of the images I've seen, it looks like there is quite a bit of fan-service to the anime series. But, I'll check this series out later and give me impressions on it.
  27. AMG Fanfic Recommendations

  28. Fansubs, Streaming Services, Downloads: Do you still engage?

    Personally, I still use some sites like BakaBT and Nyaa. I remember back in the day when AnimeSuki used to be the major player in anime fansubs. I don't know, I guess I've always enjoyed fansubs because I don't have to worry about interruptions in online streaming or have to sit through commercial ads.

    Marller Gets a Spinoff: The Hellsing Peccasdillo just hit 1,000 views in Japan.

  30. Well, the way it works in Japan, a manga series is released in a magazine offered by the publisher. Then, when there are enough chapters released to be published in a tankouban (or trade-paperback), they are collected and released in manga volumes. The sales from tankouban are what determine whether a manga series continues to be published by that manga publisher. Most manga don't get the chance to be adapted into anime, which is also where a manga publisher may generate revenue from. It's rare that a manga series or anime become so popular that they continue to be published. One Piece, Pokemon, Naruto, Bleach are all examples of where they have become so popular that they continue to be published as manga and produced as anime to this very day. Naruto, has also become the victim of its success, producing entire seasons of anime that is adapted with "filler" material from the manga series. Kodansha's Attack on Titan is just one of the more recent manga titles that has been an anime hit for Kodansha.
