Witchblade Review has a review of the first Volume of Witchblade. I agree with most everything they have to say but I feel like they're being polite in their review of the English voice actor. Masane as Witchblade sounds like a porn star "in the middle of it". Go watch the video on Funi's site if you don't believe me. NSFW (click on the video itself to pause it.) I looked around a bit to hear the Japanese voice actress for Witchblade!Masane, but it seems that when she is fighting she's not very chatty. Less talk, more rock, as it were. One other little thing they missed is that there is no blood in the fights, it's this

So, suggestive stuff aside, Witchblade really is a good series. Masane in non-Witchblade form is a very likable character. You really want her to succeed. In addition, the supporting cast is very strong. There are other wielders, aside from Masane, but you'll have to watch the series to learn more about them. I'm not being spoilerific today, kthx.

If you can handle the t&a and the voice acting, there really is a good series beyond the breasts. (unlike the manga, that seems unable to be salvaged at this point...but that's a post for another day.)

ADV Holds Best. Sale. Evar.

ADV is celebrating it's 15th anniversary in a BIG WAY.

All of their new releases are being sold for 15.00! In addition to that, some of the older stuff has been significantly discounted. I mean from 2 to 8 dollars discounted. I'm going to take this opportunity to fill in some holes in my anime collection. I could finish up 3 series for less than 40 bucks.

Dear ADV,
To quote a partridge...
"Hey, I think I love you."

SL Seiyuu

Gah, I really need to get back to Second Life. All the cool stuff happens without me. (but when I am there it is inevitably dull...strange.) ANYWAY!

Gia @ a geek by any other name reports that there is a Seiyuu Training Organization in SL. It's probably all in Japanese anyway.

Doki Doki...again.

In a report that makes me loathe my fellow otaku more than usual, Danny Choo reports that there will be a sequel to Doki Doki Maho Shinpan. The new game is called Doki Doki Maho Shinpan Duo. More poking girls in their bits & pieces with the stylus.

Maid to Order - ha HAH.

screencap snagged from Melon Bread

The ever-awesome Zepy reports that there will be a service where you can hire a maid to sleep "beside" you. Maid cafes are so last week.

In hysterical/fantastic/too cool news, Japanator has found a video of pop star Leah Dizon in a tsundere maid cafe. I now know where I can work when I go to Japan. *_* The video isn't in English, but you can get the idea pretty easily. Watch it! Watch it now! I'll link it a second time.

If you don't know what a tsundere character is, (other than my favorite character type) go read up on it! I have plans to make a top 10 tsundere list...soonish.

Not So Fresh Blog Dump

Some of these news bits may be a couple days late. Sometimes irl gets in the way of my hobbies.


Comic Book Resources has a link to the X-Men "family" solicitations for December. At a glance, Messiah CompleX seems to be the Madrox & Layla Miller show. Layla, you know...she knows stuff... about stuff....right. I have this sudden urge to just wait for the trade.

There is also a link to the Marvel Atlas. (it's there, keep scrolling) This is far more interesting. I love seeing where things are set, especially when the places may or may not exist. Definitely on the list to pick up. rocks my socks. They have an image of the variant cover for She Hulk 22. I find it to be quite bad ass. They also have some screen shots of Jen in the Fantastic Four animated series. (which you can watch on youtube here)

File Under: Do Want
The otaku has a Tencho Muyo Ryo Ohki dvd box set review.
This will be mine. It is just a matter of time.

Kid Nemo Company has a cool T-Elos figure. - Sculpts like this really make me want to play the Xenosaga series - but I've been attempting to find time to play FF12 for roughly 6 months now with no luck.

Kotobukiya has a Catwoman figure (recent outfit with the goggles) up in their Batman series. I could do without the ass to camera picture, but they know what audience they're aiming for with that.

File Under: LOLWHUT.
The crane machine has evolved! It is a robocrane and seems far more fair than all other crane machines combined. Japan only, natch. Check out Danny Choo dot com for the video.

There is an eroge called "Period"
. I can't make this stuff up, folks.
-zepy @ canned dogs found it.

Absolutely Fabulous

"But never mind my couture..."
Classic. And a costume that looks fantastic to this day.

If you are not viewing this page in a rss reader, you'll notice I changed the template. I was just sick of looking at the old one. I have other changes in mind- which will be implemented when I have a little spare time and understand how to edit the blogger specific html. (don't hold your breath).
