It's been an interesting day today.
I was re-reading Disgaea on the way to work when the guy across from me struck up a conversation about anime and manga. I was kind of surprised considering that the bulk of anime fans seems to come from other areas.
We talked about more classic anime like Evangelion, Hellsing, and all the retro stuff. My closet-retro-fan came out and we started a discussion on Robotech, from Macross to the Valkyries to New Generation. The guy was a Minmei fan so I didn't say too much on that subject, since everytime she appears she's either crying or being sappy over Rick (OK, realistically she didn't do that everytime
, but meh the series could have done without her inclusion in the plot, really
So I got home from work not long ago and guess what was in the mail?CAST PRIX 3!!!!!
OMG, I love this serialisation! This volume had lots of really pretty shiny awesome stuff. I wish I had my scanner up but had to settle for photos.
* This month's pinup is Takuya in a tux. Waiiii!
* There's a whopping 24 pages on AirGear Myu. I love the prettiness of it although am wondering where Akito/Agito's straightjacket is. I love the individual and duo shots of Kenken, KENN, Kaji and Syugo. Wheee...TsudaKen as Spitfire...I wonder if he'll wear a red wig? Sleeping Forest doesn't make an appearance nor does Simca so it looks to be an all-male cast. And it looks like those promo pics on the cast list on the website are of an opposing team as yet unnamed.
* I love the D-Boys photocomic. Dorks they are. This month has Kaji, Zukki, Araki and Setomaru in the park playing soccer. Included are the brand new soccer ball, Zukki's ball skills, Kaji's new friend, Araki's shiny hair and Seto's pout.
* There's stuff for the second Death Note movie. Really cool promo pics. Rem looks really awesome and Misa's eyes glow when she uses them.
* There's stuff on the Jigoku Shoujo live action series and the Nana 2 movie. Kazuki appears again in another article with Tomohisa Yuge. More KenKen. Takeru Satou appears in a rather festive article.
* And one of the best sections. The novel collaboration with Takuya. This month is for Christmas and features Takuya in a tux. There are some really good photos.( Preview pics )
