“Rose Maiden” aka: “Maiden Rose” are manga of the same story I posted about awhile back . In many counties, fans call the sexy-same-sex romantic war manga as an ode to ‘Gone with the Wind.’ Thanks to fans like me ‘Rose Maiden has began to gain steam in many circles. It’s a word-of-mouth graphic novel. I’ll keep you posted.
Rumors are flying that the now defunct manga company ‘TokyoPop’ wants to get back into the ring again. After the movie ‘Priest’ bombed at box-offices, TokyoPop has made the move to go right back into the publishing business and start from the bottom. As for Lady Gaga playing the role of Sailor Moon… It’s a no go, Hikaru!
In the great recession, manga and anime sales have skyrocketed during this holiday season. Cartoons are a billion-dollar business. Cartoons are recession-proof. And no one can’t resist cartoons. Cartoons are sometimes good investments.
The fight is over. They’ll be no more ‘whitewashing’ in Akria now that actor Ken Watanabe has been given a spot in the live-action film. Watanabe, who’s a twice cancer survivor was thankful to be given a role of a lifetime. What’s next for Watanabe-San(Mr.Watanabe)? an Oscar(TM)?
KFC! (Keeping fingers crossed)
Go for broke!
Pass it on!
More ‘Easter eggs’ or ‘Spring Globes’ on the way in the coming weeks!
Go for broke!
That’s All, Folks!
In case you’ve haven’t heard the ‘sad news’….
It’s with a heavy heart to tell you otaku
After 14 years, Tokyo Pop of North America is phrasing out its headquarters.
President Stu Levy made the announcement via his blog.
Saying goodbye to so many friends and stories from the underground will always bring me back the days of Sailor Moon.
Although this may be the last goodbye of ‘Tokyo Pop’.
And I’m not sure if Levy-Sensei has made a wise/bad move to get up the bucket,
For some things….
And so will cartoons!
Stu Levy will have a ‘back up’ plan.
He always has!
RIP Tokyo Pop!
