Ai no Kusabi Boys Love Novels Get New Anime Remake

ainokusabi-remake “The official Japanese website has launched for a new video anime remake of Rieko Yoshihara’s Ai no Kusabi boys-love novels, more than 20 years after their first publication. The anime studio AIC (Ah! My Goddess, Bamboo Blade) already animated the novels into two video volumes in 1992 and 1994, but AIC’s new project will be 13 volumes long and will launch next fall. For the new project, AIC director Katsuhito Akiyama (Pumpkin Scissors, Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor) and character designer Naoyuki Onda (Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, Blassreiter) are reprising the same roles they performed in the 1992-1994 effort. Yoshihara herself is supervising and writing the scripts. Nobuyuki Abe (Haru wo Daiteita) of On-Lead is directing the sound. Saishin Anime Jōhō reports that Production I.G conceptual artist Atsushi Takeuchi (Ah! My Goddess, Appleseed, Ghost in the Shell) and color key designer Aya Ouchi (Blue Gender, Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure, Pumpkin Scissors) are also working on the project.”

Holy shit. Ai no Kusabi remake?! This makes me very excited and anxious. Tho, I very much loved the first two OVA’s from many moons ago, a remake isn’t always too bad! Aaaaaah! The character design looks so amazing too. lakjsdl;sad;asld

Closer look at the Sebastian Michaelis nendoroid!

006Here’s a closer look at the Sebastian Michaelis nendoroid than the one we previously saw in the issue of Animedia! By Goodsmile. He’s looking mighty fine there! I wonder what his other facial expressions will be? Tho, that might be somewhat obvious if you’ve read/seen the anime/manga~

Comiket 75 Figures

tonytakaLots of amazing new figures were on display at this weekends COMIKET 75! More pics at Hobby Stock, Moeyo and Akiba Hobby.

Rofl, I’m not a collector of ecchi figures but this banana munching Tony Taka rendition by Native really caught my eye–I think I’ll try to get my hands on her whenever she’s released. She looks like a castoffable too! orz. But if I read correctly, I think reservation for this figure starts on January 2009  and the scheduled release date will be June 2009. Price undecided.

Alpha x Omega Villetta Nu

alphaxomega-villettanuUHM. DO FUCKING WANT. The colored version for Alpha x Omega’s Villetta Nu is finally out. SHE’S STUNNING. (T A T)!! It’s too bad, I was expecting news on the colored version for MegaHouse’s Lelouch/Zero, but none so far in this months issue of Hobby Japan magazine.

This 1/8 scale Villetta Nu figure is scheduled for release in April 2009, retailing at a price of 6,615yen. Now, excuse me as I continue to gawk at Villetta’s curvaceous figure and arse…

Sunrise Hints New Code Geass

12291668867070000

On December 10, the January issue of Gakken’s Animedia magazine published a quote from the Sunrise anime studio’s Code Geass unit for its New Year’s feature, “2009 Love & Beef”*:

“All of you have shown us much appreciation and made the DVDs as well as the CDs so popular. Really, we have been blessed with fervent fans…. Thank you very much. Like we have said before, [a major character development happened] but Geass cannot die. It just ended, but we think it would be nice if we can still do something more. In any case, when we can announce something, in the not-so-distant future…”

source; ANN

Wooooow. What? Code Geass season 3? Or perhaps an OVA? But Lelouch is dead (BUT KNOWING SUNRISE, THEY CAN BRING DEAD PEOPLE BACK TO LIFE); this new Code Geass which they speak of wouldn’t be the same without Lelouch, orz. WE NEED THE FABULOUS POSES, MANIACAL LAUGHS, AND HIS BRILLIANT IDEAS/PLANS. But hey, I’m still excited–if this ends up being true–with whatever they will shit out. Can’t get enough of Code Geass (well, at least for me!).

And rofl, I will be updating like an idiot within the next few days as I’ve been so behind on… everything.

GIFT YOKO RITONA

fig-moe-0464Wanted to post about this earlier but lol procrastinating–again. GIFT’s Yoko Ritona is up for pre-order over at HobbyLink Japan and your other trusty online shops! Measuring at a scale of 1/5 (she’s pretty huge), she retails at 9,240yen and will be released this April. More info & pics at GSC.

Will possibly place my pre-order in a few days. She’s gorgeous! Think she’s the first Yoko fig I’ve seen that doesn’t include the gun, which is a shame but–still worth nabbing.

MIRANOSAND. GET.

Watched the SWITCH OVA a while ago and my god, am I in love with MIRANOSAND. Miranosand is the band that does the OP (and ED) for the ova and it’s so amazing. Time to have the OP on repeat on Winamp for the next few days, orz. Glad I found a new band to obsess over–I CAN’T STOP LISTENING TO IIIIIIIIIT!
