What an unfortunate way to end this year, by having this very morally-upstanding website flagged by Google Safe Browsing as a malware threat today... Well, rest assured, it's not! For a short time today, there was indeed a suspicious ad being served by one of the ad networks. But all ads from that network have been promptly disabled, until this issue will be sorted out. So Animekon is most definitely clean of malware, and now I'm just waiting for Google to process the request to return Animekon to its former safe-browsing glory.Update:
All good with Google Safe Browsing again.
In the meantime, I wish you all a Happy New Year and all the best, the yummiest and the fluffiest in 2013! And I promise that I will return to posting more frequent updates... at some point! But now, if you'll pardon me, I see some bottles of wine in need of urgent attention...
For the past few days, the official website of the Nyarko-san
TV anime series has been running a countdown
, which reached zero today. And so, an (unsurprising) announcement was made: that the series will continue with a second season - for now we'll simply call it Haiyore! Nyaruko-san 2
, or Nyarko-san: Another Crawling Chaos 2. No release date yet, but the cast and staff from studio Xebec will presumably return for the new season (in 2013?).
Like the earlier adaptations
from 2010, this latest anime series is based on the "high-tension, chaotic comedy" light novels Haiyoru! Nyaruko-san, (...) Continue reading 'Haiyore! Nyaruko-san 2nd TV Anime Announced'...
The 12th volume
of Wakoh Honna's
hentai manga Nozoki Ana
is releasing tomorrow in Japan, bringing with it the announcement
of an anime adaptation of some sorts - OVA or TV series, it remains to be seen. The manga - also known as No-Zo-Ki-A-Na, or A Peephole - has been running on the Moba Man
website since 2009.
Poking the above picture will take you to the local Nozoki Ana gallery
with the manga's covers to date. And Wikipedia's entry
for the manga reveals a risqué story full of pantsu, peeping and - naturally - peepholes. (...) Continue reading 'Nozoki Ana Ecchi Manga Gets Anime'...
Two anime adaptations of Hikaru Nakamura's comedy manga Saint Young Men (Saint Oniisan) are being announced

The next anime adaptation in studio Shaft's series based on NisiOisin's "Monogatari" novels, namely Nekomonogatari (Black)
, has been revealed
to be a TV anime series. The announcement comes from the cover of the Tsukimonogatari novel (the 13th volume in the "Mongatari" series), which goes on sale this week in Japan.
The Nekomonogatari (Black) anime will be previewed in a premiere screening event in Tokyo, on December 29, "before the TV broadcast" - which is thus being hinted (...) Continue reading 'Nekomonogatari (Black) TV Anime Announced'...
Next week's final episode of the ongoing TV anime series Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru!
(Nakaimo: My Little Sister is Among Them!) will be continued, in some sense, wtih an "unaired episode 13" OVA
titled "Ani, Imouto, Koibito" ("Big Brother, Little Sister, Lover"). According to AmiAmi
's online shop listing, the OVA's release in Japan is set for March 27, 2013, on a Blu-ray that will include various other goodies.
The unaired episode will feature all of the heroines from the TV series, which was created by Studio Gokumi, based on a light novel series written by Hajime Taguchi and illustrated by CUTEG.
This year's otome visual novel game Brothers Conflict
is getting a fittingly girlie TV anime series, accoring to a cover note
from the latest issue of Sylph magazine (via MAL
). There are no details about the anime adaptation, for the time being. The game was developed by Idea Factory for the PSP, based on an illustrated novel series, and its official website
should give you a feel for what to expect from the anime.
The game's story follows Ema, a girl whose mother remarried and so she moved into the Asahina Family House, ending up with 11 "brothers". (...) Continue reading 'Brothers Conflict Otome Game Gets TV Anime'...
The first episode of Code Geass: Akito the Exiled
premiered in select Japanese theaters one week ago, and its home video release should follow later this month, on August 26. So, given that the vast majority of (Western) fans have yet to see it, the following screenshots from the OVA's second episode - freshly posted on the official website
- might not make a whole lot of sense... yet.
To get a feel for the OVA's spin-off story, you can watch its first 10 minutes
locally. Once again created by studio Sunrise, this latest Code Geass anime is set (...) Continue reading 'Code Geass: Akito the Exiled Episode 2 Screenshots'...
To anyone who knows about Microsoft Certification Exams, taking one of them without studying is inconceivable. But what if you did it? What if you walked in and took one of these exams without cracking a book? Here's what would happen.
You Take A Big Risk
First of all, you'd be taking a big risk. The odds that you can pass Microsoft Certification Exams without any preparation
are against you in an almost astronomical way. You risk failing, and more than that, you risk losing the faith that others have in your abilities and your faith in yourself. That is a lot to risk. (...) Continue reading 'What Happens If You Take Microsoft Certification Exams Without Studying?'...
