A flat chest is fine, too!

Right, just had to get that one off my chest. 'Night.
It was far back, in April 1997, when the nightmare took off. For that matter, next month is a perfect oportunity for Japan to celebrate this nightmare (like they do with all nightmares), throughout a series of special events, carefully planned to subdue the entire nation by throwing Pikachus all over the place. Here on ANN, you can read throughout the boring long story of Rica Matsumoto, who seems to have played the role of Satoshi the entire series.

This show has outlived many young girls out there...
Thanks to our fellows over at 4gamer, we find out that Bandai Visual has yet another evil scheme in mind. Working together with NTL (a Japanese gaming studio, bent on eventually taking over the world), they plan to summon forth a PC MMORPG, based on the Big Brawns Pokemons Dragon Ball series. The servers will open for you to feast upon unsuspecting noobs somewere next year, and word is that Akira Toriyama, the nice man responsible for the Dragon Ball concept and all, is closely monitoring the production process. Probably to check on every employee's little sister/daughter.

Well, it does sound interesting enough, and I can smell many folks drawn to this. And i also smell panties.
Now here's a bit of a change from the usual manga-to-anime news. As you might / should know, Makoto Shinkai's latest animation Byousoku 5 Centimeter (5 cm per second) debuted this month in Japan, and we can barely abstain ourselves from watching the first of the three stories fansubbed so far, while stocking up on tissues for the full movie. And thanks to our favorite Shinkai fansite, as of today we can how look forward to another one of his works - though somewhat static this time around.

During a nearly hour-long interview posted on the official 5cm website, and available for online viewing (until April 6), Shinkai reveals that he will serialize a Byousoku 5cm novel in the Da Vinci magazine. He made the announcement right at the end of his interview (see the stream from minute 53:00), so didn't go into any details, aside from saying that the first episode will be released in April.

If you don't plan on watching the whole thing, at least jump to minute 12:00 and wait a few seconds... Would you hit that?
What began as an orgasmic week for prepubescent fans of Studio Ghibli, with the announcement of Hayao Miyazaki's new animation film "Gake no ue no Ponyo" (Ponyo On A Cliff), has since been tainted with all sorts of nasty gossips involving plagiarism, Miyazaki's obsession for his failed director son, and worst of all, an accute lack of lolis from his future-ex-secret project, Ponyo.

Miyazaki (senior) is of course Studio Ghibli's most prominent figure, having been credited with animation films such as Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle most recently, and classics such as Nausicaa, Laputa and Totoro. But at 66 years of age, it seems that his inspiration is running dry, since Gake no ue no Ponyo clearly draws from Andersen's age-old tale "The Little Mermaid". The film's story is about a 5-year old boy named Sousuke, and his goldfish princess Ponyo, who yearns to become human (but as you can see from the picture below, has a long way to go...).


Ponyo will be drawn freely in watercolors, giving it a rather boring classic look. The film will mostly take place in the ocean, and Miyazaki-san plans to animate water and waves in exciting ways. As a downside, it seems that the production will last about 20 months, which is significantly longer than Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle. (...)

As I quietly code my ass off for the new Animekon .v2 website (oh yeah, it's coming!), leaving me poor pedo comrade in charge of keeping things alive around here, I can at least take a break to bring forth the first promo trailer for the upcoming Clannad movie TV series. It's based on Key's game of the same title, animated by Kyoto Animation and with character designs done by Kadonosono Megumi, who also worked on the Kiddy Grade series. And as luck would have it, this trailer here confirmed our recent loli suspicions to the fullest. It's looking hawt!

Clannad anime promo
When you run out of options, there is only one thing left to do: use moe as a pretext to make horny Japanese fanboys buy your otherwise disregarded stuff. This is the kind of strategy Sony decided to follow, in an attempt to commercialize it's Blu-ray disk drives in Taiwan. The campaign, entitled "Be You", promotes the said drives, accompanied by cute and, of course, underaged, anime girl characters, doing various things while playing with themselves on top (or under) the Blu-rays.


Now that's the kind of DVD drive I'd buy. Melon-bread-eating-DVD drive.
See for yourself, it's a kind of a newsflash! Japanese people love anime and manga just as much as they love their little sisters. And their neighbor's sisters. And the Japanese box office charts are here to prove it, as half of the films in this top ten were, last week, somehow related to the anime/manga phenomenon. The newly released Doraemon film, Doraemon: Nobita's Great Adventure Into the Underwearworld, ranked first, closely (and shamelessly) followed by the live action film, Battery (some adaptation after a baseball manga by Atsuko Asano). The eight piece of crap of One Piece was in the fourth position, with Dororo, another live action adaptation after Osamu Tezuka's manga, ranked eighth. In the ninth place we had Sakuran - some movie made after historical fiction manga by Moyocco Anno.

It seems that the only "normal" film in these charts (and by normal I mean not related in any way to little girls or little girls' underwear), was Genghis Khan: To the Ends of the Earth and Sea, also translated as "Genghis Khan: I had it all, then I was so dumb as to go battle the Europeans. Shame on me."
The official Japanese website for Red Garden proudly announces that a Red Garden OVA, entitled "Dead Girls", will hit the mother market somewere on August the 8th. Dead girls, eh? Well, we all know about the holy saying "dead girls don't say no", but is this really a way to attract customers? I never saw the original show, but the plot seems rather interesting. Mayhap I will give a try.


Hmm... dead girls don't say no, but do they like doing it from behind?
After understanding that not all the anime obsessed people have mastered the delightful Japanese language, Toei Animation Inc. decided to re-launch their English website. Currently, this one hosts info about some random show of theirs, with the promise that, in the near future, we will have access to goodies such as trailers, downloads, wallpapers, and much more.

Animekon approves of this, as long they don't forget about us lolicons.
