Unremarkable as it was, the recent art-school-anime Hidamari Sketch
will be returning with a second season in 2008, called Hidamari Sketch x 365. The announcement was picked up from various posters by the likes of ANN
, who also foretell of various other events set to take place next year, including a Hidamari Radio program hosted by Yuno's seiyu, Kana Asumi. The radio show starts in January. And the anime, I imagine, sometime later.
Enjoy the updated Hidamari Sketch gallery
in the meantime.

Seems like Miku is becoming quite of a hype these days, thanks to Vocaloid 2's extreme mediatic success. Well, from my part, it's nice to see a loli going up on the charts, even if most western fanboys don't have a clue about what they are drooling on. And since good
entertainment comes in all shapes and sizes (preferably small), GoodSmile announced that they will be releasing a cute chibi-Miku doll, for all of us to take home and do various things to her.
Not surprisingly enough, in the first two days since the announcement was made, thousands and thousands of avid customers invaded the virtual space of Amazon for a quick pre-order, summarizing no less than... 10,000 such shopping sprees. On Amazon only, mind you. There are various other stores there who will probably put Miku's panties to the test, so I expect this pre-order madness to reach the heights of Hazuki-chan's hawtness.
Well, what can I say. Miku looks good, the doll looks cute. All I can do now is wait for the Rin figurine, for a certain, unknown, yet strangely arousing reason, she seems to have more sex appeal to me than Miku.
Poke Miku's a-cups for a trip to the product info.
Thanks Dogs in ze can
for the scoop.
Ahhh, what a fine day... for a party! And not just any kind of party, mind you, but a "Lage-Size Figure Party", straight in the heart of the Akihabara district. The girls at Tokyo Anime Center gave all otakus a huge boner, when they announced
that, between December 2 and December 14 a huge, gargantuan feast will be held there, and all of you horny and thirsty folks can attend and be amazed by the large collection of life-sized dolls presented by Paper Moon.
Around 30 of these beauties, ranging from Saber (Fate/stay night) to Sakura (Sakura Wars), will be available for touching, eye peeling and upskirt filming, in an environment dedicated to all of us anime lovers, so be sure not to take your girlfriend (here is a link
to Wikipedia, for all you confused people) to this unique and lovely event.
More, even, if you feel that your pockets are surprisingly full with what we like to call money, you can even purchase one of the dolls on the spot. The price may be a little too high for a hikikomori who rarely leaves the safety of his (full of anime porn) apartment - between 200,000 and 480,000 yen - but hey, it's worth every last penny. Or yen.
I'd like to take a moment of your time to thank ANN
for being so keen as to spot this kind of stuff.
The prime candidate for the Shittiest Game of the Year will blast its way to some obscure corners in retail shops on December 3, promising to blend third-person shooters with anime-style characters and environments, in a "revolutionary new online game" (no, really, I haven't seen such revolutionary crap in ages!).
"What happens when manga meets third-person shooters?" asked Jin Yong, producer of MangaFighter at OnNet USA. "We're eager to let our players find out." (ed. "because we're too disgusted to see for ourselves", is probably what he would've said next)
If you really, really
don't have anything better to do with your time, drop by the MangaFighter website
to see the game in streaming action.
How do you like your loli served? Fresh? In a maid costume? Naked? Or maybe with a twin sister? Ah well, any choice you make, this time you'll have to settle for a nice mouse pad, featuring lovely Rin and her boobs from Kodomo no Jikan. Animate
had their perverted employees work on some other related handy pieces, like a pair of panties
, for those who like to masturbate while sniff-sniffing little girls underwear.
Since I myself don't use a mouse pad (for various reasons, like my pedo comrade spilling vodka on it every time he gets drunk), I might as well get one. Not to put my mouse on it, but to put something else on it. Like a box of tissues
Thanks to Secret Japan
for this lovely and very useful information.
Umm... Cock goes here?
And in other news from the wacky land of Osaka, a security guard was just seized for trying to seek bribe from an elementary school teacher. Yes, I know, elementary and school, when used in the same sentence, cause massive and irreversible boners. The reason for this blackmail is pretty simple: the guard found some photos and videos featuring naked school girls in the teacher's locker, and decided this is a good opportunity for some well earned spendola.
The police, hard workers as we all know they are, are now suspecting that someone from within the school was casually involved in masterminding the whole "let's take some cool pictures" concept, be it when the innocent soon-to-be ladies were taking a shower, changing into their tight swimsuits, or measuring their a-cups for the delight of the audience.
After the guard tried to go on a blackmail rampage, the teacher complained to the Osaka police, and the officials raided the culprit's home - only to find tons and tons of videos, pictures and other stuff involving naked lolis. Poor fellow, he made a terrible mistake. How the hell can a fellow lolicon try to bribe another fellow lolicon for being a lolicon? This just doesn't make any sense to me. Ah well, Osaka, the land of all possibilities.

Light romantic comedies are sometimes my thing. Especially when I am totally drunk and I will certainly forget about it until tomorrow. So it's no wonder I felt strangely aroused when I found out that MediaWorks (some sort of Japanese publisher) announced an adaptation after Yusaku Igurashi's Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, a cute light novel with a lot of potential for an anime series.
Why do I say potential? Well, with all the crap that's floating around these days, everything has potential. The story involves a young, plain boy (and probably retarded, like all the boys in animes - except Fukuyama-san, of course), and a hawt (and very young) girl, that turns out to be an enraged otaku. What follows next, I'll let your imagination fly. The show is supposed to be released somewhere next year.
According to ANN
, the staff will look like this:
Munenori Nawa (D.C.S.S. ~Da Capo Second Season~, Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru) will direct the scripts edited by Tsuyoshi Tama (episode scriptwriter on Azumanga Daioh, Chobits). Satoshi Ishino (Excel Saga, Puni Puni Poemy) will adapt the original character designs from the novel volumes' illustrator, Shaa (Kyōhaku Dogs). Mamiko Noto (X television series' Kotori, Witchblade anime's Masane) leads the cast in both the drama CD and the anime as Haruka, while Wataru Hatano (Basilisk's Chikuma, Toward the Terra's Sam) will play Yūto.
US teenagers are pretty fucked up, we all know that. Almost periodically, one of them wakes up in the morning feeling pissed off on the entire world, grabs a gun, a chainsaw or the Transformer he has in the basement and goes to school, shooting random people with a vengeance. Nothing new here. Recently, one similar dude was suspended from his school in Virginia, after the teachers found him writing malicious death notes. Yes, you got me right. Death notes, like in the... Death Note anime/manga.
The little kid was targeting many of his fellow classmates, wishing them a most painful and long death. Not only that, but according to Anime UK News
, similar things happened in China and Taiwan, where people are actually even more weird when it comes to this kind of stuff. Ah well, what can I say.
Ban the fucking show, it is retarded anyway.
Now that we're done with today's boring stories, let's skip to the juicy part: Kanokon
. The name might not mean much for most of us - not yet (other than a phonetical resemblance to Kanon) - but the upcoming anime definitely will! "Why?"
, you dare ask? Well, how about because of this
. Or this
. Or... this
Right, now that I got your utmost attention (wipe that drool off yer face), here's the deal, straight from ANN
: Katsumi Nishino's light novel, "Kanokon" reached its 8th volume yesterday, and with it came a notice saying that the novels will be adapted into a hawt anime. "The romantic comedy follows a country boy named Kouta who transfers to a new high school in the city. On his first day, he encounters a girl named Chizuru, who happens to have a fox tail. He eventually meets a wolf-girl named Nozomu (thus completing the love triangle) and still more unusual members of the student body."Fox tail
? Unusual members
? Oh, and did I mention the loli twins
? This should be good! Poke the twins for the full gallery.
Gundam mecchanophiles, rejoice. As the first season of Mobile Suit Gundam 00 painfully drags on, like a drunkard trying to find the meaning of life in his own pink vomit, the second season is alredy being prepared by Sunrise for next autumn. Through some flyers sent out to Japanese bookstores, ANN
(via Moon Phase) found out that Gundam 00's second season will start broadcasting in October 2008, on the TBS/MBS network. Should anyone still want to waste their time with it, after the 25 episodes of the newly premiered first season, that is.
Meanwhile, the second season of Hidamari Sketch was also announced at an event from a couple of days ago, to be aired in 2008 on the same netwerks mentioned above. Now that's more like it: school lolis never get boring. Nor old.

Was 2012 a good year for lolicon anime fans?
