YAOI NEWS: Sex Pistols OVA 2 Updates!

Good news! There have been two updates on the Sex Pistols site including the photo to the left which I believe is the final cover for the OVA 2. It also appears they have confirmed the dubbing is now complete. 
There are also links to two sets of "cut" scenes.  I don't know if that means they were literally cut out of the OVA or if 'cut' means something totally different. You can find the first set of cut scenes here and the second set here
They're also now giving details for the normal edition as well as the limited edition and the date is still listed for April 27th of this year. The limited edition appears to be chock full of goodies! I'd list all of them here but I don't trust Google translate to be accurate enough for that.

NEW YAOI MANGA: Viewfinder V6 w/Booklets

Finder no Netsujou aka Viewfinder V6 released today in Japan in two different versions. The Limited Edition includes a booklet in which Asami, Akihito AND Feilong hook up in a threesome!
The Animate Exclusive Edition includes a different booklet with a side story about Akihito finding a 'secret' room and the sexy BDSM hijinks that ensue when Asami finds out what he did (think back to volume 1!) No, this is NOT an April Fools joke as I've been able to see some pics of the booklets.  
I have already inquired with Akadot if they will carry either and it is being looked into. Once I get a firm answer, I will post an update here. I have to go take a cold shower now. @_@

YAOI ANIME: Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi Now Airing!

Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi is now airing in Japan and Crunchyroll has started its simulcast today for premium members. Those without a Crunchyroll membership can see it air on April 15th. I just finished watching episode one and I'm already hooked. Started a little slow and then bam!.. laughing out loud. It definitely looks just like Junjo including the characters and there's even a 'guest' appearance by a Junjo character but only in the background. People have said Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi is a little more realistic in comparison and although it's only episode one, I can already see some of that shining through. I still love Junjo so it's going to take a lot to win me over but this episode was a good start. :-)

YAOI NEWS: Sex Pistols OVA 2 Still On Target?

Sex Pistols OVA 2 has already been delayed twice and is now set for an April 27th, 2011 release date per the site but how accurate is that? I've been monitoring the site and have not seen any updates since the last delay. However, I did find it listed on Japan's for the April 27th release date so I'm hoping that's a good sign. I'll continue monitoring the site and if I see any changes, I'll let you know.

NEW YAOI ANIME: Loveless Dub Releasing 3/29/11

I promised once I saw this up for preorder I would let you know. I've been waiting on posting to confirm the date and some other details with Media Blasters in case online retailers are incorrect, but they have not confirmed at this time. Amazon and Rightstuf both have this listed for a 3/29/11 release date so at this point that's the best date we can go by. Prices between the two retailers are similar with shipping. If you have a bigger order with either retailer you can get free shipping on the DVD. I have mine preordered so once I see it ship, I'll let you know and also post the details.
