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.
Black Butler Season One Part One released today. The Limited Edition is now selling at Amazon for $38.99 with FREE shipping within the U.S. It has both English and Japanese languages and English subtitles. More details as well as where to purchase it are located here.
Media Blasters announced on their Facebook page that they will be releasing the Loveless Vocal Collection in early 2011. When asked to confirm what a 'vocal collection' was, they responded:
When originally released this was sub only. The vocal collections are Sub/Dubbed.
What a gorgeous cover! As soon as I see it up for preorder, I'll let you know.
I'm a bit stunned… I'm not sure how I feel about Sebastian's voice in English. Well, I DO know how I feel about it but I'm trying to hold off on making any rash judgments. I think I need the shock to pass first.
What do you think?
Sorry kids… looks like Sex Pistols OVA 2 has been delayed again. As you can see above on the main site, it now shows 4/27/11 and they also posted the below stating the same (yes, it's a terrible translation but you can see where they changed the date from December of 2010 to April of 2011):
As you may or may not know, I'm an avid tweeter (on Twitter) so I was surprised and thrilled to see Media Blasters AKA Kitty Media starting a Twitter account. Anyway, it wasn't long before someone asked them about Crimson Spell V3's potential release (thank you @Shelly_LR from the Yamane Ayano LiveJournal Community for asking!) Here was their initial response:
@Shelly_LR Our manga publishing is on hold for the moment.
Well, I'm not sure what happened but this was their response later in the day:
@TheYaoiReview @Shelly_LR @yamaneayano Re: Crimson Spell 3 -
we're hoping to have it in 2011. We're hoping to reprint Crimson Spell 2 soon.
Perhaps it was because Ayano Yamane was included in a retweet? Who knows! All I know is that we now have some hope for getting more of this fabulous series!
So, what do you think? Excited to see there's hope? Excited to hear anything related to Kitty Media? Make your voices heard!
ANN reported yesterday that there is now a second promo for the new Togainu no Chi boys' love game anime as well as a commercial (links provided in their original post). They also reported that the anime itself will begin airing in October! Here is a post I did previously that has a really hot AMV about the boys' love game if you want to take a look.
As a continuation of Global Boys' Love Month, I recently interviewed HamletMachine from the webcomic and recently self-published Starfighter (which I just reviewed). Enjoy!
Since I’m currently featuring “GloBL” artists, can you share with us what country you’re from?-Sure! I'm from the United States. Born and raised in NYC.Why HamletMachine?
-Years and years ago, a friend of mine told me about a theater production she had seen of Die Hamletmaschine, by Heiner Müller and I think my brain nearly exploded from the pleasure of hearing those words together. I'm a big fan of Shakespeare and robots, so I kept the handle, as it embodies so much of what I love!Your current project is Starfighter. Are you both the writer and the artist for it?
