Yiiii~!!! Long Random Digest post is long~
1:. Bakuman Gets Anime Adaptation for Fall 2010
It’s no surprise that it’s getting an anime adaptation tbh, it seriously has anime written all over it~ lol. Now I only have to catch on on the manga… orz. I kinda left it on hold months ago ^^;;
2:. Spring Noitamina Show
This Winter, Nodame Cantabile Finale will take on the Noitamina block. Following that up, we have Yojou-han Shinwa Taikei to get animated this April and it’ll be joining the ranks of its previous show, Eden of the East, Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, Trapeze, and many anime classics being on the Noitamina slot, which are primarily focused on the josei age group and Noitamina shows had been constantly receiving great reception. Add to that is this anime would be a Madhouse production and will be directed by Maasaki Yuasa (Kaiba). Website is here and you can see character designs by Yusuke Nakamura, who does the cover CDs for Asian Kung-fu Generation.
3:. Hetalia New Nations
Hetalia news (well, this is quite old already…) Hidekaz-sensei reveals two brand new nations added to the Hetalia family!!! ^^. We have (beside Japan from left) Netherlands and Cameroon respectively. Gawd~ Cameroon is hawt. Netherlands too~ He looks like Denmark’s long lost twin~ lol
4:. Hetalia Gets Third Season!
Hetalia Axis Powers lives on with a third season greenlit for March 2010! Oh hawd, it’s never gonna die XDD~ Since we know how the DVDs are selling like a lot, not to mention that the character singles are doing well on the Oricons too, so it’s no surprise Hetalia still continues because of its success. Yay~! But it kinda sucks that it still runs on webcast (Animate.tv) *insert damn you Korea, etc.* but heck, at least there’s more episodes of Hetalia anyway so I won’t complain. Yaaay~!!!!! ^^
Anyway, Hetalia news aside, there’s something on with Italy’s seiyuu Daisuke Namikawa and that leads us to the next news…
5:. Daisuke Namikawa takes on Directing!
Voice actor Daisuke Namikawa is making his directorial debut with Wonderful World, a live-action film that will open in Japan in early summer next year. Mamoru Miyano stars with fellow voice actors Tomokazu Sugita, Tomokazu Seki, Rikiya Koyama, Yuka Hirata, Showtaro Morikubo, Yuko Kaida, and Namikawa himself. Fashion model and actress Ayumi Uehara plays the main female role alongside Miyano.
The film’s story poses the possibility that all of humanity, without exception, live in two worlds of existence: the real world and a second world known as “Hemu.” Humans live their lives in Hemu when they sleep in the real world. Hidden in each person is another life of which he or she has no recollection of, except for nightmares which are soon forgotten upon waking up. However, there a few rare individuals who are aware of the existence of Hemu and the curious consequences it has on the real world. [ANN]
Looking forward to it ^^. Wishing Nmkw the best of luck, and for seiyuus in general breaking out of the box ^^. The premise looks quite interesting too. And whoa @ the huge cast.. made of seiyuus as well! And Miyano Mamoru <3
6:. The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya!
Newtype reveals a new scan of what would be the official look of the SOS Dan in the upcoming Disappearance of Suzumiya Haruhi film. OMG @ the long-haired Haruhi finally coming real *AAA* So awesome~~~ They look totally… different. Itsuki looks so badass~ Kyon seems to look very srs bsns. Yuki looks cute, while Mikuru looks worried (well, that’s nothing new). Looking forward to the movie this February ^^.
7:. Kaichou wa Maid-sama Anime Look
The official website revealed how would the anime counterparts of Misaki and Usui on the upcoming Spring 2010 anime adaptation of shoujo manga Kaichou wa Maid-sama! JC Staff is the one that will be behind it and now we’re getting a glimpse. Uhmm… it’s horrible tbh. but it’s pretty much expected since shoujo manga character designs is quite hard to be adapted into anime. Blergh, still looks horrendous. Too much ugliness omg.
I really want to put up a quick update of anime I’m watching so you’ll have a clue on what will happen on the next AniStats post~
- Kimi ni Todoke is totally entertaining to bits! Kurumi is love. You know it’s expected to have love triangle third wheels to be annoying but she’s on the league of her own being totally cute, and as sad as it would be, she has FAIL written all over her xP.
- Nyankoi is great. Now that it’s clear how bigtits (Kanako) will only end up as a mere “friend”, they can now hand over a wonderful Junpei x Kaede ending and I’m gonna be very happy ^___^
- Kobato… zzzzzZZZ.
- Letter Bee was quite awesome on episode 10. It finally feels like something is starting. And ALL HAIL THIS EPISODE for no more Lag crying. Thank gawd… dear!
- Aoi Bungaku‘s 4th arc is INCREDIBLE!!! Oh my gawd it’s wearing me out tbh~ It sucks thatthe show will be taking a break, but I guess it’ll be worth it because I did some research on what would be the remaining arcs about and it seems like they would be the most mind-fucking, disturbing arcs ever and they’re saving it for last~
- DTB2 HEI FINALLY SHAVES KYAAAAAAAAAAAA~!!!!! <333
- Umineko still makes no fucking sense BUT I am enjoying it.
- Hetalia gets a little bit more interesting (and I’m loving the weird airtimes tbh xD)
- Sora No Otoshimono makes some K-ON attempts~ xD
- Sasameki Koto needs moar trap, but enjoying it nonetheless. It definitely proves that it’s incomparable to Aoi Hana and it shows differences.
- Tatakau Shisho starts off a new arc. Seems promising~ Hope Mokkania lasts for more episodes since I really like his character. I lol’d how the guy who has Kitty Pride powers died like, when he finally gets screentime. lol.
- WHITE ALBUM is probably the biggest surprise because the drama for this show was just incredible lately. GAWD THIS SECOND SEASON WAS JUST WOW. I hope they won’t screw up the remaining last episodes.
I need to catch up on Trapeze and the others not mentioned in here before the month ends OTZ. About the shows currently on hold, I’m now placing Hanasakeru Seishounen and Reborn! on hiatus now and I might just watch them on DVD/Blu-ray.
Awwww~ The first season just ended T___T. But the finale was totally amazing. Now it feels like a week won’t be complete anymore without me watching GLEE. I just love this hsow. The first half was kinda meh, but everything else on the second half picked it all back up and it had been consistently awesome~
Lol I’m enjoying how Russell plays the game xDD; He’s undeniably the biggest snake of all, really threathening. I’m rooting for Natalie though~ I also like Brett but gawd damn he’s so boring. He barely had any screentime until this week’s episode, and now I feel like he’ll be on trouble next week =__=. I don’t like Shambo at all though.. lol. Old hag needs to gtfo <3
Rolling Stone’s 100 Best Songs of The Decade
WTF. This list should go and get burned. I really don’t like how more than 15% of the songs in here are ghetto hipster piece of music that never really became so popular outside of New York tbh =\ Though I’ll admit that maybe 10 songs deserves their own spot. I like some, but I think others deserve some higher spots and some just… don’t deserve to be there at all ugh. I hate the number one song argh! Sure it was quite a successful song but heck I personally find it annoying >.>
Nana Mizuki’s PHANTOM MINDS Cover Art
WOAHH THAT HUUUUEG FONT FOR PHANTOM MINDS O___O. Anyway, everyone should go and pre-order it now!! Here’s the tracklist:
・PHANTOM MINDS Show ▼

劇場版「魔法少女リリカルなのは The MOVIE 1st」テーマソング
・Don’t be long
劇場版「魔法少女リリカルなのは The MOVIE 1st」挿入歌
PHANTOM MINDS would be Nana-sama’s 21st single and the theme for new Magical Lyrical Nanoha movie. Crossing fingers that it’ll be her first #1 single, since she was so successful on ULTIMATE DIAMOND. Lots of stuff to watch out for her next year!~ Her 22nd will be titled “Silent Bible” and next that is Rina Ogata’s (White Album) 2nd character song, “Powder Snow”.
[K-POP] Seoul Song – Girls Generation x Super Junior
Seriously, I hate how SME removed the MV on youtube. How would they promote tourism when they’re not sharing the video worldwide?!?!?! Dimwits >_> Anyway, ahhh~ Korea <3 how I miss it so much, it’s been three years I last visited there. The food (believe it or not, silkworms are unexpectedly yummy), the shopping, and the super colorful culture. This song make me want to visit Seoul again probably this Christmas-New Year break, if not, this Summer as my parents told me, as long as I get good grades and avoid Summer School ^^.
It’s the Holiday Season and all Holiday-exclusive yummy goodies are up back again~ ^^.

Sebastian Nendo GET~!
Yeeeee~!! I’m really getting into merchandise more and more~ I already placed a pre-order on the Bakemonogatari Puchi Nendoroid Set and I’m wishing April would just come fast~ lol. But now recently I bought the Kuroshitsuji’s Sebastian Nendo first while I’m on the wait, I’m already having another Nendo first ^^. It was really cute and I find it very affordable and you would too. I got my camera, a little bit of using the box insides as the background xD, then took a photoshoot with my chibi Sebby (and his little black cat~):
