Hanamaru Yōchien trailer (as recorded from the Gainax panel)

Here’s the trailer I said I’d put up. This was the “special treat” we were given at the Gainax panel. It’s low quality and people are talking, but till the better version is out, please make do.

AX 2009 Day 3 Report (Small Victory for Hentai Gamers)

Ok, things I did today: Went to the Nightow/Nishimura panel and saw the Trigun Movie trailer (also learned Nightow got the inspiration to create Trigun from the fusion of Star Wars and John Woo films). After wards I went to get my BlazBlue preorder artbook signed by Ishiwatari and Mori.

After that I went to the Future of Bishoujo Gaming panel and was dumbfounded at the hundreds of hentais in line to get into the panel (must admit I was a little mad because I assumed the majority had no idea what the panel was for, but while there were a few the majority were hard-core hentais!). We were greeted with the great news that mangagamer.com is going to release the first 2 chapters of the Higurashi games, some Navel Games (first Shuffle!), and from how the conversation went I assume we can expect more in the future (crossing fingers for Koi+Hime); we also got informed that Da Capo 2 will be release in the future! Bless you people who went out of your way on the net and bought a game from mangagamers! In these troubled times for hentai, this was a small victory for us North American gamers! So let’s continue to support mangagamers so they can start selling us some limited edition packages! On that note, apparently there’re some buy 1 get one free coupons for mangagamers if you buy at their booth. If I get any extra codes I’ll post them. I’ll put the details of today as well as the previous days in a wrap-up post.

AX 2009 Day 2 Report

Hey, ok I took a few pictures today! Went to the Daisuke Ishiwatari and Toshimichi Mori panel, masterminds behind Guilty Gear and BlazBlue respectively; it was mostly Q&A the highlight of the panel being when someone asked Ishiwatari to shout out a Sol Bad Guy line since he’s the voice. I managed to record the whole thing and will have it up soon. There was an autograph session, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to make it in time before they stopped; I’ll just try again tomorrow. Other than that there wasn’t much I did except go to the Morning Musume concert. It was amazing; they really went all out for their concert and I was surprised to see a packed house since I made the wrong assumption that not many people would know of them, but both their panel and concerts were full houses. Unfortunately we weren’t allow to bring in any recording equipment, so I couldn’t take any pictures. Believe me though, it was something, and the winners of the music video competition had good videos. I think you can check them out on the Morning Musume MySpace page. The drawn video in particular is insane. I’ll post up the pictures in one lump sum after AX.

First Day of AX 2009 Report

Ok, first day of AX! For starters, I’m sorry but I forgot to take my camera with me. Fortunately, I borrowed a friends and managed to get a few nice pics and videos which will be up later. Of note, I went to the Gainax panel and got to see a trailer for Hanamaru Yōchien and if all goes well I’ll have a youtube of it up over the weekend. Other news is Circus is here!! In these troubled times for ero-games, it was a great surprise to see mangagamer at AX. Furthermore!! They brought the artists of Da Capo and Edelweiss with them! They’re doing some sketches for $20, and they have some signed Da Capo II posters of Otome for $5. Quite a deal right?I’ll post up a the pictures later, and those going to AX I’ll hope you’ll come to the Future of Bishoujo Gaming panel where they’ll hopefully address the unfortunate situation of ero-games due to some feminist protest and hopefully have a plan to save the indrustry from the disturbing trend of fetish bands.

Gurren Lagann Director/Character Designer Coming to AX 2009!!!

 

Hiroyuki Imaishi & Atsushi Nishigori Coming to AX!!!

Hiroyuki Imaishi & Atsushi Nishigori Coming to AX!!!

 

 

Dear Merciful God!!!! Gurren Lagann’s Director Hiroyuki Imaishi, and character designer Atsushi Nishigori have been announced at guests at AX! I’m so happy I bought that Gurren Lagann groundwork book last year now! I’ll be even more happy if I can get them to sign it! As cheesy as it sounds, it makes me wanna gather tons of people and have us cosplay as the Gurren Dan at the panel; though it’s only a feeling and I feel like my body type isn’t a good fit for any character, plus I suck at sewing. In any case, I expect to see tons of fans at the panel and it’ll probably be a miracle to get into the panel let alone the autograph session. I guess it’s up good ol’ fashioned patience and line-waiting for me…………….or the ridiculously fancy method of standby-sniper-sniping-people-with-tranquilizer move……… though I’m pretty sure one of those methods is illegal. Plus, you know as a fellow fan i would want to purposely deprive them of the chance to meet these guys. If anyone else is going to AX, speak up; maybe we could meet in line to make the wait a little more bearable. This great news reminds me that my Gurren Lagann Kirameki Yoko Box – Pieces of Sweet Stars DVD is coming soon, and I kinda hope some of some Gurren Lagaan seiyūs will come to AX too; particularly Marina Inoue
