Tales of the Abyss gets Anime


Rumor has it that a Tales of the Abyss anime is in the works! It is to be produced by Sunrise with Kodama Kenji (Kekkaishi) as director. No word on air date. And if the original game's seiyuu make a return the cast'll look something like this;

Luke fon Fabre: Chihiro Suzuki
Tear Grants: Yukana
Jade Curtiss:Takehito Koyasu
Anise Tatlin: Halko (Haruko) Momoi
Guy Cecil: Yasunori Matsumoto
Natalia Luzu Kimlasca Lanvaldear: Michiko Neya
Van Grants: Jouji Nakata
Asch the Bloody: Chihiro Suzuki

Needless to say, I hope they all reprise their roles. :)

Now those were all the basics. If you haven't played the game, don't read my little rant here. You WILL be spoiled.

Now for those for us who've actually played the game, there's one pressing matter that I hope the anime resolves. Who came back the end? Luke? Asch? Some strange hybrid of the two? All sign point to either Luke or the hybrid, but I've been dying for official confirmation.

Second, I want more background on Tear! In the game we only got vague hints. I want her past to be fully fleshed out. At least I want to see her relationship with Van to be explain fully. In the game we got the idea that they were very close, but I felt like they should have developed it much more. Since their relationship is a central point in the plot.

Other than that I hope the studio puts their own twist on this awesome story.(and puts in plenty of LukexTear raburabu) And that they make it a TV series like Eternia rather than an OVA like Symphonia. Needless to say you can expect full coverage here when this airs! XD

HOLY SHI-!@#!)@()@#


American (?) manga that doesn't burn my eyes! It's a miracle!

Yen Press will be putting out a manga adaptation of the Maxium Ride novels, which'll run in their new magazine in addition to the standard paperback release. The cover art looks absolutely gorgeous. I lost faith in novel-manga adaptations back when Tokyopop put out that awful sequel to Avalon High, but this is Yen Press not Tpoo. I'm eager to see how this goes ( it could either be the best thing since sliced bread, or absolute crap) so I'll be keeping an eye on this baby.

For those interested, a full summary can be found on Yen Press's website. (http://yenpress.us)


Nanatsuiro Drops DS Port


Picture jacked from Amiami

Here's a bit of out dated news for you. MediaWorks put out a Nanatsuiro Drops port with tons of mini games for the DS on the 13th. Comes in two flavors, normal and limited edition.

And by god, the limited edition is filled with goodies. It comes with a calender, stickers, a poster, an alternate cover, a Sumomo nendoroid, a post card, and a star drop pin.

Although the MSRP is 9,240 ($87 give or take) most places have it for twenty bucks less.Not a bad deal if I do say so myself. I've been wanting to get into this series for a while now, this may be the perfect time to do so.

Where to buy;


or if you read Japanese



Many Thanks

On an unrelated note, I shall the live-action DN movie last night. Hope to have a review up by the end of the weekend.

Hibari Kyouya body pillow


This is really quite tempting for me. I've never read/watch REBORN! But this Kyouya has the fangirl in me screaming. But at a $90 price tag, something tells me this mobster won't gracing my bed anytime soon.
