Crayon Shin Chan is BACK! XD


REJOICE EVERYONE — for we have a story piece to welcome the Bon Odori Festival! The new series of popular comic Crayon Shin-chan (local release is entitled Dik Cerdas) will hit the streets of Japan next month! :D

The Japanese manga series came to an end after the tragic death of its creator, Yoshito Usui last year. However, fans from around the world requested for the return of Crayon Shin-chan in any form from the publisher. Hearing those plea, Usui’s former assistants formed the 40 mg levitra savior team – the Yoshito Usui & UY Studio – and continued on with the series! The new series of Crayon Shin-chan will be published in Futabasha Publishers’ monthly magazine Manga Town on Aug 5th 2010. “In response to the fans’ expectations, we would like to provide a high-quality finished work,” a Futabasha official said :D



Why The Double Standard on Local Published Manga?


See the three mangas above? Any difference? Not really. Indeed they are of 3 different languages, but they are still manga, and all of them are “official”, since the English and Malay version have been given the license by the original Japanese publishing company to be republished in local language. But what irks me is whenever anyone talks about “original” manga, why they never consider the Malay one to be original? (more…)

Yozakura Quartet Anime Remake

Yozakura Quartet mangaka, Suzuhito Yasuda (who also drew the characters for the popular series Durarara!) has said on his twitter that the manga will have another anime adaptation. The adaptation will according to him, be a reset from the first anime adaptation, which was panned worldwide due to it's lack of quality and diverging storyline from the manga.

Ryoochimo Sawa is directing, designing the characters and overseeing the animation production. Tatsunoko Pro and KMMJ Studios are producing, and the studio Kusanagi is handling the backgrounds. Yu Kobayashi is in charge of storyboards. Atsushi Suemitsu, the musician better known as Suemitsu & The Suemith, is performing the ending theme song and composing the background music. Despite the changes in the staff from the earlier television anime series, Yasuda says that the cast will remain unchanged.

It's a good news indeed, and might be due to the fact that the FullMetal Alchemist remake which now follows the manga proven to be better than the first adaptation, altho the fact that it will start at book 9 means we won't see remake of the first 8 volumes.
