Hello and greetings fellow otaku.
I think it is time to get something of my chest that has me a bit annoyed!!!!!!!!!!! I am talking about the cable channel known as Animax. As many of you know or may not know, Animax is a satalite television network that airs anime 24 hours a day in Japan, they also have other affliates in latin america, united kingdom, australia and other countries. They show the latest shows and series from Japan and also well know and popular series. According to wikipedia they state that back in 2004 their was plans to bring Animax to the states but their has been no further progress. I personally feel that this channel should come to the states. We have networks such as anime network and funimation channel but most states do not carry them on their local cable and satelite providers. It would be awesome to have all three of these channels on all cable and satelite providers for all anime fans to get the best selection of anime possible. And that is the end of my opinion. Laters.

Viz media originally released this series as a 12 volume series but for this new release it will be in traditional manga style (right to left) and will be newly translated and remastered from the original manga. Thats all for now, take care and remember their is a ton of anime and manga out there you just got to know where to look. Laters.

Greetings Fellow Otaku,
It is now time to introduce another new segment to anime full circle I would like to call Only In Japan. And for our first ever only in japan segment, I would like to introduce you to Asimo. Now some of you know who this friendly guy is, but for those of you who do not know Asimo is a robot created by Honda. You may have seen the commercials when goes out and gets the newspaper or the youtube video showing him dancing. Asimo was created to help the elderly with general tasks such as getting the paper and other things. In my honest opinion, Asimo is the best thing to come to the states since anime. And that is the first ever edition of only in Japan. Take care everybody and I will catch ya later.
