Hello and greetings once again fellow Otaku,
I have two big pieces of anime news to share with you guys.
Viz Media is in the process of publishing a brand new book about the legendary animation director Hayao Miyazaki. The book entitled “STARTING POINT 1979-1996” will be a book containing essays, memoirs manga and interviews from Mr. Miyazaki. The book will reflect on mister Miyazaki’s first twenty years of work. The book is set to be released on August 4.
Also. a new Manga for the series Genshiken is slated to be released on December 8 of this year. The new manga will be entitled “Genshiken: Return Of The Otaku”. Their has been no further information about what the manga will be about or whether or not it will pick up at the end of the original manga. The book is now available for preorder at amazon.com. You can pre-order your copy by clicking on the link below. That’s all for now, but instead of doing my regular outro, I am going to do something different. So here it goes.
“And that’s the way it is: Saturday, June 18, 2009”
As you can probably tell, that was the way Walter Cronkite use to sign off when he was the anchor of The CBS Evening News from April 16, 1962 till February 14,1980. As many of you may have heard, Mr. Cronkite passed away yesterday at the age of 92. We send our thoughts and prayers to his friends and family. We will defiantly miss you!!!!!!!!!!!! God Bless.
