Only In Japan-Mister Donut’s and Pon-De-Lion!!!!!

Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

Well about two weeks ago, I started reading an interesting manga series known as Fushigi Yugi: The Mysterious Play. The series focuses on a young protagonist named Miaka Yuki, a junior high school student who has an obsession with food!!!! Now in the first volume of the manga, Miaka mentions some popular restaurants such as Denny’s, McDonald’s among others. But one of the most interesting places she mentioned was well know popular donut chain known as Mister Donut’s.

Now for those of you who do not know what the heck I am talking about, Mister Donut’s was a popular donut chain here in the states that first open it’s doors back in 1956. The chain was popular all across the United States until the 1990’s when it was acquired by Dunkin Donuts. Currently there are only a small handful of  Mister Donuts chains in the states. However the popular franchise is still going strong over seas in Japan, The Philippines among others.

Now your probably thinking, how is Mister Donuts still doing business after all these years? Well take a look at this picture and you will see what I mean.

So who is this cute little guy, well this is Pon-De-Lion the Mister Donut’s mascot (A play-on of words of the famous Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon). He and his friends are relatively well known for the franchise in Japan from stuffed animals to billboard signs. You can’t go anywhere in Japan without seeing these cute little characters. Here are a few videos featuring Pon and friends, and trust me they are really funny and cute.

And for those of you who are interested in looking at some of the character collectables that are currently available, you can check out the Japanese version of the Mister Donuts website by clicking on the link at the end of this post. and with that, this will wrap another edition of Only In Japan. So until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.

Breaking News In Anime-Haruhi Season 2 To Be Released On August 17!!!!!

June 14, 2010

Haruhi-suzumiya-haruhi-7261078-800-640

Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

Well before I begin this next post, I just want to clarify some information about a recent post that was uploaded yesterday. Yesterday I mentioned that Bandai Entertainment was re-releasing The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya as part of there Anime Legends collection. Originally I mentioned that this collection was going to include both seasons one and two of the popular anime series. However I was wrong about that assumption, the box set that is going to be released next month is only going to have the original season one episodes and not season two.

But for those who are major Haruhi fans who are wondering when the second season is going to be released, rumor has it that the second season of the popular series will be released on August 17. Now please keep in mind that this is just a rumor and that we cannot officially confirm or deny this information. I am assuming that Bandai will make an official announcement about this later on this week, but I am not going to say that this is an official release date. As always stay with us for the latest developments on this developing story.

And just for the record, all posts that relate to new series and release dates for popular anime series coming to DVD featured on Anime Full Circle have been researched and confirmed by company websites and credible anime news sites such as Anime News Network among other credible news sources. This means that I will only post this information that is considered as accurate information. And with that this will wrap another edition of breaking news in anime. So until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.


Afc News Update-Haruhi Release Date Announced and Dude Gets Caught Taping Geek Squad Van!!!!!

June 13, 2010

Hello and greetings fellow otaku,

Now a while back I mentioned that Bandai Entertainment was going to re-release The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya in a complete collection box set which includes both season one and season two episodes. Well Bandai announced about two months ago that the new box set is set to be released on July 6,2010. Now guys, I would like to apologize for not telling you guys about this a few weeks ago but this was around the time that I was getting ready for final exams. Hopefully, I will try not to forget to tell you guys about these important release dates again.

GeekSquad

And on an un-related note, about a few days ago a guy was pulled over by a policeman for video taping a Geek Squad van in which he planed to make a parody video of him acting like one of the reps responding to a call. Originally the Geek Squad employee who was being secretly video taped was planning to press charges against the guy taping the van, but the officer let him go with a charge of reckless driving in which he was given a ticket.

Now I don’t know how you guys feel about this, but I personally feel that this guy got what he deserved. Thankfully he avoided getting sued, but in all honesty he shouldn’t have been taping while behind a wheel. One it is dangerous to do so and two, he could have gotten killed for doing this. But anyway, check out the original video and the follow-up and form your own judgments. And until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.

So stay tuned and until next time, remember that there is a ton of great anime and manga out there. All you have to do is find it. Ltrs.
