Shugo Chara!… Doki? January 5, 2009



A quick FYI I guess.  My apologies for not posting this too soon.

I know we all are growing impatient for the most awaited Shugo Chara!! Doki episode which was supposed to be aired last Saturday, if the regular schedule should be followed.

I could see most people had been scouring around the net and found none of the juicy arc!

Worry not, we all could expect it to air this week since the long holiday observance in Japan particularly has ended!

Remember Shugo Chara!! Doki (Episode 65) is goin’ to be aired 9:30 am, Japan time, Saturday!

Don’t miss the Ikuto x Amu love!! ;D

This isn’t so new a news but I’d like to reiterate it for the sake of those who were following closely the Shugo Chara! manga.

Chapter 37 should have been scheduled with Nakayoshi within the last week of December last year, the 29th.

However, Peach-Pit senseis had incurred some unexpected illness and were hospitalized, leaving no choice but to cancel the publishing of not only Shugo Chara! but their other works as well.

[ AnimeNewsNetwork ] have had a news clip on this and the manga duo had posted the same announcement on their [ official site ] earlier.

There was no definite schedule for the next release yet and I hope they could all get back in shape soon that we could have the Shugo Chara! goodness on the next Nakayoshi issue!

I too have been quiet for a while since most of my favorite manga releases went on hiatus during the holidays! It’s awful!  T~T

This is great news!!

I accidentally landed on the Oricon.jp’s site while I was randomly checking on my bookmarks!  I just can’t keep quiet about it since two of my favorite mangas were in there among the Top 50 list!

Ouran High School Host Club


Ouran High School Host Club’s volumes 12 and 13 by Hatori Bisco ranked 36th and 37th respectively garnering more than half a million sales within the January 7 to November 24, 2008 timeframe!

And guess what, CLAMP’s xxxHOLiC the 13th followed closely at #43!  I was so happy I  was among those who bought the volume!

See the rest here: [Oricon Top 50 Best Sellers]

Ouran’s getting juicier at the rate it is going now and the HOLiC is getting more intense!  I hope to see them on that list too this year!

Good job and keep going Hatori and CLAMP senseis! XD


Mangettes: Gate 7 by CLAMP December 15, 2008

In collaboration with publisher Dark Horse, the famous manga quartet, CLAMP has scheduled to officially set on  public the Mangettes: Gate 7 on August 15, 2009.

The 80-page paperback goodness is now available on a pre-order basis at Amazon.ca.  Check it out [ here ].

While little is known about this anticipated product, here’s a brief summary from  the same site:

– – –

Between our conscious, waking world and the subconscious state of slumber, there is a thinly veiled plane of lucid dreaming.

While the conscious state belongs to individuals, the hidden plane of dreams is one shared by all human minds, past, present, and future. Yet only a few have ever possessed the power to enter this secret realm at will – where a war is being waged to control the waking world. For our earthly wishes and desires are not our own, but under the manipulation of these unseen masters of dreams.

The heroine of Gate 7 is Hana, a high-school girl hailing from Kyoto, the daughter of a temple caretaker. Her peaceful ways give her the self-control to act in the hidden realm. But Hana can only reach it through the strange beast that acts as her totem in the world of dreams – and her companion on a journey to confront the puppeteers of our reality!

– – –

Another craft to look forward to from CLAMP! Looks promising is it?

We are expecting an xxxHOLiC and Tsubasa OAD soon and we’ve also got to see this more later!  =)

Shugo Chara! 2009 Calendar December 3, 2008

Shugo Chara 2009 Calendar

Shugo Chara! 2009 Calendar

No way! Way!!

It’s Shugo Chara’s 2009 Calendar scans by Pirat3Bliss.  I hope she doesn’t mind me stealing one of the images! XD

As usual, I am not leaving this out till I have been able to share this with everyone!  Cute things as such should never be left unnoticed!

A seven-leaved calendar splashed with exciting and colorful images is one perfect gift for the Season.

Couldn’t say if I’m getting one though but it’ll be worth it if you’re an Amu x Ikuto fan! Of course, Tadase x Amu too.

Nagi, Kairi and even Utau were in there in addition to the cute little charas the Guardians and the cool and spicy Amu have!

The manga is doing great, the anime seem to get more exciting every time  and this one’s a treat for all Shugo Chara! otakus!

To buy or not to buy? That is the question.

Domo Pirat3Bliss!^o^


I might be buying it, my sister said so! XD

Rozen Maiden Dolls @ the AFA 2008. Credits to Chan-chan (Chan-Chan's Anime Blog)

I just couldn’t resist not to share this adorable Rozen Maiden Dolls featured in the AFA 2008 on the 22nd.  A friend Chan-chan relives her experience (to the envy of me XD) and put up photos she took from the event.

How I wish I was there too but worry not, allow Chan-chan to take us there.  Click on the pic to Chan-chan’s post!

Drop her a thank you if you could.  She has been very generous to let me use her pic and let it be shared to everyone else!

Hugs and Thank Yous Chan-chan!  You rock!! *–*


Vampire Knight: Noir No Wana October 21, 2008

Grab it here!

Grab it here!

We were intrigued the last time a Vampire Knight light novel was published, remember the ‘Vampire Knight: Ice Blue No Tsumi” (Vanpaia Naito: Aisu Burū no Tsumi) or the (Sin of Ice Blue) featuring Fuuka’s obsession with Kaname but it turned out she ended up with Aidou instead?!

Anyways, story writer Ayuna Fujisaki along with Matsuri Hino’s craft has published on October 3 another installment entitled “Vampire Knight: Noir No Wana” (Vanpaia Naito: Nowāru no Wana) or (The Noir Trap).

Consisting of 3 mini chapters, the novel features the story of Zero and his decision of attending senior high school.  It also has attributed a chapter to Shindo, the girl who offered Zero chocolates during Valentines day and the last story was dedicated to the Class representative of Zero and Yuuki’s class. See more details here.

It has been out in the market and since this one’s so new, of course no scanlations are available yet.  Sorry ’bout that.

I wonder if Kaname-sama’s got a big role there? Just maybe but I’m grabbing this one when already published in English, for now let’s polish our handful of Japanese! XD

Stay tuned for more updates on this!
