So I was browsing ANN's list of Spring 2012 anime premieres and um.

Lupin III - The Woman Called Fujiko Mine

UM.

Director: Sayo Yamamoto (Michiko to Hatchin)
Animation Director / Character Designer: Takeshi Koike (Redline)
Series Composition: Mari Okada (AnoHana, Simoun)


... IJUSTCAME

And the woman voicing Fujiko also did the voice of Celty from Durarara. GHH.

Also in the service of the MG Project, I took a look at the Magical Girl shows coming out this season, and dear god is it a depressing sight. Jewelpet season 4 and Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream season 2. That's it. BARF.

FFFFF

Bad news: The federal government shuts down Megaupload. My opinion on this is mixed. On the one hand, I understand why they did it — MU enabled people to pirate anything and everything. On the other hand, I'm pissed because like a lot of people, I used MU to access things that I can't legally access, like out-of-print unlicensed anime. On the other other hand, I'm amused at the futility of the action because MU is only one of many many sites like it. This is like when the Japanese publishers nuked OneManga and MangaHelpers — a dozen new scanlation-sharing websites immediately popped up to replace them. Something like this is not going to stop people from pirating.

Good news: I found out that not only is the Sailor Moon manga getting rereleased in English with a better translation, but the Princess Knight manga, the grandmama of shojo manga written by Osamu Tezuka himself, is getting released for the first time in English! And both volumes are, as we speak, wending their way towards my mailbox. Yaaaay!

More new anime sampling!

Bodacious Space Pirates: Judging by the title, I strongly suspected this was going to be a revolting pantyriffic jigglefest fanservice show, sort of like Ikki Tousen IN SPACE. To my utter delight, I turned out to be wrong.

This show has a minimal amount of fanservice. And it's about FEMALE SPACE PIRATES.

FEMALE
SPACE
PIRATES

In the first episode, we're introduced to a likeable teenage female lead who has thus far avoided falling into any annoying anime stereotypes. She's a talented spaceship pilot who discovers to her shock that both her parents were space pirates and she's eligible to inherit her long-lost dad's ship now that he's died. This episode also gives us a) a pair of pirates who are a cool chick with interestingly-colored hair and lipstick and a hot bishie dude whose personality is refreshingly down-to-earth so far, b) an ice-queen transfer student who whips out a gun in the final moments of the episode and who, when she's first introduced, prompts the heroine to blush slightly and think "She's cute!" and my LesYay sensors are going off like WEE-OO-WEE-OO-WEE-OO, c) a very detailed futuristic world with tons of cool technology and shit, d) a scene in which the heroine, feeling skeptical after finding out about the whole "parents = pirates" thing, looks her dad up on the future-internet like a sensible person would and idk I just love it when fictional characters do amusingly realistic shit like that, and e) DID I MENTION THAT IT IS ABOUT FEMALE SPACE PIRATES BUT NOT IN A GROSS FANSERVICEY WAY AND THERE'S SPACESHIPS AND CHICKS WITH GUNS AND LESYAY AND SCIFI AND CAN YOU TELL THAT I AM REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS YOU GUYS!?!?

I also have to give the episode props for using about 10 different anime clichés (maid café, stoic chick with glasses, new transfer student, new teacher turns out to be hot guy, new teacher turns out to be someone you know already, kid finds out parents had glamorous exciting life, and probs some other ones I'm forgetting) in such a way that it didn't annoy me. Like, I felt like I should be rolling my eyes, but I wasn't.

Poyopoyo Kansatsu Nikki: This is a 3-minute Slice of Life show about a spherical cat.



I repeat, IT'S ABOUT A SPHERICAL CAT.



I AM GOING TO WATCH THE SHIT OUT OF THIS SHOW.
