    The Daily AwsomeNews 06/02/2011 

    Welcome to my first daily news post, i am going to (try..) post daily news updates on anime (stuff like that)

    Well onto the news!

    It looks like Tokyopop will be premiering their 8 eps videodoc on Japanese fandom culture, on the 24th Feb via Hulu.com (must watch)

    This documentary was first filmed last summer. It follows the owner of Tokyopop and director Stu Levy journey through the USA, while following (Sounds like Twitter “LOL”) 19 anime fanatics on the life of an Otaku.

    Trailer:

    The world adored (well at least I adore him) 71 year old righter  of barefoot gen manga (Manga is about the Hiroshima atomic bombing and after story)  Keiji Nakazwa just revealed yesterday that he has been in hospital for 3 months due to lung cancer (poor man). But somehow he visited the start of Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum Expo and said in a big grin that he somehow got better. (I call it magic)

    Run for your life!!!!!!!!!!

    Well well well voice actor Yuko Miyamura is going to have a second baby soon (congrats to her) It was announced yesterday on her blog and concert that she should be having a baby by the end of July. Her last baby was born 7 years ago (2004)

    It looks like Hetalai – axis powers vol 2 is at the top of the NY Times Manga best sellers. Followed by Black Butler vol 4 and Vampire knight vol 11. You can see the rest below;

    Well if any one of you were wondering what people would put the oreimo Characters in a top 10 would be. You don’t have to wonder anymore because Dengeki Mag has done it for use!

    1. Kirino Kōsaka
    2. Kuroneko
    3. Ayase Aragaki
    4. Manami Tamura
    5. Saori Bajiina
    6. Kanako Kurusu

    (i wonder what you think of this list my felow readers, Please leave a comment below!)

    One of the best anime's of all time (well thats what i think)

    Well it looks like the jap Tv company TV Tokyo has unveiled a website to show the premiere of Sengoku Otamoe – memorio Pardox anime adaption of Heiwa’s pachinko game (I will be definitely checking out this game later). The 2008 game depicts japans’ era of the Warning states, while using 5 female warriors to show it.

      Not digging the America’s Greatest Otaku thing. They’re making it out to be the best thing in the world to be when it’s really a negative term. On this club I’m involved in for local Geeky/Nerdy girls, my title is “Otaku Princess” because if I’m not working, I’m at home. I read manga, play games, sew for my cosplay, watch anime. Things like that. If I do go out, it’s usually to watch Takarazuka at a friend’s house or someplace for a meal. I do go to anime conventions, but I don’t really go out and socialize. It’s a fit for the term ‘Otaku’. Most Americans don’t get that and think of it as a god tier nerd or something and that’s what this thing TokyoPop is making it out to seem and it just irks me so badly. 😐

        Hm, you make a very good point! I never thought of it in that way. But the word Otaku has many meanings (it’s a very complex word)

      ‘Greatest Otaku’ looks like it could end up being…kinda patronising :/

      And as for the OreImo list? IMHO, the top 5 should go like this :3

      1. Kuroneko
      2. Saori Bajiina
      3. Kirino Kōsaka
      4. Manami Tamura
      5. Ayase Aragaki

        Ya, it does look like every one is hateing on the Otaku video. (I will only think of it as a show to see some anime fans do some wacky things! ^_^) If i made a oreimo list, all the characters would be in the number 1 spot!
