1] As anime blogger ogiue maniax has recentley posted on his blog The latest issue of Monthly Afternoon has announced plans to air a brand new series of Kios Shimoku’s Genshiken. currenllty theres no word as to wether it’ll continue from where the previous animate adpatation left or wether it’ll just go straight to Genshiken 2 and introduce the new cast.
2] For those of you still undecided or not knowing one of the longest running UK anime convention’s AYACON will be hosting what will be it last ever anime convention EVER on the 16th – 18th August 2013 at the Warwick Arts Centre, University of Warwick, near Coventry.

My own thoughts? – Ayacon was my first ever anime convention, WAAAYYY back in the mists of time […okey more like 2001, but whos counting] and i for one willl definitly be going down to see this
3] American manga/ book publisher Vertical inc. have set up their now annual Marketing and Licensing Survey, allowing fans the chance to not only air their thoughts about Vertical but to also put forward their wishlists of series that they’d like to get licenced and released in the west.
HOWEVER there are some restrictions, namely no titles from Shogakukan, Shueisha or Akita Shoten, nothing published before 2000 and nothing that has a volume count above 14.
the closing date for amissions is 8th Febuary – so hurry on down and
fill in the survey today.
