Small updates here and there
Its been a month, and I haven’t been updating. Which shouldn’t come as a surprise really, as I’ve mentioned that the site is already in archive mode. Rest assured however, I will update when there is something worth mentioning.
For those of you interested (I’m touched :P), the past month has been a rather busy one. Between work, playing the overrated crap that is Resident Evil 5, a week’s vacation and abusing my drawing tablet and deviantart account, I didn’t have much time to do my usual web browsing for BS6 news and material. I’ve also been falling back on answering comments/emails, but I’ll get down to that soon. Sincerest apologies.
In other news, I did silently update the fan art section with some Splashwoman art. I can’t help it, she’s becoming one of my favorite game characters. Also, contrary to what I mentioned before, its very likely that I will be attending Comiket 76 in August. Life is unpredictable as always, and I’m hoping to see more BS6 and MM works 🙂
Range Murata Anime Works 1998 – 2006
For those of you who were following my Comiket 75 posts, you may remember me talking about an advertisement flyer [Link] distributed by the staff at Range Murata’s booth. The flyer contained details about a new Artbook being released in April 2009, containing illustrations on all of Mr. Murata’s anime works from 1998 till 2006, including, obviously, Blue Submarine No. 6.
Official information on this item finally showed up yesterday on Amazon.co.jp (been tracking this since late March). The book would be on sale in late May at 3675¥, and the site is accepting pre-orders. Overseas shipping is available at Amazon.jp by the way. I’m pretty sure this book will be available for sale at other online stores as well.
The release date is about a month away. No coverpage image, and no details on whether the BS6 illustrations would be new or the same ones in his AZURE book [Link], but for US$40, its probably worth buying. As for me, I’m definitely pre-ordering a copy for myself :). I’ll also do the standard writeup on the item once I get my hands on it.
