Two months and 13 days~
Since the last newsletter, I’ve put up some normal posts. I came back from going to Japan (before they opened up!), one big con, and spent quality time with family. How have you been?
Omonomono Newsletter, 2022-11-06
Deja vu is not a thing but I have a bunch of events planned from now until next May. It’s nuts and the con season won’t start until April/May next year. As some would say, anime con guests are going to be in “revenge” mode in 2023. Gonna be holding to my rear and grimacing all next year.
Two months is enough to jump cross over one whole Shiny Colors seiyuu drama lol.
These Past Months
Ayaka Suwa Livertine Age collab…yeah. Believe it or not this is my first LTA order?
Aforementioned “tadano_debu33” debacle aside with Anna Yamaki, Takahiro Sakurai also seemed to be involved in an affair by hiding his marital status for 10+ years. Not a huge problem normally except one party is “insider” and ended up quitting her job, which impacted a bunch of other seiyuu content.
Tomori Kusunori retried from her role in Love Live because of genetic disease causing her unable to do the dancing involved for the performances. Some examples here.
Sena Hoshiki to go on hiatus to treat her leukemia. Get well soon!!
Risa Tsumugi marries. Grats!
Ayachi gives birth, congrats Taketatsu and Yuuki Kaji!
Yurucamp TV season 3 announced.
Random IDOLM@STER news, Kogane Ramen?
4.5M is a lot. For a point of comparison, Goodbye, Don Glees got $86k.
On that note, ATRI My Dear Moments is getting an anime adaptation.
Mecha-Ude gets TV anime? LOL. I backed this.
LycoReco bangers with high bluray sales.
My Dress Up Darling to promote Saitama Dolls. Hina dolls.
Gravure corner. Shiichan’s calendar wow.
This is called “Chinchinkurabe” right?
Shinepost/TINGS to hold live concert at Nakano Broadway in March 2023. It’s exactly what the anime is about right?
Imagine waking up to this news, which is one of the more celebrated music composers in the anisong scene today is arrested because he allegedly assaulted a minor? Hidekazu Tanaka is arrested.
This season of anime has been pretty solid too. I didn’t expect Bocchi to hit, and it didn’t, but it’s still a nice show that reminded me things from the way back. Gundam Utena or G Witch is a blessing. The two trashy harem-y shows are still fun? The marriage show is a bit wild, but Renai Flops is spot on I guess. I should still check out some of the interesting things I heard, like the Bibliophile Princess show. It’s hard to get mad at a season with more Pop Team Epic and Golden Kamuy fundamentally IMO. Stuff like Chainsaw Man is just bonus.
Arknight anime is miles better than GFL anime. DIY is good. Yama no Susume is godly.
I’ve also been trying to catch up on some slightly older stuff. Like trying to finish the last season of Kaguya-sama, and binge Abyss and Summer Time Rendering. I’ll get to it when I get to it I suppose.
Akiba Maid War is the delightful surprise of the season. The anime about the sword or the farmer keeps things down to earth. There’s that alchemist anime. Or more fanservice from Peter Grill? I’m not sure I want to continue. I want to watch more Mob, but I never finished season 2, how do I keep going…
Otherwise, between planning to go to Japan and dealing with work and family, I barely have time for anything. I guess this is why this newsletter is so slow at being written.
I think I’m going to deprecate this section because last time I wrote up to 9/25 and I didn’t update until 11/5, LOL. I might just do some simple shoutouts to rep things I want to rep instead. So for this week, people in Japan can experience Mocho. Bunch of people are also running at the Race Course that is Umamusume 4th. I tried watching it on Abema and it’s really neat with the multiple angles going on. The venue is a huge place so it helps. Plus, you can stream it to TV easier.
Later this month is the aforementioned IDOLM@STER Orchestra show which will be streamed. The week after that is the next Cinderella Girls show which probably will also get a stream? Again best of luck to Riamu’s seiyuu for a complete recovery.
That week is also Anime NYC. At least you can probably watch the Fate/Go and Kaugyasama stages on Youtube? Here’s the one from AX. “Mogra” was at Second Sky (we know Porter loves Mogra anyways) but it’s now EC (and Wildpa got his visa now?). There is also a special Slime event.
The week after, US Thanksgiving week, is AFA Singapore.
For the month of December, I will probably take it easy.
Damn I missed Machiasobi.
And as mentioned elsewhere, my eyes are on this…and beyond.
Again, quite a bunch. But you can start with this short tweet.
More Mocho talking. This time about art.
I’ve been watching videos from this channel for a while now but it only occurred to me to look at their old stuff. But nice youtube summaries for a lot of popular seiyuu here. The focus is a bit more modern and seiota-y than most, which is perfect. By the way, this is my interest? And this?
Watch the prologue episode of G Witch on youtube. I think this was brilliant. Good for you Gundam people.
The full story to the death of the mangaka of Yu-Gi-Oh, Kazuki Takahashi. More details.
Since the last newsletter, a big thing has taken off a bit and it’s called Stable Diffusion. Basically it can generate some images from scratch via text or other images. Recent breakthroughs were good enough that companies like Novel AI can really crunch out pictures of popular Pixiv top 1000s lol. Linked is a high level but the drama behind it is also pretty amusing, with 4chan leaking their code and what have you. Maybe it’s a blog post for later.
And that’s it for this issue! Let me just end with: Happy Birthday Momoko Suou! And I still don’t like Daylight Savings!
