Aldnoah.Zero publicity, key merchandise etc

Just the list of magazine spreads, events, radio show specials, and key merchandise that I know of. For the publicity stuff, I'll note the ones that I haven't been able to obtain - if anyone is willing to share them with me, I'd be incredibly grateful! And if you know of anything I've missed, please let me know!

2014-07-03: Anime Expo Panel with Urobuchi

What’s written here is a summary of what the translator said. However, that wasn’t all that Urobuchi actually said, which was:

“This series will start on July 5th. Officially, I’m credited with having written the “original story.” What happened was that, because production overlapped with Kamen Rider (Gaim), I put together the original story and wrote the script up to episode 3, after which I passed the baton to Takayama-san, who’s the ‘scenario writer’. It’s a project that I was involved in from the very start.”

    I'm sure anyone and everyone has said it already, but I can't help joining in. This week's Naruto chapter, #571, was AWESOME!!…

  • Is this where I stop reading Bleach?

    "You...disappeared without even leaving a memento for me, that part of you is what I hated about you, but.. if you had left a memento…

  • Back briefly...only to, er, confirm a hiatus...

    Temporary, I think. Before, I was too busy packing (I sent 8 boxes!), now I'm too busy traveling. So yeah, a certain drama CD translation…
