Gakuen Heaven Love ham

Bakemonogatari 13 on Oct 28th!!!

News from the official website on 09/10/05: 「つばさキャット 其ノ參」は、公式HPにて10月28日配信予定です!!!

I'm excited. I definitely won't be able to wait for the DVD, so screw the quality of the broadcast! I'm watching it online no matter what!

Also, I finally picked up my DVD, and I absolutely LOVE the packaging, with cover illustration by Watababe Akio-san and a plastic protector that's so unlike the ugly blue boxes that other BluRay DVDs come in! I still don't have a player for it, nor a screen (I'd have to get at least a 42-inch screen to fully appreciate it - you can bet that's not going to happen anytime soon!), but thanks to some people's generosity, it doesn't matter anymore v(^_^)v

Now all I'm wondering is if the commentary tracks will be translated...

p.s. Someone has the strange idea that a leaflet in the DVD announced that Kizumonogatari (the prequel containing Koyomi Vamp) will be animated in 2010. The only anime mentioned by those leaflets is Katanagatari, which is a completely different story. The other leaflets are about a questionaire and other Nishio Ishin novels, including the note that 傾物語 (Kabukimonogatari) and 猫物語 (Nekomonogatari) are due for release next year.

p.p.s. The other piece of news from the website is an apology for the trouble caused due to the, in hindsight, miscalculation in the number of copies produced. They are currently reproducing them and copies will be available once again from next week. Since pre-orders of the limited editions (I'm assuming) could not even be fulfilled, I assume that they're making more of these editions, though I'm not sure if they'll just be fulfilling orders already made. Mah, I suppose we'll find out after next week.
