Sunday News Bites: January 20th

Hello and welcome to another edition of Sunday News Bites! This week we are joined in the newsroom by Doujin Work’s Osana Najimi, here to give her unique insights into this week’s news.

The end of a manga era
After seven volumes of the main story and two further collected volumes of side stories, the Emma manga is finally coming to an end. Also concluding in the near future is the Karin manga, better known as Chibi Vampire to Tokyopop readers.
Najimi says: How much money did those mangaka make? I wonder if I should read them to get some tips for my next doujin.

Sunday News Bites: September 23rd

Hello and welcome to another edition of Sunday News Bites! This week we are joined by Light Yagami, here to judge the week’s news with the power of the Death Note.

HaruToki 3 announced
Can’t get enough of bishounen-filled reverse harem shows? Then you’ll be delighted to learn that the latest Harukanaru Toki no Naka De anime adaptation has been announced- a one hour special based on the third game. The special is set to be released in December, and will no doubt be as dull and lacking in any real plot as the other Haruka anime adaptations and their sister series Angelique and La Corda d’Oro.
Light says: These bishounen are unworthy, and shall have their names written in my Death Note. Continue reading “Sunday News Bites: September 23rd”

Harukanaru Toki no Naka De parody episode 26 [end]

A thunderstorm of evil covers Kyou, whilst hideous monsters menace generic townspeople. Tomomasa stays at the manor does nothing.

Tomomasa: To be honest, I couldn’t care less about the fate of Kyou and its generics. As long as I have access to HARD GAY named characters, that is all I need.

Meanwhile, Sefuru is upset at having lost so easily.

Sefuru: My battle was over in less than a minute- I don’t even qualify as a mid-boss. Continue reading “Harukanaru Toki no Naka De parody episode 26 [end]”

Takamichi staggers out of bed, only to meet up with Tomomasa.

(Takamichi: HARD GAY with Tomomasa is so taxing- I can barely stand.)

Tomomasa: Where do you think you’re going, Takamichi? I told you to wait for me in bed.

Takamichi: Tomomasa, it’s getting towards the end of the series- I want to participate in the final battle. Continue reading “Harukanaru Toki no Naka De parody episode 25”

Harukanaru Toki no Naka De parody episode 24

A red moon of evil shines over Kyou. Akram, Ikutidal and Sefuru watch as Ran infects the three stolen Yu-Gi-Oh cards with the power of darkness.

Akram: Gwakakaka, with this latest plan we demons shall surely gain control over the Four Gods that we stole ages ago. Kyou will be ours, and nothing can stop us…except perhaps the Ryuujin no Miko and her eight destined bishounen.

Yasuaki talks to his master, Abe no Seimei. Continue reading “Harukanaru Toki no Naka De parody episode 24”

Harukanaru Toki no Naka De parody episode 23

Yasuaki wastes a couple of minutes angsting over budget-saving stills and flashbacks.

(Yasuaki: It’s episode 23, and we still don’t have much of a plot!)

Takamichi arrives at the latest Hachiyou meeting.

Akane: Takamichi, have you been getting enough sleep lately?

Takamichi: Tomomasa’s been keeping me up all night, but I’m fine. Continue reading “Harukanaru Toki no Naka De parody episode 23”

Harukanaru Toki no Naka De parody episode 22

Akram stands in front of the sealed Four Gods.

Akram: Hmm, episode twenty-two…I suppose it’s about time I did something. Black Dragon, come to me!

Tenma is visiting Ran, who suddenly becomes silent and distant for a moment.

Tenma: Don’t scare me like that, Ran. For a moment I thought you might try to leave me again.

Ran: Why do you need me, anyway? You neglect me for episodes on end now that you have Akane. Continue reading “Harukanaru Toki no Naka De parody episode 22”

Harukanaru Toki no Naka De parody episode 21

haruka21.jpg

One night, Ikutidal and Inori’s sister Seri are on a boat together.

Seri: Why can’t humans and demons just get along? It would render the series pointless, but we wouldn’t have to hide our forbidden love.

Ikutidal: I’m afraid we must be slightly tragic lovers, now with a child on the way.

In Kyou, a drought is killing all the crops.

Fuji: This is awful- the demons have used their inconsistent powers to inflict a drought upon us. Continue reading “Harukanaru Toki no Naka De parody episode 21”

Harukanaru Toki no Naka De parody episode 20

Takamichi is randomly wandering around when he happens to see Shirin.

Takamichi: Shirin! What are you doing here?

Shirin: Why, I’m here to see you, of course. My goal is to make you doubt your HARD GAY leanings.

Takamichi: I shall never stray from the path of HARD GAY!

Shirin: Mwahahaha, we shall see about that! Behold my pathetically ineffectual item of the week! Continue reading “Harukanaru Toki no Naka De parody episode 20”

Harukanaru Toki no Naka De parody episode 19

haruka19.jpg

Ikutidal visits Akram.

Ikutidal: Reporting as requested, sir.

Akram: I may have requested that you report in five minutes ago, but now I insist that you do not return until the heroes are defeated. You must carry out my will, whilst I sit here and ineffectually curse Kyou.

Ikutidal: Whatever you say, sir. I’ll go and arrange a monster of the week. Continue reading “Harukanaru Toki no Naka De parody episode 19”
