It's week 2, and I'm still going strong! As you can see above, I made major progress on Shattered Skies this week. Hopefully, in the next few days I'll be done with Chapter 12, and I can finally move on to the long-awaited Sailor Moon chapters.
Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare, for...
- This year, one of my goals is to start the process of getting Tasakeru published. I'm happy to announce that I've accomplished one of the major steps in that process... my first choice for a cover artist has responded to my inquiry, and is very interested! More on this as it develops.
- Speaking of Tasakeru, yesterday I got a commission of Zero and Hanami from Ender on Tumblr, which turned out fantastic! Check it out below. Ender is currently taking commissions, so please click the link for more details!
- After a lucrative month of petsitting back in October, I splurged on something a bit outside my usual price range... not for my ongoing magical girl project, but just simply because I wanted it. After a long run of delays, I finally got hold of it on Friday. A shining example of engineering and gorgeous craftsmanship, I give you the Soul of Chogokin GX-34 GunBuster, Gokin Color Edition! This beast is twelve inches and nearly three pounds of GAR, badassedness, and genuine Bandai Chogokin alloy, and it's a stunning addition to my collection.
- HOLY COW, STEVEN UNIVERSE. I've been telling people that this week's Stevenbomb was the best ever, with five instant classics in a row. The only downside was that I'm now chomping at the bit for more... gonna be a loooong wait for the next run of episodes. Naturally, I wouldn't dare spoil anything for those of you who haven't seen it yet, but damn. That was some masterful television all around.
- Square-Enix finally provided an update on the remake of Final Fantasy Adventure, now retitled "Adventures of Mana". FFA was one of my favorite RPGs ever, and I vividly remember spending around a month in high school staying up late at night to play through it. The ending left me a sobbing wreck, even with a sub-par translation, and the soundtrack became one of my all-time favorites even on the original Game Boy's primitive soundchip. Going to the website and hearing the new orchestrated version of the title track, "Rising Sun"... I got goosebumps, I swear. It's too bad it's only coming out for iOS and Android over here, not the Vita... but I guess if I get a wireless controller and a used iPad, it won't be much of a problem to play it.
- The Infinity arc of Sailor Moon Crystal is starting earlier than I expected! It drops in March, and will have a new director and character designer. It's also moving to TV instead of web-only... I hope that means no more weird twice-monthly release schedule. I also desperately hope that Crystal retains manga!Saturn being an awesome little badass and wiping the floor with Pharaoh 90... please, please, please! I need more of Saturn being awesome in my life!
That's about it for this week. See you around!
