YNN Breaking News: Maria Watches Us/Maria-sama ga Miteru News

September 9th, 2010

Today’s post is an early bit of linkblogging, a pre-Saturday mini YNN report, if you will.
 

Yesterday we had some breaking news from Right/Stuf Nozomi. From their press release:

RightStuf/Nozomi Entertainment Streams Maria Watches Over Us  Season 1 at http://www.YouTube.com/NozomiEnt

They also present Q&A with creator Oyuki Konno at http://www.mariasama.rightstuf.com

Also, from the world of Maria-sama ga Miteru, here’s a whip with which to flagellate ourselves: Those folks who are seeing the Maria-sama ga Miteru Movie in Japan will receive a pile of commemorative items, including a clearfile and a “Secret Episode” book! I’ve already checked the flight costs and man, if it weren’t highway robbery, I’d so be there to see the movie. Thanks to Komatsu-san for the tip on this.

Appropo to nothing, here is a incendiary post by David Welsh, in which he calls out those folks culpable in the lack of critical respect given to Moto Hagio and other female writers (including the crime committed by A Drunken Dream and Other Stories‘ own publisher of saying “this isn’t like other shoujo manga – it’s not crappy.”) I contributed a confrontational comment and am waiting to be called sexist for it.

    Wow, just watched season 1 episode 1 after an accidental season 4 Marathon (I honestly intended to only watch disk 1 last night, really truly, but then I wanted to see if it couldn’t have been a three disk set with the first four episodes on disk one ~ which would have indeed been a fine set ~ and, and, and, and then it was episode 13 … *sniff* … it should have included a Marimite Kleenex pack instead of a writing pad).

    But then turning back around to watch season 1, and my has Yumi-chan grown in a year and a bit.

    Oh, too bad I can’t see the vids in my country!! But the novels are being published here in Taiwan as well as the DVDs, so I guess it’s still fair. The website of Q&A with the author seems awesome though!! : )

    Oh, and while I would not{*} ordinarily solicit kicks and bumps in a forum board … the Press Release from Youtube/NozomiEnt on the stream has a small comment in the AnimeNewsNetwork forum, and of course if anyone who is an ANN member has something about that which they’d like to discuss (no need for it to be a response to the original comment) …

    … that would have a side-effect of keeping it closer to the top of the forum board.

    {* Include or omit this word as required to make the claim correct.}

    Now that’s a cool trailer. Seems like the actors might fit their characters, granted one could identify each one by sight easily.
