Hello there! Welcome to my news corner!

I'm the sort of person who likes to prowl around and dig up information, you see as you might already know. I started this up so I could share any interesting tidbits I find~

Also, everything I just said was a lie. This is the kind of thread where I'm just going to make up some lie on the spot and then link you to a picture of Yamazaki from Cardcaptor Sakura or a Rickroll video on Youtube.

Everything above this statement is ALSO a lie,surprise! You see, I really am going to link legitimate news here but I'm also going to shove in unproved rumors and gossip as well as straight-out lies because I'm an ass and I love confusing people.

First item!

As we probably know, A's was considered to be the best out of the three anime series of MGLN. Not surprisingly, the movie was a big hit in Japan, surpassing Movie 1st ticket sales by over 250% in the opening weekend alone!

It's because of this that they're thinking about making another movie. They are steering clear of StrikerS since everyone can't stop bitching about it so they're going with the only other option left.

The PSP games.

However, the thing with the PSP games is that BoA has multiple storylines that contradict each other (since the person you choose to play as becomes the hero) so there is going to be some difficulty writing a coherent story. Also, the PSP games sales weren't exactly inspiring either so there is a good chance this project might die before it even begins.

However, if it DOES go ahead then BoA and GoD storylines will be placed in the same movie as BoA is actually kind of short ^^;;

If they are steering clear of StikerS (For a movie), then I'm kind of disappointed D= I was actually really excited for StrikerS to hit the big screen. Though I guess the PSP stories would be interesting since I've never actually played the games.

Second item non-boxes, here we go!

After much patience on our parts (although I suspect most of you forgot about this until I just said it ^^;;) the GoD manga, "Material Musume" will begin getting scanlated within the week! Raws of the manga were finally found and scanlations will soon begin~

The group in charge of it have stated that the manga is mainly a 4-koma gag/comedy manga and therefore light on text. They predict they'll finish within 3-4 weeks or so (although they also say not to hold our breath ^^;;)

This is great news for those who love the Materials! We also get to learn interesting side-information about them. For example, we all know Levi loves candy but did you know that Dearche loves spicy food? Or that Stern likes to draw? (She's bad at it though and doesn't like anyone looking at her pics XD)

Don't shrug off these things as just random nonsense either, the story writer for the manga is Tsuzuki Masaki aka the guy who wrote MGLN. Sakai Soujuurou is the artist, who also did one of the shorts in Comic a la carte.

Finally, here's the cover page of the manga! Look forward to it, alright? XD

Meh, I don't know what to think about it. INNOCENT has Precia x Lindy at least so I can bear with going back to loli times of MGLN but I won't hide that I'd like to see StrikerS the movie. True, after A's, the third season was a little bit of fail but I still believe that they can take all of it's good sides, add some awesomeness and make it shine again.

More news about this and that~

2 new figures have been announced and are available for pre-order. The first one is part of the Beach Queen series (i.e: girls in swimsuits). It's a figure of adult Nanoha in a swimsuit, take a look~

Spoiler:


The second is a figma of Nanoha from the Movie 2nd in Sacred mode. (I have no idea what that is ^^;;) Anyway, Nanoha looks cool in it so take a look at this as well if you're interested!

Vivid video game is being planned. Yep.

It's going to be on the PS Vita and it's a fighting game based on some tournament or something from the manga (I haven't actually read the manga so I might be missing some context ^^;;)

Instead of the usual "punch someone until their HP bar empties" you have to knock them out of the stage instead, similar to Super Smash Bros. Also similar to SSB, attacks will knock you further and further away as you accumulate damage. There is a bar showing your defense, which controls how far you get sent flying. Lower the bar, further you fly.

I recognise only Vivio and Einhart but there are a bunch of other players too from what I've seen (and probably unlockables as well)

The story of the game will follow the manga but also includes a bunch of alternative story-lines and what-if stuff.

The game contains some interesting extras as well using the Vita's features. The one I found to be pretty funny is the character model viewer. Now you can live out your dreams of touching Vivio! XD You also got a nifty AR thingy too. You can now have Einhart with you in real life! on your bed X3

There is also a limited edition of the game which will contain a short manga (in color) where Nanoha and Fate take Vivio to Earth. The main focus of the manga seems to be catching up on the characters everyone forgot about like Arisa and Suzuka. There also seems to be plushies of that rabbit thing and the cat thing that Vivio and Einhart always seem to have with them. There is also some kind of code/voucher thing which I assume gives you some extra DLC.

And now for screenshots!

Spoiler:


Chibi-Rider seems to have swapped out Pegasus for... some kind of lizard person?


The game is, of course, loli-tastic.

While I don't particularly care about the game, I would love to read the manga. Reading about Nanoha's family reaction to Vivio is always fun and I wonder how are they going to portray her relationship with Fate there. I mean, there is just no way to not notice something 'different' in two women raising the child who calls both of them 'mama'. And last but not least, adult Suzuka and Arisa appear!

By the way, images don't work.

It seems that the Vivid game's site is done for maintenance or upgrades or something, taking the pictures along with it. Please be a little patient, okay~? I'm sure it'll be up soon!

New Fate figure coming out.

(Wanders away for about an hour and comes back after all the fawning and comments about Fate's ass have been made)

So yeah, it's a figure based off the loli!Fate from Movie 1st. Looks like she's in the middle of battle, even her barrier jacket is ripped.

Screenshot below

Dog Days and Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, what do they have in common?

...

Okay yeah, they both have a ridiculous boy/girl ratio, animal girls, fan-service and magic in them but APART from that what do they have in common?

What? NO, EW! Get your damn mind out of the gutter, that's disgusting! Keep your weird fetish to yourself!

The answer is that both were created by Tsuzuki Masaki you fool!

ANYWAY, it turns out that the guy has expressed a desire to shove his two works together in some kind of cross-over thing. I should point out that he just said "ya know, it'd be sweet if I could cross those two shows together" which means that there isn't any work or planning being done on such a thing.

.......

That being said, there are signs everywhere that the man is totally planning on making this dream a reality. It might not have started yet but it will come soon, just you wait~

Spoiler:

Pic has been resized to fit page so you can't see the writing on the top left but this is drawn by Fujima Takuya AKA guy who draws Vivid. And then we have another pic below...

So yes, one day be treated to a MGLN/Dog Days cross over thingy. Well, another cross over if you count Nendoroid Generation ^^;;

You've almost given me a heart attack, I thought that he has already done this crossover and it was just published in Japan or something. Oh well, I guess I still have some time left to make my will and stuff...

Seriously, if Tsuzuki's going to release this, then I'm going to stop reading any of his new works and just stick to old, good TV series.

Don't get me wrong, I don't complain because I like to do so. It's just that Nanoha is my favourite anime and turning it into harem is the last thing I want to see.
