Haruhi manga licensed in Singapore by ChuangYi comics

11 12 2007

This is freaking awesome.

It might not be the original light novels, but Chuangyi is still the first company to have licensed the Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu manga version, announced on the Chuangyi forums here(you need membership to view).

It’s going to be out early 2008, under the English translated title ‘The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya’.

Excuse me while I fangirl more over Chuangyi’s EPIC WIN-ness.

In your face, tokyopop/VIZ/DHM/Del Rey!

And on an entirely unrelated note : The article in Straits Times on Gail Simone had an error. The Birds of Prey tv series came out before Gail helmed the comics.  😀

Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu Live-Action?

5 10 2007

While surfing tags on WordPress, I stumbled upon this post for Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu.

There’s going to be live-action, something of which I had no idea at all, but it seems to be a pretty old post..

I always have misgivings towards live-actions, mostly because of my disbelief that real actors can pull off what anime characters do.

However, since the actress is Misa from the Death Note movies..I’ll be looking out for it.

While we’re on the subject of live-action, where’s the first episode of the Magister Negi Magi live-action?

I don’t know, but Haruhi is someone that definitely has something to do with Odex.

Again, image-centric post with more comparison of Odex vs. A.F.K subs. You know the drill, Odex on top, A.F.K at the bottom. Or you could say, bad quality pics of Odex on top and and high quality screencaps of subs below.

I agree with you, Haruhi-sama.

Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu fanvid and more Odex failures

26 09 2007

I was thinking of blogging about this little fanvideo of Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu, when I decided to check out my Blog Surfer.
And guess what? This was the little tidbit I found.

Odex copied a.f.k.’s subs wholesale. Or more like, very heavily referenced.

Apparently, Chraen remembered to switch on the TV to tune in to Ch 56 and watch the premièring of Haruhi(which I totally forgot about..).

Well, I won’t attack Odex on their dubbing, since contrary to what The New Paper thinks, I had no expectations for that in the first place.

But Odex. Still copying fansubs even after all the ballyhoo about admitting to your own mistakes in using fansubs as reference?


There’s no end to the (0.0)y -ing.

On the other note;

Crunchyroll’s admin Shinji put up the Mai HiMe promo on the Featured Media section on the frontpage, which made me go OMG more Mai HiME?!?! when it was just the old ecchi promo. /sad

Sadly, since the Haruhi fanvideo is on Crunchyroll, there’s no way I can embed it here. So go over to CR and watch the fanvid there.
