Here at AnimeMB we are still coming down from the holiday craze. So instead of giving you a rather bland set of news (nothing really interesting has happened) we have decided to let you speak up. What are your favorite titles and why? What makes anime really good for you? We want to know, so just jump ahead to the forums and tell us!
The year is coming to a close and so we have decided to present to you a, “Decade List,” allowing us to break away from the tedium of reporting news that garner three or so comments in hopes of striking an interesting conversation. Be warned this list is highly biased as it comes straight out of my personal opinion, both as a writer and an otaku.

Greetings our loyal readers! We hope that you had a wonderful holiday. We are here to bring you some good news as we are still full of the season’s spirit. Read on if you are a fan of action figures and mechas or if you happen to know someone like that and just forgot to buy them something!
Those of you who happen to be Haruhi fans and avid readers can safely say you got a nice Christmas present today seeing how the The Surprise of Haruhi Suzumiya has been officially announced. The light novel is set to debut in two volumes and have a wider release than the norm encompassing around 13 countries.
The Blu-ray and DVD versions of the film, “The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya,” have gone to a great reception, ranking highly in the Oricon charts. The film was highly expected by fans and how so! The DVD and Blu-Ray ranking speak great lengths of the film’s success.
This is probably the biggest piece of news I’ve written and I love the hell out…wait my personal opinion is not supposed to go in here now is it? Oh well. The February issue of Kadokawa’s Young Ace magazine has revealed an anime adaptation of the light novel series, “Fate/Zero,” has been confirmed.
And now we bring you the thrilling conclusion of the “Youth Ordinance Bill” vote…it passed. So hey, read on for what little news it is, since we all knew it was coming since last Friday.
We may be a little out of the loop here due to our head (note: only) writer being off for a day, but boy do we have news for you. Bad news too. Well, at least in the long run. Tokyo’s Youth Ordinance Bill, also known as that anti-anime law, has been approved as of yesterday…but what does this mean for us?
Trouble has been brewing in the land of the rising sun for a bit now due to the anime industry coming to a clash with the government. Things just got a little more serious. Ten publishers have decided to boycott the Tokyo Anime Fair in direct response to the Tokyo government’s aggression towards them. This extreme measure was first taken by Kadokawa and others have now followed suit.
The man behind the musical score of such titles as The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya has reported that he’ll be on an indefinite break due to health issues; this information comes by way of his mixi profile.
The first release of the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha The MOVIE 1st (a proud member of the ‘long and somewhat confusing title club’) has managed to pull some really good numbers on its first two weeks out in the market, conquering the number one spot twice in a row.
We are truly sorry for the week long hiatus but we are now back and ready to bring you a set of news from the past week. We have an article quota to fill and we’ll more than gladly do that for you, our beloved fans (all three of you)! So sit tight and enjoy this week’s ” highlights” (otherwise known as the articles we should have put up).
We’ll tell you right now that this week hasn’t been “big” so far, but that’s no reason to stop reporting at all. We hereby bring you little news-worthy announcement and a bit of commentary that’s sure to interest more than just one of you (out of our like three readers.)
