Persona Music Live 2009 Coverage

It's Silver Week in Japan which means some of the Japanese are on holiday and that's probably also the reason why there's no update for the P3P website today. But nevermind... Lets take a look at what happened at last Saturday's Persona Music Live 2009 concert instead! Thanks to the late Twitter micro blogging craze it's slightly more...


Persona Music Live Website Renewal with Concert Footage

Yup, Atlus' Persona updates just aren't going to stop yet. It looks like the website for this year's Persona Music Live concert (which takes place next month) has been given a renewal and now shows the new heroine added to P3 Portable. And for those you interested in what the concert from last year was like, there is a trailer to watch...


The Hunter's Party Monster Hunter Room

As part of the "Hunter's Party" marketing campaign for the recently released Monster Hunter Tri on the Wii, Capcom has been working with the chain of Karaoke Pasela stores to serve Monster Hunter related food such as what you see below. The "Cha Cha Honey Toast" in the corner looks delicious! One of the stores in Akihabara has even...


Perseids Meteor Shower 2009

My patience paid off this time round. Last time I tried watching out for the annual Perseids meteor shower it was cloudy and I didn't see a thing but this time, the sky started off clear when I began watching the skies after midnight. At around 3am I saw a very long streak of light across the sky as if it was being slit open with bright light...


Evangelion Rebuild 2.0 Movie Premieres

Today was the day the Japanese finally get to see the second title in the Evangelion Rebuild series of movies subtitled, "You Can (Not) Advance" and Famitsu dropped by Shinjuku, Kabuki District to cover the première. There were over 1000 people queuing outside by half 6 in the morning where some of the SEELE "Sound Only" monoliths...


Persona Music Live Concert Coming to DVD

Thanks to reader, Elly for this. Missed this because Atlus has yet to confirm it themselves on their Atlus-D online store. It seems Aniplex will soon be publishing a recording of the Persona Music Live concert onto DVD soon on September 16th, an event that over 1400 people attended in Akasaka Blitz a few months ago! The slightly more...


Evangelion 2.0, A Bit of Rumour Confirmed About New Character

Remember the rumour two years ago about the mysterious new female character in the next Evangelion 2.0 movie? Well, I was just browsing the Gainax site curious to find out what the specs are for the new earphones being released this month but then, I came across a figure of the new heroine. Apparently, her name is indeed "Mary" - Full name...


Earth Hour 2009

"When the lights go down there is no sound... And the night becomes a shining stage." Didn't know about "Earth Hour" until today when I just happened to come across someone's post on Danny Choo.com and thought I'd join in. You're just expected to turn out the lights between 8:30 and 9:30pm to show your concern for Earth and global...


Global Shinkai Day Comes to An End

And so, Global Shinkai Day has come to an end. I literally stayed up overnight until Saturday morning at six for the first session, slept for the second then stayed for the others. The number of attendees started off pretty well. It mostly floated between the 10 to 15 people mark for the day but peaked to just over 21 while Promised Days was...


The 1st Global Makoto Shinkai Day

Just when I was reading over Kazuma Kaneko's thoughts about the "powers" of the internet and how it compares with the "spiritual world" I came across this... Looks like fans from all over the world will be gathering together at the Makoto Shinkai English Fan Forum this weekend to chat with each other while watching his movies. If you...
