Makoto Shinkai, No Autographs at BFI 5cm Screening?

Well, just two weeks until 5cm goes onto the big screen in London, with BFI starting the screening off with a live interview with the producer Makoto Shinkai himself. As of now, most of the central seats appear to be filled with over 200 people booked in. Think I'll just have to take a side seat near the middle. Otherwise I'll have a sore...


Surprise Obama-Clinton Talks

I don't really pay attention to elections but the race between Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton has been in the news spotlight for a long time now so, I couldn't help but follow some of the events. I think it was fairly obvious Obama was going to win the primary season but, Clinton also deserves applause for not letting her supporters down...

When asked if it was because they stocked too little due to few orders being placed, the staff replied it was...

Last 6 Minutes of Unaired Code Geass R2 Episode 3 Leaked

When I first saw this "6 minutes" of Code Geass R2 raw floating around, I dismissed it thinking it was just some promotional video or something. It wasn't marked as episode three and I don't keep track of Anime news. Thanks to reader Calvin, I now know it's actually a leak of the next episode due this Sunday. I don't know why anyone would...


Makoto Shinkai Settles in UK, London

After arriving in London for around a month now, Shinkai seemed to have finally settled down enough to post on his website about his wellbeing. He writes: March 20th 2008 My friends in Japan have told me that the cherry blossoms are about to bloom [over there]. However, [here] in London it still feels very much like Winter. Theres...
