R.I.P Tokyopop

Just found out that Tokyopop is closing it's North American publishing operations on May 31s, 2011. Tokyopop has brought some great titles to the US, such as Love Hina, Ai Yori Aoshi, and Fruits Basket. They were also the first publish manga in it's original right to left format. It's disheartening to see such a leader in the US manga industry have to close it's doors. But, it seems the loss of their Kodansha licenses was just to much for them to come back from.

Tokyopop, you will be missed.

In a Hole in the Ground There Lived a Hobbit

Peter Jackson has posted his first video blog from the set of the Hobbit. The video shows the reconstructed Bag End and Rivendale, as well as the orc caves where Bilbo has a fateful encounter. I really can't wait for The Hobbit part 1, but these videos should help make the wait a little more bearable.

TRON and an Eroge

Picked up TRON Legacy this week, and as a big fan of the original I had to get The Ultimate TRON Experience.

This 5 disc set comes in this collectible case shaped like an Identity Disc, which lights up. The 5 discs it comes with are TRON Legacy 3D Bluray (in case I ever get a 3D TV), TRON Legacy Bluray, TRON Legacy DVD, TRON Legacy Digital copy, and the original TRON on Bluray.

I also got the English language version of Da Capo, which is Mangagamer's first retail release of an eroge they have translated. It came with a soundtrack and art book. I'll probably play through it once I finish Dragon Age 2.
