OTDT Roundabout 1 June 2014
Happy June! Have the week in ICYMI.
-Simultaneous releases are becoming more common with movies and anime. Now manga is getting into the action, and it’s a pretty important one, too.
-More tech stuff: There’s a reason why our website is a dot net; Google’s driverless cars allow me space to champion Dennou Coil; you can’t unlock your cell phone in Japan…yet; and NHK is getting close to giving you literal feels.
-Congratulations to Utada Hikaru on her hopefully long and prosperous marriage. In other music news, Taylor Swift does PSA’s, Namie Amuro collaborates, and the global music industry got beef with YouTube.
-JR West’s upcoming sleeper train pushes the limits of the IMAGINAAAATION! (Sorry)
