"re: megatokyo book 2"

Monday - July 7, 2003

[Piro] - 12:15:05 - [link here]

First, I would like to apologize for the lack of information regarding the status of Megatokyo book 2. The response to the publication of the first book far exceeded anyone's expectations, and I know that many of you are eagerly awaiting the publication of the second volume. I have an announcement to make regarding this and future print volumes of Megatokyo.

I.C. Entertainment (formerly known as Studio Ironcat) will not be publishing Megatokyo volume 2 or any future volumes of Megatokyo material. If you have pre-ordered Megatokyo volume 2 from I.C. Entertainment, please contact them directly regarding the refunding of your preorder.

In addition, please note that IC Entertainment will not be publishing any future installments of 'warmth' in 'AmeriManga'. This does not mean that 'warmth' will not continue - it just means that I will more than likely offer it free to the web, in much the same way that Megatokyo is presented. I will provide more information about the status of 'warmth' in the near future.

The decision to no longer work with IC Entertainment was my decision and has been made for reasons which I will not get into at this time. I have been holding off on the announcement for well over a month, but I feel that any further delays are unfair to fans and loyal readers of Megatokyo.

Now, this does not mean that there will not be a Megatokyo book 2, it just means that IC Entertainment will not be publishing it. I have a lot of options. I could find a new publisher (a very strong possibility because MT readers helped make the first book a proven success), I could publish it myself (sort of like a doujinshi or self published work) or, who says it needs to be in print? The comic is all right here, and it's not like the lack of a print volume will deny any readers access to the story :) I feel that doing the books right is far more important than rushing to print, now or in the future. I will pursue the options that work best for Megatokyo and the future of my work.

I would like to thank all of you for your support and want to assure you that this announcement does not put the future of Megatokyo in any doubt - Megatokyo is going strong, and intend to keep it that way.

Oop ack!

"Con Madness"

Sunday - July 6, 2003

[Dom] - 22:00:00 - [link here]

I just got back from Anime Expo. Four days of work. Urgh. And just think, I get to go to SDCC in two weeks, with Otakon a couple weeks after that.

I love my job. Really I do. I swear.

So in the spirit of con reports past, here are entirely random notes I collected over the course of the convention:

It's really, really weird for both parties involved when your cousin asks you for your autograph. Especially when the cousin involved used to rub your bald spot for good luck (long story). I don't think we looked directly at each other after that.

Somewhere, someone still has my boxers. I want them back.

I think I watched more of the "Girls Gone Wild!" commercial than actual TV while I was in the hotel room.

I successfully forgot one thing everywhere I stayed: three pairs of socks, two keychains (not just the chain, but the keys too) and my E3 messenger bag. I suck.

Sister Princess? Are the guys at ADV insane, or just horny?

I should never be allowed near a store with two dollar manga again. My bookshelf is already starting to sag.

FutaKoi scares the crap out of me.

Kisa, of Fruits Basket, needs to be punched at every opportunity. In the face. Anyone who doesn't think so is obviously a pervert. Or criminally insane.

Ardith Santiago, of Anime Gamers/Synch-Point, is such a little darling. I miss talking to her at every con.

On a related note, Koge Donbo is a peddler of evil. For the third year in a row, I've bought the Chocola box. Dammit!

From my interview with him, I learned that Kazuki Akane (Heat Guy J) wanted to make a show about a manly man. A man among men. A heroic hero. You know, a man. So he made a show about a cyborg.

I want to cosplay again. I really do. But I can't do it this year, and may be very limited in doing it next year. Damn the professional veneer! If Josh Kushins of Bender/Helper can cosplay, why can't I?

And that's all for today. Dom sleep now...
