Tired & anime licensing predictions

Too tired. A Big Gulp of Mountain Dew just barely wakes me up. Sometimes I hear voices. The toaster is telling me that there’s no air, that I can’t breathe, and that I should kill them all.

Er. Yeah. So, I’m going to try and get some more sleep so that I’m not a raving lunatic. (Too late.) Of course, my sister had to wake me up early this morning for absolutely no good reason. Next time I’m awake before her, it’ll be time for retribution.

I wish I could say that something exciting happened today, but it really was pretty dull. That, or I was just too tired to actually notice the awesome stuff occurring around me. There’s a rumor going around the office that we’ll actually get the fifth off, which I suppose is exciting. I mean, it’ll give me one more day to sleep.

This weekend is Anime Expo, if you’re into that sort of thing. Marin went to the trouble (I have no idea why) of putting together her predictions of what company will pick up which shows—though, obviously, not all to be announced this weekend—so I guess I’ll post them. Remember: if this list is correct, you heard it here first. If the list is wrong, then it was Marin’s list.

[10:00 am Update: various prediction revisions, mostly related to the (new) presence of Del Ray in the manga market.]

Yes, there’s a psychotic amount of anime out in the world. And while I don’t agree with Marin on every title, my guesses would be fairly close to hers… should be interesting to see how (in)accurate she is.
