Tsubasa & XXXHOLiC 2008 Calendar!

We’re a bit further than the middle of the year and Kodansha has announced the list of calendars for 2008. Among them are, of course, the usual Tsubasa + XXXHOLiC calendar, to be released by the end of this year.

Apart from that, Ageha Ohkawa wrote on her Private Board that she had written the script of the 3rd Holitsuba Gakuen Drama CD beforehand, and that not only the script but also the recording sessions have ended successfully. She also added that we shall see how the jackets will look like on Shonen Magazine #38 (on sale on 08/22) and Young Magazine #39 (on sale on 08/27).

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be released tonight. Finally. I am exploding in excitement to read it. This was probably the longest week ever, I thought about this book more than a million times through it XDDDD
I don’t know when my copy will arrive, I’m counting tomorrow, but I’m not sure. I don’t know how much time will the reading consume of me, so I might be away (more than I currently am) from internet and LiveJournal for a while.

This is it! It’s the final book! ALL the answers will be there, you don’t live this emotion everyday! It’s the decisive conclusion of an entire fandom! It’s just too great.

I would like to count with the comprehension and collaboration of everybody and ask you please not to post any spoilers, please don’t ruin mine or anyone else’s fun. Thanks a lot! ^__^

Have a good reading, everyone!

Happy Friends day to all my friends, in special to koalaexe, who’s celebrating his birthday in this date. Happy Birthday, may all your wishes come true! ^____^

Harry Potter: New domestic trailer of Order of the Phoenix

The official, longest, MARVELOUS, [insert here your favorite compliment] and most awesome new domestic trailer of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix trailer is already available at Yahoo.com.

SIMPLY PERFECT !

It’s my favorite trailer so far! And I think this is going to be the best movie yet (and I really like PoA!). This trailer is LONG, which does the justice to the HP movies (I hated that they were always so short while most trailers aren’t). And it actually has a sense, it’s not just a bunch of scenes thrown in no particular logic. Very good job for the people who worked on it! thank you for giving Hermione lots of lines ^___^

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix opens July 13th.

Harry Potter: International Trailer of Order of the Phoenix

The official international trailer of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix has been released today!

You can download it here (so far no QuickTime format available yet).

The trailer is absolutely great, one of the longest (if not the) Harry Potter trailers ever released. It features a bunch of new scenes and some of which we’ve already seen in the first teaser.

By the way, this is just the international trailer, and not the official second trailer, that shall yet be released very soon.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix hits the theaters on July 13th.

EDIT: The 2nd official trailer will debut on May 4th, before the Spider Man 3 movie.

EDIT 2: WB has announced that the trailer will be released via satellite on April 24th.

Harry Potter: Deathly Hallows covers revealed!

The covers of all versions of the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows have been officially announced today by Scholastic and Bloomsbury.

UK (Bloomsbury Publisher): Children’s Version | Adult’s Version
USA (Scholastic Publisher): Cover | Full illustration

Bloomsbury also announced today the official page count for the British edition: 608 pages (that’s about the same size of HBP).

———-

Like pretty much always, HP covers disappoint big time xD They could not look any uglier in the Children’s version xDDDD But I never liked HP due to the art, I have CLAMP for that xD In fact, they should hire CLAMP for that, lol XD

Apart from that, they don’t reveal much of the story, which was expected, although I might have a guess of where they are in the Children’s Version illustration.

I was very glad to see that Ginny is not on the cover xDDDD

Harry Potter: US edition of Deathly Hallows to be 784 pages long

In an official press-release, the American publisher of the Harry Potter books announced that the last book of the series will have 784 pages in total.

That makes Deathly Hallows bigger than it’s predecessor, Half-Blood Prince (608 pages), but smaller than Order of the Phoenix (870 pages).

In other words:

Order of the Phoenix > Deathly Hallows > Half Blood Prince > Goblet of Fire > Prisoner of Azkaban > Chamber of Secrets > Philosopher’s Stone.

Please bear in mind that this applies only for the American edition, the British one is always a bit shorter due to different page-layouts.

Now we wait until Bloomsbury (the British publisher) releases an official note about the number of pages of their edition (which is the one I’ll be buying)

*looks at the calendar hopelessly* Damn it… not yet July *sigh*
