'Megatokyo' Passes $130K For Visual Novel
A Kickstarter for a "visual novel" based on Fred Gallagher’s Megatokyo has passed $125,000 in its first six days and appears headed for a much higher number. Megatokyo was one of the first successful Webcomics, with a massive audience and print collections that paved the way for other OEL (original English language) manga-style works. A visual novel is a blend of manga-like storytelling, anime-style visuals (and soundtracks) and interactive game elements. Visual novels were a key medium in Japan, along with manga and anime, but despite some efforts in the middle of the last decade (most notably by Hirameki, see "Visual Novels Starting to Catch on Here"), they never broke out of their limited audience in the U.S.
Live-Action ‘Gatchaman’ Trailer Wows Fans

Video Game High School is Back in Session
Let's face it: high school sucks. There aren't adorable host clubs. We're not piloting mechs after school. Our teacher isn't an adorable boy wizard. It just sucks. Thankfully, we can live vicariously through the web series, Video Game High School. The action comedy series takes place in a not so distant future where gamers are the celebrities and if you have what it takes, you can earn your place at the elite academy VGHS to train with the best. As protagonist Brian D. finds out though, it’s still a typical high school filled with bullies and teenage drama. Looks like it's not so different after all.
Cartoon Network will air Tenkai Knights, a new anime tied to a Spin Master Entertaiment toy line, beginning later this year, according to Today Licensing Worldwide. Spin Master is hoping for success similar to its last anime tie-in, Bakugan Battle Brawlers, a collectible game which was a massive hit in the toy aisle, due largely to its exposure on Cartoon Network. Spin Master is collaborating with Viz Media co-parent Shogakukan-Shueisha Productions (ShoPro) on the development of the property.
