50 Percent More "Gaiden" A Year? It Could Happen...! - JOURNEY TO THE REST AREA

09:33 pm - 50 Percent More "Gaiden" A Year? It Could Happen...!
Blurrrg. The company I work for has just moved from its rental warehouse home of nearly 10 years to a mondo new building in the next prefecture north. The last two weeks are a blur of packing and tearing down and setting up and unpacking and inventorying. But we finally got done yesterday--just in time for 'way more enjoyable things, like the new WARD...which had some exciting news! (BTW, the new WARD was supposed to be the Autumn 2007 issue, but came out labelled "Winter 2008." My local bookstore, which usually gets a quantity of 3, was told there wasn't an Autumn 2007 issue and didn't receive the Winter 2008 issue; another area bookstore that has carried it in the past also didn't have it. Fortunately, Animate had a healthy stack [just had to go halfway to Tokyo to get to the nearest Animate!]. Here's hoping that any confusion over the issue's date change won't cause a problem for any other bookstores or importers!)
Anyway...verbatim from Journey To The REST:
11/16/2007: 'BURIAL' OVA DELAY, BUT MUCH MORE 'GAIDEN' ON THE WAY! The release of the concluding third part of the "Saiyuki RELOAD - Burial-" OVA has been delayed from next month to February 22, Minekura-sensei announced yesterday in her Nitro diary. But, it turns out, helping make the wait easier will be a double dose of Saiyuki Gaiden! The Winter 2008 issue of WARD, where Saiyuki Gaiden is serialized, came out today with the announcement that the former quarterly will be published every other month in 2008. WARD's first bimonthly issue will reach Japanese bookstores on January 16.
Off to tend something that's cooking...!
