This is truly a great week for English voice overs in anime/manga promos. This one is more a gag for a Japanese audience than for actual English speakers, but after Tuesday's international Berserk trailer, we're now getting a must hear promo for the limited edition of volume 5 of Fullmetal Alchemist manga author Hiromu Arakawa's agricultural manga Silver Spoon - featuring a real bonus tea spoon. Check it out after the jump.
In her follow-up to mega-hit Fullmetal Alchemist, manga author Hiromu Arakawa drew on her upbringing as a Hokkaido farmer to write Silver Spoon. To promote the new release of volume four, a series of ads re-create a day in the life at the series' agricultural school. Check them out after the jump.
The Japanese publisher Shogakukan is producing 1 million copies of the fourth volume of Hiromu Arakawa's Silver Spoon manga in its first printing. Publishing 1 million for the first printing only after 15 months from its serialization start is the fastest record in the history of the company. Hit the jump for more details.
Some big names in the field have contributed to the two newly released volumes of Magazine House's Hometown Manga series. Lupin III creator Monkey Punch and Fullmetal Alchemist's Hiromu Arakawa are among the manga artists who write about growing up in Hokkaido prefecture, while Captain Harlock creator Leiji Matsumoto headlines the Fukuoka collection.
