Greetings to all!
We at The Manga Project would like to apologize for not letting you know what is going on sooner. Our studio is moving! We're hoping our new location is a bit less noisy, from neighbors downstairs and next door. We have spent the last few weeks preparing everything for this move that will happen this weekend. However, we will still have to put everything back together again, which means there will not be any releases this month.
Fingers crossed, with this new move, and our main director/mixer getting married in less than three weeks, we hope to be back up and running by the end of June/beginning of July. Until then, please enjoy the previously released episodes of both our shows and hang tight!
It's the month of February, and I'm sure quite a few of you are wondering where the episodes of Fruits Basket are, since we haven't uploaded any for a few months. Don't despair. Episode Thirteen is still in production and will be released around mid March. Several technical difficulties have delayed the release, and we apologize for this, but definitely look forward to this release coming soon! We have big plans for this, and upcoming episodes, including new music!
In the meantime, the final episode of Shadows From The Past will be released by the end of this month, about the 26th, thus completing this section of our Black Blood Brothers story. But wait! The next installment of this story will arrive late summer/early fall with Mimiko's Vacation! We will have some returning cast members, as well as some new voices and characters, so look forward to that!
And, lastly, for this update, we will be, once again, presenting at Anime Fannatiku in St. George Utah! This convention takes place over March 1st and 2nd, and if you are able to make it out there, please do so! We would love to see you there! And who knows, maybe you can try your voice out for another Con Project!
Well, that's all for now. We'll keep you posted if there are any changes or other exciting things going on!
Greetings all! Thanks to all who attended our panels at Anime Vegas. If you participated in our latest "Con Project", thank you! We've already gotten some of the lines back. If you happened to get a card from me that said my email was a yahoo, it's really a gmail. I apologize for that and can only say that I was really tired as an excuse. But I will be contacting each of you who signed the list so that we can make sure everyone is on the same page.
Some news, the next chapter from Shadows Of The Past will be released at the end of this month, instead of at the end of this week, as I had originally planned. I was unprepared for the amount of time away from my computer that was required not only for the convention, but for some personal matters. However, We will be posting another character introduction for Fruits Basket this weekend instead. As such, the next episode of Fruits Basket has been pushed back to the first half of December, with a potential surprise near the end of December, so keep on your toes for that one!
All in all, thanks for a really great month! We're all having a great time over here, recording, mixing and editing, trying to get things back up and where they need to be after a rather chaotic past couple of months. We will definitely be getting back on track with a monthly release of both Shadows From The Past and Fruits Basket starting in January.
Hey everyone! Again, it's been a while since we last updated here, but there's been a few things that have happened, including the release of Episode 12 of Fruits Basket, and a cast change with the character of Shigure Sohma. Let us know what you think of the new voice behind the character! We look forward to releasing episode 13 near the end of November/beginning of December.
Shadows From The Past has been delayed in release due to technical difficulties, but the next episode will be released later on in November.
Our second Con Project will also be released in the second half of November. We will be recording for this production at Anime Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada over the Memorial Day weekend, so if you are there in the area and want a shot in the show, stop by our "Voice Acting For The Average Joe" panel! We'd love to have you stop by! Also, feel free to join us during our mixing and editing panel during the same convention, where we will be looking at how to mix and edit using Audacity.
And, for those who aren't a fan of our producer and creator, Karlie Jackson, she got engaged two weeks ago! So feel free to congratulate her if the opportunity presents!
And that's just about all for now. We'll keep you updated on official release dates as they are given to us. Until then, have a great weekend!
I know it's been a while since I posted an update here but I would like to go ahead and do so now. We've made a few changes to the website, as you can clearly see. In an attempt to help make the main page and navigation bar less cluttered, we have cleaned up a bit and linked pages in a more organized manner to help keep things simple for everyone.
We recently launched our "Con Projects" division, which will be updated with each new convention we present on voice acting. If you would like us to visit a convention near you, please feel free to email us details, and then request which ever convention you want us to attend to invite us there as official guests. We would love to be able to come to any and all that are within our means to do so.
Fruits Basket Episode Twelve is in production, though the release has been delayed due to the health of the director, along with a few other unexpected developments that have delayed the release. This episode will be released later on in October, with the potential of a double-release with Episode Thirteen, so look forward to that.
We have added a contest page to our website, with the current contest for short stories and scripts that may be used in future Con Projects. The deadline is October 20th and details can be found on the Contest page.
We thank you all for your patience as we try to get things back up and going after a rather eventful month, and we look forward to see you and many more new faces as we continue to endeavor to bring you the best radio dramas possible!
Greetings all! As you should now now, Episode Ten of Fruits Basket was released in the wee hours of the night, pending on your time zone. I'd like to think it's our best episode yet, so please go over and give it a listen. I promise, it's well worth it. I can't wait for the future episodes to come out!
In other news, The Manga Project will be presenting at Anime Fest in Dallas, TX at the end of the month of August. Yours truly, Madame Director, will be hosting a panel on amateur voice acting called "Voice Acting For The Average Joe". Not sure what time or day yet, but I'll let you know when I find out.
We will also be presenting two panels at Anime Vegas later on in November. We will be reprising "Voice Acting For The Average Joe" and "Mixing and Editing For The Average Joe". The mixing and editing panel will focus on using the program Audacity, since it's free and those on a budget can use it without worry of breaking the bank. We'll let you know the times and dates as the con gets closer.
Our next release will be Chapter Nine of Shadows From The Past.
We would like to inform you of a few changes which have affected production.
First off, we have had to recast Momiji Sohma. We hope that our new Momiji will be pleasing to everyone. Because of this change, the release of Episode Ten of Fruits Basket has been delayed. But don't worry! It will be going out July 28th.
In the meantime, we are working to bring to you another chapter of Shadows From The Past on July 17th.
We hope the delay will not inconvenience you and that you will enjoy the episodes when they are released.
Thank you for your patience!
We are pleased to announce the release of Chapter Seven of Shadows From The Past, a Black Blood Brother's Fan Fiction! You can find the link to this chapter of the story by going to our "Shadows" page about the show.
We thank you for staying with us, and for those who are new, for joining us.
The next episode we will release will be from Fruits Basket, Episode Ten, later on this month. We will let you know an exact release dater within the next week or so.
I, unfortunately, have to announce that episode nine of Fruits Basket will be postponed due to our moving studio locations. During the move, all computers are offline, but we hope to get things back up and running quickly so that we can deliver the best possible episode to you all! Please wait patiently and we'll have it ready for you in the second half of May!
I would like to announce that Episode Nine of Fruits Basket is scheduled to be released on May 5th, Cinco de Mayo. We hope you will enjoy the episode when it comes out. We are working really hard to make sure it is an amazing one!
