Here's some news on Fruits Basket Episode Thirteen. After some very unexpected, and some expected, delays, we should have this episode up for you on March 31. We're working hard to get everything done and ready for you. Fingers are crossed that nothing else comes up to delay the release. But please remember that everyone working on this project is either a college student or working full time, even our director and mixer.
Also, we should soon have another Con Project ready for your listening pleasure, in April. No, we're not appearing at another convention, but this is one that was recorded, in part, at Anime Vegas this last November. We're finally able to put this one together and hope that you will enjoy it.
With our director's wedding less than three months away, things will be getting a bit hectic for us at The Manga Project. We'll try to keep it to one release a month, at least Fruits Basket wise, but we can't guarantee this, so please bear with us as things get more crazy for a bit. We'll do our best, but everyone knows that life throws unexpected curve balls at you from time to time, so thank you for your patience! It is greatly appreciated.
We at The Manga Project, would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! As token of our well wishes, we present our newest episode of Fruits Basket, A Christmas special based off of the manga. We hope this bit of "foolery" will help lighting the holidays and fill your day with joy and laughter as you take a peek inside the holidays of the Sohma Family, as they try to bring some Christmas joy to those around them.
Your feedback is important to us and we strive to give you the best quality we can. Please note that this is not always possible, as we are all fans and not yet professionals undertaking a monumental project. We hope you enjoy our efforts and will share our projects with your friends and family. In return, we will do our best to give you monthly episode releases and keep to the essence of the story.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Greetings all! It's December, and, sadly, I, as the director, have to admit that we're a bit behind in both productions. Illnesses, school finals, and other items have kept us all from staying on track this holiday season. But, we have high hopes of catching back up with the coming of the new year. So, here's what you have to look forward to:
December 25: We will be releasing an episode of Fruits Basket
January: We will be releasing the second to last episode of Shadows From The Past, as well as another episode of Fruits Basket, possibly two.
February: We say goodbye to Shadows From The Past as we release the final episode of this production, but have no fear! The sequel will soon be in production. We will also be releasing another episode of Fruits Basket.
March: Expect one, possibly two episodes of Fruits Basket this month, and maybe a Con Project (We're not sure on this one yet, but it depends on if we get panels at Fannatiku Fest this coming year or not.)
April: We hope the first episode of Mimiko's Vacation will make an appearance during this month. At the very least, you will get an episode of Fruits Basket, possibly two.
May: You should see the release of another Fruits Basket Episode and one of Mimiko's Vacation.
June: Well, you'll get at least one episode of Fruits Basket, we hope. We make no guarantees this month as the director will be getting married, but our fingers are crossed.
July-December: Expect an episode of Mimiko's Vacation, and an episode of Fruits Basket.
Everything above is, of course, subject to change. If it does, we will let you know. Official release dates will be provided as we get closer to each release.
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.
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!
Thank you Anime Fest for being such an awesome convention! For those who were able to make it out, and saw our panel about voice acting, thank you!
For those who were unable to attend, we had an onsite audition and recording session in panel for a short production, which will be posted up later this week on the website. We'll be creating a special page for these types of projects, projects voiced by you, the audience! So, if you want to be a part, down the road, just follow where we're going at the cons!
Anime Fest's show is called Giggling Training, from the Bleach fandom, and was written by Helen Taylor.
If you were one of the lucky people chosen to voice in this show, please let us know so that we can make sure you were properly credited for your work.
We look forward to seeing more of you at Anime Vegas later on in November!
Episode eleven of Fruits Basket has officially been released! We hope you enjoy the continuation of this story, along with the introduction of Hatsuharu Sohma into the active cast!
Feel free to share this, and other episodes, with your friends!
One more week to Anime Fest and our panel on voice acting!
Greetings fans, cast members, and the simply curious! I would like to announce that, as of tomorrow, Chapter Nine of Shadows From The Past: A Black Blood Brothers Fan Fiction will be available for your listening pleasure!I would also like to remind everyone that The Manga Project will be hosting a panel on amateur voice acting at Anime Fest in downtown Dallas, TX at the end of August, over the Labor Day weekend. Unless they change things, our panel will be that Monday at one pm in panel room one. IF it does change, we'll let you know! We also look forward to presenting again at Anime Vegas over the Veterans' Day weekend in November, adding in a panel for amateur mixing and editing using Audacity. More specifics on that will come the closer we get to it.
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.
