Well, it looks like 2017 is already upon us. Where does the time go?!
2016 was a pretty good year for the Tentacle Master with various convention appearances around the world coupled with a successful kickstarter campaign initiated by FAKKU to get the first volume of Urotsukidōji it’s first official English release in well over a decade. I’m sure that 2017 has lots more goodies in store for the big guy too with the impending release of the Urotsukidōji movie OST courtesy of the amazing guys over at Tiger Lab Vinyl being just one thing that we can’t wait to get our hands on!
Personally, for me 2017 has started in the best possible way as I was lucky enough to go for beers with Maeda-Sensei last weekend and get a whole bunch of his books signed in the process! As usual we had a blast talking about his work and the manga industry in general and it was made extra fun thanks to his apprentice, Hector Hernandez, coming along for the ride too. I was actually doubly lucky as I also spent the following morning and afternoon with the Tentacle Master too! Great times!
Anyway, I hope you all have a tentacletastic 2017 and here’s to a year of health and success for us all! Thanks for the support!!
