N.U.S. October 24, 2006

Hey all,

Well, Newscast Live: Redux has come and gone. The book was a marginal success, as were the standees. Personally, I thought it was a lot of fun, even if most people were there looking only for Naruto fan art. Ah well. I'll be loading some pictures as soon as

A) I get my camera to talk to my computer. They've had something of a falling out... or
B) I get the pics from Stuart to use.

either way, photos soon.

So guess what?


That's right, as of October 24, 2006 Newscast has officially run 100 comics on this site. It's amazing that I am finally here, and it means a lot to me that I have readers to share it with. The festivities will be taking place throughout the week, and vary on whatever I feel like posting that day. Watch for good stuff!

Well, I'll elaborate more later, but now I have to go take care of some menial stuff. *sigh*

60 men all lost at sea, all of them drunk except for me. Twas I who had to face the storm with nuthin in sight to keep me warm. Yo ho Yo ho! Over the raging sea we go!

N.U.S. October 17, 2006

Hello everyone, and welcome back to Newscast. I'm your on-the-spot reporter Ayame Maehara.

The AnimeBanzai countdown has officially begun. With less than a week left before the big event, I sit here desperately trying to get ready. I'm expecting things to go reasonably well, but so far progress has been somewhat slow. Ah well. It'll all work out.

Regarding today's comic:
It seems I am having a bit of a problem with...I dunno, some component of my internet access. My FTP client keeps timing out when I try to upload the comic, so if you can't see it yet, be patient. I'll try uploading it again in a little bit.

So, after I found out that EB Games was going to be taking preorders on the Wii (finally), some friends and decided that it would be rational to spend 13 hours camped out on a cold sidewalk in October waiting for the store to open.


Being someone who has waited in line for other things, I knew how to do things right. So I packed up coats, blankets, a TV, a DVD/VCR player, food and beverine, several movies, my GameCube and an industrial extension chord and soon, we were playing Super Smash Bros and watching The Venture Brothers. In short, a good time was had by all.

The best part? Well, two. first off, we met a delightful fellow in line who took a gander at a test-version of the comic. Now he's joined the forums and seems to enjoy the comic. That's another into our deadly fold! HA HA HA HA! And the other great thing is that I am now #1 in line for a Nintendo Wii system. Launch day, I WILL OWNZ YOU!

(I took pictures, but I can't find the chord for my camera, so I'll be posting them tommorow).

In latter news, there is none. I'll be doing something special to commemorate comic #100, but it won't be this week. The comic will be up, but the special thing might have to come a little later, lest the story drop another update day.

Newscast- Of course it's funny. It's already won THREE Henry Kissinger awards!

N.U.S. October 11, 2006

Hey all,

Not gonna say a lot today, I don't have the time. Suffice it to say, the comic is up and I am happy. Actually, the coloring ruined it, but ah well. I was gonna upload some photos, but the camera is being stupid, so I can't.

Um, sorry for the lack of updates lately, I've been so overwhelmed with Halloween, Newscast Live, work, getting ready for the Wii....it's been a neverending hastle. Hopefully, this will get me back on track.

Oh, and one other thing...


They'll only be in Black and White (with color covers) cause they're too expensive to make otherwise. Sorry folks, not that I think anyone is heartbroken or anything...

Check this: Awesome. I like Go-Karts! VRROOOM! VROOM!
