Just a reminder that Anima 4 and 5 come out later tonight/tomorrow depending on your time zone!

Edit: and they're now available digitally if that's your jam!

The ending of volume 5 features a new version of Unit 01 I've never seen before:

Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

That new Unit 01 looks like some major super robot nonsense if I've ever seen some. Floating armor extensions, really?

It's a bio-mechanical god at this point, IINM. I'm not surprised in the least.

I'm really not sure what this form is. It shows up in the very last pages of the story.

I discovered something interesting: the first volume of the Anima tankouban, while corresponding the first chapter (or "season") of the story in serialized form, is actually written completely from scratch. None of the serialized episodes for Chapter 1 appear in the tankouban, and accordingly the serialized Chapter 1 will not be translated by Seven Seas!

The reason for this insanity is mentioned in the Visual Book, where the tankouban's redone first chapter (confusingly, the "episodes" are instead called "chapters" in the five tankouban...) makes its debut. The serialized Chapter ("Season") 1 was written not by Yamashita, but by his "sensei" Takuma Kageyama, a novelist and sci-fi enthusiast, as a favor. I'm guessing the redo was done for the sake of consistency if nothing else. It's easy to find complaints about Yamashita's writing style in the Japanosphere, so this makes me wonder... whose Chapter 1 is better? Will some gallant sucker ever translate them, knowing an alternate version is going to be translated anyway? Hopefully, one day, this mystery that I only just learned about in the past 24 hours can be resolved...

I've also asked Seven Seas if they are planning on localizing the Visual Book as well; hopefully I get a useful reply.

On a final note -- I wonder if the remaining scans for Chapter 3 will ever turn up...? It would be nice to see how the content between the serialized and tankouban versions differs -- and have the original Japanese at my fingertips if I wanted to translate something not included in the tankoubans. I'm not really in any position right now to import any number of bulky magazines, so perhaps some angel out there will hear my prayers.

I have some additional bits and bobs translated, but I'm going to wait for the clarification about Visual Book for the moment. I didn't pay much attention to Anima before, but now that I'm looking more closely, it's much as I suspected -- simultaneously fascinating and inane.
