Even in sickness, a weekly update is inevitable
A Word From Some Jabroni
I wish I could tell you that this week is the most hilarious and bodacious stock exchange report you'd have read. But that would be a huge lie.
I've been sick for most of the week, so not only has this meant only the most simple efforts to get this post up and running, it also means that I've watched far fewer shows than I normally would have (although my bandwidth is owned so I'm not even sure how true this is).
Anyway, enough dilly dalying. I gotta blow my sinuses clear across the room.
The Week In Recap
AIR GEAR 12
Is that character development I smell? Holy crap, it is! Air Gear rocked the nation with this break from tradition, as Ikki's team with the big freakin name won their first Parts War battle.
Including the aforementioned development, AIRG saw a small bump in price with other contributing factors being fanservice, a broad who looks like Kuukaku cross bred with Yoruichi, and more Agito/Akito than you can shake a stick at.
Everyone was happy to a 1/2 gain for AIRG.
"BEECKYYY!! H-Hey, Himeko!" Pani Poni Dash! nostalga via hot seiyuu-swapping action and Marvel comic references couldn't save BLDP from dropping in the exchange, after what was largely 5 minutes worth of events happening in a 22 minute pocket. Investors expect it to pick up in the following weeks.
What's with this "stealing Riku's face" shit? Does he hold personal copyright on that hairstyle or something?
BLDP cracked under the pressure and dropped 1/2 this week.
COYOTE RAGTIME SHOW 2
Those who thought Coyote Ragtime may have shot it's animation wad in the first episode came out surprised when their sophmore week delivered another strong bout of BEEG ACTIONZ.
It was an entertaining show leading to a solid rise, but they broke a cardinal rule of the ASX: "Don't sell when noone's buying." Many companies make the mistake of getting too emo too soon, and Coyote Ragtime was no exception, giving us many moments of wrought melodrama before any consumers have had a chance to properly bond with the characters.
RAGT far from held the exchange to gunpoint, but it did make a nice 1 1/2 point gain.
HIGURASHI NO NAKU KORO NI 15
Stocks dropped on Thursday for the alleged killerloli corporation. While it was pleasing to see the timelines vaguely connected together, the overall product is suffering from a loss of direction and tone as the fiscal year continues. Analysts expect these issues to lift as answers are more forthcoming, but for now investors can expect a bumpy ride.
HIGU took a 1 point fall down the proverbial stairs of blehg.
Quentin Tarantino got a taste of his own medicine this week when Japan ripped him for a change. While MUSHI stock held strong, some were bemused with Mushishi's production this week.
One investor who wishes to remain anonymous said:
"This is set around the Edo period, right? We got people livin' in wooden huts and wearing straw hats... and bitch got herself a layered rack of hair! Japan got themselves some wicked stylists back in the 1800's no doubt kid!"
Mushishi doesn't just do MILFs, it does Lolis too.
MUTEKI KANBAN MUSUME 2
Another week, and already another rival has joined the cast in the fight against the shark-like Miki. MTEKI saw positive gains coming off a solid outlay of comedy with a number of abstract—but well appreciated—visual gags (eg. the recycle bin to represent Kankuro's memories, or the dueling trains complete with sweatdrops), much like Ouran Highschool Host Club utelized back in it's heyday.
Sources close to Dai Mahou Touge have said that Punie-chan is absolutely livid over another anime character using submissions during the Summer season, and is considering payback by delivering noodles in her third OVA.
Despite taking a beating from various bloggers, MTEKI was one of the biggest earner this week.
OURAN HIGHSCHOOL HOST CLUB 15
There are two things that the Ouran Highschool Host Club does exceptionally well. One being comedy, that had always been a strong force in the series, but the other had been noticably abscent of recent. All that changed when OURAN pulled out of it's stock dive and returned to making gay entertainment acceptable for
Mo gayness lit a fire beneath OURAN's flailing stock prices.
ROZEN MAIDEN TRAUMEND 6
Feeling the sting from Barasuishou's unimpressive debut, Rozen Maiden Traumend surprised everyone by placing Suigintou—long thought to have been retired in Florida—back on the board of directors. Some saw it as an about face for the company, but most applauded it as
It's unknown as to what capacity Suigintou and her deranged medium have signed on for, but it is to be believed that she will be taking a salary cut along with reduced duties from previous.
Suigintou returned to 1/4 rise in RZNT shares.
Doing nothing but writing spooky text on a wall for half the week may be one way to cut costs, but it's also another way to make people go to sleep. xxxHOLiC delivered a strong finish, but it was unable to make up for the other 21 minutes investors lost on it.
No wonder Yuuko's always laying down. Those cow udders are ridiculous!
More spookiness like this may have saved XHOLC from a 1/4 drop.
ZERO NO TSUKAIMA 2
Analysts like where it's heading, but not without concern. Read the latest ASX feature, Crayotic Knows Everything: Zero no Tsukaima for more indepth coverage.
A 2 point gain for ZEKAI proved that bondage is rad.
