The lottery results will be announced on November 20th.
Just a few tidbits and reminders:
Vol 2 sold 15,000+ units. Solid numbers following vol 1. BD 3 will include the first new Senki Zesshoushinai short as well as the new Hibiki/Miku duet.
Kaneko briefly mentioned on his twitter that he actually sent a letter to the radio show anonymously, and it ended up not being read on air. He was very nervous before he sent it, claiming he felt the same level of hesitation as you would when calling the girl you like in Elementary school. I'm really curious what the contents of his letter were, but we may never know.
Twitter user Testsou created a small scrolling HTML game involving Kirika and Shirabe's contraption from episode 13 killing Noise. Click to start and move with the mouse to kill the Noise. Click to activate the scissors which are the only things capable of killing the Grape Noise and Bushi Noise. It's pretty fun.
Minase Inori had a talk show recently. Some of you may know, as I've mentioned before, she had a minor role in s1 of Symphogear as a background character. At the talk show she mentioned that she actually auditioned for Hibiki in s1 and later Kirika in s2. It wasn't until Carol in s3 that she finally got a role. Before she was told she had gotten the role of Carol, she had thought it was impossible for her and was ready to give up hope. After she found out she had been cast, she got very nervous. Apparently for good reason because there were times when she couldn't read the kanji in the script, and sweat a lot in the recording booth. At one point she got a hug from Ao-chan and recalled that "it felt good."
The rough script of episode 12 is finished for H&D. I'm working on 13. We should wrap up the series in the next week or two, for those of you interested. Thanks for sticking with us.
