Go, Pochama!

Since Target is still tinkering with resetting its shelves for the upcoming season, I do not have any toy news.  However, I do have a bit of manga news!  This week, Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea manga from Vizkids is due out; I found a copy early at my local Borders on Friday, $7.99.
Even more exciting, I found another new Japanese Pokemon manga!  Apparently, Diamond and Pearl adventures aren't just for Hareta and his Piplup-!  Check out this new Shogakukun D&P Pocket Monsters manga with Satoshi & Pikachu and Hikari & Pochama on the cover!  That's right, our ANIME heroes!  Hey, Viz, what about translating this one?  The Pikachu on the back cover is really cute; the ISBN is 978-4-09-140638-5 and it is marked "1" on the cover, so, it's a new series!  It is copyright 2008 by Takayuki Sakai.  Just like the 4 panel comic I found earlier last week, it has a streamer advertising the 2008 Shaymin/Giratina movie wrapped around the dust jacket.  Flipping through the volume, there is a lot of action/battling going on.  What fun!
I'll leave you with a picture of my 2005 Pocket Monsters poster size calendar to stare at.  2005?  Yes, that was an important year for me!  That's the year you, Pojo, posted my very first, brief column talking about the Tomy/Kaiyodo candy-toy Battle Figures with the clicking stat bases which were the precursors to the current TFG!  Keep your eyes open, PUSA has delayed long on the new expansion booster packs; didn't they mention this fall during con season?  In the meantime, I'm trying to organize my collection; today I leafed through a Pojo Unofficial Pokemon 'zine circa 2000.  :)  Fall 2008 should be a good time for Pokemon!

Addendum - Over the weekend, I discovered that the open mouth smile Pikachu beanie is not a Barnes & Noble exclusive--I spotted one at, of all places, Kroger Marketplace!  Also, toywiz.com recently updated their site and added a picture of that beanie since I looked last week.  This means if you're lucky enough to spot one, you may not have to pay $9.95-!  However, I've had a hard time finding these locally except at B&N.  The beanie appears to be in the set of variations (several of the beanies in the later shipping crate have plusher fabric and embroidered as opposed to stamped on detailing).
