Wandering Son comes to television in January
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under televisionShimura Takakomanga 17 Dec 2010 8:11 AM

Shimura Takako's manga Wandering Son (Hourou Musuko), which we are publishing in English starting next year, is being adapted for Japanese television, with the first episode debuting on January 13 on Fuji TV's late-night noitaminA programming slot. At the show's official website you can watch a series of three trailers (one, two, three) — I found a fansubbed version of the second one on YouTube which I've embedded here. It looks like a beautifully produced show.

Here's the initial announcement as reported by Anime News Network, and here is their update on the most recent trailer.

As Elvis Costello keeps making the talk-show rounds promoting his new album National Ransom, so does Tony Millionaire's cover art. Note how Late Night host Jimmy Fallon holds the album so as not to obscure any of the artwork on Friday night's episode — nicely done, Jimmy. (Screenshot via a well-wisher of Tony's.)

OK, so we got excited when Tony Millionaire's cover art for Elvis Costello's new album National Ransom appeared as an eeny weeny thumbnail on The Colbert Report last week. Well that was just the appetizer to last night's (I suppose inevitable) main course, when Costello was the guest on Colbert's show. The two discussed the artwork (without mentioning the artist... c'mon, guys), which was plastered all over the place during the segment. Watch the episode here.

(Incidentally, Janice has been trying to contact Elvis's people to get him to do an "Under the Covers" interview about Tony's artwork — wish us luck!)
