As collectors, there is one word we are all quite familiar with, delays. Not a month goes by where we don't encounter the dreaded "D," and this month is no exception, especially if you pre-ordered some items from Good Smile and Max Factory. So, let's take a look at the list of goodies that won't reach our shores until April.
I'm a bit bummed out about Aoba, but honestly, I was kind of expecting it. At least, it gives me a little bit of a breathing room with my March pre-orders. Are any of these delays going to affect your monthly budget, Tomocchi's?

3D printers are a cool concept, but who really knows how to use those things? If your income is as low as mine, they’re really expensive, and you have to use engineering software, in most cases, in order to design the 3D object that you’re going to print out. The bottom line for 3D printers? Sounds like a lot of HOOPLAH! Sounds like a lot of HOOPLAH! I SAID, IT SOUNDS LIKE A LOT OF – HOOPLAH! *Hit with a flying brick* ...
I bought this for my nephews 1-year-old birthday, he loved it!!! He loves taking the top shell off, and eating them, of course. It'll be a while before he understands how to put them back into the carton, since you have to match the shapes. But these are adorable and different! They don't look exactly like the pictures, but they are the same product. Overall they are so cute and funny!!! -- By R Jacob

Cosplay Monday: Hilda of Pokemon Black/White by beethy
So this could be the best Pokemon-related cosplay I’ve ever seen in my life. This is Hilda of Pokemon Black and White versions, which is the female version of the main character if you didn’t know. It’s by Deviant Art user, beethy. Really well done!

I need to get my guitar out one of these days.
One for the ladies - photos of the lads taken this week when filming for Culture Japan at Tokyo Metropolitan Kokusai High School.
They are all wearing a coat called Tokkou Fuku [特攻服] with the kanji "Kokusai Danji [国際男児]" meaning "International boy (man/lad)."
The comments here and members of the Facebook page suggest that 45% of dannychoo.com readers are ladies - thought I'd take a poll to see if that's the case.

The Garden of Words or Kotonoha no Niwa [言の葉の庭] is an upcoming anime film directed by Shinkai Makoto [新海誠] (Voices of a Distant Star, 5 Centimeters Per Second, Children Who Chase Lost Voices) with production by CoMix Wave Films [コミックス・ウェーブ・フィルム], who often work together with Shinkai Makoto on his works.
The film is scheduled to premiere in theaters across Japan on the 31st May 2013.
Takao is a young high school student who is aiming to become a shoemaker. One rainy morning he decides to skip school and starts sketching shoes in a Japanese garden, where he meets a rather mysterious lady named Yukino. Thereafter, the two of them end up meeting each other at the same spot every time it rains, even though they never made specific arrangements to do so. There they chat and start to get to know each other quite well.
Yukino seems to have lost her way in life, and Takao promises he'll make her some shoes that will help her get back onto the right path. But the rainy season is coming to an end, which could mean the end of their relationship as well...
As with most of Shinkai Makoto's works, the story focuses mainly on the relationship between just two main characters.
There are a few other minor characters who have been revealed and can be seen on the official character page.

If the trailer has been eaten by YouTube, you can try this search query to find a replacement.
The ED theme for the film is "Rain", which can be heard in the trailer above and is performed by Hata Motohiro [秦 基博].

These screenshots all come from the trailer seen above. As with all of Shinkai Makoto's works, the detail put into the backgrounds is particularly breathtaking and in this case really gives a nice slide of Japanese life.
