Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva

If you play the Nintendo DS, there's a good chance that you're already familiar with the "Professor Layton" puzzle game series. If not, then it's a set of video brainteaser games connected by a loose storyline. You have to solve a certain number of puzzles to proceed to the next part of the story.

While there have been some manga based on the games, it's only now that an anime movie has been released - "Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva". It's directed by Masakazu Kubo, best known for his work on the Pokemon movies, and has an all-star Japanese voice cast. The Tokyo Anime Center's latest exhibit features artwork from the movie, plus some of the games and plush toys. The exhibit runs until Jan. 17, 2010.

Hey Curtis, great pictures! I can see you've been busy over the break. Actually I thought of you today when I saw a One Piece exhibit. I took some pictures. - Jenni

Thanks. Most of my activity during the break has been scanning the pictures for the History of Manga series, and writing up book reviews that have become part of the backlog of posts waiting to be uploaded. I've currently got about 3 weeks of material to pick from.

Let me know when you've uploaded the One Piece photos.
