Any Synthetiks-related news, Davecat? (Apr 2006)

Sdtrk: ‘Psychedelic underground’ by Nurse with wound

Mostly print-related, but yes, there is news!.. Anu of Image Emailed me today, stating that the issue with the story will see print next week, so for those of you who live, or can otherwise just bicycle over to Finland, go grab a copy. He says that he’ll send a translated version rather soon, as my knowledge of Suomi is shockingly limited.
I’m debating whether or not I should sit on it and post it on Sidore-chan’s site when it’s back up, or to post it here.. hrmm..

Also, there’s apparently an article about an iDollator colleague in the latest Sacramento News and Review, which can be found right here. Quite ace!
In that vein, I really need to be more up on reporting about Synthetik-related articles that have to do with people who aren’t myself or the Missus. Like, did you see the one related to fellow sexy iDollator Wanda? It’s appeared in an English publication called Metro UK, and the online version would be here. My personal opinion? It’s a bit judgemental, but my friend Wanda is in print, so there’s some good that’s come of it..

And there’s a new Synthetik-related manga available in English — well, it’s a manhwa, actually, as it’s by a Korean bloke named Youjung Lee. ‘0/6‘ is the title, and it’s published by Netcomics. So far, nothing can top Mitsukazu Mihara’s ‘DOLL‘ series as far as Synthetik-related manga for me, but I’m finding ‘0/6’ to be only okay; the art is passable, the story seems to be off to a slow start, the main character is a bit of a nebbish, and the Gynoid seems to be a wee bit overpowered, but I’m hoping that the story begins ramping up soon, as indicated by events in the last couple of pages in the first volume. We shall see!

Err, and that’s the lot for now! Have an obligatory picture of Actroid DER-chan for your trouble


Awww, somebody wants a hug!

    Hey DC, tx for posting the link to the article about “Dr. Jackson”. Never would have seen it otherwise.

    Hey Wanda –
    You’re welcome! Now you know what most of my research concerns. 🙂

    Does the Actroid have articulated hands yet?
    She’s lookin’ pretty cool, otherwise!

    SafeT
    Actually, yes she does! I mean, she can’t grip anything heavier than a microphone yet, but I’m sure they’re working on it..

    i read the article you mentioned just now as the mag dropped in my mailbox. the only interesting article in the issue actually.

    the picture of you two playing some game together sitting on the floor was cute. i find the topic of having a doll as a partner rather interesting. i can understand how it can be nice and i’m happy u found Sidore.

    it was also mentioned that u have a list of your fav ‘artificial women’ online but i couldn’t find the list… i wonder if the girl from cherry 2000 is on it…i saw the movie ages ago but somehow liked that girl a lot.

    anyway, take care 🙂

    Hey jen –

    Sidore-chan and I say thanx for your kind and thoughtful words! I’d comment on your blog, but.. well, I can’t. 🙂 But it’s always good to get feedback from open-minded people, as you well imagine!

    O, and that Gynoids list? You can find it here..

    Hope to hear from you again, and take it slow!

    oh dear, cherry 2000 is #1 on your list! i’m so glad i found someone else who tought the ending was horrible. very cool.

    Jen –

    Cherry 2000 will always be my No.1 Fave Fictional Gynoid (Non-anime category). I dunno though; I’ve just started watching my copies of ‘My living Doll’, and she may have a new challenger with Rhoda, a.k.a. AF-709. Her mannerisms are really cute, plus she sounds like Nico from the Velvet underground. rrrowr. 🙂

    And check eBay for ‘Cherry 2000’ DVDs! I’m fairly certain there are copies floating round out there somewhere..
