Editor's Note

You may have noticed that, over the last few weeks, the SR has been bouncing back and forth between Sunday and Monday. Originally this was due to schedule slips and real life intervening on us, but the editors collectively realized that Monday actually works a lot better for us, not least because we can get the entire week into each issue without worrying about missing out on any fandom stuff put up Sunday afternoon and evening. So basically, expect the SR to drop every Monday from now on. However, also expect each issue to only hold items from Monday to Sunday; ie. anything fandom related that went up today is not guaranteed to be in this post.

Also, for those of you into Super Sentai, Power Rangers' Japanese source material, do note that their weekly newsletter, finalauraburst, has been back up and running for about a month now. We know a friggin lot of you are watching Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, so perhaps this may interest you. :)

Did we miss anything? Got news for the next report? Send it to spandexreport@gmail.com.

PS, anyone who is commenting on Gokaiger/any other toku: if you want your fic/icons/meta added to the newsletter, please comment or PM me, and you'll be included. <3

You're very welcome; FAB totally needs more love!
May. 24th, 2011 05:42 am (UTC)
Sorry (I hope hope hope you're the one to ask) but does FAB have an LJ equivalent?
May. 24th, 2011 10:29 am (UTC)
It does, and I apologize for linking to the DW side of it on both the LJ and DW Spandex Reports (that's fixed above). On LJ, it's at finalauraburst.

:D No problem, and thank you! In hind-sight, it was really dumb of me not to just search for it myself. Sorry! ^_^;;
