The end is nigh - Female Gunpla market burgeoning:

http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/dy/national/T110301007125.htm

The article talks about how the market for Gundam/.etc model kits with men is more or less completely stagnant, so manufacturers have begun to shift their marketing focus to women.

An excerpt from the article:

"Chiyo, 29, became hooked on making plastic models in the summer of 2008, her interest piqued after watching a Gundam DVD at home. She decided to make a model of the popular character and purchased a kit at an electronics retail store."

Oh God, she was watching Destiny, wasn't she.

Firefly returns to TV on Science Channel.
http://www.cnn.com/2011/SHOWBIZ/TV/02/1 ... index.html

"The Science Channel has acquired the rights to the cult-hit and will air the series in its short-lived entirety, plus some new extras. Science Channel will wrap each episode with interstitial segments starring renowned physicist Dr. Michio Kaku, who will discuss the theoretical science behind the show's sci-fi concepts"

The artical also has the interview with Nathon Fillion where he mentioned that if he could he'd by the rights to the show which has misinterprated by fans and has sparked the rabid fandom to start fundraisrs so Nathan Fillion can buy the rights. Fillion has stated that he dose not wish to buy the rights to the series and will donate any money he receves to charity.
