  • “Demonic” and “Possessed” girl attacks a man, man gets arrested for defending himself

        I watched this in horror as the gentleman tolerated this womans attacks until he couldn’t take it anymore and stood up. What happened next was almost expected, because society sees a man and a woman fight and rushes to take down the man rather the real attacker, which is in this case the woman. After it looked like she is somehow playing a possessed person, the woman brutally charged on the poor guy sitting next to her. She first poked him and then started to choke him, punch him and pull his hair. Not a pretty sight I must say. After that the man got up and started to…

    I think the Bubblegum Crisis universe has a lot of potential as a franchise. It’s had TV shows, OVAs, videogames, novels, manga, and audio dramas. If the live action version ever gets off the ground, the franchise will have cornered most entertainment industries. But in the aftermath between Youmex and ARTMIC (creators of the first show) over where the show should go and its length, they produced a prequel series featuring BGC’s Leon McNichol. Darker and edgier than its predecessor, AD Police (not to be confused with its later 1999 TV reincarnation) blends the police procedural…

Because it’s my first time on the air, I thought I would bring out something close to my heart – MACROSS.

    A new trailer for the live-action adaptation of of Isayama Hajime’s cult hit manga Attack On Titan ( Shingeki No Kyojin ) has just been released, featuring more footages of the Colossal Titan, a first look at the Rogue Titan, and many more actions scenes featuring the Survey Corps in action. Check it out below : My initial impression is that the generic titans performed by human actors ( albeit in heavy prosthetics and make-up ) cannot fully realize the ponderous movement and scale of such massive beings. Perhaps budgetary issues prevented a full CG approach for the portrayal of all Titans.

    Honestly thought the hype to this was a joke, but yes, as we see here from this year's E3 event, Final Fantasy VII is indeed getting a PS4 remake.  Square-Enix listened and probably have been making this under the scenes for some time. FFVII was the game that made me an anime fan back in '97 and thus the creation of this site in 2002.  I think many of us should be excited about this game but also try not to expect the same charm as the original.  Maybe expect something new and different.and also.. holy s*** we are going to see Tifa in PS4 goodness!!! 0-0...On a side note:…

    19 Jun 2015 | 7:00 am
    Via some Ebay research I just realized yesterday that the hardcover Lone Wolf & Cub volume 1 manga is quite probably the most valuable of all English language manga by a very wide margin. Evidently hardcover copies of Dark Horse’s first graphic novel were a limited retailer incentive and now cost as much as $300. However, 230 copies were hand-numbered and autographed by Kazuo Koike on a bookplate featuring an exclusive illustration by Goseki Kojima. Those 230 numbered copies run $1,200 to $1,300 apiece. Mine is #98. I’ve owned it for 15 years and never realized how valuable it…

    A whole bunch of stuff happened this episode, so this post might run on for a bit.  Sue me if you think it’ll make you feel better. Bodin’s just pissed ’cause he failed out of clown college. We start right off with turmoil between church and state.  The Archpriest of the Faith of Yaldabaoth, Bodin, is arguing with Guiscard over how religious the war is.  Guiscard insists that war should be left to the soldiers and that Bodin should keep his shrouds out of the army’s business.  However, Bodin is adamant that this is a sign that a religious war is on the rise, and…

    She’s the last character I thought I’d see cry Summary: After Reina’s impressive performance in the second audition, everyone in the club is fired up. Suddenly, Taki-sensei decides that the euphoniums should play an additional section and it turns out to be quite hard. It is no problem for Asuka but for Kumiko it’s a different story. There’s just something about hard working Kumiko Kumiko declares to Reina that she wants to improve and become special too. She practices until she bleeds and wants to keep going. She practices all day long and is even willing to be a bother for…

      Considering the vampire nobility being out in full force and Yuu powering up into a one-winged thingie that just completely wrecked both foe and friend alike, the plot armor on everyone and everything proves to be too much for even a single meaningful death to occur. Among the things that annoyed me the most is the way Yuu loses all his IQ when it comes to Mika and him fighting it out when he should have retreated. Also, I know I’ve been harping on the animation from the horrid 3D models of aerial military vehicles to the extended still frames but that gas station getting…

    25 Jun 2015 | 4:58 pm
    I think the Bubblegum Crisis universe has a lot of potential as a franchise. It’s had TV shows, OVAs, videogames, novels, manga, and audio dramas. If the live action version ever gets off the ground, the franchise will have cornered most entertainment industries. But in the aftermath between Youmex and ARTMIC (creators of the first show) over where the show should go and its length, they produced a prequel series featuring BGC’s Leon McNichol. Darker and edgier than its predecessor, AD Police (not to be confused with its later 1999 TV reincarnation) blends the police procedural…

She's worked on a number of high-profile projects, including Wolf Children and The Wind Rises, and with such acclaimed directors as Hayao Miyazaki, Satoshi Kon, and Sylvain Chomet. In the transcript after the break, Suzuki talks about working with different directors, studio hijinks, how animating digitally matters artistically and morally, how that dance sequence in the Death Parade OP came to be, and much much more.

    30 Jun 2015 | 11:50 pm
    In our bid to have our Anime Music on the AIRS radio show stay seasonally relevant, we turn to anime music that touches upon the themes that we so closely associate with summer: the warm days, the sound of waves pelting the shore relentlessly, the laziness that hot weather seemingly brings, and, of course, the friendships that become all the tighter as a result of shared memories. Because of the theme, the selections might be a bit more uniform, but we hope you enjoy this recording and that you’re able to relax to it.

    Anime Review: Red Data Girl By Christopher Kinsey Shintoism is a major religion in Japan and beyond various references to the spiritual nature and the understanding of a few terms, I know precious little about it. As such it’s very hard to understand a lot of the driving forces behind this anime, Red Data Girl. As the opening titles like to point out, there was a book called the Red Data Guide which was a great resource for endangered and rare birds.   The series infers that day by day the old ways are indeed rare and along with it the traditions shown in this series.

    There was live streaming event this morning to celebrate Usagi and Chibiusa’s birthdays (which is on June 30th).  In this event we were hoping to get news on any episodes after Act 26 but this did not happen. This event was restricted outside Japan but according to people on the internet; we did not miss much. All they did was they recapped older episodes and read excerpts from the manga. Should they make more episodes (which I think they are definitely going to) it will cover the infinity arc. In this arc we get to see Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune.  We still have lots of time till we…

        I watched this in horror as the gentleman tolerated this womans attacks until he couldn’t take it anymore and stood up. What happened next was almost expected, because society sees a man and a woman fight and rushes to take down the man rather the real attacker, which is in this case the woman. After it looked like she is somehow playing a possessed person, the woman brutally charged on the poor guy sitting next to her. She first poked him and then started to choke him, punch him and pull his hair. Not a pretty sight I must say. After that the man got up and started to…

    Stand Up Comedy is starting to be popular again. It’s an event when a good comedian comes in town for both the townsfolk and the people who follow them on the TV (who even watches TV anymore?) and online. With more and more comedians we hear jokes that constantly break the limits, cross the taboos that are not even discussed in public. But you have to ask yourself, where do we draw the line? The line is difficult to draw, because jokes are created to break those barriers that keep us from moving to a more intimate level in our friendship. When you can joke about your race, sex or…
