    It's been a while since I last wrote out one of these -- and I'm so sorry for the long absence! Long story short, I have on-going back problems, but learning to deal with it thru physical therapy and patience. (I probably have a harder time with the later than the former...) Aside from learning to take better care of myself, I've also been making some business changes. Previously my business - "KimonoKitsy Studios" was a partnership between Scott and me. After dealing with over a year of tax hell, paired with Scott's promotion (and added responsibilities) at work, we decided it was best to…

Carefully curated by Phaidon editors with a consulting global team of specialists in all fields of art, the Art Museum contains over 3000 paintings, sculptures, frescos, tapestries, photographs spread across 25 galleries and close to 1000 pages of content – a museum that is open 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

    I was browsing Amazon Japan searching for potential art books to review and stumbled upon these series of children’s educational picture books, with stories and fables told through Ultraman Kaijus ! How awesome is that ? - If you are versed with some rudimentary knowledge of the Japanese written form you’ll notice by now that all the titles and words found on the covers are Hiragana characters, with very little Kanji ( Chinese characters ). This makes it easier for kids to understand as their vocabulary of Kanji is still relatively limited. My favourite cover is the one with Alien…

To summarize the first episode, it basically matches what the original first episode was those many years ago.  Crystal will supposedly be more like the manga than the original anime series was. In the manga, the girls were a bit different in personalities... for example, Amy was more of the stuck up type than Mars was made out to be in the anime.  Also, the manga went into more detail on Tuxedo Mask /…

Hilariously, the ship Deucalion is just a Terran ship with the the core and name plate ripped out from the mecha Deucalion.  Since Darzana needs Asseylum to power the ship, she graciously agrees to keep Asseylum safe until they reach Russia.  Calm is totally ok with this, since cute Martians are held to a different standard than ugly Martians, and Rayet still feels Martians can’t be trusted.  Inaho goes with a subdued tsundere approach, declaring he didn’t fight to…

While they play with a bottle of water and indirect kisses, another train passes by and the wind throws some of Futaba’s hair to Kou’s face. He finds the smell surprisingly attractive and tells that to Futaba. However, in his surprise he fails to set it up as a joke so the two of them just end up feeling embarrassed instead of jokingly fighting as they always do. Where you not complaining about her weird mania just a while ago? These events remind Futaba that she in fact has to buy some…

Femianne keeps trying to spam air punches, but the repetitive attacks give Inaho most of the information he needs to defeat her Hellas.  Although the hands can harden into a single giant molecule, the moment the fingers move they also revert back to their typical composition.  This makes it fairly simple to destroy all the hands, although Inaho hops a ride on the Sky Carrier just to really piss Yuki off. When fighting such a lame trash mob, it’s pretty easy to lose focus, so when one of the Hellas hands…

  • The Trap Door: Once More Unto the Breach – Arcadia of My Youth (1988)

    25 Aug 2014 | 9:27 am
    One of those guilty pleasures I have as I turn into an old fart is the standalone, unexplainable anime film. Leiji Matsumoto understands that. Why else would he have created such an amazing character in Space Pirate Captain Phantom F. Harlock? In a franchise that rewards itself with reinventing itself, Matsumoto, in handing over directing duties to Tomoharu Katsumata and writing to Yōichi Onaka, helped create what I feel is THE definitive Harlock story: Arcadia of My Youth. Set in the far future, when Earth and its Solar Federation has been established and settled, Space Corp's…
  • Otakon 2014: Hidenori Matsubara Discusses Character Design and Anime Shower Scenes

    18 Aug 2014 | 5:00 am
    Last weekend we had the privilege of speaking with veteran Japanese animator and character designer Hidenori Matsubara. You may know him from his work as a character designer on Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo, Ah! My Goddess, and Sakura Wars, but he has also worked as a key animator and animation director on series like Evangelion, Bubblegum Crisis, and Perfect Blue. He's also part of the team developing director Sunao Katabuchi's new film at studio MAPPA, In This Corner of the World (we've got more on that film in our upcoming con coverage).

  • Snapshot: Pregnant with Anime (Short Peace)

    15 Aug 2014 | 5:00 am
    "Opening," the first of five short animations comprising the Short Peace DVD/BD, has a running time of just three minutes, and yet I watched it continuously for near an hour and a half on repeat. In addition to getting lost in its engrossing mix of strange, beautiful art styles and animation, my awe was arrested at the climax upon recognizing the plot as a conceptual extension of the classic invocation of the muse. Whereas the typical invocation usually consists of a poet calling to the goddesses of creativity for their inspiration or aid in telling a tale, this introductory…

  • Drunken Otaku: Mi Cervesa es Su Cabeza (Natsuyuki Rendezvous)

    1 Aug 2014 | 9:00 am
    Nothing is more responsible for directing men and women to the bottle than love. In its name, alcohol is used—day in and day out—by the desperate for courage, by the libidinous to lubricate their carnal affairs, by happy couples for celebration and relaxation, by separate halves of frustrated pairs for mental escape, and by those who find themselves either recently or perpetually single for solace. But how often has alcohol been used by someone to sedate their warm body and anesthetize their reigning consciousness as to invite possession by a ghost who was also a romantic rival?

    Video game and anime music have long struggled to find a place within the realms of what is considered “serious” music and Eru Matsumoto probably realizes this more than most. As the principal cellist for the rePlay Symphony of Heroes video game concert at Anime Expo as well as a soloist who performed selections from Sword Art Online, Eru Matsumoto was careful to affirm her love for classical music, but also stress that music, in all its forms, should serve to connect with the audience.

Everyone raves over how it serves some of the most mouthwateringly scrumptious bacon that you’ll ever taste, prepared in all manners, shapes, and sizes. Now, imagine that you’ve decided to try its delicious fare and step in. But wait! You have to eat a bowl of uncooked tofu before you’re allowed to try any of the bacon. You’re right to be annoyed by this turn of events, but you grimly soldier on, determined to get to the bacon.
