    Today we spend a day out n about the Hakone [箱根[はこね]] area where we get to enjoy views of Mount Fuji while exploring Nihondaira, Owakudani and Lake Ashinoko. Photos taken as usual on the Sony RX100 III and RX1 - both are incredible cameras. Sony used to get on my nut after using their horrid Vaio series but then I started to get back into Sony products after filming Culture Japan TV - the exmor sensors perform really well in low light. Anyway, these photos are all 1920 x 1080 so they may make a decent wallpaper for some of you. First photo is taken at Nihondaira which we will talk…

    A set of character posters have just been released for the life-action film adaptation of Isayama Hajime’s cult hit manga Attack On Titans ( Shingeki No Kyojin ). The costumes and weapons look pretty faithful to the original designs from the manga and anime, but I’m not sure if l like the tacky lens flares. (above) Mikasa, a hot favourite among Shingeki fans is played by actress Mizuhara Kiko – check out this pictorial of hers photographed by Sakuran director Ninagawa Mika. I’m usually against the idea of Japanese originals been turned into international remakes but…

  • [Blue Hawaii] Calabash Family

    10 Nov 2014 | 10:06 am
    Blue Hawaii, as printed in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser on Sunday, November 9th! Not sure if "calabash" is just a term we use here in Hawaii, but it describes folks we consider "close enough to be family," although there's no relation. Let's just call this Simon's extended family. :D Meanwhile "luau stew" is basically a stew made of all the stuff that usually goes into laulau. It looks like green goo, but I find it pretty tasty with rice and a little chili pepper water. Kinda spinach-like. Heeia Pier makes a great one. If you're ever in the area, maybe give it a try. ★

    Its been a while since we last took a look at Akihabara in the Akihabara Shops category. These photos were taken back in August but I didn't have the time to stick it up until now >< This is however the first Akihabara Shops post that uses the latest HD photo template which means all the photos are in full HD at 1920px x 1080px so they should make decent wallpaper for many of you. This does also mean however that loading times will probably take longer so what I'm thinking of doing is having two templates available depending on your preference settings - a HD template and the normal…

  • My First Visit To Japan

    20 Oct 2014 | 2:54 am
    Born and raised in the UK, I fell in love with Japan towards the end of the eighties and discovered a culture that was to change my life forever. My first contact with Japanese culture was through anime (specifically Macross) and games (specifically Strider for the Mega Drive). I started to self study Japanese and as I was doing so discovered that Japan was not just about anime and games but was also a rich culture that had so much to explore and learn. I saved up enough money through my part time jobs which enabled me to visit Japan every year in the Summer to absorb the culture - each visit…

    HYPERWEAPON 2014 – Road To Varellous is a collection of illustrations and model craft work by renowned mecha designer/illustrator Kobayashi Makoto. His long list of credits include Space Battleship Yamato, Venus Wars, Mobile Suit Z Gundam, Last Exile and many more. I first introduced this art book in one of my digest posts. HYPERWEAPON is actually one of his earliest works and this book contains material from old publications that are out of print.

  • Mushime To Anime – Miyazaki Hayao Book Review

    17 Nov 2014 | 4:57 am
    Mushime To Anime (虫眼とアニ眼) is a collaborative book effort by renowned anime director Miyazaki Hayao and novelist Yoro Takeshi. The title is a wordplay on the Kanji character for “eyes” ( a reference to the 2 authors who are visionaries in their respective fields ), and the book is a transcript of the conversation between Miyazaki and Yoro as they use two Ghibli films ( Princess Mononoke & Spirited Away ) as a springboard to discuss environmental and ecology issues, as well as Man’s ability to co-exist with nature. The topics covered will no doubt be an…

    Through A Looking Glass is a collection of quaint fantasy illustrations by the artist Wayne Anderson, covering the first 25 years of his work. He is most well known for the illustrations and designs for the popular fantasy book and animated film The Flight Of Dragons. Wayne Anderson was trained as a graphic designer and works primarily using a combination of crayon and pencils. As times the style of his illustrations remind me the work of the late Maurice Sendak ( Where The Wild Things Are ).

  • Ask John: How Does One License Anime?

    19 Nov 2014 | 6:15 am
    Question: I was wondering how does one license anime titles? Answer: The American anime distribution industry is notorious for keeping its corporate secrets very private. Given the relative insularity of the industry and the fact that sharing corporate secrets can have a significant, appreciable impact on not only companies but even individual employees’ livelihood, the tendency to keep secrets within tight-lipped company is understandable. Somewhat ironically, even though I was personally involved in multiple anime title licensing negotiations when I worked with AN Entertainment,…

Do they just have a “gawkers at a train wreck” mentality to them? And why on earth would someone go to the trouble of animating something so incredibly foul, rancid, immoral and disgusting? Answer: With the exception of people of unusually optimistic and personable character, all humans periodically feel jilted, angry, morose, or vindictive. Normal, socially responsible individuals cope…
  • Ask John: What’s the Most Disgusting Hentai Anime Ever?

    11 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    Question: What’s the freakiest, nastiest, most disguising hentai of all time? Answer: I haven’t watched every adult anime ever produced, but I have sampled enough of them to be able to identify a reasonably comprehensive selection of the most shockingly grotesque and upsetting erotic anime ever. The candidates fall into two categories. A pair of early adult anime is particularly noteworthy for their intensely cynical tone. The more contemporary examples merit recognition for their practically unconscionable excess. Readers beware. From here on in, this article will get graphic and…

    Kaori looks cute and funny with that shirt but I bet it would look as weird on Kousei Summary: After jumping to the river, Kousei takes Kaori to his place so that she can dry herself and her clothes. She finds by chance the dust-covered piano and begins cleaning it out of impulse, but then stops to cry and apologize a little to Kousei. Afterwards, Tsubaki catches them trough the window and gets seriously mad. Since Kousei will be entering a piano competition shortly (thanks to Kaori registering him) he begins practicing daily. However, he sucks so Kaori is sticking around to help him learn to…

She tells them that this is the first time she has collapsed in this way but that she has always been a little anemic so her father decided to admit her and get her checked just in case. She then playfully blames Kousei for the extra stress and work that where probably partly responsible; skillfully shifting the focus of the conversation to him. As they leave, Kaori stops Kousei to check if he has been playing piano. With his negative…

However Kancolle can be pretty intimidating to people who haven’t immersed themselves in it. There are currently 145 Shipgirls (Kantai Musume or Kanmusu, if you prefer the Japanese terms), which is about a hundred and twenty more than most people would probably feel is reasonable.

He is extremely unprepared and he knows that he will probably stop listening to the notes so he keeps reading the score frantically. Kaori, on the other hand, is more worried about how her new dress looks and gets annoyed by her partner who keeps ignoring her. She head-butts him back into feet and tells him some soft words to help him relax. A man away from home need feel no shame. Let’s go out there and shame ourselves like crazy! “This girl is…

    15 Nov 2014 | 8:00 am
    The world of Your Lie in April promises one simple but very effective premise—a balance of color and lack thereof as measurement of an individual’s passion. According to the series, the surrounding world blossoms with color when viewed through the eyes of someone in love. Without that spark of infatuation—betrayed by a particular twinkle in the beholder’s eyes reflective of enchantment with something or someone—every garden, every mosaic, every sunset is but different depths of black and white. While the show doesn’t exploit this notion nearly enough, there…

  • The Trap Door: I Put Coins In and Stupid Fell Out – Sword For Truth (1990)

    25 Oct 2014 | 5:00 am
    You invest yourself in a lot of media based on what you read or see beforehand. "Oh, this film will be great because my favorite actor is in it." "This game will be amazing because this studio made it." Now, if you’ve ever liked Johnny Depp, you know Dark Shadows isn’t his greatest film. Likewise, you're well aware that 343 Industries is responsible for Halo Wars. So your wishes for a film/book/game/TV show don’t amount to a hill of beans in this world. So it is with me and Sword For Truth, a samurai adventure in which nobody acts like a samurai except the ones who end up…
  • KITE vs. KITE: The nurtured natures of revenge

    23 Oct 2014 | 11:30 am
    Spoiler Warning: The following feature compares and contrasts various aspects of the 1998 anime and the 2014 live action film. Spoilers regarding both will be abundant. Despite all the anime titles fans actually want to see get live action adaptations, we get KITE. Actually that does make a good deal of sense. Yasuomi Umetsu’s 1998 OVA focuses on a corrupt cop carrying out his hypocritical vigilantism via two youths he “adopts” and trains for use as his own gloved gun hands. Since the story takes place in a pretty normal city spiced up but by relatively simple pyrotechnics…

  • Music Notes: Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso – Episode 1

    Christopher Nguyen
    28 Oct 2014 | 3:33 am
    Prologue: After Nodame Cantabile, you’d have to forgive me for believing no other anime would attempt using classical music as the backbone for a romantic comedy. But with this Fall season, we have Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, which has sufficiently impressed me with that very approach, imparting a level of enthusiasm that I haven’t felt since watching Nodame. Classical music to make a match in heaven? While the two main characters, Kousei Arima and Kaori Miyazono, aren’t even close to being a mature, compelling couple (they’re middle school students after all), the…
  • A Young Music Lover’s Experience at Comiket

    Comiket, for those who don’t know, is the largest convention for self-published and produced works in the world. Spanning three days, it is an enormous marketplace held in the Tokyo Big Sight convention center where people sell mainly art and crafts either inspired by anime or in the anime style. Among the goods being sold are tons of CDs produced by a thriving doujin music community. Of course, being in Japan over the summer, I made it part of my plans to check it out. While I couldn’t attend the first day because I was stuck in a cubicle, I did join up with some friends in the area for…

    Dean Talks Anime: Excel Saga and the Common Language of Humor A review/opinion piece by Christopher Kinsey [“Go My forced perspective action figures! Go!”] Drama is easy, comedy is hard. Someone said that once, and it’s only half true. Humor is only hard when you overthink it and add layers of complexity. Humor is extra hard when there is a cultural barrier. My favorite anecdote on this subject came from the great Japanese game translation house known as Working Designs. “It was always a challenge when translating the jokes in the game [Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete].

    This would have to be one of the coolest things we've done. Collaborating with Crunchyroll was an idea inspired by my admiration of Street wear brands. To be honest, I don't buy from street wear brands. But I definitely admire how the culture is strongly interlocked with the brands that subscribe to it. Street wear is truly one of the most innovative subset of fashion when it comes to branding. A big thing in street wear culture is when two brands collaborate on a product. Something about that union always ends up making both brands more appealing. When brands like Bape and Stussy…

    For the second edition of the SG Chronicle, we bring you news that will bring about a hint of nostalgia and a whole load of reminiscing if you were born in the 80’s or 90’s. I’ve collected a whole bunch of stories from around the news and internet this week that I found a particular interest to. If I found the interesting, there’s a huge chance you would also feel the same.   HEADLINE ARTICLES:   THE HOVERBOARD HAS ARRIVED! This is not a hoax, I repeat this is not a hoax, despite the fact Tony Hawk is once again involved. There was only one thing, the kids of the 80’s and…
  • A Touch of Inspiration…

    19 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    How does one find inspiration? The kind that drives singers to write epic ballads, That tortures musicians in the dark hours of the night to compose symphonies, The kind that causes writers to pen the stories that shape our childhood, The ones that continue to echo throughout the ages, long after we are gone. Is it a madness that drives us? An all-consuming desire, That once it takes hold, devours us with its fires, The flame that burns, even when the rain is all we can feel on our skin, The coals that sear, even when the cold of humanity has pierced deep within our souls. What is…

    PARASYTE –MAXIM- Kiseijū Sei no Kakuritsu So episode five already… I’m quite surprised how into this anime I am. Not a moment of boredom.

  • FIFA Team of the Week – International Duty

    17 Nov 2014 | 10:13 am
    FIFA Team of the Week – International Duty No premier league this week means only one thing. International Duty. I’ve taken some time out to watch some of the more interesting clashes and here are my 11. Arlauskis had a fantastic game against the Swiss. Some unbelievable saves. The own goal really marred his contribution, Looks as though he isn’t on FUT. Will we see him next year in one of the bigger leagues? Juanfran terrorised the right side of the pitch. Making very  decisive runs and assisting twice in Spain’s 3-0 victory against Belarus. Paul Papp scored two…

  • Great Sapporo Commercials #01

    18 Nov 2014 | 7:51 pm
    Recently, I happened to recall a great series of commercials I had once seen many years ago on KTSF Channel 26, which is an Asian broadcast TV station in San Francisco, California. The commercials were created for the Sapporo Breweries Limited, but they didn't really focus on their beer products. What made these commercials really cool was the slow motion action, the expressions of the actors involved in competitive situations and the unique situational comedy. read more

  • How to Draw Anime Girl Profile -Basic Approach

    Naomi Husband
    13 Oct 2014 | 6:36 pm
    There are many ways to draw an anime girl on profile. For this post, I decided for a more basic approach (Using a circle and a square as guide lines). I usually do it another way and I might actually do another post for that. Draw a circle. -when starting to draw keep in mind where your character will be in the background.                 Draw a square. -If your character is looking to the left, then place the square accordingly. Mine, for no particular reason, was looking right, so I placed the square at the bottom right side of the circle.  …

Before you start sketching, it would be helpful to know beforehand in you want to include people in your manga background.
