    (I introduced this book previously in one of my Digest posts.) Japanese publisher Tokuma Shoten’s “Roman Album” series for Ghibli’s animated films have always been abridged versions of the “Art Of” books, with a smaller collection of art work and more pages dedicated to interviews and text articles. This is markedly different for The Wind Rises (Kaze Tachinu) Roman Album Extra, which running at 285 pages covers serves up a huge collection of beautifully drawn layout boards and genga pieces, as well as character sheets and technical “making of”…

    Blue Hawaii, as printed in the Sunday Star-Advertiser on April 13th! Admittedly, it's a little early for Easter, but since I don't get that weekend, I figured I should run with the idea I came up with a week early. XD It seems that the office switches out who plays the Easter Bunny yearly, so Gizmo is it this year. It only seemed logical that he'd hide it somewhere "safe". :D

I tallied up all the numbers and here's how we fared in the month of March: We earned a total of $816 through donations, membership subscriptions, digital goods sales, and Amazon affiliate sales -- which is amazing~! There were a few digital book sales near the end of the month that helped to boost the numbers. :D Thanks so much for helping me finally earn a paycheck for the comic work that I've done for the past 8 years! ♥ I am working on the new wallpaper…

    A series of very tastefully and elegantly shot promos for Singapore Airlines, featuring the Singapore Girl. Great art direction, beautiful cinematography, and the soundtrack is excellent as well. The Singapore Girls ( dressed in their instantly recognizable costume Sarong Kebaya ) featured in the commercials are not actresses but real stewardesses serving on flights. The branding for Singapore Airlines (SIA) is one of the strongest I’ve seen for any Singaporean company, and this is remarkably matched by the quality of service provided by the airlines itself, unquestionably one of the…

    By TheBigN I’ve been enjoying the silly earnestness of HappinessCharge PreCure! in general. It’s not a show that will be winning much praise compared to its fellow compatriots anytime soon, from what I’ve seen others say (it’s only my second Precure I’m following, at that), but many concepts (Precure across the world, powers as your imagination takes you from what I’ve seen Cure Lovely do, etc.) are interesting to poke at, and I hope the show does that in its own time. The animation has been pretty consistent (not great, but no major problems for me) for…

    Teens ‘n’ Tentacles: You know where this is going Summary Jotaro, perhaps resigned to a life of watching his grandfather destroy Polaroid cameras, attempts to go on with life as normal — such as it is for him. See, he’s a bit of a punk. He’s rude to the ladies and his mother, he gets in fights and tends to destroy his opponents a bit too hard, and he’ll refuse to pay when he doesn’t like the food in a restaurant. However, he’s not a bad guy. At least, that’s how his story goes. He’s just a teenaged punk playing too cool for school who still acknowledges his mother…

  • Snapshot: Coming Down the Mountain (Kill la Kill)

    15 Apr 2014 | 5:01 pm
    I’ve made no secret of my distaste for 3-D animation in anime (known in the industry as "3DCGI" or "3DCG"). The vast majority of 3-D work in anime ranges from “passable amateur work” to “distractingly awful,” primarily because Japanese animators seem to either lack the time or the training to create believable character and camera motions in a 3-D space. That being said, there is a surprising amount of good 3DCG work going on in anime, though it’s primarily being done not with character or mech animation, but with the often forgotten anime art form:…

  • The Trap Door: A Boy And His Robot – Giant Robo: The Day The Earth Stood Still (1992)

    25 Mar 2014 | 7:13 pm
    Deep down, I worry about the anime industry. I can’t tell if it’s the influx of titles that seem to be about liking girls who are 14 or younger, or the fact that for a medium that has international roots, anime these days is more insular than ever.  In any event, there are points where I wonder how much lower things can go before I finally lose interest in this medium. When I feel like this, I watch something that makes me resolve my doubts. It’s my comfort food, it’s a tale of courage and villainy and it's fitting as the anniversary post for the Trap Door.

Akira Hiramoto’s Prison School is a comedy series that shows a good amount of emotional depth beneath its absurd display of sexual situations. The story goes as this: five boys are admitted to a high school that was previously an all-girls school. They become the center of attention and victimized for it.

The Bechdel test is a test based off an old comic strip used to measure the impact female characters have in fictional series. There are 3 criteria that define the test.

  • Attack on Titan Vol 11 Review

    16 Apr 2014 | 9:00 am
    Title: Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) Genre: Action, Horror Artist: Hajime Isayama Publisher: Kodansha (JP), Kodansha USA (US) Serialized in: Bessatsu Shonen Magazine Translation: Ko Ransom Original Release Date: January 28, 2014 If Hajime Isayama wants to end Attack on Titan in less than 20 volumes, we have a lot of ground to cover in very little time. Although there’s been plenty of surprising developments since Eren’s shocking “death” in the first volume, we still know relatively little about the Titans, where they came from, and what their goals are. Isayama hasn’t stopped…
  • Go for Broke: Outbreak Company

    Kuuki
    15 Apr 2014 | 7:06 pm
    The story of Outbreak Company is the typical kind of story to appeal to us, Japanese culture enthusiasts. It indeed follows Shinichi as he is appointed as the director of a company sponsored by the Japanese government and which goal is to spread otaku culture. In another dimension. As I said before this is the typical kind of shows aimed at otaku. This is the fantasy we all want to live: Shinichi is blessed with an unlimited amount of anime, he gets an awesome and busty live-in maid, who also happens to be an elf, his body-guard is also busty and wears a uniform, we even have a princess who…

    It’s exactly as you think, my hapless Hattori. Summary of Mahouka Koukou Rettousei Episode 2 In the previous episode we met the Shiba siblings and their classmates and gained a little bit insight into their lives inside and outside the school. The episode ended with an apparent showdown between First Course and Second Course students. Summary of Episode Two: the explosive situation is resolved thanks to Tatsuya and his attitude means he has the attention of the head of the Disciplinatory Committee. The Student Council President, Mayumi, asks Miyuki to join the Student Council according…

    Boomslank - News and Hearsay

  • Cencoroll 2

    Cencoroll 2 is coming! The first Cencoroll is a definite watch for anyone looking for some non generic anime. Generic anime to me is anime that has a predictable step. If you've seen enough anime, you'll know what I mean. Most anime kinda fall into one category or the other, where you kinda have an idea what types of characters you're dealing with. But anyway Cencoroll is really interesting and well animated (really important). The artwork is beautiful as well (I love flat colors!).
  • Artist Spotlight: Iris Chen

    Being still relatively young, Boomslank is still learning and growing a lot with every new endeavour. One of the things we have been fortunate to pick up is a stronger appreciation for artists, and the passion they put into their work. There aren’t many better places to see this on display than the artist alley. The alley is great not just because of the work that is on display, but also because of the fascinating individuals from whom’s mind those creations sprung. This past week I had the privilege of speaking with one such artist. I met Iris Chen, aka Deathful, at the 2013 Anime Expo…
  • Sketchbook Therapy

    Justin A
    27 Mar 2014 | 10:06 pm
    I've always enjoyed sketching. As an engineer I got into making my own mech designs (all of which I lost in a move). But lately, with life getting in the way I kinda fell off. Fast forward a few years and I have to say I have been inspired by my little brother to pick up the pencil again (also a little jealous of his skills). So I got a couple of sketchbooks!! Aside from being a good way to practice sketching, I have found it is also a good release, an outlet if you will. Sometimes when I think i'm having a rough day for one reason or another, I pull out the sketch book and draw whatever is…
  • Ronin

    So Ronin is our latest anime graphic t-shirt. This shirt is pretty special as its production was met with blood curdling setbacks. Ronin was ideally set to be released on late January. Unfortunately our printers had ran out of the custom tags that they normally stitch onto our shirts for that Boomslank brand experience. In retrospect it was my fault for not tracking this properly. As if I had tracked our hem-tag inventory, I would have re stocked in time for the Ronin. Anyway, having run out of tags, we went to our supplier out in Canada to get more tags, but our supplier was on vacation and…

    What happens a bunch of kids are stranded on a top secret space ship and forced to grow up real quick? Awesome things! Well not awesome for some of the characters in Infinite Ryvius (so many miserable kids), but awesome for anyone who watches this hidden marvel of anime genius. Infinite Ryvius tells the story of Kouji. a boy who would ideally avoid conflict, his brother Yuki who seems to welcome conflict, and his classmates who find themselves loitering through space in a powerful spaceship called the Ryvius. We get to watch as they try to build a functioning society within this ship, and…
