    There are some cartoon conspiracies that make sense, and then there is the Disney Recess Ghosts Theory. While anything is plausible in fiction, the tenants of the conspiracy make sense and seem too over the top for a Disney cartoon to be true. In fact, the theory sounds like one of those joke comment threads you find The post Ghosts on a Disney Recess? appeared first on Toon Radio.

    On Friday during a Nintendo Direct Presentation in Japan, Nintendo announced a brand new 3DS called “New 3DS”. While not an entirely new system, this update adds a few new features, as well as some under the hood improvements. It will be available in both normal and XL size. On the outside, the new system has a few new buttons on it, including two extra shoulder buttons (ZR and ZL like on the Classic Console Controllers). Also, the colors of each of the four face buttons have changed to look like the old Super Famicom controller (Y is Green, X is Blue, B is Yellow and A is Red).

    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…

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 /…

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

    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…

    "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…

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. In my conversation with cellist Eru Matsumoto at Anime Expo, the theme of “forging…

    Imagine, for a moment, that you’re going to this hypothetical restaurant called the House of Bacon that is the talk of the town. 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.
