    Posted the character profile of Russell (from Black Lagoon). Changed the HTML for galleries, finally using DIV tags instead of TABLE tags for layout. I also removed all other TABLE tags being used for layout. That's something I've been meaning to do for years but just never got around to it. Also, thumbnails for images containing adult content in image galleries are now censored differently as I switched to using PHP to generate the thumbnails automatically. I intend to do the same thing for non-gallery thumbnails when I get the time.

  • Matchlock Samurai Manga/Model Kit – Miyazaki Hayao

    26 Jul 2015 | 10:59 am
    Matchlock Samurai Hiruko Hachirota ( 鉄炮侍 蛭子八郎太 ) is an-going manga project by Miyazaki Hayao for the Japanese magazine Model Graphix. The story is based on the matchlock cavalry samurais that fought during the Kanto battles in the 1560s. Apparently Miyazaki-san has been very busy with his Ghibli Museum anime short and had little time to complete this manga, so the current status can be considered “on-going”, or on hiatus, although the model kit based on the lead character is already available of purchase. Hopefully the completed manga will see the light of day, but…
  • La Madonna – Takada Akemi Art Book Review

    21 Jul 2015 | 9:14 pm
    La Madonna is a splendid collection of character illustrations from the immensely popular 80s anime Kimagure Orange Road. The artist behind the illustrations is Takada Akemi, who is also the character designer for the Patlabor anime series. The illustrations include those used for CD, laserdisc jackets, dvd box covers, posters and more. Quite a few of these ( including the top image above ) I remember vividly as an impressionable kid growing up with anime. Flipping through the book I seem to see some visual affinity in the illustration style of Takada-san and the Taiwanese artist Pinfan…

    Out Of The Forest : The Art Of Paul Bonner collects some 150 illustrations by the artist spanning over 25 years with art work from Games Workshop, Mutant Chronicles, Fasa, Riot Minds and Rackham. I love the very 3 dimensional quality and feel of Paul Bonner’s work ( executed in water color ) and the superb, highly detailed renders of every piece really transport me into distant, fantasy worlds. And I love hulking monsters and dragons with endless rows of sharp teeth, so that’s an additional bonus. This is an easy recommendation for fans of high quality fantasy art, with a strong…

    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:…

    The Fuji TV on Demand service has announced that its original supernatural suspense anime series Osiris no Tenbin (Balance of Osiris) will premiere at midnight this Saturday. The teaser trailer is officially restricted to viewers located in Japan, perhaps to avoid revealing to the entire world how hideous the show looks. Granted, the story concept about a physically weak professional assassin who relies on his psychokinetic power sounds intriguing. But the awful CG rendered character designs and the even worse animation quality featured in the teaser trailer really make the show look…
  • Interesting Scene in Oi! Ryouma

    28 Jul 2015 | 7:00 am
    While watching the first episode of the 1992 historical drama anime Oi! Ryouma, I was struck by a particular scene that occurred in the middle of the episode. As seven-year-old Sakamoto Ryouma is bullied and extorted by a pair of local boys, his sister Otome comes to his rescue. After beating up the two bullies, Otome orders Ryouma to use his privilege as a samurai and execute the boys for having insulted his and his sister’s honor, a historical samurai precept known as “Kiri-sute gomen.” Historically “Kiri-sute gomen” was not performed very frequently, but…

  • 'Digimon Adventure Tri' Gets a DVD/Blu-ray Release

    1 Aug 2015 | 6:25 am
    So we know that the next installment in the Digimon series will be divided into six film. I will say that this had me so worried. No offense to the old moves in the franchise but each arc was extremely short for my taste. I had big concerns that whatever was going to be released this time around was going to be something of the same. Fortunately, this is not the case. The film will run a total of 80 minutes. That for me is still too short but we need to take our victories where we can! That’s a solid 1:20 minute film. That is the equivalent of about FOUR episodes. So, the six films…

    So as you may have noticed, I’ve been somewhat lax with my posting of Gangsta episodes.  To be honest, the last two episodes have been pretty ho-hum in my opinion.  However this one deserved a little more attention, and so here I am. We begin in the interrogation room of the Ergastalum City Police department, where Nicolas and Worick sit, unhappy with their current situation.  Chad has just hauled them in due to some strange murders that have been going on.  Apparently a bunch of dead bodies had been found that had distinct cuts, similar to those made with a sword.  Nicolas’…

The party comes to confront him during training and ends up challenging his team to a baseball game.

Poke. After the two leaders and their troops stop to take a break and celebrate the new year, Rajendra pulls aside Arslan to ask him for a favor.  It seems he has a plan of attack against Gadevi, and he wants Arslan’s approval.

  • Going to Otakon 2015? So Are We!

    21 Jul 2015 | 5:00 pm
    If you're going to Otakon this weekend, keep an eye out for Ink and me as we scurry around the massive Baltimore convention trying to balance the giant schedule of excellent panels with our own events and a series of guest interviews. This year, Ink and I have five panels between the two of us: Beyond Miyazaki: The Directors of Studio Ghibli (Friday, 10:15–11:15am in Panel 2): My panel reminding fans that there are directors OTHER than Hayao Miyazaki at Studio Ghibli, and they've made some pretty cool movies.

  • AnimeNEXT 2015: The Panels

    19 Jul 2015 | 9:04 am
    As we discussed in our three-way con report, AnimeNEXT has really been stepping up their panel game lately. In this post, Ink, David, and Evan run through their favorite (and LEAST favorite) panels from fans and guests alike at the New Jersey anime convention. Symbolic Shorthand: an Introduction to the Importance of Folktales This panel centered around allusions to folktales sporadically appearing in anime and the morals said references were intended to bring to the minds of a Japanese audience when thusly invoked. It would’ve been easy to roll Folktales from Japan for an hour, but the…

  • Wagakki Band’s Traditional-Modern Musical Blend Showcased in Anime Expo Concert

    29 Jul 2015 | 8:44 am
    The concept of blending traditional instruments and sounds with modern musical genres isn’t a new concept; one need only look at examples like the Yoshida Brothers rocking out on shamisen to see it done well. Wagakki Band takes that musical fusion to a new level through its sheer size: a group of 8 musicians including shigin singer Yuuko Suzuhana, Machiya on guitar, Beni Ninagawa on shamisen, Kiyoshi Ibukuro working the koto, Asa on bass, the energetic Daisuke Kaminaga playing the shakuhachi (Japanese recorder/flute), and Wasabi and Kurona on drums. Their hopes, spelled out during their…
  • Anime Music on the AIRS Ep. 8 – Travel Music

    21 Jul 2015 | 8:35 am
    As usual, we’d like to have the Anime Music on the AIRS radio show have themes that make some modicum of sense. Last time, we had a summer-riffic blast. Now, we turn to anime music that captures travel: whether it’s something like a full-fledged adventure, merely wandering about, short, but fast excursions, or whatever else strikes up your fancy. While there are some heavy tracks within, most are lighter fare. But then again, traveling is supposed to be exciting and fun!

  • IA’s Vocaloid Concert at Anime Expo Makes a Strong Case for Virtual Idols

    8 Jul 2015 | 8:39 am
    It’s been 4 years since Anime Expo attendees have been treated to the Vocaloid concert that was Mikunopolis. In that time, 1st Place Co. introduced a new Vocaloid named IA to the Vocaloid3 engine using the voice of one of my favorite J-pop artists: Lia, the vocalist behind such works as Clannad ~After Story~‘s “Toki wo Kizamu Uta” and Angel Beats‘ “My Soul, Your Beats”. Given my interest in Lia as an artist, you’d think this development would spur me to check out the Vocaloid scene in greater depth, but my interest in the Vocaloid scene never…
  • Anime Music on the AIRS Ep. 7 – Summer Music

    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.

    Remember Satoru Iwata By Jack Dalton Allistar View image | On July 11th, 2015, the gaming industry lost a figurehead as unique as the company he led. Satoru Iwata, global President of Nintendo from the Gamecube era to Wii U, died from complications of a bile duct growth. Iwata’s legacy began even before his presidency at Nintendo. The 1982 graduate of the Tokyo Institute of Technology had a high school career filled with programming simple games for business calculators. In 1983, he joined Hal Laboratory, which is most famously known for developing the Kirby series. In his…

Budding anime fans like myself are hit with a one two punch of awesome titles involving a nod to the old west with a sci-fi kick. One of those titles is the venerated Cowboy Bebop.   The other is Trigun. These titles are what made me really stick with anime as both a great choice in entertainment but as a hobby. They were two series with a mindset of maturity along with a great deal of humor and heart that is a rare find today indeed. Through the waxy mirror of time we look back on the anime we know and…

    There are few occassions in life when it would be okay to crap one's pants in excitement. For me, this was one of them. There is a new Digimon season on the way. Check out the character design which is quite a bit different. They are bringing back the original Digi-destined (those who matter know what this means), which is great. What I am most excited about is the people who will be creating this new season, most notably Cencoroll's Atsuya Uki on character designs. If you're anything like me, the last few seasons of this franchise left you somewhat disappointed.

  • Witch Hunt First Impression

    31 Jul 2015 | 5:24 pm
    With a rather slow start, with some romantic elements, this manhwa turns into a wild adventure with demons and witches. Yay for no witch burning. Story: Yes it is indeed a story about witches, may be a bit cliché, unless it’s not those kind of witches with huge personalities. We do have the stereotypical heroes, weak mc and strong mc. The weak mc is a mere human with a bad habit, he is a sneaky little thief who constantly gets himself into trouble. On the other hand we have this crazy strong cold type of witch that could do a lot of damage to…anything I guess. The witch is good…

    Another “I just want to make friends because I am unbelievable strong” kind of manga adventure. It’s fun don’t worry, I guess. Story: Classic academy of future heroes with the strongest girl of the class owning a cursed sword and the main character joining as a transfer student in the school where transfer students are not really allowed. You know the drill. He is too strong but wants to make friends, kind of quirky guy who is always cheerful and seems so dense but I ain’t gonna tell him how to live after he blew up that building the second day he was there.

Cute story, but really is the generic love stories found in most of the mangas of this genre. The difference maker is how we see the story from both the guy and the girls perspective and how the…
