Here recently, the Fanfiction Mailing List, also known as the FFML, has opened its doors to pretty much all animation, sci fi, and fantasy stories, noting that their writers for Ranma and Sailor Moon have pretty much dried up and gone on to bigger and better things. A new website is also in the works, and I for one say about damn time.
I've added a preview of the Bandai Visual series Rescue Wings, a look at the lives of those who risk their lives to save others. This isn't your usual anime series folks, as I mention in the preview. Grab your flight suit and buckle in, because it's harsh weather all the way to the rescue site!
Also, David is at AnimeExpo 2006 this weekend, so look forward to his report on the events at the West Coast's biggest anime convention - to say nothing of some awesome CosPlay!
Today we have what is an oddity of anime story telling in that despite the best efforts of the production staff to completely screw it up, the story and characters shine through proving how powerful the source material must have been. So without further ado, may I present to you: Fate: Stay/Night.
This week it's a double dose look at anime, with the Witchblade preview and the Karin review. Witchblade is an all-new anime retelling of the popular American comic book series of the same name, produced by GONZO. Karin tells the tale of an embarrassed young girl trying to deal with the meanings of happiness and vampirism. Might wanna wear a splash guard folks, the blood's hard to scrub out.
Whilst walking through Fanime bright and cheery, I stumbled across a fangirl lovely and pretty. Her boyfriend hovered o'er her dark and blearly, from the bounds of hell, did he seem quite leary, of the fanboy attention she did receive. Pausing not to wonder why my meter is now askew, epiphany struck like morning dew. So here are my words to give it definition; dear brave souls, we have become transcendant in our mission.
Now that the site upgrades are completed, I've added my first Dragon's Den column article, on the recent Eroge Anime trend that has been seen over the last six years. Bear in mind that much of this is my own opinion, much the same as David's Rantings of a Demented Little Man are his, but I've tried to be as factual as possible in order to give you a good picture of the trend. Enjoy!
