Hmm...how to describe GATE. Basically, it's how many of us wish we could enter a fantasy world...armed to the teeth with modern weapons so we can just shoot the son of a bitch and hear the lamentations of their women. There's more to it than that, and despite some pretty glaring flaws, I found it to be pretty entertaining. Still, for the full analysis, check out the review, if you want to know what I'm really talking about. Also, a goth loli demigoddess who gets off on the pain, suffering, and death of her enemies! Enjoy!
In modern Japan, a gate suddenly appears in down town Ginza, and suddenly bursting forth from it...invaders! But not, your typical super powered alien invaders with science so advanced as to be indistinguishable from magic, running roughshod over everyone and everything, racking up a fucking body count so high that your average mujahid gets cock envy, until finally some plucky kid in a biotechnic robot suit does what professional soldiers cannot, and beats them back, oh no. No, instead, the doom that befalls us this time are...Romans. Yup, Romans. Needless to say, after the initial shock and awe wears off, with a few hundred people dead, the swat teams and SDF, with modern weapons and modern military tactics turn them back relatively easily. Still, that leaves the question of just what the fuck the gate is, why it appeared, the fuck were the people on the other side thinking attacking without intel or a plan, and so on and so forth. Aside from the international repercussions of a dimensional incursion, it's up to what amounts to Japan's armed forces, the SDF, to head to the other side and deal with whatever is there.

And here we have the online vimeo movie of Day 2 of Anison USA February 2016's performance. This was more of a concert setting taking place within the Bootleg Theatre located in Los Angeles. While it did start nearly two hours late, we did manage to get everything done, including the autographs at the end (though that in a very compressed manner). It's at times like this I wish I had some sort of platform for myself and the camera tripod to stand on, but I think I got everthing that needed to be gotten. Admittedly I had to quit trying to pull double duty as a photographer about half way through the event if I wanted the camera to stay on the performers to any reasonable degree, so I didn't get as much of that as I'd have liked. There was also the one tall dude who somehow always meandered into my shot, no matter where I replaced the tripod...it was surreal since he wasn't even doing it on purpose. Still, it was a lot of fun, as you'll see by clicking either on the article title itself or the more button below.
About a week ago I attended an event called Anison (short for Anime Song) USA. Apparently in their second year, it showcases various J-pop or J-pop inspired artists performing for their fans over here. This year included the talents of Ayu, Nozomi, Vandead Bakery, Roli Angel, Ally and Sally (, Momoi Halko, and Yumi Matsuzawa. Day one actually took place at a little anime store in Temple City, CA called Desu-nation. Aside from having to find a place to film, shooing people out of the way occasionally, and dealing with my camera being bumped and even knocked over once, it was an interesting and fairly decent event. Long Beach Comic Con was going on that weekend as well, but to be honest, the larger events are beginning to really piss me off considering what happens after a time with every convention once it reaches a certain critical mass in its membership. The smaller gatherings are beginning to be a lot more rewarding artistically, since you can actuallY BE artistic both in terms of covering them and for those performing in them for a receptive audience. So, click on the jump and you can check out day one of Anison USA's video. Day two, taking place at the Bootleg Theatre in L.A. and its pictures should be up sometime this week as well. Enjoy!
