Anime Expo 2015 HD Movie Torrent Now Up

Well, it's been awhile coming, but I now have torrent, hosted by Nyaa, of all the Anime Expo 2015 movies that were recorded for those who like their files on their computer in HD. It should be noted that the Midnight Shinigami concert and Myth - Legends of Burlesque and Magic were encoded in x265, so you'll need a player capable of that. VLC can do this job with the right plugin, for example. You can get it by clicking this link here. Enjoy!

Anime Expo 2015 Report Now Up

So, somehow or another I managed to compile this report of Anime Expo 2015. I honestly wish it'd had been nothing but fun fun fun, and that I could relegate to you the awsomeness that I was part of, but I can't really do that this time around. That being said, there WAS fun, and it was damn good fun. Still, there was some shit that went down behind the scenes of this one, and if you want to know, click on that link up there to check it out. As for me, I still need to get those torrents up. Enjoy!

Anime Expo 2015 Report

I find it to be a most interesting feeling to know when I'm almost done with something. I can't really describe it to anyone, but a sinking anticipation is the best I can give. Like a countdown to something unknowable that you cannot stop...and at some point, you're not even sure you want to. Anime Expo is rapidly reaching the point where it may have to be put paid, or it may have already reached that point...the next few months will tell me that. I get ahead of myself, however.


As it has been the past few years, and for the next five years at least (since they've signed a new contract with the venue), Anime Expo has taken place at the Los Angeles Convention Center and surrounding venues. This year it played host to over 90,000 attendees, which is an unreal amount of people, and one I truly believe if trying to get through its dealer's hall was any indication of those numbers. I'm reminded a great deal of the final couple of years I went to Comic Con, what I experienced there, and how it felt. Very much like now, to be honest. Up to and including the way you could almost not even move in some places there were so many.


Well, it's taken some doing...a lot more than I would have imagined, but if the tech didn't look so good, I'd probably not have bothered. That being said, for all you streaming video lovers, we have the FAKKU Presents: Bosshi and Toshio Maeda Q&A Panel, the FAKKU Presents: Hentai Manga & Doujinshi, and the Midnight Shinigami concert from Anime Expo 2015. From the FAKKU panel, Bosshi is a fine H manga artist who drew such fun little stories like Peachy Butt Girls and Onee 30 and Toshio Maeda, a truly funny and irreverant dude, who created such classics as Urotsukidouji and La Blue Girl. I highly recommend that one. And for FAKKU's upcoming projects you can check out their Hentai Manga and Doujinshi panel; there's some surprising stuff in there, and if you're interested in FAKKU's business, there you'll find more. Viewer discretion is very much advised for obvious reasons. Finally, we have Midnight Shinigami, an anime cover band that's been a pretty common appearance at AX and other venues over the years, and always very good. Also the first victim of my new x265 video encoding...personally, I think that went pretty well. Click Read More, and you can view them all. Enjoy!
