S.F’.s Annual Japanese Pop Culture Fest Presents J-POP LIVE NIGHT II Concert Performances At Fort Mason By DJ KEN ISHII, ANAMANAGUCHI, YANAKIKU, LITTLE GLEE MONSTER And More!

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!

Los Angeles, CA, July 6, 2015 – The just-concluded 24th Annual Anime Expo (AX), presented by The Society for the Promotion of Japanese Animation (SPJA), played host to over 90,500 lovers of Japanese animation and pop culture, July 2-5, 2015, at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Sneaking up in attendance right behind Comic-Con, this year’s show marked the biggest presentation in its history, taking every inch of the Los Angeles Convention Center for the first time.
Finally getting some of these movies encoded. I'll need to upgrade big time when I get a 4K camera. In any event, check out this year's Myth: Legends of Burlesque and Magic; performed at Anime Expo. For the third year it came, and for the second year was its own Main Event, and a well deserved designation it is. Don't know that I've ever seen anything gain popularity quite so fast or so deservedly as this show. But why take my word for it, when you can click 'Read More' and see it for yourself on our Vimeo channel? For those of you that like your really high quality digital copies of videos on your hard drives, don't worry...as soon as I get all this year's videos encoded, I'll do what I've done for the past few years, and load them all up as one big batch. Until then...enjoy!
