Summer 2008 Anime Preview

It's summer here in Minnesota, and that means that it's time for humidity, skeeters big enough to need runways to land - and oh yeah, the summer anime previews. There's fewer previews than usual this time around, but there are some big names coming to the small screen for this season. Already started is the third season of IkkiTousen: Great Guardians. The girls haven't found any sturdier clothing, either, so you know there's going to be plenty of eye candy bouncing all around. Blade of the Immortal, based on the long running manga of the same name, looks good, and I'll be interested to see if they manage to pull it off. Also making the leap is Sekirei, and IkkiTousen is going to have some competition in the jiggle meter from this one. But c'mon folks, don't just listen to me babble, take a look for yourself! As always, the page might take awhile to load, be patient. Don't forget too - this is hardly a complete list, just a small selection of the series due out this summer.

Fanime 2008 Pics Part 1

Well, finally got the first set of the pics for Fanime 08 up over at TFA Cosplay. Had to divide them up due to the fact my new camera resets its numbering scheme with every new memory card, heh. Going to have to go through them and the ACEN pics and comment on a few that had some stories behind them.

Browse freely and enjoy! Don't be afraid to here, either. CLOSED

Anime Central 2008 Report Part 1

Well, finally got the first half of the Anime Central report done. It's filled with fun, anecdotes, and the occasionally "What was I thinking?!" moment, as one so often finds themselves at cons.

Feel free to discuss or ask questions on the message board. CLOSED

Acen 2008

This article has been consolidated into one from its original two part format to allow for easier reading.

Anime Central 2008 was by far the absolute best convention I have ever been to.

Yes, that statement deserved its own paragraph. It was that good. Hell, it was fucking awesome…probably the most rewarding convention experience I’ve ever had. No, not quite as good as sex, but the feeling lasted far longer, heheh. I can’t say enough good things about it…I just wish I had the time to do everything I wanted to do. Outside of that, there’s really nothing I have bad to say about it.

Initially I wasn’t really planning on going to any other conventions outside of Fanime and AX until I was invited to ACEN by Cap`n_moonie from the chat channel I frequent, #TenchiFF on the aniverse network. At the time I wasn’t too sure about heading back that direction, but I checked my finances and my leave time, and found I could easily accommodate that. Also, I’d never met ol’ moonie and I was looking forward to that. Originally another member of the channel, aisu, was supposed to join us, but she was unfortunately unable to make it. It helped I wound up sharing the room with moonie and a few others so I could cut down on costs considerably…plane flights are rather expensive after all. It also helped that I had applied for a press pass and received one.

Well folks, it's finally here: The 2008 Fanime Masquerade...the first of the Fanime vids I've taken that I'm actually happy with to be honest, heh. This year's theme was song and dance, so you're in for a real treat if you weren't there to see it.

Stop by the forums and tell us what you think! CLOSED

Winter 2008 - Commercials & Promos

Here's a special end of the year treat, folks - I've added some of the previews and commercials for the Winter 2008 anime season. Highlights include Ookami to Koushinryou, based on the Wolf and Spices manga series. There's also what's looking to be the "what the fu...?!" series of the season, Mnemosyne no Musume-tachi, though I'll admit that the video capture for it is pretty bad. Sorry folks - wish I had better for you. Go ahead and click the read more link for this story, but be warned - there's about twenty clips, and they each get their own mini-flash player. Might take awhile to load. Happy New Year!

ACEN 2008 - Masquerade

Well, here we are in the second of the many videos I have to post. This one is the Anime Central 2008 Masquerade...it's a bit big having been recorded in full HD, but it's pretty good none the less. Also, all ACEN vids will be given to the ACEN press staff at full resolution for the convention video, so look forward to that by checking the ACEN website.

More to come as it happens. Don't be afraid to visit the forums and post your thoughts on the videos and pics to be taken. CLOSED

Romeo x Juliet Review

School's finally let out for a couple week's worth of break, and I've finally got a new review to put out there... well, sorta. This quarter included Humanities as a course, and in order to keep myself from going completely insane, I thought that it'd be a good idea to write up a review on Romeo x Juliet for one of my papers. It's an interesting take on a classic story, and worth taking a look at folks. You can discuss it over on the forums, too. CLOSED
