Yuushibu Review Up

I've got to do more of these. There are so many series that deserve a review...or a roasting, all things depending. In any event, here's a review of the dark lord at work anime, Yūsha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shūshoku o Ketsui Shimashita, or I Couldn’t Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job. Helluva mouthful there. In what has seemingly become its own genre, we follow the trials and tribulations of the workers of the magical electronics store, Leon, in a post war economy, where everyone is more than they seem, and all are trying to do the best they can in a situation that could be far worse for them. Check out more in the review!

Yuushibu Review (TV, 2014)

Overview

The Evil Overlord has been defeated, and peace is restored; huzzah! Cupcakes for everyone! Except your whole damn economy is geared towards that fight, and the Mao of Maoyuu was not the big bad to save your ass. Heroes and soldiers are now out of work, and the ones training to be such are, if they're lucky, relegated to flipping burgers. No one will buy the super expensive equipment anymore; what would be the point? So shitloads of epic gear winds up in landfills. Basically, life stinks, but it could have been worse for former aspiring Hero, Raul Chaser, who winds up at a Magic Shop called Leon. At least he has a job, and while it's not what he envisioned, the work is good, the people are good, and the pay is decent. Again not optimal, but manageable...at least until this strange person comes by asking for the manager. A manager who immediately employs this individual and put him in charge of training them. Problem is who this person winds up being and why the manager did what she did, which will cause him a universe full of problems and turn this man's worldview inside and out.

Sac Anime Summer 2014 Report Up And Vimeo

Okay, a bit of procrastination aside, we now have the Sac Anime Summer 2014 report up. I'm not the only one going to be doing one, or so I hope, so expect at least one more. I found this event to be pretty much stress free and generally fun; so why not check it out how I lived it?

Also you can check out the videos embedded in the report, including the Masquerade that is hosted at our new Vimeo channel (not sure if it'll last, but we'll see).

Enjoy!

Sac Anime Summer 2014 Report

Ah, Sac Anime Summer 2014.

I think this is the fourth year I've gone to this convention, having been convinced to go by Mayhem due to it being a smaller convention, and thus not prone to the same, shall we say, 'mishaps' that tend to occur at the larger ones. They're happier just having fun and hanging out with others that enjoy all the same things we do. Yes, that's an apt description; the smaller conventions have less drama and are more laid back overall. Unfortunately as a convention does grow, attendance grows so problems and other concerns creep up. Logistics gets more problematic due to more people getting involved, the need for more space becomes a greater issue, you can now bring in higher caliber guests, but have to deal with the baggage they carry, and so forth and so on. I mention this as I've seen it happen to two conventions so far: Anime Expo and Fanime. They each followed the same pattern. Even ACEN has done this to an extent, though I came in during their transition from smaller to larger convention (and there's other concerns with the midwestern convetions that have become more prevalent as time has gone on, but that's another article). I note this because Sac Anime is about where Anime Expo was in 1999, when I first went to it. I've seen this convention as it was, small and fun at the hotel, but now it's about to start making the leap into being a larger convention, and now we're all going to see how they handle it given all the examples and lessons learned in the past that are available. Let us hope they are students of history.

Sac Anime Summer 2014 Moves Up On Youtube

I was going to wait awhile before announcing it formally due to the fact that I'll be dealing with how youtube has been silencing our vids left and right. It's looking more and more like I'm going to be heading to Vimeo, but that's a logistics problem I have to iron out before I can do so. In any event, we have the Eyeshine concert, The Slants concert, and the Lolita Fashion show up on our Youtube page for your viewing pleasure.

For those waiting for the HD rips, I'll be making those avaible in a couple of days, and it will include the Masquerade. Enjoy!
