Fanime 2013 Haul

I now have a huge Ore Imō wallscroll hang­ing over my bed. Hey guys! I’m back from school, and rar­ing to post cov­er­age on my expe­ri­ences at Fanime 2013. For­tu­nate­ly (or rather, unfor­tu­nate­ly?), Fanime is the time of year where I stop giv­ing a shit about col­lege in favor of cater­ing to the weeb inside […]

RE: The roots of our fandom

Yume­ka of Mainichi Ani­me Yume wrote an arti­cle where she harkened back to her child­hood and exam­ined the ori­gins of when her love of ani­me first began and, of course, why it still per­sists in her heart today. She asked her read­ers if they could trace any instances of ear­ly “ner­dom” with­in their child­hoods that […]

Shiki 06

Final­ly, our two main char­ac­ters are slow­ly begin­ning to real­ize the true plague caus­ing the deaths in the vil­lage. Unfor­tu­nate­ly for Nat­suno, cross­es prob­a­bly won’t do a thing against Shik­i’s vari­a­tion of vam­pires. That would be way too easy.

The Problem with Live Action Adaptations in Hollywood

First name: 安昂 Last name: Brown… Wait, what? Most of us tend to despise live action adap­ta­tions of the anime/manga and car­toons we love, most­ly because there is always some­thing wrong with them. Whether it be adap­ta­tion decay, white­wash­ing, mis­cast­ing, char­ac­ter derail­ment… you name it. Most of the live action adap­ta­tions I’ve ever hat­ed come […]

Whatever happened to the 520 Cens Promise?

Seri­ous­ly, I total­ly for­got about it. Appar­ent­ly Arakawa for­got about it too… or did­n’t bring it up on pur­pose because Mus­tang has­n’t become the Fuhrer yet. A men­tion of it would have been nice, though. I guess she left it up for the read­ers to decide. So, do YOU think Roy will ever get his […]

Fullmetal Analysis: Comprehension, Deconstruction, & Reconstruction (Series End)

And so goes the fan­dom I’ve been fol­low­ing for god knows how long. First ani­me was a mixed bag, month­ly waits for the man­ga chap­ters were a tor­ture, and the sec­ond ani­me brought me into an adren­a­line rush that was cer­tain­ly not good for my health. But let me say this: it was worth the […]

Seasonal Blogging List (Mid-Summer)

Pret­ty much all the con­firmed shows I’m going to blog until the next batch of shows stick their ugly heads in. I’m prob­a­bly going to watch one or two more shows in addi­tion to the ones I’m going to blog. How­ev­er, I’m too much of a wimp to blog that many shows. That, and I […]
