Kyousogiga to become a full fledged TV anime series this Fall 2013

When the legendary Toei Animation studio collaborated with Banpresto for the first time, Kyousogiga was born. Originally a one-episode video on Youtube, Kyousogiga made a modest entry into the world in December of 2011. However, popular reception prompted Toei and Banpresto to create the five-episode net series Kyousogiga Dainidan at the end of last year.



And now again, due to popular demand, Toei Animation and Banpresto will come together for a Kyousogiga series this fall. The series is planned to be thirteen episodes consisting of ten regular episodes, two special episodes, and a summary episode.

Cable News: Aqua TV Show Show and SAO to Premiere on [adult swim] and Toonami

Primary Source for Image: Turner Broadcasting System



Two new premieres that are to air soon on Cartoon Network's late night programming blocks include Sword Art Online and Aqua TV Show Show. While there will be other premieres also appearing on the network, such as Children's Hospital, NTSF:SD:SUV::, or Squidbillies, this post will only discuss the two preferred shows that have been mentioned.

Pointless Debate #36: Madarame and I

This has been a rather interesting season so far from my perspective, even if I haven't found any single series to be particularly outstanding. Recently I've been coming across a theme in a number of things. That would be the simple concept of quitting. Let me just clarify that as of the writing of this sentence I don't have any intention of doing that as far as writing this blog is concerned. That doesn't mean I'm above using it as a topic in this little installment of my not often run Pointless Debate series.



The first inspiration for this post is the character Madarame from Genshiken. In this second generation work, he finds himself as a salaryman still attached to the old club in a number of ways. His apartment is closest to campus from a physical standpoint. However much fans want to ship him with the crossdressing Hato is not really important to the story. No, this is more about how he is emotionally tied to a club that he's unable to move on from.

Two Sentence Movie Reviews

I had an idea at work today. I originally intended one of the main components of my blog to be for movie and book reviews. I realized that I hadn't been doing much of that, and there were so many movies I'd seen since I started this, but that I didn't have a whole post to write about. So, instead, mostly because of my laziness, I'll start doing two sentence movie reviews where I pick 10 movies or T.V. shows that I've seen and give a brief synopsis of my reactions to them. Occasionally I'll do a real review for a movie, but only if I feel like there's a real reason to! So here you go - 10 movies I've seen reviewed in two sentences with a starred review as well! :)



OZ: THE GREAT AND POWERFULThis movie was a painfully campy, overacted, candy colored, mockery of the original which created as many questions as it sought to answer. Strangely enough I wound up enjoying it. 3 flying baboons out of 5.

QUES NO 2

What's my interest?

well just to say i have alot alot of interest a kezillion but here are juts some of the main ones!:)

BEING CREATIVE XD

One Piece, up to the episode 3. Next is Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

I know, comparing to what One Piece has to offer I watched nothing. Three episodes, all they did was introducing three characters, one of them is a side kick. So, I basically have no right to judge this anime.



But I will ^^

Cosplay Plans: Phase 0

AS I MENTIONED A FEW WEEKS AGO I WOULD LIKE TO ATTEMPT A COSPLAY OF SOME KIND THIS YEAR AT YOUMACON.



I've been debating on a lot of different anime characters, including Yucie (Petite Princess Yucie), Tenma (School Rumble), Kagome (InuYasha) and Howl (Howl's Moving Castle). Once thinking through the different ideas I realized that I wouldn't actually finish a complicated cosplay - so I decided to cosplay as my alter ego in a sailor fuku.

Let's play a game.



Your job:

To Be Forthcoming...

So I've got a backlog of stuff I want to post this June, but I just haven't had the energy to do it. And if I don't post some of it then stuff will keep backing up and I won't get anything done this month.

I was going to post a review of Black Sabbath's 13 and Deep Purple's NOW WHAT?! but I still haven't figured out exactly what I'm going to say. Plus I haven't listened to them enough to really describe them in a way that justifies how I feel about them. I also plan on posting a "Worst to First" list of The Beatles, but I forgot about LET IT BE... NAKED and BEATLES FOR SALE. So I need to find 'em and give 'em a listen.

I also plan on doing reviews of INUYASHA and INUYASHA: FINAL ACT (I'll probably do those two in one entry), MAN OF STEEL (which I plan on seeing this weekend), and Joe Hill's NOS4A2.

InuYasha and InuYasha: The Final Act

***IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED THE ORIGINAL SERIES OF INUYASHA AND PLAN TO THEN PLEASE GO AWAY OR I SHALL SAY "NI" TO YOU! HERE THERE BE SPOILERS!***

INUYASHA is an anime comprised of 167 episodes and it's primary story is that of a girl named Kagome who can travel back 500 years into the past of Japan to fight demons. There she meets an ill-tempered and immature half-demon named InuYasha, a cursed and lecherous monk named Miroku, and a headstrong demon slayer named Sango. All of them fight against the evil and seemingly unkillable demon named Naraku who uses deception to achieve his own ends.

Containing enough filler and enough repetitious subject matter to make the creators of the DRAGONBALL Z or BLEACH look ingenuitive, INUYASHA is about fifty episodes too long. It's almost grueling to try and watch all of it and by seasons four and five you really wonder if there is ever an end in sight.The entire show you hear about how evil Naraku is and how Kagome and InuYasha and Kikyo feel about each other and after about five seasons of this you just want the damn thing to end one way or the other. At one point I just wanted InuYasha's usually evil brother Sesshomaru to show up and just kill everyone including Naraku and the main characters. Maybe not the greatest ending but at least it'd be a freaking end.

Beginner's Guide to the World of Japanse Anime

Sorry about the huge gap between postings! I got distracted with other things and I didn't have anything that I thought was post worthy yet. But apparently I'm still on an anime kick. I thought of this post after talking to people and realizing that many people don't know much about anime. Since Japanese anime is an extensive category, many people get a little lost when they're first venturing into this genre. So this post is a guide for those who are interested in Japanese anime, but don't know much about it, or aren't sure where to start in watching anime. I'll be giving you a series of tips that will help you understand better the genre of Japanese anime and know what kind of shows you would be interested in watching. Here are the following tips when immersing yourself in the world of anime.



1. UNDERSTAND THE CULTURE OF ANIME

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

One Piece, episode 1. I start to understand why people like it.

In my series of posts that I named "Take a peek" I watch 3-5 episodes of the biggest and most promising shows out there to form some sort of opinion. Well, that was the idea. This time I do one of the most famous and one of the longest anime series out here - One Piece.



As any anime fan I see stuff related to One Piece very-very often. Ever since I started talking on anime forums I have been seeing One Piece fanart, discussions and arguments about One Piece, how it is better or not than other shonen biggies. And to be honest, at the time I did not understand why people even like it. Art style of One Piece, when I was seeing it on static pictures, used to not impress me at all. And I used to find the character designs being anything, but in my taste. Not to mention that the all the villains look comical.

Peter Pan no Boken 2013/07/15

Let's Search Manga in Japanese !



Peter Pan no Boken

Spring 2013 Anime Roundup

As a whole, Spring 2013 was a nod towards the old school. None of the titles captured the best of their respective genres - this will probably be remembered mostly as a spring season of mediocrity across the board - but the pleasant throwbacks to older times made each series pretty worthwhile for the hardcore anime fan. As usual, we got a lot of variety to pick from.



I'll start off by singling out the titles I think everyone should watch, my own opinions of quality aside. I like anime, so I try not to be too harsh on it, but if you're not hardcore about it and you don't have the time to consume as much anime as I do, I wouldn't say there was much released recently that is worth keeping up with in the scheme of things.

New Preview for Ghibli Film Kaguya-hime no Monogatari

Many Ghibli fans were no doubt disappointed when the release date for the studio's film Kaguya-hime no Monogatari was pushed back to this fall. It was supposed to preview the same day as another Ghibli film, The Wind Rises, which is due out later this month.



At least we're finally getting a look at Kaguya-hime no Monogatari now. A preview for the film showed on Japanese TV during a variety show's special on Studio Ghibli. Check it out below.

Things I've Noticed About Good Fanfiction Stories Turning Into Bad!fics

Just a couple of things I've noticed thatwell, if they don't change the story entirely, it is a good indicator that either the story will be going to a dark place, or else will be put in hiatus soon.

Or else will show that the good start was an illusion.


Anime Terms

My anime history started with me watching anime on tv dubbed when I was little. I watched Sailor Moon , Cardcaptor Sakura and Pokemon to begin with and when I got a little older I watched Inuyasha , a bit of the Gundam stuff (though I didn't really like it) and because I was a rebel I watched Witch Hunter Robin late at night. Then I went away from anime for a long time probably because I wasn't to fond of Yu-GI-Oh , Beyblade or any of the other shows playing.



But in late 2011 I got back into anime when my sister was rewatching Inuyasha and watched it with her. We then re watched Cardcaptor Sakura. From there we began watching more current shows all in English dubs and I became more immersed in the shows often finding the shows I wanted to watch were only in subtitles. I always discovered the joys of manga and how much fun they were. My sister lost interest again but here I am still watching more anime than ever.I only recently found out about anime blogs last summer when I somehow stumbled upon randomcuriosity.net and it was from here that I began seeing terms I didn't understand.

REVIEW -- Inuyasha

It's summer time and I have plenty of time to catch up on my anime that I have been neglecting for the past year or more. I read all of the Inuyasha mangas after the original anime series ended and sought to watch this "proper" conclusion to the series when the mangas weren't fresh on my mind.



Since I have so many close friends who quickly got addicted to this anime in it's original iteration, I figured it was long overdue for me to watch this series to finish the journey that the original anime ended prematurely.

My First (Writing Experience)

I think that one of the main reasons people don't write is because they think they have to be good at it right away.



That it should come along the same way we first learned to write, in that it comes along with reading.

KUROKAMI ANIME REVIEW: WHAT IF YOU HAD THE POWER TO CONTROL YOUR FATE?

I first watch kurokami two years ago and i remember enjoying it immensely, which is why i didn't hesitate giving it a second watch again when i came across it three or so weeks ago. And while i still managed to enjoy it, i think i will attribute it mostly to the fact that the series was dubbed in English, and those kinds of shows i tend to enjoy more than most. There is something refreshing about being able pay complete attention to the events of an anime without having to constantly avert your eyes to the bottom to read subtitles, then feeling the need to rewind the anime because you missed an especially fast event.

THE PLOT:>

Keita Ibuki is a young high school student that has known nothing but misfortune all his life. Starting with his mother, everyone that he has ever known or come close to has died, sometimes in disturbing and mysterious circumstances. This has led Keita to live his life alone, unwilling to suffer what he sees as a curse upon any that would choose to put themselves in harms way by getting close to him.

2000, Part 1: Last Stop of the Millennium

Patrick Stoeckel began his anime life with the Toonami line-up, then moved on to the unedited DVDs. After that, it's been a steady stream of writing about it (via before moving the blog to ) and occasionally teaching an informal class on the subject. His passion for anime runs deep, and his blog is his outlet for commentary. You can also find his commentary on Twitter at, appropriately, @.I chose the year 2000 primarily because it lay within my early years of anime-watching (and, to be honest, it was one of the few remaining years available that I had any real knowledge of). My first real exposure to anime came through the significantly edited broadcasts of shows like Sailor Moon that made the rounds on Cartoon Network back in the day. That first experience got me hooked, and I began purchasing DVDs when I could. The unedited DVD releases of these shows informed me of how diverse Japan's animated fare could be, and I remained a fan ever since.

2000 was an interesting year for anime. Toonami still broadcast edited versions of shows that remained popular; the debut of [adult swim] the following year will change the broadcast dynamic for Cartoon Network. With Toonami, it would broadcast old favorites (such as Rurouni Kenshin and G Gundam) throughout the upcoming decade. As should be noted, Pokemon's popularity in the 1990s saw the emergence of the controversial 4Kids releases-controversial because of the "Americanization" and censoring elements prevalent in their broadcasts.

The dawn of the 21st century (and the new millennium) marked a surge of popularity in the Dragon Ball franchise, as well as other titles such as the various Gundam shows and Pokemon (all of which remain major pulls). The U.S. market proved very receptive to anime, ever since the previous decade, and the upcoming decade would see more shows being released (particularly on the Adult Swim block). As far as television in general goes, a few live-action dramas debuted (including Ikebukuro West Gate Park, which received a manga adaptation), and TV viewing had been astounding from the 1980s onward. But what did the anime scene look like in that year?

Two Sentence Movie Reviews

I had an idea at work today. I originally intended one of the main components of my blog to be for movie and book reviews. I realized that I hadn't been doing much of that, and there were so many movies I'd seen since I started this, but that I didn't have a whole post to write about. So, instead, mostly because of my laziness, I'll start doing two sentence movie reviews where I pick 10 movies or T.V. shows that I've seen and give a brief synopsis of my reactions to them. Occasionally I'll do a real review for a movie, but only if I feel like there's a real reason to! So here you go - 10 movies I've seen reviewed in two sentences with a starred review as well! :)



OZ: THE GREAT AND POWERFULThis movie was a painfully campy, overacted, candy colored, mockery of the original which created as many questions as it sought to answer. Strangely enough I wound up enjoying it. 3 flying baboons out of 5.

REVIEW -- Inuyasha - The Final Act (Complete Series)

It's summer time and I have plenty of time to catch up on my anime that I have been neglecting for the past year or more. I read all of the Inuyasha mangas after the original anime series ended and sought to watch this "proper" conclusion to the series when the mangas weren't fresh on my mind.
