Ah, this is so wonderfully shojoesque, but this is all done in Kyoto-ben, or Kyoto dialect. Continue reading
Just watched D-FRAGMENTS, and full of torture. Continue reading
The first episode of what looks to be the leading candidate for the butt of all anime jokes in 2014 has hit the airwaves. The most recent episode is available from Funimation’s website, as well you can catch the series in the USA on Adult Swim’s Toonami line up.
Space Dandy is raunchy, colorful, comes with a discretionary label, has giant monsters, large explosions, and will probably be the bane of every woman sick and tired of female exploitation.
Enjoy, you etchi otaku.
First person to come up with a decent drinking game based on Space Dandy that can be played at after-hours during con season gets a googly eyed frog that you will totally appreciate once you lose enough brain cells from watching this show.
Warning: this series inspires absurdity.
This is a live record of the Funimation industry panel held at Otakon Vegas 2014. Funimation is helping to premiere Shinichiro Watanabe’s newest anime, Space Dandy, tomorrow afternoon simultaneously around the world. Will they have any other surprises? Let’s find out…
Closing up with their Geek Week tribute video. That’s it for this liveblog!
Also new streaming announcement: D-Frag! Air date TBD
New streaming simulcasts for winter: Noragami, Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha, and Maken-Ki! S2. The first one is Sunday at 8 AM.
Tomorrow’s Space Dandy premiere will have the dub ADR Director and Ian Sinclair, the English voice of Dandy. Looks like it will be the dub.
Space Dandy promo. I think we are hearing the OP here in this trailer….
Funi is doing the Evangelion 3.33 showings…it’s playing next weekend in LA. Might go.
“Ever get to the end of an anime and feel really sad? Don’t have to worry about it…” –MC on One Piece
Next: One Piece S5. Even the MC seems a little bit tired of One Piece…or at least announcing yet another release.
Looking at the remaster, what seems to have happened is that it looks a little bit cleaner (and blown up to 16;9). It doesn’t really change anything though. The Evangelion remaster though really did seem to make a difference…
Apparently DBZ is being re-released on BD as well. A remaster of a remaster?
The MC promises us “I Love Boobies” (Space Dandy) stickers tomorrow at the Funi booth…
Next: Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero. “From the studio behind Queen’s Blade.” of course.
Fairy Tail movie Phoenix Princess is next. Question: is this the series that’s going to pick up the slack from Naruto and Bleach when they are played out?
“Feel the Urge to Merge” LOL #AquarionEVOL #Funimation #otakonvegas
Aquarion EVOL is next. For some reason I never finished this either, even though I thought it was hilarious.
Next: Wolf Children. Been meaning to see this. Missed the theater screening of this… #Funimation #OtakonVegas
Next: One Piece Strong World. Apparently one of the few things they can even release on BD… #Funimation #OtakonVegas
Next: Binbogami ga! (Good Luck Girl) (Note none of these are new licenses.) #Funimation #OtakonVegas
Upcoming new release: Akira re-release on BD. Trailer. #Funimation #OtakonVegas
Preview of the #Funimation show. (Are these being echoed on Twitter?) #Funimation
They’re talking about the Elite Video Subscription. I was a former subscriber, and since the site has improved a lot… #Funimation
Came in a bit late, but it looks like there hasn’t been any major announcements yet. #OtakonVegas #Funimation
Death escapes those who wish for it most. The worst comes when you know you are a monster of the most horrific form and yet cannot control yourself nor cease your own existence.
Beyond the Boundary explores the similar nature which represents much in the western comic stylings involving lack of the ability to control powers while having to live with the consequences, with the adorable twist of anime kawaiiness.
Is that a suicide in the first scene? Kuriyama Mirai, a megganeko, has no plans for that as she couldn’t even if she wanted to. Oh, she wants to but cannot. Perhaps. Be ready for the bloodiest, sappiest, most sweet tale of friendship and bonding and stabbymcstabbing which starts with a sword through the gut of Kanbara Akihito, a megganekko fanatic. Don’t panic, he can’t die either. Perhaps.
In a world where humans intermingle with and can be born as spirit world warriors (typically genetic), and can crossbreed with youma (aka: “demons” or “spirits originating not of this realm”), the mixed breed Akihito faces each day as though it were just any other typical day. As a member of the literary club, Akihito hides away in the club room after school with his childhood writer friend, Nase until Mirai becomes obsessed with using him as a training tool.
Mirai with her ability to control her own deathly-to-others blood fears harming others, for she knows the pain which that causes, chose her target wisely. Akihito, as he’s half youma, is blessed with the ability to regenerate after being wounded among his many ferocious abilities and therefor makes a sensible practice opponent. Akihito is also quite congenial about the whole shebang so while still wishing Mirai would knock it off he handles himself towards her with compassion.
From that point onwards, the world within ~Beyond the Boundary~ begins to flip topsy turvy. Expect to turn corners that aren’t actually there, relish in the ferocious nature of beasts taking on the worst and often goofiest shapes offered from anime, and by all means ENJOY ALL THAT IS WONDERFUL WITH EPISODE 6; “Shocking Pink.”
Wow, talk about fanfare for the etchi.
Due to the short nature of the light novel series, I don’t expect this series to move into the lengthy realm of Fairy Tail or Gintama and though I have not yet watched the last episode (it’s better I write this before I do) I could easily see this series reaching far and vast into the fandom territory of those who enjoy a multitude of distinct and exclusive genre.
After all, White Album 2 the animation just ended. So, the anime only covered “introductory chapter” of the game. That’s just high school part. But it was very sad. School Days was really bad because Makoto was an @sshole. But White Album 2, at least, the main character dude has conscience, thank God that there’s no “nice boat.” And, college part of the game is kind of “crime and punishment,” which I should think they should animate as 2nd season!
