Samurai-Era Culture Festival with Anime Held in Kyoto

The Toei Kyoto Studio Park in the former Japanese capital of Kyoto is holding the Uzumasa Sengoku Festival, a September 29-30 event showcasing anime, games, and samurai traditions.

The festival plans to show Shigurui, Mononoke, Guardian of the Sacred Spirit, Koutetsu Sangokushi, Ayakashi Ayashi, Gag Manga Biyori, and Samurai 7 anime. The festival also includes movie screenings, live music, and cosplay.

Ray’s take: Hyaaa! Gokugazasanma! Kazumushiuta! Hai hai, kochimo, sochimo bakabaka! Zenzen aho! Nondeyanen…Uh, ahem (putting away my bokken), I mean, if you’re in Kyoto you should check it out. I like “Guardian of the Sacred Spirit” but it doesn’t get enough coverage. I hope they have historical re-enactments. I’ve been looking for ways to whack some people with my new bokken…I mean to practice my sword art with it, yeah, that’s it…

I'm a hardcore Anime Fan and I'm proud of it. I know so many things and I've acquired so much knowledge you wouldn't believe. But my love is anime. I've been drifting in this world for so long that I don't even know what an anchor means. I've seen so many shows that I've lost count. The only thing I'm sure of myself is that I care for the lowly and disenfranchised. I hate the rich and powerful and I love what I do, or what I can do. I like anime and I don't mind watching different types of shows. I have experience in different types of Japanese animation. I would be called an "expert" in a bizzaro world. One day, I'd like to start a revolution. I love the US, pizza, beer, sashimi, Chinese food, and steak. But I love freshly baked bread more than a well-aged steak. In reality, if I were born Japanese I'd be a real, hardcore Otaku. I love to love and I can hate strongly. I'm passionate in nature and I don't mind shedding tears.
