UTR2 Ranma Evangelion

What's good guys!

Up from my seemingly unending list of anime's in my backlog, I have started watching this show calledRanma 1/2. Now, this is a show I actually watched as kid a long time ago and I hardly remember or even know if watched the entire series. All i knew was that it was about some dude that turns into a girl once cold water is put on him and turns back to a male with hot water. This show is pretty dated and unfortunately, i'm watching the dubbed version yet it is still quite funny and more comical than what I thought it would be; in short a pleasant surprise.

Fishing in the Discount Bin

Welcome back to Fishing in the Discount Bin, my weekly ramble about one of the movies that I happen to own.Today we get to what I think is one of the funniest animated movies ever made, .This is originally dated in my notes at January 12, 2013.

Well, as I recently mentioned with my looks at the Pixar short film collections, a friend of mine liked it so much that she shared it across the social networks. I was reading some of the comments on it, and there was one that stuck in my craw. That comment was along the lines of, "I don't know why people make such a big deal about American animation anyway." I'm familiar with that comment. It's the common lament of the otaku...the anime snob, who believes that the only animation worth watching comes from Japan. It brought me back to my time in Japan, when I was discussing some of my favourite anime with one of my students. After I finished exulting the brilliance of Ranma 1/2, she just looked at me with a befuddled expression and said, "You know it's all for kids, right?"

Random Historical Person: Asai Nagamasa (Part 2)

Good Evening from Akkeshi! Shall I continue my story? Grab your popcorn and perhaps a drink too since now this is going to get more interesting.

So when we last left off, the Battle of Mt. Usa claimed the lives of Nobuharu Oda and Yoshinari Mori. With their death's and his defeat at Usa, Nobunaga started to prepare for his next move against the Asai-Asakura Coalition. However, due to problems with his concurrent seige of the Ishiyama Honganji (Big Buddhist Fortress in Osaka), he had to delay his plans against the Asai-Asakura. But finally in 1573, he gathered his forces and once again marched to Ichijodani. This time, in order to prevent Nagamasa from attacking his rear again, Nobunaga divided up his forces, one to Ichijodani, and the other to Odani (home of the Asai). To make a long story short, Yoshikage eventually kills himself as the Oda close in on his position, thus ending the Asakura Clan. Nobunaga also saw to it that Yoshikage's head as presented to him.

Petshop of Horrors [Manga]

One of the better mangas I read early on, it holds up with its consistent dosage of simple to beautiful to gory art. The short story formula works a lot better for this series than it did with Jing King of Bandits. If it can keep itself from coming off as fillery it can likely go on indefinitely with a set number of volumes and fascinating tales.

There is a Petshop somewhere in the Chinatowns around the world or likely your very own. And in it are things beyond imagining, where your fears, dreams and simple harsh conclusions are realized. More often people stumble in and are simply victims of circumstance, a passing lion or some other beast you have never heard of. This series somehow manages to blend with reality and also blends occasional humor with serious supernatural life threatening situations.

Count D is a interesting character, almost similar to Neil Gaiman's Sandman where he is the common thread tying all the short stories together. Not to mention he comes off looking like your typical vampire who happens to have a ridiculous sweet tooth. He interacts with the police, gangsters and almost every other person from different walks of life. And yet, despite how cultured and worldly he is, to others he still comes off as uncaring about the human race, creepy and occasionally quirky.

Anime Revolution 2013

For this year, I had the opportunity to see ORIGA live and interview Yamaguchi Kappei, Furuya Tohru. If those names didn't get your attention. Yamaguchi Kappei is the voice of Ussop in One Piece. Along with that, Yamaguchi has voiced Ranma and Inuyasha. For Furuya Tohru, think of Gundam, and now think of Amuro Ray. Yes, THE Amuro Ray from the Gundam Universe. If that didn't interest you, what about Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask or Pegasus Seiya from Saint Seiya? Either way, it was great being able to meet Yamaguchi and Tohru. To ask a few questions and have the opportunity to have a photo with them. Along with that, just like any other convention I attend, there will be cosplay photography.

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Short Stories, Vol. 1


There's an important thing to keep in mind when reading this first of two collections of short stories that were interspersed throughout the series' run: they didn't run in Nakayoshi. They ran in a sister magazine, run Run, which was also home to Sailor V. Run Run no longer exists today, but I seem to recall when it was around that its core audience was girls about 2-3 years younger than the usual Nakayoshi audience. And that's not even getting into the fact that these are quick side-stories Naoko dashed off in between chapters, so are naturally going to be a bit more comedic and fluffy than the core plotline.

Girls playing in a boys' club? No way! Anime is for everybody!

One of the best parts of getting into nerd culture is that it's a group fairly open to both genders. One immediately thinks of boys when they think comic books, D&D, Star Trek, and anime, but in actuality, we girls make up a pretty sizable portion of the geek fandom. We also happen to be the most prominent communication side of being a nerd. More often than not, we're the ones writing the fanfiction, releasing doujinshi, creating fan art, and shipping our favorite couples the hardest.

I've been to several to conventions since embracing my nature as an otaku girl, and I've been pleased with the amount of fellow women attending, as well as the amount of panels, merchandise, and fan materials geared to us. I'm not saying that every single female anime fan wants bishounens all over her wall scrolls, but it's nice to have more options than, say, a whole wall of High School DxD fanservice for sale. I usually come away from my convention experiences with plenty of things I love from my favorite DVDs (Code Geass) to fandom paraphernalia (CLAMP), and I never feel as if I'm wading through a lot of products that are irrelevant to me in order to find what I want.

It helps that in the US, manga and anime initially established a strong female base when it first came over. Sure we were all watching Pokemon, but females in particular were the ones investing themselves in series such as Inuyasha, Sailor Moon, Ranma, Fruits Basket etc. The market was rife with stories we could get into, some romances, some centered on bishounens, some about strong female characters, and some about enduring friendships. Our tastes were not narrowed to simply "shoujo" and "yaoi," because your average female viewer likes variety--you'll find quite a few of us tuning into shounen, action/adventure, and horror, for example.

English Dub Cast for Good Luck Girl!

FUNimation Entertainment has announced the English dub cast for the Good Luck Girl! television anime series:

* Brina Palencia is Ichiko

50 Great Series Finales

Every great story needs a great ending. A story should not keep going and going and going like the Energizer Bunny: it has to have a stopping point. A conclusion. Even the most open-ended endings possible are acceptable if they're done right. The quality of an ending can make or break how a story is perceived and remembered. TV series' do not always tell stories. They can be episodic or plotted and serialized depending on the content. But like stories, great TV shows should have great finales. Something to really cap off the experience and prove that it was all worthwhile. So in this entry, I've selected 50 TV shows I've seen that I feel had particularly great series finales. Most of them are animated 'cause I have not caught up with all the live action TV shows of my time yet. Please keep in mind that this is for TV series', not movies, books, or video games. Those are a similar but different matter. Without further delay, I'll cover 50 great series finales of my (mostly animated) TV experience!

Winnie The Pooh And Christmas Too (The New Adventures Of Pooh) - This show did the whole "ending on a Christmas special" thing better than "The Care Bears Family" did. This actually feels like a special episode of the series and was a worthy cap-off to a fun show.

When the Otaku in You Grows Up: Part 1

I spent much of early puberty soaking it up watching anime and playing video games, a reality my parents had to give into when they uprooted their only child from our old home in the suburbs where we had the security of a village and neighbors with kids. I actually had a childhood that I spent running around outdoors, learning to ride a bike, had grand (mis)adventures. But when we had to move to the city, the child who would be impossible to stay indoors was suddenly forced to stay put with no where to go, and no one to play with.

Guilt easily set in with my parents (mwehehehehehe) and I was suddenly granted my first gaming console, and exposure to cartoons from Japan (thanks to the local networks and Laserdisk rentals). Though I've watched some anime in the '80s, nothing really stuck to me in the way YuYuHakusho, Sailormoon, Slayers, Ranma 1/2 and a host of other titles did. I became an Otaku, a term that didn't exist back in the '90s here in the Philippines but best described me then.

Project A-Ko Review

Hi there! Last Friday's movie was a bit of a downer. It was good, but it left me a little depressed. Luckily, today's review is a goofy, silly, happy, and slightly sexy flick. So, without further words, let's look at the oddball title, and old-school Otaku favorite, Project A-Ko.

STGCC 2013: Vampy Bit Me (Linda Le) interview

STGCC 2013: VAMPY BIT ME INTERVIEWI had the chance to sit down and speak to cosplayer Vampy Bit Me (Linda Le) at STGCC. She's an experienced cosplayer who has put together some incredible costumes, done some great photoshoots and earned herself a legion of fans on the internet. I'm a big fan of her Lady Nightwing cosplay myself (you'll see it a little later). Read to hear how she got her nickname, what she thinks of reimagined anime, which fashion designer she looks up to, that whole "cosplayers getting harassed" issue and how long it takes to put a costume together from concept to convention.

Q: Is your name in any way inspired by the viral video?

Castro: Paternalism

Many families live under the heavy hand of a self-willed patriarch who always knows best. The last half-century of Cuban history demonstrates the effects of extending patriarchal power over a whole nation. Today is Fidel Castro's 87th birthday.He still tells his people what: in weekly "reflections," Fidel summarizes books that Cubans are not allowed to read and specifies the faults that they ought to find in them if they could.

Fidel was always special. The son of a Spanish immigrant, he had the new arrival's intense love of his country and the foreigner's conviction that it could be shaken into shape. He was always moving forward: "I was born in Oriente province.We do most of the work; we make the most rum and sugar. We make the most money, too." At the age of 12, he wrote to Franklin Roosevelt offering to show him the "bigest mines of iron of the land" and asking for $10 in return.

He was well educated in private schools, then went to the University of Havana, where politics was waged with an intensity only slightly below that of gang warfare. He trained as a lawyer (and still writes like one), before sliding left and eventually becoming the figure we know so well: the bearded cigar-wielding revolutionary in fatigues appearing out of the jungle to liberate his country.

Nate Reports: Japan Expo 2013

You would hear about Japan Expo around areas in Europe as it is one of the biggest conventions in the area. Just last year, they have held a record attendance of 208,000 attendees! Wow even Anime Expo can't beat that! It's so big that they would put a subsidiary convention in the United States. And wouldn't you know it, Japan Expo's first US convention was located here in the Bay Area. Of course I would take advantage and planned to attend this convention hoping for an awesome time (before school begins for me.....)

Father's Day: Pancake FAIL and a trip to the Museum

Fathers day.We were woken at 6.30am by Jaimee, who came in and asked if it was time to give Dad his cards yet.No! we mumbled and attempted some more sleep.Kate joined us in ourbed minutes later, while Jaimee and Luke played loudly in the bedroom next door until the clock hit exactly 7am.Then we did the present/card thing with all the kids bouncing on the bed with poor Marty just wishing for a sleep in and trying to read cards blurry eyed.I went to get up early and make Marty breakfast in bed, but he didn't want it so that was easy for me -I did manage to get all the kids fed and dressed for church myself though! Loved at church today.After church, I was determined to do the big cook thing for my man on Father's day, so it was to be pancakes for lunch.Oh dear, I had such good intentions.I whipped up a couple of batches of mix - one spelt flour for him, the other plain flour for us.BIG. FAIL.Turns out we really need a new frying pan.That, and I was a little too free with the milk or not free enough with the flour in the mix.Pancake after pancake stuck to the pan, broke and crumbled into a big globby mess as I got more and more frustrated.I swore that "I. am. never. making. pancakes. again" and professed myself a failure....even though I knew that is the worst example ever to give the listening girls!Marty even tried to take over (apparently he is the pancake king), but he had no better luck.In the end, I resorted to microwaving the mixture on a plate in batches until it was half cooked, and then finishing it in the pan.As I said, BIG. FAIL.I had to laugh as I apologised to Marty over and over again for my useless wife skills.I ended up eating dinner leftovers, while my family dined on yoghurt!

Ah well, moving on.We had organised a family trip to Waipawa's Early Settler's Museum with the extended family, as they were having a special interactive display that the kids would enjoy. Luke loved the trip down the countryside, pointing out "cow!" with glee, then cupping his mouth with both hands and with a big yell to the cows, greeting them with a huge "MOOO!!!"We giggled.

The kids loved peeking in at the old roadman's hut, and seeing how the men lived in their tiny home on the roadside.Jaimee said that was her favourite thing, and both girls liked peeking out of this:
