Global Shinkai Day Comes to An End

And so, Global Shinkai Day has come to an end. I literally stayed up overnight until Saturday morning at six for the first session, slept for the second then stayed for the others. The number of attendees started off pretty well. It mostly floated between the 10 to 15 people mark for the day but peaked to just over 21 while Promised Days was...


The Tower of Druaga Gets Its Own MMORPG

Yes, that comedy "non-generic" fantasy show has its own MMORPG now and it's free to play too subtitled, "The Recovery of Babylim". Maybe I'll try it out later but I won't be able to relate to the show since I haven't actually watched either season yet. The interface actually reminds me of RAN Online which was a grinding game with no story...

Kemono no Souja Erin, Episodes 2 ~ 7 Summaries

Decided to continue blogging (well, summarise anyway) about "Beast Player Erin" which is based off  a two part novel series because it kind of (dare I say it) has a Ghibli touch to it. Well, until episode six anyway. It has a rich world but the main focus has mainly been on how strong the relationship is between two characters namely Erin...


Classic Anime Shows, From VHS Tapes to DVDs

So I've been spending the past few days dubbing a whole bunch of VHS tapes which explains why there hasn't been any episodic Anime posts so far this week. Got over 50 hours of home videos to help dub over to DVDs... Not a lot in comparison to the ten year span they were recorded within to be honest. Anyway, while I've been doing that, I've also...


Evangelion 1.11 Blu-ray DVD Coming Soon

What a rip off... Gainax has announced they will be releasing v1.11 of the first Rebuild of Evangelion movie "You Are (Not) Alone 1.0" onto Blu-ray and DVD with new cuts and digital re-mastering on May 27th. Having already own the limited edition DVD, I will just have to resort to "open source" to see these new scenes. I bet they held the...


Makoto Shinkai Is Alive and Still In London

It's only been two months since Makoto Shinkai wrote about how he was doing on his website but apparently, fans have been worried and have been writing emails asking him along the lines of, "Are you alive?" In response, he has literally written on his site that he is alive and well and thanks all concerned. On the other hand, ever since...
