The History of Anime Opening/Closing Themes Panel

Image result for anime opening/closing themes

Over the years the anime opening and closing theme songs have changed. When I heard some of the songs, I had a complete flashback to my childhood. Some series changed their lyrics completely and others used a translated version of the song.

Soulcial Sunday: LCAC 2017

We’re back from our long weekend at Liberty City Anime Con in Times Square. It was so much fun this year around that we got to actually go to more events and panels this time. We have a lot to put up this week so look out for our new posts, videos and photos from this past weekend. This year was much better than last and I’m happy to see LCAC stepping up their game this time.

Next year dates are already set for August 17 – 19, 2018. The live concerts this year were just as great as they were the year before, hopefully a new lineup of events so we can get more variety at this con next time around.

Once again we will have new content coming this week and we’ll be sure to let you guys know. Thank You for supporting us and helping us get this far.

This weekend August 18th – 20th is Liberty City Anime Con 2017. Third year running as New York City’s largest anime convention located in the heart of NYC Times Square Marriott Hotel. Last year we attended LCAC 2016 for the first time and it did have its ups and downs but it was a really fun experience with meeting new people and the awesome dealers selling their merchandise.

Last year all we really did was attend the concerts because most of the panels we wanted to check out were cancelled or no shows, hopefully with this years full schedule there will be less cancellations. We were fortunate enough to interview Patrick Bartley Jr. from J-MUSIC Ensemble. Hopefully this year we can get a few more interviews and more content since this year should be bigger and better than last.

We have our passes and hope you and your friends got yours if not you can purchase your tickets here. For those who already purchased their tickets remember badge pickup starts at 10AM on Friday and Thursday 5PM – 7PM for those who did early registration. We look forward to meeting some of you that are going to be at Liberty City Anime Con just let us know on our twitter if you want to meet up with us.

Here’s a few post we did about last years Liberty City Anime Con:

SDE Presents: Soulcial Shorts

 

Earlier this year, we relaunched our Youtube Channel

After two failed attempts, we came up with a system that works. A few months back, an idea popped up in my head for a music series to accompany everything else we’ve been pushing out.   We’ll call them Soulcial Shorts.

Fooly Cooly (Season 2 and 3 Trailer)

key_art_flcl

Fooly Cooly ( Furi Kuri) is one of the most memorable Anime’s of my childhood. Originally airing on American Television back in 2003.  Fast forward, 14 years later and the mere thought still brings a smile to my face.  From Naota cynical outlook to Haruko’s Vespa and everything in between, most of all Lord Canti.  So when Cartoon Network announced a possible remake, I was in shock but more over confused.  In all seriousness, FLCL has everything packed into six episodes.  What more could they possibly do?  My answer came in the form of a trailer.

Bad Anime, Bad!! Panel

This is post is a collaboration between Alice and Myself on the Bad Anime, Bad!! panel at the AnimeNEXT Convention.

It’s been a few years since we’ve seen a Bad Anime, Bad!! panel at AnimeNEXT seeing the panel still thriving after all this time and each year continuing to come with all of the bad anime there is out in the world makes each year funnier. There are several different types of anime series some are good but, some are just bad. The panel we went to showed nothing but, bad animated series that some may have seen growing up that are recommended for children to watch at a young age but in reality children should not see. This year’s theme was Bad Retro Anime. The clips that were shown were from movies from the 1970’s during the disco era.

After long and exciting weekend. Drey and I, got access to the CAPCOM LIVE! concert. This was my first encounter with CAPCOM LIVE!, to be honest, I didn’t know what to expect but as a CAPCOM fan, I was curious.  I grew up on Super Fighter. And Resident Evil, is hands down on of my favorite game franchises.  Add in Mega Man and Devil May Cry, taking all into account. And I’m a happy camper. Naturally, the music has been with me just as long.

So let’s get right into it.

Anime and America Cinema (Panel)

 

Hetalia (America)

 

I went to an interesting panel at Anime Next about how Anime or Manga series gets Americanized.  Some series that we all know and love should never be replicated. America seems to fail when attempting to recreate an Anime series or movie adaptation with their own spin on it. Sometimes it is not all bad but they still fall short even with the help of A-list directors and screenwriters.
