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.

gdj3gwnl

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.

Under The Bed: Horror in Anime & Manga

After a long day of running around, Drey and I took a small break in the Manga library.  Like the idiot I am, I started reading volume one Uzumaki うずまき by Junji Ito. Homie is twisted but that’s a topic for another day.  The library closes, now my mind fuckery level is at an all-time high. I was so confused.   That confusion only heightened.  

I was not ready.
