At J1-Con I was able to meet Dante Buford a Director and an Animator. I never understood the behind the scenes of creating an animation and all the work that goes into creating animation. There are so many people that work together in creating an animation. There are storyboard artists, animators, artists, voice-over actors, and many other different positions. With all the work from everyone, everything comes together it is visualized into the animation we see. I sat in the panel because I was curious about what the panel was about, I was able to learn a lot about the behind-the-scenes in developing an animation.
I went into a time capsule panel that brought back some great childhood memories, I was surprised to learn that Toonami has been around for 20 years already. I remember growing up running out of school to watch anime on Toonami when they used to broadcast in the afternoon. Over the years I have seen many great dubbed anime series on Toonami, some of my favorite shows is Gundam Wing, Sailor Moon, Yuyu Hakusho, Inuyasha, Dragon Ball Z, and many more. Toonami has changed over the years, as well as T.O.M. everyone’s favorite robot host and mascot of Toonami.
Launching back in 1992, Cartoon Network was the first channel to air cartoons 24 hours a day. Cartoon Network recently celebrated their 25th Anniversary. With the Paley Center hosting exhibits in both New York And California. Cartoon Network also released a special animated bumper in celebration.
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.
As some of you may know, our team attended AnimeNext in Atlantic City, New Jersey early this month. One of our favorite events to attend when going to any anime convention is the Masquerade. All the contestant did a phenomenal job and we captured some of out favorites and posted them via our YouTube. I posted the videos below. So check them out and let us know what you think. Also, don’t forget to check out our photography gallery.
We were at NYCC this past weekend and we had a blast.
If you ever wanted to go to a convention TREAT YO SELF!
they are so much fun if you go with friends and if you go alone you will always make new friends being surrounded by like minded people.
NYCC is every year in October and SDCC is around July if you ever want to go to the small cons as well its mostly positive vibes everyone is nice and encouraging when you cosplay, I try to tell a lot of people they did an amazing job with their cosplay and compliment so maybe you will catch me complimenting you one time.
Cosplaying looks so fun and I plan to actually cosplay next year and I will not back out this time it. Cosplay if you want to!
We have a few post with pictures we took and video we recorded from the con.
