Crunchyroll has used their industry connections to the fullest. Anime NYC is only in its second year and its list of guests is stacked. As a person who is fascinated with sound, this is something that has caught my interest. There an even a point in my life where I wanted to pursue voice over as a career. These folks have my utmost love and respect.
This list was pretty long so I divided it into two. Welcome to part one.
The Gundam Thunderbolt panel was an amazing panel. Not only did we get to view the first U.S. release of the movie but, also their was a mini concert with the band that performed the music from the anime soundtrack. The anime was based on the animated series Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt. The series was very short. The movie is a continuation of the animated series called Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky, which continues the story of series after the One Year War.
Imagine you died and was reborn living out your Otaku fantasy building giant robots and had magic powers well in this anime it happened. The story is every Mecha Otaku’s dream which is to build your own Mecha. Knight’s & Magic is a funny and ironic anime series. I am a huge Mecha fan so this anime really stood out to me because it was a combination of all my favorite genre’s in one. I was curious on how the anime incorporate magic with Mecha. The Mecha’s in this anime share a similarity to the same one in the Gundam series which I loved. The anime series is a fun show to watch. The main character Ernesti is not only cute and adorable but, a major Mecha Otaku in the inside. He is only one true love is the robots not the girls who throw themselves at him.
Day 11: Favorite Mech Anime
My all time favorite Mech Anime is Mobile Suit Gundam Wing. This was not a hard choice for me. I was in love with Duo and Heero. I loved thier gundam suits as well. Heero had the wing Gundam and Duo had the Death Sycthe. I could watch this anime a hundred times and never get bored. My favorite seen was the frist episode when Relena had asked Heero to go to her party because she tought she was cool and he shut her down. I WAS SO HYPE. He ripped the invitation in her face. As many times she would stalk him he would shoot her down sometimes literally. Duo was so cool and relaxed. Duo always played the peacemaker. He was so cute.
