We’ve made it another year! This year has been one of our best years with all the content we were able to get out and all the adventures we had at every convention we were able to attend thru out the year. Our year was full of fun, hard work and we’re happy to welcome a new year with all of you.
The live action of Fullmetal Alchemists made it’s US debut at Anime NYC and you had to purchase $10 tickets to see it and I must say I really liked the movie, it all was just a summary of everything that happens in FullMetal Alchemist with a twist. The movie will officially be released on December 1st, 2017. The wonderful thing about this movie is that the ENTIRE cast is Japanese and it was amazing to actually see it play out this way, I honestly wouldn’t want to see a Hollywood adaptions because this was just perfect as is.

The J-MUSIC Ensemble is an 8 piece band consisting of drums, keyboard, bass, guitar and a horn section with two trumpets, a trombone, and saxophone. Best described through their slogan: Jazz meets J-Pop. Which essentially, is what they do. Think-polished Jazz musicians, tackling Japanese Popular Music with the horns taking the fore front, at times standing in as substitution for the human voice. Though at times, the human voice is still included because there is nothing quite like it. Overall, bringing a new perspective to the world of Japanese Music.
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.
I’ve been waiting on this to drop for a while now. And now that it with in my grasp, I am ecstatic and low key kinda speechless. But with a staff of this caliber, how could I not be? Character designs by Hiroshi Shimizu, storyboard by Shingo Natsume, and animation by Mitsuo Iso. As well as director Yûichi Takahashi. With the entire project being headed by LeSean Thomas.
And how could I forget. Music by Mr. Hudson
Hey What’s Up,
June was a pretty eventful month for us at SDE. Our trip to AnimeNext was successful. We had tons of fun as a unit and dropped content that spanned over a month. Here a recap of our panels covered during the event. With a brief summary below.

She encounters a lovely young woman who comes to her rescue. Tsukimi soon learns that the Princess who rescued her wasn’t really a princess at all, She was really a Man. Kuranosuke Koibuchi, the youngest son of a political family. From then on, Tsukimi’s and her housemate’s lives were flipped upside down.
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.
