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.

Favorite Anime Directors

Who’s the best anime director(s)?  Is a question that often pops up in conversation.  And while these answers vary from person to person, They are often biased.  Think about it? Can you actually rate or rank creativity? There is some clear distinction between someone who is lacking vs someone who produces a lot but other than that.  There really isn’t a way to do so.

For me personally, I prefer asking questions like. What are your Top 5? Or which (blank) has influenced you the most.  These questions are more personal. People are less likely to try and disbute this.

So Liz, who are some of your favorite directors in the anime industry?

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.

Another アナザー

Image result for another

Another is an anime based on a Manga and Novel written by Yukito Ayatsuji. This anime will screw with your head from beginning to end, trying to figure out why all of this is occurring. There is a lot of violence and gore which I do not recommend for the light-hearted. This is a good horror series. It will shock you when you least expect it. This story takes many turns and there are lots of plot twists that will leave you baffled.

30 Day Anime Challenge: Day 1

Day 1: What was the very frist Anime you watched?
My first anime was Speed Race I honestly can’t say i know it word for word but i do remember it.

Speed Racer was always on when i was a kid so it’s just what I watched to be entertained. I used to always laugh at how the movements of the characters mouths were way off from what was being said.

My mother introduced me to the original japanese version when she bought the bootleg dvd off the street with the original name for speed racer Mach GoGoGo. I’ve learned to read fast becuase of speed racer. The funny thing is I didnt even know most of the words at 5 years old I just went along with them and failed speaking the japanese I learned since i watch the dvd often.

I can say that life lesson i learned from Speed Racer is to never give up no matter what happens in the race, as cheesy as that sounds til this day I will always have a spot in my heart for the anime that started my love for watching anime.
