Adobe_Post_20181213_2141021.jpg

I’ve been on Netflix more than I’d like to admit. Flavor of Youth is three short films about three different people and their lives. The three short stories go over love, self-doubt, and relationships. I really enjoyed each film for the messages I got from them. The films are Hidamari no Choshoku (The Rice Noodles), Chiisana Fashion Show (A Little Fashion Show), and Shanghai Koi (Love in Shanghai).

I wanted to make a post about a genre of music that I love but then I decided why not make a post about the song I keep on repeat. I have a daily rotation playlist on Tidal and I add and subtract songs all the time. I usually make playlists for myself depending on what mood I’m in. I love music a big part of my life sadly I can’t hold a tune or play any instruments YET! Music is still apart of my life and I love what I love.

12 Days of Anime: Netflix’s Godzilla: City on The Edge of Battle

This a continuation of yesterday’s post 12 Days of Anime: Netflix’s Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters. Godzilla: City on The Edge of Battle is part 2 of the series and it was so crazy that I really hope a part 3 comes out next year. I hate cliffhangers and this series really does have a great edge of your seat action then leaves a cliffhanger. Part 3 is going to be even bigger than this movie if Ghidorah shows up.

Spoilers Ahead!

12 Days of Anime: Netflix’s Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters

Last year I saw Netflix put up yet another original anime in my anime suggestions. I love a good Godzilla movie so when I saw this I had to watch it and see how humans will survive this Godzilla. This is part 1 of the series and it was a great movie. It was a new way I saw the world when Godzilla arrives. The art style is very beautiful and to see Godzilla come to life it’s amazing how everything looks.

Spoilers ahead!

I’m late with it but I’ve seen the announcement and still didn’t take 5 mins to watch the trailer. I’ve been looking forward to seeing if DC would redeem the DCU movies. The way I feel about DCU movies is a whole other topic but I’m looking forward to Aquaman because of Jason Momoa.

This man has embodied Aquaman since taking on this role in the Batman v Superman movie. I like Jason Momoa as a person too so I’m really rooting for this movie to be great.

Storyboard Artist Matthew Bordenave at J1-Con 2018

While I sat in the Dante Buford panel, I met Matthew Bordenave who is a Storyboard artist and up next was his panel.  He was very funny and had a great stage presence. I really got to enjoy this panel and had a lot of fun. I was interested in learning about storyboarding because it is part of what makes an animation, this is one of the many jobs that brings an animation to life. With everyone’s hard work, everything comes together into the animation we see. I originally sat in this panel because I was curious about what the panel would be about, I was able to learn a lot about the behind-the-scenes in developing an animation. Continue reading

As the AnimeNEXT festivities continued on we took a break and sat in this Diversity panel hosted by The Panel Sisters. There were so many panels on diversity at this con this year I was so proud to see everyone get to express themselves and find others that identify with them. Diversity is necessary in all sorts of media and I’m excited to see what creators of new anime and manga will come up with after seeing fans call for more diversity.
