Riding on a bit of an anime nostalgia train at the moment and how do I forget one of my first weeaboo awakening? Gundam Wing.
Sure, just like any other Asian girl who grew up with Sailor Moon, anime has always been a part of my life. It wasn’t until I fell into the deep, fandom hole of Gundam Wing that I discovered there is a level of love for anime that I’ve never explored before. Slash fiction? Pining for supposedly 15-year old boys who pilot war-rigged mecha robots? Fangirling with no concept of shame? Sign me up.
This edition of Fanart GLEE is dedicated to the five boys who defined what “doki doki” meant to me.
Humans keep proving to suck at being humans which is why robots will destroy us all… At least Gambitatum IS still happening. We’re happy. Fanfic Theatre: Star Wars.
One of the most prominent anime series in the minds of US otaku is definitely, totally, and probably always will be, DRAGONBALLZ. One of the longest running series in all of nerd-dom, it continues to reinvent itself only just enough so that it tickles our nostalgia, making us nod knowingly about leveling up, or talking about going Super Saiyan.
At San Diego Comic-Con, we were pleased to see the franchise represented in the most kick ass way possible, as Funimation rolls out one after another super fun, fan-focused promotion for their upcoming August release of the English dub of DragonballZ: Resurrection ‘F’.
Nestled on a balcony of Conival’s huge event held in Petco Park during SDCC, the DragonballZ crew went all out to test fans’ power levels to see if they could join Frieza’s army in an event called “FRIEZA FORCE: GALACTIC ARMY BOOTCAMP!” Costumed actors yelled out to passerby to recruit them to the army and test their skills!
Check out this video of one of the most unique and fun marketing experiences set up at SDCC.
So a few months ago, I posted about how there wasn’t a whole lot of anime that I was excited to watch for the Spring season. I recommended two, and moved along.
I’m here to tell you, as spring anime season comes to an end, that I have led you astray, my friends.
When I was looking through the list of anime back then, I saw an anime called Seraph of the End, and was interested in the art style, but then read the synopsis:
One day, a mysterious virus appeared on Earth which killed every infected human over the age of 13. At the same time, vampires emerged from the world’s dark recesses and enslaved mankind. Enter Hyakuya Yuuichirou, a young boy, who along with the rest of the children from his orphanage, are treated as livestock by the vampires. Even in captivity, Yuuichirou dreams big. He dreams of killing vampires. He dreams of killing them all.
So you see, I read this and I thought. Eh. Kids? I don’t like kids. Vampires are okay but with kids? Pfff. Post-apocalyptic? Ehh. Over it. I guess this is part of the problem with my tendency to just pick animes based on first impressions, and not look into anything [like the manga] before making decisions.
I have learned my lesson, everyone.
