While we gear up for our big exodus to California for the annual Anime Expo, we have finally finished processing all the pics we took at Colossal Con 2017. For those of you who are not aware of what Colossal Con is or where it takes place, it is a beach party convention hosted in the city of Sandusky Ohio. With a large pool and plenty of areas for photo shoots, Colossal Con is an optimum place for cosplayers and cosplay photographers alike. As with all our photo albums, if you are one of the cosplayers within the album and would like a high res version of the image of...


Ten Most Exciting Announcements at E3 2017

E3 2017 draws to a close, and with it end the incredible announcements from top gaming companies such as Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft. Though this year may not have been as exciting as previous years, some great announcements were made that fulfilled the wants and desires of many a video game fan. In no particular order, here’s the list of announcements we’re most excited for: 1. Kirby for Nintendo Switch We just can’t get enough of Kirby, and apparently Nintendo can’t either! Our favorite little pink blob returns, starring in his own game for the Nintendo Switch. Kirby (working title) features improved graphics and a buddy system returning to the...


Attack on Titan Season 3 Confirmed

Today after the finale for the season of Attack on Titan came the announcement that season 3 is confirmed.  See the video below video for more information. Based on the video alone, we can tell that season 3 is going to contain a lot of content. We won’t spoil anything, but by mentioning the sea, that means they will get through two arcs during the duration of that season. Which could potentially imply that there will be 25 episodes. This is not confirmed yet, but would make sense given how much content they are showing in the preview. Considering that they have been following the manga to a T, we are pretty...


New Subtitled Trailer for Live Action Tokyo Ghoul Film

The official website for the upcoming live action adaptation to Sui Ishida’s Tokyo Ghoul has uploaded a new trailer for the film. Interestingly, the trailer is entirely subtitled in English so that fans of the series overseas can enjoy the trailer as well. Also of note is the fact that the trailer introduces some unseen footage of the upcoming adaptation and it introduces the theme song “BANKA” performed by illion. You can check out the trailer below: The trailer features a peak at the fight between Kaneki and Amon, something I would be very interested to see a live action take on. Starring in the film is Masatake Kubota, notable for his...

Colossal Con Cosplay Round-up Album #1

Colossal Con is a notorious convention synonymous with the words “water park.” Which conveniently gives us ample opportunities to snag a bunch of great photos of everyone enjoying some time in the sun. And speaking of water parks, we even had a underwater shoot that we will include in a post later on. That being said, Colossal Con was a blast. We met a ton of great folks and here is a quick collection below: As with all our shoots, if you are one of the cosplayers in this album and would like a higher res image that what is posted, feel free to reach out to us at our...


Tokyo Ghoul Film to Premiere at Anime Expo

Tokyo Ghoul is getting a live action film. The film is set to premiere on July 29, but Anime Expo attendees will have the opportunity to see the world premiere on July 2. According to the page on the Anime Expo website, Tokyo Ghoul is restricted to 18+ attendees with wristbands “due to mature content.” The manga and the anime are notoriously gory, so it’s safe to assume that the film adaptation will be as well. This premiere is particularly noteworthy for Anime Expo. The convention has previously been home to world premieres for animated films, but Tokyo Ghoul is the first live-action film to receive a world premiere at the increasingly popular convention. Tokyo...

Hopefully these pics will hold everyone over while we process our pics from Colossal Con this past weekend. Stay tune for more albums to come in the future!


The Irregular at Magic High School Film Gets New Trailer Just Before Release

To support the impending release of the film adaptation to The Irregular at Magic High School (or Mahōka Kōkō no Rettōsei), The Irregular at Magic High School: The Movie ~The Girl Who Calls the Stars~, Aniplex has published a new trailer for the film on the official Aniplex YouTube page. The longform trailer features the film’s theme by GARNIDELiA, “Speed Star”. Unfortunately, at the time of posting, neither the trailer nor the Aniplex Japan YouTube page are accessible from the US (where I’m writing this piece.) Fortunately, I did find a mirror. You can check out the new trailer below: The Irregular at Magic High School: The Movie ~The Girl Who Calls the Stars~ is slated to...


Blame! Anime Movie Review

Having read the Blame! manga, I was incredibly excited to see the film finally launch on Netflix over the past weekend. However, after almost two hours, I had a lot of mixed feelings after my viewing experience. Before we dive in, I have to mention that this review contains spoilers to the movie and the manga (up until volume 3). You have been warned. Blame! has a lot going for it; a crazy setting, great action, ultra-violence to back up said action, and a solid soundtrack. The problem with the film is they didn’t add enough of all the things that make the manga as entertaining as it is. In my opinion, Blame! is...

Flying Witch Volume 1 Review

The comforting warmth and peace prevalent in The Flying Witch is exactly what I expect from a slice of life manga. The unbound sincerity coupled with the slow pace is what I imagine what life would be like in a quiet rural town, which, Flying Witch captures perfectly. The experience of reading Flying Witch is almost like laying in a bed of flowers, surrounded by bunnies in an open field on the most beautiful Spring day. Life in the country can get a bit dull, but what better way to have some fun than by throwing in some MAGIC! The story follows Makoto Kowata, a young girl who has “come into age”...


The Tamago Poster – Your Guide to the Various Uses of the Egg

Occasionally we receive requests from various kickstarters to feature products. To be honest, most of the time we ignore them. However, on the very few occasions one does pique our interest we feel the need to mention something about it. A while back we introduced Fanny Chu, a foodie based in California who is currently on a quest to find the best food within Asian culture and to educate everyone in a fun and visual manner. She has compiled and designed several posters (which have all been successful on Kickstarter) that highlight these various foods and classifications. Of the ones we have seen, she has done one on where she thinks the...
