    Bandai Announces Schedule for AX Filed under: stuff — 1:03 pm

    Bandai’s posted their schedule for Anime Expo and it looks pretty exciting. They’ll be announcing the english voice cast of Gurren Lagann and there will also be quite a few panels and signings. You can see more details here.

    It’s starting to get pretty exciting with AX less than a week away. Make sure you have your costumes done and ready to wear! The Anime Expo website has some videos on where to eat which I think will be of interest to every one attending. They can be found on the main page.

    Hope everyone doesn’t get too stressed out while getting ready! See you soon!

    Comic-Con Speculations Filed under: stuff — Tags: , , — 8:26 pm

    With Comic-Con coming up in about a month, a lot of people are getting anxious about what we’re going to be seeing. It is pretty much garunteed that there will be major panels on Star Trek, GI Joe, The Spirit, Star Wars: Clone Wars 2. It’s also rumored that there will be a screening of Fanboys, a film about Star Wars fans who journey to Skywalker Ranch to steal a copy of Episode 1: The Phantom Menace. A rough cut was shown at Celebration IV last year, so the final version will probably be shown at Comic-Con.

    Another speculative schedule has shown up, but this time for TV show panels. There seems to be a few scheduling issues on the list, such as major shows like the Sarah Connor Chronicles and Heroes panels being scheduled at the same time which is sure to disspoint quite a few fans. The rumored list can be seen here at G4.

    Please note, these are all speculations and there will be an update when Comic-Con International posts their programming schedule. There will be a link posted here as soon as it’s out.

    Anime Expo Announcements Filed under: stuff — 4:06 pm

    Just to throw it out there; the Batman event at AX is Gotham Knight, not Dark Knight. It’s going to be like what the Animatrix was for the Matrix. You can find more informaiton here.
    Another schedule attendee I’m excited about is Toshihiko Seki. He’s been the voice of: Sanzo from Saiyuki, Mouuse of Ranma 1/2, and Duo of Gundam Wing, among many others. (For a full list click here.) I’ll update again soon about the other guests-of-honor at AX this year.

    Royal/T Keeps to Itself Filed under: stuff — 4:07 pm

    When anime fans think of the Japanese anime mecca Akihabara, they’ll think of things like 4 story arcades, anime superstores, and maid cafes. The idea of a maid cafe in the US is pretty crazy; maid cafes go totally against political correctness and any feminist ideas people might have. But there is a light!
    Recently the maid cafe, Royal/T, opened in Culver City, CA. The front page of their web site says, “Royal/T is a playful collision of spaces – cafe/shop/art space – presented in stunning fusion. An eclectic mix of retail and contemporary art re-imagined in the surrounds of of LA’s first Japanese-style cosplay cafe.” Sounds pretty exciting, right? When I ventured to the store on April 13, the day after Royal/T’s grand opening, we thought it would be exciting too. A small group of gothic and sweet lolitas along with a few friends and I went to the store around 12 PM, two hours after the store/cafe/whatever it is was supposed to open only to be greeted with locked doors. Through the windows we could all see a full art gallery (featuring art by many international artists including Takashi Murakami, Ghada Amer among many others), a small cafe, and a small store. the inside of the building looked quite nice, but not a single one of us got to see the whole thing from our position on the sidewalk outside the door. After 30 minutes of waiting for the store to open, and calling numbers listed on the store’s website to see if they’d said something about opening late, we all decided to leave- but not before taking a few pictures. So, Royal/T, thank you for helping a few lolitas, cosplayers (your core customer base) and photographers waste their time. I can only hope that next time you decide to open late you leave a message of some sort on your voice mail, or even a post-it note on the door. PS- All the pictures can be found here.
