On other Whiskey Media sites I've been doing wrap ups of Movies I've watched and comic books I've read. Well here on Anime Vice I'm going to change it up a bit...
I am trying a lot to contribute to this site as much as I do to the others, but I don't watch as much anime as before, and most of my money goes on comics rather than Manga. So I decided to add it all up into a Blog post so you all can see what I've been up to Anime Vice-wise...

Manga

Kingdom Hearts Vol 1

Kingdom Hearts Vol. 1 
by Shiro Amano

I read this manga originally a few years back, and when I was into the video game KH craze (believe me it was worse before) so I took this old manga out of my bookcase and re-read it, so then I thought about it and decided to review it here on the site. I found it funny that this time around as I read it I found that the adaptation was not as great as when I first read it, because I realized that the seriousness was taken away to an extreme. 
So, be sure to read my review on this KH adaptation of My Favorite Video Game Adapted into a Comedy.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya 
Season 1 Episode 2 - The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya I
FUNimation 
This is one of my favorite anime series and I've watched every episode except The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya movie. Today I was bored and decided to watch the first episode (or the second rather... it's all very confusing) again. So, I reviewed it and ended with an "I'm Intrigued!" expression. Be sure to check out the Review!

The Last Airbender (2010)
Cost: $5 
Boy do I regret watching this movie! I am a huge fan of the Avatar: The Last Airbender series and like all of those who read the book then watch the movie, by the end you have some complaints. Well I had more complaints than the complaint box at Avon! M Night Shyamalan has lost his sense of movie-making completely. Not only that but I had to endure the movie with bad Dubbing into Spanish because there were no screenings in English! I will admit that the movie had great CGI scenes with all the elements but the whole movie's pace was so slow that even the climatic event of the movie was horribly dull for my taste. The acting was not bad at all but the story was horrible and did not follow the series for the exception of the first 10 minutes of the movie. I thought I was able to get past all of the things that were going to be changes and that I knew was going to be changed but in no way that was possible!

 Bakuman: One of the Anime I am the most interested in for this Fall!
I don't know if you know this, but even us users of Anime VIce can submit an Article for the front page. Well I submitted one: 2010 Anime Fall Season Preview 
I noticed that the site was in need of new material and stumbled upon the Anime Fall Preview somewhere on the internet. So I went on an anime hunt on the the internet through various anime -related sites and it took about 2 or 3 days to find images for every anime, a plot description for every anime and as many trailers as I could find.
I hope you've seen it and you have commented on it!
If not... what are you still doing here?!?!

This new Trailer gave me goosebumps... and you gotta love Mickey's line in this video! :)
 
 
I realized after watching this trailer that the story is a lot more complex that what I thought...
Opinions?

Bandai Entertainment just posted a YouTube video where: " Minori Chihara (The voice of Yuki Nagato) speak about " The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya" "
Just thought I should share it with everyone...  
 
 
I'm intrigued by what the video at the end said... "Please stay tuned for another message from Minori Chihara shortly" I wonder what it could be?
So this video is basically a way to announce that Minori will be at the New York Anime Festival this October... are you going?
If so will you get me her autograph?

I seriously hope it is a s good as it looks... September 7th we get to play it for ourselves... excited?

In the same manner that Kingdom Hears Re:Chain of Memories brought Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories from the Game Boy Advance to the Play Station 2 platform, KH Re:Coded is a remake of the NTT DoCoMo game for Nintendo DS in English.
During E3 2010 a trailer of the game was shown which today was made available to watch on the internet.
 
 
The plot of this game is based on the events that take place after KH2 following the story of Jiminy Cricket, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy as they uncover a mystery found in the Jiminy's journal. Jiminy's curiosity about the line "Thank Naminé" in his journal results in him finding a message that he did not write: "Their hurting will be mended when you return to end it". 
By recreating a Sora clone out of data, they must figure out what the entry in the journal meant, which then means they must retrace their steps into uncovering this mystery in 8 different chapters of similar gameplay to that of the KH 358/2 Days game.
 
Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded will be released in North America, Europe and Japan on the Nintendo DS by the end of this year.

So what do you think?
Will you continue to see what's in store for the KH franchise?
