Welcome everyone! Every anime season, I take up new wiki projects. These are the projects I'm working on. I mainly work on episode summaries first and then the characters. I complete the episode summaries for 90% of my projects, but for the characters, I do about half of them. I usually run out of time for the characters at the end of the season.
|1. Free! Iwatobi Swim Club|
I try this show because I wanted something different. Everyone calls it gay, but I don't think it's gay. It's a show whose fan service is for girls. Okay, I admit it's gay, but I love the show. It's fun to watch some girl swooning over pecs and triceps and guys who just strip to their swim trunks every time they are near a body of water.
I'm up to speed with the summaries. Still need to do some image stuff.
|2. Silver Spoon|
I'm not the biggest slice of life fan. My 1st was Sket Dance, but I don't call it a true slice of fan. I say Tari Tari was my 1st. I tried this anime because it's created by Hiromu Arakawa, the author of my favorite manga series, Fullmetal Alchemist.
I still haven't got started on it.
|3. Sunday Without God|
The premise of Gravekeepers, silvered hair bad boys, and cute lolis got me to tried this show. To be honest, I was confused with the first episode. I'm still hooked on the series.
|4. Danganronpa: The Academy of Hope and the High School Students of Despair|
As Sonata quoted one dude, it's a crossover between Phoenix Wright and Battle Royale. The gaming element reminds me of Btooom! Sonata got me in the show. I'm loving the dark humor in it.
Did the first episode summary while my teammate, Sonata, added all of the characters. Sonata was a beast.
Attack on Titan is my only one. I'm up to speed with the summaries. I still need to work on the characters and transfer episode shots.
I There were my Spring 2013 projects. Only Gargantia, Valvrave, and Oreimo 2 were team projects. I worked with Acura Max, an awesome guy from Screened. He and I complete the summaries in Gargantia and Valvrave. We were an unstoppable duo. As for Oreimo 2, Daniel was my partner. He worked on the character pages and acted like a supervisor to me. I did the episode summaries.
|1. Oreimo 2|
I also finished the Oreimo Season 1's True Route episode summaries.
|2. Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet|
Acura Max and I got all summaries done. For the characters, we got appearance and relationship stuff. Story arcs are going to be weird.
|3. Valvrave the Liberator|
Acura Max and I were on this project, too. It's the same for Gargantia, but the character pages for Valvrave are more complete since some characters died. It was doing the deceased character pages.
|4. The Devil is a Part-Timer!|
|5. The Severing Crime Edge|
Hello everyone! This is the second part. If you're interested in the first part, please see this link. I'll keep this blog short since I was originally going to transcribe the entire audio recording for Eric Vale, Kodansha panel, Blue Exorcist event, and the Fakku! panel. Though, I was insane that I can do a whole transcript about an hour or so for these events. What I did was summarize the events and look for ways to install the MP3 in the blog.
On July 5, it was a busy Saturday. My sis and I didn't get to attend the Kyle Hebert panel in the morning. We just killed time in the exhibition booth area in the South Lobby. I bump into another old friend from college. He introduced me to Little Kuriboh, Martin Billany. I didn't know he was at Anime Expo. I got a cool poster autographed by him. This is my first autograph from a cool guy at Anime Expo.
At 12:00 or so, my sister and I line up for the Blue Exorcist panel since my sister is a biggest Blue Exorcist fan. Plus, I missed the movie, so this is to make it up to her after the first day. Yesterday, I left my little sister in the Blue Exorcist line to meet up with Tom Pinchuk when her classmate ran into us in line. Unfortunately, the staff caught my sister's friend. As a result, my little sister watch the movie by herself.
For the panel, it was divided into parts.
For the Bad Anime Reactions, it's not going to be on DVDs and Blu-Rays. It's one of those special once of a life time things. I loved the last two parts the most.
|Bryce voiced Rin Okumura. My first impressions was that he was a cool guy.|
|Johnny voiced Yukio Okumura. He was the life of the party in the panel. He and his spiritual burritos rock the whole house.|
|Christine voiced Shiemi Moriyama. I expected Shura's voice actress, Wendee, to be dirty like her character. Christine was naughty. She just answered questions in the Exwire Qualification Test with boobs and such.|
|Kira voiced Izumo Kamiki. Loved her acting when she spoke in Izumo's voice and did a bit of tsundere thing with Johnny.|
|Wendee voiced Shura. She was pretty quiet compared to her character. I dig her deep voice.|
|Stephanie voiced Kuro. The audience was captivated by her voice for Kuro. When she meowed, everyone went "aw."|
|Kyle voiced Ryuji. He was a beast in the panel that kept Johnny at bay.|
After escorting my little sister home, I managed to get to the Kodansha panel at 7 PM. Ben Applegate is the host along with a Japanese person. (I forgot her name, but I will add it when I go over the audio recording.) I did a separate blog for this section. What Ben and his staff did was to introduce popular manga series (Attack on Titan, Fairy Tail, and Sailor Moon) and incoming manga series (Sherlock Bones, Vinland Saga, No. 6, and Sankarea). Most manga series will be available for digital ebooks except for Sailor Moon. Then, Kodansha went into a Q & A session. I cover most of this part (I will complete it soon) in the Kodansha blog.
I was sad that I couldn't make it to the Project-H panel at 8:30 PM. The reason why I wanted to attend the Project-H panel was to meet Yoko, a sales representative, and thank her. I met her on Twitter and found out she was Gia's friend. She and I talked about hentai and promoting the work on Anime Vice. Being a wiki editor, I took the role and added most of manga from Project-H books. I had help from PikaHyper, a mod from Comic Vine. Though, I should have expected it since lines start up usually an hour or two prior to a panel. I made a quick change and attend the Fakku! panel. It started around 9:22, a bit late, since it was supposed to be 9PM. I wasn't annoyed. During that time, I got to met someone and recommended him, Sword Art Online and Attack on Titan, in the line. For the panel, they showcased the top hentai titles to watch. It's more comedic to hear the audio recording. It was the second funniest panel on my last day for Anime Expo. Blue Exorcist was the funnest for me, personally.
Here are the top hentai shows. Jacob and his staff didn't show animated clips of sexual intercourse. It was a slideshow where Jacob and staff did some improv. It was hilarious. I have not heard of any of the series except for Stringendo, Sora no Mizu, and Another Lady Innocent.
|The first one is Miyazaki Maya Daizukan. It was the most bizarre hentai title because of the bicycle fairy and the gullible school girl. The bicycle fairy tricks the school girl into having sex with him. What was hilarious about this one was Jacob's take on the show.|
|School I is about three school girls who want to get in the pants of this one guy after hearing him having sex with a teacher over the intercom. The guy tries to get away from the girls. He was more into his lunch and getting down the ladies. Though, he gives in and has coitus with the third girl. The hilarious scenes are how the girls knock themselves out while the boy runs away to eat his lunch in peace.|
|Kansen is about a virus that turns human beings into sex craved zombies. I thought it meant literally zombies. No, these sex fiends look normal which I like. I wouldn't like undead raping people. That would be nasty to watch.|
|This show has some awkward sex scenes. Jacob and his staff talked about the girls are so oblivious to a couple having sex in the locker room.|
|This is a Netorare show. Jacob and his staff poke fun at the poor man who doesn't know that his beloved wife is cheating with another man (against her will). Jacob doesn't know why he chose this title. He does point out how the sex scenes keep showing pictures of the married couple just rub the NTR theme.|
|It's a story about two lovers and a maid. Set in the Civil War in America, Faye, Carson's daughter, comes home where she finds out her maid, Sophia, has been taking "care" of John, their best friend. When things take a delightful turn where Faye experiences love, a powerful man named Lord Mark has his eyes on Faye.|
Jacob pointed out some humorous things: maids are not covering their boobs and private parts, John's body, how the nipples are drawn beautifully, and Faye's scene where she hugs her father who is having coitus with a maid.
|I don't know the name of the episode or particular series in the Stringendo franchise. Jacob and his staff pick this one scene where the girl who loves one boy drags him into her apartment. She and the boy make love until her father comes home. After she cooks a meal for her father, she and the boy continue their mating ritual in the bedroom. When the father comes up, she kicks the guy out of the window.|
Jacob's joke revolved around making "pasta" if you know what I mean.
Thank you everyone for reading this blog. I hope you guys and gals get a chance to visit your first con.
Hello everyone! This is a summary of the Kodansha panel at Anime Expo, July 5th at 7PM. I thought I can transcribe an hour of audio recording, but it seems insane. I tried another method to put the whole audio recording here, but I didn't find a trustworthy site. If you want to hear the actual audio recording, I have a dropbox account that I used for school. Just PM me your email, and I'll send a dropbox invite.
Here is a report on the Kodansha panel!
Hosted by Ben Applegate.
The panel starts off with an Attack on Titan trailer. Then, Ben and the rest of Kodansha panel are proud to present a list of manga series that they are proud to release this year. Ben Applegate and his staff announce that Kodansha is going into e-books while Nook, Google, Kindle, and Apple Library. However, Kodansha cannot get everything into the e-books such as Sailor Moon due to licensing issues. Then, Ben and his staff state that they are doing a manga acceleration, one volume per month for Attack on Titan and Fairy Tail, to catch up to the Japanese releases. One of the manga series that Ben is excited is called Vinland Saga. The seies is coming out October 8. He and his staff are splitting Vinland Saga's original tankobon in smaller chunks for the North American Release.
[Will fill in later...]
Note: I haven't completed the section. It's a big section. I will complete this section by tomorrow. Sorry for the inconvenience. It's been hard to hear some of the questions in the audio recorder because the audience don't have access to a microphone. I'll go over the audio recording and proofread the sections below. Below here, is a few stuff I jot down in my notebook.
|Humankind is down to just a few thousand people who live in a city surrounded by three concentric walls. The walls protect them from their enemies, the ravenous giants known as the Titans. The Titans appear to have only one purpose: to consume humanity. For one hundred years, what's left of mankind has lived in the city on earth, protected by walls that tower over even the Titans. Untouched by the Titans for a century, humanity has become complacent. But Eren Jaeger has had enough. While his fellow citizens are content to hide, Jaeger has the passion to take action to not only protect the city, but to learn what the Titans actually are. On his first mission he comes face to face with horrors beyond his imagination... and secrets from his own past that could shift the tides of war.|
|Lucy is a 17-year-old girl, who wants to join a mage guild to become a full-fledged mage. One day when visiting Harujion Town, she meets Natsu (and his talking cat Happy), a young man who is looking for the salamander and who helps her get out of a sticky situation. That’s when she find out that Natsu not only is a mage, but is also a member of one of the world’s most infamous mage guilds: Fairy Tail.|
|The manga reincarnates the famous fictional detective Sherlock Holmes as a talking dog named Sherdock. The detective dog solves mysterious crimes with an ordinary high school boy named Takeru Wajima.|
|Since he was little, Chihiro has felt an unusual emotional connection to zombie movies. It’s not that he feels bad for the survivors – instead he fantasizes about comforting the poor undead girls they slaughter! When his beloved pet passes away, he decides to brew up a resurrection potion in secret. But he’s discovered by popular girl and local heiress Sanka Rea, whose life isn’t as perfect as it seems… and Furuya suggests that she could serve as a test subject!|
|Thorfinn is son to one of the Viking's greatest warriors, but when his father is killed in battle by the mercenary leader Askeladd, he swears his intent to have revenge. Thorfinn joins Askeladd's group in order to challenge him to a duel, and ends up caught in the middle of a war for the crown of England.|
|Nozomu Itoshiki, a very pessimistic high school teacher, tries to hang himself on a cherry blossom tree. Despite his best efforts, he is saved by a very optimistic girl known as Kafuka Fūra. She explains to him that it is simply unforgivable to hang himself on a day such a nice day, especially in front of such beautiful trees. She decides to nickname Nozomu "Pink Supervisor", offering to pay him fifty yen to do so. After having enough of the strange girl, Nozomu bolts to the school and starts his homeroom class, but the attempt was in vain as he finds that the girl is one of his students.|

Welcome everyone! I'm sharing my first anime convention experiences. It's a wild, crazy day that made me glad and regret that I'm visiting Anime Expo today.
All names are changed except Tom's to protect them.
It was July 5th, a beautiful day in Los Angeles. I had everything planned out for my sis and me. Taking off from the Metro station at around 10AM, it was a sight to behold when you have a large group of people marching towards the South Lobby. Out in front was a large tank prop where school girls with toy guns were posing on it (Girls und Panzer). During the morning, my little sister and I explored the booths to check out the merchandise, the cosplayers & artists, and the free stuff. One interesting booth had the Megami Magazine and Nyantype Magazines. I did buy my little sister a Fire Emblem Awakening Art book, the Knights of Iris art book that is illustrated by Yusuke Kozaki. At some point, my little sister told me that she wanted to check out a booth alone. I thought it was the super cute Moe par or My Little Pony since she doesn't want to embarrass me. After setting up a meeting at the Maple Story booth, I head out to buy something for my little brother and the family. Then, I stumbled upon the Project-H booth in the 300 aisle. Recalling my meeting with Gia's friend on Twitter, I thought I stop on by and say hi to Yoko. However, I had to think since I'm going inside a booth that sells hentai. Someone might see me. I look around and notice a blonde woman who looked familiar. Though, I doubt she is someone I know since I can't get a look at her eyes under those big sunglasses and Luffy's hat. After getting inside, the cashier ladies comment how I look like a high school boy. I was sad that Yoko wasn't here. They told me she will be at the panel tomorrow night at 8:30PM.
As soon as I exit the booth quickly, the same blonde woman halted me. It turns out she is my childhood friend from Church (let's call her Rachel). I'm so screwed. Her boyfriend, John, was shocked that I was an anime fan and more importantly, a fan of erotic manta. Yet, he was happy when he dragged me into the booth to buy hentai manga. Rachel was appalled about John and my interests in hentai manga, but she was relieved that she doesn't have to go inside to buy hentai with John. Even though I did give into John's peer pressure, things were not looking good. John, Rachel, and I meet my little sister at the Maple Story booth. When my little sister asked me what I bought, I revealed Finn, Black Butler Vol. 13, Yotsuba&! Vol. 8 & 9, and Blood-C Vol. 1-2. Thus, my alibi is created. Then, John had to pull out the black bag underneath my underarm and reveal the naughty manga along with his. (John's taste is a bit kinkier. See How to Make Him My Master) My little sister, who remained silent and composed, confessed that she bought some yaoi doujinshi. Rachel exclaims how my pervertedness has tainted my sister's innocence. After her "like brother, like sister" remark, it reminded me of Oreimo in some degree.
Later, Rachel, John, my little sister, and I take a trip around the convention for a bit of exploration. One of the most extreme cosplay was a man dressed in only briefs with a Fairy Tail stamp, Gray Fullbuster. The man didn't get through when the staff told him to go home and put some pants on. While John was taking pictures like a madman, I was too shy. I only took 2 photos. I find the Ice Climbers photo very cute. Along the way to the West Hall to find out where the panels were, I tripped on a guy's red cape exiting the escalators. I bruised my leg while the guy fell on his back. I should have been more careful. I felt bad for the guy I tripped.
After exploring around the convention with John, Rachel, and my sis (getting lost at the same time), Rachel and John had to leave to take care of errands. I let my sis pick the next destination. She chose attend the Blue Exorcist movie premiere that was located in Room 403 at around 3:30PM. Unfortunately, I wanted to attend the Right Stuf panel, so I have some industry news to report for Anime Vice. Yet, I couldn't leave my little sister alone for work. I forgot that I'm here to relax. The lines for the movie started early as 2PM while it became longer. I was bored out of mine while waiting. For my little sister, she found a guy, Nick from Oklahoma, near her playing Animal Crossing New Leaf. The two chat a lot about their games and street passes. That was one of the things I noticed in the booths. A lot of folks were walking with their 3DS out. I found out Nick and I were Attack on Titan fans. Nick was more ahead in the manga. He wanted to meet George Wada, producer of Attack on Titan, and Noizi Ito. At some point, I asked Nick if I can check Twitter since my phone does not have internet access. I found out that Tom wants to meet me up at Viz Media booth around 4:30PM. I faced a decision to abandon my little sister to meet up with Tom Pinchuk. Somehow, my little sister's friend found us. I told my sis's friend that I'm giving my spot for her. I figured they have a great time at the Blue Exorcist film screening. I head out to find Tom.
@Takashichea We're probably going to be around the VIZ booth at 4:30 or so. See you there?— Tom Pinchuk (@TomPinchuk) July 5, 2013
Arriving to the Viz Media, I had to ask someone to use their phone to reply at Tom with some hint of my character. All I can think is my shirt and backpack color. At last, the man of the hour, Tom Pinchuk, has arrived. While Tom chats with his friend who worked the Neon Alley booth, I was filling out the Neon Alley survey. Tom spoke with me and thanked me and my teammates for their hard work in doing the seasonal guides (See Summer 2013 Anime Guide - - AV MOD MATERIAL) and the Quick Picks. He said that he encourages all users to hit him up with a PM if they want to post some cool ideas. I talked about how Daniel Newton came up cool ideas such as the polls and caption contests. I couldn't think outside of the box like Daniel does. Tom told me to take some risks. After his pep talk, he went back to talk with his friend. During those long 2 or 3 minutes, I was thinking questions to ask my hero. Recalling the recent Vice Pit episodes, I already knew how Tom got into Anime Vice as a staff and his books. I haven't read Hybrid Bastards, Tom's comic book. I can't ask him about the book. All I could ask was, "How was Sam?" In my head, I mentally slap myself for not asking in depth question. It turns out I missed Sam. He was at AX on July 4th.
The photo of Tom and I flexing our biceps was the coolest thing I got in my first con. Afterwards, I tried to get in line for Vic Mignogna, but the line was extremely long.
I jumped out of the line to do the last thing on the agenda. The last thing I planned to attend with my little sister was Eric Vale's Guest of Honor panel. Though, my plans didn't go well. My little sister was still at the Blue Exorcist screening while the lines for Eric Vale is packed about 200 people or so. I was in the last 2 lines. Luckily, I got in the panel. I felt bad for the folks behind me. They had to cut them off. Somehow, my camera's batteries died out. I recalled that my sister had all my spare batteries with her. I took my notebook, and I discovered that I had my digital recorder for school usage. I thought I took out everything from my backpack. I decided to use the digital recorder. More bad luck ensued, it turns out I ran out of memory. I had tons of lecture audio recordings. I didn't delete the old ones. The recording stops before the last question.
Here is a quick list of questions and answers that I summarized. I have an MP3 saved if you're interested.
(I will rewrite the questions and answers to fit the audio. Right now, I'm a bit busy)
I have uploaded the MP3 on DropBox. It's a website that is free if you're using the 2.5 Gigabytes storage. I just need your email, and I'll email you the link via Dropbox invitation.
Going back home, I found out my little sister watched the movie by herself since the staff caught her friend cutting in line. I was a bit sad, but I was glad she enjoyed the movie. She told me it was way better than Fairy Tail and Naruto's 1st movies.
Thank you for reading this. I encouraged you guys and gals to visit an anime convention at least once. It's a great experience. Well for me, it's up and down. I learn my lessons for the first day.
