When I recently picked up and finished the officially translated version of Strobe Edge Volume 9, it left me in one of those really bad awkward cliffhanger moments… and usually I’m really good with those because I have enough patience … Continue reading

Hello everyone! As we draw near the last hours of August, we finish off the summer holidays month with this last quickie blurb review of all the panels I attended at FanExpo this year. Many of the larger panels actually have their own feature post and should all be linked into the panel titles. Now, without further ado…
Lolita Style and Fashion Panel- It was technically my first panel because the Anime AMV panel on Thursday was cancelled. I’ve been dabbling into Lolita fashion lightly and carefully. I wanted to balance the Lolita style with my usual casual every day style and create a look that was really me. I got lot of great tips for rocking the different Lolita aesthetic. Overall, I woul this panel would be really great for beginner Lolita girls.
Viz Media Panel- About a third of all my manga is published from Viz Media. Series like Ouran High School Host Club, Backstage Prince, Dawn of the Arcana, Demon Love Spell, Happy Marriage, Strobe Edge… the list goes on! If you guys want the details on this panel, please check out my Viz Media panel feature post!
Anime According to AMVs- This was really the first time I went to an AMVs themed panel and it sure made up for the one that was cancelled the day before. It was just a blast! It’s great to sit in a room with a bunch of people who love the same shows and the same characters as you. You learn about some new animes and get to laugh at some hilarious music videos as well!
Pro Author Panel – Epic World Building & Magic- A panel featuring Leslie Young, A.M. Dellamonica, Violette Malan and Linda Poitevin, they were all such wonderful and witty speakers. Ms. Malan had to be my favourite panelist. She gave such great advice and I was in awe at how knowledgeable she was.
Comic Book Law – What Creators Need to Know- A really information and professional panel. It’s a basic and simple break-down of copyright, trademark and all the legal issues that come with your ownership of your characters, ideas, and so on.
Anime Music Video Gameshow- Super fun and interactive, prizes all around and even a penalty box. All anime fans should go watch and play.
Please leave a comment if there are any problems with the links or use the search bar to find what you’re looking for. Thank you guys so much for reading and I will talk to you all very soon!
What are you pondering today?
Hey guys! I had the pleasure of attending the Viz Media panel at Fan Expo this year and I got a lot of great news. I’m super excited for the new manga official translations coming soon. I’ve been waiting on Nisekoi for a while. Once that’s out, I can’t wait to review that for you guys! A lot of classics are coming back as well so be sure to be on the lookout for those!
New Manga Volume Releases
Gansta (February 18, 2014)- If you guys are into dark and nitty gritty urban stories, this is the manga to read. It takes place in a city called Ergastulum full of thieves and criminals. The main characters, Worick Arcangelo and Nicolas Brown are known as the Handymen who take the jobs no else will touch. Things take a twist when they a cop on the force requests the Handymen to target the top Mafia family…
Nisekoi: False Love (January 7, 2014)- A super cute and fun series currently available in digital copy from Viz Media. It’s kind of like Romeo and Juliet, but the opposite where a truce is kept between both Yakuza gangs as long as the son and daughter of each respective side can date. LOL
Deadman Wonderland (Feb 11, 2014)- This series was originally produced by Tokypop and was recently transferred to Viz Media. Deadman Wonderland is an action packed, supernatural, suspenseful almost post-apocalyptic story. (It’s complicated and it’s a lot of things). If you’re into horror and fantasy and dark stories, go ahead and give this one a try.
Art of Princess Mononoke (May 2014)- Calling all Studio Ghibli fans! The art book of Princess Mononoke is coming out soon. Be sure to check stores in May so you can get your copy of the beautiful art!
One Piece Box Set (Volumes 1-23) East Blue and Baroque Arcs- An interesting start to the super long series but I wonder how many box sets we’ll have to wait for to get the ENTIRE series out.
New Manga Series:
One Punch Man– By the illustrator and publisher of Eyeshield 21 and currently serialized in Shonen Jump, it follows a hero that basically defeats all his foes with one punch
World Trigger- Feel like reading about galactic warriors? Want some science fiction for a change of pace? Check out this series!
Jaco the Galactic Patrolman- Currently serialized in Shonen Jump, you can sort of discern the the general themes and ideas in the series from the name.
