Panty & Stocking With Garterbelt (2010)

Once in a great while a groundbreaking work of art reveals itself, each often revolutionizing the way art is interpreted.

It can come in a variety of different forms, such as Di Vinci’s Mona Lisa or Van Gogh’s Starry Night, to Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby or Orwell’s 1984, to even Hideaki Anno’s Neon Genesis Evangelion. We can easily agree that all of these are very unique to one another in their own right, yet all are great pieces of art expressing ideas and emotions beyond belief. Artists aren’t afraid to cross lines or push boundaries for the sake of their work, and they must throw larger stones to make bigger splashes. Sometimes brilliance comes from very unexpected places. In 2010, a new masterpiece was unveiled in the form of a gag anime by the name of Panty & Stocking With Garterbelt.

Diebuster review

I don't do much anime series and Oav reviews, but once in a while I'd like to hint at some of the missed out modern "classics". Diebuster fits that description rather well.

Diebuster is the Oav sequel based on Hideaki Anno's original Gunbuster series. Considering the impact of the original it's hard to image how incredibly overlooked this 6-part Oav follow-up series is. Tsurumaki is the one bringing the 15-year old original back to modern standards, completely in the spirit of Gainax, and doing a pretty great job at that.

Gunbuster is the series that kick-started Anno's career. An important event in the history of anime, as he would later go on to direct Evangelion. At the same time, it marks the rise of legendary anime studio Gainax. The original is a series that still stands its ground today, but is somewhat unknown among younger anime fans.

FUNimation announces Flcl (Fooly Cooly) on Blu-ray Disc for 2010

Us anime-market leader FUNimation is currently having a “roll-out riot” and is announcing more and more titles for the upcoming months. Yesterday they announced the Us release of Kamui Gaiden and RoboGeisha on their official blog, but without mentioning a specific date or medium.

Today, after some rumbling of disappointed fans who expected more fine animation from Japan, they surprised them by announcing the acquirement of the Ova series Flcl (Fooly Cooly) for a DVD and Blu-ray Disc release in late 2010. The series was produced by Production I.G, Gainax and Starchild in 2000 and was directed by Kazuya Tsurumaki (Gunbuster, Rebuild of Evangelion 1.0 & 2.0).

Because of the way the six episodes of Flcl were produced, this will most likely be another upscale, so looking at FUNimation’s recent releases I’ll wait for proper reviews before ordering this…even thou I don’t own the series on DVD yet.

Starlog Report: Anime Expo [Ax] 2009

  • Starlog
Though I’ve seen the Anime Expo advertisements on buses in years past, 2009 is the first year I’ve ever attended. While aspects made it sound like a good time to be had, the prospect of wading through a sea of smelly, poorly costumed cosplayers (some of whom were sure to be men as characters of the opposite gender) wasn’t especially appealing to me. It all seemed some barbaric gathering of people with low artistic standards and strange rituals.

Enter a friend of mine who shall be nameless for the moment. After his bringing up the upcoming Anime Expo, I got a tad nervous at the idea of actually going for once. Yet, my spirit of adventure and curiosity about the art of anime (my interest had laid dormant since the day I decided to stop liking Pokemon) wrung from me a final verdict of “Why not?” Moe enthusiasts and yaoi fangirls aside,
