Heading to NYAF

It’s been a while without an update from me.  Unfortunately things have been busy, but I did want to mention one thing, before it comes and goes without me even saying it.  I’m heading (slightly) south this weekend to go to the NY Anime Festival.

This will be my first “con” experience, and I’m looking forward to it.  Of course, I’ll be sure to take a ton of pictures and give an update on what happened when I get back.  But, if you are going to be there as well send me a note (in the comments or shoot me an e-mail to brandon[at]greengelstudios.com.)

More to come next week, after the big event is done.  If you’ve got any questions or suggestions I’m open to that too, just leave a comment and I’ll try to answer it next week.

Following that the regularly scheduled anime updates will continue.

Love Hina Again

As I mentioned in my last post I am a fan of Love Hina. I’ve had the series collection of 24 episodes for several years and have watched it numerous times, but I only recently picked up the set of three movie sequels to the series. Given that the series ending gives no real resolution to the series picking up the movies is long, long overdue.

Giant Robots, Gratuitous Shower Scenes, and Law 31

Love Hina Group ShotWell, what should I say?  I think the title may give it away but if not, I’m here to write about anime.  I’d love to sit here and write out a long (and beautifully written I might add) post about how I came to be an anime fan, where it all started, and when, but frankly I don’t think any of you could read it without actually becoming catatonic, so I’ll just go with the short version.

I saw my first anime on a Saturday morning when I was young enough that I don’t remember how old I actually was.  It’s a fair guess that I was probably just entering the double digit ages though.  That anime happened to be Sailor Moon.  I’m only mildly ashamed now to say that I was hooked after seeing only one episode (and it was most certainly not the first episode of the series either.)  From then on I would always try to catch the show each week.

Not long after being introduced to the Sailor girls they were moved to showing every weekday morning, following DragonBall Z, my second, and longer lasting obsession with anime began there, each morning before school. Continue reading

Be our guest.

Taking a cue from the bovine blogger (John Cow) I’m considering the possibility of accepting guest posts. While I have nowhere near the influence of that inspirational parody (based on John Chow) site, I thought it might be a good way for fan bloggers to write about stuff outside their niche. I won’t burden you with a post a week either. ;)

An example.

Let’s say you write an anime blog. You’re also a fan of Harry Potter and have a great idea for a blog post. You don’t have an HP blog, and don’t really want to start one just for this post. You can’t really post your Harry Potter theory on your anime blog, that’d be way off topic.

That’s where I can help. I’ll post your HP theory, with a small author bio you write. You can include links and a photo if you like. You won’t have an HP post sticking out like a sore thumb, and you’ll get linked from here.

This could help readers of both sites find stuff they’re interested in.

Don’t have a blog? That’s fine, you don’t need a blog to write a guest post. If you have something you’d like to write, go ahead and let me know.

I’m setting up the contact form for a test run. If it doesn’t work out and I decide not to do this, I’ll let you know. Right now I can’t foresee why I’d need to stop this. Other than depression that no one submitted any ideas. :(

If you’d like make a guest post, just use the contact form. For your Contact Reason select “Submit guest post idea”. Then just send me your idea. Easy as can be.
