Supipara is a kinetic-style Visual Novel from developer Minori that focuses on a highschool student named Yukinari Sanada that has returned home to his hometown of Kamakura City due to his mother coming out of a multi-year coma. Much like any Japanese developed Visual Novel, Supipara has all of the bells-and-whistles of voice acting, animations and a fun story. Is this for everyone? Maybe. There are a few themes that only older audiences could appreciate to the fullest. The story in Supipara begins with Yukinari arriving into his hometown of Kamakura City and meeting with his rather strange cousin, Sakura. While here, we quickly learn that their relationship is kinda strange in that Yukinari used to live with Sakura briefly … Continue reading
This years Sydney Manga and Anime Show!, or SMASH!, convention has come and gone. Once again, this year, SMASH! has proven itself to be the best convention out of all the ones that I have been to at the very least. What was there to do? What wasn’t there to do? Read on for my adventure. The day began with my the entrance to the convention, a convention held at the remarkable Rosehill Racecourse and its multiple buildings. These buildings make things so much easier on a navigation scale, because you know that each building has a particular purpose. However, the first building that I, and a friend, checked out was the Vendor Hall. Conveniently located at the first building. … Continue reading
Over the weekend at the Sydney Manga and Anime Show!, or SMASH!, convention, the well know Vocaloid DJ and Producer, Hachioji-P, held a Q&A panel. This panel had questions posed from both the audience and the hosts, and proved to be quite an interesting thing to participate in. Hachioji-P, or Eight Prince, answered a lot of questions during the panel. The most important questions of the panel revolved around his career and insights into the Vocaloid scene in Japan. Although he did talk about himself personally a little too. For example, he was asked about some of the steps he takes to make music, to which he answered: “You have to start with something that inspires you, which could be … Continue reading

“My name is Nonoka Ai, please call me Aipon. A. I . P. O. N.” This was going to be a fun panel, I could tell. Nonoka Ai, the voice actress known for a few roles, but probably most predominantly as Kyoko from Madoka Magica. Straight out of the door were some interesting questions like why she wanted to become a voice actress, which she responded that she wanted to meet YuYu Hakusho. There was another question where she was asked about some excersises she does for her voice, to which she responded that she doesn’t drink and goes to sleep early. She’s pretty energetic. The first Live Dubbing scene was a scene from Gintama. It was the highly energetic … Continue reading
At SMASH! this year, there was a screening of the upcoming Kingsglaive Final Fantasy XV film. The screening showcased 15 minutes of the film, which encompassed some pretty interesting moments.I’m not too sure if this was just the opening sequence, or a bunch of random points. The opening sequences showcased a dramatic opening battle between some evil looking dudes,a young Noctis and some blonde looking girl in a forest. It was very dramatic and had fire effects. After, it soon becomes 12 years later and there is an even bigger battle involving some cool looking dudes, monsters and what appears to be an Assassin’s Creed character. For some reason they are trying to breach a wall and lots of missiles … Continue reading
Today at the SMASH! 2016 convention, the voice actor most notable for their role as Itachi Uchiha in Naruto, Hideo Ishikawa, held a panel at the main stage. The panel began with a bit of a Q&A session for fans, and was then proceeded by a session of Live Dubbing where the voice actor read over some lines from a rather interesting scene from Naruto Shippudden. “I like to do other scenes, but this one felt much cooler!” he responded to a question about why he chose that particular scene. “That scene when he was young, I’m not good at acting when he is young.” After the crowd clapped, he was embarassed. “I am embarrassed.” He stated. After the Live … Continue reading
