Otorimonogatari is the next chapter in the Monogatari Second Season as part of the Bakemonogatari franchise from SHAFT and released in Australia by Hanabee. This particular story in the series focuses on the character Nadeko, the younger friend of Koyomi’s sisters, who also happens to have a crush on him. This is one of the stories that focuses less on Koyomi, and more on the life of a side-character. This particular story is 4 episodes in length, which makes it about average for stories told in the Monogatari Second Season. The storyline in Otorimonogatari follows Nadeko, a shy girl that is friends with Koyomi’s younger sisters and first appeared in the Bakemonogatari story involving a curse with a snake spirit … Continue reading
Madoka Magica is probably one of the biggest anime franchises in the anime industry at the moment. While it isn’t the biggest in length or merchandise, it is certainly one of the biggest due to how it is received by anime fans, casual viewers and how almost everyone has an opinion on Madoka Magica. The series itself is a Magical Girl series, focusing a group of magical girls that hunt down witches to protect people from their harmful effects. However, unlike most Magical Girl series’, the Madoka Magica series is well known for its dark themes and a more realistic look at the effects of a Magical Girl on the world. Madoka Kaname is an ordinary highschool girl that soon … Continue reading
Cardfight!! Vanguard is the Anime series based on the Bushiroad card game of the same name. The series is a collaboration between the president of Bushiroad, the author of Yu-Gi-Oh! R and that one guy that worked on that one card game Anime series that was pretty terrible back in the mid 2000s, Duel Masters. This part of the series, part 4, focuses on the regional tournament of Japan, where our team of Vanguard players face off against some strong opponents and rather risky odds. This part follows directly after the third part of the series and is still following the first arc of the Cardfight!! Vanguard anime. Cardfight!! Vanguard follows the story of Aiichi Sendou and his team of … Continue reading
As we have previously written, we’ve been attending the Sydney Manga and Anime SHow!, or SMASH!, convention this weekend which was held at Rosehill Gardens. The convention itself is dedicated to the culture of Anime, Manga and other things Japanese, as well as the people that partake in that culture within Australia. This year is the first year that the show has been held across two days, and so it had a slightly more prolonged feel to it. Yesterday, The Consultant was in attendance at the event, today, was I! Anime Ninja! Kwacha! One of the first things we did at the show was check out all of the panels that we wanted to cover at the show. Fortunately for … Continue reading
This year at SMASH! Madman had a huge presence with a massive booth almost right near the entrance of the vendor hall, as well as hosting their Anime Lab video room for Anime screenings all weekend. As a part of their presence, Sly from Madman hosted a pretty cool panel on Madman’s current, and future lineup, as well as showcasing their new Anime Lab streaming service. There was also a Question and Answers segment, as well as a massive game of Janken, or Scissors-Paper-Rock as it is known here. Madman easily has a massive lineup of titles coming out in the coming months, such as Kill La Kill, Attack On Titan and many more sweet and interesting looking titles. Interestingly, … Continue reading
Earlier today at the SMASH! convention in Sydney was a Cosplay Props, Armour & 3D Printing panel where a group of cosplayers and prop designers– Jarrah Brouwer, Chris Wolfe, Newton Thaiposri and Kayla Erin– sat down and talked about making replica and prop armour and weapons and some of the techniques used to do so. The talk was incredibly interesting and the guys brought along a fair few of their creations to share around with the audience to showcase various materials and quality that they could achieve by using different methods. The panels itself was very interesting and it was cool hearing about the different ways in which armour and weapons could be made. For example, there was a big … Continue reading
Earlier today at the SMASH! convention was the panel for guiding people getting into cosplay called: ‘Introduction To Cosplay’, which was hosted by the cosplayer, Aly Sael. The panel itself saw the host, Aly, giving tips on cosplaying. These tips ranged from actually making costumes, down to the kind of attitude and expectations that they could bring into a con and into their own cosplays as well. After Alys presentation, she opened the floor to some questions for a Question and Answer segment, which was cool. Some of the key points that Aly seemed to be getting at was that cosplaying is really for yourself first and foremost, and as such, it is best to cosplay characters that you want … Continue reading
