Pre-Anime NYC 2019: Yeah, You Know Me! Who’s Down With Anime NYC?

hisui_icon_4040_round Last year I wondered if Anime NYC could top 2017. Well, I can easily say that this year just smoked 2018 without much effort. We have movie premieres, Boichi, a ton of interesting anime and manga guests, and JAM Project. Plus the author of Today’s Menu for the Emiya Family, a Lord El-Melloi II’s Case Files event, and the Fate/Grand Order Tour. Oh, and mother flipping Yoshiyuki Tomino. Yoshiyuki Tomino.  This is an Anime Expo or Japan Expo line up.

The fact that I did not even mention that Rie Kugimiya was making her big US debut here should tell you how much there is do here. I can’t wait to just dive into this craziness.

Type-Moon Weekly News Roundup: I Was Just Talking About Rumiko Chie

This Saturday post is the weekly Type-Moon news in addition to the regular APB post on Sunday. If you have any suggestions for what to highlight on the Type-Moon Weekly News Roundup drop me a line via email or Twitter.

When the Cicadas Podcast

hisui_icon_4040_round Don’t worry I am still able to podcast and the latest episode of Oldtaku no Radio. I went on with @QX20XX and we talked about the famous/infamous series, Higurashi When They Cry. The series is best known as the horror/mystery series where cute girls murder each other is grizzly ways. I came on the show as someone who watched the series in the past but also played the original visual novel. It is definitely a podcast where three of us found it thought provoking and fascinating and one of us would have rather watched Wild Cardz on loop 50 times rather than watch Higurashi again. Listen to the episode to find how who is who.

Don’t worry. As the picture above proves I was able to work in Type-Moon to the conversation. And best of all this time it was not entirely forced but in fact relevant to the conversation. Awesome!
