Otakon 2017 Notes

Posted by DiGiKerot in Random Stuff at August 17, 2017 on 7:31 pm

I made my now seemingly annual trip to Otakon last week – I think it’s my fifth at this point, which isn’t the insane 20 or so of some folks I know, but I do have an entire ocean separating me from it. Still, time flies, and all that. In fact, time flies so much that I complete forgot to finish that post about AX last month. Whoops.

AX 2017 Prep Notes

Posted by DiGiKerot in Random Stuff at June 30, 2017 on 4:11 am

Turns out I’m in LA for AnimeExpo this weekend. You know, idols and all that, not that I’m particularly well prepared for it. I guess I’m mostly just going to wing it in all my efforts this weekend.

Anyway, Omo has more useful notes than I’m likely to make, so go read those.

Revisiting Katyusha

I saw a festival screening of the Girls und Panzer movie at the Scotland Loves Anime event in Edinburgh yesterday. This isn’t the first screening on the movie outside of Japan – it played at a convention in the US a couple of weeks back following Sentais licensing announcement for it, at least, but it may well be the second, and certainly is of the official English subtitled version.

Zaregoto Anime Project Announced

Apparently, they announced an anime project based around Nisioisins Zaregoto novel cycle. It’s apparent existence is about all they announced – it’s maybe a little wishful thinking to think this might be what Tatsuya Oishi is working on now that the end is presumably insight on the long road to Kizumonogatari, so let’s not think that for now.

I’m not sure if this is a win or not…

I mean, it’s a perfectly nice image of Diana – the beginning of an effects shot even – but then some jerk goes and gets a nice frame of Akko and Lotte and I start pondering my lack of luck with these random pack-in things.

But, hey, I didn’t even realise this was coming with a genga until yesterday morning, so I probably shouldn’t complain, and at least it’s not Candle Tier.
