Stuff + writing + girlfriend + emotional problems + friends + anime + my slow but inevitable maturation
Contemplating with Canti
This is so great! My girlfriend is a True Artist!
I’m back from LA! I saw Reggie at Nintendo and he said I could come over a sleep over any time, but you’re not invited.
I also stumbled upon Bunkado in LA’s Little Tokyo. Opened in 1945, Bunkado was the first record store in Little Tokyo. Along with tons of Enka albums and tapes, they also have an insanely huge selection of anime laserdiscs.
This may be the best thing I’ve ever SEEN. I absolutely have to go to this store. I tend to be more pragmatic but I will buy anime laserdiscs sight unseen, regardless of circumstance (I do actually have a laserdisc player, so it isn’t entirely impractical). And I’d REALLY like to own Gunbuster on any format I can because it is my all-time favorite anime. So, yeah, this is amazing.

These are pretty interesting comparisons but I’m only reblogging this to give my girlfriend more incentive to watch Buffy because she likes or loves all of these shows and loved Dr. Horrible. So.
I took the liberty of scanning the English-translation pamphlet of the Japanese information booklet that came with the US blu-ray release of Gunbuster: The Movie. As you can see, it’s a wealth of information. I plan on scanning the pamphlet that came with Diebuster: The Movie next as well.
Oh. This is actually sort of important.
Flower Mound, TX – June 11, 2013 – In celebration of hitting the 1 million fan milestone on their official Facebook page, FUNimation has announced the acquisition of Evangelion 3.0.
Shinji awakens – fourteen years after the third impact – to an existence he does not recognize. Earth lies in ruins, yet his body has not aged a single day. Those he once fought valiantly to protect have cruelly turned against him. Nerv is nothing but a memory. Trapped in a harrowing cycle of death and rebirth, Shinji continues to courageously battle the angels – even as the world spirals toward a tragic end.
A big “Thank You!” to all the FUNimation fans for getting us to this momentous milestone. We’re grateful to you all, and incredibly lucky to have such awesome fans.
