Why Do I Watch Anime? The 3 Reasons Why I Watch Anime

kannagi

If you ever asked me this in person, I could go through a 2 hour indoctrination of how anime changed my life. Although I don’t think anyone would like to read my opinion for that long, So I am going to try and keep it short and sweet and hope you enjoy it. Also go and check out more as this is an aniblog project performed by other anibloggers inspired by Kai.

This is my first editorial, not regarding news or review of an anime for the BAR, so here’s to hoping you like it. Firstly, I want to find a few  simple yet brief responses that would best describe as to why I watch anime. Canne goes over a good set of responses that are typically used but really carry no weight behind them. The best example is in regards to foreign culture, and how that is just shallow and not well thought out. I find that learning a bit about the culture is just a nice bonus but not a defining reason for me to watch anime. Continue reading

Figure of the Week: Kotobukiya’s Upcoming Asuka

Pirate Asuka takes to the seas photo

This is in the vein of Koto’s earlier Evangelion figures, featuring the pilots sitting atop their respective Evas. I’m kind of glad they went back to that theme. As you can see, EVA-02 looks pretty banged up after its outing in Evangelion 2.0. Asuka herself is pretty banged up, and apparently needed to duct tape her plug suit together. Also, her helmet has cat ears. Continue reading

Figure of the week: S.H. Figurarts’ Silver Crow

This is a great figure with many exchangeable hands (including the program defying sword like hand). It does come with a flight stand and like other figuarts it has a clear claw to wrap around the waist but also has the option of direct plugging a hole in the back to eliminate the need for the claw. I actually own this figure and I am 100% satisfied with it. That why S.H. Figuarts’ Silver Crow soars into this week figure of the week. Continue reading
