Katsucon 2016

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , | 2 Comments
I had the opportunity to attend part of Katsucon this Saturday. Yes, that’s Lucy in a fuzzy rainbow bear hat with paws thing. It is amazing. (Connor doesn’t dress up, but he still has fun.) To be honest, I’m not much for Valentine’s Day as a holiday anyway, and instead of spending money on a fancy dinner, I’d much rather hit an anime convention with the family. So off we went. Last year, it was a last minute thing, and we bought the tickets same day, which meant waiting in line for over 3 hours to get badges, so I pre-ordered this time around. More expensive since I had to buy all 3 days for 4 people, but from a pain perspective, I wasn’t going to be able to handle that much standing so it was worth the extra cost. For the most part it was overall just a nice… Read more

It’s been a rough couple of weeks over at the Pang house. Between snow days and sick kids, the daily schedule has been upset a little more than I’d like it to be. And then tack on last week, which was nearly a complete waste as I succumbed to a bout of the flu/strep/anemia thing as well that hit me a lot harder than I anticipated. I can write/work through a cold, but you know it’s bad when I don’t want to eat/play video games/read/do anything other than lie there and oh god, someone come put me out of my misery now.

It’s a bit silly in places and there’s some typical fanservice, but I enjoy realizing that fox spirits are… Read more

Wolf Children

So I found this fan-made AMV on Tumblr the other day (and it turns out it won the Best Drama and Editor’s Choice over at Anime Boston this year, so it’s good stuff.) Not even mentioning the fact that I clearly have a soft spot for the demon/spirit foxes and the ladies who love them, this AMV is really well done. And sad. The anime it’s created from is  Wolf Children Ame and Yuki – which has been licensed by Funimation but it hasn’t been released in the U.S. yet. I did find a fan sub the other night and watched it in its entirety and I’ll definitely be picking it up when it’s released here. (Hopefully in Blu-Ray) It’s worth the watch. On the surface, it’s about a girl who falls in love with a wolf man. When he dies, she’s left trying to raise two children who aren’t completely… Read more
