Lucky Americans get to meet Urobutcher LOL

I saw Yuasa's Adventure Time short thing. Very cool and love the classical music with it~


How does Gen even have time to go to Anime Expo? He seems to have SO MUCH stuff upcoming...

By the way, if you're into classical music in anime look out for Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso (http://myanimelist.net/anime/23273/Shigatsu_wa_Kimi_no_Uso) for Fall/winter season. Seems like it could be pretty good, especially since it should have 22 episodes according to MAL.

Thanks ! :)

Denki-gai no Honya-san seems interesting, but man... Fall seems to be crowded of many interesting shows. As for Summer, I will pick Hanamonogatari, Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, and Psycho Pass.

I don't understand why I have this goosebumps when I the eyes in the new Sailor Moon anime. Or it is just me?

Not just you. I also don't really like the art, but I will give it a chance for 3 episodes.
