In this CD, there are 10 tracks and the characters featured Clare, Priscilla, Galatea, Deneve, Opheilia, Irene, Sophia, Teresa, Helen, and Miria (in that order). For people who don’t know what the hell is a “character song” it’s basically a song where the seiyuu for an anime sings a song that’s supposed to reflect the […]

Something that Haruhi fans must already know about is “Suzumiya Haruhi no Gekisou,” which is this big concert for the series where the voice actors/actresses sing the songs from the show and their character CDs

I just got back from AX after a very long day. So how was the SOS Brigade Invasion Tour? Basically it was a wonderful mess. The performances were wonderful but the AX staff screwed up.

Yui Horie, or “Hocchan” to some of her fans, is one of the most successful seiyuus (voice over artist) in the past few […]

Osamu Tezuka, The Father of Anime and Manga

Darren Pangan (December 20, 2006)   No Comments

The late Dr. Osamu Tezuka is considered by many fans as the Father of Anime and Manga. I believe he deserves it. The conventional styles we see on anime and manga today are patterned on his styles especially when it comes to character design.
Dr. Tezuka was born on November 3, 1928 in the City […]
