From time to time I travel to anime conventions. While they are fun for anyone who is into this sort of thing there are some things you have to watch out for. I don’t just mean pedobear or the possibility that if you are in cosplay you may be glomped to death. No. The thing to really watch out for is epic anime fights. Yes. That’s right. Some cosplayers aren’t really cosplayers at all… so watch out! Or at least try to steer clear of the punching ect.
Gak is the one responsible (and getting the bejeesus beat out of him) for this video. I highly suggest checking out his other videos for some more of his great editing and his willingness to figure out new SFX to keep us entertained. One of which is a Death Eater vs an Auror in case any of you need something to get you even more excited for the last Harry Potter movie.
Over the years Dark Horse has done a fantastic job of bringing American fans the best in manga and translated novels (like the Vampire Hunter D series, one of my very favorite series). It’s no secret that they’ve done more than bring us the latest volumes of what you could classify as heavyweight and/or classic titles. Heavyweight classics like the omnibus collections of past series from the manga-ka (Japanese comic artist) super group CLAMP that have been released to US fans over the past months.
While this is all fantastic there is some more exciting news! Dark Horse is set to bring us brand spanking new manga from CLAMP. That’s right. Brand new. The series is called Gate 7 and it’s set to tell the story of an awkward teenage boy named Chikahito Takamoto who stumbles through a portal to a magical world via a legendary shrine. Turns out he meets some lovely magical ladies who’s powers don’t seem to work on him! Well if this doesn’t spell the beginnings CLAMP shenanigans I have no idea what does.
Even better? According to a report on ANN we’re supposed to get the first volume (192 pages) for $10.99 in October! That’s a pretty great turn around for a new series by such a notable group. CLAMP revealed the new series on their website April 25th.
