Haven't posted for awhile due to attending this years (2017...) Anime-Expo and unfortunately coming down with
a cold and congestion for a couple of weeks. I also delayed posting anything due to I needed to think out how I
could better post & share what I am seeing anime-wise here.

As I mentioned above in other postings, I pretty much watch the bulk of my anime on Cartoon Network's Toon-
ami Time slot. I should have realized that not everyone has cable tv or wishes to have it. I'm mostly bringing up
what titles I am watching there and folks reading these postings can go to whatever source (Online streaming,
getting / renting the DVD's / Blu-Rays, etc...) they wish to view the anime I mention.

Anyhow, Stuff to share & talk about...


Sorry I didn't post this sooner, but Crunchyroll a couple of weeks ago had a six day marathon of anime streaming on
Twitch Tv. I dropped in here and there and caught some episodes of the following anime...

Gabriel Dropout.
Ojisan & Marshmallow- This was interesting in that the episodes were done in 5-10 minute short stories. Pretty much
                                  watched the whole series and enjoyed it.
Akashic Records Of Bastard Magic Instructor.
Free !
Miss Kobayashi Dragon Maid- Very much was hoping to look at this one. I happened to be up in the morning in time to
watch a few episodes, including episode 7 which was also called the "Fanservice" episode due to the characters went to
the beach. One of the Dragon girls definetly fits a bikini very nicely and anything else she wears ! Very much hope to
watch the whole series.

Stuff I'm catching on Toonami...   Can no longer catch any of the Dragonball series in "Real Time" due to they have
changed the times for both Dragonball Z Super & Dragonball Z Kai- The Final Episodes. If I'm lucky enough, I'll catch
the last 10-15 minutes of Jo-Jo's Bizarre Adventure-Stardust Crusaders. The other anime they are showing currently
and I am able to watch in time...

Tokyo Ghoul (Second Season...)
Hunter X Hunter.
Lupin The Third, Part IV- Hasn't been all that bad to watch.
 
Naruto Shuppiden- This is getting interesting to me. Naruto has really progressed into acting more like an adult. The
                            nine-taiis demon was almost released when Naruto went into a fit of rage due to Hinata was badly
                            injured trying to defend him and she confessed that she loved him. Naruto was able to regain
                            control of himself and the nine-tails demon after consulting with someone very important from the
                            past. (Didn't want to give too much away ! ).

Ghost In The Shell- This round showed it's final episode on 8/13/17.
Attack On Titan II - Encore Showing.

For those who don't know, Toonami was aired the first time around during 1997 until 2008 when unfortunately it was cancelled.
One of the anime that they showed during that time is making a comeback !! Outlaw Star will be taking the place of Ghost In
The Shell. This will be the first time I've seen this one. Commercials looked interesting for it.

Eventhough they don't count it as part of the Toonami line-up, Samurai Jack is having it's encore showing right after the Toonami
time slot.


Happenings at the Anime-Expo...   We did attend (Or attempted to...) some panels during the AX. On The pre-night (June 30th...),
me & Incred attended the Funimation Guide To AX 2017 which was about certain events that Funimation was going to have for it's
fans including dances and prizes at the L.A. Live area. After that panel, we attended the Full Metal Panic 15 year anniversary panel
and found out that after 15 years, a NEW version of Full Metal Panic is coming out soon !! I have never seen Full Metal Panic, but it
looked pretty good. From what I saw, the series first was in a serious frame of mind. Later on, it got more on the humorous side
of things. With the new version coming out, things are getting back on the serious side again.

Unfortunately, we were not able to get into the FLCL (Fooly-Cooly...) seasons 2 & 3 panel. We ended up about 50-60 persons short
of being able to get in.  >:(   BUT... When the event concluded and folks walked out, I saw Gil Austin & Jay De Marco from Toonami
and was able to call out to Gil and he came over and said hi and understood why we couldn't get in. I asked him very quick about when
FLCL will appear. He said it will be in 2018 and that's all he could tell me. I did see on the web a short teaser clip of  FLCL season 2 & 3.

Since we were still in line eventhough we couldn't get into the FLCL panel, we did make it into the Trigger Studios panel !! These are the
folks that brought you Gurren Lagan, Kill La Kill, and Little Witch Academia.  During the begining of the event, some folks came out with
pistols that shot out "Trigger Dollars" !  If you had an especially marked one, you got a free autograph session (Forgot with who...). Then
the panel talked about Little Witch Academia and asked if folks would like the series to continue. A decent amount of folks cheered them
on and it could be a possibility the series could go on. They then went into depth about the character's backrounds and I think mentioned
that would probably be what the second season (If they go ahead...) would be mostly about.

Then came the announcement of three new series coming from Trigger Studios !! The first one is going to be a science fiction type in space
and they didn't elaborate too much on that one. The second series is going to be interesting to those who like Ultraman or any productions
from the folks who work on that series...



They didn't elaborate too much about Gridman. But appearently a good amount of folks knew something about this coming out.

The third and final series that Trigger is coming out with caused the audience to applaud and yell the most. There was word that the creators
of Kill La Kill and Gurren Lagan were working on a project for four years prior to the announcement. This is what was announced...



We also got to see a short clip from the producers of this and Kill La Kill saying hello to us all. It was a riot due to one of them kept getting
the CENSOR bar for cursing in Japanese (LOL!!). It was also mentioned that the main protagonist in Promare is a male.


Incred came out the big winner this year due to we were able to attend both FAKKU ! panels. Fakku is a subscription website for Hentai. We
got to see some naughty clips and hear Jacob ( President of Fakku...) make funny comments about what was going on. On the second panel
we attended, Jacob mentioned about introducing hentai videos and other new stuff on Fakku.

We once again attended the Naughty Figurines panel due to we very much liked the panel from last year and the host of it. Finally remembered
her name (Francis...) and it was great being able to talk to her after her show! She is very outgoing and very knowledgeable about figurines. It
was a sad moment for her when she talked about having to leave Good Smile Company which makes smaller figurines called Nenderoids. She
now works for Fakku ! part-time.  We had such a great time chatting with her that me & Incred ended up missing our last train to Chinatown !!
It was no bother though since the walk was less than a quarter mile to get back to our hotels. We also mentioned to Francis that she should ask
to do a workshop / panel on figurine basics due to her knowledge about them. Very much would attend that event !

And finally, A package I have been waiting for finally showed up from Sentai Filmworks. My Monster Musume Limited Box Set has been delivered!!



Sorry about the glare on the package. It has both the DVD's & Blu-rays of the series and the OVA's are also included. There's small posters and
stickers included too !


Long post this time around !   Catch everyone next time and please go ahead and add your comments / postings too !   :)

Take care! litlluvr, Yoshe, Amiko, Marla, and Michiko.

over the past few days, I re-watched an anime series that came out several years ago ... C - The Money of Soul and Possibility Control ... besides the fact that the series is kind of like a college level lesson in macro-economics ... it really IS spooky the way the series seems to be a very accurate portrayal of what has been going on in the real world for many years now ... with the various stock markets running out of control ... and ... if you think that "midas money" could not possibly exist in the real world ... make believe money has always been around ... it's called "deficit spending" and "national debt" ... and for many modern nations that too has been out of control for way too many years ... countries like Greece, Spain, Italy, the U.S., just to mention a few ... and like it points out in the series about things reaching the point of collapse ... that IS happening in real life ... some countries like Greece have pretty much collapsed because they squandered their future by borrowing way too much money for way to long

 ... could America collapse ... slowly, it already is ... how much of a "future" do we have left as a country when we are so many TRILLIONS of dollars in debt that even if we stopped borrowing money as of today (ROFL like Washington is going to do THAT) ... our great-great-grandkids will still be trying to pay off that debt ... unlike what was shown in the anime, where America and the American dollar saves Japan from collapsing

 ... the idea of "we aren't broke because we can print (borrow) more money" ... is kind of like the old joke about "I cant be broke, there are still checks in my checkbook"
 ... eventually it will collapse ... despite the government denying it can ever happen to us
 ... history has shown that yes it can, and will happen

What I see in this anime is Love Triangle and the main character is such a loser not so cool. like this
Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura - Naruto
Hanamichi, Rukawa, Haruko -Slum Dunk

In a pic above in reply # 720, I showed that my Monster Musume Limited Box Set had arrived. I found out from
Incred that his box set also arrived and he mentioned about posting a pic or two to show the goodies that came
with the sets...

When I opened up the box, I laughed at how they packaged the items inside !!



The side flaps opened up to a set of nice, huge Boobies !! ;D




In the box set, you got both the DVD & Blu-Ray versions of Monster Musume along with a sound track
CD. You also got stickers of the girls, A pin-up mini-Manga book, A 3-D card with a couple of girls in it,
A small poster, and description cards of the girls and different versions of them. Some of the items were
tucked within the disk cases.

Lots of neat stuff in this set !

Take care! litlluvr, Yoshe, Amiko, Marla, and Michiko.


UPDATE... Unfortunately found out that Sentai Filmworks no longer offers this limited box set.
They do sell the DVD / Blu-Ray only version though still.

Finally watched Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid (Also known as Kobayashi-San Chi no Maid Dragon...). It's
only 13 episodes in length, so I was able to "marathon session" the anime. I liked it very much due to it
had all sorts of situations in it such as Slice of Life, Fanservice (Especially with a character named Lucoa...)
 :) ,adventure, comedy...



Found out this anime was first shown in January of 2017 and ended in March on Japanese Tv. Hopefully a second season
will be done.


On my Toonami watchings... Good news that Toonami got back a half-hour of programming ! They now call it a day on
early Sunday morning at 4am eastern time (3am for me...). But for some reason, they decided to use that regained half-
hour to show Cowboy Bebop (The letterbox version...). I like Cowboy Bebop, but I had my fill of it for awhile. Still will
watch anyhow.

The encore showing of Attack on Titan season 2 is about to end. To replace it, they will be showing Gundam- Iron Blooded
Orphans Season 2. I know when I looked this anime up on Wikipedia, it did show a lot more episodes were done since I
watched the original earlier,the first season of Gundam- Iron Blooded Orphans.


That's all for now. Will post again later !   litlluvr, Yoshe, Amiko, Marla, and Michiko.

WHOOPS !! Made an error... Gundam- Iron Blooded Orphans Season 2 will be replacing Tokyo Ghoul which ended their run
                 on 9/30/17 or 10/1/17. Still a couple more episodes of Attack on Titan Season 2 (Encore showing...) to air.

Was going to wait a bit before making my next posting here, but some good news happened on the Toonami side of
things where I watch a good amount of my anime.

Toonami is going to regain back another half hour of programming !! Their broadcasting now starts at 10:30pm late
Saturday evenings and goes all the way to 4am Sunday early mornings now. Times listed are eastern time. They are
also adding another anime to their lineup called Black Clover. Unfortunately since they added the half hour at the
beginning of their programming, I won't be able to watch Black Clover live due to it's being broadcasted during a time
I'm still stuck at work.  :(     If anyone knows anything about this anime, please be sure to post about it. I'll have to
"Time-Shift" it in order to watch it. It starts on Dec 2nd (2017...).


On the net side of things, I've been watching mostly anime that lasts 13 episodes. Watched Nyanko Days which is about
a girl who owns three young cute looking cat girls and meets another girl who has one also. Was surprised the episodes
were all done as two minute short episodes.



The next anime I viewed was Hacka Doll. It's about these dolls that were made to be sent to earth and "Advance" ( Make
folks lives better...) somehow, but end up not quite doing things right to achive their goal.



The anime I'm currently watching as I write this is Prison School. It's about a girls only school that has started to accept
boys in it's population. The five boys who are first accepted unfortunately get into trouble and are sentanced to one
months punishment in the schools on-site prison which is overseen by a society of three girls who try to get the boys
expelled from the school.




Anyhow... That's whats been going on with my anime watchings. If anyone else has anything to share, please be sure to
post ! 

Take care! litlluvr, Yoshe, Amiko, Marla, and Michiko.

I have been reading the Prison School manga, and it is very good. Loaded with suspense, humor, and sexy.

Definitely one of the best mangas I have read in a long while. As a bonus there is Kate a cute, conniving, bitchy  :redhead: Sorcha would have a hard time coplaying her since she is flat chested  ;) Although she wouldn't have any trouble with Meiko who has an awesome body. Meiko starts off as a Dom and does a 180 and becomes terribly shy when Kate shows up. Kate use to bully her relentlessly in elementary school until Meiko snapped, and became strong willed.

This is barely scratching the surface. There is so much going on and I'm only on book 8. This must be a long anime.

I just got through watching the anime. It's only 12 episodes long with 1 OVA episode.

I think the girl Kate may have got shown in episode 12 and the OVA. Does she have very short hair (It's black in the anime...) ? There was also a
curly pink haired girl who replaced the shadow student council president who did whatever she could to get the boys expelled. You see the short haired
girl use her punishment baton to "Pop" the bra off of the ex-president before she has to change into her prison uniform.

Take care! litlluvr, Yoshe, Amiko, Marla, and Michiko.

P.S... She might have had red hair, the girl who is actually the student council president.

In the Manga Kate is the Real Student Council President and had long  :redhead: curls;



The Shadow Student Council President gets sent to jail for trying expel the boys. Her name is Mari. Her hair is long and straight and is black (sometimes) with a green hue;



Nice cosplay with her;





There are two big reasons why Meiko is a popular character;

I probably should have posted this a lot sooner.  Some of you who are reading all of this may be wondering what does terms like "OVA" or
Hentai, etc mean. This glossary will help you out...

Was going to wait until after watching a few more anime to post again, but an unfortunate event happened
recently...

Shimada Michiru who wrote the stories for Little Witch Academia and several other anime passed away
recently at age 56. There was no mention of what she died from. Her Daughter made the announcement...

https://www.sankakucomplex.com/2017/12/16/little-witch-academia-writer-passes-away/

I'm pretty sure that she did appear at both the 2015 & 2017 Anime-Expos to talk about her work on Little
Witch Academia. Will miss her talents very much.

Recently watched Shimoneta. This one is a riot to watch! But it also kind of hits home with me due to it's
story.  Japan becomes a "Pure" society which means no swearing, no porn, etc... A group called "SOX" led
by a person named Blue Snow attempts to disrupt all of this by doing certain activities such as putting
naughty pics in student's lockers, etc at a school which trains the enforcers of the law. A male student becomes
part of the leadership council due to his infatuation with the president of the council who actually turns out to be
perverted for his love !




I'm currently watching an anime me & Incred got a peek at while at the Hobby Japan vendor area while at the anime
expo. In a closed-off area. They had an anime showing that could only be viewed by folks 18+ years of age. It was
titled The Seven Deadly Sins or also known as The Seven Mortal Sins ( The Japanese title is Sin Nanatsu No Taizai...).
Funimation also has an anime called The Seven Deadly Sins, but appearently Hobby Japan does have it's own studio
which made their version. An angel named strangely enough - Lucifer, falls from heaven to hell where the seven sins
are. The leader of the sins, Belial casts a spell on Lucifer and in order to break it, she has to battle all the other sin
girls (Greed, Sloth, Lust, Etc...). The first time Lucifer heads on down to hell, she ends up in a church for a moment
and touches a girl named Maria. When Lucifer comes back up to find the other sins, she runs into Maria again and
takes her heart in order to make her join her in finding the other sin girls. This anime isn't on the morbid side of
things. In fact, it has humor in it, fanservice for sure, and serious moments also.




That's all for now. Take care all ! litlluvr, Yoshe, Amiko, Marla, and Michiko.
