This year marks the 30th anniversary of the birth of Gundam and not to leave the legacy behind the awesome dudes at the New York Anime Fest have lined up  their guest of honor. None other than Yoshiyuki Tomino the director of Mobile Suit Gundam.  We are very glad than Mr Yoshiyuki Tomino is coming to New York  and New York Anime Fest for pulling strings and making this possible.  Also look forward to a full coverage on NYAF 2009  and Otakon 2009.

Well it looks grim for fellow perverts and the like.  It looks like due to recent potential regulation and media hysteria a potential loop hole has been close. It looks like “in future, it appears games featuring non-human heroines and pregnancy may not be allowed on sale in shops.” according to one adult visual novel publisher(Norn)

The New Trailer for “Summer Wars”

16 Jun

As some of you remember last year the club officially screened the film “The Girl Who Leapt Through Time” . It was such a success that the college newspaper the Excelsior wrote a whole article on it. Now here is director Mamoru Hosoda’s latest work the film “Summer Wars”.  It follows the same patter of being a light hearted, and sometimes touching film.

Some notable people attached to this film were involved in some of our favorite anime series and movies such as Evangelion’s character designer  Yoshiyuki Sadamoto and  Youji Takeshge  who has worked on a couple of Miyazaki’s films.

There is something to look  forward mybe next year.
