A Look Back at C2E2 2013

K-ON


It's once again time to take a look back at Chicago's largest comic convention, C2E2! Spring is right around the corner, meaning convention season is upon us.

TFS - Abridgimon Episode 2

K-ON


It's been awhile, but TeamFourStar has finally released the second episode of their amazing Digimon Abridged Series- Abridgimon! Personally I think they should just stop doing DBZ Abridged altogether & work on Abridgimon all the time. This episode, covering the final 2 episodes of season one, picks things up right where the first episode ended, which covered episodes 1-52. You'd think since this episode covers a few less episodes in the exact same amount of time that there'd be pacing problems. BUT YOU'D BE WRONG.

Check out the video now, & then go watch the latest episode of Gennai with the Glasses!

Nitro+ Preps for American Release

K-ON


Nitro+ has been hard at work on their latest game- Sonicoshock Infinity. But what wasn't known until just today is that the folks over there are hard at work on bringing the game to America! In fact they're so dedicated to making it a success over here that they even have an American in charge over there, who also is guiding us around the studio in this video. He has to be American after all, what with that blond hair & perfect accent. Check out what he has to say in the video above!

K-ON

Anime Central 2012 took place just two short weeks after C2E2. Barely enough time to calm down after the excitement, and yet the truly big anime convention of the Midwest was about to start up! ACen 2012 was a big one, and here's what went down:

C2E2 2012: Cosplay

K-ON


We're back to take a look at some of the wonderful cosplay seen at C2E2 last year. The true standout for me was this cosplayer of Gokai Blue from Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger! For something that was only seen in Japan, it was pretty cool to see him at an American con- & not one that even specializes in Japanese culture, at that! That being said, there were still other cool anime inspired costumes as well, along with a few other standouts. Check them out:

Spring has finally arrived, & with it a new convention season is underway. Here in Chicago, the big two for anime fans are C2E2 & Anime Central, & the 2013 conventions for both are drawing near. As such, I thought it would be a good time to take a look back at the events from last year, starting with C2E2!

DragonBall GT Kai Announced

Anya


For fans who wanted more DragonBall Kai, you're in luck! & no, it's not that they're finally doing the Buu saga. It's something even better- DragonBall GT Kai! That's right, everyone's favorite part of the DragonBall franchise is at last coming back, & it's getting the Kai treatment. That means you're getting all action, & no filler! GT Kai will be edited to take out the parts that weren't in the manga, so all you're left with is the original material from Akira Toriyama.

As a result, GT Kai is running for a total of 0 episodes.
