Tonight on GeekNights, it's Adventure Time! (Scott wouldn't sing the song). In the news, Venture Brothers is starting up a new season soon, physical media continues to die, and Princess Knight is getting a remastered release (but dub only).
Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about some anime we knew of, but never bothered to watch, as well as anime we watched for a while, but then stopped. From the shounen fighting shows that had a few good starting episodes following by neverending fights (Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, Yuyu Hakusho, etc...) to the crappy knockoff TV show reboots of otherwise good shows (El Hazard: The Wanderers, Tenchi TV, Lodoss), from shows we straight ignored despite being constantly talked about (Nadesico) to those we watched more than half of before just stopping (Ergo Proxy, Kaze no Yojimbo). Some shows just aren't worth watching (until you're old and have nothing better to do: Legend of the Galactic Heroes, GaoGaiGar). Before that, Rym gives a more detailed review of Shin Sekai Yori (From the New World), which is basically a psychic 1984, and Monaco is real and playable!
Tonight on GeekNights, we relate our experience at MoCCa Art Fest 2013. We bought less than usual, there were some changes now that it's under the umbrella of the Society of Illustrators, but it was mostly the same old MoCCa we know and love. In the news, the Internet Rage Machine saw a full and complete cycle around the Saga #12 "banning" from the Apple app store, which raises the related question of why Apple treats apps as second class citizens (to movies and books) when it comes to free speech, curation, and censorship. Rym and Emily saw Up On Poppy Hill - Goro Miyazaki's latest movie - and it is frankly excellent. Also, itchy beards.
Tonight on GeekNights, Emily replaces Scott to review Mamoru Hosoda's Wolf Children, which we just saw at the International Children's Film Festival. We also are performing FIVE lectures at Anime Boston 2013!
Tonight on GeekNights, we review the recent My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comic. We also realize it's cyberpunk season, and we're rewatching anime with gusto. In the news, Rym GeekBites From the New World (Shin Sekai Yori), Otakon is branching out into Las Vegas, and we learn why the golden age of Disney animated television came and went.
Tonight on GeekNights, we bring to you some initial thoughts on Star Wars (Wood) and Saga (Vaughan). They're both worth reading. Star Wars is reminds one of TIE Fighter, and Saga reminds one of The Incal and The Fifth Element. We also consider a crazy guy on the bus to MAGFest, fake cabs, the upcoming Ghost in the Shell: Arise, K.C. Green's Regular Show, TM Revolution appearing again at Otakon (we interviewed him once and talked about it), us continuing to be blacklisted from Otakon, and more!
Tonight on GeekNights, we review, based solely on a single picture and short description, all of the anime series listed here for winter of 2012-2013 (you can follow along with the image). One normally shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, but anime? It's a pretty safe bet in most cases. But before that, Hobbits, Mononoke Hime, Jellies (Nyar), the sad story of WarZ, and the Anime Boston Tipping Guide. We've also launched a new show! GeekNights Presents, starting with a detailed analysis of Shoujou Kakumei Utena. We have about 40 more episodes of this to go, but we won't increase the speed at which we upload/produce them unless you guys spread the word!
