One Punch Man Preview

One Punch Man - the anime TV series - is about to air. We here on GeekNights have watched one episode (poorly subtitled and badly bootlegged) to confirm that it is everything you could ever have hoped it to be. Descender (Jeff Lemire) is out, as it the latest Saga trade. Rym and Emily are deeply into the surprisingly human Bojack Horseman. Tons of old Streamline dubs of 90s OAVs like 8 Man After are just hanging out on youtube.

Sailor Moon Crystal - First Look

Tonight on GeekNights, we present our first look at Sailor Moon Crystal. We worry it is uninspired and lacks the care and energy of the original anime, but will continue watching it for the time being. Meanwhile, we're also watching the original anime (as we've discussed previously). In the news, Thor is a lady, Archie is dead, Yowamushi Pedal is getting a movie, Midousuji is Voldo, and ConnectiCon 2014 was amazing! We're also looking generally for good AMVs.

Ghost in the Shell: Arise - Preview

Tonight on GeekNights, we review the first two episodes of Ghost in the Shell: Arise, after having seen them in the theater. It's more of a "preview" in the sense that we don't have enough out yet to fully examine the show's worth. In a pinch, however, it'll definitely serve as an adequate follow-on to Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. We also saw Takashi Murakami's Jellyfish Eyes at Lincoln Center, along with the man himself and some surprisingly good Q&A.

Star Wars and Saga

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!

Don't forget that ConnectiCon Panel Submissions are open (you have to register for the site), and Anime Boston Panel Submissions end THURSDAY.

Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine

Tonight on GeekNights, we preview, based on the first three episodes streaming at FUNimation's site, Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Minen-the-third-fujiko-mine">Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine. It's pretty good. In the news, an incident or two from Anime Boston 2012 have been making the rounds with the usual locked thread response, and Tor abandons DRM in a move that shouldn't be as bold as it appears in light of the rest of the publishing industry.

In more local news, we'll be at Connecticon (and so be should you), Zenkaikon, MoCCA Fest, PAX Prime, and maybe Otakon!
