Anime Hype: Cons, Alien Girls, Future Girls, Maid Girls & Voice Acting Deals

 Don't forget you've got some upcoming anime conventions nearby
October 21st-23rd, 2022
Sheraton LA San Gabriel

Another annual anime convention that we believe has been off the board because of Covid. However, it's now back in the game. So, enjoy a weekend of cosplay, merch booth and more. This is more of a community and fan panel convention, so don't go expecting premieres of anime shows.

The schedule just went up, unlike whatever Anime Expo Chibi is doing, where it slowly trickles out information.

For $50 explore a smaller AX that isn't downtown. No idea how the first one will go. Perfect for those who want to grab goodies for the holidays.

November 12-13, 2022 in Ontario, California
One of our favorite anime series is back on Blu-ray Oct 11
from Section 23 Films

 Once they were the stuff of children’s tales.  Now, after Mankind’s civilization has collapsed and Man’s numbers have dropped to a handful, the fairies and other creatures of legend have laid claim to most of the Earth.  Yet, while the grandeur of Man’s culture has faded, there are still humans who believe that they still have a purpose.  This is why Watashi has decided to take on her Grandfather’s position as an arbitrator between the races… though as one of the few left who know how to make sweets, her negotiations most often take the form of bribes.  For the more difficult cases, she carries a weapon.  It’s not an easy job, but Watashi must succeed.  Otherwise, future generations of fairies may amuse their children with stories about the mythical creatures known as men after HUMANITY HAS DECLINED.
Lot of talk about Crunchroll not even talking to Sag-Aftra about Unionizing voice actors. It makes sense why Crunchyroll doesn't want to, because it means paying the actors more and giving benefits and it's far cheaper to do it now. But, when these franchises rank in money it's pretty unfair that the voice talent gets paid so little.
"HIDIVE announced that it will debut Akiba Maid War, an original anime project from P.A. Works (Ya Boy Kongming!) and Cygames (Zombie Land Saga), in October as part of its Fall 2022 simulcast lineup."
Akihabara is the center of the universe for the coolest hobbies and quirkiest amusements. In the spring of 1999, bright-eyed Nagomi Wahira moves there with dreams of joining a maid café. She quickly dons an apron at café Ton Tokoton, AKA the Pig Hut. But adjusting to life in bustling Akihabara isn’t as easy as serving tea and delighting customers. Paired with the dour Ranko who never seems to smile, Nagomi must do her best to elevate the Pig Hut over all other maid cafés vying for top ranking. Along the way she’ll slice out a place for herself amid the frills and thrills of life at the Pig Hut. Just when Nagomi’s dreams are within her grasp, she discovers not everything is as it seems amid the maid cafés of Akihabara.

"HIDIVE announced its acquisition of Urusei Yatsura, the highly anticipated, new TV series based on the best-selling manga of the same name by legendary mangaka Rumiko Takahashi, the renowned creator of Inuyasha, Ranma ½ and Maison Ikkoku. A new adaptation of the beloved classic series, Urusei Yatsura features the instantly recognizable and utterly iconic character Invader Girl Lum and will premiere on HIDIVE during the Fall 2022 simulcast season. When an alien race known as the Oni invade Earth, the chronically unlucky and unapologetically lecherous Ataru Moroboshi is selected as humanity’s representative in a duel for the fate of the planet! His opponent is Lum, the Oni’s very pretty princess, and it’s only thanks to Ataru’s unscrupulous behavior that he’s able to scrape out a win in a treacherous game of tag against her. Ataru thinks he’s had his lucky break at last, but when Lum takes a shine to him off the battlefield, the conflict follows him home as Lum invades not only planet Earth, but also the womanizing Ataru’s love life!"
