Anime Expo boarding this way

Eating some lunch before boarding

Eating some lunch before boarding

It is by nothing else but shear luck that we managed to get vacation time, money, and comic con badges this year. It also helped that San Diego Comic Con starts the weekend after Anime Expo finishes.

Usually these two conventions are between 3 or 4 weeks apart but this year they are back to back. And now that we moved to Seattle, it is very convenient to have them one after the other.

Can't believe that tomorrow Anime Expo starts!  

I have gone over the schedule and I have plenty of conflicts (what is new?) .

Best of luck to all of us and that your lines be short and move quickly.


New Ghost in the Shell movie due this Summer in Japan

Not even a week after the revelation that Scarlett Johansson will be playing Mayor Kusanagi in Dreamwork's adaptation of GITS when we get this little gem from Japan:

There is no dialog, just text on the screen, thanks to Anime News Network for the translation:

Text: The legendary science-fiction work that caused a revolution around the world.
Text: Original Work - Masamune Shirow
Text: A work in celebration of 25 years
Text: The awakened ghost whispers...
Text: Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie
Text: Opens in early summer 2015

Lost of people familiar with the GITS universe are involved in this project. It is hard to believe that it has been 25 years since Shirow's master piece hit the bookshelves.
