In January, The Otaku In The Corner got to meet with renowned voice actor Greg Ayres. This was the first time Otaku took it alone and got to get a good look into the life of this voice actor.

Given the year and near proximity to the twentieth anniversary, we decided that the time would be ripe to tackle the cult classic, Hackers. Staring an Angelina Jolie who hadn’t yet decided that collecting children like Pokemon was to be her hobby and some guy who’s name we only remember because he has an IMDB entry, they play the titular Hackers.

Hollywood, demonstrating that it gets trends wrong at least as often as it gets them right, portrays the good guys, aka the “cool kids”, as rollerbladers. Meanwhile, the sole villain, an older and less hip ex-hacker, rides a skateboard. How hindsight always kicks us when we turn around. Read more>>

This week on VG Pulse, we have a cupcake-fueled giggle-fest as we cover the week’s events!

Originally, we were only scheduled to have an interview with Laura Post. Lucky for us, she brought along some friends of hers, who just happened to also be guests! So we sat down for a nice little chat with Laura (Ahri in League of Legends, Rosalia in Sword Art Online), Lisle Wilkerson (Tekken, Street Fighter), and Julie Rei Goldstein (Risai in Paradise Kiss and Precia Testarossa in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha).

E here! No lie– this was one of my favorite parts of Animeland Wasabi. Walking through the dining area, I heard the faint serenade of the Tetris theme. I grabbed Weltall and drug him through the crowd to the piano to get a closer look. Read more>>

Ouran and Geth talk to the lovely ladies who founded Onmyodo Shoes. They talk about the unfortunate closing of Onmyodo, and what may happen in the future. Enjoy the high energy, and the background noise that the dealer’s room provides.

Armed with a new camera that can withstand the brunt of energetic kids (the Olympus Stylus-8000 Tough), I bring you the first pictures of fun Engrish shirts.

A bit deeper than I expect when I think “Airwalk”, but I guess it ties in.

AIRWALK
A DAILY DOSE OF FREEDOM
inner peace and enlightenment can only be achieved after there are no places left on your body to bruise
Airwalk
A DAILY DOSE OF FREEDOM
when this happens, take a moment to look down, and realize you’ve found the ground whether you’re ready or not
upon the attempt to transcend the metaphysical one can easily get lost alone

One word… “ElJohn”? Seriously?

I’m currently watching TV on my DS, yay for Japanese tech. The Minshuto (DJP) has 276 seats out of the 480, with the Jiminto (LDP) only having 82. This means that Aso Taro is out of power and Hatoyama Yukio is in power. Join the rest of Japan in rejoicing that one group of old, power-hungry and corrupt men has been replaced with an almost identical group (heck, they were the same party until 1996) of old, power-hungry and corrupt men. Yay for choice!

EDIT: Now the DJP is at 303, LDP at 115, with only 14 seats left to report. Komeito has 19, Communist party has 8, Social Democratic has 5, with 16 seats split among other small parties.

So, I spent some time with the Gundam. We got up close and personal, I hesitate to call it a “thing”, but there was a connection there. I approached slowly.

Alright, I’m back, unpacked, and ready to talk about Comiket.

I’m sure you’ve already heard, but this was a record attendance event. Over 560,000 over the three days. Talk about crazy. Since I’ve already talked about Day 1 in my previous post, let’s talk about Day 2.

First off, after finally getting a chance to go through the Catalog, I have a better feel for the event. Day 1 appears to be a lot of Yaoi stuff, Day 2 is a lot of Game/Videos and Day 3 is a lot of the male-oriented doujin. Of course, every day has lots of doujin, but that’s the emphasis. So, plan in hand, I was ready.

So I just got back from Comiket 76, Day 1. It was a wild time. I left the hotel just after 8am, got to the Rinkai line, Kokusai-Tenjijou station around 8:45 or so. The crowds weren’t bad until I saw the actual line. Then I followed the traffic around to the end of the line, almost a kilometer away!
