Welcome back! You’ve looked over the prime selections of Thursday’s San Diego Comic Con programming schedule and are back for more! Friday’s programming schedule packs an even bigger punch and just goes to show how massive a show this really is. But you knew that already, didn’t you? Let’s dive right in and get to what we think are some stand-out panels for Friday, July 10th!
I beam with pride at being called a nerd. I am unapologetic about my love for Anime, Video Games, and my passion for drawing. I’ve spent plenty on Copic Markers and my bookshelf is lined with manga and “How to Draw Manga” books. I LOVE anime conventions, being from the west coast Anime Expo has been a yearly thing for me. My anime viewing may have been stopped in the last few years and I rarely pick up a manga, but each year I go to AX because it is super fun and it has become a yearly tradition. This was and is my childhood and I will forever cherish it.
But there is something that I regret to admit but I was among those who would write fan fictions and make Anime Music Videos, I look back at those and I just have to laugh at the ridiculousness of it all. The fan fiction is poorly written and make no sense and the AMV is all over the place hot mess. Did I enjoy doing it? Hell yes, but my skills were poor and ideas so lame and cringe-worthy.
So after the jump I will shamefully displace my nerdy creations for all to ridicule and mock me! I will only post my AMV because I don’t want to be laughed off the internet for my Kingdom Heart Fan-Fictions!
With the programming for this year’s San Diego Comic Con being released daily for the next few days, we figured it would be best to spotlight some of the panels happening each day that caught our eye. We found ourselves curious about panels in both the larger and smaller rooms, of all topics known to grace the halls of San Diego Comic Con. Here are our some of our favorites for Thursday, July 9th!
No, this is not your 80’s song or some childhood toy. This is deeper than that. This is computers, technology, and people who are much, much smarter than you. USA Network’s Mr. Robot hit television screens everywhere last night, following being released on Youtube for people to watch ahead of time. I watched the first episode and I am hooked already. It’s like they have hacked into my brain and wired me to enjoy it. But that’s not all true. Hit the jump for more!
Browsing the Steam store, I stumbled over this game title, took a pause, and quickly moved back to look at the details. I couldn’t remember where I had heard chatter about this game, but the name sparked a memory and I immediately remembered that whoever had been talking about it was very excited. It made it worth checking out. A glance over the synopsis, a reminder that I’d probably heard about it when it was looking for funding, and a look at some user reviews completely sold me. The game, developed by Sam Barlow, launched on Steam June 24th, 2015 to quite a bit of buzz.
Perfect. A brand new game that sounded absolutely fascinating.
“Her Story grants players access to a police database of archived video footage that covers seven interviews from 1994 in which a British woman is interviewed by detectives about her missing husband.”
The few weeks before a convention can be stressful and a little bit overwhelming, what with schedules releasing and plans finalizing and vendors announcing their wares. Cosplayers struggle to finish their projects before Day 0 and the overarching excitement makes it hard to focus on real life. For first time con attendees, the uncertainty of what to expect sometimes makes forming a gameplan difficult.
We’re here to help, though! Click the read more for some of our tried and true tips for preparing yourself for Anime Expo, general ideas of what to expect from events, and a few of our personal recommendations for panels and events that are absolute musts.
It’s inevitable. When you’re at San Diego Comic Con, you’re going to have to wait in line. We created a list of things that can keep you sane while you wait in line throughout the course of the convention. By the time you’re done, you’ll be ready to tackle Hall H, Ballroom 20, the Indigo Ballroom, and more! Let’s get in line!
Earlier today, TVLine broke the news that the hit NBC show Hannibal would be ending its run with the completion of the 3rd season (airing now through August). Dramatic dips in viewership and ratings have left the show open to such a possibility. Many people were shocked at this cancellation, especially regulars of social media outlets like Twitter and Tumblr, where Fannibals are very vocal, active members.
Needless to say, the news didn’t break quietly.
Bryan Fuller, the writer behind the show, has been leading a twitter charge, praising the dedication and tenacity of Fannibals and encouraging them to come together in support. Hannibal may be on NBC’s chop list, but Fuller has made it clear that Fannibals still have many opportunities to rally support and show just how powerful they are. Keep reading as we look at a few ways Hannibal fans can keep supporting their favorite TV show about Cannibalism.
I remember the days from 2000-2002 fondly, tuning into Comedy Central, excited for the cyber sounding voice to count down to battle time. Yes, I’m talking about Battlebots. While the original incarnation ended much too soon, a new incarnation was brought back to life last night on ABC and gosh are we excited for what is to come next. We tuned in to the first episode last night and are eagerly awaiting the next broadcast. The box is locked, the lights are on, it’s robot fighting time!
