3D Ghost in the Shell? No, Thanks!

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in Anime

I seriously don’t get the whole 3D craze. I go to the movies to relax, and dodging virtual crap being flung at my head is not my idea of relaxing. So even though I love Ghost in the Shell more than life itself, no thanks. Solid State Society 3D What are they going to make […]


What Are You Doing Next Weekend?

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in Events

So, you might remember that we mentioned local con Sugoicon in the last podcast. Specifically, we’re going to be there- at least, Shapiro Keats and Musashi and I are, and maybe Mazinga will drop by and also Ed, but probably just to make fun of us (I don’t know if Ed’s wife will come, but […]

Badass Anime Chicks

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in Anime

I was listening to Talk of the Nation today (as you do). It seems Thursday’s pressing and relevant news story- I kid, Neil, I love your show- was the Best Female Action Heroes in movies. Theu discussed Ripley from Alien and Sarah Connor from Terminator (obviously) as well as the Bride from Kill Bill and […]

Interview With Live-Action GitS Writer

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in Anime

I found an interview with Laeta Kalogridis, writer on the live-action Ghost in the Shell movie (I already made fun of her on this site for writing Pathfinder). She doesn’t give us much except the movie is based on the manga and is not a remake of the legendary anime film, and that it is […]

AnaKhouri Goes Nuts

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in Anime

So I went temporarily out of my mind a couple weeks ago and volunteered to run a panel at an anime convention. This is crazy because I HATE talking in front of people, and I don’t really have time to put a panel together. But they accepted, and Shapiro Keats is going to help, so […]

Two classics of modern Japanese animation, each a landmark in their own right, will be released on Blu-ray on November 24th, courtesy of Manga Entertainment. I could go on for paragraphs about how awesome these flicks are (and probably already have) but I’ll let the press release speak for itself. Ghost in the Shell 2.0 […]

There, he and his pal Andy tried their hands at dubbing Yellow Menace’s favorite movie, Ghost in the Shell. Funny Stuff We’re treated to Batou sounding like the guy from the B-52s, a long conversation […]
