Dont Worry I Wont Spoil One Of The Best Anime (Live Action) Movie Ever (even though its beenout for like, ever!

I may be understating this, solid , solid fact. Great story, good to great scenes, good to great writing overall solid movie.  The character portrayals are were so good when it was over you wanted to watched the next episode to see what hijinks Lupin was getting into next. At a little over two hours it is a ton of movie with the Lupin the Third feel and if your like me, you wanted to see them steal shit before the whole main plot point start and you want to see what they did with the tension between Fujiko and Lupin, and the cunning was at ten.

       Now Don't worry like I said in the title will not give away the story while explaining why I loved it so much. The movie starts out mid suspense, mid thievery, as you get a glimpse the feature  characters in the anime. It should have come to no surprise that there is conflict brewing and the gang have to react. The action is amazing and as the stylish thieves punch there way through there issues in hopes to bandage there mental wounds. (Have I given too much away?)

Some of the dialogue or writing was fitting, understandably though, some not custom to films outside of the huge American market, might find it a bit cheesy, but I love it and I challenge you, go the entire day without saying something cheesy, I dare you, challenge accepted? With that said some of the writing at no fault of the actors was a little meh, Maybe for English dubbed, suitable translation, yada, yada, I get it, okay, I still loved the movie.

So basically look, Badass movie, Goemon is fantastic, Lupin is dressed well, and Fugiko, well Fugiko is so amazing both to look at and in her role. I don't think you will be disappointed giving this one a shot, if it is not in your collection already and this is just pander to your panda. ....? Okay I am done go watch the fucking movle!!!!

The anime expo 2015 in Los Angeles

Well, What can I say? It was spectacular for two main reason which I will elaborate through the blog. One, I only got to go for a few hours, just that small amount of time was worth every bit of the $30 I paid for my pass. Two, It was huge! So many things to see, so many panels and conferences. I did not want to waste the only time I would get to go this ear standing in line, no, I wanted to look around. I wanted to buy shit! The fate of arriving to a convention to late.

When I walked in from the Pico Bl and Figueroa street I was immediately bombarded with yummy anime goodness. Even though I could not guess all the characters I saw, the impressive cosplay costumes I think for me stole the  show being that this is my first con, for anything. The elaborate costumes and artistry and time it takes put a great deal of the outfits together is as impressive as most of them looked. I recognized so characters like Inuyahsa, The Attack on Titan characters and the dragon ball Z characters. I was unable to locate or at least identify cosplayers dressing like characters from animes that I have recently discovered and enjoy.

Like I said, I was only there for one day, and few hours at that! I took a few pictures but I wanted to keep moving through the convention center to see as much as possible. I went up stairs to the exhibition hall where they were selling and showcasing anime and novelty items. In the back of the exhibition hall was an area called Artist Alley. In the Artist Alley there were Artist selling there drawings, posters and clothing and more. The center of the exhibition hall was the big anime brand tables and novelty character booths. Just imagine trade show on LSD with awesome lights. As soon as I got a chance to start looking around in the exhibition hall, an announcement over the loud speaker alerted that the hall will be closing in 20 minutes. God Dammit! Well, it will give me time to go to the west part of the convention center and find out what's going on over there.

 On the other ide of the convention center was the gaming hall, I forgot exactly what it was called but that is primarily what was taking place in there. The hall was filled with stations with computers and I assume PlayStation 4s and XBOX ONEs VR machines and not to mention arcade games that were obviously inaccessible due to people hogging them or there just not being enough arcade games in the hall. Every station, filled, every arcade game, claimed, so I just walked through and looked to see if there was anything worth sticking around for beside the off chance of someone collapsing from one of the consoles or arcade games and I sneak up and take there spot.

 Wait a second, ON the other side of this giant black section curtain, thing, is a cosplay scene area where you can take pictures wit your cosplay gear on , fucking awesome. I have no cosplay costume but this is an opportunity to take pictures again! I took a few pictures and moved on. Where to go now, I have been here for a couple hours at this point. I go to one of the conference doors to see what panels are about to start, all the lines are so long so, see ya! I head back over to the where I started and take a few more pictures and wish that the exhibition hall was opened, the I made my exit.

 Next year I hope to get a Press badge for the event next year so Strange ills has more extensive coverage of the event. I enjoyed he very small amount of time I was there and look forward to going back. Maybe I will in some cosplay gear, tights and spandex, mask and nipple clamps. I am just kidding, I wont wear a mask.
