Ukrainian Girl Transforms Herself into a Real Anime Character

0 comments // in Articles Asian Culture Industry News Photos Video // November 14, 2012 // Posted by muten

Today, I stumbled across an article on Oddity Central covering a 19 year old Ukrainian hairdresser by the name of Anastasiya Shpagina, aka Fukkacumi;  which is her self-appointed anime name.  There have been several stories of women across the world involving themselves in this trend.  There have been many critics, but I think cosplaying (even in the extremes) is an awesome tribute to something which has clearly affected many of us in different ways…  OK, fine – it’s a little weird.

You decide for yourself: Is this going too far?

Fukkacumi would like to invite you to add her as a friend on Facebook, if you wanted to do that for some reason.

One Piece 101 – Monkey D. Luffy

0 comments // in Articles Industry News Video // June 10, 2012 // Posted by muten

FUNimation has posted another awesome dubbed sizzle reel for the Straw Hat Crew’s leader, Monkey D. Luffy.  This video, which runs 2:40 long, is the perfect plot setup for such an epic anime series.  It quickly breaks down the motivations, backstory and ambitions of “Mugiwara no Luffy” without any spoilers to the main storyline.

This being my first time actually listening the English dub voices from FUNi, I have to say  Colleen Clinkenbeard did a fantastic job capturing the Luffy’s essence within her performance.

More Straw Hat 101 coming soon!

Shirokuma Cafe (Polar Bear’s Cafe) First Look and Trailer

0 comments // in Articles Industry News Video // June 8, 2012 // Posted by muten

Spring 2012 brought in an incredible list of new anime.  Many of which, there is only time to read about them when you’re hard at work on your own anime.  However, Shirokuma Cafe (or Polar Bear’s Cafe) is something that has definitely caught my eye. Here’s the plot summary.

“Panda, part of generation cupcake, is prodded by his mother to get a job, but he just wants to eat bamboo. While avoiding his mother’s ire he happens upon a cafe run by Polar Bear, who just so happens to be looking for a part-time employee.”

As seen in the attached trailer, Shirokuma Cafe actually incorporates realistically drawn animals such as polar bears, ant eaters, penguins and many more into a fantasy world where they coexist on the same social level as humans.  The humor in Shirokuma Cafe is largely based around the irony that animals don’t exist in this environment typically and the mishaps that result from such a plot device.  It’s no action anime by any means, but the situational humor could definitely keep me interested. I enjoy a good corny laugh.

That said, I am definitely intrigued by the Shirokuma Cafe world.   Currently, you can view episodes 1-10 on  Of course, if the commercials bother you, consider getting a free trial and going on an anime watching spree!  Memberships at crunchy roll run $6.95 a month.

Be on the lookout for more reviews coming soon, as I plan on throwing a little spare time at this show and figuring out what it’s all about.

FUNimation just released a cool backstory sizzle reel featuring Straw Hat Crew’s 2nd in command, Roronoa Zoro.  This video, dubbed in English, will inform the uninformed about the motivation and relationships of the 3-sword wielding bounty hunter from the beginning of the show.  There is some relevant backstory from Season 1 explained in the video, but no large plot spoilers. Enjoy!
