Well, Transformers Prime is now finished with the release of Predacons Rising. It’s kind of sad that this great adaption is over. I’ll miss the great music, voices, and especially Starscream’s humor. It’s nice that they actually told a complete story with an ending for a change…a somewhat bittersweet happy ending. Optimus Prime will be missed! Supposedly a new incarnation is going to be released in December 2014. Not sure how they can continue the story or rewrite it once again. We’ll see if it materializes, what with shrinking budgets and a lousy economy…
This is an awesome animation that Fred Perry did. I love how he animated the mouths. I came across it while checking out his latest Kickstarter campaign:
After whining about there not being a convention for the Big Island in my last post, low and behold, I’m introduced to HawaiiCon! Here’s the Kickstarter URL to help support it. Supposed to be held in September 2014 in Waimea:
Are you kidding me?! I’m going! Just think of all those delicious Dandelions they’ll have for sale in the dealer’s room!!! And CS still owes me lunch…and dinner. Shoot, let’s throw in breakfast and snacks too, while we’re at it!
Apparently Kawaii-Kon isn’t the only convention in the state anymore. I guess the record number of attendees caught the attention of Oni-Con based in Texas, and they’re planning a convention this year November 1-3. They’re calling it Oni-Con Hawaii. It looks like they were attending Kawaii-Kon and organizing some events like cosplay chess. I don’t think Oni-Con Hawaii is my cup of tea, though, because most of their guests look to be musicians so far. I attend for the guests, not much else =]
I guess we’ll see if Hawaii can support 2 anime conventions. Personally, I don’t think we can. It’ll be interesting to see if Kawaii-Kon’s numbers continue to increase next year or drop. That will be a good indicator of Oni-Con’s impact. Sigh, doesn’t anyone want to hold a convention on the Big Island???
That’s right folks. A perfectly good torrent site for unlicensed anime has been ruined! They have removed most of the links to torrents, or are still in the process of doing so. All that leaves is a forum. Big whoop. These guys are nuts! Ruining these great sites that have been around and established for a couple of years now. Suffice it to say, I’m removing their link…
