The ABC Award!

abc-award-logoHey guys, Samurai here again, and it looks as though my good friend over at “Annalyn’s Thoughts” anime blog nominated us for the ABC Award! Yes, I know it’s just a “Get to know you” kind of thing, but dawg gone it, any positive recognition is good recognition!

In any case, here are the award rules that I will follow to the best of my ability:

1. Download the award logo and add it to your acceptance post. [Let's see. Yep. Done that.]

2. Nominate a few fellow bloggers and share the award. [I'll do that at the bottom of the page...but I don't have that many...]

3. Since the award is ABC, take each letter of the alphabet and use it to tell something about yourself. [Alrighty then! Here we go...] Continue reading

Breaking News: Eureka Seven to be Re-Released by Funimation On April 22nd

Eureka and Renton from "Psalms of Planets Eureka Seven"Hey guys, Samurai here once again with some breaking news for you! Remember a while back when we reported that the anime Psalms of Planets Eureka Seven was licensed by Funimation Entertainment? Well, the inevitable has happened–the original 52 episode series and the movie Good Night Sleep Tight Young Lovers, will be hitting shelves on April 22nd in both DVD, Blu-Ray and Combo-Pack formats. Indeed, no more searching for hours for the individual volumes including the illusive Volume 11–you can now have the complete collection on whatever medium you fancy for prices that would make your jaw drop.

At the time of this printing, you can pre-order Eureka Seven just about anywhere; Funimation, Best Buy, and Wal-Mart all have the DVD’s and Blu-Ray disks available at very competitive prices, so if you feel so inclined to relive the epic romance of Renton and Eureka, then consider pre-ordering right now so you can have this prodigious series in your collection!


But what if physical media is not your bag? Got ya covered. Funimation is currently streaming Psalms of Planets Eureka Seven on its Elite Video Subscription services in both subbed and dubbed format for your viewing pleasure. It’s about $7.95 a month, but you get a free 14 day trial. So if you’re truly a cheap skate–I recommend you get the 14 day trial and marathon the heck out of this series before canceling.

I wanna go back to doing what I established this blog for in the first place--lending my voice to the anime community and hopefully the Samurai Editorials will help with that. Enjoy! ] Continue reading


A Tag-Team First Reaction of “Seitokai Yakuindomo: Season 2”!

Cajun Samurai: [::bows deeply::] Happy 2014 everybody!

Otaku Andrain: We survived the end of the world to see another year.

Cajun Samurai: Indeed we have. For those of you who are still following us, we thank you for your support over the last year, and we hope you will continue supporting us knuckleheads in the coming year.

1389057941136Otaku Andrain: Well Boss, this last week was absolute murder, all the anime took a week off pretty much.

Cajun Samurai: Yeah, but hey, with the holidays falling like they did, the creators probably figured they would sneak in a break…and SOME of them, for the most part deserved it.

Otaku Andrain: You know full well my Long series could have easily gotten an episode ahead and I would have forgiven QUALITY (Quality in all caps is defined as REALLY, really terribly drawn frames.) But no, nothing!

Cajun Samurai: Right, right…I know those feels very well…especially with my long series. Good Grief. But, that was then and this is now…and now is the winter of our Discontent…or rather content, as this week kicks off the winter 2014 anime season!

Otaku Andrain: This season is not gonna be all that strong. I’ll give some of them a chance, but frankly, two non-Sengoku Anime about Oda Nobunaga is just getting old.

Cajun Samurai: Maybe, but I’m pretty optimistic that we might get some good stuff from this season in the form of returning champions–Silver Spoon, Nagi no Asukara, Golden Time, Space Brothers…and our topic of discussion for today…

Otaku Andrain: We’ve mentioned it before, the most perverted non perverted Comedy of them all. Proving it’s not always men that scrape from the bottom of the barrel.
