Animation studio BONES, known for their work on titles ranging from the Cowboy Bebop movie to Full Metal Alchemist and My Hero Academia, is currently holding a 20th Anniversary Exhibit at the Tokyo Anime Center in DNP Plaza. Each part of the exhibit will cover different shows that the studio worked on, with Part 1 having finished yesterday and Part 2 opening tomorrow.
Entrance to the exhibit is 1000yen and photography is permitted. Here’s a few pics from Part 1.
The man, the legend, the mover of mountains (and chewer of leaves) himself, Nobutoshi Canna was a guest at Otakon back in August. Friend of the site and podcast contributor Cassie was lucky enough to meet him and talk about what went into playing Basara…

As we board the hype train leading up to Kazutaka Miyatake’s exhibition of original artworks, let us look at a recent interview with him conducted earlier this year for the “SDF-1 Macross: Thorough Dissection” book — you know, the one which also doubles as an enormous 1/2400 scale papercraft model of the Fortress Exceeding Space and Time itself (the cover of the book stoically assures us that it is genuine “Deculture Scale”, no less).
The translation starts right after the jump! (I tried to be as accurate as possible, and that is why the four in-text notes are oddly numbered: there are two #3’s, and there is no #1. )
This is the second podcast that we recorded at Super Dimension Convention in September. Instead of the usual round table format, we tried something a little different…
A table, an open mic, a very noisy dealers hall… and you.
Maybe this isn’t the best idea. Maybe it’s the best idea ever. Maybe it’s just really really noisy. How it turns out, is up to you, the fans at the con who were generous enough with their time to sit down and talk with us. So thank you – you all know who you are. I hope.
Special thanks to Andrew Collie for spontaneously co-hosting and Revan for getting the word out and also for the photos. Thanks guys!
The Walkure Cafe 2018 opened yesterday at Harajuku’s AreaQ. Similar to last year’s Walkure Cafe, this year’s focuses on the recently released Bluray of Walkure’s 3rd Live and features original merchandise, video interviews with Walkure and a collaboration menu put together by the girls themselves.
Due to the video footage playing constantly throughout the cafe, photographs were only allowed in a select few areas. The following are a few that the SpeakerPODcast Crew managed to get.
The Walkure Cafe is open until November 25th and an online ticket/booking is generally necessary to enter.
