To escape the Wolf’s Maw is an impossible fantasy. The bailiff overseeing the Sankt Gotthard Pass is nearly perfect in preventing the oppressed masses from escaping their mountainous prison while still letting traders pass. However, there are those who continue to try, to find a way out to end the tyranny ruining the lives of those who live in the region. Continue reading
It’s very nice to be home again with all of the creature comforts that it entails. One thing that I’m going to have to take into consideration in a few weeks is if I want to amp up my goals a bit while I’m off work for vacation at home. With over 40 hours per week freed up for a couple of weeks, I’m sure I could get in a lot more anime watching (and manga reading) if I so choose.
The thing about traveling is that there is always something unexpected that will crop up and change your plans. While I intended to get through some modest backlog goals while visiting family out of state, unfortunately it wasn’t actually possible.
After a bus full of their classmates crashes, a group of teen girls must fend for themselves in the wilderness as they wait for rescue. However, it might be their fellow survivors and not the elements that will lead to their downfall.
Amuro Ray enjoys spending his time snooping in his father’s data files. His father has been working on technologies that could be game changers in the war with the Principality of Zeon. However, Amuro doesn’t think it will affect him—until a surprise attack results in him piloting the prototype RX-78 Gundam to save himself and the ones he loves.
Well, Pastel Yumi didn’t meet its funding goal over at Anime Sols, which is a bit too bad. While it’s hardly an outstanding series, there are plenty of moments that work very well. I wonder if there will ever be another attempt at funding it, or if it’s 1 and done. It’s hard when it’s up against Creamy Mami and on site that just isn’t getting the traffic it needs to fund things that aren’t the biggest names. Maybe if/when Anime Sols really starts advertising itself, it would be possible to try again and actually succeed.
Thorfinn wants only one thing: to avenge his father’s murder. He is young but agile with his dual blades and a ferocious fighter. However, getting his revenge might be more difficult than he could imagine, particularly when there are so many layers to his father’s death that he does not yet comprehend.
It’s the final day to support Pastel Yumi set 1 at Anime Sols. If you want to see anymore episodes of this series streaming on the site, the 1st DVD box has to be funded. So if you haven’t had a chance, maybe try to contribute $5? http://animesols.com/videos/142
But enough of that, let’s talk backlog.
Due to her kindness to flowers, young Yumi is granted magical powers by two flower fairies, Kakimaru and Keshimaru. With her pendant and wands, she’s able to draw anything in her imagination and make use of it–at least for a little while. But of course there are rules to her magic, and her mascot friends aren’t always the best at telling her these rules in advance. Good thing Yumi has friends and family that she can rely on to get her out of the stickiest situations.
Pastel Yumi is currently streaming at http://animesols.com. More information on how to support the release of Pastel Yumi on DVD in the United States and Canada is available at the end of this blog post.
It still feels very strange that I’m not watching any of the Fall season anime series. Now that the shows are getting into their grooves, it sounds like I might be missing out a little, but you know what? I’m pretty happy working on my backlog and hanging out in the 1980s.
