Cosplay Melee – A Look Back

Back in 2013, SyFy gave us a show called Heroes of Cosplay.  Its purpose (or so we thought) was to give an insight to what was going on with cosplayers, going to conventions, friends, and making costumes.  What we got was twelve episodes of that, plus drama, scripted rivalries, fights, and whatnot.  Granted, reality shows are scripted to a certain extent, but I don’t think this is what we expected.  Since then, we haven’t got much in the way of cosplay shows.  There is Call to Cosplay, but it was only limited to Crunchyroll and a couple of other sites, but not everyone subscribes to it.  Then SyFy brings us Cosplay Melee, done in the style of Face-Off.  And you know what?  It’s good, so good!

On tonight’s show, as we get ready for Zenkaikon 2017, we have some great stories for you! Sad news as we hear about the passing of Ed Blaylock, a talented voice actor and radio personality.

A Yankee in Texas: Anime Matsuri 2017 Report

For the last two or three years, I have always said that you should travel outside of your usual convention area.  I say that because you will expand your convention experience and culture.  Last year was NDK, the year prior was Denver Comic Con.  Coming down to Houston, Texas for Anime Matsuri wasn’t any different.  But I will say that it was quite the fun experience, and it was somewhat reminiscent of AnimeNEXT, which in my book is a good thing.
