When we think Halloween, we think a number of things bound to happen on that awesome annual days: telling scary stories, setting up fake haunted houses, kids trick or' treating around their respective neighborhoods, people finding Halloween-themed episodes on their television sets, comic colletors picking up their copies of free-to-access comic book items at their local comic shops (if that Halloween day is on the last October Saturday of the year that is), and last but not least, the option to dress up in costumes in public regardless of if they be home-made or store-bought. While you are never too old to enjoy Halloween, it is indeed a day worth celebrating for anyone who is a fan of science-fiction, fantasy, and/or horror and likes wearing costumes or just masks.

Last year at ENR, I celebrated the 35th anniversary of the Gundam franchise with a look back at one of my favorite Gundam productions Mobile Suit Gundam SEED. Then presented a review on the first two episodes on last year's Gundam television series Gundam Reconguista in G (or "G-Reco for short"), which I was unable to finish watching after seeing a number of episodes as it became unavailable online. I may not be able to watch everything Gundam animation, but the Gundam fan spirit in me still lives on strong. Read more...

Back in the mid 2000s, Chorus Entertainment, the parent company of Canadian kid-friendly television network YTV, announced plans for an anime-themed television network called "The Anime Channel". Unfortunately, it never had the chance to launch, which is a bummer as I was hoping it would provide airing space for anime series and films that made it to Region 1 DVD but still never got aired on Canadian television. Now, jump to 2015, very little anime content airs on television in North America, many anime titles still flop in R1 DVD sales despite a huge deal of genre diversity (an ironic tragedy indeed), very little amount of anime films (or none at all) appear in movie theaters on an annual basis, not much anime-distributing nations outside Japan have their own anime-themed networks, and just recently, the classic animation-themed T.V. network Teletoon Retro, which could have included some anime from between the 1960s and the 2000s in its schedule if it had the guts, went bye bye.

For many years, a number of filmmaking countries (including the United States and Canada of course) each has maintained a history of creating works of fiction intended to re-interpret characters and/or stories that originated in storytelling from another country, sometimes changing the setting of the story in particular and/or cultural backgrounds of main characters. The U.S. film and television industry, for example, has a history of creating films and television programs based onJapanese content; 1960's The Magnificent Seven being a cowboy re-imagining of the 1954 samurai-themed film The Seven Samurai, the 1993 Saturday morning cartoon series Sonic the Hedgehog being based on the popular Japanese video game franchise from Sega, 2008's Speed Racer being a remake of the 1960s anime with American actors playing and capturing the visual likenesses of the classic's main characters, 2014's Godzilla being a hit film that placed Godzilla's main battle in the U.S. while being faithful to the character's essence, etc.  Read more...
