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.

Back in 2014, Brazil held the 2014 FIFA World Cup men's football tournament. In case some of you are not sport fans, FIFA is like the olympics except it is multiple nations just playing one sport against each other. For fans of anime, manga, and Japanese video games, 2014's FIFA proved to be one they can never forget, and we have the Pokémon mascot Pikachu to thank as the iconic fictional mouse got to serve as the Japanese team's mascot during the sport event with approval from Nintendo's The Pokémon Company of course (and let's thank Nintendo too for making this possible). However, Pikachu is not the first Japanese pop culture icon to officually serve as a sport team mascot as another icon, Leo from the Osamu Tezuka-created manga serial Jungle Emperor got this opportunity back in 1978, licensed for mascot use from Osamu Tezuka's Tezuka Productions by the Japan-based baseball team Seibu lions (currently called "Saitama Seibu Lions").

A recurring tradition at genre conventions is that those attending are allowed the option to dress up as characters and mechanisms (like say spaceships and big robots) from works of fiction, and we genre fans can never get enough of them no matter the frequency of people cosplaying each character or mechanism. As a matter of fact, we enjoy seeing cosplays so much that many of us would never dare to attend a genre convention without cameras on us. Read more...

About 8 months ago at ENR, I revealed a list containing 10 Japanese animation works I would like to see get their chances in getting the western animated series treatments through the post "10 Anime Fit for a North American Cartoon Adaptation". For those of you who read it, I hope you enjoyed reading it, and I, for one, had fun writing it. In fact, I had so much fun doing it that I decided to expand the list as I realize that there are more anime I'd like to see get western cartoon that come in mind, and with the recent announcement of the upcoming Netflix-exclusive animated Voltron series Voltron: Legendary Defender, what better way to celebrate than to reveal the additions to my list now, and I'm willing to bet some of you are looking forward to seeing the upcoming 2017 Canadian animated Gatchaman series Battle of the Planets.

I notice that there are a number of pop culture media franchises (and sub-franchises) that manage to have their own special holidays established to celebrate their respective fandoms, whether it be a national holiday or even international one. To give examples, there is Star Trek Day (now officially an April 5th international holiday), Batman Day (debated by some to always be May 1st despite date variation by year), Superman Day (a June 12th holiday), Spider-Man Day (an August 1st holiday), and now there is International Sailor Moon Day (whose first annual day will be on August 15, 2015). Now you are probably wondering, "what can we do to celebrate the holiday that celebrates the fandom we are a part of?". Well, there are usually a number of options we can do to celebrate. So let's take time to explore each option on how to celebrate. Read more...

I don't know how many of you saw the television special The Comedy Central of Justin Bieber on March 30, but for those of you who did, I am sure you have some good laughs from the comedic comments the guests were making about the famous Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber, and I know I laughed. For those of you who never saw or heard of a roast, it usually goes like this: people celebrate the life of a celebrity by poking fun at certain aspects of the celeb himself or herself in a way that refers the audience to what is true about that celeb.  You know, satire. Anyway, after watching the Bieber roast, I have been thinking about what fictional characters in comic books and cartoons I would like to see get roasted and the kinds of funny comments I would want to make if I was meet face to face with them.  Now, before I reveal the characters I would want to roast and what roast comments I would say to each, be warned that this feature at ENR may contain content some readers may find offensive, so READER DISCRETION IS STRONGLY ADVISED.

806755-kantai_collectionFor years, Western culture has been exposed to a number of Japanese gaming franchises with much of them gaining popularity of western gamers along the way. Yes, I'm talking the likes of Street Fighter, Super Smash Bros., King of Fighters, Sonic the Hedgehog, Pokemon (called "Pocket Monsters" in Japan), etc. Now, it appears that Japanese online browsing games are taking their time to develop a fan following in North America as some may notice at anime and/or genre conventions (example: Otakuthon). Anyway, as I was looking forward to what 2015 will deliver in terms of anime entertainment, I found out that an animated television series based on an free-to-play online browsing game featuring beautiful and cute female warriors dressed up in battle outfits based on real-world warships would be launching.
