Part 1
Part 2

Before we get into the final installment of his talk, I just wanted to note that Alex did put up a post listing all of the OP/EDs that he had used for the Anime Expo presentation. And according to his schedule, he’ll be at Otakon from July 17-19 where he’ll be giving the same presentation so even though you’re reading this, I’d definitely encourage you all to attend since he’s a very enthusiastic speaker and presenter. So with that out of the way, here’s part 3 of his presentation: [Read more...]

Part 2 on Anime OP/EDs: My Responses to Alex Leavitt’s Panel at Anime Expo

The second installment. As you can probably tell, the first part of the talk and by extension, the post, focused more on older series and this post will move into some of the newer stuff. The previous post also had the effect of getting the Cutey Honey OP stuck in my head, partly because I was listening to it while looking for their respective OPs on YouTube. Anyways, here’s the continuation of my thoughts with regard to Alex Leavitt’s panel: [Read more...]

Part 1 on Anime OP/EDs: My Responses to Alex Leavitt's Panel at Anime Expo

As I wrote in my Anime Expo itinerary, one of the events that I had been looking forwards to seeing was Alex Leavitt’s panel covering anime OPs and EDs since I was interested in listening what he had to say about the music and the animation behind that. Alex started things off by giving a bit of background information and how he had already given this talk over at Anime Boston. I didn’t recall a post discussing his talk in great detail from any of the Anime Boston goers, so I think I might as well throw my two cents into the mix. But before I go any further, let me say this: the panel was conducted really well and Alex definitely demonstrated a good amount of knowledge on the subject, especially the history behind the various OP/EDs as well as doing a good comparative analysis on how OP/EDs have evolved over time. The material managed to hit that sweet spot between breadth and depth given the audience makeup, and judging from the crowd reactions, most people were enthusiastic and enjoyed the talk a lot. The only issue was that it was too short (you could seriously make a semester-long lecture series seeing just how much material one can cover). So with that in mind, here were the thoughts that went through my head during that talk: [Read more...]

My Anime-Expo Itinerary

ax-logo

For those of you who’ve been following me on my twitter account, you should have gotten a feel for my thoughts regarding Anime Expo this year and will know that none of the available concerts have piqued my interest. I’m not a fan of Morning Musume by any stretch and visual-kei holds very little interest to me, which means the Moi dix Mois concert is completely out of the question since there are better things for me to waste time on. Since most of the value I derive from AX comes from the concerts, the lack of quality showings left me with little incentive to go, except I think I’ve found enough interesting stuff to warrant the trip. Read on after the jump to see what I will (and won’t) be doing: [Read more...]
