Persona Music Words of Soul: Lotus Juice

What you see above is the man whose voice is heard across the world by millions of people. A voice known for the popular franchise Persona, whose responsible for majority of the soundtrack. Doing vocals and writing lyrics alongside Persona Music director Shoji Meguro. Popular among works like Mass Destruction, Deep Destruction and Burn my Dread and many more inside the game and anime soundtracks. His name started becoming known around 2005, but mainly for the Persona 3 soundtrack. I believe Lotus Juice fame should be expanded outside of the Persona universe. As from the title of the post and reading Persona, you know this man is involved in the Anime and gaming industry. But this man is more than any other Rapper. Probably one of the most unique I heard from the Japanese Hip-hop crowd. I’ll be stating on why you should give listening to him; if you haven’t. Read more of this post

A Look Back at Toonami.

Remember back in the day before Youtube, streaming and filesharing were the main thing? All you had was to view your TV guide and wait patiently for your favorite shows to air. Think back about a dozen years before you had your high tech; computers, media players and smart phones, How would you find the shows you wanted to watch for your pleasurable viewing? Especially Anime shows when fansubbers were very underground during the 1990’s and early 2000’s and buying anime in stores were a bit more pricey. Well back in the day, you had something called Toonami. What is Toonami for those who don’t know, Toonami is an airblock on the Cartoon Network Channel that aired some of the greatest action cartoons and anime. Read more of this post

Madoka Magica’s getting a dub

What, really? Yup, Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica is getting a dub conducted by Aniplex USA. Given that they’ve dubbed Durarara, which turned out to be pretty damn good, I can see this dub working, given they have the right voice actresses. Maybe Michell Ruff? Or Kari Wahlgren? Who knows who they will choose? I’m mainly concerned about who will voice QB. Certainly not a deep male voice as that would sound insanely awkward. I’m also concerned how well it would do in the Western States. The last couple of mahou shoujo shows I can recall doing so well last time it aired in the West were…. CardCaptors Sakura and Sailor Moon and they were well over ten years ago. As for Madoka, it seems very uncertain. Maybe the take of a new direction on the Mahou Shoujo genre will do better with the western audiences than expected, maybe not.
