Sakura Fest 2017

I went to Sakura Fest 2017 in Tokyo today!  It was a really amazing event and has already left both the Japanese and International fandoms buzzing!

Perhaps the biggest and BEST surprise was the reveal of the trailer for the Original Animation DVD coming out with the Special Edition of Volume 3 in September.

You can watch the trailer for the OAD here.

The rest of my rundown is below the cut. :) Most of it was posted on Discord earlier tonight in #ccs-general as well, so if you missed it and are curious, please have a look.  I added in a few extra details as they came back to me.

“My Heart iidasenai, Your Heart tashikametai”
Goddess Family Club

The opening credits sequence for the Ah! My Goddess OVA series. I’ve always enjoyed this song, and my favorite part is the countermelody during the chorus (the ‘la la laaaa’ bit). 

So I got bored and looked into the Japanese dub of Star VS...

Three of the most interesting little factoids are:

1. The series is called something along the lines of  Devil Buster★Star Butterfly   (a much more badass name for the series if you ask me)

2. Queen Moon is voiced by Aya Hisakawa, the original voice for Sailor Mercury in Sailor Moon

3. Marco is voiced by Kazuyuki Okitsu, the voice actor for Jonathan Joestar in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure

The first time I watched Fruits Basket, I watched it in dubbed and I thought Yuki’s voice was so annoying. Then, a few days ago, I was watching some Fruits Basket videos on YouTube, and there were some subbed and I thought, “I wonder what the sub is like for this anime” and then I found out that Yuki’s voice is played by a woman and I just said “why”. In conclusion, I don’t like Yuki’s voice in either form.“
