Hi-Fructose readers need no introduction to the plethora of artists and galleries that were featured in this year’s installment of SCOPE Miami Beach. Known as the biggest worldwide professional show of modern art, 2015 marked the fair’s 15th anniversary. Despite heavy rains and winds that led to water seeping into the fair’s signature white tent, attendance was higher than ever- roughly 49,000 attended compared to last year’s 45,000 attendees.

First Look: 'Mob Psycho 100' Teaser From 'One-Punch Man' Creator

“Japanese animation studio Bones debuted a teaser yesterday for Mob Psycho 100, a series adaptation of the manga by Japanese indie artist, One.

The concept revolves around a shy boy, nicknamed Mob, with psychic abilities who must keep his emotions under control, because when he reaches 100% of his emotional capacity, he explodes.

The talent involved with the show is considerable: director is Yuzuru Tachikawa (Death Parade), scripts by Hiroshi Seko (Ajin), character design by Yoshimichi Kameda (One-Punch Man animation director), sound direction by Kazuhiro Wakabayashi (Eureka Seven, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Soul Eater) and music by Kenji Kawai (Ghost in the Shell, Hana Moyu, Patlabor).”

Weekend Remix: Smooth Ride Through Space

Song: Winds Of Space
By: KazuhirO (Kazuhiro Hayate)
Based On: Hiru no Tsuki from Outlaw Star
Original Composers: Akino Arai and Kow Otani

Get your Grappler Ship ready as we’re taking a nice ride through space for this edition of the Weekend Remix.

Outlaw Star. It’s an anime that pulls at the memories of many who practically grew up on Toonami. A space-western wrapped in a science-fantasy shell, from the characters to the weaponry, this show simply could not fail. 

And it’s why when one of the ending themes, Hiru no Tsuki, plays that fans hearts swell with teary nostalgia.Okay, that’s part of the reason. The other is that Hiru is simply an amazingly somber and beautiful song.

The true beauty is rooted in its simplicity. KazuhirO decided to change things up with this remix, speeding up the famous vocals and setting them up for a trip through a smooth RnB sound. 

Nothing could ever be better than the original tune, but even with that in mind, KazuhirO’s  intergalactic RnB remix is a pretty cool take.

Until next weekend… GO Party!
