Dubble Dose - UN-GO and Heaven's Memo Pad Premiere
Posted by: Rai | October 12, 2012
If you've been waiting for us to show you some dubs, then the wait is over, and then some! This week we've got two returning champs in the ring, and they're both ready to go at it with your eyeballs...yeah, boxing metaphors everywhere.
Anyway, other than that, we've got some neat pics to show you of our trip to NYCC, some Bits & Pieces, and more in today's blog. Ding Ding Ding!
Heaven's Memo Pad and UN-GO premiere today with an awesome dub each, so you won't want to miss it. Really, hearing both Inga and Alice speaking English is more than enough to convince some of you to take a peek, so why not? Check out the description of each show, just to refresh yourself.
Heaven's Memo Pad
Narumi Fujishima is an average high school student who prefers to keep to himself. Ayaka Shinozaki is the only member of the school's gardening club who works part-time at the Hanamaru Ramen Shop. After Ayaka persuades Narumi to join the club, he meets the mysterious Alice, a child-like genius detective who lives above the ramen shop. In time, Narumi begins helping Alice investigate a strange illegal drug, not understanding the dangerous ground he walks upon.
Shinjurou Yuuki: The Last Great Detective...or the "Defeated Detective", depending on who you ask. With a love of mysteries and a knack for solving them, the young man's prodigious talents have made him the target of some less than savory people in a near future Tokyo. What's worse, his fellow policemen are not even on his side! With only his quirky assistant Inga, Yuuki must evade friend and foe alike in order to finally prove that he's the best in UN-GO!
Our ANO agents have hit New York Comic Con, and with the convention just starting they're off to a fast start!
Our Anime Network Industry Panel was this morning, and it was JAM PACKED with fans. Thanks, guys! There were so many people in line, some had to be turned away. Sorry! ;_; At the end of the panel, the lucky people who made it in got a chance to win some really kickass stuff, like an autographed Broken Blade poster, some cool Anime Network shwag, and a mini-teddie to call their own!
The Persona 4 Arcana cards are a HUGE hit, so if you're at the con you better get them while they're there! The first 50 people at our panel got the whole set, so they were SUPER lucky. Check out our NYCC Activities Schedule here and make plans to visit our booth at the right times! For those of you who were not able to make it to NYCC, you'll still have lots and lots of chances to win your own set of cards so don't fret.
