Ranma reference in Gugure! Kokkuri-san

Image
In episode 8, Kokkuri finds himself under a curse that turns him into a woman and thus the journey to a hot springs town that cures curses begins!



Of course, in this predicament, there's some subtle references to the anime Ranma 1/2 along the way. As the title character Ranma and his father Genma were both cursed to turn into a girl and a panda respectively when they fell into cursed hot springs in the original manga/anime Ranma 1/2, the writers of Gugure! Kokkuri-san obviously couldn't resist a little homage.








Kokkuri isn't too pleased when it's all a lie and he's still stuck in a female body.
But luckily a bit of yaoi breaks the curse!





This would totally be me with the camera!

Buy all the Sailor Moon clothes!

Image
Japanese fashion brand Tralala just recently put a series of Sailor Moon inspired clothing up for pre-order and I absolutely couldn't resist getting a few pieces. Even my partner said "you should buy these!" and my fate was sealed. I love that anime clothing goes beyond t-shirts/hoodies and you can get nice items that are a bit more dressed up. I can never seem to part with my money over standard designer brands, but slap Sailor Moon on it and it's "shutup and take my money!" time. 
The following are the pieces I've ordered.

These adorable tank tops feature each of the Sailor Senshi's names embroidered on the back of the collar. I have of course ordered Sailor Moon's!
A lovely cable knit cardi with Artemis embroidered on the front. This will be perfect for those colder days! I've opted for the white, which nicely complements the skirt below!
My most favourite piece from this collection is the skirt, featuring a Luna & Artemis pattern pr…

The Last Unicorn theme song cover & movie world tour

Image
The video below is a really nice cover of the main theme song from the movie, The Last Unicorn. There is a screening tour this year of the remastered movie, with the original book author Peter S Beagle being in attendance as well. I thought it would just be an American thing but it looks like Australia has a chance with it being listed in the schedule for July 2016, with exact details TBA. I really hope I can see it, this is one of my favourite movies... as you can probably tell now from my username.
