Here we are again on this lovely warm Thursday night. School’s almost out, Summer’s a few weeks away, and anime convention season is about to kick into high gear. That’s right fans of ours June is finally here, and we’ve got some exciting news to share with you! But first, it’s time for us to take that Thursday night trip down memory lane on tonight’s Throwback Thursday…
If you’re a fan of 1970’s mecha anime, then you’re gonna wanna check this series out! This title is known as Grendizer, and it tells the story of a humanoid named Duke Fleed, whose planet was attacked by King Vega and the Vegan Empire. Duke takes the robot known as the Grendizer, and uses it to escape the attack of the Vegans before finding himself in our solar system, and decides to land on earth. (Well, Japan actually.)
Once there he befriends Doctor Umon and decides to take the name Daisuke Umon, in order to keep a low profile and protect his true nature and identity. Eventually the Vegan Empire discovers his whereabouts after escaping their attack, and have now set their sights on earth. With Fleed having nowhere to flee (we know, that joke was a tad corny) he now faces the king with the Grendizer, and quite possibly a few allies he met while on earth. If you wanna know more about what happens in this series, you can stream it on Youtube or Crunchyroll if they happen to have it.
Now it’s time for some hot news about our two new page installments! Both of these pages are going to be a part of a new drop down menu that will launch next Sunday called, Anime Sunday’s. The first new page under this new drop down menu will be called Anime Couple of the Week, where we highlight a different couple from one of your favorite anime titles each week. The second page will be called Anime Episode of the Week, where we do a full review on a random episode, from a random anime title of our choice.
Also, we’ll be posting all of the upcoming anime conventions to check out on our Cons Near U page, so be sure to check in on what cons are in your area as often as you can! And on that note, we again thank all of you guys for your continuous support with our anime blog! As long as you remember to keep D&A a part of you, we will always keep you a part of us! 🙂
