We gotta admit; 2020’s been something else. Before we start we just want to give our thoughts and our prayers to the family of Alex Trebek, who passed away from his on-going battle with cancer. He was the host of one of America’s favorite game shows known as Jeopardy for 30 years, and will be truly missed. It’s been quite a week for us at D&A, but we do have some posts/articles heading your way this week!
Space Dandy: An Underrated Spectacle
This series is one of our faves that doesn’t get a whole lot of credit. In fact the story and the tone of Space Dandy is different from any anime out there; no matter what genre it is. This week we dive into what makes this show special, and why it’s a ‘standout’ from all the rest.
Shimoneta: The History of Censorship in Japan
There has been a LOT of controversial/crazy anime titles to ever come out of Japan; but with a country being so conservative about its views and behavior, there’s also its history regarding its battle against anime censorship. We look at the context and the concept of this lil’ show known as Shimoneta; that highlights the very battle between censorship and lewdness in Ecchi/Fanservice anime titles that a faction of fans like. (We say ‘faction’ because not all of us are into these titles.)
Cosplay: The History Behind Why Nerds Love To Dress-Up
America dresses up once a year, nerds dress up every weekend! Evey year at every convention, outsiders unfamiliar to ‘Nerd Culture’ wanna know why 10,000+ 20-something’s and 30-somethings’ (and even 40-somethings’) dress up in cosplay that they may (and may not) be familiar with. We take a dive into the history of cosplay, and why it’s so popular among Millennials and Gen-Z.
That’s what we’ve got going on this week! As always continue to stay safe and love one another. 🙂
