D&A Friday’s: When It Comes to Anime Crime Dramas, It’s Kill or Be Killed!

Normally this would be the part where we’d say something right before we give you our overview of our pick, but we’re gonna skip that and get right to the good stuff. Cool? Alright, let’s begin.

Are you looking for an anime title that’s akin to The Sapranos or even The Godfather? Then you’re gonna love this anime title known as 91-Days! The story takes place in a town called Lawless, Illinois where Angelo Lagusta is a young man whose family was killed during a mafia dispute caused by the Vanetti Family. Now he wants to wadge war and revenge against that family, including its don, for what happened seven years after that fateful day. Thanks to a letter sent to him by a friend of his father’s, Angelo now goes under the name ‘Avilio Bruno’ in order to befriend the don’s son, Nero Vanetti, just so he can get closer to the don himself. (And extract his revenge.) The series spans over a 91-day time lapse filled with revenge, blood-shed, and betrayal. If this show has peaked your interest, then you can check it out on Crunchyroll and FunimationNow.

In just two weeks it will be time for us to head off to our final anime convention for 2017, Thy Geekdom Con! Join us as we celebrate the 28th birthday of one of D&A’s Founders, Donte’ J. Lewis, on November 4th and 5th at the Crown Plaza hotel in Claymont, DE. Also on the quick update chart; starting January 1st of 2018, we’ll be rolling out new times for our most-loved segments in order to keep up our commitment in bringing you the best reviews in anime and manga. (We’re even reviving some segments that have gone on hiatus since this past Summer.)

Also coming on January 1st is the launch of our music playlist page that is now shifting over to the name Bassandramada: Kontrol Room! As always we appreciate all the love and support that you’ve given us thus far, and we hope to continue doing what we do best while giving it our all! Stay gold, my friends! 😉

D&A Update: Anime Cons (Part 2)!

Sorry to keep you guys waiting for us. If you’re still looking for some anime conventions happening for the Pre-Halloween weekend, then you might wanna check these lil’ numbers out! We’ve got cons in the Southwest and Northeast Bound regions of the U.S. for you and your friends to chillax and have fun. Don’t forget, if you happen to be heading towards Claymont, DE for the first weekend in November, we’ll be celebrating the 28th birthday of one of the founding members of D&A Anime Blog, Donte’ J. Lewis!

Until next post, stay gold! 😉

D&A Friday the 13th: Superstitions, Anime Titles & Updates!

So it’s Friday the 13th, eh? That’s cool, although we’re not that superstitious about it. (Michael Myers, Jason, or Junko Enoshima hasn’t slashed our throats in yet so that’s a good sign.) Now that we’ve gotten our scare tactics out of the way, we’ve got some great anime titles and updates for you all to check out!

p186419_b_v7_aa

If you’re looking for something haunting and scary to watch on this (supposed) unlucky day, then gaze your eyes on this anime title known as Blood+! This series was inspired by the 2000 anime film Blood: The Last Vampire, however this title only borrows a few of the allusions seen from the movie. Saya Otonashi is an ordinary anemic amnesiac school girl who’s blood possesses the power to kill an evil bat-like creature called Chiropteran. Armed with a special katana to help her fight against the threat, Saya travels the world to not only rid it of these creatures, but to gain the secrets of her past and to help recover her identity. This series is filled with action and horror fiction, so only fans who are 18 and up can check this series out. (On Crunchyroll or FunimationNow, that is!)

Now it’s update time! Although we said that the Kontrol Room will open October 23rd, we’ve decided to push it to January 1, 2018 in order to give ourselves (and our DJ/Producer) more time to create some top-notch tracks for you guys to listen to. Also if you haven’t heard the news regarding our 2018 tour, we unfortunately had to cancel three of our appearances due to LOF (Lack Of Finances). We do however have a brand new 18+ panel that we’re hoping to debut on one of our con stops known as D&A Against Humanity! It will have all the uncensored fun that you love about Cards Against Humanity (CAH), only with us behind the wheel! (And two lucky fans or ours!)

We’ve got more filler posts and more anime cons coming around the corner, so keep your eyes peeled for what’s comin’ up next on D&A Anime Blog! It’s a part of you! 😉

D&A Friday’s: Of Masterminds and Anime Conventions!

So we’ve reached the oh-so spooky month of Halloween, and already people are making their way to their nearest Halloween costume store (or Party City – Shoutouts to them)! If you’re an anime fan who loves to cosplay, then every day is Halloween, especially during anime conventions. Speaking of which we’ve got some cons for you guys to check out for the month of October coming next week, but for right now we’ve got some awesome anime titles for you to check out!

terror in resonance

If you’re looking for a mystery-thriller about the struggle of terrorism, then you’re gonna love Terror in Resonance! The story takes place in an alternate timeline of the present, where a sudden major terrorist attack has just decimated Tokyo. While the FBI are on the case to figure out who the culprit(s) might be behind the attack, they find a cryptic piece of evidence in the form of a video that has now sent Tokyo into a state of paranoia. Rumor has it that the masterminds behind this attack are two teenage boys (who shan’t be named) who thought it was a good idea to “shake up the world”. Will they get away with it? Or has the FBI found some leads that might trace the evidence they found to them? Find out on Crunchyroll and FunimationNow!

We’re happy to announce that we’re currently in production of creating some high quality music tracks for you to listen to, while you’re surfing through the blog! Although there will be 16 tracks in total for our Kontrol Room playlist, there might be some hidden ones that you can only find on our Patreon page. We’ll be working hard to bring you some locations for some anime conventions in your region, plus some updates for the birthday celebration of D&A Founder Donte’ Lewis, as he and Aaron Goldman make their way to Thy Geekdom Con the first weekend in November!

Stay tuned, my friends! 😉

Miscellany Monday: The Future is Now!

Wow! It’s hard to believe that we’re already a few days into the Fall equinox, and yet it still feels like the heat of the Summer just doesn’t wanna leave yet. While we wait for the temps to cool down just a little bit, we here at D&A Anime Blog are getting ready for some new things that are soon coming to the forefront! Before we jump on that let’s jump on some lesser-known anime titles that we searched high and low for, in order to bring them right here to you guys (the fans)!

Stellvia-of-the-Universe-image-stellvia-of-the-universe-36245070-1280-820

If you’re looking for a coming-of-age tale set in the 23rd century, then check out this anime title known as Stellvia of the Universe! The timeline of this series takes place in 2356 A.D. just 189 years after the Earth suffered an apocalyptic blow, that wiped out 99% of the entire population. The remaining population built massive space stations known as “foundations” in order to keep track of all the space activities that would be occur. Shima Katase has just finished the Space Academy’s Entrance Exams, and is now on her way to the Earth-like foundation known as Stellvia (the titicular foundation). Her goal in life is to explore the galaxy while doing everything she can to prevent Stellvia from suffering the same fate as Earth did, 189 years ago. You can find and stream this series on Crunchyroll and FunimationNow.

Three weeks from today, the Kontrol Room will be open! The music playlist page will contain electronic music genres such as Dubstep, Drum n’ Bass, Trap, Chiptune, Moombahton, and so much more! All of the music for this 16-track playlist will be produced by the blog’s own Donte’ J. Lewis (aka Super Dangantronixx).

That will do it for us update-wise. We’ve got more filler posts and additions to our Voice Actor Spotlight series coming up soon! 🙂
