The Pirate Anime FAQ Returns

Date: 2008 August 3rd Sunday [16:31] | Posted By: Joe
Category: > Anime

8 years ago, I wrote an FAQ about piracy in anime, and how to avoid buying pirate goods. It started off as a simple guide as part of a site called Anime Digital, but evolved and improved over the years. It's generally regarded as the most comprehensive guide to pirate goods in anime fandom. A mini version has been printed at many anime conventions and distributed among convention staff to quickly spot pirate goods. The anime industry also use it to make anime fans aware of bootleg goods.

For the last 8 years the Pirate Anime FAQ was hosted on the London Anime Club's web server. Unfortunately it's been unavailable since April because of server problems so we have decided to host the guide on Otaku News instead. We'd like to thank the London Anime Club for hosting the Pirate Anime FAQ for the last 8 years.

The Pirate Anime FAQ has been translated into French and German, thanks to the kind help of anime fans. I'll put the French and German translations up soon. However I've made a few small changes to the FAQ to make sure it will fit with the formatting of Otaku News. As a result the translations will need to be updated too.

The old content from Anime Digital is not lost and we're currently deciding if we should integrate the articles into Otaku News, or archive them as a separate site.

So please update your bookmarks, the new URL for the Pirate Anime FAQ is http://www.otakunews.com/piratefaq.php.

London Barbican Osamu Tezuka Season

Category: > Anime > Film

We've received some exciting news from the London Barbican about a special Osamu Tezuka Season they'll be running from Thursday 18th to Wednesday 24th of September 2008.

The season is curated by anime expert Helen McCarthy (who's written tons of good books and articles on anime and manga).

Osamu Tezuka is the granddaddy of anime and manga, without doubt the most influential and inspiration artist, as always with these events we suggest you book early to avoid disappointment.

New Non Photographic Law is a bit vague

Date: 2008 May 29th Thursday [18:12] | Posted By: Joe
Category: > Current Affairs

Some anime and manga fans in the UK might have heard about the new proposals which would ban obscene images of children. The proposals mainly cover drawings and computer-generated images, however due to certain parts of the proposals being a bit vague, it's not exactly certain what images are classed as obscene. The mainstream press are keen to wrongly cite manga as one such example.

The Daily Yomiuri have an interesting article about Greenhunt, an up and coming anime series shown on satellite station Space Shower TV. What draws viewers to the show is that's it's spoken in the Toyama dialect, the same as the shows creator Toyoshi Miyasaka.

The show it's self appears to be a quirky hit, drawn in a web animation style familiar to those used to watching Flash based cartoons.

Category: > Freaky Things

Mainichi Daily News have an interesting news story about the new craze in Otaku Cafe, the Mother Cafe.

Mother Cafe is in the new Mandarake outlet in Osaka (Mandarake are a chain of shops for anime and manga fans, and are evil as they are often packed full of delights to tempt otaku). Apparently the maids take on a maternal air, as they greet guests in motherly tones. Staff's age range from 19 to in their 40's, and they look older than they actually are. The aim is to become a therapeutic cafe, where people can open their hearts to the staff.

We've received details about Projector animation:stimulation Festival at Dundee Contemporary Arts which has some events of interest to anime fans. The whole festival runs from 30th January to 2nd February 2008.

On Thursday 31st January 2008, they'll be screen Satoshi Kon's excellent anime film Paprika (which comes highly recommend by the Otaku News crew), seeing it on DVD is one thing, but the film has to be enjoyed on a big screen for full effect.

On Friday 1st February 2008, the festival will be running a master class with anime expert Jonathan Clements on Japanese Animation on the Digital Age, which will cover the rise of digital animation in Japan. This should be an excellent talk, and we recommend going if you can.

You can buy a festival pass for £50 (or £40 for students), alternatively single screenings cost £5, with a masterclasses costing £10.

The only thing we wish Projector would have is an HTML version of their website for accessibility and ease of use.

Anime fans who can get to Swansea Animation Days 2007, will want to see anime expert Jonathan Clements' talk called Five Girls Named Moe, which focuses on "the history and development of erotic animation in Japan: business practises, technology, censorship and market forces". It even promises to explain what fan service is and looking from the talk description it seems like it will have a few examples too. It's good to see Jonathan doing a talk on this subject, as unlike many people jumping on the anime bandwagon claiming to be "experts" Mr Clements is really an expert who knows what he's talking about, having co-written the Anime Encyclopedia and numerous other well researched books on the subject. We wonder how much moe his appropriately named talk will contain. ^_^

Japanese civil servants in trouble over Wikipedia edits

The article features a classic quote from a ministry official, in case you didn't already know "The Agriculture Ministry is not in charge of Gundam".

Fans have been calling for an English DVD release for some time. Fabulous films previously released the first twelve episodes on Inu Yasha in the UK in one of of the ugliest box sets we've seen for years. Lets hope the MCOG set is nicer.

Manga shares gain in Japan

Date: 2007 September 13th Thursday [8:49] | Posted By: Joe
Category: > Manga

As a slightly strange side effect of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announcing his exit, shares in manga retailers in Japan have surged with speculation that manga fan Taro Aso is the leading candidate to replace Mr Abe.

According to BBC News, Mr Aso is a big promoter of manga abroad. They cite the rise of manga publisher Broccoli gaining 71% and Mandarake (a retail store in Japan which is a treasure trove for otaku), jumping 13%.

The article states that Mr Aso served as foreign minister, and suggested that embracing Japanese pop culture was an important step in cultivating ties with other countries. If this is the case the Otaku News crew would like an invite to Japan to meet with Mr Aso to help promote manga and anime. ^_-

Sadly the BBC gets some facts wrong about anime and manga stating that they have "psychedelic colours and outlandish story lines", and emphasises the more explicit side of anime and manga. They also manage to mention Spirited Away and Quentin Tarantino in the same sentence, which I'm sure can lead to all sorts of associations for those who haven't actually seen the wonderful family film that is Spirited Away.

The article also states that Mr Aso created an International Manga Award to honour non-Japanese cartoonists.
