Hello Kitty is from England, Soul Eater takes place in Nevada, and then there is the entirety of G Gundam.
It is fascinating to see how Japanese animation reinterprets Europe and the Americas.
Soul Eater takes place in Nevada
You all and your fanfictions with the characters as Japanese complaining when others write them as American.
Except for a select few. Soul Eater is pretty culturally inclusive.
Tsubaki and Tsugumi are from Japan. Anya likely is from Europe. Many of us have headcanon about from where other characters hail (Ox from England? Harvar and Jacqueline from France?).
I continue to reflect on the enjoyable experience of Florida Supercon back in July, not only for getting to see impressive original artwork from vendors and meet with majors names in animation, comics, and other entertainment, but also to recognize the kinds of panels that take place at fan conventions. In addition to the Q&A sessions with celebrities, I was impressed by the informative sessions (voice acting/directing, legalities of fan-inspired works, history of shows and genres, designing cosplay).
In January, I’ll be giving a presentation at a national literature conference, in which I talk about how my experiences in fan communities inform and motivate my scholarship—my research, teaching, and writing. While I have presented at many academic conferences, I have never presented at a fan convention.
And I would appreciate your help in deciding a topic to propose.
I’m having difficulty narrowing down the idea for what I would want to present. I’m leaning towards adapting my January 2015 presentation, in which I discuss how I have used my enjoyment of pop culture to guide my scholarship (I research nineteenth-century American literature, but I also publish on animation, comics, and superhero stories) and my teaching (which has resulted in students submitting essays on representations of race and gender in Motorcity, comparisons of portrayals of the Joker, and my own lectures on allusions to transcendentalism in Fullmetal Alchemist).
But I also have a variety of topics that I’m considering, and I’m open to suggestions. A lot of them are much more academically minded, but I’m open to suggestions on additional topics if there is something that you want to hear discussed and that I actually could discuss informatively and clearly.
Which topic would you like to hear me discuss at a panel at Supercon 2015?
Let me know what you think—I’d like to give a presentation that would attract fans to attend!
I’m still laughing at the coincidence of queueing up the TsuStar pic such that it posted at the same time as I re-blogged the Kid x Excalibur pic.
lana2452 is awesome.
You… You really think that of me, senpai?
Hey, you’re not doing it right—
See? You need a sparkly Kid!
Thanks again for your DTK Week contributions, and of course Excalibur x Kid.
Bootyful. I love it.
The enies lobby arc is the longest in the entire series (in the anime or manga, dressrosa is getting close to it in the manga)
That being said, I think the long length of those arcs will affect me much less compared to the pain I will feel with Ace, Whitebeard, and even Coby in the Marineford arc.
