Manga Review: Auto Maton

Keep your eyes out for this. It's surging in popularity in Japan and should be translated into English soon. It's like a fusion of Ghost in the Shell and Iron Man. The protagonist, Akira, fights as a superhero by uploading his consciousness into a powerful humanoid robot. It's done by the creator of the Journey to the Center of the Earth manga adaptation so you can expect rich details in the artwork interspersed with intense action scenes. In spite of being a sci-fi manga, the mangaka is choosing to hand-draw everything rather than using digital drawing to keep an organic and comic superhero feel rooted into the story.

Anime Review: 3-Gatsu No Lion (March comes in like a lion)

I just finished 3 Gatsu no Lion (March comes in like a Lion) and I think it's one of the most powerful slices of life series that I've ever seen.

Why cons are waiting for a legal "act of God" before canceling

Heya Kitties, we haven't talked very much about what is going on behind the scenes. The reality is that we had a pretty busy schedule planned for 2020 but the closures that started on March 14th have rolled well into June now. We love our fans and customers, so we wanted to share this article that explains why so many cons wait until the last minute to cancel. The bottom line is that most cons are run as nonprofits and they cannot afford the massive loss they would take if they initiated the cancellation. However, the government forced closures to get them off the hook and they either get refunded or the money is rolled over to a future date....

Right now, get 15% off all Lego-Compatible figures at www.kitty-box.com by using coupon code: iluvminis at checkout. They say all good things must come to an end.

So shop now at our website to get them while they last. Thank...
