Interestingly enough, is in Burbank, which I’ve been to several times.
Quite a few years back, when I getting into blacksmithing, he was one of blacksmiths I approached to get an apprenticeship from.
He already had an apprentice though (coincidently, I hung out with his apprentice at a blacksmithing gathering and gave him a ride home afterwards) so he declined.

Tony’s a rather neat guy to hang out and chat with though.

[size=20]‘Bleach The Movie 3: Fade To Black’ Anime Gets Limited Time Hulu Distribution[/size]
July 22, 2014

Viz Media through Neon Alley has put together a new limited time event for Bleach fans by bringing the third movie, Fade to Black, to the Hulu service. The show, which was released on DVD and Blu-ray in North America back at the end of 2011, is available in both English and Japanese with English subtitles now through August 16th, 2014. For those with a Hulu Plus subscription, you can watch this show in HD on your TV, mobile and computer.

Plot concept: A mysterious figure has broken into Mayuri Kurotsuchi’s laboratory in the Seireitei. Rukia witnesses this catastrophe, and the intruders abduct Rukia as she feels something inside of her fade away.

Meanwhile, in the World of the Living, Ichigo and Kon experience a strange disturbance and head to Kisuke Urahara’s shop for some answers. When Kisuke informs them about the destruction of the Seireitei, the two set out for the Soul Society.

What awaits Ichigo in the devastated Seireitei, however, are Soul Reapers who seem to have lost all memory related to both him and Rukia. Ichigo must find out what happened to Rukia and try to save her before the two are forced to part ways forever!

[size=20]Viz Media Sets 22nd ‘Bleach’ Anime DVD Collection Release, Cover Art[/size]
July 1, 2014 at 02:02 PM

Bleach Set 22While it hasn’t shown up on the retail side of things yet, Viz Media has sent out the slim basics of what to expect for another installment of Bleach. The twenty-second set is now scheduled for a September 30th, 2014 release from the company. It’ll bring out another thirteen episodes of the show that covers 304 through 316. The series ran for 366 episodes, so we’re definitely getting closer and it has the potential to finish up in 2015 if things keep on track like this.

The episodes for this set are part of the 14th season of the series which ran from 2010 through 2011, originally starting with episode 266 as the Fall of the Arrancar storyline. The storyline actually finishes a bit earlier in this set as opposed to right at the end as we get a number of standalone stories across it that deals with the draw down from the arc. The set will be priced at $44.82 and will be a bilingual release with a few standard extras expected such as the clean opening and closing sequences and some omake.


This Saturday (August 23) starts the last 10 episodes airing on Adult Swim… if we can make it through them, it will have been a little over 8 years. Gads.
