Erza Scarlet (Fairy Tail)

Erza Scarlet (Fairy Tail)

Erza Scarlet (Fairy Tail)

On Man At Arms: Reforged a group of Blacksmiths is known for forging weapons from anime, games, and movies. This time blacksmiths Matt, Kerry, and their team recreated Fairy Tail mage Erza Scarlet’s sword and armor. They forge the weapon and armor from steel. The whole process is quite interesting as we see their spin and theories as they forge and we learn some very interesting trivia about knighthood along the way. The last part of the video they hack and slash to test the sword and armor out.

Hai to Gensou no Grimgar

Hai to Gensou no Grimgar

Hai to Gensou no Grimgar (Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash)

Those who have seen the Hai to Gensou no Grimgar anime knows that it follows the lives of Haruhiro and friends that suddenly find themselves spirited away from our world to an RPG-game-like world. They all have no idea how they ended up there and must form a party, learn to cooperate with each other, learn new skills to survive this new world they were transported to.

A secret ingredient to any great anime is a great soundtrack. TOHO Animation Records founded a project named (K)NoW_NAME. (K)NoW_NAME, already know for doing Hai to Gensou no Grimgar’s opening (Knew Day) and Ending (Harvest) songs and other songs in the anime. (K)NoW_NAME also did the third episode song ‘Stand on the Ground’ and TOHO Animation began streaming the song’s video this week.

Saba Shioyaki

Happy, the ‘blue flying cat’ from Fairy Tail loves his fish and today we share an easy three-ingredient fish recipe. The dish is Saba Shioyaki (grilled mackerel), a very common seafood dish in Japan.

Saba (mackerel) is a fish common to Japanese waters and caught all year round, and it is a very tasty fish. Saba is a blue fish, with flaky meat. It can apparently be eaten raw (Happy would like that) if it is fresh, but Shioyaki is the best and basic way of cooking Saba.

We share with you the cooking video as well as the recipe for Saba Shioyaki. If you try the recipe out, let us know how it came out! Please follow our links:

Cowboy Bebop

Cowboy Bebop

Cowboy Bebop and Figure skating?!

Yes, you are reading right. It seems that in the figure skating community there is a figure skater with a passion for anime. Kevin Reynolds, 25-year-old Sochi Olympian from Vancouver dressed up as Spike Spiegel, the main character and performed to the opening theme song ‘Tank!’ from Cowboy Bebop at the Canadian Tire National Skating Championship, and he did it with style. Scoring an impressive 77,65, Kevin finished in third place. That is very impressive. Apparently he dressed up as Link and performed to the music of The Legend of Zelda in 2014 and also performed to music from Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross before that.

Here is a video of Kevin Reynolds’ Cowboy Bebop performance: http://bit.ly/Cowboy-Bebop-Figure-Skating
