A trek through Bishop Museum's Anywhere Door

April 11th, 2014
By



And now, the post that's taken far too long for me to write.

Waaaaaaaay back in mid-February, "Meet Doraemon: Japan's Time-Traveling Cat" took up residence at Bishop Museum. In the time it's been here, this town has gone robo-cat crazy, partly because of the exhibit, partly because of an unrelated visitor stamp rally hosted by HIS Hawaii. So sure, you'll come across a banner heralding the exhibit's presence at the museum's campus in Kalihi ...

... but you may also see Doraemon and friends on the side of a LeaLea Trolley on streets near Ala Moana and Waikiki.

Or, if you were watching the Honolulu Festival's Grand Parade last month, you could see him being wheeled along the parade route.

It's been a fun past few months, but you only have nine days left to see it -- the Doraemon statues, Fujiko F. Fujio artwork, Anywhere Door and a whole bunch of other stuff will be packed up and head back to Japan after April 20.

I could go into excruciating detail as to why it's taken so long for this post to be written -- the cold! the writer's block! Kawaii Kon prep! But the main point is that time is running short, there's another museum free-admission day right around the corner -- YMCA Healthy Kids Day on Saturday; kamaaina and military with valid ID, step right up -- and I wanted to get something posted on the record before then.

I'd also be remiss if I didn't mention that if you sign up to be a museum member now, you'll get a special Doraemon-edition membership card. Annual memberships start at $50 general, $45 seniors and $35 students and net you admission to the museum, along with a number of other perks that pile up at higher tiers. But c'mon, is this not the coolest museum membership card you've ever seen?

It should be noted that it's possible to see Doraemon at a number of points between Kalihi and Kahala right now. I'll go into that in more detail in my next post (along with details about a contest this month that's quietly unfolded on Instagram), but today's post focuses more on what's on display at the museum. Whether you've already visited, have yet to do so or can't make it out here before it closes, I hope you'll enjoy this virtual tour of 67 percent of the exhibit.

As for that other 33 percent: You're going to have to figure out some way to see that for yourself. The gallery portion of the exhibit, featuring manga pages drawn by Fujio, is off-limits for photography and video recording. This much can be said about it, though: In that section, there's a timeline of Fujio's career, a giant photo of his desk, and five themed galleries, each one based on a Doraemon movie: Nobita's Dinosaur (1980), Nobita's Great Adventure Into the Underworld (1983), Record of Nobita's Spaceblazer (1980), Nobita and the Steel Troops (1985) and Nobita and the Haunts of Evil (1981).

It's a pretty even split between Fujio originals and reproductions on display — 36 of the exhibit's 70 pages are originals, 34 are copies — but it takes a really close look at each piece to tell which is which.

That, of course, and the assistance of the handy Copy Robot icon.

Next time in Otaku Ohana: Noticed all those statues sitting around the exhibit? There are 10 at the museum ... and another 13 (that I know of so far, anyway) out in the wild. I'll have a guide to where you can find all of them ... if you're as obsessed as I am about such things, anyway.

Ota-cool Incoming!: EVERYTHING IS AWESOME

February 27th, 2014
By



Today's post is brought to you by The Lego Movie. It's not a formal sponsorship (which is too bad in a way, because after seeing that movie, I want to go out and buy every last Lego Movie set out there.) Rather, it's because the Otaku Ohana Anonymous Director of Forced Social Interaction and I caught it Wednesday night (yes, we opted for that over The Wind Rises, but hey, I already saw it and we're willing to wait until it hits Consolidated's discounted GMT list starting March 7). We enjoyed it thoroughly. And then I woke up this morning with the song lyrics EVERYTHING IS AWESOME, EVERYTHING IS COOL WHEN YOU'RE PART OF A TEAM stuck in a loop in my mind and these guys menacing my laptop.

'Sup, primary Lego Movie antagonists Lord Business and Bad Cop.

It's strangely appropriate that that song is stuck in my mind, because there are some pretty awesome events coming up starting this weekend and running ... well, into April, really. So sit back, pull up your favorite calendar-planning app, and let's dive right in:

Taku Taku Friending Party!Taku Taku Matsuri "Friending" Party: Play games and meet people at this mixer for local otaku. Non-alcoholic "mocktails" with names like "801 Breeze," "Ichigo Pantsu" and "Yuri Paradise" are being created exclusively for the event and will be available for $4 each. Tickets for $15 are available at takutaku.ticketleap.com/friending-party/; you get your choice of one of four mini-bentos included in that price. For ages 16 and up. Nagomi Japanese Teppan and Lounge (1687 Kapiolani Blvd.), noon to 5 p.m. Saturday.

"Anime Rocks!": It's Kawaii Kon's third annual pin launch party, and they're pulling out all the stops to make sure anyone who shows up is suitably entertained. EMKE is back to rock the house; this time they're being joined by Streetlight Cadence, a local quartet with a cellist and accordionist, which automatically makes them one of the coolest groups ever in my book. Augie T, the official emcee of all things Kawaii Kon, will be on hand to ... umm ... emcee. And if the specialty drink-loving side of you didn't get enough at Saturday's "Friending" Party, there's one to try here as well: Kawaii Kon Punch, in both alcoholic and non-alcoholic versions. (Drink responsibly, people.) Hard Rock Cafe Waikiki (280 Beachwalk Ave.), 2-5 p.m. Sunday.

Comic Jam Hawaii: This group of collaborative cartoon artists has just one official public gathering in March so far, and it's coming up Sunday at Pearlridge Center. If you're really want to see some of this group's work, though, head out to Honolulu Hale, where there's an exhibit in the first-floor courtyard spotlighting their work as well as that of MangaBento and late cartoonist Dave Thorne through March 13. I'll be swinging by there and chronicling that exhibit in a future post. Visit www.facebook.com/groups/ComicJamHawaii (Facebook login required). 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday.

Kawaii Kon Karaoke Kompetition: The road to KKX continues with this, the last of three preliminary rounds for the anime convention's annual karaoke contest. Aspiring singers, read up on the rules at kawaiikon.com/events/karaoke/karaoke-preliminary-rounds/, then make your way to Orvis Auditorium on the University of Hawaii at Manoa campus. 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. March 9.

Honolulu Festival: It's the 20th anniversary edition of the festival promoting harmony between Hawaii and the Asia-Pacific region; the theme: "Jubilation, One Heart, One Pacific, One World." Just as in previous years, Kawaii Kon will have an exhibit, and the Nagaoka Fireworks display will put a bow on the proceedings. And there may be a special announcement involving your friendly neighborhood anime/manga blogger next week, too ... Hawai'i Convention Center and other venues around Waikiki, March 7-9.

Ongoing

The Wind Rises screenings: Of course, you knew about these already.

photo-main"All Eyes on Me": If there's one thing I feel guilty about not covering until now, having been up to my eyeballs in stuff related to The Wind Rises and Doraemon in recent weeks, it's this Kickstarter project by Saki Kashimura, a local artist who's sold some of her work in the past in Kawaii Kon's Artist Alley. She's looking to publish a 32-page art book with pieces she's done from 2012 to now. With nine days left, she's already surpassed her goal, but there's still room to jump on board. You can see what she's done in the past at www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=676479; check out the project at www.kickstarter.com/projects/880144282/artbook-all-eyes-on-me.

"Meet Doraemon: Japan's Time-Traveling Cat": Fujiko F. Fujio's most beloved creation is here and cute-ing up the Bishop Museum campus, as you can see here.

A Doraemon statue with the Honolulu skyline in the background. Pretty cool, really.

Ten statues, a replica of the Dokodemo (Anywhere) Door, sketching and coloring stations, a manga library featuring Doraemon manga volumes from around the world and samples of the new English-language digital edition on iPads, a 10-minute animated short playing on loop, and an exhibit of original Fujio manga art ... do you really need more reasons to visit? If you consider yourself an anime/manga fan, you must go. I'm even working on a photo tour of the exhibit for a future post as further proof. Admission is $19.95, $16.95 for seniors, $14.95 for ages 4-12; $12.95, $10.95 and $8.95, respectively, for Hawaii residents and military. Visit www.bishopmuseum.org. Through April 20.

Future attractions

Kawaii Kon 2014: Guests for the 10th anniversary edition include voice actors Jim Cummings, Ayumi Fujimura, Quinton Flynn, Richard Horvitz, Tetsuya Kakihara, Vic Mignogna, Nicki Rapp, Michael Sinterniklaas, Stephanie Sheh and Janet Varney; musical guests EMKE, Kagemaya Hironobu and Yoko Ishida; professional cosplayer Leah Rose; Misako Aoki, Lolita model and official Japanese kawaii ambassador (really, it's a formal title); the Chalk Twins, traveling performance artists who will be crafting a giant chalk mural; and local comedian Augie T., serving as emcee. Online preregistration is open through March 22; $42 for a three-day pass for children ages 5-12, $52 general admission. Hawai'i Convention Center, April 4-6.

13 for '13: Otaku Ohana's year in pictures

January 3rd, 2014
By



Happy three-days-in-but-still-relatively-newish year! It's hard to believe that June will mark five years since this blog gained a home on starbulletin.com as an online complement to Cel Shaded. Five years, coincidentally, is also the amount of time it would probably take for me to catch up on all the anime that I've been meaning to review in this space if (a) every single anime producer, both in the U.S. and Japan, were to stop releasing anime at this very second, and (b) I watched anime 24/7/365. (And let's not even think about the manga.)

I'm hoping that review situation improves this year. But before we move forward, let's take a quick look back at some of the highlights from last year, captured by my trusty camera (and in some cases, my equally trusty smartphone). Some of these pictures have appeared in this space before. Others, I never got around to posting (curse you, real work getting in the way of fun work!). For remembering the year that was 2013, though, they're fun jumping-off points.

Congratulation! A winner is you! (Jan. 12)

p-IMG_1065

The final edition of the Liliha Library Anime Art Contest culminated in an awards ceremony at the beginning of the year. Rachel Ruiz placed second in the grades 6-8 category with this piece, for which she won a lovely bag of prizes.

Meanwhile, at the back of the room where the awards ceremony was held, young adult librarian Linda Mediati set up a table with a pile of donated Shonen Jump issues, English and Japanese editions, free for the taking for anyone who wanted them.

Judging by how many Rachel carted off, you wouldn't be too far off in saying she won twice that day.

The surprise of Haruhi Suzumiya (March 17)

p-IMG_1712

I've mentioned before in this space that I have an affinity for anything and everything related to the Haruhi Suzumiya franchise. So when Haruhi character designer Noizi Ito was announced as a guest for Kawaii Kon, I was ready to go to pretty much anything and everything at which she made an appearance. Hour-long live-drawing panel? Yes, please. Hour-long live-drawing panel where she draws Kawaii Kon mascots Ai-chan and Nami? Oh, yes, thank you very much. Hour-long live-drawing panel where she casually unveils the final cover for her newest Haruhi artbook for the first time anywhere? Oh, baby, yes.

And in case you're wondering whether the book made it out to Japanese audiences: Yup.

Spartan assault on our hearts (March 17)

p-IMG_4472

This is the only shot in this collection that wasn't taken by me, but by one of Kawaii Kon's staff photographers, Zarli Win. (We'll see more of him in the next picture.) From where I was standing during the Kawaii Kon Masquerade, my trusty-yet-lacking-in-low-light-situations camera couldn't have gotten anything as good as this. Being there to soak up the mood was awesome, though: the announcement of the contestant, this little girl in her "Halo Kitty" outfit -- a Halo Spartan suit embellished with Hello Kitty accessories -- walking out on stage, the collective gasp in the audience giving way to squeals and applause and a barrage of flashbulbs going off around the room.

Wedded bliss (June 2)

p-IMG_2496

Tag-team partner in fandom Wilma Jandoc married longtime boyfriend Zarli Win in early June. It was a pretty big deal 'round these parts. Was it a ceremony that was full of Win? But of course.

Cait Sith, art guardian (June 18)

p-IMG_2630

As it has for the past few years, the Honolulu Museum of Art School's second-floor gallery hosted MangaBento's annual exhibit. The 2013 edition, "Tomo-E-Ame: Friends-Drawings-Candy," featured anime-inspired art in a wide variety of media. Among the pieces was this doll of Cait Sith hand-sewn by Heidi Shimada that, when viewed at a certain angle, looked like it was gazing over the gallery.

A master immortalized (July 27)

pp-20130727_124513

Cartoonist Dave Thorne -- best known around these parts for his Sunday comic strip "Thorney's Zoo" -- may have died in 2012, but he left behind a body of work that remains beloved to this day. In July, several hundred people showed up for a celebration of life at Bay View Golf Park, with samples of his cartoons posted all over the clubhouse auditorium. One of the highlights was a "chalk talk," with Alan Low narrating scenes from Dave's life as Jon Murakami sketched on a giant pad of paper. The last drawing, done in advance: this. A fitting tribute to someone known as "the Yoda of Hawaii cartooning."

Taku Taku dancing dancing (Aug. 25)

p-IMG_3172

Taku Taku Matsuri, spearheaded by Yuka C. Nagaoka, debuted in August with a summer festival at Hawaii Kotohira Jinsha-Hawaii Dazaifu Tenmangu. Games were played, art was drawn, food and other collectibles were sold, cosplayers roamed the grounds and played a round of Cosplay Chess, and everyone had a good time.

True to her word in my interview with her, Yuka showed up in a bright red kimono. She even jumped on stage with some of the other cosplayers and danced to Psy's "Gentleman."

Crossing cosplay (Sept. 15)

p-IMG_3403

In September, Gallery Iolani on the Windward Community College campus hosted "Crossing Cultures: The Art of Manga in Hawaii," an exhibit tracing the history of manga and its influence on artists in the local community that was curated by Pen & Ink Works founder/Hachi Maru Hachi contributing artist Brady Evans. Brady also led a series of curator's tours for four straight Sundays, where he'd talk about various exhibits ... like these costumes of Alphonse Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist and Teddie from Persona 4, part of the section talking about Kawaii Kon.

Oh yes, if you missed the exhibit, don't worry: Brady's already told me it'll be returning in 2014. Details to come.

When "aloha" means goodbye (Sept. 17)

Test caption goes here.

Toys N Joys, known for years to a certain generation as the go-to place for anime merchandise, domestic and imported video games, closed its doors for the last time on Sept. 23 after a 30-year run in Kaimuki and a 25-year run at the Westridge Shopping Center in Aiea. This whiteboard, sitting in the same display window where toys, replica swords and Airsoft guns once sat in the Kaimuki store, served as a sounding board for some customers to pay their respects.

Angelic consultation (Oct. 2)

p-IMG_3497

The time between Oct. 1 and Nov. 3 was one of the busiest I've seen for the local fan community in quite some time. The month got off to a hot start with two events taking place on the same day: Mini Con at McCully-Moiliili Library, and Kawaii Kon's Anime Day at Windward Mall. I thought I'd be the only one crazy dedicated enough to make the drive over the Koolaus and attend both events, but it turned out there was another trio: Guardian Angels Dana Aton and Susana Choy of Cosmic Koi, makers of black and white hand-detailed angels' wings and plasma ear pieces like these, and their adorably adorable lolita-clad daughter, Bella. Here, Bella and Susana shared a moment together at Mini Con.

The Macross miracle (Nov. 2)

p-IMG_3722

Local anime convention Oni-Con Hawaii debuted this year, and while it had its share of problems, there were some fun times to be had as well. One of those fun times was at the "Filmmaking in Hawaii" panel, where Blood of the Samurai director Aaron Yamasato and Doko Ga TV host/"Japanmania -- Sugoi!" blogger Pali Kaaihue talked about some of their projects.

But then came their Fabulous Swag Giveaway. Now, you have to realize that in the upcoming season of Doko Ga TV, Pali talked to some really cool people, including Masako Nozawa, the Japanese voice of Goku in Dragon Ball Z, and Yoko Kanno, composer of anime soundtracks that fill me with warm fuzzies like Cowboy Bebop, Kids on the Slope, Ghost in the Shell: Stand-Alone Complex, Wolf's Rain and some of the newer series in the Macross franchise. Accordingly, one of the items Pali gave away was something from Macross Frontier. The winner? Milton Streeter, former leader of the Japanese Animation Society of Hawaii and co-host of the "Anime Clubs in Hawaii" panel that took place immediately preceding this particular panel.

As you can see, he was a tad bit enthused.

The art of library talks (Nov. 6)

p-20131106_193319

I'm not sure how many times over the years that I've attended talks by nemu*nemu artist Audra Furuichi about the creative process that goes into her thrice-weekly online comic strip, but one thing's remained constant: Those talks are always fascinating, and fledgling artists could learn quite a bit from them. These two girls certainly took advantage of the opportunity, practicing sketching on Audra's tablet after an evening talk at Kapolei Library.

The Journey continues (Dec. 22)

p-20131222_132814

Journey of Heroes, the graphic novel recounting the story of the 100th Battalion/442nd Regimental Combat Team in World War II, went into a second printing toward the end of the year, with the first public sale of those new books at the Honolulu Gift Fair in mid-December. That's author Stacey Hayashi in the background ... and behind the table in the foreground, helping her sell books and other merchandise chock full of chibi soldier goodness, was MidWeek cartoonist/Cacy and Kiara author Roy Chang.

And that was 2013 in a nutshell! 2014's already getting off to a busy start with Comic Jam Hawaii returning to Pearlridge on Sunday (1-4 p.m.!) and the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaii's Ohana Festival on Jan. 19. Is another fun year loaded with plenty of pictures in store? You betcha.

An update on the Sakai fundraiser

November 30th, 2013
By



art2aWhen last we left the fundraising effort to help Stan and Sharon Sakai with Sharon's mounting medical bills, the PayPal link for direct monetary contributions was broken. As of today, it's still broken. And apparently it's not getting fixed any time soon, either; Stan noted in a Facebook post early this morning that it'll probably take a few weeks to resolve. (There's an update on Sharon's condition in that post, as well. Oh yes, and you don't need to have a Facebook account to read his updates.)

Good news for those of you who want to contribute right away, though: The Comic Art Professional Society has set up a P.O. box where people can send checks for the cause. (Since the average Otaku Ohana reader tends to skew toward the older demographic, I trust I won't have to explain what a "check" is in this day and age of direct electronic transfers, PayPal and ATM cards.) Make checks payable to CAPS or Stan Sakai and send them to:

SAKAI FUNDRAISER
C/O CAPS
P.O. Box 656
Burbank, CA 91503

There's no deadline for contributions, but if you're like me and tend to forget about things the further out they are, you'll probably want to contribute sooner rather than later.

Season of giving, season of sales

November 28th, 2013

Isle-born Stan Sakai, creator of the comic book Usagi Yojimbo and longtime letterer for Groo the Wanderer, is highly regarded as one of the Really Nice Guys in the comic industry. Tag-team partner in fandom Wilma J. and I found this out firsthand back in 2006, when we sent him a bunch of questions for a Kawaii Kon preview article and he sent back enough material to write that article, an online-exclusive supplement with his travel journal and artwork that ended up gracing our weekend section cover for our con coverage that year. He's been a guest at two Kawaii Kons -- 2006 and 2009 -- and I'm sure anyone who sat in on one of his panels would agree that he's quite an engaging fellow. Here's a picture of him at Kawaii Kon '09 with a sketch of Usagi, his most famous creation.

IMG_0977

What many people probably didn't know, though, was that around two years before Stan's first Kawaii Kon appearance, his wife, Sharon, had been diagnosed with a benign meningnoma brain tumor. And while radiation treatment and regular MRIs seemed to keep it in check in subsequent years, according to Stan, it started growing aggressively again in 2010.

The story since then, from Stan's post to his Facebook page on Tuesday:

She has facial paralysis on the left side (everything happens on the left side). The paralysis includes her throat, vocal chords, and it has even deteriorated her neck bones. She had lost almost 40% of her body weight in a year. She is undergoing chemotherapy. Doctors don't see any end in sight for this. There are complications because of the tumor, medications, or just coincidence--diabetes, high blood pressure, rapid heart rate, compromised immune system. She has a tracheostomy tube for breathing and a G-tube connected to her stomach for a liquid diet. She can take nothing through her mouth. She is bed-bound, but we try to give her daily physical therapy--walking a couple hundred feet with a walker and/or sitting in a wheelchair.

She had been in the hospital and nurse care from April to September, but we are glad she is home. She requires 24 hour care, so daughter Hannah and her family moved in with us. This includes 18 month old grandson Leo, and another grandchild due in February/early March.

While there have been regular updates on Sharon's condition on Stan's page, friends and colleagues have largely shown their support by sharing their thoughts, prayers and well-wishes with the couple. Now, however, a more formal campaign to help pay for the mounting medical bills has emerged: CAPS, the Cartoon/Comic Art Professional Society, is organizing a charity art auction and is now soliciting donations from artists worldwide. The actual auction itself will be announced at a later date. Artists, you can find a form that you can download, fill out and send in with your contribution at www.garageartstudio.blogspot.com/2013/11/help-stan-sakai.html. If you aren't artistically inclined but still want to donate to the cause ... well, this part of the post was where I was supposed to write that you could go to that same Garage Art Studio post and donate via PayPal, but the link is broken at the moment. Stay tuned either here or to my Twitter feed for any further updates.

To Black Friday and beyond!

This special holiday shopping edition of the Ota-cool Incoming! calendar, spotlighting one special anime-themed shopping event and craft fairs where regular local anime con vendors like idkwhat2wear, Bit of Sugar and Team nemu*nemu, Audra Furuichi and Scott Yoshinaga, will be selling stuff over the next few weeks, is unofficially brought to you by "Black Friday vs. Cyber Monday," a classic nemu*nemu comic strip from 2009.

Can't make it to any of these events? Vendor websites are linked in the paragraph above. It should be noted that nemu*nemu has their holiday sale running through Dec. 16 (might I recommend the $25 e-book bundle with all six volumes, freshly recolored volumes 2-4 and introductions by industry luminaries including a certain friendly neighborhood anime/manga blogger?). Audra's taking commission requests, to boot; I've always had to restrain myself from buying every single piece Audra's ever drawn, so now's your chance to have that very same conundrum of choosing what you want to buy. Meanwhile, over at idk's site, you can only buy their shirts at the moment, but every order comes with two randomly chosen buttons.

BLACK_FRIDAY_FrontArt+Flea Presents "Totoro Black Friday": The monthly "destination for creatives, by creatives" takes a Ghibli turn this month. Shop for one-of-a-kind handcrafted items from dozens of vendors. and celebrate the works of Hayao Miyazaki, to boot. Swing by the Photo Ops Hawaii photo booth or watch Andy Lee of Charisma Industries work his drawing magic live, too! Admission: $3, but you can take $1 off if you come dressed as your favorite Ghibli character and another $1 if you bring a new, unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots. Fresh Cafe (831 Queen St.); 5-10 p.m. Friday.

27th Islandwide Christmas Crafts and Food Expo: With idkwhat2wear and Bit of Sugar. Admission: $4 general, $3 military families and seniors 65 and older, free for children 12 and under. Neal Blaisdell Center Exhibition Hall; 4-9 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sunday.

Hawaii United Okinawa Association Winter Craft Fair: With idkwhat2wear (yup, it's a split-squad weekend for them!), the nemu*nemu crew and all the fresh-out-of-the-fryer andagi and other tasty Japanese treats that you can afford to eat. Admission: Free, but $5 will get you into the banquet hall (where idk and nemu*nemu are) 30 minutes before the formal opening time. Hawaii Okinawa Center (94-587 Ukee St., Waipio Gentry); 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.

Moanalua High School Winter Craft Fair: With idkwhat2wear, the nemu*nemu crew and Bit of Sugar. Admission is free, but bring your walking shoes if you're not there at the crack of dawn waiting for parking, because you'll probably be hiking from somewhere in the surrounding Salt Lake neighborhood. At the high school, 2825 Ala Ilima St.; 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 14.

Honolulu Gift Fair: Stacey Hayashi, author of the 100th Battalion/442nd Regimental Combat Team graphic novel Journey of Heroes (now heading into a second printing!), will be one of the vendors in attendance. Admission is free. Blaisdell Exhibition Hall; 3-9 p.m. Dec. 20, 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Dec. 21 and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Dec. 22.
