No GravatarSo here is GovPancakes with Real Otaku Gamer again with another anime review, this time it isn’t something as mainstream as Blue Gender, its more of a hidden gem called Natsume’s Book of Friends . Its about a boy who’s Grandmother was cursed by having the ability to see demons. She held amazing spiritual powers and could fight the demons. As a result she created The Book of Friends and sealed/made the demons she defeated slaves to her every whim just by saying their names.

Now in present time Natsume himself shares the same curse. His parents pass away and he moves from relative to relative while dealing with this curse. He runs to a shrine to avoid some demons and ends up releasing a powerful demon named Madara that takes the form of a Lucky Cat but can transform into a giant wolf-like creature. Madara informs then confronts Natsume about the book and tries to take it. Natsume defeats him and Madara decides to watch over Natsume while Natsume tries to release all the demons, and Natsume promises that Madara can have the book if he dies in return for helping.

Now I haven’t watched the whole anime yet I’m about 8 episodes in and I’m enjoying it a ton. Its a mix of an action/comedy/adventure. The music is pretty fitting to the anime nothing outstanding. The animation is pretty nice and the demons and characters are definitely remember-able and not just basic redraws of the same type. I’ve only found it subbed not dubbed and I’m completely fine with that. What’s drawing me to the anime is the story. Every time Natsume releases a demon he learns more of his grandmother and the demons himself. Also there are others with his curse that he finds that cause conflict. The story just grabs me to watch it.

No GravatarI had a chance to sit down and chat it up with Comedian, Actor, and Voice-Actor Peter Kelamis recently. Peter is most notably recognized as the voice of Goku in the Ocean’s dub version of DRAGONBALL Z. However, Peter is also known for voicing a bunch of other characters in different shows such as Ed Edd and Eddy, Transformers Cybertron, and Class of Titans. We also had a chance to dive into his early career of stand-up comedy and movies/tv shows, including one of his most popular roles in Stargate Universe. Check out the entire interview below, its a total of three parts. There’s plenty of stuff here for everyone, all this and more on this segment of THE BITT.
