Daily Heroine: Eiko Magami

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Eiko (or A-ko, if you prefer) Magami, from the 80s anime film Project A-ko (and its numerous sequels). Eiko, with her eye-catching long red hair and iconic Japanese high school uniform, is one of my favourite anime characters of all time. In fact, she is a big reason I got into anime in the first place (along with Mai Kuju, of course). She is cute, sassy and devoted to her best friend Shiiko. On top of that, she has superhuman strength!šŸ˜® In the original Japanese version she was voiced by Miki Ito, and in the English version she was voiced by Stacey Gregg (who now goes by the name of Stacy Jefferson).

I’m always on the look out for new interesting and likeable heroines, so if you have a particular favourite, please tell me about her! Till tomorrow, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you.šŸ˜Š

Daily Heroine: Kathy

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Kathy from Animal Treasure Island, the 70s animated film from Japan. In the original Japanese version (which is titled Doubutsu Takarajima), she was voiced by Minori Matsushima. Unfortunately, I was unable to find out who voiced her in the English-dubbed version, which is the version I first saw as a kid. Kathy, a pretty yet feisty gun-toting pirate girl, is the first heroine I really fell in love with, and so she is the root of my lifelong admiration for heroines in general. If only she had appeared in other movies or an animated TV series. That would have undoubtedly made her my number one animated girl!šŸ˜†

This is the fourth illustration I’ve drawn of Kathy, who is one of my all-time favourite cartoon characters. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!šŸ˜Š

My Thoughts On: “Resident Evil: Vendetta”

I was worried I might not be able to get to see Resident Evil: Vendetta, as the cinema chain showing it here initially only had two screenings scheduled. But, for some reason, my local cinema increased the number of screenings to twice a day for at least a whole week! Iā€™m happy that they did this, but I do wonder if they will do this again in the future for similar films; in total there were only five people in the cinema, two of whom came in half an hour into the movie. But now onto my thoughts on this film.
