    Planet B-Boy at Academy of Arts 

    The rumblings are true: Planet B-Boy, the hit film that was brought to Hawaii at last year’s IIFF will be making a return to the islands, courtesy of the groundUP Pirates and the Academy of Arts.

    The screening will go down this Friday night at the Academy Of Arts.  There will be an open b-boy floor, for those interested, and a DJ to keep things moving.  There’s also word that writer/producer/editor/local boy Benson Lee will also be in attendance that night, so be prepared to talk shop with the man.

    All this goes down 6pm this Friday night at the Academy of Arts on South Beretania St.

    For more info on the movie, check out Planet B-Boy online.

    Kawaii-Kon this weekend 

    No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. That really was Goku walking down the street with the Fullmetal Alchemist.

    The show of shows, Kawaii-Kon, is back for another installment. The Hawaii Convention Center will be teeming with anime enthusiasts, collectors of all shapes and sizes and more Cosplay than I would like to imagine in one setting. But, they’re having fun with it, so who am I to knock, really?

    This year’s annual anime convention promises to be the biggest yet. They’ve got an action packed three days of booths, competitions and displays to keep even the most jaded anime fan enthralled for a few hours.

    So, if you see tons of kids floating around Ala Moana this weekend with obscenely sized swords, you know why.

    The convention starts this Friday at Noon and goes all weekend until Sunday at 4pm.

    For more info on Kawaii-Kon, check out the Official Kawaii-Kon website.
