Cooking with Elfman

Naruto’s Ramen

tumblr_m88rehtGQa1r6xu90o1_500

Ingriedients

  • 2 Packages of Top Ramen
  • About 5 cups of pork or beef broth (You can use the stuff in a box, the stuff in a can, or the cubes or the paste)
  • Pork tenderloin
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Baby bok choy
  • 1 Green onion
  • Soy sauce
  • Optional:
  • Aburage – that’s those brown sticks on the right side of the bowl, it’s a type of soy product that’s used when you make inari-zushi.  It’s some of my favorite stuff, and you should be able to find it at an Asian food store.
  • Nori – I forgot to put this is mine, but it’s those black/green sheets sticking out of the back.  You’d probably be able to find this at any grocery store with an Asian foods section
  • Kamaboko – This is that white thing with the pink swirl.  Its made of a sort of fish paste that is steamed into like a cake.  I know it’s kind of distintive in the Naruto ramen, but I didn’t have time to go and grab some from an Asian food store (which is where you’d have to get it).

Directions

  1. Marinate the tenderloin for at least 3 hours. You can use just soy sauce, or a mixture of whatever other Asian sauces you want. Teriyaki would be good, as would some mirin.
  2. Preheat your oven to 450, then cook the tenderloin for 12-15 minutes, or until cooked all the way through.
  3. Put your eggs in a pot with enough water to cover them. Bring to a boil and cover with a lid.  It should take about 10 minutes to hard boil the eggs.  Then pull them out and put them into a bowl of cold water to cool.
  4. While this is happening, pour or mix the stock/broth in a pot and bring it to a simmer.  You can add soy sauce or mirin to taste.
  5. Once simmering, add the Top Ramen noodles. Do NOT add in the flavor packets.  Let that cook.
  6. Now, we cut up all the toppings!  Peel the eggs and slice them in half, cut the pork,  kamaboko, bok choy, aburage, and green onion into thin slices.
  7. Serve up the noodles and broth in a nice deep bowl, then place all the ingredients in groups on top, and add in a few small rectangles of nori.  Itadakimasu!

Portal: GlaDOS Cupcakes

portalgladoscupcakes12

Ingredients:

Cupcakes
White frosting
1 cup white candy melts
Black gel
Black food coloring
Gummy candies (blue, yellow, red, and purple, but you don’t need all of the colors)

Ingredients for Royal Icing (for half a dozen cupcakes) :

2 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoons meringue powder
Several tablespoons warm water (2-3)

Directions

1. After baking your cupcakes of choice and allowing them to cool, take the white candy melts and zap them for 30 seconds in the microwave. After the timer goes off, stir, and place back into the microwave for another 30 seconds. Repeat until the candy melts are completely melted.
Take a cupcake and dip into the bowl of candy melts. Repeat for all cupcakes. The candy melts will begin to harden, so you’ll want to be quick!

2. After dipping all the cupcakes, take the black gel and dab a bit in the center of the cupcake.

3. Take a gummy and push on top of the black gel. The colors of the GlaDOS cores are blue, yellow, red, and purple. My bag of gummy candies had reds, oranges, and yellows, so no cool colors for my cupcakes.

4. Allow the cupcakes to sit for an hour or so for the candy top to harden.

5. When you’re ready to use the royal icing, mix together the powdered sugar, meringue powder, and one tablespoon of warm water. Add a tiny bit more water if the mixture is too thick.
Leaving a few tablespoons of royal icing in the bowl, take the rest and add a tiny bit of black food coloring, just to give it a gray tint. The smaller amount of royal icing can be dyed black. Once both colors have been fully incorporated, scoop the icings into sealable plastic bags.
Cut off the corner of the bag with the gray royal icing, and draw the following outline on all of the cupcakes

portalgladoscupcakes08

6. Next, cut the corner off of the black royal icing bag and draw straight lines above and below the gummy, but don’t draw completely all the way to the gummy center.
The different colors of the cores have different dots. Purple has one near the bottom, yellow has two near the bottom, the blue has three, and the red has four. Add the dots as appropriate to the gummy color.

7. Make a half dozen GlaDOS cupcakes.

Peeta’s Chessy Buns

tumblr_inline_mhakotmahc1qz4rgp

Ingredients:
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded gruyere cheese
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tbs cup butter, melted
Directions: 
Preheat your oven to 375º Fahrenheit. Grease a small pan. Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, sugar, salt and the yeast in a large mixing bowl, thoroughly mix. Toss in 1/2 cup of each cheese. Add the warm milk, warm water and the oil. Beat for about 5 minutes. Gradually stir in the rest of the flour until you have a soft dough. Put dough on a floured board. Knead the dough until it is elastic and not sticky, adding more flour if necessary. Place in a greased bowl and then flip the dough over to grease the other side. Cover the dough with plastic wrap. Let the dough rise in a warm environment for approximately one half hour. Punch the dough down, cover again and let rest for 10 more minutes. Cut dough into 20 separate pieces. Shape each into a sphere. Dip each ball in melted butter. Arrange balls in two layers in the small well greased pan. Cover with a paper towel. Let rise in warm place until balls are almost to top of pan, about one hour. Sprinkle the remaining cheeses over the rolls. Bake on the lower rack of a preheated 375°F oven for about 35 minutes or until rolls are firm and golden. Let cool for 5 minutes and enjoy!!

fairy_tail_by_yuruikarameru-d5ucdou

This week’s fanarrt is titled Fairy Tail and is drawn by YuruiKarameru. Elfman thought that this fanart was worthy of episode 100. When asked what stood out the most all he could come up with was “whirly whirly swosh swosh” to describe all the magic in the picture. Carla picked at the fact it looks like she is missing a finger on each hand, while Elfman and Natsu said she was not. The crew as a whole thought this was an amazing fanart and there could not have been a better one chosen for episode 100. This image got a rating of (in bra sizes) 2 =DD.

Fairy Tail 347: Red, Blue, Blonde Hair Fight

fairy_tail_347___lucy_by_i_azu-d6j3i9x

The fanart for this weeks chapter is titled Fairy Tail 347 – lucy and was drawn by i-azu. The crew thought there was some things in this chapter that were awesome, and some that wanted to make us want to face palm…like Virgo. Natsu really wants Flare to join Fairy Tail. He also did not like how this chapter only focused on the girls and kinda left everyone else out of the chapter.

Otakon 2013 Review

Just to start off, this was our first time at Otakon ever.

IMAG0088

The first hurdle was finding our badges and that was a bit of a chore seeing as how most of the staff at the lines did not know where we needed to go. Thankfully we didn’t have to wait in the giant line for them, we went to the registration desk and they pointed us in the right direction. I understand that Otakon is a huge con, but having to go to another hotel outside of the con was a bit frustrating, even at Anime Expo you pick up your badges for pre reg, press, and walk in at the same area. We were glad though, for the press lounge and the interview rooms being separate from the rest of the con. By the time we had gotten there we had missed our interview with Kyle Hebert due to complications at the hotel, but this was our fault and not the convention’s. Happily though, he showed up a bit later and agreed to join us on Konoha Corner for one of our live shows, this ended up being much better than we had originally planned, so it all worked out well in the end. Sadly the only person that we didn’t get a chance to interview was Maile Flanagan, Naruto for the Viz dub. Hopefully next time we will be able to interview her at a con, get her on the show, or be able to give her a card.

IMAG0089

The lines were extremely long, getting to the autograph line an hour early didn’t guarantee you were going to make it inside either, and several press people were denied entrance into the room despite talking to the guests prior to their panels to arrange to make sure they got certain things signed. Several times the lines were either cut off an hour to 30 minutes before the guests even arrived, or the guests were moved from one room to another, and live tweeted about it. Sadly most of the people in line who needed this information did not own smart phones, so they stood in line to get an autograph from someone who wasn’t even there, then when they finally got there, they find out not only had they been moved, but that they were now gone because no one showed up for some time, simply because it was changed last minute. These are things we heard from talking with people after we had already gotten a chance to meet with the guests and getting stuff signed. It was the first time I had felt horrible for having press status and being able to go in relatively early, even though we had been waiting for over an hour before the ones we needed to be at began.

20130810_131432

The dealer’s hall was massive and offered lots of amazing things, it was a bit confusing to navigate, but really, what dealer room isn’t? Tracking down the booth for Little Kuriboh took us about 25 minutes, however finding the Crunchyroll, FUNimation, and Aniplex booths, was simple.

20130809_180903

The staff was very kind and professional with us, not sure if that was because we were press or because we actually knew how to be polite when asking questions.

Our only main issue was that the map was a bit confusing when it came to finding panel room 6 in the Hilton. But the staff was very helpful in pointing us in the right direction. Again this was our first time at Otakon and we were just beginning to learn the layout.

20130809_175021

Cosplay; there was a huge amount of cosplayers, and a wide variety as well. Unlike most cons I have been to this year, Otakon was not overpopulated by one specific cosplay group. *cough* homestuck *cough* In fact we got a lot of great pictures there that you can view on both our Instagram and Tumblr pages. Though Tumblr has more, since we didn’t like cropping the images.

Once you get over the size of the con and learn to walk through it without bumping into to many people you start to get used to it, and it begins to feel like a much bigger version of the cons you are used to.

20130810_175816

The biggest difference of course, is the guest list. Todd Haberkorn and Vic Migogna are at so many cons that it’s almost common place, but groups like TM Revolution and Home Made Kazoku as well as Yoko Kanno, Shinichiro Watanabe, Crispin Freeman, Kyle Hebert, Mike McFarland,  and Masayuki Ozaki just to name a few. So yes Otakon is well worth your time and money and we would go back in a heartbeat. We drove 10+ hours to be there and would gladly do so again, but I think we’ll just take a flight next year and make things easier.

Long story short, we had lots of fun and can’t wait to do it all over again, and hopefully miss less stuff next year, because we got lost so many times.

This weeks fanart for the chapter is called Fairy Tail 346 Flare and was done by KazuyaG12. Natsu thought that the two treasure hunter guild members putting in cat mask and pretending to be Happy and Carla was a elephant in the room. He like how it was the magic that was made small not Erza and Natsu in the physical. They were made small as a side effect of their magic being shrunk.

Manga Review: Chapter 346 The Law of Retrogression

Hey guys Carla here to bring you this weeks review of the manga. Now just a reminder this is my opinion of the manga.There are some spoilers, so if you have not read this chapter or the chapters leading to it. Then I suggest you not read any further.

Chapter 346 The Law of Retrogression 

flare_rescue__chapter_346_by_jasmineblack-d6gctup

Fanart by JasmineBlack. Click on the name to see more from this artist.

Click the fanart to read the chapter. 

So this weeks chapter continued with Erza and Natsu being kids again. Erza finds out that she still has some magic ability, but her ex-quip is much slower. Which would not be a problem if it was not for Minerva showing up and challenging her. And face it, this woman just does not know when to go away. I was annoyed when she showed back up, but to keep a story going we need a villain: which at the start of this arc I thought was going to be the treasure hunter guild.

Anyway back to this chapter. While Minerva is challenging Erza, Natsu meets Minerva’s guild mate who is responsible for turning them into children. Now Natsu getting punched and tossed around was hilarious, not going to lie. But I mean really, who hits a kid? Natsu’s decision to pull a child’s prank on the guy was a good idea, cause face it…he was not going to win this fight. But we also learn that his magic only works on “humans” and he admits that he is not human…so what is he?

This could not be a chapter of Fairy Tail if there was not a little fan service, so you get a almost butt shot of Wendy. Wendy then tells Lucy that they are being followed by the treasure hunter guild. Who apparently thinks that putting on cat mask and pretending to be Carla and Happy is going to help them get Lucy’s keys. Nice try, props for the effort but no go there peeps, sorry.

At the end of the chapter we see Flare, now the fact of her showing up had me scratching my head. But as I read the words and noticed her guild mark I was suspicious. She stopped the bullet from hitting Lucy or Wendy, but what is she there for? What guild is she with? Also is she good or bad? We will just have to wait until next weeks chapter unfortunately.

Overall I give this chapter a thumbs up, it was funny, but kept the story line moving. It also left me wondering what will happen next. So on a scale from 1-10 I give it a 7. Stay tuned for next weeks manga review.

First I would like to start off by saying that all the opinions in this review are mine alone and you are encouraged to disagree and comment below if you want to state you opinion as well.

I will devote my first portion of the review to the dub exclusively.

The second will focus on the story and animation, even though both have been out for a while.

I will be blatantly honest with both.

Let’s start with the new characters that popped up in this set.

Wendy & Carla

302255-pt43

When I first heard Wendy’s voice I didn’t know what to think, it certainly had that sweet little girl tone too it that I was looking for, and before I knew it I had grown accustom to Brittney Karbowski’s role as Wendy. Carla on the other hand took a bit of time. I had to listen to the Japanese version a few times, and then switch back to the dub to compare how they both sounded. The qualities of both versions were essentially the same, but the Japanese Carla seemed to have a little more cuteness. Eventually I did get used to Jad Saxton as Carla, and she did do a good job coming across as a “bitchy Mary Poppins.” Which is, more or less, how she acts to everyone until the Edolas arc ends. She is still a nag towards practically everyone, but in less of a degree and by that time, Pantherlily has joined the group helping to balance out that issue. So I look forward to seeing how things go during the Tenrou Island before fully making up my mind about Jad as Carla.

The Trimens

9247333_orig

To be honest, this was the easiest decision of all the characters. They were spot on; I felt the actors were cast perfectly. They nailed the quirky personality traits of each member of this playboy trio. The fact that Aaron Dismuke was the eldest of the trio was the most ironic part for me. That aside, I thought his role as Hibiki would be the most difficult for me to get used to having heard him as Alphonse Elric for so long. It seems however, puberty is working in his favor for this role. Hibiki seemed to have the correct amount of maturity I was hoping for. Suffice to say, I was pleasantly surprised. Chris Wehkamp playing the shy guy Ren felt right. And Daniel Litwin pulled off little Eve well with his little brother innocence.

To be honest though, they’re more like this.

Trimens Creep

Ichiya

302277-pt65

Now this one was one I knew had to have good comedic timing, and I didn’t like how the voice sounded, but I was able to overlook that once he started interacting with Erza, and let’s face it. I’m not the director and the Fairy Tail voice cast isn’t my Christmas list. Thankfully, he nailed the comedic timing. This to me, is the most important aspect about Ichiya to begin with. Sorry Chris Guerrero, you didn’t do a bad job, I just find the Japanese version more to my liking.

Jura

322935-gr20

At this point we had met everyone else in Lamia Scale already in season 1 so I will not be reviewing characters that showed up already. Kent Williams, that man could read me the phone book and I would swoon, but that’s probably my inner Yu Yu Hakusho fanboy speaking. I do love this man’s voice I think it would have fit better in Oracion Seis, but I don’t mind him as Jura either, plus Jura shows up more often later anyway, so I’m okay with this. And let’s be honest, I haven’t seen his fight yet since that happens in the next volume, so I will hold any further judgment until then.

Oracion Seis

Oracion_seis

Hoteye

Hoteye

The guy I had the most issue with. Chris Cason is a good actor, and I loved him as Chamo in Negima, but I just don’t like this Hoteye. I find myself almost cringing when he speaks. To be honest though I was so focused on Carla, Wendy, Jura, Ichiya, and the Trimens that I did not switch track to compare him to the Japanese voice. By the time I write the review for volume 6 I will have done that. To me, Hoteye sounds really annoying. I can’t remember if I felt the same way when I originally watched this arc on Crunchyroll back in the day.

Angel

Angel.(FAIRY.TAIL).full.424813

I hated this character when I first watched it. This woman was a bitch, and I wanted to choke her out through my computer screen. Job well done Lindsay Seidel. Because, I wanted to do the same thing through my TV this time. In fact I don’t think I even stopped to think this isn’t Angel.  I think I just immediately accepted it without even knowing it. Hats off to you for fooling my brain like that, at that point I simply got wrapped into the story and genuinely enjoyed shaking my fist in rage at Angel.

Cobra

Cobra_and_Cubellios

This guy… I WANT TO SEE THE FIGHT BETWEEN NATSU AND COBRA DUBBED SO BAD RIGHT NOW!!! That having been said, god what a villain voice… seriously, Jarrod Greene wherever you were hiding this, thanks for bringing it out. I was hoping it to have a more animalistic tone to it at the beginning and I was a little disappointed that it didn’t, but that was just my projection of the character and not what they did with the Japanese version either.

Brain

Brain

I can’t honestly remember what I thought of brain I think at that point I was either paying more attention to everyone else in Oracion Seis, Wendy, or to Jellal. Sorry for my lack of attention.

 Racer

Lyon-vs-Racer-fairy-tail-34998422-1271-700

Jeff Plunk did get more attention from me than Philip Weber did as Brain. That cocky arrogant snot that is Racer, came across well in the dub. After about 5 minutes I was no longer focusing on the voice and was getting into the story again.

Volume 5

I think it’s a good thing though, even though I’m used to the Japanese version and I was hell bent on analyzing every new character, by the second disc I had almost completely forgotten to review the dub and had been sucked into the story. This is exactly what a good dub is supposed to do!

DO NOT READ THIS PART IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED THESE EPISODES YET!!!

To be fair, reviewing the story for this volume is kinda rough since it won’t finish until the next volume and there is so much more good stuff to come, but I’ll give it my best shot.

The introductions of the other guilds.

 Good, but I was focusing too much on what everyone sounded like and not what was going on in the story, so I give it a B+.

The introduction of Oracion Seis.

It was the about the same until they started fighting and I started to get pulled in. A-.

The dramatic race to get to Wendy with Erza’s life on the line.

A+. The parts where the different guilds fought a guild of Oracion Seis’ lackeys was good, but I loved the Naked Mummy stuff. I laughed just as much as I did for the Japanese version.

Jellal Reappears

A+. By the time Jellal and Erza had been reunited I was totally pulled back into the story.

Racer Vs. Gray and Lyon

C+. For some reason I consider this to be one of Gray’s most boring fights, which is sad considering how awesome Gray can be the rest of the time.

Angel Vs. Lucy

A+. The best action of volume 5 by far, the comedy, the drama, and the action are the best of all the fights going on. And the dub shines for all of this fight.

Nirvana on the move

B+. To be honest, my rating for this part is that I have to wait for volume 6 because hardly anything awesome happens during this part.

Over all, I give the dub an A-.

The Story is an A.

And the Animation an A.

If you are a fan of Fairy Tail you must add this to your collection!!!

And if you aren’t a fan of Fairy Tail… WHY THE HELL ARE YOU READING THIS REVIEW?!

Go watch the series from the beginning and stop checking out reviews for a season that starts on episode 49 of the series! 😛
