One of the things I love about anime conventions (or any convention for that matter) are the invasion of cosplayers. It was awesome seeing Downtown San Jose being infested and taken over by cosplayers and my fellow geeks and weebs. People might have been pissed by the traffic we caused and the endless lines we induced at restaurants, but we felt dominant! Made the city as “nigiyaka” (so to say) as San Fransisco is every night. It just made those four days and three nights so fun, and now that everything’s quieted down and returned to normal, I’m having post-con depression. I want Downtown Weebland again, dammit!
That being said, there were many great cosplays this year. I stopped to take a picture of almost every one of my favorite characters and shows whenever I came across them, but this is basically a list of my very favorite ones during the weekend. To those who didn’t make it into this blog post, I’d like to say that you definitely all made it to my Facebook albums. Just very wonderful memories overall.
The majority vote for Mio as Romeo is just asking for some disturbing speculations about the fantasies of Mio’s fans.
It’s cool that they can see the rather obvious Slap Slap Kiss relationship friendship between Mio and Ritsu, though. Even if I always thought Ritsu would be the man of the house.
“Even my hands turned yellow!“
[insert head scratch] Uh, what? Yui, I think you mean yellower.
Azunyan makes a comeback. I got my wish! Like episode five and episode thirteen, this episode terribly kindly serviced me.
(EDIT: Editing the url for this post caused me to make a triple post on the Antenna. Many apologies. T_T)
On the brink of death, I saw a glimpse of heaven.
Not much happened in this episode. Of course, it’s K-ON!!, but that’s why I like it.
Writer’s block calls for…
Azusa cosplay dump. Do not proceed if the thought of random Asian girls in cute outfits disgusts you.
The wait for more Lord Haruhi brings along quite a handful of pain towards my faith in Haru-ism, but it’s really just a minor problem when Kyoto Animation keeps on churning out more and more win series to calm my patience down (No, Munto doesn’t count). As a slice-of-life fan, I just can’t get enough of Kyoto Animation making these comedy series with characters doing things that are just win. Of course, with K-ON!, my cohort Steven got an impression that it was the bastard child of Haruhi + Lucky Star, yet good enough to stand out by itself as another one of Kyoto ANimation’s brilliant adaptations. The results? Absolutely fantastic!
And I also applaud them for producing an anime which has inspired a new, creative name for the blog, Keiongaku ♪ 軽 ♪ 音 ♪ 楽 ♪. Seriously, The Otaku Spot was a lame name.
