Winter Anime Season

Once again, it’s that time to pick out which anime to watch/blog for the next season. Because of my college’s winter quarter, I’ll only do a full blogging season of one anime. The rest of the list is a (rough) representation of what I will watch, but will only do occasional posts about.

Here’s the chart.

12 Days of Anime, Day 9: My return to blogging

Blogging will eat you alive like 2hu

Recently, I’ve looked over some of my earliest posts on this blog, back when I started this blog around the middle of my junior high school days (2007). My reaction to my earlier days on the internet?

Funnily enough, I noticed that six months into blogging, the way I expressed myself and my writing in general became a lot less cringe-worthy (at least to my present-self!). Don’t know how that worked out, maybe it was puberty or something.

On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

12 Days of Anime, Day 2: The Addiction of Haruhi Suzumiya

Yesterday, I talked about how happy and excited I was about the Rurouni Kenshin revival that has been going on this year, and discussed how godly my hype is for the live-action movie.

But let me just clarify, I’m not only going to talk about notable shows/characters this year (best saved for a New Years post!), I’m also going be talking about activities I’ve been doing that are related to anime as well.

And with that, let’s get on with the second day… *kidnaps a bunch of singers*

Fanime 2012 Haul (a.k.a. the coolest SWAG ever)

Sena Artworks

I bought this art-book bundle that came with a free art bag, wall scroll, and cute card of Sena from Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai. The art was done by a Chinese circle that also included some Japanese artists. The drawings look really nice! Sadly, I can’t find any more stuff from them on Pixiv, since they’re predominately Chinese. Some of the pages are really ecchi, but hey, it was a nice deal for $25. If only I was able to find an artbook of my number one Kobato, everything would have been perfect!

Along with the art book, I managed to snatch me some Haruhi Playing Cards.

Fanime Con 2012 Recap, Photos, and Cosplays

Fanime Con 2012

Being a local to San Jose, it was kind of strange for my friends and I to reserve a hotel room for this year’s Fanime Convention. But hey, sometimes we all need to get away from the house once in a while, right? ^^;; Steven went along too and was, in fact, the brains behind the planning (and photos). What a good guy!

For many of us, it was the first time attending Fanime for the whole weekend. It certainly was for me. And I was looking forward to the event since the beginning of the year, so when the day of college finals were over and the days of endless amounts of cosplay and anime were about to begin, I was absolutely ecstatic.
