Fanime 2016 — Experience and Haul

Rid­er Hen­shin! This post is com­ing a bit… sor­ta… uh, this post came too late. Fanime was over a month ago, and unlike oth­er years, Fanime 2016 was kind of meh for me. Being sur­round­ed by ani­me is always a pret­ty cool deal and the gam­ing room is always fun, but noth­ing real­ly amaz­ing­ly notable […]

Fanime 2015 Cosplay

Image Cred­it: みつき Last year, I did­n’t take any cos­play pho­tos because the con was over­run with Kek la Kek and Shinge­ki no Kyou­jin cos­play­ers. For­tu­nate­ly for this year, the amount of Ryuuko and Giants died down and I was able to wit­ness a lot more vari­ety of cos­plays. Still, I was usu­al­ly rush­ing around […]

Fanime 2015 Haul

Image Cred­it: さこ from Pix­iv Alright, I’m back from Fanime 2015. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, I’ve come back to a horde of school projects I’ve neglect­ed in favor of my spe­cial once-a-year geek-fest, so for now I’ll just go over the merch I spent my moolah on this year and share the rest of my Fanime 2015 expe­ri­ence […]

FanimeCon 2014 Haul & Thoughts

This year’s Fanime was a live­li­er expe­ri­ence than usu­al, most­ly because half of the con­ven­tion cen­ter was­n’t destroyed under con­struc­tion for once and also because this year was the con’s 20th anniver­sary. The line to pick up badges went abnor­mal­ly fast this year — going by almost instant­ly. We got kind of screwed because we […]

Have a Happy New Years!

Fanime 2013 Overall Experience (and the horrors of Yaoi Bingo)

No, we did­n’t go to the maid cafe. T_T Truth be told, I was look­ing for­ward to going to Ani­me Expo 2013 dur­ing the ear­li­er parts of the year — going to Fanime again this year was some­what of a last minute thing. We end­ed up not hav­ing enough funds to afford going to LA […]

Fanime 2013 Cosplays

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 […]

12 Days of Chinese Cartoons, Day 3: Convention Time!

You know that feel­ing when your best friend is at a fam­i­ly bar­beque while you’re at home writ­ing posts about ani­me and singing sil­ly Christ­mas car­ols? You don’t? Er, yeah, I don’t either! 😛 On the third day of Christ­mas, my true love gave to me…

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

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, […]

Fanime Con 2012 Recap, Photos, and Cosplays

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 […]
