Comiket 81: Day 1 Summary

by 17:19
It's that time of year again, where the entire otaku fandom and monarch arrive to participate in the this righteous and holy journey of purification to Tokyo Big Sight for one of the largest and most anticipated conventions of the year; Comiket 81.

This year, Comiket 81 Winter is taking place a day earlier, from 29th (Thurs) till 31st(Sat), unlike the usual Friday to Sunday modus operandi as the New Year is coming.

Wont be covering as much as I did last year, all viewable under the "comiket" tag, as I'm celebrating New Year in Penang at the moment, enjoying Asam Laksa with lots of Char Kuey Teow (and the netspeed here is unstable). Nonetheless, a summary of the event is the least I could do.

This might be my only post on CM81 as I'll be out most of the time visiting Penang, so see you guys in 2012!
Merry (Late) Christmas and a Happy New Year!

AFA 2011 Report [Day 2: The Masses Amassed]

AFA 2011 Report [Day 1: MikuPa in Singapore]

by 17:40
It's been almost a full month since the Anime Festival Asia 2011 took place in Suntec City Convention and Exhibition Halls, Singapore yet here I am, still having that fanboy festival fever. As my first and probably last visit to AFA, it was THE single greatest festival/convention I could have hoped to experience in my life (at this point). For the next few days, I'll be actively posting my reports after the break with a photo-by-photo chronicle of my trip to Singapore, so read on if you'd like to know my part of the adventure.

5 Days Left...

by 11:51
Been really inactive lately, as I've been busy preparing my body as an offering for my pilgrimage this Friday to Singapore.

As you can see, I'll be attending this year's AFA2011 on all 3 days (well, 2 days, 1 night actually). Should be good as AFA committee has rounded up a bunch of amazing artistes as always each year. Might be my first and very last time to attend AFA as other plans in the future will hinder me from attending next year, so it a definite must-go at this point, besides the Friday concert.

Will be flying early, and arriving on Friday itself. A friend has decided to accompany me, and we should be meeting sumore like-minded individuals and comrades in Singapore. Should be a blast before leaving on Sunday night.

See you guys there!

Fate/Zero Ita-bus at Machi ★ Asobi

by 23:39
Awaiting to ferry people all over Tokushima is the one of a kind Fate/Zero ita-bus.

This ita-bus was made for the currently on-going event "Machi ★ Asobi" by anime production studio, ufotable, whom is also the studio behind the Fate prequel. The bus is fully covered with masters and their servants, along with a deformed version of the cast in a festival-themed background. Some of the interior are similar to the Fate/Zero tapestries draped at the Tokushima airport in my previous coverage of that.

This photo coverage includes the exterior, interior and the process of making the ita-bus.
Enjoy them, after the break.

Fate/Zero Episode 1 Sneak Peek

Fate/Zero Tokushima Awa Odori Festival Tapestires

by 23:01
Spotted at Tokushima airport, these beautiful tapestries were draped to welcome visitors, while signalling the approaching and inevitable 4th Holy Grail War, due to begin this October 2011.

While we're on topic, I'd like to elaborate a little on the following characters in Fate/Zero, specifically on the Servants. As a history faggot, I find the concept of incorporating "Heroes of the Past" into celestial summoning to battle amongst themselves for dominance of the sacred Sangreal (Holy Grail) the epitome of my wildest fantasies realized in animation form.

Thus, its only just if I "spoil" a few details about the Servants, and their "True Name", the hero associated to their respective class. Of course, you could read this all up in the Type Moon Wikia thats available for all to view and edit, but my hands are itchy to write a condensed version (and I'm procastinating from my assignment deadline), so why not.
