Anime Mid-Atlantic On The Horizon

So, with ANext over that’s 2/3 cons down in this con rush leaving just Anime Mid-Atlantic (AMA).

Below are my panels:

& my cosplay line up:

Characters (left to right then top to bottom): Sakura Matou (FSN [derped & got a pic of her in her outfit from the HF movie but fcuk it]), Jonathan Joe☆ (JJBA), Iori Yagami (KoF), Relius Clover (BlazBlue), & Auron (FFX)

Already in a mad dash to.finish packing by tonight & doing whatever minor panel work I need to do before I leave Thursday.

Anyway, let the prep for the final con of the unholy trio continue~ 🙃

Panels GET~

Got panels for both AMA & (surprise surprise) Otakon this year~~

Seriously, even though I personally don’t think ppl should treat Otakon as “ITS A BIG FREAKIN’ DEAL!” when it comes to paneling, this is the first year that breaks the ‘every other year’streak I’ve had of only getting a panel accepted every other year, with 2013 being the first year I got anything accepted. Regardless, it’s an interesting one to go with of all the things I submitted but I’ll take it nonetheless.

Anyway, I got Final Fantasy: Love it or Hate it, They Still Have All Your $$$, & actually have another waitlisted: Sit Down, STFU, & Play This JRPG (Deluxe Edition). No idea the likelihood of it being accepted, but that’s something to note.

As for Anime Mid-Atlantic (AMA), I originally got 5 panels accepted but due to wanting better times for 2, I currently have 3 confirmed with 2 trying to still be fit into the schedule somewhere. Anyway, they are:

  • Bleach: The Final Farewell – Friday, 4pm, Panel 4
  • Yurei, Yokai, & School Girls – Saturday 8pm, Panel 2
  • Pass the Haterade!: Most Hated Characters in Anime – Sunday, 12:30am, Panel 4 (18+)

Hyped about the Pass the Haterade one in particular, but generally glad to have anything. I’m especially happy I didn’t miss the panel submission deadline this year like the previous one >_>;

Anyway, just had those quick updates & post as things come up ^.^

Zenkaikon 2018 Panel

Here’s my 1 & only Zenkai panel. Tbh, I personally don’t care about cons that stiff me on panels when I go to cons triple the size & get multiple, but that’s another story for another day. Regardless, I’ll be here, running this sexiness, & mixing & mingling with everyone.

Real talk: Momocon is gonna be what replaces Zenkai for this period of the year/never doing Zenkai again, & it may be my new permanent stopl depending on how everything goes. Anyway, couldn’t do Momo this year but next year I’m gonna be all about that life 😅

Blog Updates…Finally…

So, since I found I can access WordPress at the office, will be going through & updating a lot over the next few weeks.

However, if you attended any of my panels in the last year & need info covered in a panel not uploaded yet, please don’t hesitate to contact me using my contact form.  I’ll gladly send over whatever info you’re looking for so you’re not just waiting like, “Wtf, when’s this biznitch gonna update things DX.”

Anyway, it may take a while to pull together & upload all the resource documents but at the very least I’m going to shoot for uploading PDFs of all the presentations. So, thanks for being patient…1 person looking for info (^.^;) but updates are happening…slowly but surely.

AB 2018 Cosplays & Panels

Cosplay
Character names, starting from the top…
Fareed McGillis & Orga Itsuka (Iron-blooded Orphans), BB (Fate/Extra), MHX w/ both swords for her NP (FGO), Zapp Renfro (BBB), & Monkey (Juuni Taisen).

BB is really for the Fate shoot but since I’ll be going from 3rd floor of the con center to the 2nd floor hotel side right after a panel, no promises. All in all, not that much in terms to pack & not that many props, although I do plan on making a red light up sword for Zapp.

XMas Time 4 Anime Mini Review

Disclaimer: This was originally meant to be a FB status, hence all the weird abbreviations, but clearly this got too long for that so I turned it into a blog post that I’ll also link on FB.

 

OK, back from my friend’s house for Christmas time cosplay sweatshop/unlimited anime marathon works w/ 4 new shows under my belt: Blood Blockade Battlefront, Juuni Taisen, Gangsta, & Garo the Animation, so time for as short as possible mini reviews…

So, out of all these shows, the only 1 I can truly recommend w/o a lot of disclaimers is Garo the Animation.  Heck, the only (minor) thing I would mention beforehand is that it’s a ‘mature anime’ (not as in really gory or violent, just more adult themed things happening in general).  The other 3: may be way too busy & chaotic, sh*t ending, & non-ending respectively for why I can’t straight recommend it.

However, before I continue, let’s quickly talk about episodic shows.  They’re not everyone’s fancy, but being episodic in & of itself is not a critique or a negative of a show: that’s just a neutral fact.  It’s like saying something is overhyped & nothing more; that’s not actually saying anything (of worth). I personally don’t care too much for episodic shows, but that’s not a definite that applies to all series I have/plan to watch #AlwaysExceptions. Anyway, moving on…

  • Blood Blockade: I would say this is a really chaotic fun show w/ a lot going on in most episodes (at least a lot to keep up w/), & may be hard to keep up w/ or outright can be overwhelming to anyone who isn’t used to shows like this or prefer the calmer/less chaotic shows.  Also, although it tends to be episodic, the 1st season did have an original central plot that overall was good, but that ending was super meh.  Seemed kinda rushed honestly, but everything else was fine + the 2nd season went back to being purely episodic w/ a 2-parter here & there & was overall better imo.
  • Juuni Taisen: Now, as someone who loves gory/violent anime, it’s awesome; if we’re being for real for real: pretty g.d. lackluster.  Besides literally having a set-up where if a character seems to be getting a lot of screen time/inner monologue, they’re 100% guaranteed to be the next to die, there’s a lot wrong.  Some (half?) the fights, despite an entire episode of buildup (at least as far as XYZ character fighting…at all), could last seconds & be super anticlimactic; post mortem motherfcuking backstories that sometimes were half the g.d. episode; certain characters getting 0 backstory while others get way too much (f’ing twins, like, I like them but who honestly gaf???); Rabbit being broken & OP af to the point it was way more of a negative than a plus to the overall tournament (if they limited his abilities it could have worked…maybe); seemingly random af abilities that have nothing to do w/ their Zodiac animal + the whole Zodiac thing being absolutely unnecessary to the overall everything; who tf actually wins the tournament + what their b.s. wish was; Gah, the list is endless…but I still liked it.  I just can’t in good faith recommend this ~.~
  • Gangsta: Oh, Gangsta, the new age Big O where it got cut off far too soon.  Like, all they need is 1 45-minute movie & that could wrap up everything, but instead you’re left w/ a non-ending, several characters dying, missing, dead, & no f’ing clue where it’s headed DX That + it’s like an infinitely more coherent FFXV: Kingsglaive where I truly & deeply care about an overwhelming majority of the characters but the content just isn’t there.  Like, great (hawt af oyaji) characters; interesting premise; meh execution.  Also, this show has surprisingly more slice of life moments & far less action/violence than what you would think seeing characters like Nicholas & Worick, which is a g.d. shame X/  Worst thing is is it def didn’t do well enough to even merit being redone or picked up by another studio for that matter, so chances are slim anything is going to come out (in animated form) that would wrap up their story…what a f’ing shame -_-

So, tbh, fujoshi fav: Gangsta hands down.  All those hawt oyajis being awesome is *rejoices in fujoshi*.  Juuni Taisen is a close 2nd as well due to fujoshi feelz, however, the objectively better, more polished, more coherent, & all that jazz fav: Garo the Animation, which everyone should just watch, if nothing else, for the best hawt af oyaji Dad ^.^

 

Heck, if those costumes weren’t so extra af, I wouldn’t mind cosplaying Ema, German, or Alphonso from Garo…but that’s waaayyy too much suffering for my tastes >_>
