Type Moon & Zero Escape Shoots Confirmed for Ota ’16~!

Okay, so have the shoots approved & have recently created an event for both. I also submitted one for Magi, but another one was already approved so no need to rain on their parade ^.^

Anyway…

Interestingly enough, if you check the current list, there’s one for Fate Universe listed as well that’s not hosted by me.  However, recently got in contact w/ that bro coordinating the Fate Universe shoot. When they’re ready I’ll post a link to their event page/whatever, but that shoot will be taking place: Friday, 8/12 @ the indoor fountain area from 8:30-10p. So, please go to that as well ^.^

Hope to see you at either =^.^=
UPDATE (Otakon, 8/13/16): please post whatever pics you take to their respective event pages. Also, in the case of the Zero Escape shoot, their is a hash tag associated with it (#otakon2016ZE), so please also tag pics with this if you post elsewhere.

Anyway, thanks for coming out & hope you had a great con ^.^

Anime Boston, Cosplays, & Things to Come

Yay~! Found out about AB panels, they are:

  • Diamonds in the Rough: Videogame Edition (side order of J-RPGs)
  • Let’s Go to ‘The World’: A Panel About the .Hack Games
  • Bleach: Shunpou Edition
  • 9 Persons, 9 Virtues, 9 D’bags: The Zero Escape series
  • ALL THE VOCALOIDS!

OK, now time for FB statuses that pretty much sum up everything:

Originally I had my Dangan Ronpa panel accepted but I asked if they could swap that out for the Zero Escape one, & they graciously obliged me of my request…so now I’m beyond excited (& have made it top priority to beat VLR) for this panel. If you’re going to be there & are a fan of the series, please come to this panel! Now that this is on the roster, gotta dig out my Dio cosplay, fix up a few things, & troll the f**k out of ppl. when the time comes 😀 Now, .hack & Bleach did really well last year & I hope they will again, esp. Bleach (b/c there’s so much WTF?! happening now that I can only pray my audience is equally hype to talk about it), & Diamonds in the Rough has been going OK, but still needs fine-tuning, but at least this iteration mentions the fact it’s focusing on JRPGs, which are pretty much the only games I play.

Then there’s the Vocaloid one…I forgot how much time I asked for for this (new thing I need to start being anal retentive about when taking notes/record keeping), but clearly I’m only going to be scratching the surface seeing as how there are so G.D. many (@.@) Still, can’t wait to do this panel XD First Vocaloid one, so I’m super excited! Even better: I’ll be in my Pride!/Daughter of Evil Rin cosplay w/ all the frills & lace :3 Gonna be good times ^.^

Anime Boston honestly was one of my fav cons last year, & honestly a potential Otakon replacement, so I’m super looking forward to it this year, esp. w/ my cosplay line-up 😀 Also, this year’s/con’s going to be hilarious since every cosplay I have is for some photoshoot or another &/or panel, like w/ Grimmjow, Dio, & potentially Rin. If you’re going, hope to see you there =^.^=

Still have a lot wait-listed, the only thing I’m really waiting on is the yaoi/bara one, since I’m supposed to be doing that w/ someone, so I have my fingers crossed on that one.  I said it before, but you don’t understand how super hype I am for the Zero Escape panel, & I pray to every kami that it has a good turnout w/ other ppl. equally hype that there’s a place where they can talk about this lovely series XD

Besides that, lots of cosplay plans from various series that I’m hype to do. This is probably the most hype cosplay track I’ve had in a while in which case practically everything is for a photoshoot/panel like I mentioned earlier.

This is def going to be a year to remember @ AB & I can’t wait to have everything done for it ^.^

999 Post-game “Mini” Review

So, this past Saturday I *finally* beat 999 😀 Super excited since that means I can finally move on to VLR proper w/o a care in the world (since certain characters from that game are literally walking spoilers).

tl; dr version of why I did VLR before 999: originally didn’t care for it too much, didn’t have a DS/3DS (but had a Vita), spoiled most of the game via Wiki/TV Tropes namely b/c I didn’t think US had the game (it’s super Japanese & I never thought US would get/had it), & a few more reasons. Either way, beat the game before 999.

So, tl;dr*2 again; loved the f**k out of this game. Besides that:

+No matter how I look at it, Lotus is an unforgivable c**t most of the time. Like, in the end I still *mostly* like her but she b*tches far too much & is way too condescending at times.

+Sudoku?! Not surprised but f’ing really?! Super ambivalent about this b/c it’s both super appropriate & super f’ing annoying. Thank kami for sudoku solution generator type sites >.>

+Oh, Akane, you’re f’ing awesome (ditto for Santa). I only wish I waited to cosplay him b/c I def would cosplay him now.

+I hate the fact that most of the ‘options’ you have in dialog don’t really matter, it’s mostly about what doors you go through as far as routes are concerned. Granted, to get the true ending, any instance that would encourage certain characters to go on ad infinitum about something that “can’t possibly have anything to do w/ anything”, f’ing DO IT.

+The axe ending has got to be my fav bad ending. Only reason I don’t utterly despise Clover.

+Snake’s cool at first…then by the time the umpteenth snarky/smart@$$ comment kicks in it’s not f’ing cute anymore -_- Like, I know a *lot* love Snake, but I like Ace far more than I could ever like him >.>

+On that matter, w/ the exception of Seven, your character, & somewhat Ace, every character has far too many “jerk w/ the heart of an @$$hole” moments. Smart@$$ is “cute” in small doses, not every G.D. line out of your mouth. Funny thing, it gets WORSE in VLR, but is strangely both more & less tolerable, IDK

+Snake IS a total bad@$$…when he’s not being a snarky d*uche >.>

+Junpei has far too many “you f’ing idiot, THINK!” moments. There are so many times he asks questions about s**t he not 2 minutes ago just commented on X/

+F**k digital roots & base-ANYTHING X/

Finally, even though I’m super happy this means I can move on to VLR, the puzzles are far harder than 999 (at least to me). Like, if I spend enough time trying different combinations & going over clues I most likely will eventually figure it out, whereas VLR puts me in situations I’m just like “…I DON’T F’ING KNOW DX” & I wind up having to play w/ my phone out ~.~ (since I refuse to do less than hard mode).

Oh well, more VLR means more d*uche baggery & Liam O’Brien XD

That was my super “short” rundown of the game I posted on my personal FB page, some other things I would add on are that I loved the ending sequence of the true ending. The song that was playing was great, flipping the interface of the puzzle (you’ll understand when you get there/beaten the game) I thought was a fantastic idea to show that “perfect connection” 2 of the characters had, & the raw emotion was f’ing moving. I genuinely enjoyed every minute of it. Also, the last stinger involving Seven & that mysterious woman, f’ing fantastic.

All in all great game, & I’m glad I played it to completion. Now, onwards! To VLR & may God (Dio [?]) help us all ~.~’
