Japan Trip 2014 – Comiket 86 Day 3

See this post for the introduction. See this post for background info on Comiket 86 After a relaxing day of cosplay photography came the main event of the trip: Comiket 86 Day 3: doujinshis, doujinshis, doujinshis! King of comic conventions, do you have enough doujinshis in stock? Unlike in day 1 and 2 where we only got a small glimpse of the fight, day 3 was going to be a battlefield. A true test of strategy and preparation. The real deal. Prior to the trip, we (well, mostly me) had spent countless hours at night drawing up the battle plan …

Japan Trip 2014 – Comiket 86 Day 2

See this post for the introduction. See this post for background info on Comiket 86 After the exhausting first day of Comiket 86 came C86 Day 2: the day of cosplay photography. Hnnnnngggggggggggg! *dies from heart attack* It was also cloudier that morning, so the initial outside waiting for doors to open was much more tolerable than the previous day. Day 2 of Comiket consists mostly of female-oriented BL circles and Touhou circles, so we managed to finish our shopping really early and spend some time wandering around or photographing cosplayers (which was mainly what I ended up doing). Which …

Japan Trip 2014 – Nipponbashi + Dotonbori

See this post for the introduction. While going through photos in Lightroom for my recent Sakura-Con 2015 photo blog post, I realized that I actually never finished uploading and writing the rest of my Japan Trip 2014 blog posts… Oops… So here they are, with whatever commentary I can still remember… Better late than never I guess! On the same day we visited the Art of Gundam exhibition, we explored Nipponbashi and Dotonbori. I had visited both places multiple times in the past, so I didn’t end up taking all that many pictures this time around. We meet again, Giant …

Sakura-Con 2015

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here (I blame ArcheAge), but last, last week was Sakura-Con 2015. Sakura-con is the largest anime convention in the north west, with over 20,000 attendees and held at the Washington State Convention Center (Seattle, Washington) between April 3-5th. I went last yearand took tons of cosplay photos as an attendee, but this year, I decided to attend not only as volunteer staff, but also as a panelist! Since I spent most of my time helping out in the console gaming room (I was part of tournament gaming staff), I was only able …

I was hoping for an interesting fight but it ended up being a boring spawn camp lasting less than 10 minutes :( Hope there’ll be no siege-blocking next week so I can make a more interesting siege video. The song clip in the intro is “Bullet for Prisoner” by …

I got bored of 5v5s and only recently decided to start doing 1v1 arenas again so my skills are still quite a bit rusty. You’ll notice me missing the Shadowsmite backstab a few times and a few other dumb mistakes, but being in tank gear really helps with that leeway. Now that I’m finally done with Serpentis and have 10-man Dahuta on farm, those on Kyrios …
