Katie and I attended Anime STL today. It’s been a while since we’ve been to a con, the last one being 2011’s Anime STL. Before that, we’d been traveling down to Texas for A-kon and Oni-con for years, so we’ve been a bit out of the con loop.
We cosplayed this year! I went as Trafalgar Law (sans facial hair) and she was Boa Hancock, both from One Piece.
The main thing we were looking forward to was the One Piece panel. We’d gone to it before in ’11 and we enjoyed it, same for the one this year as well! The guy that runs it does a really great job with it and makes it a lot of fun.
I didn’t get a lot of pictures while we were there and I think I posed for more than I took, haha.
Con-wise, I think we might go to Arch Anime in June and we’ll most likely go as Law and Hancock again. Maybe next year we can go to one out of state, preferably one that more of our friends are attending, especially Shintomo! We want to cosplay together!
I stayed home from work yesterday because I wasn’t feeling well and, of course, I had my cat-nurse on me all day. He’s not good at bringing me food or water, but he is really good at keeping me asleep.
When I wasn’t sleeping, I tried catching up on One Piece since Crunchyroll seemed to be working a little better than it has been. I managed to make it through 20 episodes..only 482 left to catch up! (orz)
Two more days! Then I can whine about having to wait a week between episodes..haha.
It’s finally starting to feel like spring around here. It seems like it’s going to be a rainy month, but I’d rather have rain than snow and ice. Also, I’m looking forward to seeing the sakura trees around here in bloom again. Once they are, expect to see many pictures of them!
I hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas. Mine was nice and I had a great time with my friends later in the night.
BBCA had Doctor Who running all day, so that’s pretty much what we watched. We watched the new Christmas special as well and that was so-so. I actually fell asleep near the beginning (I blame it on three glasses of rum and ginger ale), so I can’t really give a proper review on it. I woke up in time for the last five minutes of it and that was a bit confusing and I decided that I didn’t really need to see all of it. This season had been full of not so great writing and the Christmas special didn’t seem any different. I’m also not that sad to see Matt Smith go. Yes, he was a good Doctor, but not the best ever. Honestly, I don’t have a favorite and think that they’re all too great in their own ways to call just one the best over all.
Also, after this poorly scripted season, I do hope they refresh their writing because I think Peter Capaldi’s Doctor will be great as long as they give him a decent script and not waste his talent.
Anyway, enough about all of that. Later on in the evening a friend of ours came over and we ended up watching episodes 1-3 of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure (the recent TV anime) and that was highly amusing. I wouldn’t recommend it for everyone because it’s not really for everyone, but if you love nonsense and enjoy great action animation, then this might be for you. And, of course, one of my favorite voice actors, Koyasu Takehito, voices the villain. I do love his villains. He’s just perfect at them, even better if they’re flamboyant, it just fits him. Watching that made me excited for the upcoming Stardust Crusaders which will be out sometime next year.
And that was pretty much my Christmas. Here, have a Phantom with one of his new toys.
A few weeks ago I bought Colors!3D for my 3DS. So far I really like it a lot! It’s much more fun drawing in it than drawing Swapnote like I was.
First drawing was a chibi Freeza (Dragonball Z), haha.
Looking forward to this.
I’ve been reading the manga and I like it a lot, so I’m hoping the anime will be good too.
I’m too tired to write what it’s about, so I’ll direct you here if you’re interested.
And with that, good night!
