MCM London Comicon 2015

MCM Comicon London Spring 2015 (1)

Hey guys how are you all? Today I wanted to share with you guys all of the really awesome pictures that I got from MCM Comicon in London. I only had time to pop into London for a day since the convention is smack dab in the middle of my exam season but I had tons of fun talking with cosplayers, artists and con-goers all day. MCM in London takes place at the Excel Centre, an absolutely gigantic venue and rightly so because there were tons of panels and special guests featured for the weekend. I ended up at the Bandai Namco panel and Agents of Shield panel before the cosplay show. I actually found the Fall convention in London more exciting than the spring one because there seemed to be more anime cosplayers in the Fall however I ended up stumbling into a HUGE Disney photo shoot which was a real treat for me as a fan.

In order to travel light I brought along my Nikon 1 J3 with the 10-30mm lens great for casual photography and vlogging of course. My camera actually used up both batteries before the end of the day so I didn’t get as many photos during the cosplay showcase as I would have liked however I did grab a ton of video footage throughout the entire Saturday. The vlog will be uploaded soon and of course a Haul video is also in the works. I hope you guys enjoy these photos and don’t forget to check out MCM Comicon’s official site to see where their other conventions will be taking place in the UK.

Hey guys, how are you all? Today I wanted to share with you guys some really fun and casual cosplay photos I took at MCM London Comicon. This was my very first convention in the UK and I only went on the Saturday of the three-day con weekend however it was probably the biggest convention I’ve been to thus far… Although the panels were more of a minor aspect of the convention itself, it had a phenomenal Dealer’s Room, Artist Alley and sponsor’s stands presenting tons of great merchandise, fanart, crafts, and promotional activities for new games.

The MCM London Comicon VLOG will also be coming soon as well as the HAUL video on my channel =D

I also got to hear Shinichiro Watanabe speak LIVE. AHHHHH!!!! He talked a lot about his latest creations this year – Space Dandy and Zankyou no Terror, two series different in every way. It was really insightful to hear him talk about the contrasting elements of each show from its animation to its music and Watanabe-san’s own connections with each series and plot. A fan asked Watanabe-san what motivated him to create a story using terror as a theme and Watanabe-san answered by saying that he didn’t start out with the desire to explore the theme of terror. Rather, he started out with the characters, a group of troubled teenagers against society and it just so happened that the medium of the story through which these characters were explored was terrorism. Was it realistic? Yes and no. Watanabe-san said he intended it to be both realistic and also sort of fantasy-like and he decided on a somewhat open-ended conclusion to the series because he really meant for his viewers to offer their own interpretations of the story, its emotions, characters and themes. It really was such an honour to hear him speak about his works.

Since Saturday is always the biggest day of the convention there were TONS of cosplayers. I really enjoyed the convention as a fan so these pictures are really casual and unprofessional in every way. I took them with a Nikon 1 camera and really just snapped shots of what I liked and a lot of times I ended up zooming in to crop the feet out just cause I was so intrigued by the actual cosplay piece itself. I hope you guys enjoyed these photos nonetheless.

My favourite pics are definitely the ones I got of Love Live’s μ’s (Muse) idols. (∩˃o˂∩)♡ Not gonna lie, I really tried to find all of them…

FanExpo Canada 2014 Artist Alley Haul

Hey guys, here’s are all the artwork and fan art that I got from FanExpo Canada this year. I went much lighter in the Artist Alley shopping because there are less anime fan art-artists than at Anime North. Nevertheless, I got to visit some of my favourite artists and meet some great new ones =) No Dealer’s Room Haul feature this year because I really didn’t get a wide variety of merchandise. However if you’re looking to check out all the manga I got last weekend, click the link here.

Cloudy Says_2

Hey guys how are you all?

Today we’re back with another update. There’s been a crazy storm of new anime in the last two weeks because of all the new seasonal stuff coming out.

I haven’t exactly decided what I’m going to stick with this season and there’s so much I’m having trouble deciding. As per usual, here is a poll of the selections. Everything in the poll is everything I’ve watched (not necessarily posted first impressions). If you guys want me to check out a particular show or make sure I review one of your favourites, hit as many selections as you like and vote because I have changed my list of seasonal shows due to popular demand or lack thereof.

What I’m currently watching this season…

*Finishing from last season – Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei

Coming soon with CuriousCloudy…

I will be going to ConBravo 2014 this year. Just on the Saturday though. Hopefully I can get some vlogging in and meet some other fun Youtubers. I’m also planning on going to FanExpo Canada 2014 in late August and covering the convention for all four days.

We haven’t done a HAUL in a while but one will be coming soon at the end of the month! As well, with my birthday coming up in August, hopefully I can do another Out of the Box feature with a NEW NENDOROID on its way here. If I have time I want to plan some seiyuu feature posts.

Random Things I’ve been up to…

– Reading Shadow’s Claim by Kresley Cole

– Reading the Latin version of the Hobbit

– Getting really addicted to sour gummy candies

–  I recently finished a Korean drama called The Heirs. Starting to watch Emergency Couple now.

Thank you guys so much for all your support and lovely comments on my channel thus far! I’m gonna keep doing my best with video editing and improve my vlogs so I hope you’ll enjoy everything coming soon!
