あなたのハートににこにこにー♪

It’s July the 22nd, a day significant to the Love Livers as it is the birthday of Yazawa Niko, the buchou of Idol Research Club as well as a part of μ’s, a School Idol Unit.

Despite being one of the oldest of the unit, she looks the youngest amongst the 9-girl-ensemble and proud of it. XDc

提督の Heart を掴むのは、私デース!

The popularity of Kantai Collection, or more commonly referred to its shortened term Kancolle, is going stronger and stronger.

Announcements and releases are flooding the world of figure collection as well as never-ending supplies of merchandise (Unlike the flow of Bauxite XDc)

After the overwhelming demand of Nendo/Figma Shimakaze a few months back, it’s no surprise that many more will come courtesy of GSC, including Nendo/Figma Akagi as well as this gem… :3c

A Collection of Kantai Musume

Last year the world was caught in the blast of a new form of moe (Considering by many as the new Touhou Project…) that is the fleet management browser game called Kantai Collection, or Kancolle for short. =w=

Spanning across all types of mediums and forms, the various bishoujo rendition of World War era battleships charmed the likes of the otaku scene, driving its popularity to the max especially in recent Moons.

Merchandise of these lovely Kanmusu, most of them voiced by high-profile seiyuu veterans no less, are popping out like mushrooms ever since.

The recent announcements of a Kancolle anime which will be directed by the same person who did the Nanoha series, as well as a PlayStation Vita version of the game, certainly further accelerates its new-found fame, much to the delight of all Admirals (Or Teitoku aka T, affectionately referred to one another by the players of the game itself…).

Masquerade: Invasion of Cosplay Fiesta

It’s finally the time for what you’ve been waiting for: piccies of lovely and sexy cosplays I acquired from during my roaming hours in Comic Fiesta.

Have a relaxing Rilakkuma relaxing at the side of the hall and the lovely kitsunemimi Coffy, the mascot of Comic Fiesta, as an entrée for the post. XDc

CF13_Cosplay_01CF13_Cosplay_02

Many comrades have referred to CF as Cosplay Fiesta nowadays due to it being more cosplayers than comics at all.

I must say I do agree with the sentiment: most doujin stuff I saw are of merchandise and artwork variety instead of manga/booklet. That and the halls are practically fully packed with cosplayers. =w=

Jointed Children: Attack on Daughters

Continuing from earlier post on my experience in Comic Fiesta 2013, this time let’s have a brief view on the wonderful girls and boys of the doll variety.

There are a number of them turning up during the event, many tagged along with their visiting parents.

Of course Tama-chan paid a visit to the halls too, although only for Day 01.

She stayed back to guard our hotel room for the next day due to severe fatigue.

Event Days: Miniaturisation of a Comic Market

いよいよイベントの時間ですね.

Rose from slumber very early in the morning and taking a ride in our chartered bus, me and the rest of my trip mates were transported to our destination, effectively eliminating the disastrous experience I had the day before.

CF13_Exhibits_01

Even though there’s still some time away from the opening, there were already a gathering of human hordes in and around the building. www 

I’ve managed to sneak into the halls before the actual opening hours. This is the only time my lens isn’t hindered by the crowds so I can take the time to line up my shots to a degree. :3c

Acquisitions of AFA13

You don’t expect me to go on for an Anime Festival Asia 2013 trip without any loot of my own, do you? w

Unlike earlier years, most of my acquisition this time around are mostly apparel and merchandise, along with a single tiny figure. :P 

AFA13_Loots_01

Got three T-Shirts in order to expand my library of anime related wardrobe, incidentally all of them are white in base. w

Two of them are from the doujin circle Tomodachi T-Shirts (As per the name of their circle, specialised in anime T-Shirts) while another one is from Culture Japan Booth. w

One of the featured anime in the event is Love Live! School Idol Project, an anime similar to Idolm@ster.

For the uninitiated, the premise of the series is about nine girls trying to prevent the closure of their beloved school by becoming an amateur idol group amongst many competing rival groups, striving to promote their own school, in order to increase the student applications to the said school. w

The Halls of AFA13

Last weekend, I’ve made a trip towards Suntec Convention Centre to pay a visit to the annual Anime Festival Asia 2013!

AFA13_Halls_01

It’s only been a year since my last visit to the place, but it seems that the usual route (From the City Hall MRT station to Suntec) has taken a new identity, underwent renovations while I am stuck on my island for the year.

Managed to briefly lost myself in the shopping mall labyrinths, good thing I’ve already researched the route the day before.

Oh well off to AFA we go!

Thanks to the machination cooperation between Danny-san and Penang Global Tourism, many comrades and I from all over the surrounding region and even from overseas were fully enjoying ourselves in the wake of like-minded individuals and one another. 

CJC13_Attractions_01

As what I always did during any past ACG events I’ve attended, I’ve paid the 6th floor of SQCC a visit the night before the actual opening day, the site where Culture Japan was held, as an early reconnaissance along with inspection to find out how I will approach the site.

Not to mention since I’m to display my Servant at one of them booths, I need to make sure the amount of items I needed to bring beforehand. :3c

Pole Position

Hatsune Miku has enjoyed much popularity over the years ever since her début as a virtual idol, taking up many positions such as being an official  race queen for Good Smile Racing for the past few years.

While GSR has offered the public a chance to sponsor their favourite virtual idol in the GT races, it was only available to the Japanese for the past yesteryear.

Sponsors are usually given an assortment of limited Racing Miku merchandise for the year, especially the much sought after Figma and Nendoroid versions of the Racing Miku besides the usual straps, stickers, personal sponsorship cards and other stuffs…

Spotted at Good Smile Company’s booth during AFAMY12, Racing Miku version 2012’s elegant futuristic design caught my eyes, grabbing my heart with her almost impish grin… And I told myself this: I definitely must get a Figma version of her!
