November 30, 2014. This marks my 5 year here at Anime Vice. I remember that I was still not used to forums back then until I got used to this place. I was only a wiki user until a few topics decided to pique my interest and I've been used to some other fourms alongside this one ever since. This one ended up being one of my most frequent due to the community growing on me and it was also one of the wiki sections that I actually managed to frequent along with a few others that I can remember. I did a lot of stuff to help with the site as well alongside some other users. I thank you all for being one of the main reasons to have me reach this far.
Some users that I remember to thank as well. I couldn't state my full reasons for some of you due to this taking part of the time for doing homework, but I still thank you guys nonetheless:
Here's to many more years of hanging out together!
Hello followers! An Absolute Destiny Whatever episode is pending next week after my classes are over with. However, I will be unable to attend Anime Weekend Atlanta due to a huge financial slump me and my parents got in about a month ago. It sucks all kinds since I planned to meet an fellow Anime Vice member outside the site, but it wasn't possible with the slump since I normally prepare in advance.
Wooser's Hand-to-Mouth Life project is still on! I will resume full work on it starting Thursday. A side project will arrive soon as well and it involves one of the shows that look "embarrassing" to others, but never embarrassed me in the case of it being one of my favorite anime series. That show is Princess Tutu.
I'm also preparing for the Monster Girl Tournament. Chances are, I will have a partner on this since it's literally my first time working on this type of voting format. It will also break the tie that the site had last year between two species.
That's pretty much it on this update. Thanks for reading!
Welcome, again to my blog! I recently attended MomoCon 2014 and man, it was fun! Although, I went aggro and visited a lot of places and didn't even have lunch until much later and even met a few friends along the way. The stay in the Dealer's Room was quite long and while I was in the con, my family also had fun and even took a pic of someone as a Minecraft character. Surprisingly, I also ran into a card area and got a few cards and sleeves as well. The stuff that I obtained from there including gifts was...
And here are two of the most notable gifts:
WAY more stuff than I had at my past cons! I hope I don't ever get reckless when I go to a con for the full 3 to 4 days.
I used a new phone that I had this time and took all kinds of photos! This time, I met up with some Power Rangers, ran into some Kill La Kill cosplayers, found some people from Frozen, discovered a few Madoka characters and somehow screwed up and met Yuno and a SWAT team. Yeah, it was awesome. I feel much stronger because of this and it's not just from the nearly endless walk and the complements I got from my Vocoloid shirt. (That long register line in the beginning of it, though!) XD
Thanks for reading, everyone! It's been too long since I had such fun, especially since my last blog, but I hope to have more times like this in my life. See you guys later!
Well, welcome to the first ADW of 2014 and this means and during all that time the blog wasn't updated, I had some heavy IRL stuff in the mix of raising my GPA, but I prevailed and everything was solved and it even had me closer to my family. (In short, fuck 2013. Right in that ass.) Now, let's get everything back up to speed for this year!
The previous season was bananas for what I ended up enjoying, but because school was getting real, I only managed to check out Lady Jewelpet, Chiaka, The Coffin Princess and Mekaku City Actors and out of these, Mekaku City Actors claimed my heart from Episode 1, was a bit iffy about Chiaka after 1 episode, and Jewelpet was a cheesefest, but it was fun. I got yet to check out some others, however and hope to do so soon after things wind down.
I went to two malls in separate days: The first was in the Great Mall of Georgia and the second was in North Pointe Mall. While North Point did have some charm and had a store where I found a plushie of Sylveon, I ended up having much more fun at the Great Mall for the areas we explored. I really want to look at the GMG when the Christmas decorations are about.
It actually feels like a corrupt system in my school despite my strong drive to reach for graduation. Recently, I had to switch a class to a refresher course (but I was refunded for that class, which was rare for a college) and found out that my academic advisor registered me one stage too early for the course. Well, better than getting auto-failed by someone who was nice most of the time (that's if I had declined the advisor's plan). There are also too many corrupt teachers, especially the few teachers who I had the most trouble with for one class until a much better teacher showed up and managed to get me out of these courses with great grades. One of them was so bad, it took me years until last quarter to pass it and the other times were from the one teacher who turns her students into academic cattle if they make just one false move. If it weren't for good teachers about and the people I met that turned out to be friends later on, my drive would be much less stronger than it is today.
During the time that I was off, I participated in two tournaments. One was a draft for Vanguard, the other was a full tournament of the same game. In the previous draft, I only had two holo cards. One was pulled and the other was given to me on accident during the rotation (I kept it) I ended up being very close to first place until I decked out due to taking one damage point further than him. I got back at him when he asked if the one card I actually pulled (Ethics Buster Extreme) was open by replying that it was already traded. The look of his face was priceless. The full tournament was nearly as more troublesome as the draft, but I managed to reach into the top 8 with my deck (PR<3ISM Bermudas). Both actually ended up being fun despite the last battle where me and my opponent was gradelocked (Stuck at Grade 2 or lower).
Thanks for reading this rather long blog of mine. I hope to bring more of my misadventures to you guys soon. :)
To end up having to share this when another convention is nearing is quite shameful, but school was kicking my ass to no end during the time. I'll share with you what I remember of AWA 2013. I managed to get a DVD boxset of Princess Tutu that was about and I also had a poster of Chi (Chobits). I can't remember what else I bought, however. What I clearly remember, however...
Many, many cosplay photos were taken, including someone dressed as Charlotte, the meet-up with someone who ended up on TV a couple of times (I also end up in a pic with her!), found someone in a rediculous Marshall Lee getup, end up meeting Chi and Fraeya, found Mitsuru loafing around and met up with a good ninja friend of mine.
Sorry that this is so short, but to compensate with it, my next adventure is the first of 2014 and it should already be up after this blog. Until next time, see you!
