Looking around the wiki, I noticed that the Someday's Dreamers series doesn't seem have much content, so I'm planing to add characters for the series as well as to repair the page for its anime, but I'll have to go for the manga series first because I'm more familiar with it (as well as adding it's spin-off) and then moving on to the anime version. There's also a page repair mini-project for Princess Tutu since I plan to do a major project for it on Screened (The series even has a Hulu page, so that should help ;p ). Now, let's get to another subject since we're present into this blog...

There's a Main Image problem going on around here.

I noticed that there are a lot of main images for shows have either a random episode card or a screencap of the last episode. I think that's a problem because not only that I think it might violate a site rule or two, but it could also give out some major spoilers (which is very bad for some that might be starting out on the target series). In my opinion, I would rather stick with using the title card or an official poster image used to promote the series. Now that it's out of my chest, I want to hear what some of the community thinks about this matter. Thanks for your time, everyone.

Earlier this month, I decided to have my family attend AWA with me, which is the first anime convention I went to since NakaKon at Kansas City. For those wondering, Anime Weekend Atlanta is a 3-day event that starts every end of September to early October.

So, what happened back there?

I ran into many, many cosplayers throughout the trek to a Sports Bar for lunch (My dad's burger cravings took a toll on him, which was why that stop happened. The food was delicious anyways!). After lunch, we traveled around until we reached some of the food stands as well as the con's giant shopping area. My folks allowed me to look around for a period of time. Good thing I was alone too, because I ran into the Hentai section after about 5 minutes into shopping. No further detail on that except that I didn't get anything from there, otherwise things would've been screwed up between my family for obvious reasons. The same thing went with the live-action horror films that I ran into a minute after the Hentai section. (I made the grave mistake of seeing the Japanese version of the first “Ring” with my folks, and I've seen more of these films that didn't manage to give me nightmares. Well, except for Ichi The Killer. That one did.) The area was as swamped as the hallway with fellow shoppers, panelists and cosplayers.

Here's what I also saw...

  • A Pokemon-themed panel complete with a Pikachu Car.

  • An Q&A Panel

  • Another Hentai Panel (That time, it was just video games and manga)

  • A J-Pop booth and a K-Pop booth

Items Obtained

While running into those things, I did manage to score myself some merchandise, and some of it was discounted (Just my wonderful luck! <3 ) I bought a wall scroll of Trapnest (One of the rock bands revealed in the “Nana” series), a silver Kingdom Key necklace (Sora's Keyblade as a pedant), an T-Shirt and the first box set of the remastered re-release of Revolutionary Girl Utena (Saw it from my on demand service five years ago and loved it).

The Cosplay

Sorry about the quality since some were on my phone and others were on my DSi since my phone ran out of battery juice. Anyway, I got stopped by a cop, barely escaped Panty and Stocking's grasp, found a catgirl at one of the food stands and almost got bit by a vampire couple but survived it all. Pics says it did happen.

Overall

After nearly causing my head to explode out of all the awesomeness that happened, I went out when it was time and left with all my merch and some food from the stands with a smile. Definitely would like to visit it again! <3

For about a couple of months now, I've been on a rampage against wiki pages that were unformatted and had spoiler tags on here and fixing them. During the time when I was still new to this place, I have added some anime characters to the database that I plan to fill in very soon, but that's a secret project that will be revealed later. I'm also open for any other projects that any of you wiki editors on this site already have, so PM me here if you need me. ;)
 

Meanwhile on Screened...

I also did some more anime-related things on Screened and would like to share them with you. While I was still working on the characters for Sailor Moon and some other shows I was checking out, I halted the project temporarily in order to create the Gunslinger Girl mini-project on Screened in honor of the "Assassins" theme week. So far I added the show and the main characters. I also plan to start off another new anime-related project as well as a project involving other types of cartoons on that site right after I'm done with all of the Sailor Moon characters. 
 
That's it for what I have in store for both sites, but you can also PM me over there in case you want to help me with those things!

The more annoying posting bug's been fixed, so I can now finally release this blog. My schedule used to be too tied up to even watch anything at all up until most recently, but now, I have managed to tackle down some of what was on my radar for a while (some of them were on it for a short time, mind you). Here are a few mini-reviews that I did on them... (I won't be adding any images because I'm sure that darned image bug is still present D: )Also, please critique me on the stuff I posted so far.


Blood-C

After seeing Episode 1

Positives

The plot was at an interesting point after Saya Kishiwagi leaves from school, and I got some of the same feeling I had with the first episode of Blood+ from the moment when I saw the first battle against a monster with a harder shell (very sure that it's a chiropteran, though). This had me intrigued about what would happen in the next episode. I also like her new look as well as the art in the series.

Negatives

The first half felt like a generic school-life plot and I have mixed emotions with Saya K.'s personality in comparison to the past versions of Saya. In this version, she's displayed as a sweetheart whom helps about anything around her and also happens to be a pettanko.

Result: 3/5

Still intrigued about what would happen with the story next.


Usagi Drop

Reaction After seeing Episode 1

 This is about a man whom decided to raise the love child of his grandfather despite his minimal experience as a parent.
The episode moved me emotionally and the characters, plot and art style were all spot on as it went from a dark time to a light-hearted moment in the ending.
 
Result: 5/5
Episode 2's already released, so I better get in gear whenever I have the time again! 
 

 
I will update this ultimately soon and will add more mini-reviews for the things I checked out, so keep looking out for any updates! (Or just wait until I give you all an update notice on Twitter as @MasterMenos. My anime binges are frequent on certain days of the week, FYI. )
 
Next Up: [C] and Tiger and Bunny!

I ran into an old QOTD topic that used to work on this site days ago and thought that I might as well answer it. I happen to love Healthy Girls a lot more than D.F.C.'s (Delicious Flat Chests). In fact, I actually cringed the first time I heard of what D.F.C. means (Laughed it off afterwards). I'm normally not bothered by women's breast sizes in anime (which means small B-Cup boobs don't bother me either), but I also get bothered if they're WAY too big.
Those are perfectly fine, but.....
THESE have gone too damn far! (no offense if any of you love this, though.)
