For the first two weeks of August, I went off to Taiwan~. Been back from the trip for around a week (busy busy trying to settle in with work and catch up with stuff). It's been 17 years since I've traveled there. Boy, do I remember very little of Taiwan. Some things haven't changed though, while some stuff has changed a lot. But what's different about this trip is that I had places and events I wanted to cram in, with a shorter stay than any of my previous trips to Taiwan, so it was a trip with a super full itinerary. Went out bright and early every day and didn't get home until around 11 pm every night. Walked my feet off. XD There was no rest at all. I became very familiar with the public transit. I also got to see my relatives who I haven't seen in just as long as I haven't been back to Taiwan. 17 years!! (I was so tiny back then.)

Stuff I bought from Anime Expo!

Day 1, I spent a good chunk of my time lining up for Yamamato Sayo and Kubo Mitsurou's autograph, while Days 2-3 were spent on trying to attend panels (and often failing). Day 4 was my shopping day! I wrote up some notes on the panels that I did get to attend, so I'll at least be posting about those.

Got myself another Arslan Senki poster. o/ My favorite one is the one shown on the box though. Haven't come across that one yet. Arslan looks gentler there~.

Fanime is here~. Badge pick up was beautiful. Walked in and walked out. It was so quick that I didn't even get a good look at what the registration area looked like. There were several scanning stations for us to scan our QR codes, and then our badges were printed out to the side. Done. I hope it's like this next year too!

I swung by Swap Meet after that and found bought stuff~. Never thought I'd see the Hikaru no Go PS Heian game. I watched a play through of that many years ago. It's an amusing game. XD Also got myself clearfiles of Kimi to Boku (I'm loving the one with the twins and Kaname all with glasses) and Seiyuu Ka, a poster of Sai from Naruto, a Gyakuten Saiban fanbook with CD, and a Gyakuten Saiban postcard book. Never thought I'd see something of Seiyuu Ka around.

Heh, I checked my post about last year's Fanime, and I said I was bored out of my mind last year! Mostly because I didn't have any new cosplays or gatherings to go to. I was much less bored this year since I did have a new cosplay.

Lots of Akatsuki no Yona and Ace of Diamond pics.

Day 1 )

Day 2 )

Day 3 )

Anime I just recently finished watching. (Winter or not)

I actually watched quite a few series this season, and the majority of them all aired on Saturday, haha...

Not spoiler free!

winter anime: Ace of Diamond, Aldnoah Zero, Boueibu, Bonjour Sweet Love, Durarara, Magic Kaito 1412, Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, Shirobako, Yowamushi Pedal )

older anime: Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince, Shingeki no Bahamut Genesis, Sword Art Online II, Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji, Hitsugi no Chaika )

still watching: Sailor Moon Crystal, World Trigger )

New season, I'm hoping to check out Arslan Senki, Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo, Ace of Diamond S2, Ore Monogatari, Yahari Ore no Seishun Rabukome wa Machigatteiru Zoku, Kyoukai no RINNE, and maybe Owari no Seraph and Plastic Memories.

I've read the manga for Yamada-kun. I'd always hoped that Yankee-kun to Megane-chan would get an anime, but the mangaka's other work being adapted is great too. It's like my other favorites all over again... I like Oresama Teacher, the mangaka's newer work, Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun gets adapted. I like NG Life, the mangaka's newer work, Akatsuki no Yona gets adapted. I like Yankee-kun to Megane-chan, the mangaka's newer work, Yamada-kun gets adapted. Well, I'm glad their newer works are popular enough to get the anime treatment! ♥ I watched episode 1 of Yahari Ore... (Oregairu). Hikki's monologues are the best. I chuckled a lot through the episode. I hadn't finished S1 of Baby Steps, so no S2 for me until I do.

(Wow, looking at my previous post, I watched everything I planned on watching, and then some, except for Nanatsu no Taizai)
A belated post about all the stuff I bought in Japan. I bought... a lot. XD;;; (How did all of this fit in my luggage? Good question...)

All the Prince of Tennis stuff I bought. Really amazing how Prince of Tennis is still popular with so much merchandise. I guess the merchandise will keep the series going. Even though I'm not currently following Shin Tenipuri, I'm still buying the merchandise. :'D;; I won the huge towel from a UFO catcher. :3;; (It is now hanging on my wall.)

Kiyu and I created a series to link everything together on AO3 for the cake verse~~. Cake verse now officially has a name. XD;; (But I bet it'll still be caaaake to many)

Until the End of Time

The series is named in such a way because of this scene from the manhua (Rule 20) where we spent forever trying to figure out what Lesus would say to Grisia as a vow. It can't be "until death do us part" because yeah, death isn't going to part them~. And now that the verse is continuing into present time with reincarnation, "Until the End of Time" it was! I'm excited. Seeing these fics linked like this makes me want to toss more side stories in there. XD; Kiyu already has one up~.

Most of the anime series I was watching over the spring and summer have ended! Here's what I finished watching. I didn't finish watching a lot.

Haikyuu, Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, Ao Haru Ride, Free, other )
