Taiwan Travel Log~ Otaku Hotspots

Hey there Potatots, Happy September. I am sorry for taking too long to write this down, the wifi speed in Malayisa is just terrible. Now, I’m back at college to finish off my final diploma semester. Yay…. /Incoherent crying at the background   Anywho, back to topic~ Taiwan is SERIOUSLY Otaku Heaven for poor people that can’t afford to go Japan.

On my first two days in Taiwan, I visited my sister’s Residential area which is Hsin Chu Town. Hsin Chu maybe a small town, but I managed to find some gems for you Otakus. There is a local bookstore in town that has a Manga section, you can get all kinds of manga and light novels from that bookstore. Sadly, I don’t have any pictures for that bookstore; however I remember it was located near a nike shop in Hsin Chu town. Next must go destination for you peeps would be a store also around Hsin Chu town would be, Kuang Nan Shop. This shop is my favorite. It has a floor for Manga and Merch for your favorite anime series. For fans who are seiyuu fans, the CD section will surely please you at Kuang Nan. There is one more comic book shop at Hsin Chu Town, near Jin Pin shopping center. Just like Kuang Nan, it sells a lot of manga there even games!

Entrance to another Heaven

Some precaution for Sin buyers, please MAKE SURE your passport is with you AT ALL TIMES; Kuang Nan is strict at buying sins. (I had experience.

For the next Six days, I spent it at Taipei eating my heart out and getting sunburnt. Taipei has amazing places to see, the underground mall of the Taipei MRT station is HEAVEN. It is one of my personal favorite spot there; the ACG (Anime,Comics,Manga) side is my heaven. There were maid cafes there, I managed to walk by one. It’s called Maiden Diner, sadly I can’t take any photos because of their rules. That was the only open maid cafe I came across, but I didn’t went in as the majority customers there are males, and I kind of Paiseh to go in. = A = ”” However, the maid is kind enough to give me their card.

Tekken Ad, you don’t see this publically shown in Train Stations in Malaysia

 Lastly, the moment you girls and guys? had been waiting for, I finally went to and died at ANIMATE TAIWAN! No shit, that place is heaven for girls and guys. All the original merch from Japan in ONE OFFICIAL STORE! I was lucky enough that Animate Cafe was also happening during my trip, and bonus; IT WAS TOUKEN RANBU EVENT! OH MY RNGSAMA! I did a live stream on Facebook during my day there, met some new saniwas chatted awhile, cried over my poor Malaysian Saniwa luck with all the Izuminokami Kanesada, Kane-san badges. Q A Q  Animate TW is located at Zhong Zheng District near Xi Men Ding, it is close to a hotel which I don’t really know the name due to being distracted by the cafe. (Kinta… Please) You need to walk down a fleet of stairs to go to the shop, it’s an underground shop.

Why I say Taiwan is Japan for poor people, Anime ads EVERY WHERE and the public (Non fans) are alright with it, they don’t really complain about it. The just brushed it off like it was nothing serious.  My other favorite thing in Taiwan is the Fate Grand Order promo train, I rode it TWICE and I am converted to be a FGO follower. Help. Even though I knew Fate series for a long time now…

FGO train, Round 1

Round 2, Hi Gil~ He got me into FGO. Well… He is one of my husbands.

 Overall, Taiwan was really fun. I can’t wait to go back there again. See you guys next time~

My Own Dream Crate?

Hi guys, Koimo here. It had been so long since I wrote at this blog. I’m waiting for this season to be done with cause I have a bunch of reviews to do. And, my college life is shitty. Cause I got blame for something I DID NOT do. That’s a different story. On the bright side, Lootcrate contacted me via email that what if I had my own dream crate. That would be superbly cool! 😀

My theme for that crate would be Mix Cultures. I may love anime with a passion, but I also adore comic book heroes and book characters from the west. Balancing out both Eastern and Western culture. It be really cool to see some cross overs from both worlds. Being one of the rare hybrid fan, it would be an awesome thing do bring to life about.

 

The dark side of Touken Ranbu

Hi guys! Happy April Fools! It’s okay to prank others but don’t let your pranks go out of hand. And, this is not any random blog post. This is a blog post for Fujinsei Blog Carni I am writing about my journey into the wonderful world of Sword Boys, Touken Ranbu.

received_200407173657214 Tsurumaru: Odoroitaka? Aruji-sama?

Mind the stupid crane from above. He’s Tsurumaru Kuninaga. Anyways, Touken Ranbu is an online net game from DMM with the partnership of Nitro+. We the players, are saniwa sages that traveled back in time to bring life to inanimate objects to defeat monsters that wanted to change the course of history. And, thus the pretty sword boys are born.  To a newbie, Touken Ranbu would be interesting since we are learning Japanese history trough hot sexy swords. But, for us older saniwas…. We are the dark side of this wonderful game. I fell into the sinning hell when I’m only 6 months old as a saniwa sage.

received_10209142974557359 Kashuu: Aruji… Why did you harm yourself like this?

Touken Ranbu is also very addictive, once you are in it. There is no turning back…. I did not regret anything since I met lots of new friends in this fandom and half of them were responsible for my corruption as a perverted saniwa sage.

received_482325201969021 Mikazuki: Why is she even my master.

Since last year, after my depression with UtaPri Season 3’s disappointment I started writing fanfic for Touken Ranbu. It’s really fun and interesting since I get to broaden my fanfic fandom. I don’t know what came over me and I was able to write 3 NSFW fanfics for this particular fandom and I’m improving for them.  And all my friends were some how supportive for me since they are also corrupted saniwas. Lol

16-04-02-12-21-06-917_deco Kashuu: * face palm * Aruji-sama…..

Not only that, the musical for TouRan was Superb! I even downloaded it on my lappy. Now I can watch it anytime. The songs were amazing, they are mostly poison to my ears.

received_200411826990082 Tsurumaru: I’m judging you from a far, aruji-sama…

Now, we’ve reached the end of this pointless post. I know you guys are judging me already… I don’t really care. Touken Ranbu is what I love more than anything in the world already. I chose TouRan over my boyfriend sometimes… Nuff said, this game is a double sided blade for me.

P/s:
