If I were to Organize a Comic Con-esque Event What Would It Be?

Hello there Potatots! Sorry for not posting anything from the beginning of August, personal problems with my family surfaced and it was hell.  As a self proclaimed super fan in a small city like Kota Kinabalu, events here for fans and enthusiasts are limited unlike West Malaysia the fans events are almost one month per event.  If I were to have a comic con standard event what would it be like?

We all know that Comic Con is America’s biggest event and a lot of celebrities, comic book artists would be there and it is more western pop culture centered. For fans of two worlds, eastern pop culture and western pop culture; conjoined events are a rare thing. The main highlight of my dream comic con would be the best of both worlds, both eastern and western pop culture would have equal exposure to old and new fans.

Who would be at the event?

All kinds of comic book companies like Marvel, DC to show case their awesome arsenal of comic book heroes and goodies. Figure companies like Kotobukiya, Good Smile Company, Max Factory to show case their upcoming releases of figurines from your favorite anime and comic book. Animation studios from Japan like Studio Gainax, A1 Pictures, Ufotable, MAPPA to showcase exclusive concept arts and visual arts to aspiring Animation students to indirectly motivate them on their dreams. Other than that, CURE WORLD COSPLAY would also be there to showcase awesome cosplay photos of cosplayers.

Where would it take place?

My hometown, Kota Kinabalu City of course. Sabah is a state of tourism in Malaysia, vast sandy beaches for tourists to enjoy and the food in Sabah is delicious. Everyone in Sabah are super friendly and nice.

Who would fans want to meet?

Guests of the events are super important for event attendees, and meeting guests would be an awesome thing. For Marvel Fans, meeting Stan Lee would be a big dream come true. As for DC fans, meeting stars from the DCTVU and DCEU would be a dream come true like meeting Grant Gustin, Stephen Amell, Melissa Benoist from the TV universe of DC. While for Eastern fans, meeting voice actors from their favorite anime would be an awesome experience; Suwabe Junichi, Ono Kensho, Ono Daisuke, Kamiya Hiroshi, Kaji Yuki etc.

Wouldn’t it be awesome to have a comic con-esque event dedicated to both Eastern and Western pop culture instead of having the argument of which side is better. Do check out eventbrite’s website to have your own event up and known to everyone across the web!

Katsugeki Touken Ranbu: So far, So good

Hey Potatots! How’s your Summer so far? Good? Bad? Meh? Well, here is the update and my thoughts of Katsugeki TouRabu so far….

It’s just the second week of airing and it is already damn good for the first two episodes. The graphics and CG were JUST AWESOME, BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZING! -35bcda87860645fe Sasuga Ufotable and their high budget. Even during the first episode, I am drawn to the fire CG that they produced Like WHATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT?! It’s more beautiful that the swords. /cue all my babies being butt hurt

As for the music, MY GOD I WANT TO CRY SO BAD!!! It’s so good, the OP is sang by our Tsurururururu aka Saito Soma, it is so beautiful yet angsty at the same time. As for the ED (Ep 2 on wards) was sang by Kalafina, and it is SUPERBLY ANGSTY! Kalafina has the eerie nice vocals that gives me chills after Kuroshitsuji’s Lacrimosa. received_200407173657214

I won’t spoil any story plot points, I’ll save that for the review. If you are still speculating on watching Katsugeki or not… Let me drop some screen shots to convince ya’ll to  watch Saniwa or not.

K Drama Recommendation: Bride of The Water God

Hey Potatots, prayers had been heard! Bride of the Water God had officially became a Korean Drama! For those who doesn’t know about Bride of the Water God, the series is a Man Hwa by Yun Mi-Kyung and the series is beautiful. *wipes tears*

I hope they properly execute the love story of Habaek and So Ah.

Although the drama differs from the source material, it is wonderfully done for the first episode. I really hope fans of the man hwa to watch this~

The Lego Batman Movie Review

The loss of Adam West few weeks ago was a devastating moment for everyone; Adam brought Batman to life in the 60s. I was impacted slightly hard as my grandfather also passed away at the age of 88 earlier this year. On the bright side, I finally watched The Lego Batman Movie. I lost my chance to watch it on the big screen last time as being a college student with no transport and data is hell. I waited approximately 4 months and a few weeks for Kiss Cartoon to have the HD version of the movie.  *sigh* I know… I know…

The overall story plot for the movie was enjoyable and fun, I did briefly watch Batman the brave and the bold to know his rouges gallery villains and as a Batman fan, I recognize all of them. I enjoy all the jokes implemented in the movie itself about the whole Batman history from the darks days until the current DCEU era, like super homage to the history of the cape crusader! Woo~

My favorite part of the whole movie would be the infiltration of the fortress of solitude, which turns out that Batman, was not invited to the 75th anniversary of the Justice League party by superman. The whole movie was a typical Joker VS Batman story with a bunch of jokes and references thrown into the movie. I genuinely sympathizes Joker when Batman said he was not his biggest enemy. That is just ouch to the heart. I also enjoy all the nerdy references thrown in the movie from other big fandoms.

I highly recommend this movie to all the Batman fans out there to enjoy this movie. For all the geeks out there and have not watch the movie, you are wasting time. Go watch it ~

Free Talk From Minami

It was pure coincidence when I chose to watch the movie ON THE 20th Anniversary of Harry Potter. I was also stoked that the villains that joker recruited are all the villains from other popular fandoms, like LOTR, HP, Doctor Who etc. I was fangirling non stop when I heard the iconic voice of the daleks. Although most of the dialogues are cheesy, the best one liner would be the password scene, it’s throwing shade to iron man. hahahahahaha

 

Summer 2017 Anime

Hey Potatots! Summer is here, on steam’s side Summer Sales. On the Western side, SPIDERMAN HOMECOMING! While… on the Anime side, new anime! However, my summer anime would be prioritized anime series. I won’t be touching on anime that is new as I pick anime by familiarities and seiyuu who would be voicing the characters.

My List of Summer Anime

Katsugeki/Touken Ranbu

TouRabu Katsugeki.jpg

My no.1 prioritized anime, it’s touken ranbu salty version. I had been waiting for this since last year when they announced it. I suggest you all to read the Touken Wiki before watching. Don’t simply jump in to tourabu because of Hanamaru. /glares  (Salty saniwa alert

Jigoku Shoujo Season 4

Jigoku shoujo

Saiyuki Reload Blast

Saiyuki

I would probably watch this ONCE I binge the old ones. It’s Journey to The West, one of my favorite Chinese folklore.

全职高手 Review

Last week, one of the most unique non Japanese anime had ended, and I managed to watch the last episode yesterday.  全职高手(Pin Yin: Quan Zhi Gao Shou) also known as The King’s Avatar for Western fans is a novel from China by the author ‘蝴蝶蓝‘ took the anime world by surprise as the 1st anime that had been developed and made in China. Some weebs are salty about this I know…. Being multilingual, I really enjoyed this series; the RAW for this series is an advantage since I am pure Chinese and speaks fluent Chinese, their jokes that only Chinese speakers understand is really unavoidable.

Moving on, the story of Quan Zhi Gao Shou is about E-Sports which in reality is slowly getting recognition *cough* Dota 2 *cough* Overwatch *cough* Ye Xiu is a pro gamer for the game ‘Glory’, he was forced to terminate his contract with his E-sports team for unknown reasons. He camped at the nearby Cyber Café and worked there as the supervisor for the café, as Glory launched a new server the 10th server; he went back to the game and all thins excited start from there.

Quan zhi Gao Shou has the official sponsor of McDonald’s China to do some product placement in the series, they even made the limited edition ice-cream a reality. Anywho, Quan Zhi Gao Shou had one of the most eye catching animation style; the standard was indeed Japanese animation standard. I was a bit turned off with the 3D animation sequence for some scenes. It was not really necessary to use 3D. As for the opening and ending, I am very impressed. The opening was awesome, the opening song ‘信仰’ fits it well, the song was really powerful. As for the ending, I really loved it. Unlike the usual Japanese kind, with MV style sequnce. Quan Zhi Gao Shou featured fanarts of the series by various artists that loved the series. That is a top notch level of fan appericiation. giphy

Do support the actually work which is the novel, although it is in Chinese. There is a website provides the translated chapters. http://gravitytales.com/novel/the-kings-avatar bear in mind the updates are slow, as there are 1000+ Chapters to be translated. I personally recommend this series for you all to have a change of pace.

Story: 8.9/10

Character: 8.0/10

    As I mentioned there would be some salty weebs be like ‘ Ewwe, anime characters is speaking Chinese. That’s disgusting’ ‘Anime is supposed to be Japanese NOT Chinese’. Doesn’t really understand that animation has no limitation to what country produces it. I spent 2 years in West Malaysia due to college, I was surprised to see cosplayers that cosplayed as the Characters BEFORE the anime even aired! If you haven’t give this a try, go watch it. Don’t worry about the subbing, your normal streaming website had already got it covered. Not sure about Crunchyroll though… Now, I need to finish StarMyu~ ❤

Stay Awesome potatots!

Souryo to Majiwaru no Yoru Ni Review

Hey Potatots! Spring season is almost ending, I just finished Souryo to Majiwaru. THE ONLY anime I spent time watch from my hectic working time. I guess I am turning into THAT demographic of women. /deep sigh

My life has lost its meaning in the hentai spectrum of anime. Souryo to Majiwaru no Yoru Ni (SouMaji) that is a long ass name and I REFUSE TO CALL IT BY THE ENGLISH name has ended today, I really loved this series as it is tailor made for us thirsty single girls with a sexually frustrated sex life. And, yes I just said it with no regrets.  I will now wait for the full hentai one.

The story of SouMaji tells the story of Fukatani Mio and her crush, Kujo Takahide. Mio met Takahide at their high school reunion; she was turned off by the harsh reality of him being a monk and got wasted. The story does not end there, as she walked home completely wasted Takahide helped her and shit got down from there. I am not spoiling any hentai moments go watch it yourself, IF you need sauce for the uncut one Just ask from me. ;D

The manga for SouMaji is still on going and I am dying to find the sauces both RAW and Translated. (Bilingual advantages) The manga is saucer than the anime like oh my gawd, there are more hentai scenes there. ^ q ^ I’ll leave the link to the manga here, https://nhentai.net/artist/maomi-leon/ (RAW) http://www.dm5.com/manhua-yusenglvjiaohedeseyuzhiye/ (Translated, Chinese), I can’t spoil much for this series because it will ruin the story by 80%.

JUST GO WATCH IT!

At first, I kinda regret knowing this series at 2 FUCKING AM, I had to break the internet JUST to find the manga. Thank god for my awesome friend who found the sauce. I am loving the series to bits.

Games Recommendation: Ensemble Stars

Hello Potatots (possible nick name for readers?), this is my first recommendation post. I will be recommending a game that is dear to me and was responsible for my itabag
that I had been working on. I had brought a few friends into this game and they are more poison than me. lololololol I don’t really care about rankings, I just love to play the game because it was F.U.N .

What is Ensemble Stars?

Ensemble Stars is a mobile idol game from Happy Elements. YOU play as Anzu the female player that had been enrolled to Yumenosaki Academy and is the only girl to be enrolled to the academy. Being the only female student in the school, you are also chosen to be in the producer course to produce idols.

Currently, there are 2/3 versions for Ensemble Stars. I personally play 2 versions, Japanese and Chinese from China version. Although Ensemble Stars has the same system in both Japanese and Chinese Version, the Chinese version has some new features that are quite cool.

Some Features only exclusive to the Chinese version:

Rhythm Game (Actual Rhythm Game)Room (Latest one, Room!)Courtyard (Courtyard roaming. P/S you could also give gifts to the boys during their birthday)

Event (Idol battle for the CN exclusive cards)

Friends (Friends! :D) Limited CN cards (Limited Editon cards for CN EnStars)

Music for your log in page.png (Music for your profile page, you can unlock BGM from completing the rhythm game with full  ♪♪♪)

The Japanese ES is a bit dull and I honestly goes on and off with it. I am used to the Chinese one. lel. I know I had been pushing the Chinese Version. Both the Japanese and Chinese version are VERY similar in gameplay and story.

Japanese ES Feature:

Ori JPN ES (Usual Tapping game, no Rhythm)Ori JPN ES 2 (No petting, just poke them to see there expression)

How to get the games?

For the Japanese version: QooApp (Android User), Change regional settings from your usual Apple ID to Japanese ID)

For Chinese Version: You must have a Wechat ID or a QQ ID to play. It’s also downloaded via WeChat or QQ (Android), Change regional ID from your local to Chinese ID)

 

Disclaimer: Play and fall into hell in your own risk, I am a casual player. I am not responsible for any fangirl overload

It’s My First Convention, And… I Don’t Know What To Do

Hey people, I am here to share wit you on what you should do at your VERY first convention attendance. In conjunction of the annual Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con, I personally have yet to attend any conventions at America, however. My tips work all round for all kinds of convention.

You are hyped, excited for this convention all year, and pre-bought the tickets months before. Yet, you are nervous on what you should bring, should not do etc. Here are some dos and don’ts tips for you.

Dos

  • Follow the rules of the convention
  • Be polite to cosplayers and con-goers
  • Follow the queue.
  • Be mindful at the artist alley, they are other buyers too
  • Ask for permission before taking any photos of the cosplayers.
  • Have fun, but not too much fun
  • Preplan your day to be organized

Don’ts

  • Do not litter the convention hall
  • Do not harass any of the cosplayers, keep your hands to yourself
  • Do not cause any roadblocks just to buy that one art you always wanted.
  • Do not disrespect anyone at the conventions – Guests, Cosplayers, Artist.
  • Do not disobey any given orders from the helpers around the convention
  • Do not bring any illegal items to the convention
  • Do not touch any props of the cosplayers without their permission

Once you know what you should and should not do what should you wear to the convention.

For cosplayers, it depends on themselves like what cosplay are they doing. As for normal con-goers, anything comfortable would do, I highly suggest wearing sneakers instead of flip-flops as you are going to a convention with lots of people; you wouldn’t want your toes to bleed at the end of the day.  Avoid wearing anything that could make you sweat faster even though the convention hall is air-conditioned, sweat is unavoidable.

Next, what should you bring to a convention?

  • Water, to stay hydrated
  • Mini electrical fan
  • Extra money, for precaution
  • Extra recycle bag to put all your loots that you bought.
  • Band aids , for any emergencies
  • ID
  • Food, like cookies or any dry food
  • Camera for awesome photos
  • Power bank for your phone
  • Map of the convention hall, to save time

It is up to you to take notes for your first convention adventure; my favorite thing to do at a convention is shopping down the artist alley to support cool artist. I do also enjoy the panels and guest talks. Side note, it is OK to be shy to ask for a photo from a cosplayer, but remember. HAVE CONFIDENCE!
