Anime Central 2010 and Anime Expo 2010

Seems I have been abandoning this. Bad me.

Anyway, pics later.

I just wanted to throw it out there that I was the TK in this video:

(Edit: LOL This video is now famous on Kyou mo Yarareyaku)

This was also me with the wolverine (4 glowsticks in hand) in the right doing wotagei in front. Anytime you saw wolverine at AX2010, that was me

Otakon 2009

Oh man I’m a lazy bastard…I have not updated in 7 months. The chances are, that Comiket report will probably never happen (see couple posts below).

I begin to realize that laziness sets in when I have to write large amounts of text then layout pictures.

So from now on I will only do one, not both.

With that said, let’s see what happened at Otakon.

A picture is worth a thousand words, so I will just post picture highlights…

1) The man, the legend, the director god himself, YAMAKAN / Yamamoto Yutaka / ヤマカン

Yamakan 2

(He blinked, Orz. He was extremely impressed about my AX 2007 Haruhi poster which I fought an arm and leg for.)

This picture amused me

This set of picture amused me:

It’s Mizuki Nana and Hirano Aya posing for pictures together (left from Nana’s blog, right from Aya’s blog). I can just feel the horde of Nana fanboys around the world collectively pop their veins when they see this picture while cursing profanities (“Get away from our goddess, you filthy woman!” etc.) Is there anyone out there who is a die-hard Nana fan and doesn’t hate/laugh at Aya, or is a die-hard fan of both? If you are, please disprove me and leave a comment – I wish I am proven wrong.

I admit (which is no secret by now) that I am a huge huge huge Hirano Aya fanboy/worshipper/follower, but I have never been one to laugh at / speak bad of other seiyuu and singers. But from my experience in the seiyuu otaku world, the ones who badmouth Hirano generally fall into the following categories:

1) Mizuki Nana fanboys
2) Horie Yui fanboys
3) Tamura Yukari fanboys
4) Fanboys of other seiyuu

Seriously, are fanclubs and fanboys so insecure that they feel the need to ridicule other popular seiyuu icons in order to make themselves feel better and superior? I for one have never felt the need talk down fans of other seiyuu in order to show my support for Aya. I admit that she’s not perfect – she still needs to work on her singing during live performances (she’s already much better from what I see in Animelo 08), she needs to fire her make-up artist, and I did laugh a little @ Aya Style bikini. But there are many things which she excels and cannot be replaced by others – voice acting (I dare anyone to say with a straight face that strictly in terms of voice acting, Nana is better than Aya), her energy, stage presence, etc.

As for those rumors / slander about Aya originating from 2ch (e.g. “she’s using seiyuu as a jumpboard into the mainstream entertainment!” or “according to animation staff, in reality, she’s a stuck up snob!” or “She’s getting so much coverage because her dad’s a powerful dentsu executive!”, etc.) Well guess what, I really don’t give a rat’s ass about them. Neither should you. Since when can the crap coming out of 2ch ever be taken seriously? INTERNET, SERIOUS BUSINESS!!!!!11111I like VIP and 2ch culture and I find it extremely funny, but anything coming from 2ch should always be taken with a grain of salt because there’s so much trolling.

Just some random seiyuu ota ranting from me…
