    • Desk Diary 20160906
      This post was due to go up in May but then a bunch of stuff just happened (as it does) - all good stuff though like Anime Expo and a bunch of new license deals with Bandai Visual, Sunrise and more. Much has changed since we last had a look at Desk Diary - not just layout of the office, shop and home but also the equipment that I use which has in turn changed […]
    • Anime & Game Figures 2016 Summer
      Photos taken at the recent Hobby Maker B2B event organised by Good Smile Company and held in Akihabara the other day. The event is usually held after Wonfes so that buyers and license holders can meet with the makers without being bounced left n right by the hordes at Wonder Festival. Anything in this post tickle your fancy? At the moment I'm working wi […]

      Its absolutely boiling hot in Tokyo right now and Summer has only just started! The rainy season finished last week and it looks like its going to be another hot n muggy Summer. Last year wasn't too bad as I got to head South to Sydney for SMASH so I got to escape for a bit. This year however, a lot of things are changing in my life (which is basically […]
    • Pokemon GO Japan
      Pokemon Go was released in Japan last Friday which changed the landscape immediately - I downloaded it and while walking home to catch Pokemon and grab Poke Balls at Pokestops, I took notice of everybody I walked past and 70% of them had their heads down doing the same thing. I haven't gotten out much so am still on level 4 - how about you and how is Po […]
    • Anime Expo 2016
      Anime Expo 2016 took place at the Los Angeles Convention Center from July 1st - 4th. We attended for our 7th (!???) year in a row. Our booth was located in the West Lobby this year as the South Lobby became a safety hazard - they removed all vendors from that hall apart from the AX shop. My panel was held on Saturday 2nd from 10:15AM - 11:45AM at LP4/LACC 41 […]

Otakon 2010. Baka to Photos to Anime. part 1

My second venture to Baltimore for the largest anime convention on East coast. Was waiting for it, and unlike last tear booked my ticket about two month in advance, thus sparing myself from 2 and a half hours queuing under the blazing sun.
This time just walked into the main entrance and grabbed that badge.

And so it went, three days non-stop fun.
Like I was mentioning in my older posts I’m very much into photography. Not professional at all, but rather just for fun.
Enjoy… Otacon 2010 from the inside of the iron shell.

Tank had Breached Into New York Anime Festival!

Believe it or not, this is my second anime convention so far. A bit more than a year ago, I dived into this anime fandom and since then I can’t surface. Everything, manga, anime, art, music, web resources and certainly conventions are so captivating and exiting to me.

So, here’s New York Anime Festival or NYAF for short. It had been held in Jacob Javits Center in New York City, same complex where annual New York Auto Show takes place. Complex itself is pretty huge, but as I’ve been previously warned by one of my friends NYAF occupies only one section of the whole center, and yes it is tiny.

First time being to an anime convention I went to Otacon in Baltimore, Maryland, and oh my goodness it was ginormous – 2 huge buildings topped off with thousands of people. I had a blast there. I’m not saying that NYAF isn’t worth visiting, it certainly is. It’s just a little less fun.

Jacob Javits Center as it looks from the corner of East 34th st. and 11th Avenue:
