    • Happy Chinese New Year 2016!
      新年好!恭喜發財!새해 복 많이 받으세요! Happy Chinese New Year to all those who celebrate! Its that time of year again for the Chinese, Koreans and anybody else who celebrates the new lunar year. Being brought up in the UK and then living for Japan for 17 years, one does not really feel the atmosphere of what folks are celebrating back in their homelands. For us in Japan it […]
    • Tokyo Snow
      The first snow of the year for Tokyo wasn't too bad - most of it melted by the evening. Public transport was thrown into a chaos though. It's been rather cold in Tokyo however and I have a feeling that we are going to be in for some heavier snow. Back in mid Feb 2014, Tokyo experienced what was apparently the worst snow ever. Does it snow in your n […]
    • Anime Shrine
      At the beginning of the year, folks in Japan would flock to their favorite shrine or temple to make a prayer for the up n coming year. There are a few ways to make a prayer and one of them is to write on a wooden plaque called Ema [絵馬] and hang it up in a designated area in the shrine grounds. Akihabara has a shrine called Kanda Myojin [神田明神] - for the past […]
    • Coming of Age Day Japan
      Monday was a public holiday known as "Seijin no Hi" [成人の日[せいじんのひ]] or "Coming of age day" where those who have turned 20 are declared adults meaning they can now do SDV (Smoke, Drink and Vote) of they want. Those celebrating would dress up in Kimono (for girls) or Hakama (for guys) although many guys can't be bothered (or do not have […]
    • Hybrid Smartwatch
      Can't decide whether you want to get rid of your current watch for a smartwatch? Don't want to take the plunge to get a smartwatch because you don't like the thought of not being able to tell the time when the battery is flat? Why choose when you can have both - through some simple DIY'ing. Today we take a lookie at how I fused my Huawei […]

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:
