Birthday of Ayanami 2012

Once again it's March 30th, Ayanami Rei's birthday. Which is also Hayashibara Megumi's birthday, who voices Rei. To celebrate I've finally opened up a few of my Ayanami Rei figures. Unfortunately no Ayanami Rei Shrine update this year since there are really not much room left in there ^^;

New Camera and Sakura Con Trip

I've been meaning to get a new camera for a while. I wasn't really looking for a DSLR, but the opportunity came up to get one. Of course, the reason I'm getting one is because I am going to Sakura-Con 2012 in Seattle in a week's time (April 6-8, 2012).

St. Patty's and Patty's Meet

It's two. Two. TWO MEETS IN ONE! Yes, we had two doll meets within days of each other. Well to be fair they were two small meets so they were much more manageable :) The first one occurred on St. Patrick's Day on Saturday. We expected almost 20 people... Then realized that most of the attendees on the Facebook page were dolls ^^;;; Anyhoo! We still had lots of fun!

Ending the Chase Early

This chase has gone long enough! Not really... I've delayed it too long that I'm going to end this arc where Saber Lily is chasing Mikuru for putting her in Haruhi/harm's way early. I had a lot more ideas with motorcycles and skateboards, but I can't find them anyway, so whatever! I'll just get to the point earlier and not delay this development any further. So no more talking... Here are a couple of new 4komas!

Fate/Zero Box Set

My original title for this post was "Fate/Zero Box Set Leaves Me Zero in My Wallet" but I found it too long... This is my way of supporting the industry by buying this overpriced Fate/Zero set. Sadly I'm thinking I'll be encouraging Aniplex to charge this same price because someone like me will buy one set -_- Well... I was giving this a try and taking a chance to see if it's worth my money. It helped that my Canadian anime supplier had it at the same price as RightStuf but I didn't have to worry about shipping or Customs charging me tax. So let's see what's inside!

Early March Doll Meet

Okay, so one more doll meet photos I'll post before I get around to my figma comic! This one happened just a few hours ago before I posted it! Which is a rare occasion, since I usually wait til weeks before I post them recently XD

Bird Watching

On a rare sunny day in Vancouver in February, a few of us decided to take a nice walk in Tsawwassen. Yes, that's an actual name of a city south of Vancouver. Very close to the US border. It was intended to be owl-watching walk, but we didn't find any. We saw many other birds though. Also, it didn't stay sunny for long because fog descended very low in the area.

2012 Backlog: January Doll Meet

Not even the end of the year and I'm already backlogged... Laziness and sickness got the best of me... Anyway, there were 2 meets in January. The first one took place on January 14th in Richmond.

Kotatsu 2012

Kotatsu is a mini convention that started by the same group that made the Cos & Effect event last year at UBC. Unfortunately I wasn't feeling very well, so I barely took any photos. Fortunately, however, I met with a couple of new anibloggers in Vancouver and older ones as well. I was finally able to meet with the head of SUTORAIKUanime, Akinari-kun and staff writer SabishiiMiruku. Along with them I also met with RadiantDreamer and Kaionlriu.

The "fortunately" part is at that they took some photos, so head on over to see the Kotatsu post over there at Sutoraiku ;)
