The Wicked Eye commands you
EOY is traditionally the last local event of the year that everyone ‘looks’ forward to. It is also the event with the inauspicious luck of always clashing with other events or having problems. There are plenty of problems and complaints about EOY this time round. The unfortunate act by a single investor and the amazing luck of going head-to-head with L2P.
Regardless of all the problems and complaints, as the End-of-Year, it signifies one last hurrah for the ani-manga fan community to get together one last time and as a tradition, CDS is there once more.
Unlike past years, it is free entry this time and at Marina Barrage of all places. They have also set up a questing system where you can win stuffs and scan QR codes. It is pretty interesting stuff for an indie-oriented, generally smaller scale event.
Before you read on to our experience this time round, one last announcement. CDS will be over at Comic Fiesta (with Surface) and Comiket towards the end of the year. If you happen to be in KL or Tokyo then, try and find us!
Thank you. Thank you very much.
AFA at EXPO?! Wah. So far.
Turns out, it wasn’t too bad a choice. More space is good and nothing will tear the fans from a good AFA. There were plenty of fellow doujin-kas, plenty of customers and plenty of sales. There was even some variety of booths and some interesting ones too! We heard stories about things that happened at the concert but since we didn’t go for any of them, we are perfectly happy with this AFA. The only sore point was the absolute lack of Chuu2koi cosplayers. Where is the love for delusionally cute girls?
So rather than tell you everything about AFA, let’s talk about the lessons from the event (and Culture Japan Night 2012. Since that is practically AFA Day 4)
Thy shalt obey the Wicked Eye!
It took weeks but I have finally uncover the secrets of Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai. At first, I did not understand it. What is this Chuunibyou? It sounds like a kiss. Chuu~ Kiss the bowl?
Then as I watch the anime, I was enlightened. Something came to me. The anime. Kyo-ani was telling me something. What? What could it be? Should I go kissing bowls? Will that unlock the dimensional door that allows me to go into Banishment, this world? Will it allow me to HNGGGG at Rikka from episode 5 without overdosing on the moe?
I was frustrated and then I got a whole bunch of artists to put my thoughts on paper. Together, we shall unveil this mystery of Chuunibyou and together, we shall put on such a flamboyant, imaginative display of affection for this crazy, cute and so nostalgic anime that the brilliant minds of Kyo-ani had animated.
Banishment, this world!
