Chronological Record #4 ~ Musings on Anime Conventions

Nichijou convention

Apologies for not coming out with another post last week. The last days of college and preparations for my long-awaited (and needed!) summer vacation have been keeping me rather busy. Because I haven’t been able to watch or catch up with any anime at all the past week, I’ll instead share my musings on a staple event that every anime fan knows of: anime conventions.

Wishing AceRailgun All the Best

Kaburagi Kotetsu injured

Well, this is rather embarrassing. Last night, I let AceRailgun write a smackdown post against me because it’s always nice to have a little fun and challenge in the Aniblog Tourney.

And now, he is currently in the hospital having been hit by a car (no joke). This leaves me in a very embarrassing bind, because I planned to write a retaliation post once his smackdown post came out. Of course, the smackdown post came right after I fell asleep, so I didn’t have the chance to read it until now this morning and come up with a counter post.

So what does this mean for me? For now, I’ll let his smackdown post be, and I won’t be writing a counter post. I’m not sure how this will affect our Aniblog Tourney match, but I will not ask for nor give votes away. I shall leave it all up to the voters to decide on the better blog from here on.

Really, this is a tough bind you’ve left me in, AceRailgun. And I wish you all the best and hope you’re okay!

EDIT: AceRailgun is all okay, and is back blogging. That said, he decided to take down his smackdown post since it just didn’t fit his style. It was still a fun smackdown post though, and I even enjoyed it. 🙂

Pure Water Adolescence ~ An Age-gap Yuri Romance

Yuri

Don't dwell too much into the meaning of this picture... 😉

First off, welcome! My Aniblog Tourney match against AceRailgun has arrived, and you can vote here. For those of you new-comers, you’re in luck as I just happen to have a compilation post all ready for you! Have a look at it, and do check out this post if you’re curious as to what I have to say about the Aniblog Tourney and my opponents. In the meantime, I’ll be talking about one of my top favorite yuri manga seeing as there’s not enough yuri here in these waters considering that I’m a huge fan of yuri. (i-i-it’s not like I want to rally up all the yuri fans’ votes or anything like that…)

A Childhood Dream of Space Exploration

A promise to become astronauts

Like most people, I once dreamt of becoming an astronaut. The prospect of blasting off into space to go boldly where  no man have ever gone before is thrilling and a magnificent worthy goal, to say the least. Space Brothers offers a fun and realistic look into the trials undertaken by aspiring astronauts, and at the end of the trials, the dream would be realized by only a select few.

Aniblog Tourney II ~ Prelude

Aniblog Tourney Bracket

The day after Ephemeral Dreams‘s birthday, a bracket was released. This bracket, the object of a great many affections and fears, will bring back together several anime blogs to compete in a prestigious tourney. That’s right, it’s the 2nd Aniblog Tourney bracket! Two years ago, psgels from Star Crossed Anime Blog overwhelmed the competition, continuing on to become the champion of the 1st Aniblog Tourney. In this new improved tourney, we now have new additions and some noticeable absences of previous competitors. And I shall be one of those new participants. Here in this post, you’ll not find any trash talking, but you’ll certainly see some commentaries, teasing banter, and a bit of a personal momentary conflict on my part.
