Street Fighter IV

April 5, 2009

I’m a great fan of the Street Fighter franchise and it was the first interaction I ever had with both anime and manga, until I unmercifully butchered my sibling’s Street Fighter comics since I liked the pictures. I was caught off guard when it was advertised on television and you be able to estimate my happiness […]

Anime Film Festival

March 20, 2009

For some reason or another I always seem to get informed about Japanese related events from the same person. 🙂 The IFI is holding a Japanese Anime Weekend next weekend on 28th and 29th of March. I had my entire weekend mapped out as I planned to attend ‘A Dubliner’s Collection of Asian Art: The […]

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

December 5, 2008

“Time waits for no one.” If you’ve read my previous post on this topic, then you’ll that I have two big thank you’s to award.

I know I’ve neglected blogging recently, I had a set of Chibi Links almost published but my internet browser decided to fail.

To anyone who lives in America and has the opportunity to visit anime convention; even people from England has the biannual London Expo, I would advise you to to go to anything that you can. Ireland on the other hand has only one anime/manga convention once a year for the last four years, it was […]

Cinema Screenings in Ireland

November 10, 2008

I was extremely happy via mulley.net as I found out that there is Japanese Film Festival screening all over Ireland. Even better viewing the movies is completely free, although you need to register and get a ticket but that’s for numbers. The movies being shown are Hotel Hibiscus and Go also being shown with the anime The Girl Who […]

I travelled on the bus down to Cork recently which the driver looked like he was wearing mascara and looking very similar to the bassist from Fall Out Boy. Brilliant bus driver though, he went up in my estimation when I saw a scorpion tattoo on his arm; although the bus was quite manky, especially the air conditioning which howled in protest in being […]

If you’re a regular reader of this blog them you’ll know I have a somewhat unhealthy obsession with the comedy anime Ouran High School Host Club! The first half of the series has been officially released as of today in the United States!

Yay!!* My apologies for my lack of posting recently but all my assignments seem to due all at the same time, much to my annoyance.

“A game where everyone scores….” As my birthday is quite close to Christmas (yes I know it’s still a bit early to be blogging about Christmas). I rarely get the chance nowadays to spend time at games shops but today my mother suggested to call in and see if there’s anything there that she’ll buy to put under the tree. 🙂 […]
