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 […]

Blog Birthday Presents

January 22, 2009

Almost a year ago I decided to start up my blog Klaraflame and although I’m passionate about Japanese culture, as everyone saw from my talk at TCI, I’m of the mind to expand my blogging horizons. I’ve come to the conclusion since Christmas, having more time does not necessarily equate to getting more tasks and blogging […]

I Trust Tommy

December 29, 2008

I had the chance to exercise my anime mind when I attended my first blogger meet up last Sunday, hosted by the enigmatic pancake tsar Tommy Collision and a diverse mix of personalities attended between getting dessert twice, people running around outside in the Irish cold to test speedometers, people pushing cars to make space and (not including myself) […]

A Manga Xmas

December 29, 2008

It’s been a while but I was holding off until I could add manga purchased after Christmas to the entire list of manga presents. Being brief and straight to the point here’s the list and please bear in mind that a big chunk of the manga are xmas presents to myself. 🙂 The second volume of […]


December 24, 2008

I’ve been ill for the past few days, hence the lack of blogging. Even to the extent where I had the intention to take a nap but waking up the next morning after a fourteen hour ‘nap’. Just for something different, Alexia has decided to do a Selection Box with guest bloggers contributing a post […]


November 27, 2008

I know I’ve neglected blogging recently, I had a set of Chibi Links almost published but my internet browser decided to fail. Last night I came back from the Japanese Film Festival and I will blog about The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. Lastly I just have to say that I’ve seen traditional animation and […]

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 […]


November 7, 2008

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 […]
