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 […]


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 […]

Chibi Links 24-September-2008

September 24, 2008

This branded rice is absolutely crazy… A dumped girlfriend… Current Japanese fashion of slashed jeans and flouncy dresses. I like the first two of the abstract watches the best. Ranging from ice-cream to flight insurance to dry ice to fishing supplies, all from vending machines… The Japanese idea of eating without a napkin…

Name Generator

September 9, 2008

  I stumbled across a Japanese name generator the other day, so I thought to myself “I’ll give it a try!” After typing in my name Klara, here’s the results I got back. According to Rum and Monkey’s name generator. My name Klara meansÂ é»’ć· Kurokawa (black river) çŸŽćŒ„ć­ Miyako (beautiful march child). It also warned that it […]

Learning Japanese

August 21, 2008

A little while back I was going manga shopping with someone who wouldn’t have the greatest interest in manga or anime. This particular person (let’s call them G) still flicks through my blog and at times this person can be a valuable wealth of constructive criticism. When I was buying manga and G tagged along I was able to prattle on […]

Adventure Reviewed

August 16, 2008

Phew! I certainly have a lot to blog about over such a short period of time. So I’m going to write this post in the order that I did the activities on that day and include lots of pictures! First of all let’s start with the manga I bought in Dublin. The first series I bought was […]

Tsumami kanzashi

June 30, 2008

I thought it was time for a cultural post, as I’ve woefully neglected it thus far. Even more surprising it’s somewhat a fashion post. Normally I’m a t-shirt and jeans kinda girl, just throw it on and hope it lands right. But every once in a while a dim glimmer of interest in fashion switches on. First of […]

My Journal

January 31, 2008

This is a picture of the journal I bought today. I know that this had nothing to do with anime or manga but it’s cultural. This morning I happened to be passing the stationery section of a bookshop but something caught my eye. Normally I would pass the stand for luxury journals but I found this beauty at the very […]
