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. ūüôā 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‚Äôs 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) […]

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. ūüôā 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’.

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.

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 […]

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!

Yen Press

October 18, 2008

Firstly, I thought I would start writing about the¬†smaller publishers of manga before¬†mentioning the¬†more mainstream publishing companies. Yen Press¬†is manga division of the¬†Hachette Book Group USA.¬†It announced at the last ComicCon in July 2008 that it planned to release a monthly magazine, called Yen Plus,¬†featuring some of their titles. The Yen¬†Press has the .us domain […]
