Beauty Pop is one of my favorite manga to reread each year because I can never get tired of this story. I wasn’t a really big fan of shoujo manga but Beauty Pop definitely changed that for me. I love a good shoujo manga with a strong female character that doesn’t just fall head over heels over the first guy that talks to her. These storylines are quite hard to find but I have a few on my bookcase.

12 Days of Anime: Series I’m Looking Forward To Watching

As much as I love to sit and watch anime I never have enough time to sit and wrap myself in the world. I have to set time aside to start a series because of how busy life has been the last couple of months. The last anime I watched this year wasn’t even new, I rewatched some episodes of Inuyasha because I didn’t want to start a series and don’t have time to finish it.

I got my anime fix by watching shows I’ve seen already and I need to break out of this habit and finish some new series I’ve been wanting to watch for some time.  I’ll be doing better starting next year setting time aside to watch these anime shows because it’s something I’ve been trying to do for a while and it’s eating at me that I’m not relaxing and watching anime like I used to.

12 Days of Anime: Cats and Anime

Day 2 of 12 Days of Anime and I thought i’d get a little personal and introduce my babies. Cats are one of my favorite things in life and nothing can keep me away from annoying one of mine. The first anime cat I saw was in Sailor Moon way before I even had a pet. I believe Luna was the first one I saw that always made me want a black cat. Anime with cats in them are on my absolute must watch list.

12 Days of Anime: For the Love of Bulbasaur

To start off my contribution to 12 Days of Anime, I wanted to write about how I became a big fan of Bulbasaur. It’s an unusual story that led to a slight obsession over this Pokemon but I’m pretty sure someone out there is my kindred spirit on this one. Bulbasaur and their evolution’s are one of the best things I got from Pokemon. Oh! and Ash telling me to never give up but our focus is on this cutie. Continue reading

I’m late with it but I’ve seen the announcement and still didn’t take 5 mins to watch the trailer. I’ve been looking forward to seeing if DC would redeem the DCU movies. The way I feel about DCU movies is a whole other topic but I’m looking forward to Aquaman because of Jason Momoa.

This man has embodied Aquaman since taking on this role in the Batman v Superman movie. I like Jason Momoa as a person too so I’m really rooting for this movie to be great.

Isn’t the Masquerade everyone’s favorite part of an Anime Convention? It’s where cosplayer’s get to showcase what they poured their hard work and dedication into. Whether be through sewing, knitting, molding and other forms of crafting, I am excited to see it. I also love to see the skits prepared for these events, they are usually- always the funniest way to see some of our favorite characters portrayed.

This year the contestants did not disappoint.

On Sunday the last day of Anime NYC, I was able to catch the panel and get some insight from women in the professional gaming field. These ladies turned their love for gaming into a career, I’m extremely proud of them for being able to make a living off of a hobby they’re passionate about.
