As an anime fan, you learn to speak the language. And recognizing inconsistencies and common tropes is all part of the journey. After being suggested by a friend, I decided to dive a bit deeper into my expertise and discuss tropes that I can’t stand.
A few months back, I published a post titled: Favorite Anime Directors. This list consisted of famed animation directors. As a follow-up, I compiled a list of my Favorite Anime Movies. These films are in no particular order because Top 5 or 10 for anything is too hard to narrow down, I just refuse to do that to myself.
I haven’t been doing much writing as of late but I’ve made a point to stay on top of my blog reading. And if I can, like and comment more because I’m really bad with that. I’m strolling through my feed and find a post labelled: The Comic Vault Is Nominated For A Second Mystery Blogger Award. Out of curiosity, I click it, read through and what do you know I was also nominated.
First off, Thank you Jamie. Aside from the fact that I comment somewhat often, it never occurred to me that our blog was even on your radar. So major shout out to you. I really enjoy reading your posts. This means a lot to me. Secondly, If you’re a fan of Marvel or DC Comics. You’ll definitely want to check him out on The Comic Vault. F.Y.I he does a pretty awesome Red Hood Cosplay.
Last year, I compiled a list of my favorite K-Pop (Korean Pop) songs from that year. This year, I decided to do something little bit different, and focus on the little guy. Seeing how this is my first post of the New Year, I wanted to make it count. So it was very important that it felt authentic. These songs were all chosen based on feeling. And how often I went back to play then after my initial excitement was gone.
Fabolous has always been one of my favorite rappers since he appeared on my radar in the early 2000’s. His witty and charismatic rhymes provided an entertaining listening experience. And while, this particular post isn’t about his music but how can we really pay proper homage without at least acknowledging the artistry. Fab is also known for his fashion sense. Each fit has its own flair and story to go with it. While I am not the most fashion conscious person, this is exactly why we’re here. To talk about nerdy influenced fashion and why Fab is Hip Hop’s Greatest Cosplayer.
Korean American Rapper Heesun Lee is an artist I’ve followed for a while now. She can rap! Her music has a positive message and puts on a dope performance. Her energy level when on stage is truly something to be seen. I also love the fact that she puts on for the culture. Recently, the New York Native uploaded a spoken word piece titled: Female Rappers Rock. Before you read any further, Stop and check out the video.
Anime NYC was lit. I had a fantastic time. Was able to link up with Stephanie of Anime Girls NYC. Shout out to her. Thank you for being such a cool person. Saw some really nice cosplay. Attended some really cool panels and best of all, I was able to enjoy this all with my team.
One of the highlights of my weekend was attending the Nerds on Hip Hop: Bridging Anime & Hip-Hop Panel.
At this point, in my blogging life, I think I’ve made my love for music and animation pretty clear. So anytime, they come together and further enhance each other story, I’m utterly excited. I’ve been going to conventions for many years now and I have been seeing an influx of panels that combine these different narratives. During Anime NYC, I had the pleasure of attending two. In this particular post, I will be focusing on Beyond Bebop: Japanese Jazz. Continue reading →
It’s been a week since Anime NYC ended, as you can see, I am a little bit behind schedule in terms of my Con related posts. I just started a new job, and I’m starting to re-adjust to the workload. But the rest of my posts will drop this week. So be on the lookout.
