I attended my first anime convention back in 2007 with my younger cousin and Drey.   Since then I’ve attended, two cons per year for the past 11 years up until last year when the number increased quite rapidly in our pursuit to build SDE. Over the years, I watched the convention circuit change in many ways and for those of you who are apprehensive about attending your first con (for whatever reason).

Imagine you died and was reborn living out your Otaku fantasy building giant robots and had magic powers well in this anime it happened. The story is every Mecha Otaku’s dream which is to build your own Mecha. Knight’s & Magic is a funny and ironic anime series. I am a huge Mecha fan so this anime really stood out to me because it was a combination of all my favorite genre’s in one. I was curious on how the anime incorporate magic with Mecha.  The Mecha’s in this anime share a similarity to the same one in the Gundam series which I loved. The anime series is a fun show to watch.

Challenge:  Pick three anime characters that remind you of yourself and tag people to participate.  For the sake of the post, I will elaborate on why these characters are reflective of my personality.
