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.
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.
The Gundam Thunderbolt panel was an amazing panel. Not only did we get to view the first U.S. release of the movie but, also their was a mini concert with the band that performed the music from the anime soundtrack. The anime was based on the animated series Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt. The series was very short. The movie is a continuation of the animated series called Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky, which continues the story of series after the One Year War.
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.
