It should be 2019 for most of the world now so, Happy New Year! ~
No, I did not finish the glass of alcohol that is in the photo below. I did have a bit for ‘celebratory tradition’ though! The itch that came after was tolerable and I found myself dozing off really quickly. All in all, it wasn’t a bad start to the new year.
If you realised my AhoBaka birbs aren’t in the photo this year, it’s because a good friend gifted me these AhoBaka nitotans for Christmas ❤
Here’s continuing this cosplay compilation post streak from 2016, 2017 and now, 2018.
(I also technically have one from 2015 too but it’s only on Instagram.)
Here’s my 2018 summary collage:
December this year was one heck of a busy time… although, looking back on it now, it honestly didn’t seem like much. Christmas preparation took up a surprising amount of time for me, and then there was a trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with friends to attend Comic Fiesta, so that ate up some time too, along with part-time work and other life responsibilities.
I’ll be winding the time back because this post is WAY late and it’s almost the new year already, but I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!! Whether you celebrated with family, friends, chilled at home, or worked the holiday away, I hope you had a good day anyway! Here’s wishing you all the happiness and joy in the world.
Enjoy the last few days of 2018 🙂
This is also my 200th post 🙂
When Sunrise first announced a new anime project in the Tiger & Bunny franchise, I was super excited for it! I’m not going to lie and say I wasn’t disappointed when it was revealed that the project was an original anime series not actually tied to the Tiger & Bunny universe, but Double Decker looked pretty cool all its own with an interesting production team working on it to boot!
As of today, I’ve caught up to the recent Ep 6 that’s been released, so it’s not entirely accurate of a ‘First Impressions’ post any longer, but I’ll do my best to keep it as ‘surface level’ as I can.
Anime: Double Decker! Doug & Kirill「DOUBLE DECKER! ダグ＆キリル」⇒ Fall 2018
To sum it up in a sentence:
Double Decker follows a two-man, veteran and rookie detective team, from the SEVEN-O Special Crime Investigation Unit who specialise in cases involving Anthem, a highly lethal, mutation-causing drug.
WARNING: Rated for ages 17+. Violence and (somewhat censored) profanity.
I honestly have to admit that out of all the anime I’ve tried from this Fall season, including my bias towards Golden Kamuy and JoJo part 5… Double Decker would be the series I’m actually ENJOYING the most.
Besides STGCC 2017, I also forgot to write on Gamestart 2017 and need to catch up on that too! But for now, have my little experience from this year’s Gamestart 2018 🙂
The 5th edition of Gamestart Asia was held 2 weeks ago, on 13 and 14 October 2018 (Sat and Sun) at the Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
*Note: Photo-heavy post.
I’d only planned to head down to the con on Sunday due to other commitments the day before, but it was just as well that there weren’t any guests nor special showcases etc. I was interested in catching this year. Also hadn’t planned to cosplay at all for the event, but then found out a few days before that instead of the S$12 ticket entry for a day, cosplayers would be able to get in free.
WELL, you might have heard how cheapskate Singaporeans are, yes? This is a prime example of how stupidly cheapskate I am to decide to rush a simple, incomplete costume out in 3 days.
Hm… I’m not sure how late I am writing this post. 5 weeks late? There about I guess? Seeing as some of Fall’s 2018 anime already have 5 episodes available and counting, hahahaha!
I honestly haven’t been reading as much manga recently… which is pretty weird to think about. I’ve been spending a lot of time lazing around, playing games and sometimes working on cosplays when I should be putting priority on other more important life-stuff to be sure. Been procrastinating a ton and not proud of it. Gotta buck up and get on track (ง •̀_•́)ง
Well, ‘watching anime’ as been one of my procrastination activities too so as one might expect, I’ve already started watching a number of series from this season! Way more than I expected to be sure, haha!
