RoaDLM - Anime Expo 2006 Report - Part 01

Anime Expo was a lot of fun this year.  I kinda wish more of the gang had been around to be honest.  Still, one should be grateful for what they get, and so, without further ado, you can at least read up about the convention from one lone demented fanboy with a camera...and way too much time on his hands, heh.

Anime Expo 2006 CosPlay Part 1

And now for your viewing pleasure, we have part 1 of Anime Expo 2006's Cosplay, which I say was probably the most fun and out of control since 1999's, which was truly insane in and of itself. Also, this is probably one of the better versions of a fanshot video out there, in both size and quality.

Discuss and drop comments here. Don't be afraid to start your own threads for things you see up front either.

Anime Expo 2006 Idol Contest

As promised, I have completed the torrent of the Anime Expo 2006 Idol contest...and I say with no ego, this is probably one of the best things I've ever shot, even with that damn guy in front of me who kept getting in my way, heh. I have no words to describe what you are about to see, but it will be better than damn near every American Idol ep that has ever been seen...of that you can be sure.

Fanime Report: 2006

Fanime...Fanime...Fanime...

What can I really say about this convention? Hmm...I was only there for one day, so it's kind of hard to do a a full blown report on it. My tastes are more geared towards the events and experiences of a convention for reasons I'll state below.

Fanime 2006 & Optimus Prime!

For your enjoyment this week, I've created a little story concerning my trip to Fanime 2006. It's filled with thrills, chills, and daring...nah, it wasn't any of that, but it was fun, let me tell you.

Also, in case you weren't aware...IT'S OFFICIAL!!! Peter Cullen Will Be Optimus Prime in the upcoming movie! Now all we need is Frank Welker as Megatron, and we're all set. As for me...I'm cracking a cold one in salute!

Here recently, the Fanfiction Mailing List, also known as the FFML, has opened its doors to pretty much all animation, sci fi, and fantasy stories, noting that their writers for Ranma and Sailor Moon have pretty much dried up and gone on to bigger and better things. A new website is also in the works, and I for one say about damn time.

Fate: Stay/Night Review

Today we have what is an oddity of anime story telling in that despite the best efforts of the production staff to completely screw it up, the story and characters shine through proving how powerful the source material must have been. So without further ado, may I present to you: Fate: Stay/Night.

Fate Stay/Night (TV, 2006)

Overview

Folks, meet Emiya Shirou. They call him the carrot top of Japan...well, not really, but there you have it; an orange haired Japanese boy enrolled in High School. A family friend has been coming over to take care of him since his adopted father passed away, going well into a few years now. Honestly, if this cliche hasn't been overdone, I don't know what is. However, one night, while staying late at school, he comes upon two men fighting to the death with some seriously hardcore edged weapons. One of them notes his presence, and after the duel, in which both broke off the fight for another time, the one who is called Lancer, tracks him down and attempts to kill him. This leads into a chain of events where he finds out he is one of the chosen Magi to fight in a war for the Holy Grail...an artifact which can grant any desire. The Magi, who are the masters, are given leave to summon one servant to aid them...these servants typically being Eiri, the valorously slain; and quite by accident, Shirou manages to summon the best of them, the Sabre...which was surprising to all, especially Sabre, who greets him with the question, "I ask you, are you my master?"

A Fandom Evolution

So, here's an interesting tidbit that slapped me in the head here recently.

I was at Fanime here a bit ago, and the situation that struck me was this:

RoaDLM: Epiphanies at Conventions

Whilst walking through Fanime bright and cheery, I stumbled across a fangirl lovely and pretty. Her boyfriend hovered o'er her dark and blearly, from the bounds of hell, did he seem quite leary, of the fanboy attention she did receive. Pausing not to wonder why my meter is now askew, epiphany struck like morning dew. So here are my words to give it definition; dear brave souls, we have become transcendant in our mission.
