Yes folks, I iz in AKL infiltratingz ur armegedonz. Armaggeddon Auckland was quite a bit bigger than Armaggeddon Christchurch, but contrary to my expectations, apparent anime fandom is not directly proportional to the size of the event. Here's my scoop on this event that I was actually heavily anticipating.

Because I felt bored, I decided to run around Auckland a bit and take some photos of places that I've always wanted to go to. So Kagami and Tsukasa packed up and came with me.

There is a reason I'm a figma collector. The biggest reason being Max Factory seems to know exactly what I want. They will get their money once they start releasing more win. Hakurei Reimu is one of them, but I want them to announce a Reisen Udongein Inaba too!!

I didn't expect my last blog post to be embraced with such a warm response, and I would like to thank Tadano Suki, Nakano Azusa, Katherine Williams, Tuna, Kimura Reiko, Tiara, Suna, Sylvia, Kate, Rita and Sancta for posting all those constructive comments from the same IP address.

I'd like to say that I really enjoyed the event, and the cosplayers were a lot of fun too. I'm not sure why the spammer got so hot and bothered about what I said about the cosplayers because its true, but I'll let it say what it must to get over it. For those of you who were awesome, kudos. To those of you who failed, just try harder and earn a place of praise in my future posts.

And to the one I bought posters from, you're awesome ;). See you at Armaggeddon.

Its summer 2009, and I've never said this before, but there's too much anime to watch. There are more than 20 weekly shows lined up and another 10 sets of OVAs and OADs to watch out for. That's 1 1/2 hours a day, 10.5 hours a week, 45 hours a month. Not much. But the time spend downloading performing black magic on the shows is enough to drive me mad. Don't know about you though.

For those of you still in the dark, you guys can check out the multitude of blogs that blog about all the anime this summer. There are so many of them, I couldn't be bothered doing a summer list this time, since there are so many of them. If you're really lazy, click on the jump.
