Reporting from Japan!

I’ve just landed today, and spent the day going around confirming routes to get to various venues. This trip, I will be going to the Internet Independent Live Fes, and Mikupa 2011 (!!!!!!!!). I’ll try to bring as many updates as I possibly can!

For now, have some shortcake:

Bonkurasu's Chinese New Year and V-day's wishes!


Since this year is the year of the Tiger, the picture above is very apt, with EVA02 in Beast Mode. Not to mention, it’s in red, an auspicious color amongst the Chinese customs. =D

Pity this year I won’t be able to collect as much as I had when I was 10 years back… zzz

Happy Lunar New Year!

Into the third year of idiocy

Target lock on ^q^

Bonklers far and wide! Today we celebrate three years into the endless journey of life and being four year olds when it comes to the things we like.

Today marks the 3rd anniversary for The Bonkurasu Brigade. All the food- um, writers here thank you for your support, and we’ll continue bringing you news, translations and other random things on the internet which makes us happy fans.

To commemorate this anniversary, I ate my first parfait. It was delicious.

I wonder what 2010 will bring us. Till next time!

Past Bonkurasu Downtime

Bonkurasu was down for the past week due to server shifts and software errors in the server that Bonkurasu was in, hence I haven’t been able to update much.

funsite
In other news, some other Minorin fan made an unofficial ‘funsite’. WHY IS IT CALLED A “FUNSITE”?? -dirty thoughts abound-

Now I don’t need to slowly read the Japanese text one-by-one to know what Minorin is talking about. 8D -lazy-

In any case, I hope Bonkurasu will continue to be up, and the server stop eff-ing up. Gah.

Summer Time! And updates about the Bonkurasu

It’s been a long time since I’ve updated on what’s our current members are doing now… (did I ever blog about this topic? o_O) Anyway, here’s a quick rundown:

3nin

– Sentinel011 is being a guard dog at some jungle near the middle of the island. (Actually, he’s just serving his ‘reservist’)

– Ume is having much fun rotting her life away after being hectic and busy and nearly snapped (wait, she already did in some sense) after doing her first semester in her FYP. 3 weeks till the next one starts.

– Iron2000 is also rotting at home, but have been doing so for the past 1-2 months since his semester holidays started.

– Shia is still studying at a local university.

– Serenity has been busy playing for some local gaming championship tourney in the aussie-land.

My introduction~

Hey there

I’m Serenity and I used to run my own blog with animeblogger which was fairly well known amongst the community, but i recently decided that I no longer want to do this job alone. I want to bring a large community my thoughts and views in the anime world and express myself along with friend’s and fellow writer’s so I’ve joined up with Bonkurasu.

I hope to bring this community the best possible anime coverage i can bring. and reviews and views on the anime that i watch and get deeply into.

I love anime mostly because its a story that can’t be told in real life but still holds a lot of moral and reflection to life that can teach us and help us through time’s and challenges we come across.

i will also be bringing gaming coverage of some of the biggest gaming scenes in the world, including interviews with professional gamers and updates in the gaming world and reviews.

Well that’s all for now. i will add more to my intro later ^^

Birthday comings and whatnot.

Well yes, today’s my birthday!

12423

And this post is to dedicate the presents I received (or on hold because the stuff ain’t here yet XD)

– Perfume’s upcoming ⊿ album from ume
– a pair of great sounding Denon AH-D1001 from Lss
– Tonight’s Transformers II movie tickets by Julius_Firefocht from NK-DS

There might be more to come, but I’m not expecting anything more, anyway. ^^;;

Also, many thanks from well-wishes by my colleagues, some SGAB peeps, NK-DS people, janice, jy,” Paner, horcruxes77, chanus_aloba, ArtemisMaster, PolynesianDancer, Keyfob “(from Perfume City Forums), Nocab (from Perfume City irc Channel), Satomi (thanks for the e-birthday card XD), etc (updated as of 5:30pm GMT+8)

And the above is Perfume’s P.T.A picture I saw while lurking the intarnetz. It’s a much smaller version of the P.T.A’s 1 year anniversary wallpaper.

Hiatus no more, out of cosplay.

Yes, so I’ve decided that cosplaying is an expensive hobby that wasn’t fulfilling for me, with the amount of time/effort/money put into it, and it all feels superficial to me already. The local cosplay scene isn’t what it used to be; there isn’t any close-knit kinship kind of feeling anymore.

Cosplaying just isn’t fun to me anymore. It felt more like a popularity contest, with major bitching added.

What about my old costumes?

Honestly, I have no clue. Probably sell it after doing some repairs on it, I suppose. But I doubt anyone has my height/size ratio, since I’m kind of skinny/underweight.

However, the friends I made during the course of time when I cosplay, they shaped a substantial part of my life.

No, no I’m not feeling melancholic, just finally decided on what to do with this hobby of mine called ‘cosplay’.

But to the rest of the cosplay scene, and those who still find it fun to cosplay, don’t let this entry get to you XD Cosplaying is all about having fun role-playing the characters you like in their respective costumes.
