In November, I was able to go to MCM Birmingham - my first anime convention in over two years! Not only that, but I was able to browse the convention in my own time, for the first time in six years. Already having anxieties about the COVID-19 situation, I didn't want any other anxieties this time!
There's no point denying the fact that anime is a large part of my life now. I consume it nearly every day, whether that's by watching an episode or two, or reading manga, or just looking at photographs of cosplayers on Instagram. Quite frankly, it's everywhere. Why? Because anime, as a medium, has helped me.
After a bit of a delay due to my little hiatus, it's time for Fandom Friday! Yup, it's that time of the month where we like to celebrate talent and find new creators to follow within the anime, gaming and K-Pop communities! This time, I'm also going to be featuring another blogger. They've been a recent discovery for me personally, but I find their blog to be so interesting and inspiring, particularly as a cosplayer.
Usually for conventions, I don't get much sleep, but this year I didn't sleep a wink. I just wasn't tired enough. I did try to get some sleep because I knew the day would be so busy, but each attempt of getting sleep simply failed. Regardless, I got out of bed at about 3:30 in the morning and began getting ready for the convention.
In celebration of having 100 completed entries on MAL, I talk about how anime is presented in the UK and the increasing popularity of it.
I share my experiences of an incredible day in Birmingham, which included meeting the one and only Vic Mignogna!
I talk about cosplaying as Tōko Fukawa from Danganronpa - my choice of cosplay for MCM Birmingham 2016.
