Otafest at Animethon

Just wanted to remind you guys that we’re heading back up to Edmonton this year for the Northern con. Our table has been moved closer to the food court but it’s in the same general area. If you’re buying food, you’ll see us. Make sure you stop by to find out what we have in store for you at Alberta’s  favourite Winter anime con.

We will have new handbills, our pins and our friendly team ready to talk to you. Please make sure you come by. :)

Just finished watching Kill la Kill. My god what a finish. I am so sad that it’s over. Easily my new favourite modern anime show now. Great action, fast paced, lots of fun…..fuck it was damn good. Thank god there is an OVA coming out soon.

Now what do I watch? Do I watch Madoka Magica for the mind fuck or do I try to catch up on SAO?

This is my favorite attraction at Disneyland. Not rides or anything, just this stupid little show. I’ve seen it so many times now that I know all the words and sing along while I am drinking a dole whip float.

You guys will enjoy this.

A beautiful ad once again this year. Aurora ads are always really fun to design. Should be able to show you a preview of the first of many ads for Otafest 2015 very soon.

I just want to tell you guys that kill la kill is quickly becoming one of my favourite anime shows of all time. It is SO GOOD. I can’t believe how good it is. It makes me sad that it’s nearly over for me. 

Honestly I put it up there with Urusei Yatsura now. 

at least once a week i go back to look at Aurora’s coronation design

why can’t i afford to cosplay you

I don’t think we have anyone on our team who can make the costume for our Aurora….so I have my doubts. When the design was made, we knew the chances of cosplay for this one were slim to none because….well look at it lol

maybe i can work some magic
