This post has been updated with additional information. – 17/12/2015 12:32AM In a post made earlier tonight by the noted Australian cosplay photographer, ‘What A Big Camera’s’ Kris Ezergailis was forced to make a statement retracting defamatory remarks against an individual involved within the cosplay community. These defamatory statements were made against a cosplayer named Wen Cheng, involving falsehoods about ingredients being used in the creation of an unspecified type of cooking. In his post, Kris, from ‘What A Big Camera’, states that he did indeed echo falsehoods towards Mr. Cheng to members within the cosplay community. He also states that these falsehoods were “vicious, malicious and highly damaging” in nature towards Mr. Cheng. I retract all statements I made … Continue reading
If you’re expecting the full Persona 4 story repackaged with extra content, then this isn’t what you’re looking for. Instead, it is purely focused on the content found in Persona 4 Golden, focusing on the social links of new character Marie and adding extra character development to Tohru Adachi, Dojima’s assistant/lackey. It also includes episodes based on scenes only found in the Vita port of the original game Persona 4 Golden. Despite the disjointed nature of the narrative and a few problems of Marie’s character, this was a enjoyable anime series to watch. The nice art style, character design and voice acting really added to an enjoyable experience. The extra character development to Adachi also provides a more complex layer … Continue reading
A second series of Sword Art Online is upon the English speaking world and it’s off to a great start. Sword Art Online II Part 1 focuses on the beginnings of an arc set in a VRMMORPG known as Gun Gale Online. As the name suggests, the main gameplay mechanic is gunplay. It already has a superior story to the last arc as well as an interesting new character to help out the hero of the story, who ventures alone in this one. The amazing art and character designs and decent sound design round off an excellent package, even if it’s only seven episodes long. Sword Art Online II picks up after one year of the events of Sword Art … Continue reading
This year at SMASH!, or, the Sydney Manga and Anime Show!, both Reika and Kaname sat together on a panel with Danny Choo as the host on the main stage during the second day of the convention. During the panel, the group discussed many things, like cosplay, traveling, anime and more. Rather than being a free-flowing interview, it seemed like Danny came prepared with questions, although the spontaneity and humour came through with the banter between the guests. Danny asked Reika how she chooses characters, and how she chooses between male and female characters. He translated her response roughly like this: “For Reika-san, she generally likes to cosplay characters which she really likes. When there are animes with lots of … Continue reading
This year at SMASH!, the cosplay guest from Japan, Reika, hosted a panel on cosplaying on the shows Saturday. In this panel, she discussed a few things, but predominantly talked about wig-styling and utilised a live demonstration on the topic. This talk involved her giving directions to the audience, which was translated on stage by a SMASH! appointed translator, and showing them what she was doing. Some of Reika’s advice was pretty solid, giving out useful hints as to what to do in various stages of the styling process. What was particularly interesting was that she showed how the offcuts from a wig can be utilised to create the spikes coming out of the hair, like with Sephiroth from Final … Continue reading
This year at SMASH! we saw the return of Loverin Tamburin on the Sunday at the convention. The group previously appeared at the 2013 Sydney Manga and Anime Show!. Loverin Tamburin is comprised of two main members, Aya, on vocals; and Akihiro, on keyboard and also arrangement. They’re also joined by Fujio Ryo on Lead Guitar, Fire on what looked like Bass, and Kohta Igarashi on the Drums. You might recognise their work from the video game: Fushigi No Chronicle Furikaerimasen Katsumadewa by Spike Chunsoft. The group played after the Karaoke finals ended, and their performance was incredibly fun! Loverin Tamburin’s performance began with the soundcheck, where they played a short musical piece just to test that their equipment was … Continue reading
