It’s not always that we have a chance to talk with a western anime and cosplay fan, and hence we contacted Maridah, a cosplayer from the United States which became well known due to her high quality Saber (Fate series) cosplay which was featured in Otacool 2. Much to our delight she agreed to this interview. And thus we are quite honoured to have her featured on our site.
The only collaboration between Pizza Hut and Anime that I was aware of years ago was only Code Geass (remember C.C.’s Pizza Butt joke?). While I knew there were some other titles that Pizza Hut also had collaboration with, I was surprised to see there was actually a lot, and most are even blatant in featuring it in their animes. Here are some Pizza Hut x Anime crossovers that was featured in magazines in Japan over the past few years Continue reading Pizza Hut X Anime

Two days earlier I had the privilege of covering Anime Festival Asia Malaysia (AFA MY) press conference at the Federal Hotel, Kuala Lumpur (report here). Before that, everything about AFA MY was kept hushed. Indeed, we were in the dark on who is coming, altho Abe, one of the event partner had dropped a hint or two at us. It was kept under wrap so much that even some bloggers have no idea of the press conference until a day before. In all honesty, after that AFKL issue in which an individual claimed he will be organising the largest anime related event in Malaysia, people in the ACG community was waiting for AFA MY to see what a REAL organiser can do. And also wether or not this will be a standalone event capable of having it’s own attraction or just an AFA Singapore copy. So how did they fare? Continue reading Can AFA MY Be a Hit?
Finally after months of emailing coupled with back and forth translations, we managed to track down Tasha from Spiral Cats to answer some questions regarding their cosplay group. Why Spiral Cats again? Well honestly they’re just plain astonishing. Organised, great costumes, awesome photography (thanks to SinMe which we interviewed earlier) and more importantly they are gorgeous looking girls, so what’s not to like about them? It’s an honour for us that Tasha agreed to this interview. Therefore without further ado, here’s the entire interview session! Continue reading Interview With Spiral Cats
Symantec, the parent company of Norton that is famous for it’s line of computer protection (anti virus) has always came out with quirky ads in Japan like this and this and it’s not surprising to see them doing the same thing this year, featuring a line of USB charms (omamori) that would “protect” your Personal Computer from virus. Video after the jump Continue reading Protect Your PC With Norton’s USB Charm
While last weekend, the news was mostly on either RAGE or AFKL (or if you are a hipster, Nottingham’s Bunkasai), I was invited to another event, a Draw Night / TDC Tweetup organised by Malaysia Games and Comic Convention (MGCCon). I nearly didn’t go. The fact that I had spent a boring 2 hours at AFKL earlier in the day and then drove to Melaka for RAGE and stuck in a massive jam due to three accidents meant that I was really tired. But somehow I felt that I just needed to go, especially since the MGCCon PR team was very friendly and I don’t feel like turning them down. And I am quite curious about the event as well thus I thought it was a good time to ask directly about some stuffs that I wanted to know of the convention Continue reading Cinta Merempit aka My Night Meeting With Malaysian Comic Artist
