Over the long weekend, OzComicCon held its annual event at the ICC Centre, Darling Harbour. The OzComicCon is held in three different cities yearly, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, with Sydney at the tail-end of the rotation. The convention was held over two days, Saturday and Sunday, from 9am to about 6pm. OzComicCon very kindly provided me… Continue reading A Fantastic Weekend at OzComicCon! – Sydney 2018
Kelsie here, ready to share my experience from Otakon 2018! I am oh so tired but my heart is full even if my wallet is a little less full. My brain is still buzzing with all the great and fond memories from such an unforgettable weekend. On August 9th I traveled some 2,000 miles to… Continue reading Otome Heaven at Otakon 2018 ~ Guest Post by Kelsie!
On Tuesday last week I announced I’d be taking a mini break. It was my mum’s birthday, and we ended up flying up to Brisbane to celebrate it. I was off Twitter and most social media, but scheduled my posts – so it probably didn’t seem much like a break here! Anywho I thought it’d… Continue reading Back from my break ~ My Brisbane Trip
Following on from my otome post, I thought I’d share my experience shopping for yaoi and general Boys Love items. Unfortunately, this post will be quite a bit shorter than my other Japan posts. There really isn’t too much BL merchandise in Japan, definitely more than the West but not as much as any fujoshi… Continue reading It’s Fujoshi Time! Enjoying Boys Love in Tokyo
No trip to Tokyo would be complete without trying to buy as much Otome merchandise as humanly possible. As many of you otome fans will know, it’s near impossible to get any really nice goods overseas, and when you can find them, they’re insanely overpriced. So while I had the chance, I figured I’d spend… Continue reading The Otome Experience in Tokyo!
Another reblog from my travel blog. This time I visited a shopping centre in Odaiba, a man-made island in Tokyo Bay. One of the floors of DECKS is completely dedicated to the 1960s with old arcade games, sweet shops and lots of fun and crazy things to do. Check out my post below! From the… Continue reading Stepping into the Past at Odaiba’s DECKS Mall – Merry Adventures
Arcades are one of the flashiest parts of a trip to Japan. Often 3 floors or more, you can find fighting games, rhythm games, pachinko machines and lots and lots of prize machines. Mid last year I got crazily hooked on prize machines, unfortunately there is a limited variety in Australia, and they are crazy… Continue reading Playing for Prizes at Japanese Arcades ~ My Wins & Top Tips!
Another Tokyo post, besides checking out all the anime stuff I also went to visit some flower festivals. The Shibazakura festival was by far my favourite one, I went to the one in Chichibu which was about 1.5 hours outside of Tokyo. I hope you enjoy the blog post and pictures 🙂 While I did… Continue reading A Blanket of Pink! Viewing the Shibazakura at Chichibu’s Hitsujiyama Park (2018) — Merry Adventures
Akihabara and Ikebukuro are locations in Tokyo pretty synonymous with otaku culture. But a new place has slowly but surely started to pop up, that is, Nakano Broadway. I gotta say, looking at Youtube videos and blog posts about the place, I was hyped to check it out. The ‘broadway’/ shopping complex is only a… Continue reading Nakano Broadway ~ Not Quite the Otaku Paradise I Expected
On my last trip to the Nippori area, I knew I wanted to explore both the fabric stores and a place called the ‘Yanaka Cat Town’. Unfortunately, my hands were so filled with fabrics, I ended up just lugging them back to the hotel gave the cats a miss all together. So, now that I’m […]… Continue reading Blooming Flowers & Cats in Yanaka! — Merry Adventures
