Here’s a few pics from PAX Australia 2016! I only went on the Saturday which was day 2 as my feet are still killing me from all the walking I did! It was great to meet up with friends and cosplayers alike. No freebies for me, however I did snag a pretty cool Playstation lanyard to add to the collection 🙂 Shoutout to Matt from Digitally Downloaded for hooking up a fellow blogger.
Tokyo Game Show is in full swing at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan and while I can’t be there in person this year, I’m lucky enough to have friends that have made the trip over to Japan. Yesterday we saw some pics from DYoshiiTV who’s over there doing some amazing work with Tokyo Otaku Mode and today I managed to snag some more pics from day one.
These pics come courtesy of Matt Sainsbury who runs Digitally Downloaded Dot Net and is over there doing some awesome stuff as well! If you haven’t checked out his stuff yet, you should as it’s amazing! Plus, he’s a massive fan of Hatsune Miku, just like me! And he’s also doing some col coverage of TGS on his site as well so make you stop by.
It’s been a busy past few days in Japan with the Tokyo Anime Fair held at the Big Sight and the 2nd annual Anime Contents Expo 2013 wrapping up this weekend. The ACE is a chance for all different sorts of exhibitors to be in attendance showing off their latest lines and what they have coming up.
This year saw Bushiroad, Ascii Media Works, Animate, Good Smile Company, Cospa plus loads more bringing their merchandise, trading cards, games plus sneak peeks at upcoming anime movies such as Ghost in the Shell: Arise. The ACE was held in the same hallowed halls that hosts Japandaman’s favourite annual event Tokyo Game Show, that being Makuhari Messe.
Japan based blogger, Danny Choo was in attendance and managed to snap all the amazing images you can see below, so a big thank you for the kind use of the images.
This Saturday just past in Melbourne, the 5th of May, an event in Melbourne’s Federation Square was staged of epic proportions. An event bringing hundreds of people together in an attempt at breaking a world record for the highest number of people in one space dressed as video game characters.
Called COSGAME 2012 – Largest Crowd Dressed as Video Game Characters, the event was co-ordinated on social media site, Facebook, the event was an official record breaking attempt recognised by the Guinness World Records. So we’re happy to report that the previous record of 425 participants in Wisconsin, USA last year was smashed with an official number of 470 people in attendance dressed as Mario & Luigi’s, Lara Crofts, Ezio, Pac-Man and many, many more video game favourites and some more not so well known but taking to the stage as well.
We unfortunately weren’t in attendance but good friend of Japandaman Dailies, Matt Murphy, was and took the amazing pictures seen below. Matt also took part in the record breaking attempt so a big kudos to him for taking the time out to grab these snaps. Matt also has a very cool YouTube channel where he goes under the moniker, Dark Messiah24 so be sure to add him and subscribe! He’s a wealth of Otaku knowledge!
