C81 Cosplay Collection!


The season is winter, and one thing is always on the mind of tens of millions of anime fans worldwide.

Comicket kicked off its 81st session at Tokyo Big Sight on 2011/12/29 to great fanfare.

Accompanying each Comicket session are the host of high-quality cosplayers decorating the scene. Although there are less of the revealing cosplays that you’ve seen with Comicket 80 (due to winter coldness), there are plenty for everyone to see.

Check out some of the best shots of the first day at Comicket 81.

Dengeki G’s Magazine March/April 2011

Dengeki G's


My catch-up continues. I have opened the box for the March 2011 issue of Dengeki G’s Magazine before I left for a trip to China, but I was not able to publish it in time. This, combined with the censorship of WordPress from the PRC meant I had no choice.

Hit past the break for coverage of two issues.

Dengeki G’s Magazine February 2011

My coverage of the past issues continue.

Although it says “February 2011” the issue in reality arrives at Japanese stores and homes just after the New Year’s.


The cover of February 2011 might be unfamiliar for many; it’s adorned by a non-mainstream product for once.

The particular product in question is Aiyoku no Eustia, an R-18 visual novel produced by August. It came out just last month (April 2011) after delays due to the earthquake and tsunami.


And the package.


Hit past the break to see the specials for that month.

Dengeki G’s Magazine January 2011

Still playing catch-up, the January 2011 issue of Dengeki G’s Magazine was full of Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai related pages, which is pretty rare for a magazine geared towards visual novels and Key.


The cover keeps with the Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai theme.


Hit past the break for the pictures of a nendoroid petit Kirino!

Dengeki G’s Magazine December 2010

Dengeki G's

Yes, I realize it is May 2011 but due to the staggering amount of work I had to do in the last two semesters, I have had 5 issues of G’s Magazine pile up on me without warning. Here’s my attempt to cover what’s relevant, 5 months after the fact.


December 2010’s cover predominantly featured Kanbe Kotori, one of the main female protagonist from Key’s latest work, Rewrite.
