Comiket 101: A Guide to Surviving Comiket

Comiket 101: A Guide to Surviving Comiket

A few days ago, one of my online friends brought up the fact that I had gone to Comiket 95 back in December. They were wondering if I may have some tips to Comiket as they will be going for the first time in a few weeks to Comiket 96. I gave some general pointers and reflected a bit on the experience and he told me I should probably write an article about it as it could help his other friends he is traveling with as well. I will also likely write a reflection article regarding the entire trip. Having been a bit busy lately and recently coming back from another trip, I’ve had less time than I would like to write on here.

Sakura-con 2019

Sakura-con 2019

Ah, Sakura-con. It almost feels like a home con to me at this point. I’ve attended this convention since 2014, it’s hard to believe it has been so long already. There’s just something to be said about the conventions you visit almost annually. Sakura-con 2019 was certainly filled with great memories and good convention experience. This article was a bit delayed due to my recent trip to Japan for the Love Live Sunshine! 5th Live. There should be an article posted about it soon.

A belated Happy New Year and Happy Lunar New Year! Last year was an exciting event filled year with travels across Canada, the US, Japan, and Hong Kong. We met new friends, went to new places, and even experienced Comiket for the first time.

Otakuthon 2018

Otakuthon 2018

Montreal has always been one of those places in Canada I have wanted to visit. There’s something about French Canada that is always intriguing for those of us on the West Coast. Maybe it’s the lack of French we experience here in BC or the fact that we’re pretty far from the Eastern provinces. Whatever the reason, Otakuthon was a good reason for me to travel out the Montreal.

After a weekend like that, it’s time to get in some good sleep and head back to work for the week. Just as an update, I will also likely be attending Grand Prix Denver 2018 for Magic: The Gathering.

Sakura-con 2018

Sakura-con 2018

There’s nothing quite like the con you go to with friends on a yearly basis. Sakura-con may not be my hometown con but I have been going since 2014 now. I met some good friends there and have been going ever since. Sakura-con 2018 was certainly something.
