Little Kuriboh NGE Abridged One Shot – Capsule Theatre of Vision #7

Welcome to this weeks instalment of Capsule Theatre of Vision, with me your host, Linkage Ayexe. In this fine instalment of our off again / on again series that delves into the videos of the internet, we look at this most recent posting by Little Kuriboh, NGE One-Shot. In this video, Little Kuriboh parodies one of the most influential (and one of my most favorite) Anime shows of all time, Neon Gen...

Manifest 2011

The Melbourne Anime Festival – “Manifest” for short – is just around the corner and cosplayers are working hard making things slowly getting into panic mode as the convention draws closer (myself included) it isn’t Melbourne’s biggest anime and manga convention for no reason. Big events running such as the cosplay contest that draws a huge crowd (get in-line early) along wi...

SMASH! 2011: Capsule Computers Cosplay Hunt!

SMASH! 2011: Capsule Computers Cosplay Hunt! It sucks to miss out on an awesome event, isn’t it? Well have no fear, Capsule Computers is here! Sure, video games are our passion, but video games are a major aspect of pop culture which we also love to cover. So we decided this year to bring SMASH! 2011 to everyone at home who couldn’t make it, by covering as much as we could of the entir...

Nerdy Niches – SMASH!

Sooo I’m going to be different this time and I’m actually going to talk about an event. One of the best events for the anime lovers just like me, Smash! I love Smash ever since I first went to it and I plan to go to it till I’m like way too old to cosplay or something. Why do I love Smash so much well… that’s what I’m here to talk about. Today I’m specifically looking at the Smash which just...

SMASH! 2011 Nabeshin Panel #2 Recap

The second of the Nabeshin panels was held at one of the Bayside Gallery rooms which overlooks Darling Harbour with Sydney’s skyline in the backdrop. A moderately sized room with a great view, perfect for a fun panel with Nabeshin! This second panel was less structured than the first and mainly consisted of fans asking him questions. The panel should have probably been re-named to “Up close and pe...

SMASH! 2011 The Cosplayers and their Cosplays

When going to conventions, you’ll easily spot hundreds of attendees dressed up from all things fiction, whether it be characters from movies to television series, books to video games, anime to manga. Cosplay is one of the activities many convention goers love to take part in. It’s fun and cosplaying at conventions enables cosplayers to meet and be with other people who share their interest in cos...

SMASH! 2011 Interviews from the Artist Circle

SMASH! brings artists from all over Australia to exhibit their creative works. It was great to have a chat with some of them to tell us about their work and their tips for all of you aspiring artists! First up, we have the sleepy Kurimja! What can you tell us about your work? I’m just an amateur freelance artist. I’m still in uni but I just do it for fun and I’ve been coming to smash pretty much s...

SMASH! 2011 Interviews with JAUWS and AnimeMQ

Like the anime clubs from Genshiken, real-life anime clubs can be considered as great organizations where friends can indulge themselves in everything anime, manga, gaming and Japanese pop-culture in general. They’re a great social meeting with fellow anime fans especially when the next anime convention is months away. It’s a great relief from all the uni work where you can just come in after a lo...

SMASH! 2011:Recap By Matt Vella

      SMASH! 2011 was INSANE this year! After last year’s venue selling out and reaching maximum capacity, you can tell the organisers knew they were going to have to step things up, and oh man, these guys brought their A game! They put together an outstanding atmosphere for anime and manga lovers alike. It was organised nicely and everything seemed to go to plan. Here’s...

SMASH! 2011 What I loved

I have to say that my experience with SMASH! this year was much better than my experience with SMASH! last year. I don’t mean that negatively either, last years Sydney Manga and Anime SHow (intentional caps) was easily my favorite convention of my entire convention going life (since 2004! missing only 2009). There was something about this year, and I’m not too sure of what it was, that...

SMASH! 2011 Little Kuriboh Panel

Little Kuriboh, one of the biggest names in not only the Yu-Gi-Oh! fandom but also the Anime fandom at large, was a guest speaker at SMASH! 2011. His panel was largely entertaining and was filled with all kinds of interesting tid-bits. Not only was the panel informative, but it also had a special advanced screening of the newest episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series, which was incredibly entert...

SMASH! 2011 Cosplay Contest!

Cosplayers! They’re easily one of the most exciting things about any convention, and SMASH! was no different. While most cosplayers are happy enough to just to walk around the convention centre getting photos and being in general attendance, some of them opt for the more fun and amazing cosplay contest. The cosplay contest was amazing to observe from the superior seating, but the shots in th...
