Let’s start with a small topic…
Korean Publisher, Dasan Books released Manfa in US.
The first work is « The Obama Story ». The content seems to be a biography of the President Obama.
Why Korean company creates something about the President Obama???
Dasan Books planned to release 50 great hero manfas in 18 months. Charles Darwin, Martin Luther King Jr, Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Clinton, Bill Gates….
You could see the sample here.
Let’s move to the main topic.
It’s from Danny-san’s site.
Two Canadian otaku (Danny-san’s site member) went to Anime Boston and showed what they got on their blog.
If you are interested in, please read next.
Member lightningsabre shows us his booty from the recently held anime convention Anime Boston with more detailed pics at his burogu - and while we are at it, thought we’d take a lookie at Member Rins booty too with more pics at his burogu.
Love Rin’s bedsheet! Ntice a few ero doujinshi too – its safe to buy/sell them without being cuffed other there?
Attend quite a few shows in Tokyo but hardly pic anything up. The shows I’ve spend most of my moolah on so far have been the recent Doll Shows ^^;I notice quite a few anime related events being held of late. Will you be attending any in your kingdom this summer? The next show I’ll attend is the Wonfes in July – mainly going to cover the event and pick up some accessories for my daughters.
Original text from lightningsabre below.
Here are the loots that managed to fit in my luggage to bring home from Boston… I did leave some room in the luggage knowing that I may buy a lot from there ^^;
So here’s the damage:
Lucky Eva T-Shirt
Revoltech Fraulein Yoko (Movie version)
figma Suzumiya Haruhi (Cheerleader version)
figma Kanu Unchou
Macross Ace Frontier for PSP
Princess Blade DVD
Autographed Kalafina’s Seventh Heaven CD
Aqua Bless (H manga, FREEBIE!)
Nanoha DVD empty box (FREEBIE!)
Samus Zero Suit art from Artist Alley
Two (questionable) trading figures
Bible Black (Eroge version)
Kana ~Little Sister
Nice loot, ah Macross Ace Frontier, good choice.
Hey, what is Macross Ace Frontier.
Damned, those are the latest loots?
The Hitsugaya poster is cool too, haven’t seen that drawing before.
Simply LOVE the CC bolster~>_<;
LOl at the Yoda shirt. Lots of awesome loot, especially like the Raki Eba shirt ^^/
I wonder why Bible Black is on top..
Bible Black Slim Ver.
Sasahara New Jersey
Tell us how it is! I haven’t played an H-game since Crescendo.
LoL I wanted to put Yoko on top of it, but the box for Bible Black was a bit too thin ^^;
I might give it a review on the blog if I get around to it
Took a second look at the pic and I’m seeing Brave Soul.. And nice.. A Kalafina CD, it looks a bit dusty though, is it dusty?
Dusty? It shouldn’t be. It’s a new CD. And yep Brave Soul, been meaning to get that one for a while now.
aaa bible black gives me nightmares… >.>
I kind of wish there was a Saeki route..
RayD – Testament Canada
I wish there is a Ito route…
well i guess it was because i was new to the whole freaky stuff japanese have like tentacles and more…
I love that lucky star/evangelion crossover tshirt ^0^
Me too! And the ef sheet!
Huhuhu, not bad, not bad ^^…
Of course both the “Bible Black” PCGame and Mogudan’s “Brave Soul” called my attention inmediately, nice taste, nice taste ^^…Nendoroid Ouka-chan looks great (thumbs up for this) and your figmas (Kanu Untyo (lol) included) are also good. Well, in fact all you new loot shines with diversity and quality, can’t wait less from you lightning, Congratulations ^^.
Thanks! Oh that’s right! MOGUDAN! That’s whose art that is XD I
aa~~~ Lucky Eva T-shirt (>T^T)>
the answer for the poll is NO. No such event here, well it does happened on February if I’m not mistaken.
Ahh…That box with Fate on it is just an empty box, I was hoping for something cool >.>Nice stuff. I’ve been dying to test Macross Ace Frontier. Maybe I’ll borrow my friend’s PSP again.
Patrick Tan Malaysia
LoL I looked up Ouka-chan now and apparently it’s a rare one. The guy had a $70 price tag, but I got it for $50 ^^
Rurouni Heero Quebec
Wow, that Kana little sister cought my eye first. Kinda rare game and interesting story. Very awkward at times… You got a Prncess blade DVD?? Nice catch!! I loved that movie!!
Nice KagamiXTsukasa plugsuit shirt ^_^
Bible Black eroge ^_*
Enjoy your eroge then~~~~~
LoL cuz they’re hard to get in Canada XD
Anime Boston was awesome this year. I happened to get a Kotobukiya Kureha PVC and Revoltech Rei Ayanami. The dakimakura were out of my budget though T_T
BTW How did u get a free Aqua Bless?!
I went to the Anime on DVD panel on Saturday (I believe). The panelist, Chris Beveridge, was just putting a box full of stuff on the table and encouraged people to ask questions. You ask a question you get to pick something free from the table. I picked Aqua Bless ^^
nice loot ls ^^b
Evil King Netherlands
As you can guess, no anime events here…well I heard of one bery small one sometime, but never went there. Chances of finding good loot would be zero anyways….
That ef bed sheet is awesome. Do want.
The bed sheet looks really good!
Wish that the anime conventions here were at least as big as those in the US
Are those doujinshi in Japanese or english?
Maha chan Netherlands
Love the lucky eva shirt!
In the Netherlands there is one really big con and about 4 or 5 small cons throughout the year.. never go to them anymore, the quantity went up and the quality went down.
oh man Lightning AND rin loots hahahah i wonder how much lightning spent
I hope I’ll be able to purchase a bunch of stuff next year ^^;
I spent $1154…a bit overboard…
I’m wonder how much you spent Lightning…
S1 Prod Sydney
Nice loot ^^. Love the k-on picture with Yui in the sand.
There is 2 conventions coming up for Sydney peoples. Smash! on August 8-9 and Animania on September 5-6. Also Supanova on June 26-28, which is more of a sci-fi convention but has quite a bit of anime related stuff also.
I’ll be going to all 3 – but Dollfies have drained me of my money so i probably wont pick up much ^^;
i’m jealous that anime conventions in singapore doesn’t sell doujins.

There are lots of anime related events in Malaysia , especially in Kuala lumpur .
The most hyped event ever is the Daicon festival . Its like the Comicket of Malaysia .
Chihara ( The voice of Yuki Nagato) is coming here in Malaysia ^^
Hmmm… regarding the ero doujinshi… They don’t check everyone’s luggage when they enter Canada, so… no check, no cuffs ^^ I don’t think they arrest, just confiscate (for their own enjoyment). And when I re-entered Canada, I made sure to NOT say that I came from an anime convention, LOL! I told them I was on vacation with a friend that I knew from Boston (which is the truth ^^).
Ah, Aquabless. Excellent choice sir!
Affian New Zealand
We have a single annual ‘con. It’s not always good and the times that I’ve been able to go to it, it has been rather lackluster.
KALAFINA CD with autograph???!!!!! @w@
When you think you don’t need it anymore, please mail me!!
KALAFINA seems to be popular.
Some other people reacted that KALAFINA’s CD.
I don’t know this, nor I don’t know how to pronounce this… ^^
This is the music project for the anime film «Kara no Kyokai ».
It means, Kara no Kyokai is popular in foreign countries. Wow.
The song is like this.
Kara no Kyokai Vol. 1
I’ve never watched Kara no Kyokai, so it’s my first time to listen…
It’s nice. Kara no Kyokai looks interesting, too.
But I thought I saw Tsukihime’s character…..
It might be the continuation or something like that… I think.
I watched Tsukihime, but I didn’t understand well… O_O
I may understand if I watch this…?
A while ago, an American was judged guilty by bringing Japanese ero manga. As Danny-san thought, I thought selling and buying ero manga’s Dojinshi might not be okay. But lightningsabre said there was no problem. His bag was not checked in Canada, either.
He said checking laguage is not for everyone, but is it true? I feel some wrongness…. ^^
Anyway, even if it’s found, they might be confiscated but they would not be arrested.
But I think some Canadian were arrested before…..
Btw, foreign otaku’s shopping is incredible.
Rin-san spent more than 1000 dollars….
CC’s body pillow was focused, but the most popular good is ef bed sheets. I didn’t know there are such goods. And they are sold in foreign countries….. Impressive…
Figure, body pillow… now bed sheets?
Ikki Tosen GG Bed sheets G
I knew there are many anime convention in US, but there seem to be many convention in the other countries, too. In Australia, 3 conventions are scheduled in four months. Also in New Zealand, too.
I thought Netherlands is not related to anime, but it seems to have several conventions, too.
In Malaysia, there seem to be many events.
« Daicon Festival » lol
Isn’t it Daikon vegetable? Any other meaning?
Personally, I really wanted to know how foreign otaku spend their money.
They didn’t buy any anime DVD.
Their intention is focused on goods. So, they spend money for attractive goods….
Oh, Japanese adult comic’s English version was already released… I didn’t know that.
Also I laughed to know how well foreign otaku know about Bible Black… ^^;
