First anime con I'll have gone to is Eirtakon this year...gonna cosplay it up too (not saying it out here though, wearing it at Hallowe'en too so it's seekrit ), sure why not! Can only visit on the Saturday, but hoping it'll be fun

Cosplay is always appreciated. When I see the effort people have put in to creating a costume (and if they try their best to stay in character), all you can say is "fair play to them".

I hope I'll be able to go to Eirtakon this year, even if just for one day.

HyperJapan, the big Japanese popculture convention in London, has it's own shop now in the Camden Stables Market! I'm going to be popping in there as I'm over in London in a few days for a very brief trip

I was thinking Johann Liebert might be an easy cosplay.

But, you know, Serial killer

Just a heads up that we got 2 new sources of streamed anime yesterday.

AnimaxTV is a new sub based service that seems to have risen from the ashes of Anime on Demand (it has a lot of its back catalogue). So far it is offering free simulcasts (starting with Magi season 2 , Coppelion and Beyond the Boundary) and a sub-paid back catalogue (even offering both subbed and dubbed episodes for some series):

Quote:
- Bakuman Season 1
- Berserk: The Golden Age Arc I - The Egg of the King
- Berserk: The Golden Age Arc II - Battle For Doldrey
- Black Lagoon
- Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage
- Bleach Seasons 1-3
- Bleach: Memories of Nobody
- Bleach: The Diamond Dust Rebellion
- Bleach: Fade to Black
- Busou Shinki
- Code Geass Season 1
- Death Note
- Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb
- K
- Love, Chuunibyou and Other Delusions
- Magi Season 1
- Maoyu
- Mardock Scramble: The First Compression
- Mardock Scramble: The Second Combustion
- Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan Season 1
- Persona 4: The Animation
- Princess Jellyfish
- Problem Children Are Coming From Another Dimension
- Samurai Girls Season 1
- Sasami-san@Ganbaranai
- Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie
- Student Council's Discretion Lv. 2
- Tamako Market
- Tiger & Bunny
- UN-GO
- Vampire Knight
Watched the first 2 simulcasts of Magi and was a skippable ad and no real hiccups, even without an account.

Also, a site called Viewstar (which reminds me a lot of a free version of Netflix with its layout) has added a few older series to its lineup:

Quote:
- Armitage III
- Dance in the Vampire Bund
- Deadman Wonderland
- El Cazador De La Bruja
- FLCL
- Girls Bravo
- Hellsing
- Is This A Zombie?
- Ouran High School Host Club
- Shuffle!
- Strike Witches (Season 2)
Agan, no ads before viewing as far as I could see, though some series (such as Hellsing) are in 4:3 aspect which offends my widescreen sensibilities


Among other anime/manga related topics, MangaUK announced a few more DVD/Blu-rays licences for the next few months:

Quote:
- Attack On Titan, which was previously announced at Comic Con back in May, is on track for a DVD and blu-ray release next year.
- Dragonball GT will be released as two DVD collections in January and March.
- Evangelion 3.33: You Can (Not) Redo will be released on both DVD and Blu-ray at the end of March.
- Naruto Shippuden the Movie: The Lost Tower will be releases on DVD and and as a DVD/BD combi-pack in February.
- Psycho-Pass will be released on both DVD and Blu-ray in two half-season sets next Spring.
- Steins;Gate The Movie: Loading Area of Déjà vu, which saw its premiere recently at the Scotland Loves Anime festival, is being "worked on".
Finally, Crunchyroll is opening a Manga section from the end of next week, offering series a day after they launch in Japan including Attack on Titan, Coppelion, Fairy Tail and a afew others. Subs will get you back catalogue access while free accounts just the newest issues for a week after release. Still, a nice cherry on top for my sub.

The Hyperjapan store was pretty disappointing, they had next to nothing in it. Selling pocky for £2.50 was taking the piss too.
