After weeks of planning and living towards it, the meet finally happened. Sunagan and I went on the plane and made the trip to London. It was a first for both of us, never having visited the country before (Sunagan visited the UK before, but never been to England). In short, it was something we were really looking forward to, not just for meeting up with the A-Pers and ISSUPians, but also to visit the metropolis.
Besides watching anime, manga also has a large place in my heart. Although I’ve read not nearly as much as I’ve watched, the count is steadily increasing. Among these titles, there are three that I wanted to give special attention to in this post, titles that meant something special for me, or stood out in one way or another.
Hi there everybody! As the event itself will be coming up fairly soon, I thought I might as well make a post about it. So, here it is ^_^. Although the initiative for the party came from a few enthusiastic ISSUP members on the forum of Anime Planet (ISSUP is the International Society for the Study of Ummm… Pervertedness), the only real requirement for attending the party is being an anime fan who’s able to make it to London during the weekend of 22-23-24 october :-D.
Today's post will be the beginning of a new feature in the PAAS-blog, namely incidental guest posts. Guest posts are for everyone who's good at writing but just doesn't have the time to update a blog every week. If Omurqi and I think your piece is good enough for our blog, we'll definately contact you ;-)!
So, I guess I'll introduce our first guest-writer for PAAS: Pokopori (an enthusiastic Anime Planet-user). (if you want to read her profile, click http://www.anime-planet.com/users/pokopori). Pokopori is an anime addict who loves epic series (Code Geass, Hajime no Ippo, Rurouni Kenshin) and yaoi (gorgeous, droollicious bishies). As you can understand judging by our partially similar loves, Pokopori and I are good pals on AP. I regularly read her blogs and I was particularly impressed by the following one:
So, when the month of september is almost coming to an end, let me present to you the first post of the month, the all-known good-average-and-atrocious ^_^. A lot of things and activities happened in august. I’ve been on musical summer camps for about 2 weeks, Omurqi and I got together for an afternoon of jamming (when we recorded our Eden of the East and Lain covers :-P) and we had a 2-days anime marathon at his house. We watched Cowboy Bebop, Cowboy Bebop the Movie, Akira, Natsume Yuujinchou and Honey and Clover in this marathon. In short, it was a great month :-P. My watching average in august was 5.6, pretty good considering I was gone for 2 weeks to a place without internet xD. Now, without boring you any further I’ll move on to my watching activities:
Weeks have passed since the beginning of the Summer 2010 anime season, and both Sunagan and I have been watching a lot of the currently airing shows (well, to be fair, Sunagan has. I've just been slacking and only been faithfully following a select few). As promised, here are our impressions of the seasonal shows so far.
So, this one day Omurqi and I decided to make some music together since we like singing and since we're only living 2 hours apart (it's only 40 minutes by car, but sadly neither of us has that kind of luxory... we most definitely are poor students...). We sang some crazy songs like the Azumanga OP, some were too difficult for the moment (like Spice and Wolf) and others we'll probably do when we both get the lyrics down properly ('Again' from Yui (fullmetal alchemist brotherhood OP) and the ending theme from Working!!). Aside from all of our failed attempts at making somewhat decent sounding music, we also practiced and recorded 2 songs that came out well in the end. We're both just amateurs so don't go into this expecting something professional, but I still think we did a nice job ;-). We hope you'll enjoy our fanmade covers!

And by the way, our 'first impressions post on summer 2010' wil be posted soon by Omurqi, so that you'll have something to look forward to ^_^. Lol.
That's all folks ;-)!
