As the temperature rises and students finish up the school year, it is time to say goodbye to spring and hello to summer! After picking up my badge for this year’s Anime Expo (AX), I feel that it’s appropriate to reflect back on this past anime season. Spring season has given me a variety of great shows to watch, such as Tsuki ga Kirei, Eromanga-sensei, Attack on Titan 2, etc., while also surprising me with the amazing show known as Boku no Hero Academia. Now with the anticipation of AX hanging over my shoulders, I am more than ready to start the SUMMER ANIME SEASON!!!
Here are the shows that I am planning on watching:
- Katsugeki/Touken Ranbu
AHHHH I’VE BEEN LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS SINCE IT WAS ANNOUNCED! LETS GO!
- Ballroom e Youkoso
An anime on ballroom dancing…as a dancer it’d be a crime to not watch it!!!
What can I say…I’m sports anime trash.
- Koi to Uso
The premise of this show seemed interesting and Kana Hanazawa is one of the main characters!
- Netsuzou TRap
I’m probably cursing myself by watching a Shoujo Ai anime for the first time…but I’m curious hehehhehe
- Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun
A sports anime with a clean-freak protagonist naturally poked my interest.
- Tsurezure Children
Each episode is only 15 minutes, but COME ON the characters are adorable!
There’s a lot of hype for this and it’s connected to the Fate franchise! WOOO!
- Konbini Kareshi
I actually have no excuse why I’m watching this…LOL XD
- Hitorijime My Hero
YAOI YAOI YAOI YAOI
- Boku no Hero Academia 2
I picked this show up on a whim and I can say that I now understand the hype for this anime. I never expected to love the show and it’s characters so much to the point that I’m begging all of my anime friends to watch it so that they can geek over it with me. Consider me a part of this fandom from now on!
I’m super, super excited to start watching these shows! This summer season is even more special since I am starting it by attending all 4 days of AX. I am cosplaying as Yuuri Katsuki from…you guessed it, Yuri!!! on ICE. Plus, I have a chance to meet Kubo-sensei and Yamamoto-sensei! In the words of Yuuri, “I’m still in denial that this is actually happening!”
I’m praying to the anime gods that I will be able to get autographs from both of these lovely ladies and attend their panel. While I wait in line in the ungodly hours of the morning, I will be waiting to start this great line-up of anime. Thanks for reading!
Dan & Phil describing each other for the Summer in the City book
Dan Howell, whose name rhymes with hand towel, bland scowl, and sand owl, was created when a woodland creature had a baby with Liam Payne from one direction. When not procrastinating by eating the entire fridge or staying awake until 6am, he makes youtube videos on the channel danisnotonfire (which was his username back in the lolrandom bebo days.) Before becoming a Youtuber, teenager Dan worked in a DIY shop until one day he sold an axe to an eight year old. Dan’s Greatest Hits include “what not to do at the beach” (where he actually went outside), “sexy internet dating” (where he invited a naked 58 year old man called Manesh to our house), and “what is my life” (where he spent eight minutes pritt-sticking various meat products to his face). I know what you are thinking, “I want some Dan facts!” WELL HERE THEY ARE, JENNY! (I just totally freaked out anyone called Jenny) Dan is scared of trees. Dan eats cinnamon cereal every day (except the days I steal his cereal). I am sat next to Dan now and he said if he could have any dog it would be a Shiba Inu. If you haven’t checked out his videos yet then you are missing out - a LOT. Also you might want to check out his pretty cool friend Phil.
Get his autograph below! or find someone else called Dan and get him to forge it. Just convince yourself it was true.
Phil Lester is the by-product of two related grandparents and a haircut that was cool in 2006, but that’s okay because he has a lovely personality. His quirky videos and idiosyncratic editing sets him apart from other YouTube vloggers - that and his unique life which seems to attract a worryingly large amount of strange people and situations (which he relives for your enjoyment). If you look at yourself in the mirror and think “wow i am so weird, how do i function?” - Phil’s the guy that teaches you to embrace your individuality.
If you see Phil this weekend, do not be alarmed if his hand is facing backwards towards his pocket in a claw shape, he can’t help it. And he was does not condone irresponsible use of a permanent marker on your face.
AX 2017 was such a blast! I got to meet so many great people who were filled with nothing but compliments and praise! Thank you to everyone who wanted a picture and to those that said I was even “cosplay goals”! You made the experience so much greater for me. I even got to meet two of my idols from The Corps Dance Crew! Blessed ❤
After our meet-up we recreated one of @vicio-kun’s cute NaruHina pieces!! He’s really wonderful to us and super talented! We can’t thank him and you guys enough for all of the support you’ve given us and we’ll be returning with old and new Naruto cosplays soon!
Our new vlog of AX Day 3 in these cosplays is also up! Check it out here! Thank you again to everyone who came to our event it really moved us. <3
