Monster Hunter 4G has Animal Crossing in it because this is the world we live in now ⊟

Sonic and Taiko Drum Master being in the new Monster Hunter wasn’t enough for you? Here, have Isabelle and Resetti from Animal Crossing: New Leaf because that’s what we do now. That’s what’s going on.

Apparently these are Felyne outfits that will be given out in Japan as part of a 7-11 promotion, according to Japanese 3DS. Who knows how this will be promoted if/when it comes to the West.

We all have those memories from video games.  Either good, bad or otherwise, we each have stories to share and here at OTLGaming we’re looking for submissions for our Video Game Memory Project

We’re looking for short stories, videos, poems, art or even photos like the ones here that I took to showcase my collection of memories and trophies of gaming past. 

You can submit your entry to the project via our Submission link or you can email us directly at ewindsor[at]OTLGaming[dot]com or jmckinney[at]OTLGaming[dot]com.

The Awa Dance Festival is held as part of the Obon Festival in Japan. Awa Dance is the largest dance festival in Japan, attracting over 1.3 million tourists every year.

Groups of choreographed dancers and musicians known as ren dance through the streets, typically accompanied by the shamisen lute, taiko drums, shinobue flute and the kane bell. Performers wear traditional obon dance costumes, and chant and sing as they parade through the streets.

Last year at AN there was a TON of theft. I’m not trying to scare you guys, but I’m KINDA trying to scare you guys. $10,000 worth of Taiko Drums were stolen. $200 and a full wallet was stolen from my friend, right as she was paying an artist in the artist alley. After the con, I heard of numerous other stories of theft from the official facebook group and tumblr as well. What can we do to combat this?

Keep ALERT. I know it’s tough because it’s Anime North and everyone is super hyped and we aren’t really in our right minds at a convention, let’s face it. We need make a conscious effort to know where our wallets, bags, and purses are at all times. I don’t want to hear any more stories of theft this year! So keep watch!

☆One Punch Man Autumn Festival Event Detailed Report☆

The One Punch Man Autumn Festival Event ワンパン秋祭り was nothing short of amazing. I was able to attend both the Afternoon and Evening sessions, and here is a super super long and detailed report of what happened during the event! Enjoy~

hidyoshi (hi there! (//// *) ) mentioned about this AU here and I just can’t sit still— I HAVE TO DRAW FLOWERY GOD MIHA AND GRUMPY GOD ABE ;;;

I always love West-East combi so Mihashi looks a bit like forest nymph and Abe is in Taiko drummer clothes.

In Japanese myth, the thunder was created by the god of Thunder drumming on his taiko drum– so there it is. A paint of war on the cheeks because it’s manly and cute at the same time :))



the latest 3ds taiko english patch made a really important localization decision for the thing that was already the best thing in the game imo

I GIVE UP FIXING THIS. HERE YOU GO! This was stupidly difficult to write and I’ve hit a writer’s (composer’s?) block D: I’m kind of looking for a beta to help me keep track of the theme? So if you want to volunteer, then please send me an ask because I’ve kind of wandered now XD

Thanks guys! Enjoy!

Interesting information which you may or may not want to read:

My headcanon for Hearts

- This is the first piece I’ve genuinely despaired over. I have never written for brass before (as you can probably tell XD) and the repetitive G was driving me insane but as it was supposed to represent Germany keeping the kingdom together and driving it forwards, I couldn’t really get rid of it!

- The theme for this song was ‘military’.

You may download this and use it for whatever you want ^-^

I’m sorry D:
