GACC 2008 – Part III (Videos!)

Posted by Neko Kyou in Personal on March 9th, 2008

Took me quite a long time to get all these uploaded thanks to the bad Internet connection that keeps disconnecting every 10-30 minutes. Anyway, all these are videos of Morita on stage that I’ve managed to catch with my camera which was running low on both memory and battery. Next time, I’ll need to bring a bigger memory card (which is empty) and more batteries. And probably a better camera as well.

And one final BANKAI! from Morita:

GACC 2008 – Part II (Loots)

Posted by Neko Kyou in Personal on March 4th, 2008

I missed out this image in my previous post on GACC 2008 2nd day cosplay. My 2nd set of batteries for my digital camera died while trying to take this picture, so I used my phone camera instead. This was the last picture I took of the event right before I left.

Noh Mask

This cosplayer moves around slowly and almost gracefully creepy, giving me the same vibe as the No Face in Spirited Away… Very nice.

Here are my loots from GACC2008. Total amount spent was actually below RM100, since I forgot to bring money. Was actually rather tempted to buy a few of the models and figurines that were on sale, but they were simply too expensive and I just didn’t had enough on me.

Like I said, this was my first time attending this sort of event and I wasn’t fully prepared and didn’t know what to expect. I was lucky to even remember to bring my camera in the first place.

Anyway, on to the loots!

Perfect World Bookmarks

Easily the best bookmark available in the entire event!

Perfect World Poster

This is one huge poster, although not as nice as the bookmarks…

Komik Factory Goody Bag

The best part about this goodie bag? The bag itself!

Komik Factory Calendar

I already a ton of other 2008 calendars, but this is my by far the best!

Swordsman by kidchan

A swordsman drawing by kidchan. I’m gonna have to scan this up properly…


Bought these from one of the booths, can’t recall which exactly… But they’re really good.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney & Bleach

Seems like I bought the last Phoenix Wright set. Sadly, I was actually hoping to get 2-3 sets :(

Gurren Lagann Poster

This was so well drawn and coloured, it was impossible NOT to buy! Maybe I should from this up (or so says Dyna)

Haruhi, Yuki, Mikuru & Godot Badges

A few badges bought from a couple of booths, Godot’s badge is actually quite nice.

I’m still trying to convert and compress the videos I took of Morita on stage. Hopefully I can get it done by tomorrow and upload them, then I can post them up.

GACC 2008 – Part I (Cosplay)

Posted by Neko Kyou in Personal on March 3rd, 2008

So I woke up at 6am this morning (or rather, yesterday morning, since it’s already passed midnight) because I was supposed to go to MMU Melaka for the Games Anime Comic Circle, the same one Kurogane had been covering for both days of the event. The original plan was to start heading towards our destination by 7am and reach there by 10.

But, I ended up waiting until 9am before my ride arrived. If we had left when we had originally planned to, we might have realized that earlier that we needed to get a number in order to get an autograph from Masakazu Morita, which was only limited to 100 people.

It’s actually my first time attending an event such as this, so the experience is really very new to me. And even though I was looking forward to it, I didn’t know I would have that much fun running around, checking out the booths and cosplays. There’s also something else I’ve learned, cosplays looks so much better when you’re there to see it in person rather than just looking at pics. Some might look good in person but doesn’t even look half as good when captured on camera. Now I’ll probably think twice before judging pictures taken of cosplays which looks lame.

And, I really need to invest in a newer, better digital camera with a larger memory stick the next time I attend such an event…

The whole album has been uploaded in full size to my flickr’s GACC2008 album. Here are some of my favourite shots of the day:

Hitsugaya & Matsumoto Cosplay GACC2008

Hitsugay taichou has really funky hair

Ichigo & Espada Cosplay

The Espada cosplays are pretty good, I think the entire Espadas were there…

Syaoran & Sakura

How can I resist cosplays of my favourite series? And I really love this pose!

Hard Gay!

“Domo! Haado Gay des! FOO!!!”

Ichigo & Rukia

Bleach cosplays were all over the place thanks to Morita-san being the special guest?

Masakazu Morita

Masakazu Morita greeting his fans (read: everyone in the room)

As I was just telling Dyna recently while discussing about a post idea he had, Japanese seiyuu’s are worshipped pretty much wherever they go as long as there are anime fans around. And that’s pretty much everywhere.

Kon & Me

Kon is one of the best cosplay around 😀

I managed to take a few short videos of when Morita was on stage (and screaming “Bankai!” multiple times) and spent almost all the money I’ve brought with me which I’ll be putting up in the next post or two. Fortunately, I didn’t have that much with me, so I didn’t spend that much. Unfortunately, that also meant that I couldn’t buy many stuff which I wanted to. Like the Haruhi figurines. Damn, those are expensive!
