Seeing as how this is a collab blog I feel guilty for posting my crap here. So I recreated my old blog. Feel free to check it out here
I'm going to repost my reviews there because it feels like such a waste after my hours of hard work >.<
(BTW, Zeles is my nickname)

So for my Advanced English project we needed to make a poster that represents us. I had no idea what to do, so my original plan was a generic poster that most high schoolers make. However, my friend told me to base my poster off my Rin cosplay so I went home and made the base. Then I added some pictures, added a ribbon, and voila. So I present to you, Lynn Kagamine's English Poster!
Akira Kaburagi is your typical anime guy: lots of friends, a girl who obviously likes him, and he has amnesia (hey, I said typical anime guy). To top things off, vampires actually exist, and Akira apparently promised their ruler/Princess (Mina Tepes) that he would always be by her side. If I didn’t lose you yet; as Akira slowly starts to remember his past and identity, he realizes he’s far from ordinary. With his newly-found (er… remembered?) powers, Akira assists Princess Mina in setting up a vampire bund- a haven located in Japan for vampires to live in peace- and helping to keep peace and order among the vampires, humans, and other “creatures.” However, not all like the idea of vampires living alongside humans. Akira must assist in protecting Princess Mina while she sets up the Vampire Bund.
My Rating: 3.5/5
Before we start, I just want to say that I honestly did not know that Dance in the Vampire Bund was rated MA until I reached the ninth episode or so (I was using Netflix on my phone and I was like “Oh… Shiz…..) The only reason Dance in the Vampire Bund earned its MA rating was because of the partial nudity, implications, and “pedophilia.” There isn’t much violence, most of the language is clean (cough cough… just the usual vocabulary you’ll hear walking down the hall at school), and all of the blood/wounds look fake.
Voice Actors: Chiwa Saito, Alexis Tipton
you have much fun watching Dance in the Vampire Bund! Well, I’m off to study for SATs TT.TT XD ELECOPTER AWAY!!!

I forget who said this (most likely Mami) ...but it's an awesome quote, no? (^o^) It doesn't necessarily fit with the entire mood of this anime, since it has a dark side hiding inside its cute, harmless magical girl exterior. However, that really brought out the characters' true personalities, making it quite interesting.
All right, I know that not everyone has watched this, so for those of you who haven't, I'll provide a little teaser.
Two girls, Sayaka Miki and Kaname Madoka, are approached by an adorable magical creature named Kyubey, who offers to grant their wish if they will become magical girls in order to fight witches. An ominous transfer student warns them not to accept his offer, even though Kyubey promises that Madoka will be the strongest magical girl ever. Madoka watches her friends suffer as she wonders if killing witches is worth throwing away your life, despite the wish you are granted.
I can come up with only one downside to this anime: it's too short! I give the makers credit for being able to fit everything into 12 episodes, but I would be soooooooo happy if it would have been longer- more anime to enjoy! But maybe if it had been extended, things would be different...I'll never know....
If you are sensitive and cry easily, then I suggest watching this anime with a box of tissues nearby, as it's really sad. (I didn't cry, I'm not a sensitive person, but some of you may be.) Another random comment is that I took a "Which character are you?" quiz from this anime and got...Kyoko Sakura! Which character are you most like?
I wish you many happy hours of anime! -Ren

Day One Pictures (Friday):
Day Two Pictures (Saturday):
Day Four Pictures (Monday):
Personal Remarks by Ren: Anime Expo was probably one of the AWESOMEST things I've EVER gone to! I was able to go for 3 days and it was fantastic! A definite otaku paradise, with all sorts of merchandise from shirts to plushies to handbags! It was pretty crowded, especially on the second day, but it was super empty on the fourth day! There was a TON of cosplayers, and I took a lot of pictures so I suggest bringing a camera/phone with a lot of empty space. Also, I suggest taking a look at Artist Alley (located at the back of the exhibit hall), as the items available there are beautifully crafted and wonderful to look at! Overall, I probably spent around $100 on Anime products and posters from Artist Alley. If you plan on attending, I have some words of advice. First, ARRIVE EARLY. Traffic is INSANE and parking is hard to find (any good spots are either taken or expensive), and as soon as you get inside the convention center, the place is full of people posing for pictures and waiting around for the gates to open. Second, bring a ton of money. There's a lot to buy and it's rather expensive...and here's a tip- on day 4, vendors want to get rid of their stuff, and you can haggle for a lower price (but don't be too annoying or ask for too low a price, they won't sell it to you). Remember to have fun (and don't get lost!) I look forward to maybe seeing some of you there next year :D
*Please feel free to contact us if you do not want your photo shown on this site. Overall, we would like to thank all of the outstanding cosplayers from AX that allowed us to take a picture with them.
*Comment and tell us which cosplay you thought was the best in each day :D
