I was at the MCM Expo this weekend and I have to say these two girls were the first two cosplayers I saw that weekend and I went “WOW” at. There were many more that I did that too over ther weekend but these girls did look amazing.

Well done!


It’s old news, but it is food for thought…

After my monumental (well, at least for me) achievement of completing Kingdom Hearts II in a week and a half, this thought happened to spring to mind- will there ever be a Kingdom Hearts anime?

 I have done my research and this rumour seems to have been going round for the last couple of years but if plans had gone though, wouldn’t now be the time for hints to be dropped?

It’s would obviously be a huge gamble, but why not? The news of the three new spin-off games have caused quite a stir in the gaming industry. The manga is highly popular (and may I add on a personal level, very funny. I purchased the COM manga for it’s unlike I’m going to get the game anytime soon, just to see what exactly happened in the story and it cracked me up) Plus, let’s not forget about merchandising! Surely an anime, or even a feature production would be the icing on the cake for Squenix!

Or maybe not. Perhaps the anime will die a horrible death. The Maple Story anime, based on one of the biggest MMORPGs out there didn’t really create much exitement, did it? I have a couple of friends who are pretty much playing that game every single day and they did not realise it had an anime until about a few weeks ago when I asked them had they been watching it.

I want to hear people’s opinions. Would it be a good move? Would you want to  see it happen? Or would it be a disaster? Share your thoughts!

Oh yes. Apparently a boy in Japan has stolen 36 Million yen of Virual Money for the gameMabinogi! Why did he resort to such drastic measures you may be wondering? What could have been so enticing in the game that he had to go and hack into someones account and steal all the money? Well he wanted a pink Princess dress for his character.


For serious though, how do we treat “online” or “virtual” crimes? Are they just as bad as real crimes? Should people be prosecuted for stealing money from someone else or is BANNNNZZZ working just as well? SHOULD WE REALLY CARE ABOUT ETHICS (yes I did just write Ethnics there and had to correct it) and MORALS IN AN ONLINE VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENT THAT ESSENTIALLY IS NOT REAL? I have no clue.

These are the questions I pose to you dear Readers.

Maybe you can help.
