My computer has returned, and as such, I can start my typical blogging life again. I have some things planned, but a lot has happened since last Friday besides my sickness. The fangirl inside of me will not be satisfied until I share it with you all. Here we go.
The Vampire Academy movie was SPECTACULAR. I didn’t go in with high expectations because I knew the book would be better than the movie. Trust me, the book is still better than the movie. Still, the movie far exceeded my highest hopes. It was one of the best movies I’ve seen in a while. You all have to see it!!!! No it’s not another teen romance and don’t you dare compare it to the T-word. The movies biggest qualities were it’s spunk and action. You can’t beat that. Please, for the love of all that is good in this world, go see this movie. After, talk VA to me. I want to know what you think.
My rurouni heart leapt the other day when I saw the first trailer for the second Rurouni Kenshin live action movie. The Kyoto Arc of Rurouni Kenshin is one of the best story lines and I look forward to it coming to life. I don’t even care that I have to read subtitles. I hope this movie does equally well and that a third movie will revolve around Enishi. All you need to know is that, while the Kyoto Arc is dark, the story around the character of Enishi is darker.
Lastly, I’ve officially registered for my first ever con! That’s right. You’ll be able to find TK wandering Anime Midwest this year. It’s a three day event, and I only plan to cosplay one day. I’m going as Tifa Lockhart from Final Fantasy VII. I choose her mostly because I can’t make clothes and her outfit is easy. I don’t want to do anything too complex for my first con. Hopefully I can create a rocking Terra cosplay someday.
Besides the cosplay and venders, there are a huge number of events planned. I am particularly excited for the following events:
- Equality in Anime
- Cosplay in Japan and Western Cosplay Controversies
- Moon Prism Power Makeup! 20 Years of Sailor Moon
- FMA: Through the Eyes of Maes Hughes
- Japanese Culture: Myths and Reality
There are many others I am excited for as well. I’m just excited someone at Anime Midwest has just as much interest in culture and human rights as I do. I’m really excited to learn about Japanese culture and the controversies that arise when it encounters Western culture.
As you can imagine, my inner nerd was flying high at this point. There was no way that I could be more thrilled with life. It’s as if this week is trying to make up for the disaster of last week. And then, this happened.

*incoherent fangirl screaming*
If you happen to be sitting in a quiet room, when you suddenly hear a distant high pitched sounds, don’t panic. It’s just me. I can’t contain my excitement anymore. Life is just too great. I love my fandoms. I love being a nerd. I love obsessing over the things I love.
…and I love my blog! Starting tomorrow, I will start to post some more serious stuff. Current ideas running in my head involve body shaming, changing society and female Star Trek. It’s going to be a lot of fun!
