Snapshot: Mikasa defending the fort

I’ve been doing some location scouting in my spare time as I’m always on the lookout for photogenic areas around Chicago. This shot happens to be at Fort Sheridan, once a Civil War-era fort that has been converted to houses (I’m guessing for very rich people). At the heart of it is this tower.

Nan Desu Kan 2013: a patch of joy amidst the flooding

Before we get into NDK 2013, I want you to spare a moment of your time to think about donating to Colorado’s flood relief efforts.

As someone who has seen and dealt with flooding in Illinois this past spring, I can say it’s not pretty.

Anyway, on to the convention report! Nan Desu Kan is the premier anime convention of the Rockies, though I wonder how many anime conventions go on out there. It takes place in southeastern Denver (the Denver Tech Center). Fortunately, we were spared the nasty business of flooding and generally had good weather (though there was a tornado risk for a while). Read on for the glorious details.

Read on to see the most exciting things and stuffs in my otaku world.

It’s that time already? My how the weeks fly by. I’ve come to realize that the only anime news I really care about is Evangelion news, but I won’t let that stop me from rounding up other sorts of anime news. Plus I’ll get to the usual recaps for what I’ve been watching.
