So, Anime North 2013 is almost upon me but it would be wrong to go to this year’s con without looking at what happened last year. (Please note everything in this post wasn’t created by me – to see that, look at the archives, thank you.) Let’s get going!
Remember CardCaptor Sakura? Well, maybe you remember CardCaptors, the butchered English ver of this show. In any case, it is a completely adorable Magical Girl story with a sweet and powerful young girl. Can you guess her name? Yup It’s Sakura!!! Which means Cherry Blossom in Japanese, real cute! Which makes this doll even cuter!

IS HE THE ONLY WHITE GUY?
So, Toronto has a large Japanese Population or at least a large Asian Population – it’s hard to tell the difference sometimes (Don’t hate! It’s true). Many of those young, Japanese People come to the con. It’s almost like going to Japan, only it’s Toronto and everyone speaks great English. Now, at this con there are a lot of people like me – who are white, but there are almost as many are Asian. You will see whole groups that dress up and are completely Asian. Like this group, only I know one of those dudes is totally white – can you guess which one?
PS: Yeah I know the Kisuke might also be white, it’s a bit hard to tell . . .

BEST ENTERTAINMENT OF THE CON
So, if you haven’t heard this from me before – listen – the best Entertainment of the Con is free. 100% free. It is the large numbers people coming and going in front of the TCC (Toronto Congress Centre). You see the back is where both registration & the dealer’s rooms lie – so there are large groups of people there at all times. People are coming and going, dressed up in their best cosplay.
But that’s not the part that is entertaining. It’s the people around them! Generally, the rest of the public treat these cosplayers as if they were celebrities. Stopping them, asking for pictures, etc. And these cosplayers often have poses or skits that they do for the pictures. So, literally, without paying, you can sit on the lawn watching the action around you. And it is VERY entertaining. And 100% free!
PEOPLE WITH TOO MUCH TIME ON THEIR HANDS!
If you ever saw, William Shatner’s Get A life, then this is no surprise to you, but: we should be so lucky as to be inspired by something to create art (paraphrased of course). And while these are NOT Trekkies, they are just as passionate. And they do make us question, do you have enough time on your hands?
CROSS-DRESSING IS COOL
So, this section has two, count it two photos of different people!!! WOOOTTT!!! Anyway, A staple of any con is cross-dressing.Be it male or female, it doesn’t matter. It’s okay and is actually kinda cool. Think about it: What would Sailor Moon look like as a guy? Or Superman as a girl (I saw that once)? It might be pretty cool!

Believe it or not, this image was fairly hard to find – men seem to cross-dress as women a lot more than women cross-dress as men.
So, before my discovery of that women, I found this:
Apparently, Superman believes in the new Wegmans App. So much so that he promoting it. I wonder if DC knows about this? It kinda reminds me of all those people who use Superman to promote junk in the DC Universe without his permission. . .
Of course, I am sure Wegmans got the rights to do this. After all, lawyers are a lot scarier than Superman . . .
So, Saturday when I was grocery shopping, I found this magazine:
I should note that the date that I found this was the 11th of May and the date on the Magazine was for the 20th. Now, I get the fact that Magazines are published a month a head of time – so May was released in April – but still. Even if you were to say it was put out there April 20th, that’s only 37 days before Memorial Day. You cannot lose that much weight in that amount of time!!! It’s unhealthy and extremely dangerous!!! And even if you consider weight an important barometer of health, this ain’t healthy! You could die doing something his stupid. You need to lose weight gradually not suddenly like this.
For Women First should be ashamed of making such a publication. Of course, this maybe the way they run things. I dunno, I never heard of them before and I don’t care to learn more. They aren’t worth it.

So, I was recently shopping for “Destroy All Humans 2″ for the original Xbox. I bought the first game recently and I liked it a lot. So, I thought I should track down it’s sequel. I was off to ebay where I found this listing:
So, this game original sold for $20 at gamestop. Then since this particular one didn’t sell, they had a sale for it. Hence the 50% off sticker. Assuming said person bought this game directly from gamestop, that’s $10 they spent. Now they want $20 again? Yeah right. Particularly since most complete copies of “Destroy All Humans” go for about $10 bucks right now. Why would I pay $20 plus shipping? Good luck selling it!
