R: ConSeason First Blood

This is late mostly because it was a con weekend and that covering a 4-day event is exhausting. I am thinking about re-naming “Recap Sunday” to simply “Weekly Recap” because I’ve never actually posted it on a Sunday. Heaven help me.

Recap Sunday for the week of September 14-20.

  1. Gunship Revolution announced their first Nationwide Competition: The Last Draw with the theme Trial by Combat. Details.
  2. IGN rumored that Inception director might be working on an Akira live-action. Video.
  3. Cosplay Mania updates:
    1. Release their schedule of activities. Post.
    2. Moonspeak releases their set list (sort of) and their special performer, Kaname. FB page.
    3. NHK will be at Hall EX of Coaplay Mania! Post.
    4. The winners of the Early Bird Raffle have been randomly decided. So break out your Gold Tickets and find out if you’re one of the winners. Post.
    5. Meet and Greet guidelines and rules have been posted. Post.
  4. After a bad question to Eir Aoi and a Change.Org petition, Deremoe are forced to shut down blog and deactivate FB page. Edrell Dy’s post. What happened. The petition. Mikki Eugenio’s post. (please inform us if any of the posts have been deleted, we have screenshots and will replace the links whenever)
