By the time you read this, I’m Seattle-bound. I’ll be there for Geek Girl Con, where I’m presenting panels on fandom and journalism with some stellar Internet friends. I’ve never been before and I can’t wait to tell you all about it! In the meantime, I’ll be updating my Instagram with travel pictures.
- Aja (who happens to be in Seattle with me!) expertly explained why so many fans have a problem with the sexual assault/body cavity search during the first episode of Cross Ange. Parts of this article are NSFW.
- Vocaloid superstar Hatsune Miku performed on the Late Show with David Letterman because that’s the world we live in now.
- The One Piece Podcast went to Japan and filmed this free, feature-length documentary on the famous shounen anime and manga.
- At Manga Therapy, Tony looks at the role same-sex friendships play in supporting manga about romance.
- Everyone should read Kathy Sierra’s extremely articulate blog post on why Internet trolls always win.
- The new season of Gundam Build Fighters means now is a great time to get into Gunpla building. New Gunpla builder Mario wrote some really sweet things about my gunpla blog over at his site, Shared Universe.
- The A.V. Club poetically reviewed my all-time favorite video game, Chrono Trigger.
