another diary post

I recently got my helix pierced (cartilage piercing). It actually didn’t hurt, but my pain tolerance is fairly high. I don’t feel any pain right now so I think the healing process is pretty good.

I took this picture on Zoro’s birthday, hahaha.

I now own volumes 2 to 14 of One Piece!

hello hello

A couple of people have asked me if I own the first volume. I don’t, because someone bought it before I did. I bought these 13 volumes for $1 each at a book sale! They are brand new and they have shiny covers!

This post reminds me of an older blog post of mine.

Anime Cosplays: Casual Luffy & Detective Conan

Luffy is a character from my favourite anime of all time, One Piece. This is a casual Luffy cosplay because I’m wearing a Luffy gear second shirt from Uniqlo. I’m holding a fan signed by Usopp’s Japanese voice actor, Kappei Yamaguchi!

I also cosplayed as Conan from Detective Conan. I’ll cosplay him again in the future (Ran too!).

My Love for One Piece

This post was inspired by Fed’s blog post on his love for Final Fantasy XIV.

Blocks

Sanji/Zoro

Fan Art

Laboon/Nami/Buggy the Clown and transponder snail

Taking Pictures

The Brook wall art was taken at Ki Tea House Cafe, and the devil fruit cake was made by a cake vendor at Anime Revolution.

Fan & Autograph

The fan was a gift from a friend. Kappei Yamaguchi, the seiyuu of Usopp, signed my fan and wrote ‘Usopp’ under his signature! I waited two hours in total, and it was worth it.

Posters & Plush

The Chopper plush was a birthday gift. I have several One Piece posters.

Don’t get me wrong – I don’t think owning stuff makes you a “bigger” fan at all. I don’t own a ton of One Piece things but I do own quite a lot of anime things in general. I like to own anime stuff because it makes me happy. I like to see things that I like around me.

To me, being a fan of something or someone just means that you really like it. You don’t have to own merchandise, and you don’t have to know everything about the show. A word of advice: Don’t call someone a “fake fan” because that’s really rude. 🙂 Maybe you are quick to assume their love for the show, and that kind of elitism is toxic. 🙂

华晨宇 Hua Chenyu, the Anime Fan!

My posts about Hua Hua are getting views so I figured that many people around the world are interested in learning more about him.

This is one of my favourite videos of him because he is talking about anime in these scenes. There are English subtitles. ^^ His favourite anime is One Piece. MY FAVOURITE ANIME IS ONE PIECE-

*calms down*

Some of the other anime he likes are Assassination Classroom, Tokyo Ghoul, Naruto, Dragonball, One Punch Man, Attack on Titan, Gintama, and Pokemon. His favourite character in Naruto is Orochimaru. He has a lot of figurines at home and really likes Kaneki. He also has a Chopper plush, Chopper hat, Kaneki’s mask, Dragonball pouch and other things!

When asked if he would rather be King of the Pirates or hokage, he answered King of the Pirates. He explains in the video that pirates have more freedom, while the hokage has responsibilities of taking care of the village. This reminded me of Luffy’s quote when he was talking about being a pirate versus being a hero.

Hero? No! We’re pirates! I love heroes, but I don’t wanna be one! Do you know what heroes are? Say there is a chunk of meat. Pirates will have a banquet and eat it, but heroes will share it with other people. I want all the meat!”

– Monkey D. Luffy (One Piece)

Happier Things

I went to Ki Tea House, which is an anime bubble tea cafe in Burnaby, BC (Canada). They have One Piece decorations and anime figurines. There are bookshelves of manga to read. I went there to study after school one day and drank bubble tea. I also read manga there, as it was my assigned reading for Anime class.

I went to Marulilu Cafe yesterday in Vancouver and ordered omurice. It was brunch for me. I went to these places by myself LOL and I had a lot of fun. I think I am somewhat selective when it comes to who I hang out with. Some people gossip too much and I really do not care at all about other peoples’ business… Some people have no compatibility with me. Although, this is rarely an issue.
