I Miss Being Weird At Anime Conventions – Weebthusiast

 

Man, I miss anime conventions. But, you know, 2020 was the year of everything getting canceled. In this special clip, Emilio, Garret, and I are just talking about anime cons. We quickly touch on Fanime, Crunchyroll Expo, and Anime Los Angeles. You will get a chance to hear about some of the cool things we have experienced, the weird, and our past/future cosplay ideas. This video isn’t a full episode, but it’s still a great chuckle.

Usually, I would release a whole hour+ episode before I clip the video, but (not going to lie) we kind of went off the rails and just spitball hella subjects. So it didn’t make sense trying to make a coherent episode out of our ADHD conversation. Don’t worry; I’m still going to create long-form content that many won’t watch in the future. I guess this is a good chance for you to see how much of a weeb I am…especially when I get on a rant about after con dances, the H-tai room at Fanime, and other weird stuff I said. So please, enjoy. 

If you also miss anime conventions or have any cosplay ideas, please let me know in the comments below. Bye-bye.

PS, I made a mistake. Not all Anime Cons have free games. You can either borrow a system or play the free games there, but some machines you will have to pay to play (like DDR).

Weebthusiast EP03: Justice and I Talk Destiny 2

Hi hi,

Justice and I got together to talk about some of the video games we are playing during quarantine. Coincidentally, we both are playing the same game: DESTINY 2!!!! We didn’t plan this, it just kinda happened. We also talk about hate mail, those old Xbox lobbies where boys would say mean things, and also how boy gamers don’t know how to act when a girl enters the chat. Our session this time is pretty long so the second part where Erin joins us will be on a different video. Unfortunately, Scott couldn’t make it this time but we will all be reunited soon!

So I hope y’all enjoy.

Hi hi, this is the second hour of our first recording. I know it took a while for me to get it out there but life happens…and I’m incredibly lazy. Gomen-nasai. But in this video, we are talking about the Big Three (Naruto, Bleach, and ONE PIECE) and how it influenced our lives and the early days of anime culture in America. We also talk about which top three characters we think are the most badass. Welp, check it out and let us know whatcha think!

Weebthusiast! Trying Out an Anime Podcast

So….I tried to combine my love of anime and videogames with my natural ability to annoy someone with words. My friends and I are stuck in quarantine so we created a vidcast to share our experiences with anime. I know the video is long, but hopefully, the edits are somewhat funny. I hope.

 

Hey everyone, we are the Weebthusiast! Welcome to our channel and enjoy your stay!

In today’s video: Airec, Erin, Scott, and Justice discuss our humble beginnings into the wonderful world of anime. We give our origin stories to how it all began, stay tuned, and check the vid to find out! Scott kicks off the chat with Wicked City (released 1987) and his first experience with more adult animation. And the boys finish the video with a discussion on the Kenshin series with visceral details from Rurouni Kenshin and the Samurai X OVA’s.
