DaiCon 2009 – Minorin Gallery

Hmm, so here goes the gallery. Starting with Minori Chihara.

Even with additional telephoto lens, my LX3 couldn’t take better pictures than these. :(

Pick Up Voice 19 & Voice Newtype 32

Somewhat related with my previous post, I just scanned several prominent voice actresses from both magazines and post them here. Well, the word prominent there kinda exaggerated because they’re simply my favorites. Of course all of them are female, haha. Honestly, there are some male seiyuu who I believe them as very talented. Namely Tomokazu Sugita and Fukuyama Jun. Anyhow, let’s proceed with pictures. Starting with Pick Up Voice No. 19.

Fiddlestick

No, I am not talking nonsense. I am somewhat making my old dream alive again. Maybe only a few of you knew about my old stuffs where I kinda interested to play a violin. I tried to find my old posts again when I was using Limbo but it’s broken. Frankly, I was even playing around with the violin case like putting my airsoft AK-47 inside just to mimic those assassins. Although I supposed to learn to play the damn thing rather than wasting it up. If I recalled correctly, I purchased the violin for about RM 300++ at Mid Valley. I think around the year 2005. I didn’t touch the thing for sometime. Until I got to know several musicians or at least people who know about music a little bit like eccentrical and others.

Well, yeah. I forgot almost everything about music...

Well, yeah. I forgot almost everything about music...

After a brief fiddling around the violin and reading the guides, I remember back on how to play simple scores. As usual, easy song like Ode to Joy by Beethoven was chosen. Simply because this was the song I fiddle around back then. But I am still a newbie. Thinking of getting fully understand the whole song and master it. >:3

This post has been hijacked with other stuffs. Last Saturday I bought 3 books from Kinokuniya, again. Well, I ordered Pick Up Voice and Voice Newtype magazines two weeks ago. Simply because both of the have Minorin’s posters. Because I was lazy to scan it, here goes the pictures I taken from the mags.

So, there, I went to 1Utama on Friday along with linkinstreet and shah_ho_nam. DaiCon is currently there from 1st to 3rd of May for EMiNA roadshow. From the roadshow itself, the selling of Chihara Minori Live in Malaysia tickets begins. Since I am not sure how many people will be there so I opted for going there as early as possible. From my own calculation, there are not that many animu lovers who really know about or really bother to get such priced ticket for her (for some, it’s quite expensive). I can tell DaiCon has already doing their best to sell off those tickets but majority of these people I talked are either not interested with her or don’t have enough money. One thing about for those who are not interested is basically there are many seiyuu out there who have done better stuffs and also their own preferences. Minorin only did a number of voice casting yet somewhat mostly main characters while she started as a singer eventually. I bet if Hirano Aya or Mizuki Nana coming along, massive zerg rush of otaklu will be there.

I woke up early in the morning and around 7:30 a.m. I fetched linkin at KTM Commuter UKM station. Expecting shah to be late as usual, we straight away having our breakfast at one of the shops in Medan Selera (Feast Field if you bother to read in direct translation to English). Then we went to shah house in Putrajaya. I called him when we arrived there. Suprised to hear that he already down there because we’re expecting him sleeping in his room at 16th floor. Well, he was playing at cyber cafe at Old Klang Road last night with others until 6 a.m. and pretty tired. Other than that, he forgot to bring his keys for the house as he left them to his wife in Cheras. The heck man. He was actually sleeping in his car until we arrived around 8:30 a.m. After talking awhile, we proceed to 1U and parked there. It’s still early about 9:20 a.m. Nobody is there at the DaiCon booth except some girls were preparing to set up the places for EMiNA. About 9:30 a.m., Aoshi called me. He was surprised that I was there very early and suddenly shouting “MINORIN!” on the phone. He told me that he will be arrived there around 10 a.m. and all three of us just sitting on some nice sofa there where shah continue sleeping while waiting. Aoshi arrived with some friends. Few minutes after he arrived, the DaiCon members finally sighted. Kurogane, iyn, cholic and many others arrived with boxes of stuffs.

Kurogane told us that the ticket selling will only begin at 12 o’clock. There were also a few of people there with the intention of buying the tickets. So we went to have lunch first. Linkin and shah prefered KFC as usual. But there were too many people queuing there while only 2 counters were open. Soon it’s almost noon. I asked shah to take away for my order while I went back to the booth with Aoshi. Kurogane then announced that we may start queue. At first, there were only three people which I was the third. When the buying started, I actually getting the front row with seat number 6 as guys in front of me actually buying for more tickets. While queuing, chizzu arrived (first pic, the guy with hat and purple shirt). He was the fifth guy who was getting the 8th seat. Apparently, someone recognized my name and saying, “Oh, so you’re maskawaih eh?” Since it’s already late about 12:30 p.m., I had to go early. We went to Putrajaya instead to send shah back to his car as he needed to go back Cheras. Around 2:30 p.m., linkin and I went to Lowyat Plaza. Previously, linkin called Oyaji to come over as he is the one who knows better about cameras compared to me, linkin and shah (Aoshi’s still at the event area tho).

So heres my new camera. I chose a PnS camera rather than a DSLR. Why? It requires skills to use it. Of course I can learn on how to use a DSLR bit by bit. But a DSLR is not cheap. At least a hefty amount of RM 7k is required to buy such camera with it’s accessories. Looking at my LX3 price, I can buy an entry level of DSLR camera. Then again, LX3 is able to capture HD videos. Features are not that bad either. Being a total noobfag about camera stuffs, I am somewhat pretty happy with this new baby. One of the drawback I see with the camera is that the HD video capture is only about 10 minutes at one time (about 22 minutes for standard 4:3 VGA mode). That means if I want to capture an hour of HD video, I have to push the record button several times on intervals until the end.

I Shall Die In Happiness

Chihara Minori will be coming to Malaysia on 11th and 12th July 2009 for DaiCon in MMU Cyberjaya. You can read more about this at DaiCon’s website. I will be there for her. If anyone tries to steal away my moments there, I will kill that person. I will make my days free on that time.

Minorin – Revisit

Today I will post up some Minori Chihara‘s pictures I found through the net. Thanks to j1m0ne, moyism, Sankaku Complex and Internet for those pictures. There’s also a picture which I scanned from Voice Newtype magazine. It’s supposed to be more but my old HDD already kaputt. Anyway, proceed.

Some people already knew my madness with Minorin. So be it. Don’t annoy me with your filthy words. I just love her very much. *keeps dreaming in his own imaginary world*
