[Last Updated 12/27/2016, That’s a wrap!]
This blog post keeps tracks of events I went to and plan to attend in 2016. You can see last year’s post here.
Eventer identity is one I wear slightly more proudly than the one that requires watching 10+ series per season, but maybe I shouldn’t be considering the sacrifice it takes. It is definitely fun, though, and you can meet a lot of people you wouldn’t ordinarily meet, and maybe even make more friends. Good times.
The real game changer for eventer tracking is the JP crowd-sourced events listing site eventernote. It’s like MAL for eventers, but more simple, more SNS-oriented (twitter is required) and just plain better. Mine here.

Still in fetal position because I’m now paying for what is going to happen:
- Dec: Lisani TW – All paid and such.
- Jan: Weekender for Producer meeting, already all set. NEW: Maybe going to Taiyoucon for @3paypaypay
- Feb: Probably nothing…
- March: A week in Japan for ML4th. I won and didn’t win, but ended up buying all the tix. Flight is already set. Will probably go to Sphere (won tix) and maybe Angela (should know soon) the week before.
- April: 765Pro ML in TW, but probably Anime Boston the week before. No way I’ll fit Sakuracon budget-wise.
No omo, no. Well, I am paying for it…
I think the rest of the year is pretty chill for me after Taiwan. Will look forward to the WUGchans at AFA from across the world.
