Hey fellow otakus, so I’m preparing for the upcoming convention season. This year has kicked off for me already with the “Black Comic Book Festival” in Harlem, NY. Just in case you haven’t checked out our coverage of this event, have a look here. Now, the next event I plan on covering will be either Wonder-con or C2E2. Honestly, I would like to cover both (fingers crossed), but mostly I will be attending C2E2 in Chicago. Right now, I don’t have my plan of attack set in stone, but I have a solid month to get things in order. This time BigL will be joining me in Chicago for C2E2, barring unforeseen circumstances. Aside from the cons, I will be hitting the film festival market hard in preparations for my upcoming film. I’m still in the early stages of the film. So, my first film will be a documentary. I will have more details coming though out the year. Finally, I’m really looking forward to Microsoft’s announcement of the Surface Pro 5 and possible Surface 5. Currently, I’m working with the Surface 3 as my primary computer. I love the Surface PC line since the Pro 3. Truth be told I will buy the Surface Pro 5 regardless. Even if they don’t change anything between this and the Pro 4. Plus I’m not one of those I have to upgrade every six months to a year consumers. The only reason why I would is if there is a significant upgrade like the HTC M7 to the HTC M8, yes I made that switch lol. But, two years ago we talked about the Surface Pro 3 on the show and on this website. I can’t wait to see what they have in store and with that said I will end it here, “for otaku by otaku” thanks for reading.
So, we have the Eric Dean Seaton interview up for your listening pleasure. We ran into Mr. Seaton while at C2E2, also BigL and I talk a little about his book, “The Legend of Mantamaji” and how we felt about it. Check out that show here. We are thinking about doing a spin off of OA dealing with sports. When we say sports we don’t mean we talk about sports in American. No, we talk about those and other cultures sports (cricket, 9-man, Rugby, etc.). Along with anime sports ( e.g Kuroko’s No Basket, Ace of the Diamond, Baby Steps, and so on), We are really stoked about this addition to the family. So, keep an eye out for these projects and more of our C2E2 and other shows.
For Otaku By Otaku
It has been a week now since C2E2, so the goings on of the show has sinked in. Have our overall thoughts of the show since day 2 & 3 changed. Check it out on the recap show
Also watch out for some of the interviews we gathered from C2E2, the first of them is with Eric Dean Seaton the writer of The Legend of Mantamaji
Here’s the second show on our impressions of day three,our recap of C2E2 is coming up.
Along with interviews with some of the writers and artists from the show. Also Mykey Fresh has joined Twitch (OA_MykeyFr3sh), and watch some of BigL’s antics on Twitch here
Mykey Fresh here and this is the first of our C2E2 coverage, we have a few interviews coming out. On a personal note, I really enjoyed C2E2. We met some really awesome people, the city of Chicago was great to a couple of Jersey guys. I definitely have to make a trip out there to really get to know the city.
As of today we here at OA have posted a new show, it is a Solo Act featuring BigL this month. BigL talks about two games he has been playing, check it out
Starting today we have began recording new episodes together, due to the work being done here we had to record Roundtables and Solo Acts. But we are back together, these shows will be posted before C2E2. Now speaking of C2E2, I for one can’t wait to get over there. If anyone else is going hit us up

Well it has been some time since I last posted, but there has been a lot going on since the last post. First of all we have posted two shows since the last entry, another Roundtable discussion involving the last Naruto movie.
The second show was last month’s Solo Act about the whole VR craze and Mykey Fresh’s thoughts on whether it will last longer than the last VR stint.
We also have been working on a new logo. We have one done, but we are working with an artist on another one hopefully it will be done by NYCC this year.
So, C2E2 will be going on at the end of this month and we will be there, still getting prepared for the trip. Definitely looking forward to it will be our first time in Chicago, more posts will be made in this month and future months leading into Comic-con season……..can’t wait!!!
