Akira Hayama and Ryou Kurokiba – onamae wa?

Hello, Kyra here! This is Onamae wa? #20, our weekly encounter where we pick Anime character’s names and look for anything interesting in them.

A few months ago I did a post dedicated to the three main characters in Shokugeki no Souma, exploring Tadokoro, Erina and Souma himself. Now into Season 2, two supporting characters stepped into the limelight. Only fair that we check them as well!

Our guests today are 葉山(ha.yama)アキラ(akira) and 黒木場(kuro.ki.ba)リョウ(ryou), (main) supporting characters from Shokugeki no Souma: Ni no Sara, the second season of this delicious shounen anime currently airing in Summer 2016. Due to the rules of the Autumn Elections, it is recommended to have watched up to Episode 9 to avoid the pungent odor of spoiled plot.

Mizuki Usami – onamae wa?

Hello, Kyra here! This is Onamae wa? #19, our weekly encounter where we pick Anime character’s names and look for anything interesting in them.

Given how I skipped last week due to Comiket related posts even though this is a blog dedicated to exploring names, I’m considering changing its title. Hmm. What about このブログには問題がある(kono burogu ni wa mondai ga aru)!Uh? What do you mean by originality?

Our guest today is 宇佐美(u.sa.mi)みずき(mizuki), protagonist of Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru!, a love-comedy currently airing in Summer 2016. Due to the nature of this club, it is recommended to have watched up to Episode 7 to avoid being painted by… oh, 嚙みました(ka.mimashita). To avoid being tainted by spoilers.

クックルー!

Comiket 90 – Day 3

Hello, Kyra here! Over the last weekend I attended the 90th コミックマーケット(Comikku Maaketto) or how most Japanese call it, コミケ(comike). You can read more about the event itself here on Wikipedia or this official PDF from 2014 that fully describes it.

Today we will go through each of my Day 3 purchases and some of my friends’ requests. This post will have a lot of pictures and some embed videos from Twitter and while I’ll try my best to hide NSFW material, be prepared.

Today I’ll talk a little about my experience taking part in C90 madness and display some of the marvelous goods that I was lucky enough to get on Day 1 and 2 (Day 3 tomorrow!).

Canaria Utara – onamae wa?

Hello, Kyra here! This is Onamae wa? #18, our weekly encounter where we pick Anime character’s names and look for anything interesting in them.

18 posts in, I still get surprised by some hidden gems in Anime Characters’ names. Today is one of those cases where I had to stop and say out loud “マジで(maji.de)?”.

Our guest today is 宇多良(u.ta.ra)カナリア(Canaria), one of the main protagonists in Qualidea Code, an action anime currently airing in Summer 2016. For the sake of today’s post, it is recommended to have watched up to Episode 5 to avoid being instantly devoured by Unknown spoilers.
