Hope everyone had a great week. I'm finally back with Part 2 of my Anime Expo coverage, so let me share a few photos from the 3rd and 4th day of the event. A lot of the places my friends and I covered were the areas we couldn't really explore on the first day due to the crowd. There were a lot of people on the 3rd and 4th day, but we at least had some space to take a few photos here and there. Here is the West Hall of the convention center where a few Itashas were displayed.

Anime Expo 2023 (Part I)

Hello everyone! It's been about 9 years? I've been pretty busy with my life and didn't have any time to go out to a car show, meet, or whatever you want to call it these days, for quite a long time now. I apologize to my blog fans and promise that I'll try to get back in the car scene. But before that, let me share a coverage that's not so much relevant to the car scene, so it's up to you to ignore this coverage or just read/look it through :)

I covered Anime Expo back in 2012 and 2013 and had the opportunity to attend this year's event with few of my friends. I was and still am a huge fan of Anime, so I was pretty dam excited to attend this one after so many years of just reading coverages of the event. From what I remember, the amount of people attending the event back in 2012 and 2013 were far less than this year's event. Lines were shorter, prices were cheaper, I actually had space to walk around inside the event hall, and they used two halls for the event. 10 years have passed and I was flabbergasted by the amount of people inside and outside of the convention center and the overall size of the event. Let's get into the coverage, but before that, I want to apologize first for taking shitty photos. The focus, exposure, etc. were so off. I haven't touched a DSLR for years so please understand. Thanks to Andy for letting me borrow his 5D Mark III and 24-70 lens!

Event Coverage | SEMA 2014

November 17, 2014

How long has it been since I actually logged in and updated my blog? .... I have no idea .... I am truly sorry for all my NI fans. It's not the lack of interest in the car scene guys. I've been hearing from all my friends about the car scene and I always try to keep myself updated by checking out other car blogs. If I have to make another excuse like every blog post I write, I don't shoot anymore and pretty dam busy with my job. O well... but HEY! I'm back again! Let's jump right into what I have to show you guys today.

If you are a fan of my blog, you know that every year, I post up a coverage on SEMA. It's either me going there and covering it alone or sending my guys. Unfortunately for this year, my guys and I couldn't make it :/ So I had to look through my facebook friends/groups/etc. to see who would contribute their work for my blog. Luckily, I came across UCI's facebook group and saw a photo posted by Seijin Dootson. He gladly accepted my request and sent a few photos yesterday for my blog to share with you guys.

The first car you see up there is one of my favorite cars, the Mazda RX-7 FD. It kinda sucks to know that the FD doesn't get much recognition like the old days, but I still love it and will be one of my favorites until I die. What you see is a bit different from other modified FDs you've seen at car shows/events. The widebody is the popular Rocket Bunny kit with a wheel I have never seen by Enkei, the Enkei92. The color combo is a love at first sight kind of feeling.

Event Coverage | Autofashion 2014

It's been a long time since I updated my blog. Yea yea, I'm going to make the same excuse like I usually do. Work & laziness lol. Well there were so many events during these past few months and one event I regret missing was Autofashion's VIP meet/event. Autofashion's meet is an awesome event to attend if you are new to the scene. The reason why this is a must-to-go meet is because a lot of cars you get to see at SEMA will be at Autofashion's meet. You will get to see (of course) VIP cars, non-VIP cars, etc. With the help of a good friend, Clinton sent me a set of photos he took at the meet. I've known Clinton for more than 2 years now and I bump into this guy so often, he's like my next door neighbor haha. Let's get on with the coverage shall we?

TAS (51 of 92)

It's been a long time since I posted something up for you guys. If you remember our Part 1 coverage on Tokyo Auto Salon, we mainly focused on the White cars that caught our attention. Charles did a great job finding the cars he liked and like always, sending me the photos. Today, we'll show you around more of what went on in TAS. There won't be a certain focus with this Part 2 coverage, so sit back, relax, and enjoy while scrolling down.
