Beyond Komiks: Fairy Tail and Attack on Titan Manga in Filipino

Manga covers courtesy of Viva-Psicom
I heard all the rumors. Then I saw them in the shelves of bookstores. I was even invited to go to the book launch (and actually went there).

And on that day, I received a friendly reminder that Filipino-translated literary works are slowly invading our local bookstores.

I present to you: Attack on Titan and Fairy Tail... Philippine Edition.

After the Kon: Things You Might Have Missed at the ToyconPH 2015 (Warning: Image Heavy)

Childhood nostalgia. Fan geekery. And a whole lot of fun! This is how I can describe this year's ToyconPH 2015! This was the first time I'm attending the ToyCon despite having heard of it before as I was more of an anime fan than a geek back then and I have very little interest (and very limited budget) in buying toys. I'm really glad that I got invited this year to be a part of the Biggest Toy Convention in South East Asia.

ToyConPH 2015 was held at the SM Megatrade Halls in the 5th Floor of SM Megamall (Mandaluyong City) last June 19-21, 2015. The event was so big that aside from occupying Megatrade Halls 1, 2, and 3, ToyCon also added the Meeting Halls A and B as their event venue.
