Its been a long while since my last update, and all i have to say is, World of Warcraft and Resident Evil 5 together does very very evil things to your time. I mean, grand winrar of 1 post for the entire September month, it’s almost as if I’m giving up on the site altogether and I don’t blame any of you readers (those that are still following anyways ^^;) for thinking the same. Fear not, the server’s running on annual subscription and my salary is more than enough to keep it running XD. Anyways, obligatory update: Apparently I’m still up for being CF 2009 affiliated blogger, and as such there will be continued updates from Comic Fiesta. So here i bring you 2 of such updates.
All Animax viewers and anime fan alike should come and join in the fun to witness the biggest on-ground formation of Inuyasha for the first time in Animax’s history. Animax will also give you a chance to be the first to catch the special preview of Inuyasha The Final Act outside of Japan. The more fans there are, the bigger the event is so bring your families and friends along too! Stand to win attractive prizes such as pocket video cameras, printers, limited edition toys and many more.
