We have held DragCon in Los Angeles coming on 6 years, NYC for 3 years, and DragCon UK for the first time this past month!
I’m going to eat at one of the Japanese restaurants at Little Tokyo for the Robin Expo 19 after. Who want to join me for sushi and sake that day?
I'm sad to hear that Ronin-Expo will be held on June 8th because Sac-Anime is being held on June 7th-9th. I REALLY wanted to meet Tara Sands and Stephanie Nadolny 😭😭😭
Depressed? Despondent? Considering Drastic Steps? "Staying Alive" is planned as an educational YouTube video series to be produced specifically for the Anime and Gaming community: An internationally-known psychiatrist and hands-on expert in suicide prevention will provide understanding and specific guidance for those in our community who are considering drastic steps in response to their feelings of depression. Would you, a friend, family member or someone you know find this video to be useful? If so, please Like this Post to give us your encouragement to proceed with the time and financial investment we will make in this project. Then check back to see what we have been able to do. -翻訳below- A Personal Note: As one of the humble leaders of my beloved community and one who was born and raised in the number two suicide capital of the world (Japan), I could not help but to pick today, the anniversary of my birth, as the perfect day to share this post with you and to get your feedback. Over the years friends in my community have been coming to me with naked emotions of contemplating suicide. This idea was born straight out of that. So today, the best gift I could ever ask for is all of you to feel LOVED. LOVE starts with each and every one of us. Loving ourselves first. Give Self-worth, Respect, Honor to yoursleves each day. Please read and respond. 気落ち、失望、思い切った大胆な手段を考えているアニメ、ビデオゲームの世界に生きる皆んなのために... ”Staying Alive (生きる)” 新しいYouTube番組の制作計画を現在進めてるんだ。 自殺行為、自殺未遂の方々専門に三十年間自分の人生を捧げ成功を得た、世界的に有名なアメリカの精神科医の先生が直接参加、大胆な手段を考えている皆んなが必要とする命救いのウィズダムを提供するシリーズ。番組には日本語のサブタイトル付きます。 皆んなや、君達のお友達や家族、この番組ためになると思う?もしそうであれば ”いいね” をお願いします!皆んなのための番組なので、そのナンバーによって最終段階に資金と限りない時間、体力を使うか使わないか決めます。アップデート待っててね! *パーソナルノート* 私の愛するコミュニティーの謙虚な代表の一人として、そして世界で二番目に自殺の多い国で育った人間として、私の誕生日をこのメッセージで祝うことにしました。コミュニティーの皆んなから圧倒的にくる相談を長年受けつずた結果生まれたアイディア、皆んなの心を救えたらこんなに大切なギフトは他にないと思う。皆んなが自分を大切にし、自分を敬って、自分を毎日愛することができれば、初めのステップが取れるから。どうか協力お願いします。
It’s with great disappointment that I was not able to make it to appear at Ronin-con 2018. My heart is broken and I want to offer my most heartfelt apology to the fans, staff, committee and attendees. I would be honored to be invited back next year in an attempt to somehow make it up to you guys!! Please forgive me-I was very ill and could not travel that weekend. Much much love! Kamehameha:) 😘
