Attending the Singapore Toys, Games, and Comics Convention: one day.
Organizing my notes from the NUS talks: one day.
Researching based on my notes: two hours.
Getting distracted by other fascinating tangents to the research: two days.
Trying to find random pictures to break up the text: four days.
Actually sitting down seriously and writing the post: four hours.
You can read my ramblings on Watching Anime For The Story Vs Watching Anime For The Characters over at Animenauts, as usual.
Next time: yaoi.
As anyone who might be following the Animenauts Twitter feed will definitely be aware of by now, considering how much I spam that feed, I just came back from the Singapore Toys, Games, and Comics Convention.
Most of the day was spent at the NUS talks held at the second-floor conference room, where papers on various aspects of anime were presented.
Upside, there's plenty of food for thought, particularly in the realm of fandom motivations. Downside, I have no idea how I can turn these hastily-taken notes into something resembling a coherent post.
