I'm gauging interest in a multi-fandom convention aimed at Livejournal users to be held in 2008 in the UK. It'll be a great opportunity to meet your f-list and perhaps find a few new friends to add. I've set up a poll in my journal for people to express whether or not they're interested and in what. You can fill it in here. There's also a community set-up for even more polls so that people who want to attend can give their input. You can visit it at eljayuk.
Crossposted around so apologies if you see it more than once which you're likely to if you're in more than one fandom!
Well the 5 other people who watch the RSS feed for the site will have just had their friends list spammed up with article after article, so I thought an explanation should be in order.
When we moved the location we were storing the blog data, we didn't make a new RSS feed for it. A new one has been made now, and the address for the syndicated account changed. So this sudden burst has been LJ repropogating the account from the new feed.
For those who don't have the account and want to know the rare occasions we've actually updated the front page it is animeenglandrss
And if you want to get it updated more frequently, then PM me on the forum with an article, and we will get it up there.
And for those who didn't even know we had a front page it can be found at either of these 2 addresses:
I'm a anime fan from 'North Wheezy' (mind my slang, and im not telling you where!) and have been since i saw Pokemon and Sailor Moon on German TV when i was nine. I was wondering if there were any Gankutsuou fans in the UK. There seems to be alot of Narutards and closet anime fans, but no Ganky fans. I seem to be like the only Gankutsuou fan in London *sob*
Can anyone tell me where you can get any copies of the Gankutsuou manga in London? (I know about Japan Centre, but they sell in Japan prices aswell.)
Hey im kinda newish, been a member of anime.england.net on the website for a year or so but only just got livejournal. Anyhoo, im from sutton coldfield and am a park warden/ranger trainee after going to uni and studying geography. I like reading manga the most (fruits basket, neon genesis and battle royale are my favourites. Apart from manga and anime i love rock music, deftones, system of a down and disturbed in particular, aswell as the playstation 2 (currently waiting for the ps3)!. I used to be into kung fu alot, but cycle touring has taken over (hope to do some sections of the tour de france circuit in the future) Hope to hear from cool dudes in bham, and hope to make some meetings, ive yet to go to one, :(. I hear there's a good atmos! Rachaelx (kaori_uk on anime.england.net).
I'm from Coventry, which is pretty much dead in the centre of England for those of you who don't know. It's right next to Birmingham. A local bookstore has very recently started holding 'manga club evenings' but they really aren't all that great, and, seeing as all my friends think that cartoons are for children, I've finally turned to LiveJournal.
I'm female and almost 17 now. I go by the name Tori and I have been reading manga and watching anime solidly for about two years now. Among my favourite series are Samurai Deeper Kyo, Peacemaker Kurogane, Ikkitousen, Shaman King and Rurouni Kenshin, though I do read and enjoy primarily-shojo manga as well, such as Yami no Matsuei. I tried ever so hard to get tickets for Anime North in Toronto this year, but I have an English Language AS right in the middle of the con, so I couldn't. Ah, maybe next year.
