Episode 11 – Alpha & Bejitaballs

So have you gotten your digital manga on? On today’s episode, we have returning special guest Diana, along with Mike, who are both part of Bejitaballs Cosplay. We’ll go over the Shonen Jump Alpha launch party sponsored by Viz Media and AC Paradise, and the merits of actually subscribing to this wonderful service. Plus photos from the event itself, courtesy of Imari and Jason@i360’s galleries on AC Paradise. Then, Diana and Mike give us an in-depth look at their prep for Katsucon and the World Cosplay Summit competition. Lots of photos! Lots of cosplayers! And a whole lot of fun! Sorry about the mic change, but stick around til the very end for something fun. Episode 11 is a go! (and damn those helicopters)

    Great episode you guys loved all the pics. The Shonen Jump Alpha launch party was a blast and the Library was super cool, best I’ve ever been too. Not Only was getting a look at Alpha awesome but the prizes and the food, those chocolate alpha cakes yum X3, and the cosplayer were great too ^_~. I’m really glad I got to hang out you guys. Gook luck to Diana and Mike at WCS. Until your next episode ^_^.
