|One of the official countdown posts of Gendare on its Facebook event page|
I usually attend cosplay and anime conventions particularly around late September-October, but I decided to try something new this year. So in my first Manila trip for 2017, I’ll be attending GENDARE, an event organized by Black Ink Comics and Precious Pages Inc. As I’m writing this blog post, the event is now two days away. I will leave first thing in the morning for my flight to Manila.
This will be my first event where I will be meeting up with some good friends in the Yuri fandom especially those whom I’ve been good online friends with over the years. This is also my first event that I will be attending that is in Quezon City, city where I’m still not familiar with. I also can’t wait to buy the new Black Ink Shortcuts volume which is written and illustrated by Godley Malabanan. To refresh your memory, she illustrated DRIFT, a GL comic last year.
I hope to see some old and new faces while I’m on my weekend vacation. I will make a feature about my trip once I’m back home!
