A huge thanks and thanks again to you for taking part in the birthday party for Kotetsu! Below, under the cut are all the pictures and birthday wishes! Continue reading
Even though we don’t know when Kotetsu’s birthday officially is, that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate, right? The Japanese side of the fandom has decided on a date to celebrate his birthday, with the following reason: Kotetsu is wearing amethysts (associated with February in general), and Tiger’s eye (the color of his eyes) is the birthstone of February 17.
So February 17th it is!
If you’ve taken part in the previous events, you know how this goes. Make some birthday goodies and take photos of them, then send the photos to us. This time you can send in digital fan art, pictures of traditional art or handicrafts, and as always in T&B style, pictures of food. Fried rice is always acceptable, and birthday cakes are a given. Include Kotetsu in the picture in some way to show the presents (or the party if you decide throw one) is for him!
Please send your pictures to mail[at]thisissternbild.com by February 18th.
(If you happen to be coming to Desucon Frostbite on the birthday weekend, you can meet T&B fans there and enjoy some cake. Just let us know if you’re coming so we can bring enough cake for everyone!)
This is Sternbild (or at least the derpchan half of it) is going to Desucon Frostbite on February 16th to 17th, in Lahti, Finland. Because this weekend lands on Kotetsu’s unofficial birthday, we’ve planned a celebration! We (meaning myself, Mineko, Soro and a few others who are already on board) are going to enjoy some birthday cake on Saturday, February 16th at 14:00 at the tables in the main hall of Sibeliustalo. This time is subject to change if it interferes with the guest of honor appearance. (It’s Wakamoto Norio, you don’t just not go see him.)
If you want to join, please let me know here, or on our Facebook or Twitter. There’s already a post in IRC-galleria about the birthday party, if you’ve replied to it that you’re coming, then you don’t have to do anything!
We’re getting the cake from a bakery in Lahti, so if you’re joining the party, please reserve a few euros to chip in for it. Any drinks with the cake can be bought from the Sibeliustalo restaurant.
See ya at the con!
(And the same in Finnish because why not?)
Tämä puolikas This is Sternbildiä menee Lahteen Desucon Frostbiteen 16.-17.2. Sattumoisin tuona viikonloppuna on myös Kotetsun epävirallinen syntymäpäivä, joten pistämme kekkerit pystyyn. Me (eli minä, Mineko, Soro ja muutama muu jo ilmoittautunut) syömme synttärikakkua lauantaina 16.2. klo 14:00 jossain päähallissa olevista pöydistä. Ajankohdalle pidätetään muutosvaraus jos kunniavierasohjelma menee sittenkin sen päälle. (Wakamoto on pakko nähdä.)
Jos haluat mukaan juhlimaan, kerro se tässä tai Facebookissa tai Twitterissä. IRC-galleriassa on jo postaus tästä, joten jos olet ilmoittautunut siinä, ei sinun tarvitse tehdä mitään muuta.
Hommaamme kakun konditoriasta ja olisi mukava jos voisit varata pari euroa osaltasi sitä varten. Juomaa kakun kaveriksi saa Sibeliustalon ravintolasta.
Season’s Greetings from This is Sternbild!
As always, end of the year is a busy time. Thanks to all our readers and see you guys in 2013!
(And if you want a touch of Tiger&Bunny for your holiday season, don’t forget to tune in to the special broadcast by Bandai on Christmas Day at 21:00 JST.)
It feels like it was only yesterday but Tiger & Bunny really ended a year ago… This year’s Friend Rice Week wasn’t as hectic as last year’s Friend Rice Event, but we still got lots of pictures. This time we were open also for cosplay and fan art, so there’s a lot more difference in the pictures than in the previous event. Thanks, and thanks again, everyone!
We hope everyone had fun cooking – and eating! Let’s believe heroes and support Tiger & Bunny!
