My Collection of Cels Featuring Dianna Soreil

It has been a while since I last shared my¬†Turn A Gundam animation cel collection. I’ve slowly amassed a very sizable selection over the years, including cels from cuts by notable animators. In this post however I’d like to highlight my current collection of cels featuring Dianna Soreil. She’s my favorite character, so when shopping around I tend to prioritize items featuring her.

My Dianna Soreil Plushies!

I recently commissioned some plushies of my favorite character, Dianna Soreil, so I wanted to write a little post highlighting that. They’re so adorable! The artist is Alyssa, whose Etsy shop is called MewniTreasures, and she was a pleasure to work with. I recommend her services if you’re in the market for custom items. She even sent me little stickers as a gift. ūüėä

Yoshiyuki Tomino Attends Anime NYC 2019 – A Reflection

For over a decade I’ve wondered what it’d be like to see director Yoshiyuki Tomino in person. In November of 2019 I was finally able to make this dream a reality. Tomino attended Anime NYC as a Guest of Honor to celebrate the Gundam franchise’s 40th anniversary and to promote the first Reconguista in G film. I made the trip from California to New York for this rare occasion. In this post I’ll briefly reflect on my experience and provide commentary on the Turn A Gundam related question-answers.

Turn A Gundam’s 20th Anniversary: A Reflection

Turn A Gundam began airing on the 9th of April 1999.¬†Directed by Yoshiyuki Tomino, it celebrated the Gundam franchise’s 20th anniversary as part of Sunrise’s “Big Bang Project”.¬†It has been twenty years since then. To commemorate¬†Turn A Gundam‘s own 20th anniversary, I’d like to reflect on its significance and offer some reasons why I think it’s an anime worth checking out!

Note: this post is relatively spoiler-free.
