    Tokonatsu 2019 – Thank you!

    Well, another year has come and gone, and as I stated in my last article, I think I speak for most when I say this was probably one of the best Tokonatsus ever! It certainly was from my perspective, which can sometimes be a bit too focuses on the events that we are running and ensuring that they go off smoothly. Since becoming a member of staff some years back, helping to bring you all these events has honestly been such a fulfilling experience. The entirety of the staff and the gophers really pulled out all the stops this year, putting in many hours to come up with new ways…

    That leaflet in your conbags…

    So, it’s been a week since most of us left, what I think we’d all agree, was probably the best Tokonatsu to date! I’d like to spend some time thanking those involved in making it so from our perspective, and to go into detail what made it so awesome for me, but I’ll save that for a later article. Today, I’d like to talk to you all a bit about an issue that, for me, is a lot closer to home. With in all of your con-bags, you would have received a leaflet that looks like the below, and on a casual glance, it looks like a bit of fun…

    Seven Deadly Sins (Anime)

    Hello all! Sorry I’ve been personally quiet on the review front, it’s personally been a very busy month! That said, I did manage to get in the much anticipated Season 2 (3?) of Seven Deadly Sins on Netflix. This is an anime that I started watching some time ago now, watching season 1 shortly after it became available on Netflix. Like with most Anime, the gap between seasons was long, and the way Netflix labels the seasons is…odd. Season 2 on Netflix is more of a trailer for Season 3, which is the real Season 2…not quite as confusing as Final Fantasy titles, but it’s getting there! So, Seven Deadly…

    Toko-R’s Best bits of 2018 – Rezal

    Well, it’s been quite a bit longer than I expected between posts, but life happens sometimes! This week, continuing our series on Tokonatsu Highlights, I’ll be going over my best bits, and what I loved! Werewolf Ultimate For me personally, the highlight of the weekend was getting to play Werewolf Ultimate, run by our Chairman Myst! For those unfamiliar, as I was, it’s similar to Resistance, in so far that you have two teams one of good guys, and one of bad. None of the good know who the bad are, but all of the bad know each other. Each day, a vote is passed to declare one villager as…

    Toko-R’s Best bits of 2018 – M pro

    As promised, I’ve been hitting up some of our staff to find out what their favourite parts of this year’s Tokonatsu have been. We all put in a lot of hard work, but we also all had so much fun! Starting things off are Mike’s (M pro) highlights! “Where to start? Well for me Toko 2018 was amazing! As well as Busy! And Hectic! And one more amazing! It was a time of unknowns in many ways. This year it was new tent time for TokoR and unfortunately, due to time restraints, we didn’t get to test the new tent before Toko. Thankfully we didn’t have too many problems, and…

    Tokonatsu 2018 – The Aftermath

    As the air cools, and the wasps become distant memories, we take this time to reflect on Tokonatsu 2018, how it went for us, and how it went for you. I would lie if I said the weekend hasn’t left us at Toko-R all a little broken, and thankful for the days after to recover, but that’s because we put our all into this weekend, as did all the Tokonatsu Staff, Gophers and Committee that put their heart and souls into this event every year. And If I do say so myself, the work paid off. I personally feel that this has been the best Tokonatsu to date, and that’s…

    How to deal with the Heat while Camping

    Well, it’s less than a week until we see you all, and if you haven’t bought your ticket yet, there’s still time! Head on over to <a href=”https://www.tokonatsu.org.uk/registration/ticket” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>the ticket page now!</a> This year has been one of the hottest years on record, and with that heat comes a good amount of danger. At the time I’m writing this, the Met office has issued warnings, suggesting that if it can be helped, you stay out of the sun entirely until the heat wave is over, and to definitely avoid the hours of 11am-1pm. Given the nature of Toko, it’s unlikely anyone is going to be following this advice, so…
