Anime Expo 2014 Report

Have I really been doing this for around 15 years? Well, aside from the year 2000, yes, yes I have. In all this time I've typically gone to this convention with the same group of people; even going so far as to increase our participation in the conventions we go to by going as press under the auspices of Dragon's Anime and TFA Cosplay. That didn't happen this year. No, this year I was on my own in regards to being press as the core group couldn't make it this year due to various factors. Still, I wasn't totally on my own, as there were others who we've known for all this time who graciously invited me to room with them this year. This worked out a lot better than I'd have thought, because even though the Vagabond Inn up the road from the convention center was more expensive than we'd wanted, they had bunk beds of all things, which were far more comfortable than the Coleman Cots we're usually used to using when we stuff ourselves into these rooms. I'll have to admit though, this year put it into perspective on just how much I've come to rely on Gensao, Pio, and Mayhem for all sorts of things little and big when it comes to covering this convention as press which caused me to miss out on a lot more than I'd have liked. This doesn't count all the other disasters outside of everyone's control that wound up occurring.

Anime Expo 2014 Movies Now Available

Truly I have been a terrible terrible procrastinator when it comes to these movies. I have no excuses, but I do now have said movies torrents available. So without further ado, here are the Anime Expo 2014's Masquerade, Danny Choo Press Panel, and Myth: Legends of Burlesque and Magic movies that I managed to record this year as hosted by Nyaa Torrents or you can click the attachment to this news item below. I thought it was a good year for all of the above, and I only wish I could have done more were it not for circumstances out of my control unfortunately. Still, what I did get I hope does not disappoint. And aside from certain countries, Youtube's content management did not unilaterally make the videos unwatchable this time, and so you can watch them there too.

Enjoy!

Normally I'd wait until I had all the videos up, but given how damn good this show was, I figured I'd release it as soon as it was done uploading and transcoding. So, without further ado, check out this year's Myth: Legends of Burlesque and Magic at Anime Expo.

I'll do a more indepth review with the convention report, but I will say this is probably the best show at Anime Expo, surpassing even the Masquerade and AMV Contest in just straight entertainment value. Not just by what is presented but by how much care and love for both the artwork of the magic and burlesques, but also in how much care and love they have when they entertain the audience, which is something a lot of us don't see very often in too many things anymore. Damn good show by all, and I look forward to next year's.

Yet again, in an effort to be more responsible, I've gotten the pics for Anime Expo 2014 up. Unlike previous year's this will unfortunately be all the pics for this year given I was the only one of the DA and TFA crew to be able to make it. Regardless, I hope you all enjoy them. For all those cosplayers that gave me cards of some sort, I'll be emailing notices in a few days...unless you're already here and have what you want, heh. However, as is usual for all cosplayers, if you see your picture and want larger and/or raw photos of let me know and I'll make them available. Enjoy!

In what I can only commit seppuku for, since these pics are in that risque category I was talking about, and we now have an adult check...of sorts...I have now uploaded the pics from last year's Myth: Legends of Burlesque and Magic taken by Mayhem.

It was a fantastic show; truly there is no doubt about that. It was one of the best events that I'd ever been at during any convention, and I look forward to this year's. If any of the performers want larger and/or raw copies of these pics, let me know and I'll make them available. For everyone else...enjoy responsibly, heh.

Anime Expo 2013 Report Now Up

Well folks, it's been a long time coming, but I finally have the Anime Expo 2013 report available.

What's to summarize about this one? How about this is one of the best Anime Expos in recent memory, and probably the best convention I've been to for several years. Was it the best AX ever? Well, check the report and judge for yourself. As for me, let it just be said, I was most entertained and I got what I wanted and then some out of it. If not the best, it was certainly successful.
