Sac Anime Summer 2013 Report

Hmm…Sac Anime.

Third year I’ve been to this convention, and the first at their new location of the Sacramento Convention Center. It’s a far larger location situated in downtown Sacramento, and surrounded by all the amenities of a down town area, such as hotels, quickie marts, and food…though that last one wasn’t as important this year as I’ll describe in a bit.

As has oddly become custom, though differently arriving in this case, I wound up flying in on Friday, Day 1. Original plan was to take the train, but I’m not spending thirteen fucking hours in transit when I could drive there in eight. Wound up taking Super Shuttle to the Quality Inn situated about a block away from the convention center down town, where Mayhem and co were already set up.

Sac Anime Summer 2013 Movies Up

I actually hope to get the Sac Anime Summer 2013 report done very soon. I've been dragging ass since I really wasn't too sure how I'd like to proceed with the Masquerade video, but I'll go ahead and release it in this fashion...for now. In any event, here are the High Def, non censored, versions of the Sac Anime 2013 Summer Movies as hosted by Nyaa Torrents. These include: the Maquerade, most of the Akai Sky concert (since the Sac Anime staff would not let press in to set up early), the Steven Skyler mini concert, and the Eyeshine concert.

For those that simply want to watch the events, I invite you to head over to our Youtube Page and check them out there. I do warn you though, due to King Records (Japan) basically putting a blanket world wide blackout on any video with what they consider their property, I had to remove the audio for one of the skits. Until such time as sanity either returns or is driven by knifepoint back into law in general, this is how it shall remain on a public site like Youtube.

Enjoy, one and all!

Oh yeah, and if anyone can get me in touch with someone with the Elizabeth Stevenson memorial video, so that I may include it within the Masquerade video proper (with all credit given), I'd be most appreciative.

Dark Priest’s Sac Anime Summer 2013 Pics Up

Apologies to all, work has been hitting me with 12 hour shifts recently. Also I don't have all the pics from the crew this time around, so it's gonna get a little weird until I can get them. Still, here's the pics I took for Sac Anime Summer 2013. First time I've been to their new location at the Sacramento Convention Center. There was a lot more room to move around in a place that was dedicated to these sorts of gatherings. The Greek Festival beside it was a huge plus.

If you're one of the cosplayers and want a larger, unedited, and/or raw version of the pic let me know and I'll make the available. Enjoy!

Anime Expo 2013 Report

Damn, where has the time gone?

Final Anime Expo 2013 Pics Up

I appear to have hit a bug in gallery 3. Until it can be figured out, I'll have to live with the current state of affairs. This means that the current Anime Expo 2013 sub gallery has been moved to another Anime Expo gallery, and this is where I shall place the pics for Anime Expo for the foreseeable future, or until the problem is corrected. With that in mind, head on over to the new Anime Expo 2013-20xx gallery where you'll find the pics for 2013. Among them you'll see pics from our newest member, KamuiX707, our old friend, Mayhem, and several new events added.

I have added the pics for the Burlesque show, but until I can figure out some sort of age verification system on that gallery, I'll keep them unavailable for the present time.

As is usual, if you're one of the cosplayers and want a larger/unedited JPG and/or RAW version of your cosplay, let me know, and I'll make the available. Have fun!

First Of The Anime Expo 2013 Pics Up

Well, I've had mine up for awhile, I'll grant, and I was going to wait to make the formal announcement until I managed to get them all up, but this is taking a great deal of time. As such, I'll just update as I get them done. With this in mind, you can click to the gallery by using the links up top, or just head over here for both mine and Gensao's Anime Expo 2013 pics.

Bring some popcorn, there's a massive amount here. As always, if you're a cosplayer, and you see pics of your cosplay you want in unedited and/or raw format, drop me a line and I'll make them available.

So, I hear a few of you have been missing some movies. Well, your wait is over. In this batch we have the entirety of the Anime Expo 2013 movies that we shot this year. These include:

Battle of the Bands
Myth: Legends of Burlesque and Magic (18+)
The Masquerade - Youtube Edit
Last Comic Standing
The Alodia Press Panel
The Danny Choo Press Panel

Really, there's so much good stuff to say about these events, that it's going to have to wait for the report when I get that written. For those of you waiting for the high quality torrents, I ask that you be patient. There were quite a number of movies this year, and uploading them all to the torrent box is taking awhile. When they get up there, I'll be sure to share them out. In any event, we get to see how long we stay up this time before we're flagged by some asshole rights holders for infringement, heh. Enjoy, one and all!

Fanime 2013 Report From Hell Up

Report from Hell or covention from Hell? Nah, Anime Expo 2007 still holds the record for being THE CONVENTION FROM HELL! So, given that, was it all bad? No. Was it incredible and awesome? Not hardly. Still, bluntly put, they do too many more of these, and they'll bury Fanime. Read on to see what I mean.

Fanime 2013 Report

So...how about those lines? What, too soon? Shit, I've been putting off this report for a while, I figured...y'know...maybe we could have all...yeah, who am I kidding?

If you weren't at Fanime 2013 you MIGHT be wondering what I'm on about. Honestly...shit, we'll just start this by getting it out of the way right now. Fanime 2013 was a much nicer version of Anime Expo 2007. Yes, I went there. I mean, really, there's just no other way to describe this year's Fanime. It was a mess of long lines, crowded areas, and technical difficulties that would have made the place an absolute Hell to be at had ALL (there was one notable incident I'll describe later) the convention and grounds staff been as dysfunctional and downright evil as the ones that were at AX 2007. Fortunately this was not the case, so we should probably count our blessings, because that would have been the spark of that would have set off all sorts of fun fires.

Well, it appears it's the date from the strike and not the date the initial indication was logged at Youtube. Which means we have about...5 more weeks before I can upload video on Youtube again. But this will not deter us from sharing the videos of what we record, oh no. The Fanime 2013 Masquerade Torrent, in all its glory and warts...lots of Fanime technical glitches...is now available, courtesy of Nyaa Torrents. Or you can download the link below.

It's in 720p HD, so I hope you all enjoy it!
